We went here for lunch on our last day in NYC. Wish we had gone sooner as it was by far the best casual dining experience we had. The fries alone are worth the journey! Will definitely visit Brooklyn Diner next time we're in NYC - food, service and atmosphere all excellent.

Fantastic breakfast, great value and in a great setting - a diner which all Brits love.

As a Londoner, I am always on the prawl for something different. Having been to NYC many times, I'd never really gotten a 'diner' experience. My friend and I walked into Brooklyn diner by chance and so glad we did. Sat at the bar, we stuck into the Chicken Pot Pie which was divine and a nice glass of wine while chatting to the friendly bar man. Lovely experience and will definitely go back when I'm in NYC next. Nice place to go with a pal for glass of vino and a bite to eat.

I love this place - it is a bit expensive, it is a bit noisy, and sometimes too crowded - however....that's why we com into the city! If we wanted quiet, staid, typical, we'd stay in Westchester, but we don't. When we come in for a performance, Brooklyn Diner is one of two places we frequent. The other is fancy Italian, and mostly the Diner is what we are looking for. All meals are great -breakfast, lunch and dinner. Food is excellent, staff courteous and attentive, and the atmosphere is wonderful. Fun, good food, great and broad menu - what's not to like? It's not your local deli, that's true, and there are many. But there aren't many like Brooklyn Diner.

I was quite pleased with the quality of my pastrami sandwich, as well as the generous portion which was filling without being so huge as to be a joke. To scratch the pastrami sandwich itch, Brooklyn Diner is definitely a better alternative to the touristy and ridiculously overpriced alternatives on neighboring Broadway.

My husband and I went there to dine about a week ago. I was tempted by the Cuban chicken, but I finally decided to have (as my husband) choucroute (a variation on the well known French specialty), which was tasty and abundant. Service was perhaps slow (but because we were in a hurry, otherwise I wouldn't mind), but the waiter was really helpful and friendly; and I did not find the place overpriced or meant for tourists only. On the contrary, I would reccomend this restaurant, especially for the ambiance.

Although the place is overpriced, even for a New Yorker, they do have the best hot dog in the city. Skip the frizzled onion rings (they're greasy and soggy) and just get the hot dog and kraut. It's HUGE, but also excellent. Take it from one who knows! I agree the burger is also good. Pastrami is not good - skip it.
