  • Delicious food, too noisy for me

    I thoroughly enjoyed the food that I had (kale salad, salmon), but found it hard to hear my friends. The room is beautifully decorated with contemporary art, but nothing to absorb sound.

    We were seated upstairs which was nice...less noisy..We ordered a bottle of wine which the restaurant did not have in stock. Their loss because then we just ordered 2 glasses of wine and the waiter never asked if we would like another. Our appetizers came our extremely quickly and the meal followed just as quick. We were finished with our apps and entree in 45 minutes. Then they immediately brought over the dessert menus..I asked for a few minute to relax but i guess the waiter never heard me say it. All in all the food was very good and so was the dessert, but the service was a little lacking as we had to ask for water refills as well.

    I went on Sunday night to Diane's for the first time during restaurant week. The restaurant is warm and friendly, but it did feel crowded and noisy. I thought the chopped salad, chicken under a brick and 3 berry pie were all excellent choices for me and would recommend them. I hope to go back on a quieter evening.

    I took my wife here for her birthday on Saturday evening. We were promptly seated. I asked for a table upstairs as the lower level was a bit too loud for a nice dinner for two. Food was very good! We split the vegetable tasting appetizers. My wife had the spaghetti bolognese and I had the special short ribs. Delicious all around! My wife's pasta tasted like fresh noodles were used and the short ribs, which were served on a base of mashed potatoes with carrot slivers, was wonderful. Pull apart with a fork meat, favored nicely. For dessert we shared the brownie and the three berry pie. My wife loved both and I agree the brownie was tasty but the pie was good but not awesome but I'm a bit of a pie snob. All in all a really good evening!

    Whether you're local or you have to travel to Roslyn, it's worth it to eat at Diane's. Whatever you're in the mood for from steak to fish to pasta to chicken--you can have it, and you can have it delicious! Portions are generous, prices are fair, and it's all served by a professional waitstaff in a comfortable atmosphere.

    the service was absolutely awful. the yellow fin tuna was grilled like a loaf of bread. the chicken parmesian was deeply fried and smothered with tomato sauce. the pasta was barely warm and at no time did the waiter ask if we would like some grated cheese. the diver scallops were salty. must complement the bottled flat water. will never go back.

    We haven't been here for a while, and I am glad we went back- the food was delicious and the service was great! The only thing needing improvement was the bar... we had a cocktail prior to sitting down- my cosmo was very average..and my friend had vodka, cranberry and a splash of soda- she couldn't even drink it..(canned cranberry? old seltzer on tap?) not sure why...bartender didn't seem to care less-- too bad.

    Food was delicious and waitress was lovely. The only complaint was that in our party of 6 not all of our appetizers nor entrees were brought out at the same time. They should have figured out a way to utilize an extra set of hands to make sure everyone in our party was served at the same time so some of us did not have to sit and wait.

    Owned by the head chef and the pastry chef, Diane's has a loyal following, yet still attracts new fans weekly. There's something for everyone on the menu, and although it doesn't change much, there's enough variety that regulars never tire of it, and nubies can't help but be impressed.

    We all really loved what we ate and our waiter Dave was very nice. It was quite expensive for the kind of place it is. For four people the bill was $265 and this was BEFORE the tip (each had A drink, an appetizer, a main dish, 1 coffee, 1 cappaccino and shared ONE dessert). Be careful 4 little pieces of biscotti is $10.

    This place has been around for a long time and Diane should either close it or put some life back into it. The menu is drab, although the food is reasonably well prepared, the place is tired and the service is terrible. This will be my last visit unless something changes.
