Good food, which means, there's a good cook in the kitchen using fresh ingredients. Clean place. Usually adequate service. Convenient location-near hospitals and doctors' offices. It's a diner/coffee shop type place. See my photo of my cheddar cheese omelet w/excellent potatoes & toast, with oats on top crust of bread. Delicious. The negative was that the omelet was not hot,... More

The owner has been working hard to upgrade the look and menu. Though I enjoy the benefits of being a regular they need to lower the music, make better eye contact and pay more attention to customers in the atrium. The food is traditional diner food with a flair and very good.

Each year we spend a couple days in NYC starting on December 24th to enjoy our own "movie-fest". Traditionally, this begins with a mid-morning film on Christmas Day, this year at the Kips Bay Cinema on 2nd Avenue at about 32nd Street. As we have previously done getting out of that first movie during "lunch hour", we've gone one block... More

I went for a late lunch with a friend on a not very busy day. Ordered a chicken panini with waffle fries. Portion was good, food was diner quality...nothing memorable but it was not bad. Once the food was brought to the table, we never saw the waiter again. We had to flag three employees to get the check. We... More

I liked the food and the décor of this restaurant. I had an egg salad sandwich as an entrée, and a piece of chocolate layer cake for dessert.

Good food. Appalling service. Constantly. Get rid of that wall and wait staff might be able to see customers. Not much more to sum this place up. Lift your game!!

We stumbled into this place by chance ( we were really hungry and had to nowhere to eat nearby), so there were no assumptions nor expectations here. But it was pretty good having brunch here!. We were seated in the second floor which looks a bit rundown but they brought us 1 cup of chopped fruits ( very fresh!!), 1... More

For more than 10 years, this place has been my go-to diner for meetings with friends and business associates. It's rarely crowded, the ambiance is fine and I like the Murray Hill/Kips Bay neighborhood setting...Also, there's metered parking on the side street, which is usually available, so you can even keep an eye on your car--and the parking agents--if you...

As the diner is very close to our son's apartment we often drop in for breakfast. It is much as we being English understand a New York deli to be like.

First time here and I brought my 13 year old son for breakfast. We both enjoyed it very much. He said it was just perfect and just enough food. Most places do not cook turkey bacon as well as Moonstruck. The only complaint I have was I ordered French fries, and I was given home fries....after tasting them I was... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
