    Yes, the price might be higher than what you're used to at home but this is a Midtown tourist spot. Our service was excellent and the food was good. I would def come back next time I'm in town!

    A little expensive but the service was exceptional. Our waiter was personable and friendly and funny. I had an open faced roast turkey with mashed potatoes and fresh veggies and it was outstanding.

    Sit by the window and order the Tom Allen. Great breakfast and coffee. Pricey but you are paying for the location and history of the restaurant.

    Have a slice of cheesecake and get the heck out. Made the mistake of having a full meal here and was sorry for it. My wife spent the evening ill. Had fun picking bones out of my turkey sandwich.

    What type of prices were you expecting in a tourist trap? Food is decent and breakfast all day. That's all I need to be happy :-) Pumpernickle bread is amazing!

    Cheesecake was exceptional and not real heavy in your stomach like some cheesecakes. Our meals were outstanding too. Superb service!
  • Catherine v.
    I thought the strawberry cheesecake was good. Then again, I'm from California, so maybe I don't know what I'm talking about :-)

    It was great, a bit overpriced but worth it. I don't understand why the other reviews are so bad I enjoyed it.

    Seated right away, and tasty hot matzo ball soup served fast. Servers seem friendly. Yes, kind of pricy.

    Really expensive. $6 for a bagel with cream cheese. Cheesecake is good but Junior's is the best.

    fish sandwich is so-so. Coleslaw was the highlight with the extra crispy fries pulling a close second.

    Definitely pricy, but worth walking in to. And, like the other tips left here, the service is poor.

    Most over priced diner in America. $25 for corned beef hash and eggs? It was good, but no food is that good.

    Awful service; waiter sat at bar most of the time. Should have read tips before. Bad Food; hard home fries and apples in blueberry pancakes. Overpriced! Had to look at this cart in front of place.

    Very good food. Thought the service was just fine!
  • MafiaHairdresser J.
    I'm so surprised that they have so many bad comments on service and yet, when we walked in, we got an indifferent greeting. Don't they read this stuff?

    Cheesecake is good. Decaf coffee was cold and they didn't want to make a new pot. Water tasted awful. Server we had wasn't the best.

    Service is really bad and food it not good and overpriced even for New York. Dunkin Donuts has a way better chicken salad sandwich for a third of the price.

    Avoid this place like the plague. Don't fall for the seeming exterior authenticity of this place. Prices are exorbitant, service is poor and food is average. It's a tourist trap.

    cheesecake is definitely overrated. Sara Lee makes a better NY cheesecake, and that says a lot. Service is horrible too - server had a really bad attitude. Waste of money!! :(

    We had good service and good food. Overpriced yes, but it was not awful like the other tips
