Olympic Flame Diner

Don't eat in or order out from here. Delivery order was botched and when they brought a replacement they wanted the old food back. Guess they don' t care about keeping a customer. On 1 occasion ordered chicken pot pie. The waitress brought the salad and after I had eaten half of it she said they were out of the chick pie. Ordered a fish sandwich and bill charged me for the fish deluxe since I had already eaten the salad because I did not know I would not get my original order.

My wife and I had our new daughter at St. Luke's down the block, and I'm so glad Olympic was nearby. They were open late enough to accommodate a quick bite after getting admitted and the diner food is pretty good. The pastrami sandwich was excellent, the mozzarella sticks were just ok. The chicken fingers as fries were good as was the baked potato. Definitely try here if you're at St. Luke's for a few days. Staff is really nice too.

Their menu is that of a traditional diner with some innovations. I've only had their hamburger deluxe platter, which was quite flavourful.

Great diner with great service. I live in the area and order delivery and go to the diner frequently. They have the best filet of sole and turkey meatloaf I've ever had. Olympic flame is the best restaurant in hells kitchen and the upper west side. possibly all of manhattan

I've been stopping in here for a few years, now...my son's school is nearby and he and his mom live a few blocks away..whether it's weekend breakfast, or dinner of an evening, we have always left with a feeling of satisfaction, from the food quality and taste, to the price and service level. A nice touch is the semi-outdoor glassed-in sidewalk sitting area, where you can eat and relax and watch the world go by. Very convenient to Lincoln Center, so try eating there after you attend a performance some evening.

We travel to NYC every Dec. for a weekend of shopping. We meet my cousin in the city for dinner. She lives near by. I like hitting diff. places each year, so when she and my mom suggested this place I did the normal look it up and see first. Anyways, we were there for about 3 hours and the service was fantastic and the food was the same. We were well taken care of and the prices were just right. I say this is the place to be. You even get to see some stars. Rockets eat there and even a star from the Big Apple Circus.

It's close to my place, and has been a reliable eatery for over a year. They recently remodeled and the new decor is very agreeable. The staff is friendly, the food is reliably good, and the prices are par for diners in this area. If you're hungry, you won't go wrong at the Olympic Flame, and it's generally pretty laid back. Since I don't work in the area, I haven't endured a lunch rush, which I imagine might be pretty heavy, but every other time has been great. Highly recommended diner!
