“Great diner food”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

Homemade cheese Blintzes with raspberry sauce, a juicy hamburger, and pancakes with real maple syrup were the choices made for our Sunday brunch. Busy diner on corner of Broadway and 100th Street. We had a short wait before a table was ready for 3. Reasonably priced.

“Worth a miss”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

The diner serves American food (burgers, fries, wings, milkshake) and has a typical deco. You can pass on the wings and mac&cheese; they are not too great. The burger is fine.

Given its location, it's only worth going if u r in the vicinity and you feel like eating American food. They also include service in their bill.

“Great breakfast specials at Metro Diner!”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Metro Diner was our breakfast stop for several days in New York. We stayed at the Marrakech Hotel on Broadway, and the diner was a recommendation from hotel staff.

Once inside, the diner looks just like what you would expect: booths along the walls and a counter with stools alongside. For breakfast, the Metro Diner offers breakfast specials (you order by the number) that include your entree plus coffee or hot tea. These are all pretty good portions (except for the Belgian waffle), and getting the beverage as part of the special is a nice plus.

Tips: Try to get seated in the front section of the diner. The waiter there is a stitch and does a great job of getting you what you ask for. Even requests we didn't think he heard magically appeared. Chocolate chip pancakes were excellent! Strawberry pancakes (they cooked the strawberries inside) were not good. Metro Diner is very family friendly!
