I used to live up near Columbia U in the 90s and was up here today and stopped in at Tom's Diner for an early dinner. Not at all crowded and sat at the counter. Never go to a restaurant for nostalgia! Food was poor....More

We ordered the Rueben and Chicken Wrap and bowl of soup. The food was great. Our waitress was very friendly.

The food is ok, but the service is not the best. I would not come back to this place unless Jerry and Co. invited me. Get a picture, eat if you're hungry, and never go back to the Upper West Side.

Being two Brits on holiday, Tom's was exactly what we wanted! Fluffy pancakes and unlimited coffee. Some staff didn't have great English but they were all super friendly. The menu is so extensive, we didn't really know what a lot of things were! But pancakes...More

What a disappointment. Service staff were rude and the food was ordinary - we chose to pay 10% service fee and got abused. Take a photo from outside and move on fast !!!!
