The Square Diner

I was there for few times, the food was really good, but the service is really poor!

I work near by and have ordered delivery but never been to the place. The food is typical diner food. The owner/manager was super nice but the service otherwise was just awful. I cannot emphasize enough how awful it was. When it came time to pay they we put the bill on the edge of the table for a few minutes before we flagged someone over, they nastily replied "no credit cards". The only tiny little sign anywhere was on the register, no where on the menu, no signs on the door, not one server mentioned it to us. We were told to use the ATM outside, on the street (it was raining) and the machine charged $2.50 for use, plus my bank charges. I'm just annoyed with the experience! I might return but why if there are other places around with better food better service for the same prices.

The Square Diner is exactly what I was looking for on Juror Duty lunch break. The fast pace and classic diner feel is as visible here then any other diner I've been to. With solid food and real personality, this is a much try.

One of the only remaining joints in town that gives a hint of what Tribeca used to be before the yuppies and glitterazzi moved in. Unfortunately the new crowd has decided the place is quaint and "classy" enough to justify solid occupation through most major meal hours (who cares if the kids aren't content with the modest space-- if their parents have to deal with the constant squirming and shouting then so do we). It's often understaffed, and the stress shows, though in the quiet hours most of the staff reveal themselves to be full of character. Shame it gets buried by demands that would be far more welcome at establishments like the posh, nearby "Pecán". Square Diner is one of those spots that you wish would remain hidden, partly out of nostalgia and partly out of protectiveness. So, for the new residents of the Triangle Below Canal Street, I say this: It's not just an alternative to Bubby's when that ridiculous line spills over into the street. It does NOT accept credit cards (though there's an ATM outside). Yes, it's family friendly in that they are nice enough to allow you to bring the young ones-- don't abuse that privilege. Paying an egregious amount of money for your little slice of heaven does not mean you should be treated like royalty (welcome to the real world).

Ordered lunch for delivery today, food came pretty fast but that's it. The advocardo burger was one of the worst burger I've had in a long long time. It was stiff, yes, stiff like a board, dry and have no taste at all. Also ordered the pastrimi sandwich and it is very small, 1/10th the meat compare to Katz and it was almost $9. Not worth the money.

Hamburger burnt to a crisp - Soggy and overly salty fries - $8.75. Food was made quickly, but poorly. The only reason this place is still around: Socrates closed.
