My favorite show of all time so this place was a MUST SEE. I knew the inside was going to be different so that was ok. The food was actually delicious and the service was wonderful! I would have loved to see at night when the sign is lit up!!! Love for Seinfeld decor hanging all over. Very neat!

We had just dropped our daughter off at college and stopped by this place on the way back to our hotel. It's small inside and we had to wait about five minutes for a booth to open up. The staff was amazing - very efficient, the prices were reasonable and the diner food was just what was needed! My husband and I split a HUGE bagel with cream cheese, along with a side of crispy bacon and a stack of pancakes...yes, it was a carb filled meal, but it didn't disappoint! I'm sure once school is in session this place can be packed, but on a random day in August before the dorms of Columbia are full, we experienced great food & friendly service! Also, they make a great cup of diner coffee!

The outside of this diner is the photo shot used throughout the Seinfeld series. Inside is a quaint NYC Diner. I was alone so I chose to eat at the counter. Late at night there were a lot of people outside taking photo ops and several inside. Waiter at the counter was attentive and quick. Food was prepared as requested, burger and fries. Parking in the area can be hard with Columbia University, Housing and a local hospital. If you are visiting NYC I recommend the subway or a taxi. The food was very good. An enjoyable experience.

Pretty good food. Average prices. Breakfast served 24 hours. A few references to the TV Show that made it famous, and a wall of interesting pictures.

Ok, I'll admit...Stopped in because I'm a HUGE Seinfeld fan visiting from out of town, but what I discovered was a friendly staff, decent prices & a Great oasis on a Hot August day. Our water glasses were always kept Full & Cold
Ice cream was a Dee-Lishous treat in the Hot NYC Sun ☀️
