“Just OK Diner Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Went here Sunday for an inexpensive brunch/breakfast. Pretty much like any typical diner, Service was friendly and attentive. Place is clean and large, but booths are somewhat small. I'm no huge bodybuilder but definitely healthy and fit and just not a lot of wiggle room especially in a group of 3 or 4. But atmosphere, service and food is nothing to write home about or to go out of your way to visit. If you happen to be in the neighborhood looking for some inexpensive diner food/experience, probably will fit the bill for you. Doubt i'll return though, think there's other places at this price point with better food. And there is another 'Malibu' diner in Hoboken, which IS worth a visit.

Alex G, Owner at Malibu Diner, responded to this review, August 13, 2013
Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts! While we're happy to hear our food fit the bill at the time, we're sorry to see it didn't "wow" you enough to warrant a second visit. As a local business, customer feedback is incredibly important as it gives us great food for thought on where we can improve. That said, is there something in specific that just didn't blow you away about our food? We're all ears!

Cheers,
Alex & Andy

“Excellent American Diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

We ate here for breakfast on our first morning in New York and returned a couple of times more during our stay. The food and service was excellent, exactly the type of food and atmosphere we were hoping to experience when in New York. Pancakes with bacon and the eggs with potato and toast were very nice and we would definitely recommend as a great place to start your day. We will be back next time we visit New York for sure!
