The food in Diner is exceptionally good, with a brilliantly thought out, innovative menu written directly onto your table cloth by the waiter/waitress. They're also lovely, engaging, good fun, well versed in all the menu selections including the wine and beer. Diner itself is a great location under the Willamsburg Bridge in Brooklyn, so in a real old-skool part of... More

Greek Salad without Olives??? Overpriced and service is horrible. the waitress didn't even came-by after she brought the food if I need anything else, she rushed to get my order. But they were seating right next to my table chit-chatting! I don't mind paying for a good food and good service.

We really enjoyed the food at the diner. Delicious menu. Really nice burgers with home made ketchup and mustard. Friendly waiter. We are recommending to anybody.

We recently had dinner at this unassuming looking diner on a hard to find address in Brooklyn. Wow! I can safely say I ate the best pork chop in my life. Food innovative and fresh, but still familiar dishes. Very casual place where you are made to feel at home. Started with cocktails which were delicious. The 'menu' is described... More

This old diner car, which is hard to find since (in classic Williamsburg fashion) there is no clear signage until you walk through the front door. But the food is a revelation. Creative takes on breakfast and lunch fare. Wonderful herbs and sauces. You'll think it's a fast food place from the surroundings, but it's far from such.

The first time we ate at Diner, a light lunch for two it all went pretty okay. Love the old interior diner space and they have a nice terrace. More recently (Tuesday Oct 14, 2014) a small group of six went in for a dinner with a rather different experience... Starting with the embarrassing, (mostly for us but I'm sure... More

My partner and I were in Brooklyn and he suggested Diner as he had been there many years before. I was doubtful when we saw the outside of the place... and let him poke his head in first, to make sure it was the right place. It is pretty much a hole in the wall with no sign. Well, thankfully...

Great food and atmosphere. A little too much of of the Brooklyn 'tude but they delivered with goods. Not cheap.

Old and cool diner interior, especially the floor tiles (the wooden bench seats: not so cool). No food menu: they actually write the food offerings of the day on the paper on your table (an affectation: you can't read it after the waitress is gone!), and offerings, which change daily depending on what's available, are extremely fresh, wonderfully and unusually...

After a really early flight to New York, no breakfast, and a hungry belly, we walked around the corner form our apartment in Williamsburg to Diner. If your looking for something a little more upscale you wouldn't think about this place because from the outside it looks kinda pitiful, but I'm telling you walk in! When you get inside, don't...
