This diner has been in existence for a long time. It serves many different types of dishes, from pasta, and fish to salads and burgers. There are also several options for kids. The servings are big, but a little bit at the expense of quality. They tend to overdo the gravy and sauces and can do a better job with... More

I have patronized this diner for the past 5 years. I love coming here for breakfast... it's an old school diner. The service and food are good. I would recommend VIP Diner for breakfast.

Service was mediocre. Food was not properly prepared. After watching another diner leave saying food was disgusting, we also left. Having related our thoughts we were in no way compensated. Never will go there or recommend this dive to anyone.

I've been to a great many diners in my time. I've had everything from fabulous to "meh" in terms of the quality of my experiences. Seldom do I give a diner a truly bad review. The VIP Diner has lead me to break that tradition. Today's breakfast was probably the worst I've ever had in any diner ever. It took... More

Stopped in recently for breakfast and was not disappointed. Coffee was hot and we always had a full cup! Breakfast was well prepared and nice portions. Good deal!

We had a just passable breakfast here. They serve Canadian bacon with their eggs benedict, which is round and nowhere near as tasty as the genuine article. The Cheese blintzes with (tinned) cherry preserve/cornflour side were a bit too claggy. Home fries were tasty. Maybe dinner would be a better option. There's lot of car parking space available.

I love this diner! Their serving are HUUUUUGE! One order can feed two people already. I super love their calamari in marinara sauce! Superb! The place is quiet, a little old but we didn't mind. The waitress were very nice. They are open 24 hours everyday. They have wide parking space. Don't forget to order dessert, their strawberry cheesecake is... More

On a recent visit to Jersey City, we decided to get take-out and bring it back to our room at The Ramada on Tonnelle Ave. A short walk away is the VIP diner, and it did not disappoint. My wife had Eggplant with chicken, and I had a roast beef dinner with mashed potatoes and peas and carrots. Both meals... More
