    Every time we visit New York we have to dine at this restaurant. All the food is amazing, especially the sandwiches and the Reuben. Incredible desserts too! Making a reservation is a must as it is always busy.

    I ordered the avocado toast with lobster, and although the avocado toast was good, the lobster was a bit rubbery and bland. The vanilla drink I ordered was very good and pancake was good, but it didn’t come with butter and only one small jar of syrup. My husband ordered they make your own omelette and he said it was quite good.it was noisy in there as it was morning, but we enjoyed the fast pace and ambience

    The place is a little bit chaotic, because so many people are comming in at the same time, but the guys at the entrance handle it pretty good. And of course the reason for this is because the food is always so good, so it’s totally worth it. We always come here when we are visiting in New York City. And will highly recommend it!

    A bit more 'upscale' than the usual diner, but with all the expected diner fare. Loved the burger, although my partner was confused by the sauerkraut on the side with his Reuben instead on actually on the sandwich. A reservation is a must on Carnegie Hall concert nights! We were seated quickly, and service was friendly and acceptable considering the crowd. Was also impressed that the manager stopped at each table to thank diners for coming - have almost never seen that before anywhere. We will be back.

    Short wait although there was a line to be seated. Very organized in every way. The wait staff was attentive without making me feel I was inconveniencing them for not being ready to order. We loved the burger. I look forward to trying other offerings. The crowded nature of the cafe added to the atmosphere rather than detracting.

    This was the first NYC diner experience for most of our party, and it did not disappoint. The ambience was lively and fun, our server was excellent, and the food was plentiful and delicious. We would highly recommend the Carnegie Diner & Cafe as a great option for families (with teenagers) and those wanting a fantastic diner experience.

    Very large portions and the food is very good. I had the nutella pancake stack and it didn’t disappoint. It was so good we went back a second time and I had the avocado toast. It looked average but was the best avo toast I’ve ever had. We tried another diner in town (Brooklyn Diner) and that’s where Carnegie really stood out as the best. Highly recommend.

    The food was excellent. Wide variety of options from healthy to decadent. My 11-year-old son, who is a vegetarian found lots of options. The weight staff and host were fast, friendly, and efficient. The ambience was quintessential New York. The host, whose name, I forget, was very friendly, and always wanted to make sure that we were satisfied and left with a smile. Highly recommend.

    There’s no way around it on a weekend…the Carnegie Diner is gonna be crowded and you will feel rushed to finish so they can turn the tables. It’s reasonable, for the portions and selections — there’s something for everyone. In this case, we had salads (BBQ Chicken & the Mediterranean Salad w/ salmon), along with speciality coffees…but by the coffee, we felt we could not enjoy it and had to leave. Service is good and, while I had to wait until the entire party was there, I was seated promptly and appreciated having a reservation…you’ll need it!

    This was a happening place! We went for Sunday breakfast. Large menu selections & big portions. Server was great! She kindly let us know when my teens asked for more syrup that additional small maple bottles would be charged for but “regular” syrup was free. Knocked off one star for feeling rushed by hosts who came by twice once our meal was finished asking if everything was ok. (Wanting us to get on our way so they could seat a new party) Also be aware you may sit very, very close to strangers - basically at same table.

    Decent diner, but definitely high volume. They try to move folks in and out efficiently. We didn't feel rushed, but didn't feel at ease to hang around a long time and that's okay. You want a great diner style brunch or lunch then get to sightseeing - Carnegie is a great bet.

    Even though we had a reservation, it seemed that the staff was in a hurry to get us served and out. We enjoyed our dinner, but we also wanted to take in the atmosphere as it was our first time eating there and would like to decide if we should go back in the future.
