We had dinner at Gracie Mews Diner. The salad greens were wilted and the tomatoes mealy. The half roasted chicken was totally overcooked, tasteless, rubbery and definitely not prepared fresh for my meal. The vegetables were overcooked and tasteless, not to mention the baked potato which was black in color instead of white. The meal was totally awful as are... More

Not the cheapest restaurant, and the food frankly is not worth what they charge. I'd rather cook at home and do a much better job

The four of us have the perfect NYC diner experience. We had the corned beef on rye and they had the tuna salad and a BLT. We went with New Yorkers, were served by New Yorkers. Everything was ready in a New York minute. About 12.00 per sandwich. The dessert case looked perfect but we were too full. For an... More

We have been eating here and having food delivered for years! Excellent fresh fish! Great everything, really. A terrific value. Huge portions. One dish can be split and still have left overs. You cannot go wrong. The owners are terrific as is the staff.

Gracie Mews is our favorite breakfast place when we visit my sister and brother in the Upper East Side. It's a very good, neighborhood restaurant. They have a wide variety of dishes, all well-prepared. Eggs, omelettes, French toast & pancakes are all done to perfection. The coffee's good too. Prices are reasonable. The wait staff is really professional. Food is... More

Relatively standard New York city diner, bigger and brighter than most. Two large apartment buildings provide a very reliable clientele. Prompt and generally friendly service, but often with a bit of an edge. Good cleanliness including the men's room. Prices are average for the area. American cheese omelette ordered soft came back in six minutes, perfectly cooked. Side order of... More

This diner is a neighborhood gem! On the weekends you need to wait at least 20 minutes to be seated. I recommend the counter where you can interact with the servers..and see them in motion. ie filling internet and telephone orders while taking seated customer orders. Breakfast, brunch or dinner ALL the food is great. I use to go at... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
