    Worth the trip

    I have a friend who worked as a waiter in many diners all around the city over the years. Only a handful of them I still patronize to this day in other words, most of them were not memorable. But Gracie Mews stands out among them, thanks to its' open and pleasant decor, mostly friendly waitstaff (with regard to what I have read in another review, I have seen the staff be a bit "short" with customers on occasion, but usually that is when it is extremely busy, which does often happen on weekends ... though busyness *is* generally the sign of a good restaurant that is worth the wait!), and good food. I would describe Gracie Mews as an "upscale diner", since in addition to the standard diner fare there are some nicer items on the menu as well. The standard diner fare such as sandwiches and burgers are all great. The egg salad, which in my experience varies widely in quality between places, has never let me down. They serve beer and cocktails as well, though I have never particularly thought of going there for a drink. The various pastries are all good as well. The location is a little out of the way unless you live near there, but in my opinion it is well worth the trip (and if you walk to and from, you won't feel so guilty about eating all that great food!).

    Overpriced diner food

    This diner is nothing special, but the prices make you wish for more. Since when did $3.75 become an acceptable price for a side of fries? And they're just so-so. Also, I think at $15 for a chicken caesar, it better be a damn good salad, and it falls short. You can do way better for your money.

    It Gave Me a Headache

    The food in this diner is really good which is why every six months or so I forget and venture back in. The problem is the staff, who are flat out rude. They all yell back and forth amoung the patrons as though no one is there. It is unbearable to sit in the middle of 6 screaming people. I went back in today and the manager took my credit card and said absolutely nothing to me, not even thank you. I have decided, no matter how much I crave their seafood salad, I cannot ever go back in there, it's tragically, one of the worst dining experiences one can endure.

    best diner in the city

    I've lived on the UES for over five years now, and as such have tried many diners. This is the only one I go to now (with the occassional exception of Cafe Luka due to convenience). Food is great, there is lots of room, it's very bright and airy, service is lightning quick, and it's normal priced.

    Smelly patrons

    I've been to this diner twice--the first time it smelled like a nursing home and the second time it smelled like wet dog. I would not recommend!

    For a diner, you could not ask for more.

    GM supplies great food. It is extremly versitile in the roation of menu items. The quality is excelent and the flavors are not drenched by oil. It is quite expensive, but this is one of the only diners where i would order a piece of fish... which is excelent by the way (salmon).
