Ate there with my family on a busy Saturday morning. We were seated and served quickly and the service made a point to check back with us regularly. Food was decent, although nothing special. Prices were excellent compared to most of the places serving breakfast in Times Square. I would definitely recommend this place if looking or a quick breakfast to start your day in Midtown.

We went there and food was mediocre, and our server was really terrible. He was just very hard to get hold of, and when we finally got his attention and asked a question, he actually said "I don't have a time for this". We were speechless. Then why was he there? He never checked on us unless we tried very hard to get his attention. And even when we got his attention, he was too busy doing something else and he did not treat us as customers.

We usually leave decent tip, but for the first time, we left him a minimum 15% and tipped the other server who helped us finding our server, filling our drinks, and provided some service while our server was not available.

It was our worst dining experience in 2012.

This establishment really needs to rethink its title perhaps to the Worstway Diner. Having read reviews we decided to give our two teenagers a surprise on their first NY visit with a trip to one of the recommended Diners in NY. It was Christmas Night and we thought that it would be an unusual change in a dining experience for that day, we were right, it was. Our waiter showed little interest in our presence and at one stage walked away from the table mid order. The food when it arrived, both appetizers and entrees within moments of each other, was essentially inedible. To have this with one dish is unacceptable to have it with all dishes is an achievement in incompetence. Despite the fact that we clearly were not making any progress in eating our dishes our waiter steered a careful course away from our table to avoid confrontation. When we flagged down another waiter to ask for the bill he passed no comment on the still full plates. We indicated that the food wasn’t very good but this didn’t elicit any reaction from him. With the day that it was we didn’t complain any further at the cash desk as the manager didn’t even enquire if we enjoyed our meal, perhaps he had eaten there also and knew better! It may be acceptable for breakfast but certainly not for any food substance that requires cooking. Steer clear.

We just happened to stop by this diner and really liked it. The decaf coffee was good and the portions were big. I also liked the orange juice and oatmeal.
