Food was delish!!! Servings were large. If you are looking for an a/c spot to eat, you wont find that here...it is slightly crowded and really warm... but dont let that drive you away from the good food!!!

I was on holiday in New York in February and ate at the diner for breakfast a couple of times. The service and atmosphere were great and the food was a cut above anything else we ate in New York. Not that cheap but i thought reasonable for its location and standard.

Walked in at 6:30 on Saturday, seated 5 immediately. Service was quick. We ordered a turkey sandwich, pulled pork sandwich, mac and cheese and a cheeseburger. All were good, servings are large with ample sides. Didn't have room for desserts but they were huge. No problem with AC. Gratuity included in the check.

I walked into this place and was pleased until the heat hit me harder then outside. We were seated near the door which did nothing but make us hotter. As we sat trying to make it at least through to the drink order, we couldn't do it. We told the waiter as he came over with a huge warm welcoming smile. That we couldn't do the heat. He then told us that, the AC had been out for two years and that they lose business as a result of it. And, even with all that said; this place was still semi packed. I'm not sure of it was out of desperation that people sought out this place despite the heat. The next day we wanted some real breakfast food and we thought back to how nice the waiter was and how nice the place actually looked inside considering the were going for the diner feel with a bit chic NYC flavor. We went back and since it was rainy out and had a little breeze; it wasn't that bad. We had brunch and granted it had it's moments but overall wasn't worth the $55 ($65 w/tip) that we paid. I was hoping for more and got so much less.

We went to Brooklyn Diner for Sunday brunch at noon with some friends from out of town before going to the theater. The restaurant was busy but we were not rushed at all. Our waiter was pleasant and attentive but not overbearing the food prices were reasonable, especially since we didn't have to order a full brunch menu and the portions were nicely sized, bordering on large. When I ordered tea it was delivered with a full pot of hot water, a tea bag of my choice, a slice of lemon and an individual jar of honey, the last one being a particularly nice touch. It's definitely a place I'd return to.

Not cheap, but great food. I think it was well worth the money.

For those who've never been to the Brooklyn Diner, especially this one in Time Square, here's the reality check: You're NOT going to get the food for cheap. IT IS Times Square (and New York in general) after all. Short of hot dogs and vendor carts most things in the Big Apple and particularly in this neighborhood are expensive. However I found this place to be a big bang-for-your-buck experience. My fiance and I were looking for a different restaurant to dine in one night and she spotted this one. Admittedly I was very skeptical but it didn't take me long to realize how wrong I was. Yes, the cuisine is mostly simple and typical diner food but the quality of ingredients is very good. The portions, from appetizers to entrees to deserts, are all huge and very fair as far as New York prices go. Unless one hasn't eaten all day prior to entering I doubt anyone can finish all of a 3-course meal(we were so full from the appetizers we didn't even finish half of our entrees so we bagged them to save room for desert). Although our waiter was ever-so-slightly slow, she was polite and courteous and it's worth mentioning we dined during pre-theatre hours so the place was absolutely packed. We were very impressed overall with this restaurant. In fact, being from Florida I was delightfully surprised to see conch fritters on the menu as it's been very difficult to get those, much less of good quality. And they were delicious. All in all, when I see New York again this will certainly be near of the top of the list of restaurants I'm going to.
