Gracie Mews Diner
Posted by UESer Diner on 09/15/2011
Having eating there for well over a decade I say that this diner is ok if 1)you order very basic foods, such as Tuna Fish, Grilled Cheese, Eggs, burgers and soup and 2) don't mind paying a few dollars more than you think you should. I've read on this board people saying the food is fantastic. Compared to what? Yes, if you are from Ethiopia. No way, if you are from NYC. The food is average and no better than the other diner's that are nearby, namely, the Green Kitchen, Restaurant 79 or The Silver Star Diner. However, the booths and during the day, light from the big windows make the experience much better the other diners. Compared to good diners in Manhattan, L.I. and N.J, Gracie Mews' food is average, with higher than average prices. However, with 2nd Ave Deli nearby and a bunch of new places, such as Boca on Second ave, all in the same price range for a complete dinner/meal, I cut back on diner food for better prepared and higher quality food.

Tried ordering through seamless and after 30 mins I called to see if everything had went through okay. The guy could not have been more rude or dismissive to a simple inquiry. Almost immediately after hanging up, seamless web called me directly to say they too tried calling the restaurant and had the same treatment. I have been a regular customer, ordering at least once a week for the past 5 years but will never again be ordering delivery from Gracie Mews. Extremely disappointing!

I have been coming here fore 10 years, i have seen the transformation of this wonderful diner. yes it is a bit pricey, but worth every penny because of such good quality. Now with the outdoor seating, this place is a must! Definitely best diner UES, with the Mansion diner coming in second

Ordered Greek Yogurt as a side with omelet, 8.95! for a cup of greek yogurt with 3 tablespoons of granola! $20 brunch for 2 became $30, never going here again after 5 months of weekly dining.

It's a good place to eat in. Good food and service. However, never order delivery from them. They got my last delivery 3 orders wrong and took a long time to deliver. I'll never order from them again. When I called, they blamed me for ordering the wrong thing.

When I need food that's wholesome, good, quick, and filling I go to Gracie's. The Greek owners know how to run a quality diner in Manhattan. The place has great food and doesn't keep people waiting. They make sure you have a seat, bring you your water, and are quick to get your order in. For delivery, they get your order and within 5 minutes my food arrives... now that's service! I've been to 5 star restaurants in NYC and this place far out weighs the friendly service, good food, and good price. If you're not happy, go to the Meatpacking District and you'll see what I mean... Gracie's is the ultimate neighborhood diner and one of the reasons I haven't moved in 8 years!

I've been a long time customer here. The food is fantastic, but the prices have gotten out of control. They are spitting in your face with these prices. It is absolutely ridiculous. The only way it will change is if customers refuse to pay them, which is what I am now going to do. If you pay what these greedy people are charging, you are a sucker, pure and simple.
