Stopped in for dinner this past week, overall found it to be a good value. Only disapointment was charging for every glass of Iced Tea. At $1.60 each, this was a surprise. I'll head to my other regular diner instead where tea is "bottomless."

My bf and i went to midtown just to have breakfast and it was really good. The food was great, not greasy or undercooked, it was presented very nicely in a timely manner and tasted good as well. Plus, the price is just right. we plan on going more often!

Monday 15th May, heavy rain, thankfully the diner is quiet when we arrive soaked through, as it’s a quarter after ten in the morning. The décor is bright and clean. For breakfast I choose a Midtown Wrap and my wife has a three-egg vegetarian omelette, both with juices, fries, toasts, coffee/ tea. For me, an Englishman, the tea was neither hot nor strong enough though. However, second helpings were offered and accepted but I will stick to the coffee in future. All-in-all the breakfast was very good though and it kept us going till dinner time. Another great find for breakfast dining.

This restaurant was a life saver for us. We found a great place for breakfast & lunch. No other restaurant near us, was even close to the frendliness and food the Midtown Restaurant has. Great food at great prices. Caution! - the portions are large! This place made our stay in NY, NY even better. Visitor from Columbus, OH.

8 of us were easily accommodated for breakfast on a weekday morning. Extensive menu, something for everyone at very reasonable prices. Floor to ceiling 'windows' open to the street so the restaurant is not hot and stuffy, sit near the windows and it's like eating at a cafe. We will certainly be back!

Very good breakfast/brunch every single day of the week. And you won't have to wait for a table. I can't disagree with the other reviewer that the waitresses are beautiful and kind. Great omelettes and breakfast specials, don't miss the ones that incorporate avocado for something a little different.

Midtown Restaurant is one of the best kept secrets in the East 50's. Sandwiched between Shun Lee Palace and Da Antonio's on E 55th St, Midtown consisently delivers really great comfort food at an amazing price. But the real attraction at Midtown are the two waitresses - Ursula and Renee. Ursula is a stunningly beautiful blonde from Poland with blue eyes. Tall and lithe, with cheeks touched by the rosy fingers of dawn, she is a dead ringer for Gwyneth Paltrow. Renee has blonde hair and gorgeous brown eyes, and a body that only Boticelli could paint. Now onto the food. Midtown serves the best hamburger on the east side. $4.25 buys an oversized freshly made burger that beats the charbroiled hockey pucks down at Burger Heaven. The meat is lean and flavorful, and the bun nice and toasty. The triple decker turkey club sandwich combines lean turkey, tomato, lettuce and bacon between three layers of toast. This sandwich has always been a sure hit, providing enough food for two meals. Chicken oregonata appears as a daily lunch special - a tender, juicy white meat chicken breast with new potatos. The chicken caesar salad is a delight for those on the Atkin's diet and highly recommended for those seeking a lighter meal.
