Seinfeld debut restaurant. Hands down the best corned beef hash I have ever eaten. Very busy always but worth the wait.

We had lunch here and we were disappointed to see that it wasn't reflecting the level of reviews that it has on Tripadvisor. The only plus is the price, very competitive. The rest (food, service, cleanliness) is definitely not adequate.

I fangirled so hard when we came to visit. As a major Seinfeld junkie, I coerced my family into meandering across town to indulge my TV obsession.

My brother, his friend, and I went here for breakfast while we were in the city. It was the cheapest meal I had the whole weekend I was visiting my brother. My water glass was never empty and the servers were all friendly. Thanks for the recommendation, Jerry Seinfeld!

Tom's restaurant is well known as being featured in Seinfeld . There are plenty of celebrity pictures covering the walls. The food is OK it's diner food. But something to keep in mind they only take cash . If you like to eat quickly and Basic American food the restaurant is perfect for you.

This place is cult for Seinfeld fans ( we are not ) but still a really nice place for a diner style American breakfast with pancakes & eggs any style you like. The location is very close to Columbia university and perfect for a start to visit this area.

Unlike the diner at the show, you can't just hang out and relax here. As soon as you're done eating they let you know it's time to get out. The food is below average and there's no WIFI.

As a Seinfeld fan this was a "must see place" on my list. Ordered breakfast such as pancakes, bacon, toast ,juice, coffee, water and it all tasted good. Good service,good value, just what a diner should look like. Lovely place.

We went out of our way when visiting NYC to have breakfast at the Seinfeld diner. We can check that off our list, but I wouldn't go back. The food was just average and the service was mediocre at best. It was fun to see the Seinfeld memorabilia they have on the walls and to take a picture out front.... More
