I have been going to Renaissance religiously for four years. You can't beat the portion/price ratio. Plus, in the winter the fireplace in back makes for a very cozy dining experience.

Have been here twice for breakfast and would visit again. Service is unhurried in a city where most restaurants want to turn the table over quickly -- even on a busy Saturday morning. Wait staff is pleasant and quick to respond when signalled. Portions are more than enough. Prices are better than many diners in and outside of Manhattan. Try the create-your-own-omelette (choice of 4 fillings).

I used to order from these guys all the time, but after a few rounds of bad deliveries, I gave them up. It's been a while, so I figured I'd give them another chance. What do I get? Cold, soggy fries squashed on top of the driest turkey triple decker sandwich I've ever had. Bacon was pure fat. I asked for mayo on the sandwich, and it comes on the side. I ask for apple crumb pie, and not a crumb in sight. Best part: it took 50 minutes to get here. I'm seriously tempted to ask my credit card company to reverse the charge.

Renaissance is totally great. I ordered some narly mashed potatoes and mozz sticks at 5:00 am. They didn't have the chicken orzo which is the best soup ever. I almost got the slaw but then decided to go a different route. Overall renaissance is great for my late night cravings.

This 24 hour restaurant is bigger than it looks on first glance. There are three rooms: the front with typical booths and counter, the middle room with tables, fireplace and enormous skylight, and the back room which is actually an outdoor "garden" with a removeable ceiling for nice weather. The service depends greatly on the mood of the staff, who are generally friendly if somewhat unprofessional and moody. On the other hand they will do their best to accomodate "special orders" and don't seem to mind if patrons linger over coffee. The food, too, varies in quality. For example, the "pan omelettes" are prepared in an omelette pan on the weekends (if you're lucky) and on the greasy grill the rest of the time. Mostly, though, the food is fresh and, if not inspired (it *is* a diner), is at least hearty. Portions are typically large. As is typical with many diners, they offer breakfast, lunch and dinner items at any time of the day, from a huge menu with almost too many choices. This is definitely a neighborhood place with lots of diverse regulars of all ages. It can be quite noisy at times. Things settle down in the evenings, and the diner seems to undergo frequent attempts at improving the atmosphere, including the occasional renovation. At night the back rooms have dimmed lighting and for awhile even boasted live, unobtrusive music.
