We ate here for our first breakfast and wasn't disappointed. On arrival into NY we saw the diner, as it had been recommended to us but they were queuing out of the door! That was in The evening, so we went for breakfast. It was lovely. I found it hard to choose so went for eggs and bacon. It was... More

Every time we have visitors we bring them here for breakfast. It is an "only in NYC" experience. This time was one of our best times because the manager got up and introduced the singers and explained that last year she lost 20 of her waitresses/waiters to Broadway and travelling productions. She also passed a bucket for donations to a... More

We had lunch here, very busy, great fun, great cocktail and the food was ok. The burgers looked great, there wasn't much on the menu for vegetarians but the mac n cheese was good. Our waitress was lovely and she had a fantastic singing voice. I would highly recommend the experience. Be prepared to queue as it is very popular.... More

The waiter singing was great, but food was extremely overpriced for an okay breakfast. Coffee was less than desirable. Service was slow.

A tourist restaurant that not only gives good food, but also good entertainment. This restaurant gives you the possibility to see the next big Broadway star. The singing and patron participation is a must-see when in New York.

Ok so first the good news...talented kids sing very well and we enjoyed the "show". Now the bad news.... food stinks and is over priced so my advice to you... go, it's a cool thing to do but just order a shake and call it a day!

I was told food cheep but good entertainment great, food was not cheep but the rest was correct. The staff sing in the hope to be spotted for a part in a show and the diner has lost 26 staff in the last two years they are so good. They pass a bucket around for tips to pay for the... More

The place is very busy and you may have queue to get in. Recommend to go early, breakfast/early lunch and the lines might be zero. The singing staff is good and enjoyable. Food is decent and you have to pay some premium compared to other diners. Still worth a visit just because of the atmosphere!

We would do this again. Constant want to be broadway stars performing show tunes and your favorite songs. The whole crowd gets in to it. Go off hours as their are no reservations and the line gets long. The food is good but not like going to tavern on the green. This is a must do while in NYC!!!

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.
