The food quality and atmosphere have declined over the years, but the food is still average to good diner food. The staff can be rude at times, particularly when you call for delivery...I've had them hang up on me in the past when they had trouble understanding me, but if I were working there I wouldn't be to friendly either. However, for a late meal with friends after a night of drinking or for fast/free delivery, they are the best.

Came here on the last day of our New York holiday as we were staying close by. It was fantastic! Wish we'd gone everyday. Huge portions, keen service, great value.

To say that that City Diner's food is excellent would be misleading. As a diner their food is what is to be expected or better, and usually good. City is the best diner in the area. Staff are sometimes a little abrupt & curt, but hey - don't tip if the service is BAD!

Good food, good value, fun (if slightly worn) art deco interior. The service is quick if occasionally spotty. But overall, exactly what I expect and hope for from a neighborhood diner. Glad it's so close to my apt...during stress times it becomes my second kitchen!

I've been ordering once or twice a day from City Diner since my oldest daughter was born 22 years ago. When I call, the people who answer the phone recognize my voice and say "14A?" The deliveries come quickly and the food is hot and excellent. My kids love Haagen Dazs ice cream, which is what CD serves, so sometimes we call just to order that. I love their coffee, and when I'm away it's one of the NYC things I miss the most. Best items for take out are anything breakfast, soups, burgers, ravioli, tom turkey dinner; the grilled fish can be surprisingly good. Now that my kids are older they like to hang out at CD in the wee hours of the morning (It's open 24/7). It's a safe, well lit place to be at those hours, and the staff is kind to the kids, so I'm delighted they have this option. CD is a friendly community center for the Upper West Side. I never fail to see friends and neighbors there, and know we all benefit from this wonderful place.
