We were in NYC as a family of 4 and ate here 3 times during our stay. The portions were big and we were not disappointed with the quality of the food. The menu is extensive so lots to choose from!!! Nice pleasant place .

Because of our good experience with Murray Hill Diner during previous visits, we wanted to give it another try. Breakfast on 11/17/16 was not good. Fried potatoes were greasy and my over easy eggs were medium. Coffee was awful; in fact, we went afterwards to a Pret A Manger to get good organic coffee so we could finish the morning... More

We stumbled across it one morning and as it was packed we thought it must be ok! Even better than we thought! Great breakfast menu backed by excellent service. Coffee,tea and water appeared quickly as did the food. Delicious and hot! More importantly Great Value for NYC! We will return!

We ate here every day during our recent trip and you could have had a different breakfast each day. The menu is extensive and reasonably priced and it used by lots and lots of locals, including a certain Mr Josh Groban. The service was always quick and you never waited for a seat, food or constant refills of coffee and... More

The food was good, the portions ample and reasonably priced for NYC. The waitress was lovely and the food was served promptly. The diner itself was cheerful and clean. I will go there again when I am in the area.

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.
