    It's fine. A typical diner that gets press because of Seinfeld.

    Broadway shakes: only real reason to come here

    Typical all-American diner near Columbia University. Also the site of Monk's Dinner in Seinfeld and only 1 stop north from the hostel on the Upper West Side (or a 10-minute walk).

    Make sure you wipe utensils and order and extra drink with meal or you'll get a baby drink.Despite being sent to back of restaurant to dirty table by lady at the front, the food and server were great

  • Gerard V.

    Ingrid is hands down the best server. Everything is made with love that's why everything tastes so good...

    I took a friend from New Mexico to Tom's Restaurant and she was super-excited, being a Seinfield fan and all!!! We took a pic here at 3:00am!!! I love having breakfast at Tom's!!!

    It may only have used its exterior in Seinfeld, but it's still iconic for anyone who loves the show.

    Sam H · August 7
  • Charley T.

    I love this place but be ready to eat and run, not much of a leisurely hang around vibe.

    Excellent service

    Jerry Seinfeld' restaurant!

    Classic diner fare. Also the iconic Seinfeld facade.

    Michael T · July 22
  • Gerard V.

    Ingrid the server was probably the sweetest and nicest server i ever met. As long as you do it with love

  • Katie W.

    Seinfeld was NOT filmed inside here: only the outside was used on the show. There is a signed poster inside. Like most diners, cash only, but handy in that they actually have an ATM.

  • Paul

    Customer service here is terrible. Also the diner didn't look anything like it does in Seinfeld.

    Paul · June 7
  • Carla M.

    Milkshakes and malted milk both are SO good, consistently. My favorite non-spiked milkshake in the neighborhood.

    Share a milkshake. They are really big.

    It's the restaurant that features in every Seinfeld episode. Take a picture of the place, but don't go in. Some of their waiters can't even speak English. Food is average. It's not worth it.

    I strictly went here for "Seinfeld". The service is incredibly fast and I ordered Tom's "famous" shishkabob which was sub par. Cool diner-like atmosphere but I would say just get your pic and leave.

    Can't go wrong with any breakfast foods

    This place is famous for the sitcom "Seindfield". The staff is friendly. Pumkin soup is awesome!

    You know it from Seinfeld

    great service

    Most people come here to visit the shrine to Seinfeld, but they stay because of the milkshakes and the good diner food

    JP Park · November 29, 2014
  • Kristian T.

    Bread and scrambled eggs. Bathroom is pretty full of drawings, though :)

    My go-to restaurant for drunk food. Amazing milkshakes and breakfast food. Don't get seafood though, that's not their specialty.

    Meric Atesalp · November 15, 2014
  • Jonathon O.

    Had the soup, chicken fingers, and turkey triple decker. Good food!

    Jonathon Olson · October 30, 2014
  • Ashley P.

    When you ask for a double burger, it is not 2 patties as you'd suspect, it's actually 2 glorious whole burgers. So good and worth it.

  • ImSo_Brooklyn

    2 👍👍 up! I went strictly because of the obvious, Seinfeld. And I ended up loving it! The server was great, was great. Oreo shake is awesome. Chocolate pancakes too! Outside seating available.

    ImSo_Brooklyn · September 15, 2014
  • Jins

    Get the Ruben sandwich for $10. Comes with fries and he sandwich is massive. Easily feeds two people. Also get the chocolate milkshake

    This is the restaurant that's Seinfeld filmed or his episodes in

    Fish and Chips, service is quick, but not fast food quick. Great conversational environment.

    Paul Condarcuri · August 12, 2014
  • Paul C.

    Fish and Chips. Great value, not to slow, very clean. Great place to have a conversation or date.

  • Kristine A.

    Did not order the big salad #Seinfeld

    Kristine Alison · August 1, 2014
  • Aleksei K.

    Very tasty homemade soups

    Aleksei Kachanov · July 27, 2014
  • Jody W.

    Though the facade is only featured on Seinfeld, I felt like I walked right onto set; waitress spent the entire hour+ eating(complete with ice cream @8 AM?) and picking pimples off her face. WWGD?

  •  ℋumorous

    They never filmed Seinfeld here, just the exterior. Jerry Seinfeld & Jason Alexander did film an episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee as their famous characters in season 3 "The Over-Cheer" ☺

    Pancakes were tasty.

    Great late night study spot in the summer when Butler Library isn't open 24/7. Free WiFi from campus and bottomless coffee.

    Thomas Ngo · June 20, 2014
  • Peter F.

    Food is crappy. Have a milk shake and/or fries. Then eat dinner next door at Dig Inn.

    Peter Foreman · June 7, 2014

    An icon. Great food. Doesn't take cards :(

    Dave Allen Grady · May 20, 2014

    Tasty food. Great atmosphere. Cash only so come prepared.

    Monk's Café in Seinfeld ... Broiled Salmon is my favorite here. Otw Deluxe burger or hot pastrami sandwich r a good choice for quick meal between classes.
