Food was very good and the shakes were excellent. We arrived earlier than our reservation but were seated immediately. Service was good and fast.
The food was very good and our waiter was just as pleasant and as nice
as he could be.
I always liked the Brooklyn diner. The only issue I had was the tables were so close together with the other patrons I felt as if we were all eating together. I guess I’ve always eaten in a booth and never noticed the tables. For now on I will request a booth. Otherwise it was fine
I was impressed with the service. We were celebrating and the host brought us 2 champagne flutes. So kind and unexpected. We were also there a long time, and never felt rushed or pressured. Very nice experience.
ALTHOUGH JUST LUNCH IT WAS MOST ENJOYABLE. OUR SERVER, GENIVIEVE, WAS ENTERTAINING AND DELIGHTFUL. THE COBB SALAD WE BOTH HAD WAS THE BEST WE CAN REMEMBER HAVING ANYWHERE. EVEN THE STAFF WHO CLEARED THE TABLES WERE FRIENDLY AND ENGAGING. THIS WAS OUR SECOND VISIT TO THE BROKLYN DINER HAVING BEEN THERE LAST YEAR DURING OUR BIG APPLE VISIT WHICH WE TRY TO DO TWICE A YEAR FROM BERMUDA.
We were seated before and attended to after the table next to us. Then I ordered a pastrami sandwich and 15 minutes later was told that they were out of pastrami. Then I ordered a burger medium rare and it was delivered well done. By the time I got my burger (undercooked this time), my daughter had finished her meal. I also was given no silverware and it took asking three times to get ketchup. They did comp the burger without my asking, which I think was the right thing to do, but what was supposed to be a quick little dinner at 4:45 (off hours to beat) took 90 minutes. Perhaps I had a uniquely bad experience, but I can't say I'd be rushing back.
Food was good. Service was a little slow. It was 30 minutes before water glasses were refilled.
Good food (salads, reuben), good shakes. Nice ambiance, fun place.
I met a friend in from Los Angeles, and picked this spot due to its location near her hotel. Very enjoyable experience for Sunday breakfast. Am glad I made reservations via Open Table because people who were arriving as walk-ins when I arrived had a 45-minute wait.
Greasy hot dog, wouldn’t make substitutions on the menu. Over priced for the quality
Dissapointing. High prices with average at best food.
Chose this restaurant because of the proximity to our theater on a Friday night and wanted to make sure we had a pre-theater reservation. Almost walked out when first arrived, due to the OVERWHELMING smell of chemical/cleaner.
The menu is a little confusing...seems like they aren't quite sure what they're trying to be. The matzo ball soup was good, as was the pastrami on rye. Couldn't find a simple salad on the menu for a picky eater in our party. Took FOR-EVER to get cocktails. Even for New York, the prices were high, especially for the portion and quality of the food.
I would NOT recommend this restaurant. I'm sure there are much better options nearby.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The waitress was lovely. Food was great. Service was fast and efficient. 2 thumbs up !!!
Great diner experience in Manhattan! This is the food your grandmother would have cooked if she were Jewish! Great ambience, and fantastic service made it even better! I had the house cured pastrami sandwich as the main entree. I was fortunate, as the kitchen still had it to order on a Friday evening (it’s only offered until they run out). Thick-sliced (I prefer it a little thinner sliced), full of flavor, extremely tender and just enough fat to make it what it should be.
I also had the chicken and noodle soup as a starter. Tender chicken shredded, swimming in a broth that was tasty enough to be its own offering, sans the goodies. But it was definitely one of the best I have had in many years, anywhere.
Service was impeccable and very attentive. This place is now a go-to for future visits to NYC.
Fantastic pastrami reuben and chicken pot pie. Nice dinner before a show. It took a little while for the check, and we had to flag someone down, but we had time so it wasn’t a big deal for us.
Right place, right time , right choices of food. Friendly staff too
I’ve been here several times and have never had a bad experience! Noodle Kugel is amazing! In fact we got some “to go”!! Will definitely go again!
They had a big variety on the menu. The Pollo Cubano was great. I would visit again if we were in the area.
Been here many times, and love it every time! Very pleasant and efficient staff, and delicious food!
Whenever I visit NYC, The Brooklyn Diner always on my itinerary and it never disappoints.
A fantastic location. You are greeted professionally and the food is incredible. It is very highly recommended
Was wonderful to eat then get to the theater. I was disappointed in the egg cream . I was hoping got an old fashioned egg cream and didn’t get it.
Pastrami hash and eggs were really good as were the corn polenta fries with the marinara sauce.
Very overpriced and not worth the money. I could not believe how expensive our bill was. The food is just okay.
Amazing food. LOVED our server Genevieve. Another server came over and tried to rush us into ordering because they were ending brunch, which I didn’t love. But everything else was great!!!
Very good noodle kugel.
Yum and fun! Great food abd great service with a smile. Be sure to make a reservation!
Great option off Times Square. Love the diner and atmosphere. We always stop in when we visit NYC and in the area. All our breakfast order food was very good and service was very attentive.
Les prix sont exhorbitants pour les plats typiquement américains. Le service est bien et l’emplacement idéal mais ne qualifie pas les prix proposés.
Order the chicken pot pie- best ever!
One of the better diners I've been to. Salad was very fresh! Blackened salmon burger had good flavor but I would have
preferred it to be made with a whole piece of salmon vs the can type.
I love this place. Chicken pot pie just die for as is the veggie burger. We’ve always come here when we go to theater. The matre’d is so accommodating
The Chicken pot pie was excellent. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. We were not rushed. A+ for cleanliness.
Though a little slow on service, we did enjoy our waitress and our breakfasts. Love the polenta, a nice change from home fries. The New Yorker breakfast seems to be a pretty good deal if you are going to be ordering coffee and juice anyway. The fresh squeezed orange juice is a nice touch.
Every time we come to NYC, we go here. Every single time. This chicken pot pie is amazing but I got the Cuban chicken this time. Hubby got the all beef frank which was as long as a forearm. He said it was incredible. We always get right in, food comes quickly. If we are in town for a show, we get food in a timely manner. Place is surprisingly spacious but still intimate. Great food. Try it.
Service was aite slow but the food was delicious! We had the tuna melt and the BLT, both really good and huge servings!
We ate both brunch and dinner here last week. The ambience was great, the food very good and the service excellent. For brunch I had smoked salmon with caramelised onions and scrambled eggs. The onions were rather too sloppy for my taste, but other than that it was good. My husband enjoyed Huevos Rancheros which he loved. For dinner I had blackened salmon, perfectly cooked with quinoa salad. The huge amount of hummus was a bit too much though! Portion sizes are so huge in the US.! There are no tv screens ( hooray!) waiters are smartly dressed and the service was excellent. An enjoyable experience - thank you!
Tables are very close together. Order came out wrong to start.
Have been here twice now and have loved it both times. A breakfast that sets you up for the whole day. Very friendly service and getting a table takes no time at all. Thoroughly recommend!!!
My husband and I found this gem a few years ago by accident. We loved the food and our cocktails were great too! Each time I love that the servers have such great personalities. We eat here every time we are in New York. Can’t beat the kuegel!!!
