My boyfriend and I frequent City Diner for their 24/7 breakfasts. We are fans of their eggs and bacon: I've never had them overcook my eggs and the bacon is always crispy. Their pancakes, waffles and french toast are also really good. Their burgers are really big and cooked to order. The fries are thick , crispy golden steak fries. One of my favorite menu items, though, is their milkshake. They are made with Haagen-Dazs and are really thick and creamy. \r\n\r\nI wouldn't go as far as saying we've had poor service or that the servers are rude; our water glasses get refilled and they check on us to make sure we have everything we need. Their portions are generous. Overall, this is a diner, so don't expect white tablecloth, Michelin star dining, but what a diner is supposed to do, City Diner does very well.

Pros: big portions, proximity to my house :)

Cons: can get crowded

I am so surprised that some people were not satisfied with the service and the food at this place! I live right near here and this was actually the first place I ate when I moved here. I have never had a bad meal here and I have never had a problem with the service- and I come here all the time (I eat here, I pick up food here, I have it delivered). Sunday brunch time gets very, very crowded... but this is understandable... the challah french toast, pancakes, waffles (esp. the multigrain waffle! and tutti frutti), bagel and lox platter are all amazing. I mean it's a diner so don't come here with zagat expectations, but it fills the need. I was recently at a diner in midtown and was shocked when I was told that I couldn't order pancakes after 11. City diner has everything you could want at a diner, 24/7. I don't know what I would do without this place.

Its a Diner. Open late, quick food, you can sit at the counter, booth or table. Clean. Little pricer when turned into City, but after a Yankee game, tastes delicious, expecially after a win. Good service. Fast delivery.

Complete tourist trap and why not...it looks respectable, has the appearance of a city diner, and christ its called ""City Diner"" so this is what the typical City diner is right.?...wrong.\r\n\r\nThe food is mediocre and when you factor in the price (which is approximately 3 times more than other places that do it better)...this place is a complete stinker.\r\n\r\nThe service was completely awful...I sat at the counter. The server would not even give me a spoon to sitr my coffee. I had to ask the hostess for my check, because the 3 times I asked the server got me nowhere.\r\n\r\nDo yourself a favor and stay away or own up to what you are...a tourist living in ny.

Pros: It is called City Diner

Cons: mediocre food, terrible service, and high pricing

The service the first time I went was great. It was disappointing that on my second visit, the service was not consistent. I'd defnitely suggest going to City Diner if you're in the area and looking for a quick meal. The ambience is nice, with a real diner feel to the place, and the menu is quite extensive. The squash soup was definitely worth another go. The pasta was pretty good, I had linguine and spaghetti.

We live a few blocks from this diner and have eaten there several times, the food is big, good-enough Diner Food at a decent price. Every time we've had delivery from them, though, the bill is never right, they charge $1-5 more than the menu prices. When we complained they said there was a $.75 ""plate fee"" which isn't on the menu, but we had only ordered 2 meals and they overcharged us by $3.00. The food's good, delivery is quick, but CHECK YOUR BILL!

Cons: Overcharged a few too many times on deliveries

On the bright side, our server was polite and friendly, definitely the best aspect of the establishment. From the street, where we were weary of walking, the Diner looked like just what we wanted-- clean, air-conditioned, spacious. We ordered a turkey burger and a turkey sandwich. Both were bland and undistinguished. It didn't seem worth the money or the calories. It might be good when you're desperate at 3 AM, but for lunch or dinner you can do better.

The menu is extensive, there's a large selection of breakfast, lunch, dinner and desert. The service was fast and friendly and the place was quiet with a definite mix crowd. Definitely a good place if your looking for a late night meal with a date, friends or family.

My partner and I are in the city to apartment-sit on the UWS 3-4 times/year. We end up at City Diner most nights 3AMish. With 30+ visits in last 4 years we've never been treated badly, never been rushed, never been dissapointed. Food is always generous, well-cooked, and satisfies that 3AM comfort food craving. The big burgers are soul-satifying, Buffulo Burger is almost healthy. Club sandwich is great. Tuna/chicken salad, good. Egg salad? Wonderful--one of the few places I order it. Soups are homemade and good. The fries are too good not to eat, unfortunately.\n\nAmibience-wise, it's brightly-lit and deco. Cleaner than your avg NY diner. Great people watching at lunch and late night--short story fodder for writers. Only annoyance is the ocassional noisy gathering of tragically hip UWS 20-somethings. A few order food, the rest just coffee, or nothing--even so, they're largely tolerated by management.

the last two times i've been to city diner, the staff has been inexcusably rude. Once, on a weekday morning (restaurant virtually empty) I asked to be seated at a table rather than a booth. The snotty hostess rolled her eyes and said ""Noooooo"" like I was stupid. The next time I went, with a couple of friends, we were pushed out 15 minutes after our food arrived. They even took away my friend's salad before she was done! We had been there for literally less than 30 minutes, and though the busboys apologized profusely, they had been obviously told to rush us out...it was embarassing. I will never go there again, let alone take anyone there. Shame on you, City Diner.

City Diner has come through for me in a drunken clutch time after time. They're a 24hour diner that delivers! I've only had their Burger Deluxe delivered, but the delivery guys are timely, and the food delicious and laden with fat (trust me; this is a GOOD thing at 4am). I haven't actually been to the diner, and I actually don't intend to. But the delivery is impeccable. Enjoy!
