A bit hyped but the so called wait is non existent Great spot. If you're in Brooklyn and fancy a slightly quirky spot then give it a shot.

We did like the athmosphere. The fact that the menu is written on the table in bullet points may be trendy, but was really unpractical as we could not remember the dish from just the keywords "Duck", "Chicken", etc. So all opted for the burger. I am sad to say it was one of the worst burgers I have had... More

I've been making it to Williamsburg more and more these days and places like Diner will make that likely to continue. Three of us put in our names and were called back about 30-45 minutes later. We were in the back room which is a little claustrophobic but generally ok. The waitress sat next to us and wrote out that... More

Very cool place, staff were nice and food was good. As we went for breakfast we had the pancakes but I did see a burger go out and it looked great. Well worth the effort of getting to.

This place is delicious, GET THE CORN SOUFFLE IF THEY HAVE IT. It was honestly one of the best things I've ever had and I'm a snob. Only had the chance to visit once but I imagine that the rest of the menu is also excellent and by the looks of other dishes that is the case. GO.

Loved this cosy eatery serving excellent food. Me and four friends had dinner here last Friday 4th March and loved it. The service was excellent but there’s no menu - the waitress will write it all on the paper table cloth! Great cocktails and lovely candlelit atmosphere. Highly recommended.

the Diner has some of the best Burgers in NYC hands down. Also the crowd there is hip, young, and super lively. Go there to enjoy a Chimay beer and Bison Burger and you can not not have fun. Cheers

A friend and I stopped in and sat at the counter. We got the French press coffee that was perfect. I had the strata and my friend had the biscuits and gravy. We were both very pleased with our selection. I love the limited menu written on the receipt paper. The staff all look like they enjoy themselves and that... More

Met friends for dinner at Diner and enjoyed the outstanding tempura squash and a wonderful mushroom dish. Liked the eclectic menu. Gets a bit over-crowded, but that's not uncommon for the area.

Had the most amazing brunch - staff writes out the menu on your table. Pancakes eggs Benny, even scrambled eggs were transformed into memorable dishes. Can't wait to go back.
