    I'm really into this place

    I like food, good food, I especially find that while NY is a wonerful place to eat, no one has the creativity and guts to have a menu comprised almost entirely of specials. This place does. If you like going to places and ordering the same thing day in and day out without surprises and vegetables flown in from south america then this is not your place. Local, seasonal, great flavors, everything cooked to perfection and it will not kill your wallet. The atmosphere is welcoming and you don't get the sort of pretension that comes with obnoxious places all over NY. I'm a NY'er and I have to say this is the sort of place that more restaurants should be following an example of.

    Nothing Finer

    This place serves fine, unpretentious food with the best and freshest ingredients, really a pleasure. Slightly pricey but what isn't these days?

    good but forgettable

    wish the menu was more dependable......when you have food allergies you have to sort of know what you are in for..... the food is good here but for some reason it just doesn't stand out and we sort of forget about keeping in our restaurant rotation..... we had some sort of roasted chicken that i think i remember wishing came with vegetables.

    totally terrific

    I've been to diner twice in the past month, and both times it was amazing. The menu is tiny (non-existant, really) but after sittin down and friendly and professional waiter will tell you a list of 15 or so specials that all feature local, fresh ingredients. The prices are high - but so is the quality. The beef is grass-fed and the chicken is free-range, and even the simplest dishesh (like a steak or roast chicken) are something to write home about. just delicious. the best part is that they understand that for the money - you shouldn't be rushed - i was sitting for dinner for two adn we lingered on for a half hour, easily and we were never rushed, just given refills of coffee. this place is highly highly recommended. the only drawback is that it's a bit crowded and loud, but still an overall pleasnt atmosphere.

    worthwhile

    You can tell this place's menu genuinely revolves around local and seasonal food. And its delicious. That's what counts to me. Local/delicious.

    Positively Pretentious! But good food.

    Do you like wait people drawing on your paper table cloth? Well, if so, head on over to Diner. The wait staff are friendly enough. And of course hipsters. What is annoying is that aside from the menu, which is limited, the extensive list of specials is written nowhere. Your wait person will come to your table, take out a pencil, and tell you about the specials while simultaniously writing shorthand on your table lest you forget (and you will, trust me, especially after a glass of wine.) So if you were being told about "Trout Almondine with withered kale and butternut squash puree" you would have a fish drawn on your table, and perhaps the word "Almond". What you end up with after all meat and veggie optoins are outlined is a table cloth (well paper) that resembles a shopping list for someone on their way to Fairway. Annoying to say the least! And even worse the imposed system does not leave clear impression of the specials in your mind (unless you play the game of concentration regularly) because aside from the word scrawled on your table you are also told in detail about sides, etc. I was so annoyed by this system I felt like turning the tables (literally) and drawing what I wanted when the waiter came by for a beverage order! If you can get past this, the food is good and the atmosphere is very cool old diner. I'm not sure I would go again if it were my choice.
