Trip Advisor shows that they close at 12:00 Noon, but that is a mistake. They are open until 12:00 MIDNIGHT, I pointed this out to the owner & he said he would try to correct that. I really enjoyed going to this Diner & having...More

This is a New York City diner. Big floppy menus with a ton of options, a good brunch special - and definitely reasonable for brunch on the Upper East Side - and very accessible for people with families on the weekend. That said, it is...More

Breakfast was good, no complaints there. Service was standard NYC diner. The ladies restroom however, reflected poorly on the Silver Star. Don't think the floor had seen a mop in all its years and the toilet itself had seen cleaner days.

Any diner in business for over 50 years New York City must be doing a great deal right. Service this morning was very prompt and very friendly, the coffee was delicious, and a lox and scrambled egg wrap was cooked to perfection.

Have visited Silver Star many many times over the years - always with family. I have mixed feelings ... Place is very clean and there is lots of choice on the menu. However, staff can be unfriendly and provide a 'throw at you' service which...More
