We travel to NYC two-three times each year (at least) and each time we go- we eat many times at the Tick Tock! The staff members are so wonderful to us! They treat us like royalty. The food is always good and the service is grand. We are always greeted with warm smiles and friendly hello's -- and everyone always remembers us-- including our names. You'll love the Tick Tock, too!

I visit this diner two to three times a week. The meals overall are priced about the same as other similar restaurants, but man do they give you a lot. The food is almost always excellent. Once in a while the service will be a little slow, but all the waiters are friendly and the atmosphere is wonderful. Definitely stop by this restaurant if you're in the area

Only having a week to spend in New York, you have to make the most of your time. Staying only 4 streets away from the Tick Tock Diner, we ate there twice. The first night we'd flown in from the UK, extremely jetlagged, and decided to try out this diner. We were extremely impressed, though I fear the jetlag clouded our vision. Our waiter was a slightly older gentleman, very nice, very attentive, we left a generous tip. The food arrived quickly and no complaints what-so-ever. On our fourth night we went back to the Tick Tock. The place was virtually empty, we were seated immediately. However, it took almost 35 minutes for the waiter to serve us, it was only after asking the woman (you'll know the one we mean, the one who seats you) that we were given menus. Once ordered, the food took 45 minutes to arrive, we asked for a water refil 4 times - nothing. The food arrived - cold. We made an attempt at a complaint several times, though we were informed that we would have to deal with our own waiter. After eating as much as we could handle - we asked for the bill - EIGHT times, so after waiting almost an hour for the bill (i kid you not), it arrived - finally! However, it was illegible! It took another 20 minutes for 'our' waiter to explain exactly what it said. We received a muffled '$27.79...that's the food, and $8.62...and that's my tip' - the cheek of the boy! We paid exactly $27.79 and walked out. Would you have left a tip? I think not!

This was and myself and my partner's first visit to New York from the UK. We stayed at the New Yorker at went to the Tick Tock daily, especially for breakfast. We always found the staff pleasant and efficient. Breakfast was really good. Occasionally we had dinner and that was average but still the service was good. We were looking for what we thought to be typical Americal Diner and this was it. I would recommend it to anyone - especially for breakfast. Nice one...

I live at the New Yorker, and go to the Tick whenever I dont feel like cooking. The food is fairly good, about what you would expect from a twenty four hour diner. The best thing on the menu by far are the sweet potatoe fries. I could die for them... Service varies. It isn't always terrible, but it is never good. The wait staff will help help you when they get around to it, and dont expect them a moment sooner.

3 friends and I visited Tick Tock 5/28/06 and waited waited for service. I finally had to get our own menus. Our orders were finally taken after 20 minutes. The slice of blueberry pie was microscopic. We almost left because of that but they made it right. It was delicious. Beyond all of this...I loved the diner's feel.
