    The host was very friendly and welcoming. The wait staff and servers were professional and courteous. The food was very delicious. Service was quick and efficient, and allowed us to arrive at our event at Carnegie Hall on time.

    Brooklyn Diner was a fun place to eat with my kids before catching a show. Food was good. Pot Pie was HUGE but delicious. Kids had Steak Frites and Burger and both were very happy with their choices. Service was attentive. Restaurant was clean.

    The deluxe cheese burger is the way to go. Delicious! For dessert we could decide to go with the chocolate blackout cake or the cheesecake, so we went with both Yummy! The fresh lemonade is the perfect blend of tart and sweet mix with unsweetened iced tea perfection

    Were anticipating having their chicken pot pie, but they were out of it. Instead my husband had steak which was too salty. I had the Special Dish (hummus, quinoa , etc. with blackened salmon, which was good.

    The host graciously welcomed me. I was seated at a quiet, comfortable booth. My waiter quickly arrived. He helped clarify a few menu items, then happily took my order. While my order was prepared, I enjoyed the nostalgic ambiance of the diner. My meal arrived, in a timely fashion. It was nicely prepared and very tasty! I enjoyed my time, at the Brooklyn Diner!

    We never leave negative reviews but this has to be a first. The cheeseburger tasted funky (how do you ruin a cheeseburger?) and the waffle toasted cheese was tasteless and frankly beyond inedible. A total waste.
