Worth every penny Fabulous food brilliant entertainment! Some people may not enjoy how close you sit to others. I felt it's a marvellous experience not to be missed. Not cheap but worth it. My only criticism would be not to come round with a bucket as most people tip anyway at the end! Give it a try it's really worth... More

We loved this restaurant! Our favourite in NYC, food was great, portions huge, & staff brilliant. We queued outside for 45mins but the girl kept popping back outside to let everyone know how long it would be. The singing waiters & waitresses are all amazing, I don't know how they're not all on Broadway! Very talented bunch of people. We... More

I love this place for what it is! It's not an expensive restaurant off Times Square. It's a typical cheap fast food burger place! I have to say the food is very average and the hygiene of the place isn't great but the staff and the entertainment make it worth going back and back again! A must see when in... More

Ellen's Stardust Diner can be visited once to satisfy your curiosity as there are Extremely LONG lines. VERY Overpriced food and poor quality furniture. There are far better restaurants to go to in NY

So entertaining, such talented and professional singers! Food and service was excellent, but what's with those dry, crumbly tater tots? Atmosphere was so much fun. Our waitress sang a song from Tangled. We highly recommend it and will definitely go back.

Pretty decent food (went for breakfast), in a very amazing atmosphere. Staff sings whilst you eat and therefore make the whole experience far more entertaining. Long queues but quite fast.

Visited Ellen's Stardust Diner on a very cold Monday evening. We had to queue for 15 minutes but the wait was worth it! Luckily we were sat in the main floor area and were entertained to fantastic singing performances from the waiting staff which was top quality. The food was good too and yes it may have been more expensive... More

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.
