Ellen's Stardust Diner
Posted by Anonymous on 08/11/2006
This diner was a great place to go for a fun meal! The food is typical diner food, nothing special, but good enough to satisfy us. The service was very speedy, and all the wait staff were very friendly. While the atmosphere was energetic and the music was great to listen to, the restaurant was extremely loud. Don't come here if you're looking to have much conversation because you can barely hear the other people at your table. If you go there with older family members, as I did, then they also have quite a bit of trouble hearing what you said because the music is just so loud.

Every other year we go to new york with out dance team/ group and we have soo much fun. Last year we decided to come here on my friends birthday. We had a blast they sang to her and they asked for some people out of the audiance to dance and a couple of our girls decided to. I am pretty sure that when ever we go to new york for competition we will come here to eat. we have so much fun and soo many good memories. Everything was awesome!!!!

Ellen's is a place to go and experience the energy of Broadway with great singing by some very talented waitstaff. The food is good, not great but good. We both got burgers and although the meat was cooked to order, the buns were stale and dry. Fries were very tasty, just not a huge portion like we Americans are used to nowadays (which was fine by me - I don't need 2 pounds of fries!). Our waitress provided quite good service on a Sunday during the pre-matinee rush. All the waitstaff I saw seemed cheerful and reasonably efficient, which made for an enjoyable meal. Not a regular hangout type of place at all but we'd go back just for the fun of the waitstaff and the great entertainment.

Went here with my mother and my children. It was a great show and the burgers were good. We were tired and hungry and we really enjoyed the wait staff. They were very talented. If you are looking to get a quick buger this is not the place for you but if you want to relax and enjoy some good music then come here. The kids really enjoyed the show and they we're not restless. My mom enjoy the fifties music and the kids had fun too.

I was craving an omelette and came to Ellen's Stardust Diner from menupages. The omelette was not that great at all - it was overcooked and undercooked at the same time, and there was only a handful of fries that came with it. But the atmosphere was great. The waiters really know how to belt out a tune and I liked sitting there listening to them sing - the music was loud enough that you can belt out your own version without anyone looking at you funny. The service is spotty - it took me 10 minutes to get my waitress's attention so I could pay the bill. I wouldn't go back there again, but it was an enjoyable stay while I was there.

It was better than I had expected. The prices are not bad, the portions were good, a fun place, especially for kids, and they do have some healthy options. Our waitress was lovely, the maitre'd was very pleasant, nicer that a lot of other places I have been in NYC! That said, it is touristy, but that is what it is, it is noisy & crowded, but decent. If you go thinking gourmet, you will be disappointed. Three of 3 ate for $43.00, which included 3 entrees, 1 dessert & 2 beverages, tax & tip.

Went to New York for a few days Christmas shopping and ate here twice. Thought the food was good, the service was OK, but the atmosphere was fantastic. It's hard to moan about the wait for a coffee refill when your waiter is singing happy birthday to a child in the audience. One girl who was celebrating her 18th birthday was brought to the front of the restaraunt and sat on a bar stool while the waiter sang a love song to her while feeding her cake. Her day was made. Would definitely go back next visit.
