Come in any time of the day or night for an old-fashioned New York "Greek diner" experience. A friendly, high-energy wait staff that definitely remembers regulars (and their favorite dishes, too!) Be sure to ask for the Chicken Souvlaki WELL DONE for an extra taste treat...and don't miss the broccoli and cheddar omelette. Portions are hearty, the coffee flows generously, and the atmosphere is always welcoming.

$20+/- plus tip for breakfast. for 2. Unlimited coffee (note: the wait staff keeps it topped off) great service. Omelette's and hash browns are unbelievable. Toast just right. Great orange juice.Food is delivered as soon as it is done cooking. Cereal is available as well as a big cold display case of desserts. No real crowd around 8 or 9am weekdays. Head waiter a bit on the strong side but pleasant. All I can say is this: bring a empty stomach and a couple of $20's and be prepared for a feast with a bit of a view.

This is a 'fancy' diner, not a dive diner. the food is good, but don't expect diver diner food. it's fancy. fritatta's (8bucks) $9 bagels and burgers with roquefort... not complaining though, it's a good diner, but expect to spend more than at your typical diner. everything is good, the chicken souvlaki is great & very big. very good bran muffins & i love the lemon cocnut cake, never had one like it. they seat you very quickly even if there is a long line.

Their meatloaf is the best I've tasted-- and the mashed potatoes are real! With lumps of potato in them. Delivery was pretty fast.

I have been going to Metro Diner for over a year now and have had very positive experiences. The food is really great, and even if you are a vegetarian like myself there is plenty of variety. The staff I have encountered there are friendly and like to chat with customers, I find this to be very rare in New York- which many times unfortunately is NOT a friendly city. So it is refreshing to find a place where that stereotype is not applicable! Also- their delivery seems to be much quicker than other restaurants in the area.

Great value for money! Food is good and the menu is very diverse! The special day menu + friendly staff + quick service makes it a good place to start your day or just to have a good lunch!

There is absolutely nothing to fault with this diner. The food is delicious, quick to arrive, unlimited coffee, excellent value for money and the staff are lovely. I ate breakfast here every day before moving back to England. I hope Alex, the lovely Greek waitor stays there forever!
