A great recommendation from our hotel concierge! very popular so expect a slight wait for a table. Waiters friendly and happy to accommodate special requests and oh - a definite visit for any Seinfeld fans!

Had the pancakes and eggs and my other half had bagel with creme cheese. Bagel was hard but it was OK. Pancakes, bacon and eggs were good, but nothing more. All in all a decent place where we ate our breakfast and thats it.

My wife and I went here 4 times for breakfast whilst on a recent trip to NYC and each time the service and food were excellent. So much to choose from!

Says it all really. If the locals come, then why wouldn't we? Breakfasts a few days here, and it was brilliant! Service spot on, food just brilliant, and lets be honest - needed when you're walking as much as you will do walking round NYC.

Came here twice for dinner. Whilst it's only a ten minute walk from Times Square it is quiet and reasonably priced. The service is excellent and food is delicious. The burgers were succulent and tasty. Curly fries were crispy and a generous portion of all!

Apparently Jerry Seinfeld wrote a lot of his scripts here, so the Westway has become rather popular. I had a couple of breakfasts here during a recent visit to NYC. Pretty standard diner fare, but tasty and at a reasonable price. I’m not sure I’d...More
