The service was not great, but the food was terrible! Surprised at how awful it was! Supposed to be a Greek diner and the moussaka did not resemble any moussaka we ever saw or tasted. We live in NY and have eaten in Greek diners for 60 years. This place is awful, from bread to main course. Wanted to like... More

The food is generally better than average diner food. However it can be hit or miss. The Reuben wrap was delicious and my favorite is the mashed turnip side-never seen that anywhere else. The service is generally good however, the restaurant is small and the booths are tight. Not a comfortable place for a meal. Bathrooms need more attention. Parking... More

Nice food, prompt service and large portions at a good price. Nice to find a place that doesn't rip you off on Christmas day.

We found Tibbett Diner on a list of NY hidden gems and decided to try it as we are often enthusiastic about vintage diners. We went the first time and have been going back almost every week since. The food is good quality and made to perfection. The coffee is also great. We have been there for both breakfast and... More

Great food however my scallop breading came off before I could get a bite. Service was very good and setting was intimate it seems of you are a regular you will be served faster maybe but definitely waitstaff and host was very friendly.

The seats are so small in there booths you feel as if you will fall off. All and all diner feel -good food... More

This place is the best. I live a few blocks away and we eat here all the time. From breakfast through dinner, this place will not disappoint. Pancakes- amazing. Chicken parm- oh yeah. Crab stuffed lobster (they get it and serve it fresh)- not to be missed! It's a real neighborhood diner that uses quality ingredients, and is consistently delicious.... More

We called to order take out breakfast on a busy Saturday morning. Food was hot and ready in 10 minutes, and experience was very smooth and easy. Manager/cashier gentleman added check in his head--haven't seen that for a while!

My Dad and brother go every Sunday morning for breakfast and I often join them but today I went for lunch with my son. Both of our meals were nicely cooked and good sized portions - I am saving half for lunch tomorrow!
