It has the name diner in it, however I would think otherwise after my weekend breakfast there. First off, I will discuss the food. Menu choices look pretty good, but when the food arrives, not at all. This is a "diner", as per the name. Why did it take over 25 minutes to get eggs at a diner. Should never happen at a real diner...has never happened at a REAL diner. Any real place can handle a breakfast rush with efficiency and speed without altering quality. Of the three people, one order was forgotten. My eggs were well done. The avocados were brown. A dining partner asked for salad instead of hash browns. When she picked up the ONE large lettuce leaf, which apparently this disaster place deems a full salad, there was a puddle of grease and remnants of hash browns. When asked for a new plate, we were given a DIRTY plate. Blatant food crumbs from another person. When we asked the hostess for the manager, we were ignored. After flagging down the manager, the manager so as to appear like he cared opted to berate the waitress in full volume in front of us as well as other diners. Absolutely unprofessional. The only hint of light in this otherwise disaster experience was the busboy. He was vigilant in refilling our coffee, which is what usually happens in any real diner. Therefore, I highly recommend going elsewhere. Unfortunately, there still are no real diners in the LES. This was the first and last time I will step foot in that place. Bottom line, the remedy for hunger is anything but Remedy. If you want better quality and service, go anywhere else.

Great Portions, tasty breakfasts. I havent had any other meals there except breakfast, so can't really judge. The atmosphere is great. Staff are nice.

i've eaten here 2x w/ my bf & even tho the portion is huge (can be shared) the food has either no flavor or poor flavoring ... do not get the momma's meatloaf. They make it sound so yummy on the menu but there's practically no flavor! The pasta taste like regular tomato sauce unseasoned & sometimes it taste like ravioli sauce (chef boyardee) The omelette has no salt or flavor, i had to add a lot of ketchup to it. I would say the only thing i would even go back to order would be the chicken noodle soup but that was too salty.

I have ordered delivery several times from this place and have had one miss when I ordered a burger that came with a beef patty and a bun, but over all everything has been delicious. Eating there is also pretty good. They always seem to be a bit short staffed or training, but the food, charm and prices make up for it. I have not had a bad meal there and their fried chicken is great! They make good food and the eggs are cheep compared with every other diner around. I am glad remedy is there and I hope it hangs around. It is a nice addition to the neighborhood.

I've ordered from or eaten at this place three times and they can't get it right. The fries and cold, they forget to put mayo on the sandwiches and the service is terrible. I just had the worst turkey club of my life. The people working at Remedy need to turn off the television, stop gossiping in the corner and start (at least attempt) to run a New York diner.

I love Remedy Diner! I've always had friendly, fast service and the food has always been great. Mind you, I come in every single week with a group of about 12 or so, around 2am (after a show). So, the place is usually not very busy. But, it's nice that the servers don't forget that we're there and our waters are always refilled. Our orders are correct and the food is good. I don't know what people are expecting out of a diner, but I don't think you could get much better in Manhattan, price-wise or service-wise. Remedy is great!

I've now been here four times and have had the burgers, sandwiches, and pasta. All of which were huge and delicious. They even give you jalepenos and pickles on the side! The onion rings are awesome, as are the fries. The inside of the dinner is very nice too. The place is new so it seems like the waiters are still learning but they are very nice. A must try for anyone in the neighborhood.
