The Brooklyn Diner Times Square Ratings and Reviews
We ate at the Brooklyn Diner pre-theater. The restaurant is comfortable and very upscale for a "diner". The comfort food is well-prepared and in generous portions. Service was a little slow at times because the waiters cover a lot of tables and do everything. This restaurant is a lot quieter than many others in Times Square, but it is also a bit pricier.
The matzoh ball soup may be the best in New York. And the chicken pot pie is also amazing. But the ambience of the 43rd Street location is lacking. (The 57th Street location has more charm.) The booths along the back wall are isolated -- try finding a waiter -- and so deep that the servers have to keep asking people at the table to pass things. But the real problem is that the food is uneven (the burgers were barely passable) and the service, to put it mildly, random. Things came or didn't come, or came in the wrong order, or were delivered to the wrong table (there is no coordination between waiters and runners) and some hot food was freezing cold by the time it arrived, which ruined the meal. Too bad.
Went for breakfast at 11am. Last meal in the city before heading home on Saturday. Had a booth off the kitchen which was perfect. While you can easily share the pancakes or French toast, we did not! Side orders of bacon could’ve easily shared one side. Coffee was great. Fresh squeezed OJ delicious. Server was professional and friendly, exactly what you want. Terrific breakfast held us until the next meal - 7 hours later! We’ve eaten at BD at both locations, and both are worth returning to. Until next time...
An upscale diner. We actually are here twice in one day—for breakfast and post-theatre. Lots of healthy options (eg—whole wheat blueberry pancakes, fabulous black bean veggie burger, side of broccolini) and several vegetarian options. Busy place with attentive service. Pricy for a diner, but you are getting way-better-than-diner food.
Went to the Diner based on recommendations and couldn't be happier that we did. It was a busy night but we were seated on time for our reservation. Our server was kind and patient as we had a look through the menu. He came back after a couple of minutes as we had asked and wasn't pushy at all! Food came out quickly and was delicious! My wife and I had burgers which were exceptional! The strawberry cheesecake was a great shared desert too! Would highly recommend for a pre/post Broadway venue!
The Brooklyn Diner was very disappointing for breakfast. I understand that NYC is expensive, but I expect a much more quality breakfast for the prices charged. We had pancakes, eggs, raisin & pecan French toast and an omelette. Everything was mediocre. Our bill for six people was over $150!!
We chose this for pre-theater dining because of its location and the availability of a wide variety of food. We had an excellent waiter who was friendly and courteous. The food was very good - kind of upscale diner fare. I had chicken soup and tabouleh. My friend had the Mediterranean salad with chicken, which she enjoyed.
We wanted to go eat somewhere quintessentially New York since it was our last day there. It was also Christmas and we wanted to have a good meal and Brooklyn Diner was not only open on Christmas, it was taking reservations! I had the hot pastrami which was pretty good, though not as memorable as some of the other places in New York that serve nice pastrami. Daughter had the chicken parm which was huge!! Hubby had the chicken pot pie which was equally huge and impressive.
We ate at the Times Square restaurant and it was mobbed. We had an Open Table reservation and we were seated at the time we asked for. Don’t try to get a table unless you have a reservation. There is always a line to get it. This is an expensive Diner......very expensive, but the food was great.
The waiter, Danny, made it so special. We were celebrating a birthday and he made sure he paid us special attention to detail. He really cared. I had the Pollo Cubano which was excellent and my friend had the Chicken Pot Pie. That was enormous. We got very special treatment and we thank him tremendously.
