3 Star Diner

I'm not sure why I have had a completely different experience compared to the other reviewers on this site. I've been living in nthe UES for 3 years and have consistently ordered from 3 star. The food is great, not greasy and the delivery is superfast, i've ordered in the morning, afternoon and even at 2am...this place is consistently good. I've tried other diners up here and have been dissapointed. The grilled chicken, eggs, hamburgers and souvlaki sandwiches are great!!

I should've read other people's review of this place before. The food was ok, the service was ok. Night shift or manager whoever that wasn't too friendly... There are so many better diners around Upper East Side.

Ordered Delivery- arrived 45 mins later. Toast was cold and soggy and eggs were also cold. Called to complained, he claimed he told me it would take 20-25 mins. He did no such thing.

The service is pretty good except for the late night manager I guess you call him that. He always seems so uptight. Maybe he needs to go to sleep? I love a few of the waiters they are always smiling. The food is alright. It's not the greatest & it's not the worst. If you just happen to get bored with the rest of the diners then I guess this could be one of those last options. Though there was one incident where we sat on an unclean table with leftover crumbs that I did not like.

I call 3 Star Diner for deliveries, never go there to order and eat. The food is ok, but nothing to praise. This diner uses the same artificial, low-quality ingredients as any other standard diner, and the cooks can barely put it together. If you're desperate in the middle of the night, however, this joint is open 24/7, and they don't usually take very long to delivery. The phone order takers can be rude, most are inexperienced...speak as clearly and slowly as you can but these guys will have to ask you to repeat the info over and over. Part of the problem is that they don't speak English well. But, the main problem is they don't care whether you call; it seems like they are trying to disuade you from calling again. The LAST thing I need is to get into an argument with someone taking my food order at 4::00 AM, so I usually put up with mild abuse and get off the phone quick as possible. A new diner is opening across the street from 3 Stars. Actually, it's the old Green Kitchen diner, with a fresh coat of paint. When it opens for business I will forget all about 3 Stars if it's better, even by a hair.

Food is the only reason to go back to the 3 Star Diner. The waitresses are are not good. They forget to bring drink orders and once they realize you don't have a drink, it takes five minutes....but the food is good. Great people watching in this place...

This diner is the classic "Greek Diner" type. Simple food.. an ok atmosphere...with a great group of hardworking people trying to make a hard business workout. This week I went to 3 Stars four times and the food and service was fine. When I arrived the manger (who i think is also the owner) greeted me with a warm smile and a simple Hello. From his expression I understood that he really cared about the business and tried his best to make my experience a little more pleasent. Overall, I think that if you want a simple meal this is a great place to go.
