Food overall was just OK. Service was subpar. They kept coming around and tried to take away our food and clear the table. It seemed like they were trying to rush us to leave (we didn't even sit there for an hour yet). There was no line up at the door so that was weird.
Service was great! They gave us our own room and we were able to play our own music! Would definitely go again :)
Absolutely amazing! Waiter was such a great, fun person too
The kale cashew bowl is AMAZING!!
Everyone there is so friendly!! Celebrated my friend’s birthday. It was the best!
Amazing service and food
We were seated for 20 minutes with no service.
I've been here a few times and somehow the experience got worse. The seats have obvious wear and tear, and the service is very imbalanced.
Great beautiful space with delicious food. Highly recommend. Looks new, I hope it takes off!
The food was better than we expected but our waitress left A LOT to be desired.
Expecting a lot more here, all you get is overpriced eggs.
This place is clean, modern and quite. We tried the braised short rib and a pasta, very delicious. The short rib was so tender and full of flavor.
The staff was very friendly, the service was top-notch and the ambiance was great.
Nice place, friendly waiter, ordered a bloody Mary but was a bit strong for my taste. Meal was very good, would come back again.
Great ambiance, great food, enjoyed the brunch menu especially the salads! Would definitely go back!
First time was a charm. Delicious birthday lunch for a friend, topped off with soft, vanilla chocolate swirl ice cream.
We went for Restaurant Week, so the menu was limited. However, the appetizer and entree were DELICIOUS! The dessert was a little lacking. Overall the experience was delightful and one I am looking forward to repeating!
Great dinner, rough service.
We had been for brunch, which was excellent and met the owners who are lovely. Decided to go for Restaurant Week and have a nice “date” dinner. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously. The wait staff were a little new and a bit scattered, and overall did a good job. Would highly recommend that everyone find their way there for any meal!
I enjoyed the food. I had the curry pumpkin soup, branzino, and chocolate dessert.
Our first time in this restaurant and we loved everything about it. The food portions are not massive - great for people who struggle with American portions. Food was very tasty.
Ate for dinner with my girlfriend on a Tuesday night. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. We had the scallops appetizer, and the shrimp entree and the chicken entree. Everything was well prepared, flavorful, and beautifully presented. Our server told us that they only recently got their liquor license, and dinner service is new as well.
our water arrived in steaming hot glasses.. hot to the touch even, so our water was very very warm, like tea without the tea bag. and my red wine came ice cold.
Best breakfast sandwich ever.
Stunning diner. Great food. Fantastic building. Just cool. V good coffee and Matcha lattes too
So much fun. Food was very good. Can’t wait to go back!
We were a group of five people (me and my spouse were hosting my friend and her family that was here visiting) and you all know how important tourists limited time is and how crucial it is for them to experience the best of the city. I took them to this place which myself I fancy since before but this time we all got the food before the drinks (read an hour). When I kindly inform them that It rarely happens and asked when we are going to get our drinks the waiter responded: “we dont have a bartender”. So when did that become my problem? A restaurant should work as a team and seriously, none of us ordered cocktails or complicated drinks, it was simply beer and wine which honestly takes a minute or two to organize, instead of delivering us the drinks we were handed that lame excuse which in my opinion even made it worse. I am glad that the food quality and taste was really good after the bad service we just had experienced at the end I think they saved our visit by offering the drinks on the house. And also note that when we re ordered the wine they poured it up in the same glas. Do I have to say anymore? I would seriously only recommend going here if that waiter got fired or if you want really good takeaway!
I found out about this diner on Open Table (I.E., no one I know had been there, and we were looking for a breakfast place). The coffee is outstanding. The food is also excellent-the best corned beef hash I have ever had-fingering potatoes, , real chunks of great corned beef. My only "complaint" is it is pricey-very. But the ambience, and food was great.
We came here to celebrate announcing our engagement on Friday night. Everyone said this place was great and it was the complete opposite for us.
The server was horrible. He was so slow to take our orders, champagne came twenty minutes after we ordered it, and when we received our food, it was all cold. The restaurant was packed and it seemed like he was the only one serving, hosting, bussing tables etc. When we complained about the chicken, the server just kind of gave us a blank stare and took it back to the kitchen and the chef just took one piece of it, reheated it (probably in a microwave) and brought it back to us!! WTF! Never had we ever had that kind of service before. Then on top of that, they still charged us for it too.
The asparagus appetizer for 17 was literally 4 pieces of asparagus on a plate with some cheese. I had the pasta since I don't eat meat.
We had two bottles of champagne and a huge bill and headache. Won't be back here.
The server could have been a little more attentive.
I found this diner on a list of great coffee places while trying to find a spot in in lower Manhattan that had both good coffee (bottomless coffee was a bonus!) and a great brunch menu for a Sunday get-together between friends and Nickel & Diner did not disappoint! The food and coffee were great, the staff were welcoming and very accommodating, and the atmosphere was a nice modernized retro diner feel. We loved it and we’ve already discussed making this a regular destination for brunch!
Wow. One of the best meals in NYC, bar none.
The service was unfocused, unfriendly, uninterested, brought the wrong order, and rolled her eyes at requests such as "could we please have sugar with the coffee and tea".
Very slow service - almost 20 minute wait for hot water! But good food!
Great space with excellent ambience; interesting menu for brunch, free ingredients and good service. Would go back!
Went there for thanksgiving dinner. Very bad experience overall. Had to wait almost 2 hours for my main course. Music very loud and very slow service. Food was ok but expensive for the price.
Wow. A great restaurant disguised as a diner!!
Terrific food, fine location.
I reserved table for 8 am. Restaurant opened at 9. Waited for an hour. Open table—restaurant data transfer sucks
Fabulous food and lots of gluten free options. Had several small plates and the fried chicken, lobster risotto, and pumpkin soup were all stand out favorites that are worth trying. I highly recommend this place for a good meal.
