    Great place for STRONG frozen drinks! Elvis' Revenge has to be one of the greatest things on the menu. Friendly staff and great service. WILL BE BACK SOON

    Homemade waffles are great! But they are served with spicy syrup, so don't pour all the stuff over the plate unless you like a little chili on your breakfast! ;)

    Lunch is surprisingly quiet and the food is great at reasonable prices. Don't fear the late night crowds. Vynl is a sure bet for a midday meal.

    The sirloin stir fry is great! Some gristle in the beef but other than that everything was very well cooked and delicious. The Justin Cucumberlake was okay, I would try some of the other cocktails.

    We absolutely adore this campy and upscale diner. Start with a Kung Fu Fighting and followed by the Buttermilk Fried Chicken. Then visit Dolly in the bathroom!

    Everything is so tasty, Sliders Rellenos with Crispy poblano cheese is damn good, will definitely come back just for those sliders

    I was so impressed. The brunch was amazing, service was excellent and vibes were on point. I had the eggs in purgatory and it was AMAZING.

    We had the Mac n cheese, sliders rellenos and the brownie for dessert, everything was really good. The sliders win the first place though! Oh, the service was great too!

    Steak & eggs was awesome. I'd order it just for the steak it was so tender. And when you order fruit it's good fruit (I got kiwi, papaya, mango), not the filler BS. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Great spot to unwind. Tiffany, Robert and Ellie always take great care of you at the bar! Be careful with the Carlos Santana. More than 2 and you'll probably be sloppy.

    Chicken chilaquiles at brunch were awesome and they know how to do proper scrambled eggs 🍴👍. Ice coffee refills were $1.

    You must visit all the bathrooms. each one has a celebrity theme. A must see! The servers are always fun and attentive. Great fashionable unpretentious crowd. Get a margarita. They make them strong an

    Great food, but the service is a little shotty. Visited twice, first time service was amazing. Had the Grilled Cheese, which was delicious! Second time, waitress was horrible, but again great food.

    They play a lot of good pop songs. I just really enjoyed the Beyoncé-ness of the place. The fries are a must! The curry was also amazing.

    Great if you need late food post-show (or are heading to the HK clubs). A little pricey, but big meals that have flavour. Frozen red wine cocktail is fun.

    Pad Thai is excellent. As well as the Mac & cheese. Fun, delicious drinks. Very loud. Crowded. Impossible hand dryer in the bathroom. Fun night out!

    Ask for bacon or a poached egg on the truffle Mac and cheese!! It's not on the menu, but they still make it and it will change your life.

    Beyoncé-themed ladies restroom is THE BEST. Beyoncé music blaring, Beyoncé decor complete with a Beyoncé Barbie doll.

    Whether you want something healthy or you want to really "chow down," this is the best place to go. Ask about their happy hour!!!

    The cocktails at Vynl will knock you off your feet. Not only are the delicious but they are incredibly strong. You've been warned.

    The disco fries were a mouthgasm and the grilled cheese was a perfect hangover recovery cure. Service wasn't anything to write home about but I'll still be a repeat customer.

    Best damn waffles I've had. My fromosa (frozen mimosa) tastes more like a frozen tequila, but it was still great.

    Definitely a fun place. Lots of options for vegetarians. Little loud for my taste though. Hard to have a conversation, especially when sat at a corner table underneath a speaker.

    Silly assed happy hour rules. If I'm spending the extra money to sit down and order food where I would probably drink more, you can't have happy hour prices. So instead I'll have free water.

    There is nothing not to love about Vynl. Reasonably priced, delicious food, great service. It's a fun little treasure. Lots of Broadway celebs in and out around showtime.

    New menu is extremely disappointing. They moved away from their comfort food and quality ingredients and is now trying too hard to be trendy with "plates to share." sad day

    Drink lots of liquids then check out one of the four rock n roll themed restrooms. You won't want to come out. Can they just serve drinks in there?

    Trying to decipher the business model. No happy hour drinks if you eat in the food section. Drink specials end so early you can't move to the back to order food. They almost want you to not order food

    Модный дайнер на углу с азиатской кухней, уютным вечерним интерьером и обзором. Мой выбор - пад тай и маргарита (best ever). Впрочем вкусно все. Приятный персонал. Добротные порции. Гей-френдли.
