Had a american pancake breakfast. Food came (very) quick, and it was really good. The service was also good.

Regular diner food with quick and pleasant service. The diner is a bit outdated but clean. Good coffee.

We last visited Murray Hill Diner while in NYC about a year ago, and were looking forward to going back. This is very much a neighborhood spot, sweet and comfortable. The diner is clean, and the menu has a lot of variety. Food is good and hot, and delivered very quickly, and service is efficient. Bacon and egg type breakfasts... More

Typical diner atmosphere. A little loud, eat at the bar, table or booth and receive great service - they get check marks on all of these. Great value.

One of the great things about New York is the ability to stumble upon a random diner or deli whenever you need to rest and eat. The Murray Hill Diner is the perfect example of that. It's not particularly pretty, but it's nice enough. It's clean and the food is great. It's comfortable enough that you never feel that rushed.... More

Came here today and had breakfast. They have excellent breakfast options and offer juice with the breakfast options. I'm a repeat customer, so in my estimation this is a good choice for anyone in the lower 30s

Had a great breakfast here on both occasions we visited during our last stay in New York City as a family of 4. Our Hotel was nearby on Lexington and this diner is conveniently located close to the local Subway stop for the 6 train. Service fast as you would expect and I had the largest pancakes from any diner... More

My family and I stayed in Murray Hill recently and ended up having lunch here one day that was so good, we went back for breakfast the next day! The menu has everything you could imagine so we all got something we wanted. The service was great. Food delicious, and it didn't break the bank, which is a treat to... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
