    Great time!

    Was at Ellen's yesterday after a matinee Broadway show, and have to say it was a lot of fun. I was w/ a group of 12 people, we had reservations for 5pm. We were seated immediately downstairs. Our table was ready w/cokes and utensils. Then, we ordered right away. I had the cheeseburger w/lettuce and tomato and french fries. Despite that they cook the burgers all the same, mine was not overcooked and tasted delicious on a brioche roll/bun. After that, we had mini ice creamsundaes. They were okay. they looked like they were pre-made and left in the freezer, since they were pretty much frozen vanilla ice cream w/chocolate fudge on the bottom and whip cream and sprinkles on the top. The highlight of this place was definitely the wait staff. They were also entertainers and singers. They sang a bunch of oldies 1950s songs and were dressed like the 1950s. They all had great voices too. Would visit this place again!

    Excellent

    Delicious food, excellent entertainment, great staff! Definitely worth a visit while staying in New York. I would highly recommend this restaurant. We visited this restaurant while in New York City two years ago, and was very impressed. One of the highlights of our visit to the City.

    Fun! Fun! Fun!

    Three of us were there on 5/13 & we had a BLAST! This was the second time for us. The food is good & plenty of it, but the atmosphere is what makes this place so much fun! We would love to hear that some of these talented waiters/waitresses really do "make it" on Broadway. Most of the fun is singing along & even dancing in the aisle (our waiter grabbed my daughter). It's loud & noisy, but fun & we will definitely go to Ellen's the next time we get to NYC.

    A night to remember

    I went to nyc for my first time this past new years eve...we arrived to this diner the day before new years eve and they told us about the activities that were going to be happening that night. Having no place to go for New Years we decided to come back...while waiting outside my boyfriend decided to take this opportunity to propose to me....once inside he asked our waitress if he could keep the menu...she asked why..he told her and she took down our information....a half hour later my fiance started getting serenaded by all of these waitresses....it was precious...shortly after that our waitress got on the loud speaker and told everyone our engagement story....she then had us come to the dance floor and we got serenaded by a waitress... the atmosphere was AMAZING..the food was to die for and the service was exquisite....and it was right in times square so we got to toast at midnight on times square.....it was a fabulous exxperience!

    Not recommended for New Yorkers

    This was an unpleasant experience for me. I didn't know what Ellen's was walking into it, but once inside I realized it was very touristy. Overpriced food, loud music, the restaurant was a full house. But I decided to give it a try nevertheless. It was a mistake. It was so loud I couldn't even hear myself speak much less my boyfriend. The kind of fun part was when the waiters sang and danced. I laughed at how silly it all was. This place is 100% for out-of-towners and their kids.

    Amazing impressions

    To be honest, I can't rate the food, as I was simply waiting for my friend's girlfriend - I ordered a coke - the taste was tipicaly "coke" and US - Like - too cold - due to much ice, but I could have ordered it with out ice... - she was trying dancing shoes somewhere else... But what I can say is, I felt authenticaly put back to the 50ies... The music, the staff... it was perfect - from what I can say - I'm only 25! Also I liked to be involved in the "show" programm - I I could post here a pic, I'd do it... I'll be back 2006 in sept. hopefully the impressions will be topped!

    I wouldn't recommend it

    The atmosphere was absolutely amazing, but the food was not! It was overpriced, but you have to think of it as paying for the entertainment. Service was pretty poor as well. We were rushed out of the restaurant and couldn't even get a second glass of water! It's definitely one of those things you have to do just to say you've been there and had the experience.
