    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!! :(

    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.

    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.

    Cheesecake was exceptional and not real heavy in your stomach like some cheesecakes. Our meals were outstanding too. Superb service!

    Helpful Tip: STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE. Overpriced. Bad service. You can find better and more affordable diners a few blocks from here. STAY AWAY.

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

    Terrible service. Our waiter never even told us his name. Very stand off ish. Like we were annoying him. Food was eh and very over priced!!

    I thought the strawberry cheesecake was good. Then again, I'm from California, so maybe I don't know what I'm talking about :-)

    TERRIBLE. Run away as fast as you can. Do not get confused by crowds as they will have a voucher for junk meal free.

    Good Cheesecake, but if you never had real NY Cheesecake then prepare yourself because its quite different...

    Avoid this place, the service is ridiculous. We wanted cheese on the side for french fries and the give us cheese slices! WTF??

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

    Lindy's is on the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade path! Tune in and catch the Lewis the Duck "On the Roll Again" parade float presented by Homewood Suites by Hilton.

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

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

    Wow, this place is bad. Food is very over priced and quality was 'just okay'. Service was quite friendly though.

    Nearly $20 for a mediocre stack of pancakes??? Should have went to cafe metro down the block. Will not be going back.

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

    Terribly overpriced food, but Maureen (one of the waitresses) it's such a sweetheart that it's worth it!

    Not tasty and very expensive food. Famous NY cheesecake is not something extraordinary. Service is not good

    For now on I will always read the tips first! Food is okay but not good, over priced and bad service.
  • 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?

    Awful service. And I try to be patient and understanding because I have worked in the food industry. Ridiculous!

    Avoid this place unless you like to be overcharged for food that is decent and service that is horrible.

    Major Tourist trap. Overpriced $$ and not very clean or well maintained. We left before odering.

    Crazy expensive...and I'm not sure why the brownie cheesecake is called "brownie". See any brownies?!

    Dirty dishes, slow service. And they have the nerve to be overpriced for what they give you.

    To add to the totally overpriced food, we just had a cockroach run across our table!! Don't come here.

    Don't get the grilled chicken. It appears to have been cooked in a microwave, not grilled. BAD.

    The food is way too expensive, but we got our food in less than 15 minutes. Can't complain about the service.
