    The food was really good, and the service was excellent! However, it was very expensive. For three people to eat it should not have been $96.

    I just want to say our server Lefteris is AMAZING! He took wonderful care of us. The service was amazing and the food was wonderful! He was very attentive and made sure our experience was great. Also the manager erjauti? I think that’s how you spell it is so super great! Kept checking on us the whole time. It’s definitely a family like atmosphere and it’s what keeps us coming back!

    A classic deli diner, a fulfilling menu that is not overwhelming. One can’t go wrong, just know, peak times for a late breakfast or brunch will always be crowded. I was surprisingly impressed with their latte.

    The Carnegie diner was a pleasant lunch for a group of six of us. While the fare is limited, the portions were generous, and everyone enjoyed their lunch . The staff was kind, and accommodating. The location is great, so close to the park.5(3 place was clean and well run.

    Carnegie Diner was fantastic. Exactly what we were looking for. The staff were excellent, the food was wonderful. Our kiddos loved having so many options. It was exactly what were were hoping for for a NYC diner experience on our vacation.

    We were so glad to have a reservation because it was very busy at lunchtime and we had a 3:00 show to catch. The menu is creative and has plenty of options. The food was cooked perfectly and tasted delicious. It took a little longer than we like for a server to stop by and greet us and take our order, but otherwise it was a very perfect experience and we will definitely go back again.

    Service was good, but not exceptional. Guess, we never get back good service as it was before at any place, correct me if I’m wrong. Nevertheless, food was good. Usually for the first visit I order simple dish, it was very well cooked and satisfying. The ambiance of the place is very energetic and diverse. Overall, good place to have lunch.

    Warm and inviting wait staff. We had a great table for two in the corner with a picture window to witness the hustle and bustle of New York. No one will ever leave the Carnegie Diner hungry. Ample portions. The star of the show, after eating breakfast there 3 times in 5 days was the Buttermilk pancakes with butter and maple syrup. Truly outstanding. The other item that also gets accolades is there fresh squeezed orange juice… mmm mmm good.

    We went for breakfast at Carnegie Restaurant and had wonderful service each time. Lots of variety and large portions. Come with an appetite. Recommend any omelet on the menu! My son particularly enjoyed the buttermilk pancakes. The table staff and maître D were friendly and quick. Would absolutely recommend this place and look forward to going back.

    My eggs benedict was delicious & the hash browns that accompanied were fantastic, crisp on the outside….side salad with balsamic unnecessary but got a few greens so good! My friend got a marvelous omelette stocked full of meat and cheese and avocado and cheese that satisfied her hunger! The people next to us on both sides got the pancakes that were devoured! Nice little place with friendly and great service!

    Excellent choice for dinner before Carnegie Hall across the street. Splurge on the 24 layer chocolate cake--you'll need to split it at least 4 ways. The wait staff is excellent. Would've liked a little more room at the table but I guess that's expected in Manhattan.
