BEST EVER!! 10/19/2007

This is probably my favorite place to eat in the entire world!!! The food is amazing and the people there are really nice and provide good service. The meals come with PLENTY of food, I never finish my meal and always bring home enough for a complete meal for my lunch or dinner the next day. I go here as often as I can (even though it's an hour or so from me =D ) I recommend it to all my friends and I will continue to go there as often as possible! Pros: Food, Service, Staff Cons: Small more

Decent 10/14/2007

The restaurant is good for a ""Diner"" but horrible for a restaurant. Service was poor and very slow. The men's bathroom was the worst smelling bathroom I have smelled in New York! The food was pretty damn good though. I had the bananna pancakes. Excellent bananna pancakes. Pros: Good Food Cons: Poor Service, HORRIBLE Mens Bathroom more

Great food, great staff, great prices 3/12/2007

This is my favorite diner in NYC, no doubt. The staff is very friendly, the food is always good and has good portions. The prices are great too. I will always keep going back to Waverly and I always bring my friends there or recommend it to them. Pros: food, service, prices more

Amazing Value 10/20/2004

This is a typical New York diner, and the service was quick and polite. From the enormous menu, we opted for the 3-course dinner specials - chicken soup or clam chowder, although small portions, came with loads of rolls, crackers etc. Big fresh mixed salad followed with choice of homemade dressings, then main course - my boiled beef dinner had huge slices of beautiful meat with vegetable & potatoes, my wife's bbq combo was great. With beer & coke, total bill only $24.00!!!!!! Pros: Huge menu, Great value, Good Home Cooking more

Hits the spot 8/4/2004

What has a menu longer than my nose, and is more satisfying? The Waverly! 24 hours, breakfast all day, anything you could possibly desire in diner food, great staff and decent prices. When you are done with Babbo 1/2 block away, and you have no money, but still need a Belgian waffle, come on down to the diner that will comfort your needs. Pros: Price, Selection, Authenticity more

Convenient Place to Go 7/19/2004

This place has great milkshakes and yummy eggs and nice staff. Sometimes it is too filling. I like the presentation of the eggs. I like the booths. It's open all the time, which is good. Pros: Cheap, Service, Bacon more

the best cheesecake! 11/20/2003

and only $3.15!!! this place is a great breakfast place. the prices are great, the space is very neat - a real diner. the service, at the counter was the way to go - otherwise the line gets to long to wait for a table - the place is small. i still can't get over how inexpensive and good the cheesecake was. i've paid a lot more for cheesecake that didn't come close to this one. more

Waverly Restaurant 9/21/2003

This is a typical diner. However, their homefries were terrible, very greasy and bland. Also, the gg sandwhich was not as good as the fried eggs in a pan. All in all, it was OK - certaintly not worth a return trip with all the other places to have brunch in NYC. more

Solid diner food any hour of the day 9/18/2003

This has got to be one of the most reliable 24/7 diners out there. The food's not bad either. Like someone else said, don't go for the fancy dishes, stick to the basics which is what they do best. The place is open round the clock and gets crowded even at 3 AM, mostly folks unwinding from the bar and club scene ducking in for some coffee and bites. Service is prompt and businesslike, has to be with the kind of crowd this place packs in on the weekends. Pros: reliable, consistent, businesslike Cons: crowded, basic diner food more

My favorite Manhattan Diner 12/28/2002

I love this place! The food is great, the waitstaff very friendly (Omar knows me and my boyfriend by name and what drinks we want without even asking anymore), and it's open 24-7. Great place for people watching at any hour of the day. The Waverly Melt (burger on toasted bread with cheese, fried onions, onion rings, and french fries) is my favorite. Pros: cheap, open all the time, good location Cons: no credit cards more

Average/above average coffee shop 8/24/2002

For a fast tuna melt, cup of chicken soup or eggs (fried are served in fry pan), it works though you may have to wait for a table. But it's simply a coffee shop, nothing more and not necessarily among the best. The burger is decent, but let's not steer people to think this is more than it is. Pros: clean enough, fast, for a quick bite Cons: nothing special, may have to wait more

Good Eats 7/31/2002

This place is great for diner food and breakfast. The grilled pattie melt rules. The fries are tasty. And the service is quick. Obviously this place isn't for a romantic night out, but it's great for yummy food at good prices. This place can get a little cramped. After a long night of drinking, this place is a nice oasis. Pros: great diner food, quick service Cons: not romantic, a little cramped more

A sort-of-local secret...for now. 7/18/2002

This place has yet to catch on, but it always seems on the verge. I hope it doesn't happen. Why? Because I know at any hour, of any day, in whatever condition I'm in, my friends and I can get amazing food and great coffee in a great atmosphere where we can sit, smoke, and relax. One of the few places in town that lets you smoke, it's much appreciated. The decor is hilarious (headshots of people who were obviously never famous...check out ""The Champ"") and the waitstaff is always kind. You're never rushed, and they'll know whether to joke with you or leave you alone. The Waverly Melt is the best patty melt in the city, but skip the appetizers (the onion rings are woeful). Other than that, stay away from the fancier fare (no place cooks good calamari at 330am) and enjoy the rest. Pros: Great service, Mostly good food, You can smoke Cons: Some iffy fare. more

Best Breakfast In Town 5/25/2002

I always come here for when I want breakfast for lunch. Their omelet specials that come with home fries and toast are one of my favorites. Add a dollar or so more and you can get a whole variety of other items to go with your meal. The french toast, sandwiches and soups are great too. Large portions and inexpensive. Cozy small place where you occasionally feel a surprisingly relaxing rumble of the subway underneath your seat. Pros: Inexpensive, Large Portions, Breakfast Items Cons: Sometimes Crowded more
