The Ritz diner in livingston is a great place to eat. Breakfast is outstanding and most of the food is very good. Parking sometimes is hard to find.

The Ritz is an institution in Livingston. It is the quintessential diner. Huge menu. Everything you could ever want. Service is normally fast and you may feel rushed but just tell the waiter you want to take your time. No problem. They have a counter if you like. Bakery is famous. Huge take out business. Breakfast anytime. Burgers are great.... More

Many visits have confirmed that this somewhat rundown diner serves "excellent" food. The fish had been especially good. On this visit the fish was poorly prepared. One poor experience does not mean that we or you should not return. Hope this poor meal is not the beginning of a trend. I doubt that it is!

Stopped here for breakfast and boy was I surprised. The cinnamon raisin French toast was amazing and coffee was great! They were packed but the wait was very short. I would drive up there just for the breakfast!

I've been to the Ritz diner several times for dinner and have rarely been disappointed. This afternoon was no exception. At our table of seven, we were served excellent lasagna and gnocchi bolognese as well as very good ravioli, chicken parmigiana and broiled scrod. The mushroom barley soup was outstanding but the matzoh ball soup was a disappointment since the... More

Large menu, great bakery. My faves are the shrimp salad, pasta primavera, Marion salad, burgers. But that's just lunch and dinner. Breakfast is served all day. My only complaint is the coffee. It's really blah. But don't come for the coffee, try their consistently excellent food.

Very expensive! No real early bird specials. You cannot go there to sit & relax. They serve & move you out ASAP to turnover the table. I think people go there to see and be seen. The food is very high priced. Not a place on my list for repeat dining. I saw a family across from me get huge... More

Whether you want breakfast, lunch, dinner or something in between- everything on the menu is great. I would personally recommend the chicken burger deluxe with avocado and honey mustard. Its addictive! The wait staff are always very nice. Don't feel shy and make sure to get both the health salad and yummy baked goods that come before your meal (no... More

Fabulous fish: The complete dinners which come with both soup and salad are large enough for many couples to share. Avoid the hamburgers: Usually unappetizing both in size and preparation. Management has been informed and perhaps there will be improvements in the future..

After early morning church service, the friendly greetings upon arrival; the children enjoying the dessert display while waiting to be seated; the patience and attentiveness of waiter in serving family of 7 (which included 4 children); the fresh, tasty and filling portions -- all added to the ingredients for joyful Easter Sunday festivities!!
