We stopped by this place after a long night of walking because of the yummy looking cheesecake in the window. We sat at the bar area because we were only ordering dessert. The man looked busy and annoyed that we were there. He hardly talked to us to take our order, but the cheesecake was good.

Stopped in for lunch while in the city. Good menu, reasonable prices. Salad bowls where huge and delicious, with the Greek and crispy chicken salads enjoyed. One in our part ordered an omelette with home fries and that was a definite disappointment as they were proponents promoted. The omelet dry and over cooked as were the home fries. There was... More

Not so cheery staff served a good breakfast to us every day on our trip to New York. We kept going back because it was near our hotel and the food was good. The staff certainly didn't endear themselves to us and we were lucky if we got any response to any conversation we attempted to start.

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... More

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.... More

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!

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.

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...

We decided that when we went to New York that we would try some traditional American Diners and the Moonstruck was by far the best. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the menu comprehensive and good value for money. The quality of the food we chose was very good and we have already recommended the Moonstruck to several friends... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
