“Average Diner Food”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Not much to really say about this place. I think it gets most of it's crowd based on it's relationship with the movie in which the diner was shown in. The food was ok, but if you are into checking out spots that's popular due to their movie relationship, you should check it out. I don't think you will be disappointed with the food, but I don't think you will be blown away by it either. So go for what you know.

“Average, but pricey”
Reviewed 12 November 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

The Moonstruck Diner in my neighborhood (Chelsea) has been changed to the Rail Line Diner ... not sure if it's the same people or the diner was sold to another company. The staff seems to be the same but the prices seem to be a bit more. It could just be me. It's an average diner w/ average diner food. Nothing to really rave about. The newly decorated space is nice, clean and bright. However, if I saw this diner in a line-up or other 'so-so' diners, I wouldn't be able to really pick it out. That being said, the service is always good. The food is decent and comes out quickly. The staff is always really nice and especially to my little boy when he comes with.

“What you would expect from a diner”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

This place is what you would expect from a diner in New York City. Nothing to write home about but nothing bad to say. This place is good to find good diner food at decent prices (for NYC). They have a good breakfast!

“Standard Diner Food...”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Decent diner food, you're not going to get anything out of the ordinary here but if you want a generous portion of something to fill you on a slight budget you can't go wrong coming here.

“stle bustle”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

Hidden amongst the NYC hustle bustle is the place I met my husband in 1993 - Moonstruck Diner, which is still here! Chelsea is my favorite neighborhood in NYC. Chelsea offers beautiful tree lined streets, smiling people and great little shops and restaurants. This place feels like a neighborhood even own with some big name chains on the corners. Very diverse people live here in harmony.

And Moonstruck is open 24/7 for some of the best food in town and a wide array of foods.

Although our best friend is no longer with us in this world, Costa Thomas's spirit lives in Moonstruck! A must go!!!
