    My 15-bite hot dog was fabulous. My friend, celebrating his birthday, greatly enjoyed his Steak Frites. Both of the women in our party enjoyed their omelets. For dessert, the chocolate mousse with whipped cream was delightful. All in all, an excellent meal. Service was uneven, slow at times but prompt most of the time.

    I made a mistake when making the reservation, and made it for the wrong location. The hostess honored it anyway and was so accommodating and nice about it. Great breakfast. Pricey, but everything in NYC is expensive. Fun atmosphere.

    Die Preise in NYC sind höher, als in vergleichbaren Locations. Das sollte nicht das Kriterium sein, wenngleich es natürlich stört, für 2 Burger, 2 Bier und 2 Wasser über 80USD zu zahlen. Was mich aber sehr stört, sind die bereits vorgeschlagenen Trinkgelder auf dem Kassenbon (gestaffelt in 20%, 22% oder 24%) und das Gleiche dann nochmals auf dem Kartenlesegerät, um einem die Quantifizierung des „Tips“ zu erleichtern. Der wirklich sehr freundliche Kellner hat sofort erklärt, da ich mein Trinkgeld in bar gegeben habe, dass es gar kein Problem ist, kein automatisiertes Trinkgeld zu geben. Der Service ist wirklich freundlich, aber das Trinkgeld sollte man tatsächlich der Freiwilligkeit überlassen.

    Food was good but portions were small. The sauce with the fried chicken was delicious and my pastrami sandwich was very lean and tasty. The service was top notch. We received a very welcoming greeting as we arrived and our server was attentive and engaging throughout. Reliable option in midtown.

    The food was good but we spent over $110 on 3 pretty basic meals - a hot dog, scrambled eggs and a pastrami sandwich. No alcohol or dessert. And the menu wasn’t a diner menu. We expected diner food, a beyond three offerings, it was an eclectic and limited mix of different types of food.

    We chose Brooklyn Diner because it's close to Carnegie Hall and we were going to a performance. All the wait staff and front door greeters couldn't have been nicer. And it's a fun atmosphere. But the food was lukewarm--including soup--and neither especially good nor bad. That would be okay if it were a dive deli with bargain prices, but the prices are definitely upscale.

    I ordered “The Omelette” which arrived lukewarm and very over cooked. My friend ordered scrambled eggs and bacon and her eggs were over cooked and dry as well. We had to ask for butter for our toast and bagel. A diner should know how to cook eggs. So for two orders of eggs and a soda, our bill was $70+ (including tip). I wouldn’t complain about the price quite as much if the food was great. It was a disappointment.

    Today’s visit was a disappointment. 5:45 written reservation said one of us would be ordering chicken pot pie. Told it was sold out at 6 pm. Rose lemonade also unavailable. Pastrami sandwich on rye bread with excellent mustard was a very good alternate choice. Spouse liked the Burrata Bowl. Huge slice of Blackout Cake with vanilla ice cream was happily shared and liked.

    Their Eggplant Parm was rubbery and stodgy, but Brooklyn Diner is such a comfortable place to meet before a concert that overall it is the place to go in my opinion. The salad was good and their desserts are wonderfully decadent. I find the prices rather high but reasonable considering how close they are to Carnegie Hall.
