Sorry but I've tried, but yesterday was the last time I'll try eating here. The food was cold, took forever for the order to arrive even though there were just 4 other tables filled. Instead of white toast ordered, they delivered wheat toast, and then took 10 minutes to correct the mistake and finally brought white toast barely warm, not toasted. Isn't that enough reason not to return? I think so.

Okay...okay, some (just a few) of the waiters are aloof and/or brain-dead (Helpful hint: the waitresses are so much better than the waiters). And if there is a problem, the managers take care of the situation right away. For a diner, I have never had a bad meal here and the portions are BIG like a meal should be at a nice, cozy joint like this. Do you want the best of everything? Go to Per Se and spend $500 for two. In this general area, Stargate is the best diner. P.S.- I have never had a problem with take-out.

I only give 5 stars for food to something which is new, different and excellent, so that's why the 4.5 for Stargate. It's great dinner food--not creative, but who would want it to be? The quality of the food and the prep are both excellent. And, as for great services, this is the kind of place where they fuss over senior citizens and people with "special" orders, polite and respectful. Go early and often!

Talk about an unpleasant dining experience. I ordered scrambled egg whites well done. The waiter trough me my eggs with american cheese on them. When I told him I had been given the wrong order, instead of apologizing he nastily snatched the plate away and gave me a snide look. Two minutes later he returned with uncooked runny egg whites, I again reminded him I had asked for them well done. Once again he did not apologize and grabbed the plate away with an angry face. Finally the order came back the way I had ordered. This time he basically threw the plate at me. We were his only table and the place was empty. There always empty basically except for once a week.

I've picked up take out and it's been very good. We ate there for the first time last night. The waitress was helpful in her recommendations and the food was, again, very good. It's a bit dark inside, but we'd definitely go back as the food was very good and reasonable.

Went there for brunch and ordered the Eggs Florentine. It had no flavor, no spice, no salt. It's like they put a block of frozen spinach in the microwave and plopped it on top of an english muffin. Just not tasty. The french toast my friend ordered wasn't much better - edible but not enjoyable. Wouldn't go back. On the plus side - roomy interior and it seemed family friendly.
