Within the concrete jungle of NYC stands a Diner that one would find in suburbia. The staff is great, food is top notch. Looking for breakfast, lunch or dinner while walking around TriBeCa, then stop by the Gee Whiz Diner.

Went twice (two different days LOL) I like that the Maio is in a box so you can chose to not use it :)

This restaurant has the typical New York diner mixed fare with large portions. It's always near capacity and the staff is very helpful. Large breakfast combos abound.

My wife and I had a late breakfast/early lunch at the Gee Whiz Diner. The wife had eggs, bacon, and hash browns which she said were prepared to her liking. I had a burger and fries no complaints from me.

One night it was really raining (3 inches) so this was an easy way to get dinner....food quality is diner-style, faster than fast service and prices well below New York averages

Very Good omelettes and sandwiches. This is a diner and should not be classified as a Greek restaurant. Good and quick for lunch.

We were glad we found this dinner. We had a good breakfast, great coffee and staff were always taking care of us. We were always on the run so we got there and we got our breakfast quick and no complaints. Great service.
