As i am a big fan of Seinfeld, i couldn't leave NY without visiting the famous toms restuarant where the seinfeld friends meet. Traditional American cafe with big burgers and fries. Meals are ok not exciting but large serving. Few signed pictures of seinfelds hanging on the wall. Staff are friendly. No need to make a booking for a meal. It was snowing the evening we went there so it was nice to go in get a hot chocolate and a hot meal

We are huge Seinfeld fans and thought we’d check out Tom’s while in New York. It’s right off the Cathedral Subway stop in Harlem. We were seated promptly and enjoyed a booth. Everything seems very original here. Service was good and it seemed as though two people were serving the entire restaurant. They were constantly running around. There are pictures of actors surrounding the restaurant and it felt like a typical New York mom and pop shop. The food was tasty, hot and fresh! My only wish is that there were items on the menu that were referenced in the show. The restrooms could use a renovation and we’re very dated. Overall, a good stop.

We were recommended this diner by 2 New Yorker's after bonding over music and realising that this is the diner that Suzanne Vega sung about - we had no idea what Seinfeld was?! It's away from the hustle and bustle of main NYC which is nice. The food was reasonably cheap compared to what other restaurants in NYC charge. We both ordered Burgers for our early dinner. I really liked the inside of the diner - lots of photographs/memorabilia on the walls. The staff were friendly and attentive.

We went for breakfast on a Sunday morning. We asked for decaf coffee, they told us they did not have any. We were walking away, but the waitress said that they will make it. She came late with two small cups (about 6 oz) of lukewarm coffee. My wife asked for a refill and the waitress offered me the leftover coffee in the pot (about half a cup). Since the cups were relatevely small, we ask for adtional coffee. The end result was that we ended with a bill for $15 (plus tax) just for the coffee. (Each 6 oz cup was priced $2,50, and each refill (including a refill of half a cup) was chaged $2:50. Although we live a block away, we are not going back to this place, and tell everyone of our friends about our experience.

Obviously had to stop here being a lifelong fan of the show. My friend & I were going to stop for breakfast before a Yankees game but decided to come for an early dinner after. Of course, we had to take our photos outside. The inside is filled with tons of photos, articles, and other Seinfeld things, which were great. I couldn't see them all since many are above booths where people were eating. Typical diner food and the best part of all, typical diner prices. I was nervous they'd jack up the price because the exterior is so famous, but it was very afforable.

This place is listed as a point of interest as well. The establishment gets probably half its customers based upon the show Seinfeld. The south side of the building was used as an establishing shot for the famous series. More of a family restaurant with breakfast served all day, and sandwiches as well as home made soup

Visited with my husband who was over excited to eat at this place as he's a big Seinfeld fan. We got a seat straight away, despite the diner being busy. We both ordered gyros, which was served with fries, salad and tzatziki. Reasonably priced, good food, good pleasant service. Would visit again.

Great priced breakfast which was delicious. Worth a train trip uptown. Is busy and bustling which adds to the charm of the classic American diner, which we were looking for. Pancakes and free coffee top ups made a great start to our day. Service was speedy and polite.

We went there only because this was the restaurant Jerry Seinfeld and his friends hung out in the show. It was a pleasant good old greasy spoon with a lot of people. There are no vegan friendly breakfast choice as I predicted, but I had a pretty nice fruit salad for $6 which for me was over priced but hey it is in Manhattan.

The only reason I’m giving Tom’s 3 stars is because of the Seinfeld connection. As a huge fan of the greatest sitcom ever made, I had to visit for that reason only. I did however go in with low expectations and that held true. The choices for breakfast aren’t really anything exciting or out of the norm. Very basic diner food. The pancakes were ok. I don’t know exactly what I would have liked to see but it just was a bit disappointing. Except for the fact the outside is on Seinfeld.

It's a truly terrible restaurant that doesn't have to try a bit because of the Seinfeld connection. So my advice is to take the pics outside with the sign but don't go inside, since the Seinfeld inside was a Hollywood set, not this place. Really, don't waste your money!

I’d probably give this restaurant a 3.5 if that was an option. The restaurant was clean and staff were friendly. I had soup and a BLT and my wife had the Berry Salad. The food was very good. It’s a bit small and nothing to write home about. Stopped by to get a pick since we were Seinfeld fans and decided to get a light lunch.

An excellent diner. Extensive reasonably priced menu. Speedy service with a smile and the added bonus of being THE Tom's Diner of Suzanne Vega fame. Will visit again on our return to New York.

We are Seinfeld fanatics, and we walked from our hotel at 34th Street to the Seinfeld restaurant at 112th. The walk was great, but the restaurant was even better. There were several people taking pictures outside, so you know that there are other Seinfeld addicts around the world. In fact, there was a middle eastern couple who were taking pictures and enjoy the reruns. We have seen each episode at least 100 times over the last 30 years. The food is good, and the service excellent. Don't miss it.

Nice place, but service was bad. Bad attitude. Too rude for a family restaurant. Even though is nice to be in the restaurant that inspired Seinfeld - full of tourists - we are not coming back.
