Feels comfortable here. Friendly competent service. Extensive menu. Tasty food served promptly. Worth the trip from your neighborhood to this one. Bright, clean and fairly priced.

I prefer to eat at diners when in NYC--they are unassuming, reasonably priced, and usually provide halfway decent food. Metro Diner stands out. I was there for brunch and had a great veggie skillet washed down with good coffee and a very reasonably-priced mimosa. They veggies were fresh and eggs not the overcooked mess that is the usual diner fair.... More

We went for brunch on a Sunday. The place was quite packed but we were seated quickly and served by a lovely friendly lady. The servings were very copious. I had just an appetiser (houmous, babaganoush, tahine and falafel with pitta bread) but it was enough for a meal! Washed down with a glass of merlot (ask for wine although... More

We had dinner here with hamburgers and french fries with special dips. It was good food but nothing extraordenary. So when your hungry , this is the right place. The menue has a large variety as well as the drinks and the price is desent. The staff was very nice. They nothing wrong, they just didn't meet our expectations.

We enjoyed a breakfast at the Metro while visiting family in NYC. Fairly standard fare was offered but done well. The best part of the dining experience was our seating...at the front corner with views of Broadway. Attentive service and reasonable pricing.

Inside the Metro is pretty nice for a diner. The food is good and they try to get you in and out fast. I guess because there are few diners left, this one draws a large crowd. So if you are going at a busy time expect to wait. Also, a tad pricey for a diner.

A wonderful diner for all the diner comfort food ( and not-so-comfort food!). The waitstaff is knowledgeable and service is fast. They allow you to linger. From grilled cheese to salads to pastas you cannot go wrong. Nice art deco-ish diner decor. Sit by the window and watch the world go by while you sip cofee and read.

We used GrubHub to place an order after we got back from a concert. It was fast and delicious! They even have grilled cheese! Great night munchies.

I was looking for a lite lunch, saving room for dinner out with friends & family. I ate every bite! It was the freshest salad I have ever had. You pick one item from one section, 2 from another and then 6 from the last.

I joined a friend for breakfast. The food is always acceptable but generally only average compared to other places. I had a Belgian waffle that was a bit too "doughy." That said, this place is a popular neighborhood stalwart --- always busy with many very loyal patrons.
