The Flame Restaurant
Posted by Thomas on 06/15/2007
I am a fan of diners and coffee shops in the city and this is a favorite of mine. The wait staff is courteous and welcoming. The service is prompt and accomodating. The restaurant is clean and well lit. The selections are varied enough to suit any member of the family, well prepared, and the portions are generous. The prices are extremely reasonable. I love the stuffed green peppers and the chicken pot pie (when they have it) is to die for. Ask the waiter for a recommendation for the day and you won't be disappointed. What's not to love about this place?

in 2006 i holiday for the 1st time in New York and found this lovely diner and eat there twice a day for a week and will be going back this April to enjoy the food again. The eggs benedict was one of the best i had ever had and the price was not over the top and it a great place to people watch

I go to the Flame at least twice a week, usually for breakfast or lunch. Excellent fast service, quick coffee refills, delicious breakfasts (omelettes, ham and eggs, pancakes). The chicken salad sandwich is surprisingly good and if you feel like eating a bit unhealthy then try the cheeseburger club. This place is always open and, as such, is a great option after a long night out. I may be 5-10 lbs. heavier because of them but it's worth it.

I had the Lamb Orzo (or something like that) and it was delightful! Service was attentive and you get to sit among the regulars and get a feel for the "hood"

Really good breakfasts and Burgers . But be warned , the delivery service is inconsistent - consistently getting the order wrong and it is not exactly timely. I must admit that the service in Diner is very friendly .

Been eating here weekdays for 25 years -- and my workday doesn't get off on the right foot unless I do! The staff are the friendliest; the food and service is terrific. You don't have to be a long-time customer to have the staff know how you want your eggs, or how you take your coffee. Salads are terrific and very popular, as are the ever-changing specials. No complaints about being bored with the menu! Speak with the managers about having your party catered. Always dependable, courteous and friendly service. What's not to like.

My daughter and I were in New York in July. We wanted to eat at a different "breakfast special" every day, but after the first time in The Flame we came back every day of the week. Friendly, quick, good and fresh food, (coffee should be a little stronger) we enjoyed every breakfast. Across the street from the Hudson hotel, we recommend it to everybody. (we even made pictures of mr. sotirios and his colleagues. When we go back to New York, I think we will have breakfast at the Flame again.
