Olympic Flame Diner
Posted by nycfdcritic on 12/12/2010
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!

Great diner food. Clean restaurant. Service very good. Great diner cake too! Would definitely be a regular if I lived closer.

I order delivery/take out from this traditional diner all the time. They are always super quick to deliver and the food comes in huge proportions - I always have a second meal leftover. They also always include little extras that make a difference - bread and butter with your pasta, extra sauces, salt and pepper... just really nice to have a place pay attention to details like that. The prices are reasonable, and their phone manner is very polite. Plus they always offer me a seat and a glass of water while I wait for my take out order, great service. If you eat in, they have a great heated sun room around the whole front of the place that's nice year round, and the whole place is clean and pretty big for a NYC diner. It's not a fancy place, just a reliably good diner experience.
