“Yummy! & always great Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

This is our most favorite breakfast restaurant in west palm. We haven't ever had a bad meal, or bad experience. I love the French toast, my husband loved the French dip for lunch special.

“Love the grits!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Stopped in for breakfast.
Three of us ordered the usual breakfasts eggs, ham, bacon, home fries, hash and grits. The food tasted good, the service was efficient, friendly and quick. We would have given 5 stars except the hash was slightly burnt. The grits....were great. We have had grits at other places but the grits here rank # 1. Will try again for lunch or dinner.

“Great Place to go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

City Diner is a great place to go. We had their breakfast one morning and their lunch on another day. Food was very good, reasonably priced, good portions, and great atmosphere. We went around 9:30 on a weekday and was not very busy got seated right away. We went at 12:00 on a Saturday pretty crowded and all the tables and counter seats, we did not have to wait very long for a table though. They are very quick at clearing off the tables and making room for new arrivals. A great place to eat if you are in the Palm Beach area.

“This is more than a "diner"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

The owner is an old pro at running restaurants in PB and WPB and she works hard at it and is very successful and has been doing it a long time. This place has some fine dishes you would not expect in a diner and they are great recipes prepared by what seem to be very professional chefs and for reasonable prices. It looks like a diner but it quacks like a fine restaurant.

“"Hidden Gem"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

City Diner has a cute diner loohk on the inside and outside seating for people who want to be outdoors or who have dogs with them. They also have water bowls should you forget yours.

For my breakfast experience, I tried their bacon, potatoes, and corned beef hash. The only issue I had was with the hash and it's strictly a personal taste preference. I enjoy the hash that has small cubes of potatoes, a nice char on the exterior, and yes the knowing that there is fat in and all around the hash. Theirs is a much healthier version and has a strong onion presence.

For lunch/dinner, I only get the reuben. They serve it on a nice, thick rye bread and serve it true NY style...bag of Lays chips on the side and a pickle.
