Visited as a family. Service was prompt and courteous. Enjoyed a no frills authentic diner experience, we were not expecting anything else and so enjoyed our bagels and milk shake and the chance to see the place associated with Seinfeld.

The place has been remodeled since Seinfeld series, but it is nice. The food is good and the service too. It is a good experience, but it only accepts cash.

The girl who served us was really nice and efficient. The portion is large, it can serve two people who doesn't eat a lot. It's a decent food.

So much fun going to this Seinfeld icon. Our first dinner in NY city. Food was yum. Service was great!

We went for lunch because of the Seinfeld connection, but came away disappointed by the food. We probably ordered the wrong things -- corned beef sandwich and gyro. The breakfasts looked good.

Well, I just had to come back here after many years. The restaurant was used in early Seinfeld episodes as Monk's Diner, and just as Seinfeld was full of humor often with rigid attitudes, Tom's restaurant still reflects those times. For example, you can only...More

I see someone else explained how to get there. However, Tom's Diner is REALLY not worth the effort. It is cheap (plastic cups) and outrageously expensive ($8 minimum) at the same time If you plan to walk around Harlem and... More
