Take my word for it....if you want the best quality food and generous portions this is your place. Much better than what we call "diner" food .....fresh salads and fresh vegetables. You will pay a little more than you are used to, but you will get your money's worth!

Well we spent a week in New York, over the road from this diner. It was a godsend, because in all honesty it was the only thing I liked about the whole of New York. Hopefully I will never be going back to New York, but if I do I will definitely be revisiting this place! We had steak on a number of occasions and also their pork chops. Both were great and served promptly.

We eat here a couple times per week and are always satisfied. They offer healthy options such as tasty salmon and salads and prepare them to my dietary specifications. My husband likes the steak, burgers and breakfasts. The menu is diverse and the portions are often huge. The waitstaff know us and are friendly and responsive.

They did a huge gut renovation of this place, when what it really needed was an overhaul of the food and service. I went for a breakfast today and the place was not crowded at all. Still it took ten minutes for a server to show up. Then another 10 before the waiter anointed me with his presence. The food was taking forever to arrive so I went to the john only to see my order sitting on the cooks station waiting to be picked up. Suffice to say it was cold when it arrived at my table. The waffle was bready, as if it had hardly been cooked and the bacon was cold. So i sent it back. Then I waited some more. Too long. no appearance by any service staff. Finally I got up, cut my losses, paid for my coffee and got out of there. This place is consistently lousy. They are fortunate to survive on the 3 hotels nearby and the poor unsuspecting tourists who they gouge with high prices, lousy service and mediocre food. Never again. save your money.

My family likes this diner for a quick bite to eat. Good food, not bad prices. Service is alright...really depends on which waiter/waitress you get taking your order. As far as the food goes though, it is definately worth eating there or getting delivery which is usually fairly quick.

I have been a takeout/dine-in customer for 10+ years and I feel I can give give a solid objective review of Metro Diner. The first thing you need to know that Metro is an upper Westside diner so it's not cheap, but the portion sizes are hearty, food is fresh and tasty. My favorites are the turkey burgers, Mediterranean turkey burgers are great they add green peppers, onion and seasonings blended in the patty. If you want it without the feta and pita ask for it on any type of bread and cheese u like. Fried chicken dinner is surprisingly good (has a little soul in it), love the shrimp salad but U have to be assertive when ordering on the phone about the amount they give you or they will skimp on the shrimp. Weekend brunch is good but I agree with all the other reviews service is sub par. And finally the fries are better than a fast food restaurant and the Chocolate Mousse is sublime.

I tried for first time and regret it. Waited 30 minutes for mediocre diner food while tables seated after us got their food promptly. I ordered a cheeseburger and was told my companion's chicken kebab caused the delay because "it was made by scratch". She got a hot mess consisting of chunks of chicken scattered over lettuce and sprinkled with french fries. After we got the check, a busboy starting clearing the table while blocking us from leaving. I will never return.
