Diner Reviews
  • "The wait staff is handsome, charming and personable. The food is amazing and inexpensive. We've had dinner several times in the city at more expensive places and yet The Brooklyn Diner Times Square was the best experience yet and more than half the price. We made a reservation via OpenTable the day before and were headed to see Hedwig at The Belasco later that night. The entire evening was incredible. I can't recommend this place enough. The pot roast and kugle are AMAZING! Great pastrami too."

  • "Great food and service in a convenient pre-theater location. Don't expect diner prices, though. The pricing was not posted on Open Table and the prices are very high. A bowl of soup was $12!"

  • "We were totally on sensory overload in Times Square and ducked in here for some quiet and comfort food. Split pea soup and chicken parm were yummy and the staff was friendly and attentive."

  • "We were two adults and four kids after a Broadway show. We adults weren't expecting much - but the food was a bit worse than expected. For example, I did not foresee that the chocolate milk for the kids would have a horrible after taste. On the up side, the service was really good. Two members of our party are gluten free, and our server was very kind as we had him running around getting us more information on how the food was prepared, as well as all the other requests we had."

  • "A rundown restaurant with adequate food. It's convenient to time square but doesn't command the price they charge."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Beware of a restaurant that does not post prices--even on their website! Diner style food with fancy restaurant prices. So noisy you couldn't talk to the people at your own table. The food was good--but not worth the price!"

  • "It was our first visit in an American Diner. The service was excellent and very fast. The food was fantastic. I had a Cheeseburger with Pastrami. Very delicious!"

  • "I was very disappointed with The Brooklyn Diner. It was expensive and the food was not very good. I ordered the "Perfect Plate" with a roasted chicken breast. It was a salad with hummus and pita with chicken for $22.95. The chicken was so overcooked and dried out that I had to dunk it in the hummus to eat it. My daughter ordered the Turkey Reuben which she said was not very good and it was $27.95. I won't go back."

  • "The Cuban chicken was delicious and perfectly cooked. The Diner's famous chicken pot pie lived up to its reputation. We loved the look of the place with miles of tile and stainless steel. Server Adam was friendly, informative, and attentive. We'll be back when we return to the city."

  • "We enjoyed a terrific family dinner before seeing a Broadway show. When one of our party ran late for our reservation, we didn't feel rushed by the staff, and we made the show with plenty of time. Loved the decor and the Chicken Pot Pie!"

  • "Chinese chicken salad is great. Grilled salmon was good but very small. Quinoa was not good but the manager was terrific and comped us dessert."

  • "After waiting 40 minutes for our meals, our server (only 4th day on the job) came to tell us that she forgot to put in our order. The management stepped in and rushed through our order but the quality of the meal did not suffer. It was one of the BEST meals we had in NYC! At the end of the meal, mgt. came to apologize again and offered some desserts. They even took care of our bill. We would easily return to the Diner next time we're in NYC and would heartily recommend it to anyone heading into the city."

  • "This restaurant, diner.... did not open until 8am. Also to spend $50 for breakfast for 2 people was a bit extreme for what we got, which were omelets. Service was very good, but we truly didn't get enough for our money. I know NY is expensive, but for breakfast I was expecting more for the dollar and for them to be open earlier than 8."

  • "Food was great, service was very attentive and friendly! Maitre'd overheard me wishing my niece a happy birthday, and presented her with a complimentary dessert, complete with candle!"

  • "We went last Saturday morning for brunch. It was just delicous! I had the cinnamon and raisin french toast. Best I have had in a very long time!"

  • "We dined here prior to an 8:00 show. The restaurant was convenient to the theater, and easily accommodated our party. The food was excellent as was the service. It was worth it just for this, but the prices were well under the expected Times Square amounts."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "My friend and I were greeted and seated promptly. Our server was prompt with supplying our beverages. When ordering, we chose an appetizer in addition to our entrees. After a more than reasonable wait, we asked our server about our appetizer. When he returned, he had our entire order. Needless to say, the appetizer wound up being wasted. (We probably should have had him just take it back.) Our entrees were fine."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "The food here was very tasty and the portions are very large. Service was great and fast. We told them we have show tickets and they made sure we were in and out so we would not be late. Our server was friendly. We had made a reservation and our table was ready when we arrived."

  • "My wife & I had a really good experience some years back at the Brooklyn Diner on 57th so decided to get lunch @ 43rd St location prior to theatre matinee. We arrived around noon and we're shown to our table in the corner of restaurant - good location! Waiter was good, polite, prompt. Since they had an egg dish on menu, we asked if they would make omelets. waiter checked & said they would make eggs, but offered no menu or choices. I just ordered the scrambled eggs with salmon listed & my wife had Chinese chicken salad. Salad was large and tasty but only had 4 small slices of chicken. Eggs were dry and bagel not toasted. Food just average, but service good!"
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "We enjoyed our lunch at this fine establishment. We did not enjoy getting the bill. We understood that we were paying for location (Times Square). However, the location premium was about 50% over value. A hot dog in a blanket for $14? Really?? A Cobb salad in the $23 range. And the list goes on and on. The food is very good and the servers are fine. This is a perfect example of supply and demand. The supply of tourists is endless so the seats will stay filled. Enjoy your meal but get to an ATM before you dine."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We had a nice lunch before theater. Service good, food ditto, a little pricey for a diner but it's NY it's expected. We would recommend it. They have breakfast menu til 11:15 a.m. Then a lunch menu"

  • "Excellent recommendation from a friend would recommend"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We have eaten at both Brooklyn Diners many, many times and find their "comfort-food plus" menu and ambiance to be the perfect pre-theater or pre-concert dining experience. This visit we were pleasantly surprised to find an old friend, maitre d' Jose (formerly of Cafe 123) greeting us warmly at the door and making sure we got top-notch attention. The food was fresh, well-prepared, and delicious as usual. The evening crowd is usually touristy and this Friday was no exception but these NYers are happy to eat someplace where the food is consistently good, the wait-staff respects curtain-times, and the atmosphere is anything but stuffy."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Think kicked up diner food and add $10 to each entree. The food was good. Not exceptional but good. The portions were extremely large. They could cut the size and drop the prices and this would be a great place."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Party of 7 for dinner before theater including 3 children. Burgers, pigs in a blanket, steak all good. Chicken pot pie is the BEST! Our server was wonderful - attentive, friendly."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Our time there was too short, due to arriving 25 minutes late for a pre-theater dinner. We still got our table and our waiter was very friendly and efficient. In fact, I had chosen this place because I had very good memories from eating at the other branch of the Brooklyn diner 6 years ago. It didn't disappoint, we had excellent burgers. Hoping to come back for brunch too!"

  • "This is a Times Square tourist eatery with an upscale "diner" menu. $11 oatmeal and $19 omelettes. While I'm willing to pay those prices and take business clients there, I would expect snappier service. The coffee refills kept coming regularly, but there was a lag in clearing the dishes and bringing/collecting the check after we were done eating. Other than that, everything was OK but short of outstanding. I went there for a business breakfast, and will probably try it again for lunch."

  • "Recommended by our daughter. My husband and I needed a place to meet and lunch with my nephew who was visiting from Houston and staying in New Jersey. We enjoyed our lunches and sat for quite awhile. Our nephew is a cancer survivor and eats very slowly. The waiter was wonderful. He was patient and efficient. We were never rushed but always treated respectfully. The ambiance was lovely. The restaurant is clean and comfortable. The proximity to Broadway and the availability of parking at Meyer's garage made the destination excellent."

  • "I have eaten here several times and am not sure if they have raised their prices but for a midtown diner, which is all this is, dinner was expensive. Not sure that I will be going back any time soon."
