This is a fun place to go - a landmark! The food was average and not a ton of choices. The room is quite warm because the “manager wants us to keep the windows open”. Our server had been working in the heat all day and was less than perky. Still a fun, unique and interesting place to go.

Horrible - never got our appetizer. Food was cold after delivered after an hour there. Manager promised to make it right - second time food was cold again and steak way overcooked. Still never got the appetizer. Didn’t give them another chance. Went across the street and had a great meal.

Staff was friendly and food was good. The sun was hot when sitting by the windows. I would suggest they have a shade that comes down.

We were expecting a finer dining experience as the website listed. We definitely got a rowdier “diner” experience. The server was very attentive at first but seemed to get frustrated later for some reason. The food was better than expected- chicken parmigiana has very large portions and was delicious, hot chicken wrap was good but was not very warm in temp when served.

I ordered the Mediterranean salad and expected a hearty mix of greens (as stated in the menu) but I was served just romaine lettuce, and not much of it. The server told me it was probably the only lettuce they had left. If she told me that when I ordered I would’ve asked for something else. My family was happy with their salmon dinner.

Took an hour and a half for lunch on an uncrowded Monday. We waited over an hour for food. Waiter Nick was nice and We were told the kitchen was jammed before we ordered but there were open tables. The waiter served double duty making drinks and waiting on tables. They were out of chicken dishes. It was freezing inside and they tried to adjust the temp but didn’t change. Just not a good day for them.

I brought my mother here for Mother’s Day and felt so bad because I was so incredibly disappointed in our experience.

The food made me sick, the ambience resembled that of a warehouse in renovation. The air conditioning was on high right over us, the restaurant smelled like a restroom. Service was subpar, no manners, nothing extraordinary.

The Diner is a fitting name because it felt like we were dining at a one stop diner. No wonder they had no business when we got there.


Do not recommend at all.

Good food, cute restaurant! Close to the hustle and bustle of Broadway but at a nice distance to avoid some of the crowd and noise.
