My husband loved this place; I didn't, now he is changing his view. They charge for refills on soda (not a problem, a lot of places do), but they also charge for iced tea refills! That is something I have NEVER seen before! On weekends, they only have the "brunch menu" and with a set price, including a drink (alcohol). We went before liquor could be served and were still charged the full brunch price. People are not that friendly either.

I order from this diner all the time. The last 5 orders were wrong. Well-done fries, please? soggy and pale; no onions in salad? more onions than anything else. and their cookies are stale as can be. if it were inexpensive food, i might forgive, but it's just money for nothing lately. the quality of the food is getting worse by the week, and they just can't get an order right. take out is handled terribly, while in-house eating is still okay and more careful. but i feel as though i've wasted hundreds of dollars in poor-quality food and incorrect orders over the past few months. i think i'm done.

Wow...this place used to be great. Now? Microwaved waffles and pre-cooked bacon for an exorbitant price tag.

Im from England and when I visited New York in February '11 I came across this diner and for the whole 4 days I stayed in New York I had breakfast here everymorning, the pancakes were lovely and the services was fast. The whole of my college group who was on the trip (around 30 of us) ended up eating there towards the end cause it was the best place around the area we were staying. Highly recommended and also very friendly people.

One random night, I got the munchies at 2 in the morning and realized their was 0 food in my house. So what did I do? I went online and looked up all night delivery restaurants, and I found this! The food was good, I got cheese ravioli (a little plain but I really liked it,) mozzarela sticks, (YUM) and soup of the day (really unexpectedly good- I'd never tried asparagus soup but now I know I love it) which came with my entree! I thought that was pretty cool. The guy over the phone was really nice, and the delivery guy was amazingly dedicated. I buzzed the guy into my apt. building and he seemed to be taking a very long time on the elevator, so I called the restaurant again to see what was up ( my building has two sides to it with different apt. letters on each side so I was worried he got lost) but it turned out that my elevator was broken and he had walked up all nine flights to deliver my food without so much as a call or complaint! I was shocked and touched by his awesome service! And, again, all at 2 in the morning! All and all, I will definitely be calling on them again, (even earlier in the night when other places are still open) and may even venture forth out of my apt. to actually pay them a visit! But most of all, they will always remain my designated after-hours food source right here on the upper west side.

I have loved coming to this diner for years. I remember living in the Bronx and thinking of coming to this place. I consider it a NYC treasure. Everything I've tried I have loved but I especially come out for the Bacon Cheeseburger with steak fries. The potato skins are great and if you love salads you won't be dissatisfied especially when you realize all the dressings are home made and not store bought. The place is also great for their breakfast. Service is good and the wait time is short. Keep in mind this is a Diner folks and not a 5 star restaurant. So for what it is it's a great place.
