Orion Diner & Grill
Posted by Mom Across The Street on 06/21/2013
I was so excited when Orion opened- it was a thousand times better than the vile place before. But a year later it's back to being vile. They opened with a great staff but all have been replaced with less friendly people. The food is icky at best and expensive. My favorite part is the charge different amounts for the same things everything I go. A hot chocolate can be anything from 2.25 to 4.75. I'm done- going back to the Cooperstown on 1st and 20th- so much better, consistent and yummy. And much more kid friendly.

My daughter insisted on eating here for the Irish burger. They no longer make it but was more then willing to make two up for us. Nice service, excellent burgers! So happy to have a good diner in the neighborhood again. I just ordered & I hope I don't have to eat my words: /

I'm a sucker for a broiled half chicken NYC diner dinner. Having crossed Sunflower off my list, thought I'd try Orion. Delivery order 'special instructions' said: DO NOT (3x all caps) remove skin. You guessed it! It arrived skinless AND, as an added attraction, it had bee hacked almost through in 5-6 places with a cleaver. I'm guessing it cooks faster that way.

Never went here when it was Cosmos b/c just looked dirty and unappetizing. After the renovation, decided to try it and was very pleasantly surprised! Have been back almost every weekend for a few months now for breakfast. Service is friendly, food is good diner food, and the place is clean. I give it 4 stars across the board for being a well done diner.

This diner used to be Cosmos - then got a makeover as Orion. It was a welcome change, as the place was completely renovated. Food was okay - service was okay when not too busy. But now they have a new manager who is rude and pompous. Who needs to be treated with distain when you are just going for a quick bite? Better go elsewhere till they change managers.

It's a bit over priced. But the foods not bad.

Had been a regular Cosmos Diner customer for years. Orion replaced it. Not sure if it's the same owners after the renovation. The burgers are inedible. The Turkey Club was far inferior to the Cosmos sandwich. Hope it gets better but you won't find out through me because I won't be going back.
