“A Tasty Surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

Visited this diner with some friends after a ballet performance. The food is more pricey than a traditional diner but delicious. I highly recommend the Mac & Cheese dish; even the appetizer sized serving was hearty and more than enough for one person.

I would go back to treat myself if I was in that area again!

“Outstanding Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

There are loads of good diners all around New York City but there is only two Brooklyn Diners. We visited the one at 212 West 57th Street and all I can say is "Pea Soup, Hot Dog and Strawberry Blonde Cheesecake. Enough Said". Best place to eat in Manhattan.

“A breakfast treat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

This is the second time I've been to New York and the Brooklyn Diner has lured me in during both visits.

The atmosphere is buzzing, the staff are friendly and the food is delicious. My fiancé had the Tony Bennett French toast which was out of this world. I had severe food envy, although my double decker salmon bagel with a hint of dill really hit the spot.

It's not cheap but a visit to The Brooklyn Diner is a dining experience worth saving a few dollars for.
