Great! Glad I made a reservation as it was pretty busy (Sunday at 12:15pm). The Chicken Pot Pie was HUGE (shared between two people) and absolutely delicious. A little pricey for a "diner," but high quality and convenient for a matinee show.

We were seated promptly, placed our order and then waited for well over an hour to be served. We had to run to the theater because of this delay. No explanation from anyone about the delay. Instead of being relaxed we were all on edge. Not a good experience.

Frankfurter and French fries with chili was $21.95 and not good and not eaten. Chicken pot pie was delicious. Mixed bag for our party of four but it was a special evening after the play so not to be repeated.

Very happy and impressed that they recognized my note that this was a special occasion and had a bottle of bubbly waiting for us and congratulatory comments for my Father on his Birthday and marathon achievement. Thank you so much to the staff and especially our waiter Joel for being so attentive and entertaining!!😊😊😊

Great pre-theater spot!
Welcoming host at the door- friendly and attentive wait staff.
Great comfort food diner menu including massive chicken pot pie, hot dogs in a blanket, pastrami sandwiches and classic chicken soup!
Nice cocktails, beers on tap and delectable shakes!
Desserts large enough to easily share including coconut cake!

Brooklyn Diner is a good breakfast place right in the heart of Times Square. It's pricey because it's location but you can be in and out with a tasty omelette any day of the week. Can be crowded.

Second time at Brooklyn Diner. Good food. Ample portions. Great waiters. Right across the street from most Broadway theaters, so great for pro matinee lunch or dinner before the show.

Brooklyn Diner is a retro diner, with all sorts of comfort food. I had the Kale salad with anchovies and chicken paillard (sp?), which was delicious. They gave me about 8 oz of chicken which was a lot and I came out of there stuffed. Just a cool place to go for lunch.

I was really disappointed in the Brooklyn Diner. I had the famous chicken soup and I do not know why it's considered famous. The vegetables in it seemed undercooked and there were not many noodles in it at all. It was mostly broth. Someone in our party ordered the chicken pot pie and had a hard time eating it because it was so thick. Two others in our party ordered cheeseburgers which were good, but overall while the portions are very large, the equally large amount of the bill did not seem worth it for the quality of food we received. I would not go here again.

Outstanding location for pre-matinee lunch in Theater District but we'd love to try it for early dinner the next time we have a show in the evening. My wife and I often come up to NY from DC by train, see a show in the afternoon and then go back to DC. This will become our number 1 place for a lunch prior to the theater. We didn't order it but we saw the chicken pot pie on another table and we're ready for next visit.

If planning on going, make sure to leave enough time. We had a 12:30 reservation in order to make a 2:00 show. We ordered two sandwiches and it took over 45 minutes for them to come out. Not what I would expect at a diner type restaurant. The food was good but didn't really have much time for anything other than the sandwich.

I've been to the original location of the Brooklyn Diner multiple times and have loved it; we went to the Times Square outpost for convenience's sake this time. I liked this one quite a lot too -- a little more cozy, and the wait staff were very nice and accommodating as our party grew. No complaints, though the bathroom really could use some A/C -- it was so much hotter than the restaurant!
