This place is overrated. I was so excited to try it and was so disappointed when I walked out.

The food was bland, greasy and overpriced. It was cheap and I was still disappointed that I wasted money.

If you want good food from an old fashioned diner, go to Ruby's Diner. Learn from my mistake, pass this one up.

Pros: Fun Vintage Ambience

Cons: Menu Items were greasy and lacking flavor

.

This place is open 24 hours which is awesome, however the food is greasy and high priced. The service is sometimes great and sometimes horrible, no in between really. Not worth a drive but if you're in the area already not to bad.

i really enjoy the ambiance of studio diner. it is open late too. the burgers are good, but the food is a little pricier than normal for a "diner" type. service can be a little slow too

If you work in the area after closing time for the rest of the normal world, this is a good change of pace from the taco shops and fast food joints open all night. It is on the pricy side but some plates are worth it and some are not. The steak sandwich isnt so great, but the montecristo is more than worth the drive and price. Normally very busy on weekends after the bars all close down, so call in advance.

I have driven past this place for a the last few years in the day time while working. One night my wife and I saw it on Diners Drive in's and Dives. We took the family to give it a try. I ordered the fish and chips. Outstanding!!! very large , and well cooked. My wife had the club sandwich and kids all ate breakfast. Everyone left full and happy. I find that all diner food in southern California has become over priced. For a family of four expect to drop $50.00. But also expect to leave very full and happy.

Pros: Specialties , Open 24 hours

Cons: none

After seeing this place reviewed on "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," my wife and I thought we'd go check this place out. I'm a huge breakfast fan, and the idea of a place that serves breakfast 24/7 is always appealing to me. Parking was kind of strange, as they had a small lot, with most cars parked on the street, though it didn't seem to be difficult to find a spot. We got in and were seated in about 10 minutes. They had immediate seating at the counter available, but we opted to wait for a table. Looking over the menu, they seemed to have a pretty eclectic mix of food. The sandwiches and some of the seafood looked good, but I was craving breakfast. I ordered the country fried steak and eggs, and my wife ordered the crab cakes benedict. When we received our food (after a bit of a wait), we were not that impressed. Certainly not bad food, but then again nothing to write home about. The portions were a decent size, but for the price, I probably could have gone some where closer to my house for a better deal. My wife and I pondered if we had gotten some of their "specialties" would we have felt different. We may never know. Overall, I would say if you're not in the area, or it's not 3am, you would probably be better served going some where else.

Pros: 24 hours!

Cons: Pretty average food, strange parking

Went on a rainy Sat. night and was really looking forward to a 40's / 50's diner experience. Service was very slow. Food was mediocre at best, and way overpriced for what I had. Hot fudge cake was overcooked (in microwave). Save your $ and have a much better experience. Go to Bob's Big Boy.

Cool...I dig the New England Clam Chowder!!
The Real Deal!

Great when the bars close down.
Saw a bunch of Chargers Players after a late night practice session.

They accept all credit cards which is nice.

Wow!! What a Cool Spot!! Studio Diner is right next to a TV/Movie Studio
and it serves breakfast 24 hours a day seven days a week.

I thought it was cool because it's a tricked out East Coast American Diner
transplanted to San Diego!
When I was there the Food Network's Guy Fieri was filming an episode
of his show called "Diners, Drive Inn's & Dives"

I really liked the Lobster Roll and the New England Clam Chowder.
My sister liked the "SamSon Steak" an AWESOME thin sliced prime rib sandwich with spinach, sprouts and garlic with mozzeralla on a french roll!
