    A very nice place to go for a pre-Carnegie Hall event. It will be our go-to on those occasions.

    Mother/daughter evening out after Stephen Colbert show. Delighted to try Carnegie hamburger special that uses fried Mac & cheese as the ‘bun’. Delicious! Waiter was attentive and able to use my Open Table reward $$’s. Worth a trip if in the neighborhood.

    Very noisy. Food was good. However, we were rushed out after only 1 hour. The waiters grab your plates due to the long wait lines. We won't be back for that reason. The owner/gatekeeper is quite unfriendly.

    Great breakfast food options at this dinner. We had the California omelette served w hash browns, salad and toast; an order of 3 large blueberry pancakes served w fresh blueberries, jam, whipped cream and real maple syrup. I can see why they are so busy. Great location cross corner from Carnegie hall.

    My sister and I were meeting cousins there that we hadn’t seen in 5 years. We only had a short time to catch up with them before the concert. They arrived after us and the manager was not able to find a way to seat our cousins with us, but assured us he would find them a separate table on the other side of the diner, as if that would serve our purpose. They left and waited for us across the street. We ate our food and went to join them across the street. I miss the Carnegie Deli.

    In the city with family for jazz competitions and needed table for 6 on a crowded holiday MLK Day, and we were seated 10 minutes early when we arrived, and there was no pressure in the crowded room when several in our party were late in arriving. Wonderful staff, friendly, courteous, attentive; excellent food in abundance and fantastic NYC experience. We were even able to squeeze on additional person at our table. Highly recommend!

    We were in NYC to see my granddaughter perform at Carnegie Hall, and we chose the Carnegie Diner for dinner. Made reservations so we knew we would have a place to go on a cold day, and after the dinner rush was over we were able to stay until it was time for the bus to pick us up. My son had a burger and key lime pie, I had a salad, and the food was great. And a lot of it! Highly recommend for a good meal on the go.

    We visited at a busy time due to a performance at Carnegie Hall. It was very busy and you could tell the staff were a little overwhelmed. BUT they still sat us fairly quickly (we had a reservation) and the food came in an impressive amount of time considering how busy it was. (15 min or so) Food was hot and delicious! Friendly staff. Would recommend and visit again!

    I’m not usually disappointed when I come here but this visit the food was awful. I ordered fish and chips, when I have had it before it is a nice fresh piece of fish, freshly cooked. This time is was literally two frozen pieces of cod cooked. Nothing fresh about it. The chips tasted like they were hours old. Worst meal I’ve ever had here and in NY as a whole.
