A somewhat iconic Village diner, the Waverly is actually much better than most people believe. The breakfast is among the best in town.
BEST EVER!! – This is probably my favorite place to eat in the entire world!!! The food is amazing and the people there are really nice and provide good service. The meals come with PLENTY of food, I never finish my meal and always bring home enough for a complete meal for my lunch or dinner the next day. I go here as often as I can (even though it's an hour or so from me =D ) I recommend it to all my friends and I will continue to go there as often as possible!
Decent – The restaurant is good for a "Diner" but horrible for a restaurant. Service was poor and very slow. The men's bathroom was the worst smelling bathroom I have smelled in New York! The food was pretty damn good though. I had the bananna pancakes. Excellent bananna pancakes.
Great food, great staff, great prices – This is my favorite diner in NYC, no doubt. The staff is very friendly, the food is always good and has good portions. The prices are great too. I will always keep going back to Waverly and I always bring my friends there or recommend it to them.
Amazing Value – This is a typical New York diner, and the service was quick and polite. From the enormous menu, we opted for the 3-course dinner specials - chicken soup or clam chowder, although small portions, came with loads of rolls, crackers etc. Big fresh mixed salad followed with choice of homemade dressings, then main course - my boiled beef dinner had huge slices of beautiful meat with vegetable & potatoes, my wife's bbq combo was great. With beer & coke, total bill only $24.00!!!!!!
Hits the spot – What has a menu longer than my nose, and is more satisfying? The Waverly! 24 hours, breakfast all day, anything you could possibly desire in diner food, great staff and decent prices. When you are done with Babbo 1/2 block away, and you have no money, but still need a Belgian waffle, come on down to the diner that will comfort your needs.
Convenient Place to Go – This place has great milkshakes and yummy eggs and nice staff. Sometimes it is too filling. I like the presentation of the eggs. I like the booths. It's open all the time, which is good.
the best cheesecake! – and only $3.15!!! this place is a great breakfast place. the prices are great, the space is very neat - a real diner. the service, at the counter was the way to go - otherwise the line gets to long to wait for a table - the place is small. i still can't get over how inexpensive and good the cheesecake was. i've paid a lot more for cheesecake that didn't come close to this one.
Waverly Restaurant – This is a typical diner. However, their homefries were terrible, very greasy and bland. Also, the gg sandwhich was not as good as the fried eggs in a pan. All in all, it was OK - certaintly not worth a return trip with all the other places to have brunch in NYC.
Solid diner food any hour of the day – This has got to be one of the most reliable 24/7 diners out there. The food's not bad either. Like someone else said, don't go for the fancy dishes, stick to the basics which is what they do best.
The place is open round the clock and gets crowded even at 3 AM, mostly folks unwinding from the bar and club scene ducking in for some coffee and bites.
Service is prompt and businesslike, has to be with the kind of crowd this place packs in on the weekends.
My favorite Manhattan Diner – I love this place! The food is great, the waitstaff very friendly (Omar knows me and my boyfriend by name and what drinks we want without even asking anymore), and it's open 24-7. Great place for people watching at any hour of the day. The Waverly Melt (burger on toasted bread with cheese, fried onions, onion rings, and french fries) is my favorite.
