“Way too expensive for a standard diner”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Diner's essentially operate like the town cafeteria - you can get a little of anything and most of it is OK. Pleasantville Diner holds to this rule - the decent food is served by fairly attentive staff in an adequate room with the old-fashion round-stool bar. The problem here lies solely in the prices. Breakfasts run north of $10 and other meals north of $20. It takes some of the comfort out of the comfort food you went into a diner to experience. In short, eat at the cafeteria at work.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

I've been a customer for almost 10 years. The pluses: very clean and nice looking; great french toast, very good salads. The minuses: a little overpriced; omelets aren't good and I always seem to order one with the hope that it will be..everything else on the menu is just ok. Reason I keep going back is that's it's the only decent diner in the Pleasantville-Briarcliff area. If willing to drive the Bedford Hills Diner is much better.

“What can you say about a diner?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

There are 2 choices for diners in this area. This is average - the food is ok, the service is ok. Good for breakfast on the weekend, or something to eat after the movie.

“Great food, attentive service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

We've enjoyed many meals here and the food is consistently good. The staff is attentive and friendly. The decor is retro diner and can get crowded especially on holiday weekends for breakfast.

“Not the best”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2012

This is cute place. Very retro looking. The food is not good. I have been here several times. Had a very over cooked burger one night and a sub par pastrami sandwich on another night. The last time I was I figured "how can they mess up a grilled cheese sandwich? "They did. Won't be back.
