Ate here 3 times during my 4 day stay. Obviously loved my breakfast since I came back for more that evening for dinner. The waiter and kitchen staff were wonderful. All smiles and quick. Definitely recommend. Reasonably priced also. Was even entertained just watching the staff hustle. You don't see that too often.

I have not had a lot of items here yet. But ordered the mucho nachos- belch huh! Not only did they give my condiments in very small containers, the the chilly use was definitely from a can! The chips were ok.

I live a block away and have eaten here a few times. The simple staples like a club sandwich or burger are okay. But a lot of foods they serve are clearly frozen and should not be. (Fresh waffles? Forget it.) Too much of their food obvious was packaged in giant bags or boxes far away months ago. It affects the taste and even texture. "Fresh" is not a word that applies to this place. Just stick to foods that are simple to prepare and unlikely to be frozen (eggs, bacon, simple sandwaiches, etc.). But don't expect quality from everything else (french fries, waffles, chicken strips, salads, vegetables, etc.)

When I saw that Key West Diner had closed I assumed it was for renovations (which were badly needed considering the general buildup of grime). Only a few months later a new diner opens up in its place and I was livid. I refused to go in out of spite for the first few months but starving and around midnight the other night my wife and I decided to break down and give Manhattan Diner a shot. Not that I make many decisions but this had to have been of my all time best. The new decor is vintage and modern simultaneously and the service made us feel special. The food didn't come out as fast as it did when it was Key West but the food at Key West didn't taste as delicious as Manhattan. The service also included a charming conversation that was both topical and humorous. Needless to say we left with a smile on our faces and our stomachs full of good eats. Enjoy!

I've gone to another diner for years but recently the service as well as the quality of the food have gone downhill. The last time I went the server messed up my order. When my order finally came 45 minutes later, it was burnt. After this disappointing experience, I decided to check out the newly redesigned Manhattan Diner. I was very impressed! Handsome decor and Great burgers, fries and shakes. Also had tried their Vegetarian Fritatta on another day - perfectly cooked and with a generous portion of vegetables. I'm going to Manhattan Diner from now on.
