The Skylark is far from the classic diner. Sure you can get pancakes and burgers but the menu is so amazing that it takes half an hour just to make up your mind! A must eat!!

First time visit to this diner. Food was good but a bit pricey for "diner" food. Service was excellent. Would definitely return here.

Typical diner. Large selection of food choices. Nightly specials. Nothing different that you can't find in any other diner. Our waiter Kailash was very good. Friendly, & efficient.

decent food. Think that it was a little slow since it was after a funeral. However, meal was decent. My meal came with an undercooked burger which had to go back. Waited and dined on the new one. Overall, service was fine.

Great appetizers and cocktail menu for a light snack or late dinner. The Garlic Shrimp and Chicken Pad Thai were excellent and enough to share. Martini and Antny made for a fine evening!
