Stopped for dinner after a long day. We were seated straight away and the food was delivered quickly, with good-sized portions. A children's menu is also available. A tasty main meal and dessert and attentive service resulted in us returning for a second night.

This diner is terrific. The decor is fresh and modern and always feels clean and welcoming. Delicious mixed drink coffees for brunch. Yummy grilled cheese. Enjoy going here for breakfast. Attentive service. Always fill my coffee cup. Fresh squeezed orange juice. Delicious waffles.

My wife, son and I stopped at this restaurant having walked for miles around the Big Apple and then got off the boat at Pier 78 Although my enquiry for the soup of the Day was not provided, this was the only complaint. We had three entrees and an appetiser at the same time as we requested. All of the... More

We stopped here for breakfast before heading home to PA. The breakfast menu is extensive so there's something for every taste. Since we wanted something fairly healthy and not loaded with calories we both ordered the Caprese frittata. It's served with home fries and toast. The frittata consisted of chopped tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic, with mozzarella cheese melted over the... More

Family of five ate for $61. Food was perfect, eggs were fresh and iced coffee perfect. Service was great. Everyone left full and satisfied. Just a great American breakfast.

We were early to see the show next door, Trip of Love. Since we had eaten an early dinner, we went in for snacks. We were 4 people. One ordered a planter's punch as depicted on the placemat. The waiter didn't seem to know what it was, and the person in our party showed him the picture, and a slice... More

The food is not bad. Average diner fare but it is very expensive for what it is. Much better at the Westway diner in 9th st..

Went here most mornings on our New York trip. Was a lovely little diner. Amazing breakfast. Good value for money. Staff were very friendly and made our trip very memorable. We stayed at the Yotel and this diner was just around the corner. Perfect place for everyone.

Given that everything in New York is expected to be expensive, this diner definitely wasn't. There is a range of options on the menu and they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. We had breakfast and I could not fault it. The service was fantastic and most importantly it was very quick. The staff were polite and did everything they could... More

Big servings but food does not tastes good. I had a chicken cordon Bleu ("today's special) and it came swimming on a tasteless soup with some poor rice, chicken was undercooked - raw.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
