El Greco is a Landmark! I've been eating here since I moved to Sheepshead Bay in 1995. El Greco has always been for great comfort food. I love the outdoor cafe in the summer time....


Food almost good with large portions.Bathroom filthy, nasty towards americans,hostess looked like warmed over death from nazi times as if to say,'Ve vill brrreak you""...!!!LOL.....

Listed as CAFE EL GRECO by NYC Dept Of Health? 11/5/2010

This mouse infested sewer has a score of 26 violations by the NYC Department Of Health. This place makes it hard to report, or find, health violations because it doesn't use it's legal name on the building, it's real name is Cafe El Greco, not El Greco Diner. Go to the NYC Department Of Health at and look up Cafe El Greco. Never eat at Cafe El Greco unless you want to be entertained by watching mice running along the baseboards. more

Great Diner 8/10/2005

This is the diner I eat in most frequently. It is very large and has the option of indoor or outdoor seating. El Greco is usually not crowded so there is no wait. The environment is also very nice. Every dish is always very good. However, the prices are pretty high. You can spend a good amount of money on a meal and the portion is very small. This is also a nice place to eat and hang out with friends. more

El Greco Diner 8/5/2005

This was a very nice diner, located in Sheapshead Bay. The food was average, you could probably get the same quality at any diner. But the ambiance was very nice and you could definitely take a date here. That's what it felt like when I went with a friend of mine. One of us ordered the chicken parmagiana, which tasted good. I also had cake, which was delicious. The staff was pretty nice as well. I don't remember there being any problem with the waitress. The only thing is that diner food is very expensive, considering the food is not all that great. more

Decent Diner 7/15/2005

A very popular place where I live. Whenever my friends and I want to relax and have some coffee to discuss things we go tot his place. Great coffee and everyone loves their cheesecake with strawberries. The service is not the greatest though. Last time it took the waiter about 20 minutes to get to my friend and I. And then it took another 20 minutes to get me a piece of blueberry pie and coffee and my friends some lemon meringue pie. But then again it happens. Lousy ravioli as well, bad sauce. It is a must to try the cheesecake here if you are in the area. So if you want some coffee and cheesecake, then definitely give this place a try. more
