I often take my elderly mother for breakfast or lunch and the service is very good and food is what is expected from a diner. The selection is very broad for breakfast and lunch. I have never had dinner but there is a large selection and variety of meat and fish offerings. The prices are very reasonable.

It wasn't bad, but very average. I had a spinach salad that tasted good, but the portion was on the small side. My friend had a grilled cheese with tomato and bacon which she also thought was just average. It's close to where I work, that's why we went there. The waite staff was pleasant and the service was good,... More

I often go to this diner. It's great for any meal. The food is always tasty and plentiful and the value is really good. Service is usually excellent. Staff is friendly and accommodating. The décor is constantly updated but the design is quite bad. Simple would be better.

The diner is family owned and the owner is there most of the time which makes everything run smoothly. The food is good and the staff is professional and friendly. The Specials are always fresh and their prices are excellent.

Wanted to go out for nice dinner after zoo, should have gone to McDonald's instead. It was 9 p.m., however - we ordered soup, didn't get it (thankfully, didn't get charged for it.) Greco buffalo wings had too much sauce not including dip (still tasty.) Wife said wrap was too bland. My Reuben was dry and not enough dressing. Slow... More

This was my second visit to the Livingston Diner, and it agrees with my first visit, which is that it serves functional food, with no "pizzazz" or real appeal. I ordered a tuna fish sandwich, which came on whole wheat bread with some tired looking lettuce and no tomato. At least the pickle and cole slaw were good. The tuna... More

We had the eggs Benedict and fried egg sandwich. Each very good. Edvino brought us a cheese pastry that was light and delicious! Lots of family and friends gathered after Thanksgiving. Clean and bright with a variety of seasonal music. Recommend for breakfast or brunch.

Went on a Monday evening at 5:30. Very crowded but got table in a few minutes. Service was a little slow since the crowd was so big. Food was again excellent - everything. Ordered cream of mushroom for 1st time in a long time and it was also extremely tasty. Bread was also very fresh and tasty. Meal comes with... More

We travel to the US frequently and love the American diner experience. Once in a while we find something really good and this one. We went for the weekend and ended up eating breakfast twice at this place. Good food, good value for the money.

They have a good breakfast menu. Lots of your typical breakfast fare. You can always order "regular items" as well. I frequently get a BTL and fries for breakfast. Service is fast and friendly.
