I used to live up near Columbia U in the 90s and was up here today and stopped in at Tom's Diner for an early dinner. Not at all crowded and sat at the counter. Never go to a restaurant for nostalgia! Food was poor. Mashed potatoes were cold on the Yankee Pot Roast platter, sent it back. The small... More

The food is ok, but the service is not the best. I would not come back to this place unless Jerry and Co. invited me. Get a picture, eat if you're hungry, and never go back to the Upper West Side.

Take photo and move on....... I walked in with husband and 2 children so excited to be here sat down in booth ordered drinks and that's all we wanted. Turned out we got kicked outside table because we had to spend $8 each person to sit inside. Terrible service.

I've been to this diner more times than I can remember . After a long night of partying and hanging out, this is where we go to have that " I don't want to be sick tomorrow" breakfast. Not fancy, just good ,fresh, tasty food, and prompt , courteous service.

Being the Seinfeld icon that it is, I was expecting that the dining experience would be high priced with low quality. Not only was I wrong, I was very wrong! This is one of the best breakfasts I've have had, and breakfast spots are one of my favorite to visit. First of all, the price of breakfast included small juice... More

If you've seen Seinfeld then you know this diner. My advice - take your photo outside and skip eating. The inside of the diner looks NOTHING like the tv version. And I think I had the worst hamburger ever. The staff seems preoccupied and service is ehhhh, had to keep trying to get their attention. Not going back. Not even... More

Being two Brits on holiday, Tom's was exactly what we wanted! Fluffy pancakes and unlimited coffee. Some staff didn't have great English but they were all super friendly. The menu is so extensive, we didn't really know what a lot of things were! But pancakes and waffles were amazing, if we return to Brooklyn we will certainly be back!

What a disappointment. Service staff were rude and the food was ordinary - we chose to pay 10% service fee and got abused. Take a photo from outside and move on fast !!!!
