    Less singing, more service!

    I work in Manhattan so I would never go to a place like this ordinarily. Some relatives from out of town were in the city for the day so I can't complain that we ended up going to a touristy place like Ellen's. Let me start off by saying that as a musician myself, the waitstaff at Ellen's is pretty talented. That being said, this place is obnoxious. Our southern belle waitress was a phenomenal singer but was a) clearly more focused on her singing career and b) trying to work on her idea of what a New York City attitude is. I must say it was a bit contrived though. The place has no atmosphere whatsoever. The waiters sing and don't take your order or bring your food. In between songs there's no house music playing, just awkward silence. Plus the staff didn't know how to work the sound system resulting in ridiculous feedback several times. The volume in general is a bit overwhelming. Food is decent diner food at upscale Manhattan prices. A $10 burger elsewhere is $16 at Ellen's. On top of that, our waitress got on the mic at one point and announced that they would be passing around a collection plate of sorts for the aspiring artists(who are already getting regular tips). Tacky to say the least. Don't waste your time. You're better off satisfying your desire for song and dance at a Broadway show and having lunch or dinner somewhere else.

    Fun and Fantastic!!

    My 12 year old daughter and I were in NYC for the weekend and we went into Ellen's on Friday night at around 6:30. There was no wait and we were seated quickly. I cannot imagine eating at this restaurant and not having fun. The food is diner food, but well made and very good. Considering the waitstaff is singing while working, the service was pretty good. We had so much fun, we returned on Saturday for lunch.

    AMAZING

    I have so much fun at the stardust diner. Every time i go to the city I go there for lunch. We usually go see Broadway plays around there and they always sing at least one song from it. The only con is that it's usually a long line so you shouldn't go if you're in a rush. The line is definitely worth it though!

    It was just Great.

    I really found this place to be a gem in NYC. Great atmosphere, welcoming and friendly. The food was excellent and the service was superb. I highly enjoyed the singing and how social the singing staff were. I felt right at home and honestly didn't want to leave. It was sad when I had to fly all the way back to Canada and know it would be a long while before I could ever go back.

    Totally Awesome. A must in NYC.

    My friends and I went to this restaurant on one of the first nights we were in the city. It was so wonderful that we had to go back. The food was great and honestly was not overpriced for a place right near Time Square. The singing staff was absolutly amazing, singing fimiliar songs and enouraging cutsomers to sing a clap along. Our server both times was very friendly and made us feel right at home. The talent of this staff was unbelievable and we were quite generous when tipping for their acting, singing and dance lessons. I honestly wish I go again because the atmosphere was just so welcoming and fun. I will most defiantly go back there one day. For me, this place is a must whenever in New York. Sincerely, Bucks for Broadway, Canada
