Food was good. Service a bit slow.
Food was really good and menu had variety but wasn't too large. We came here for a pre-show dinner (6pm for a nearby 8pm show) and the timing worked for us. Plan for at least 1.5 hours to order, eat, and pay even if you're just getting an entrée. It's better than cutting it close and getting to your show late! The server was somewhat attentive. We did get water refilled a couple times, but there was a couple times we were looking for him and we couldn't find him. Might have been that it was just so busy on a Saturday night in Times Square.
Service was good and location is great so we went back the next day for brunch. The second time around the quality was the same (food and service) so it's consistent from my perspective. The waitress was attentive when she was around, but we did need to hunt her down a couple times to order additional drinks and get the check.
All in all, would still go back again.
Very nice place and good food and can make a reservation
Not really a negative.but was a surprise how small-compact it was...service was good and meal was excellent. However, I probably would not return due to size and that is just my "thing". Will want to try the other one on 57th, as photo apts larger.
Absolutely Fantastic! Service = Outstanding, Food/Drink = Outstanding.
Great pancakes and I had gluten free bread with my eggs Benedict. It was delicious and the server was so kind to my special needs son. Family rest room made life easier.
I made a reservation on open table, and made a request for a booth. It was ready early! Thank you so much got a wonderful time.
It was our good fortune to stumble across the Brooklyn Diner on Saturday morning the day after our arrival in NYC. It is a VERY busy, typical New York diner. The food was VERY good and the service was excellent. We were pleased enough that we had breakfast there on each of our 3 mornings in the city. On two of those mornings we had Genevieve as our server. She was efficient and attentive and had an enjoyable personality to boot. The other day we had another server who was not quite as attentive. We will definitely make it a place we'll stop whenever we are in the city.
Great food and big portions! Very popular place right on broadway in Times Square as it was packed on Sunday when we were there at 10am. Service was also very good! Definitely on the pricey side for breakfast but to be expected in a tourist location. We would go again and I would recommend it.
Great service and good food.
great food and service. Not being from New York, everything is a bit pricey but the food here is very good. Second time to New York, Second time to the Diner. Consistently good
Great food, wonderful waiter and I forgot my cell phone on the table and it was at the front when I returned for it! Love going here. Always great!
Enjoyable New York food. This is a great place for a quick bite, snack, or a light meal. The noodle kugle is amazing.
Great breakfast menu and fantastic pancakes. Lots of ambient noise due to shape of the venue but good for a relaxed Sunday brunch. No pressure to get finished and get gone.
My new favorite breakfast place in Times Square!! Loved it!!
Great for quick bite before theater. Service was excellent, food arrived quickly and it was good...not great.
The food was good but definitely pricey - probably to be expected in NYC so in comparison to some “swankier” places it was actually reasonable. I’d recommend for a casual and hearty breakfast in the city!
Amazingly delicious comfort food - and great portions. Very cool nostalgic ambiance and we had terrific service (to be fair we were dining early). Pricey but so are most things in Time Square.
Seated promptly, Kale Caesar Salad with chicken paillard (dressing on the side, I brought my own), was tasty enough...the chicken however was a little tougher than it past times (I always order the same thing). What's with that? For $20 the chicken should be tender.
The food was acceptable. The service was unacceptable. Bring your own waitron if you go.
Disappointed that breakfast items weren't available on a Sunday after 11:30.
We took special children prior to Broadway Show. They enjoyed pancakes even though they had to wait for ordered toppings. The host was accommodating and waitress was smiling. Times Square prices.
came her for lunch on a sunday before broadway show; Unfortunately as it was only 1115, no lunch menu was available. Brunch was good with nice size portions, manhattan pricing . Good for brunch, but nothing truly special
I always enjoy the Brooklyn Diner. The management staff is very friendly. The service is fine depends on the day.
Located in the heart of the theatre district. This place offers a wide choice of foods at very reasonable prices.
Pastrami mac & cheese was the best food I ate in New York City. Great service and plenty of choices to make the whole family happy. Would definitely eat here again.
We went before the theater. The food was great and the service was phenomenal. It was a tad expensive for diner food (however really good), but given location it’s almost understandable.
We were a party of 6 for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Had to wait for about 15 minutes for a table even though we had a reservation and showed up on time. Burgers were excellent. Hummus plate was good. Portions on the large side. Definitely prefer this location than the one on 57th Street. Service was quick and efficient. Solid diner food.
Had breakfast here. The eggs Benedict was excellent. The staff was friendly and efficient. Would definitely eat here again.
Coffee not great! It's essential that coffee is fresh, piping hot and good quality. The coffee needs serious improvement
Great before Broadway Show experience. Exceptional service!
Chicken pot pie was really impressive. Both that and the soup were over salted on this visit but still quite good
We were delighted with the warm welcome we received when we mentioned our earlier lunch at Bond45 and recommendation by Caroline to try the Diner. Our food was delicious and the cozy booth and our champagne toast were a perfect trifecta to a wonderful day after the theater.
The Brooklyn Diner was a good choice before a show when you don't have a lot of time. Basic fare and good service.
Our server, Kale, was excellent. Delicious chicken pot pie. Chicken soup was loaded with chicken and noodles. Great for a bitter cold night. Gem of a restaurant, tucked in a corner of Times Square. Desserts are amazing. Very large portions.
Food was ok a bit overpriced, tho I understand the location is high rent. We were there around 4pm and the place was pretty empty and yet our order still got screwed up. The waiter was very good very nice guy.
Had their famous “Chicken Pot Pie.” Seemed pricey but is enough for 2-3 people depending on how hungry everyone is. It was Fabulous. Go early because they do run out of them!!
Start with desserts!
Spaghetti was cold. Must have been sitting out for a while. If I didn’t have to go to a show would have made them take it back
Love the chicken soup and chicken pot pie. A favorite with my grandchildren. Lots of diner favorites.
Nostagilc place for a breakfast in family. Very cosy. All staff were very friendly.
