This restaurant is diner style. They serve everything 24h a day. The food was good and the service was fast. However since it's a diner you hardly spend there more time. So all was good but nothing extraordinary.

The Bel Aire Diner is exactly what you would expect from a diner: wide menu, big portions, adequate food. What makes the Bel Aire stand out is the service. Our waiter was a charming guy, so friendly and funny. The food is fine. Nothing to write home about. But if you want the diner experience, everything about this place is... More

Big diner with massive menu. If you can't find anything to eat here you're not trying. They serve breakfast all day, offer burgers, etc., restaurant-type entrees, veggie, Mexican and Greek specialties. Okay good for when you're in a rush.

We had breakfast at the Bellaire diner, which is usually very good but unfortunately this time around it was not an enjoyable experience. We always like how they start the meal with the muffins, but the muffins we received were stale, seemed like they were a few days old. This wasn’t a good start to the meal. For breakfast, I... More

This is no fast food restaurant. Be prepared for a twenty page menu offering almost anything you can think of - of an ethnic nature. Since this is a 'Greek' diner, I tried a Greek Salad for dinner. Outstanding! Two mornings later we returned and I tried a 'Greek Breakfast.' It was very interesting as well. I figured the 'Greek'... More

Food is great, only thing you could say is that plate sizes are perhaps even a little too intimidatingly huge. Service is fabulous - when our son left his backpack they even came after us and caught us before we got on the train downtown! If you stay in the area, go and start your day there!

Stayed 6 days in the area and after our 1st meal there, had breakfast every day! Food was good and the service was, without being overbearing, very good. Place was always quite busy, but we didn't have to wait long, and as soon as you sat down you were offered tea or coffee, it was also clean. Menu was quite... More

Breakfast food is great but overpriced. Service could have been a bit faster, but the diner was busy, so understandable. Overall not bad for the only 24 hours open offerings. Though I prefer the Neptune Diner.

Stopped for dinner while on a bus trip. While our bus load filled the remaining available seating to capacity, our drink and food orders were taken fairly quickly. We received our orders in timely fashion. The servers were great and the food was awesome! I ordered the Broadway Burger Deluxe. Came with french fries, coleslaw and a dill pickle. Food... More
