    We visited the original Carnegie Diner everytime we were in NYC. We are thrilled that the new one is opened and is amazing as the old one was! The tradition will continue every visit to NYC will include a meal at Carnegie Diner!

    Great for a quick bite before Carnegie Hall with an extensive menu and vegetarian and vegan-friendly options, but the quality of the food was just subpar. The roast chicken was extremely dry and the folks in my group did not find the burgers delicious. The service and its location, however, were the saving grace.

    Whenever we go to NYC, we eat breakfast at the Carnegie Diner. The food is excellent and the service is as well. Be sure to get reservations on Open Table during busy times of the year.

    Awful noisy tourist trap with typical but subpar diner fare. Food was dreadful—bread was of the packaged variety, dishes were cold and tasteless, and came out so fast, they clearly had been pre-made and sitting in the kitchen to distribute. Only redeeming features were good service and a convenient location. This place is obviously geared toward Times Square/midtown tourists who don’t know any better. Not for locals, foodies, or anyone who appreciates a good meal.

    This restaurant should not be on the OpenTable platform as they do not have any “reservations” you walk in and it is some guy with a pen and paper telling you “maybe” you get a table in 30 minutes. We walked out.

    We went twice the first day the food was good, however due to a language barrier between our waiter and I, he messed up our order multiple times. My husband sent his plate back 3 times and decide against getting a meal. The second day we went we had a waitress that spoke English. The food came out fast and hot but all of it was burnt.

    I was very disappointed. I ordered a burger medium rare and it was like a hockey puck. Fries were good and so was salad, so I’m rating the food two stars, otherwise it would be zero.
