Have been eating at or ordering from Brooklyn Diner for over ten years. Although it is ridiculously expensive we always considered it a delicious treat. But the quality has gone down so far that we will never eat there again nor order the food for delivery. We ordered a burger and some soup. Burger was raw (we asked for medium), fries uncooked soggy mess, little pint of soup (not the quart size they used to send) all for about $40. We now order from a real diner 4 blocks down the street and the burger is 1/3 the price and a whole lot better. Brooklyn Diner: waste of money.

We come down from boston every year I'm from NY originally we have to go to Brooklyn Diner for breakfast. The Manager Alexis is a gem We look forward to seeing him as well as the food. No one has a better breakfast! Everything is outstanding. It 's a must on your list!

My friend and myself had dinner there on Friday night. We were attending a concert at Carnegie Hall. It was bitterly cold outside, and we didn't feel like walking around looking for an alternate restaurant. We were seated promptly, and host gave us a nice big booth. What amazed me was how much "up market" this place has tried to become. We had not been there in several years and were startled by the current prices. We both had the chicken pot pie, which actually was very good. The service was quick and efficient. However, there are better restaurants in the area that are more reasonably priced.

I swore off ever going back to this erzatz "diner" after the last rip-off experience but, it was convenient and we had to be in the neighborhood. So I relented and we went in. We were seated at and undersized table for two with no legroom. A cheerfull waitress eventually turned up and took our order, a tuna sandwich ($18.00) and a cheesburger $(18.00). And, I nearly forgot, a $13.00 bowl of soup. There was no charge for the one glass of water we got. Only one glass because I ordered a $5.00 glass of Coca-Cola so they figured that I was not a water drinker. After a while, out came the soup and the sandwich came before the soup was eaten, but no burger. I thought it was taking a little while to cook because I ordered it medium rare instead in totally raw. It never came. After forever, the waitress came over and asked how I liked my pastrami sandwich, thinking that I had already eaten it and my place was cleared. I said that I ordered a cheesburger and was still awiting for it to come out of the kitchen. The waitress went over to her computer terminal, and I do mean terminal, and reordered the cheesburger that she failed to order to begin with. After a while, it came out and my partner watched me eat it because her meal was long since finished. The burger was eatable, but not special. The check, with reasonable tip, was $65.00. And you call this a "diner"? I come from Brooklyn and wish they would change the name of this place because they give Brooklyn a bad name.

We were in New York in September and we use to walk pass the diner everyday. We stayed on 57th Street. We had lunch and dinner there, great food, good value and service was great. I recommend this diner to anyone. Miss it already.

We discovered the Brooklyn Diner a couple of years ago and make sure we eat here every trip to New York. The food is amazing and huge portions which suits me! The service is great too. We had breakfast here as well as our dinner last month and the cinamontoast with maple syrup, homemade jam and cream was wonderful. I can thoroughly recommend it
