Went for Passover dinner and had the unfortunate view of the office and kitchen, on the way to the restroom. Luckily I did not become ill after eating this low quality, overpriced food. Never again - for Passover or any other meal.

Been going here for years, they spruced up the place a while back and raised the prices - now they are competing with Gramercy Bagel and they just
aren't as good. Usual diner fare but sometimes the service is horrible - Will go back when the line is too long at Gramercy

If the principal criteria of your dining experience is that you did not get sick from the meal, then this place is probably fine. If anything else, then this place is a mess.

During our breakfast we encountered all kinds of nasty experiences. When we got there, the hostess was in a shouting match with a group of handicapped seniors about not wanting to seat them until the entire party arrived. This despite the fact that 6 of the 8 people had arrived, and 4 of the 6 already there; visibly had trouble standing. AND, you can't make this up, the restaurant was only HALF full!!!

We should have taken a hint right there, but we were really hungry and an acquaintance recommended the place for its food and value.

Okay - On to the disastrous meal.

Our waiter seemed to love pouring boiling hot coffee at a reckless rate into the hand held cups to the tip top, even when one of us were holding the cup, seemingly just for the sport of it! Want more? When we received our food, 2 of the 8 orders were incorrect, and when we mentioned this, the waiter just said; "eat it anyway, I won't charge you extra"!!!! This occurred even after we explained that one of the people was a vegetarian and didn't want the bacon on her plate at any cost. He shrugged and walked away. When we asked again 5 minutes later, he took her plate and didn't bring anything back. When we asked a 3rd time 5 minutes later, he brought back the same plate, with the bacon grease obviously visible on the plate and now slopped in with the toast. We are not making this up!

Want even more? Several folks at the table ordered bagels. When served, they all came in one basket, all variations, some toasted, some not, some garlic, some plain, all meshed together in a soggy mess! We were told to pass the basket around and pick them out, that is the way they serve them!

When we went to pay, we were told Credit Cards were not accepted, even though, right there pasted to the cash register, were all the stickers and decals of the major credit cards they supposedly accepted! We asked why and the answer was, because "we had a special". None of us ordered anything that had "special" indicated on the menu, so what that means, we'll never know. But they absolutely refused anything but cash; even indicating that there was an ATM nearby.

But we didn't get sick.
