Welcoming restaurant. I had been there previously and was looking forward to having a veggie hot dog but they no longer have it. There are limited vegetarian options.

The noodle kuegel is delicious.

My Coke was $4.50 and I was never given a refill even though I ran out a third of the way through my meal. The server was not attentive at all after taking our order. The French fries were not crispy at all. The burger was average. I will NEVER waste my time eating there again.

Your average diner in the middle of Times Square. Place was packed but service was good. Got the chicken Alfredo which was average, chicken pot pie was delicious! Would recommend for a cheap, fast meal in NYC!

It was our daughter's 12th birthday and the staff couldn't have been more solicitous of her in making her morning special. What a way to start the day...being sung to, having everyone join in and a huge piece of chocolate cake to top it off. Thank you!!!!

What time do you mean?! Absolutely amazing as per usual! Found this gem of a Diner in 2011, ensure we come back every time we visit New York. Been twice in this tri0 and will make sure we come back again before we leave on Friday. Fabulous service, fantastic food, what more can you ask for?!

 (Washington DC)·Dined on December 3, 2017

The husband and I were in the city to see The Lion King - a special request and treat for him for his birthday. We reserved a table and it was waiting for us - we were able to be seated 45 minutes beforehand (we arrived earlier than expected). Husband had the amazing chicken pot pie, and I had the blackened Salmon burger. All was tasty - but my fries were a bit old - though warm when presented.

The price was on the high side, which is to be expected in that locale. The host and server were great. I recommend Brooklyn Dinner.

The food was quite good but the portions were preposterous for children. There really should be a children's menu as there is a lot of waste and the meals are quite expensive. It would have been helpful if the wait staff shared information regarding portion sizes so we could have considered sharing entrees among the 7 children in our party. The hostess was wonderful when making our reservation and we were accommodated as a large party without any problem. Our waitress Genevieve offered excellent service and handled the large party with ease and accuracy. This is a nice spot for pre matinee lunch with children as long as you ask questions about the selections when making your order.

 (New Orleans)·Dined on December 2, 2017

Love Brooklyn Diner, especially this one on 43rd St. Its a real New York City, authentic, noisy, and lovely place. Service Is always good, and you just never know who will walk in. The majority of the wait staff I have met through the years are working actors, learning their craft and working hard at a restaurant. If you tell them you have a theatre engagement, they will get you out in plenty of time to walk to your theatre and wait in line there! Really excellent food - and the desserts, the desserts. Just look at them. All I ask.

 (Washington DC)·Dined on December 1, 2017

Was as the 43rd street location. I try to stay away from Times Square area b/c too many tourist, but I had tickets to a show and I picked this place solely on it's proximity to the theatre. Wow, what a find. Seating is a bit tight in the front of the restaurant - but this is NYC after all - and I had a nice conversation with the couple seated next to us (likerightnexttous!). I didn't see the back section of the restaurant so I can't speak for how it is laid out. Great place for dinner/drinks before the show. Waiter (I'm sorry I don't remember his name) was very friendly and helped narrow down choice of entrée. Drinks were well made. I had steak frites, perfectly prepared with fries on the side, not under the steak. Arugula salad was very tasty. My friend has the Cuban chicken, which she said was quite delicious. But warning, the Cuban chicken is a large entrée. Price is typical for Times Square area, but worth it. I will definitely return.

 (New York Area)·Dined on November 29, 2017

The food and the service were outstanding! Our food was delivered quickly and hot. The server checked back several time to make sure we had everything we needed. One of the best cheeseburgers I have had in NYC. Unfortunately, it is a bit pricey, especially the desserts. The Ice cream floats were a whopping $10.50 and an egg cream was $7.50 (yes, that's chocolate syrup and seltzer). However, the burgers were outstanding and an average price in NYC, and I don't mind paying for a good burger. Overall, highly recommended, just be prepared to pay for it.

Food nothing out of the ordinary, server indifferent, no offer of coffee or dessert.
Being Thanksgiving the restaurant was crowded, too many people crammed in to too small a space, struggled to vacate table without other diners having to move. Too many bookings taken.

It was decent. Our server was amazing, Sarah, she was top notch. The food was ok. We went for breakfast. Pancakes were standard pancakes, fairly large portions, the smoked salmon eggs Benedict was not very flavorful and average. The problem was, I felt, even for times square, the prices were too high. So, for 4 pancakes, 1 eggs/salmon bene, 2 oj's, milk, sausage side and coffees, we saw a bill around $160. That's a tough pill to swallow. I probably won't go back for breakfast, but maybe lunch or dinner I'll have a better experience.

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.
