I offered to pay the $5.00 extra charge for one of their steak entrees but out of five different steak choices on the menu they only had one this should not be. The food was not to good, there was no ambience and the service was just fair. In addition they added the gratuity to the check as this is against the law in New York State for only two people. It is my policy to leave a 20 percent tip on the full value of the check anyway. We will not go back to Liberty Diner again. There are many more better choices in New York City to chose from

The wrong phone number was on the voucher. It took 2 days for Groupon to reply and when they did they said they still didn't know== would I like I refund. Wish I had taken it. I finally looked it up on google and found a number they said I didn't need a reservation THAT'S BECAUSE This not a RESTAURANT IT IS A FAST FOOD PLACE. they told me "they no longer take groupons" after I yelled at them and showed them the expiration date they reluctantly said they would give us up to $60 for it. It was FAST FOOD no "price fix" as the voucher said. This filthy place is a tourist trap in times square. We live here and would NEVER have gone if we'd realized. they also charged us an automatic tip which is actually illegal. WE just wanted to get out of there because it was so awful--didn't have the dessert that was promised. I am so disgusted with this experience that I am now going to REMOVE MY GROUPON AP and ask to no longer receive emails. You guys obviously don't vet the places you provide and you no longer provide any kind of customer service. I'M DONE.

Food was nothing greater than mediocre. We had the french onion soup (the best of the group); calamari, seared tuna steak and fish and chips. Nothing memorable or delightful.

ONE DINER HAD A GOOD MEAL, DECENT PASTRAMI AND NICE APPLE PIE THE OTHER DID NOT...DRY CORNED BEEF, DENSE , NOT MOIST AND LUSCIOUS CHEESE CAKE. ALTHOUGH, THE COCKTAILS WERE DELISH....

Groupon wasn't right. Didn't get the value I've come to expect from groupon. They deduct $60 from check. That wasn't the groupon I bought.

The service was adequate but slow We had a pleasant waitress but she was handling too many customers at once. The food was very poor. The buns on the sandwiches were very stale, the burgers overcooked, and the French fries almost cold. The cheesecake and cake had been sitting out too long and were inedible. We were presented with two extra bills, plus paying for the Groupon. We wanted to complain but we didn't have time as we were trying to get to the theater on time. This is a drinking establishment more than a restaurant.

Most poorly run restaurant I have been in. The food was fine...But it is an enormous place with no atmosphere. Despite the fact that the theatre in the very back is gorgeous. There was 1young girl who I assumed was the waitress and finally went over to the bar and asked where we should sit. She actually was very sweet but didn't seem to know what was going on. She had to go asks questions somewhere in the back each time we asked something of her. I took friends from out of town...and all I can say was I was more than embarrassed (I apologized again and again) that this is where I took them in NYC. They are in the theatre and I thought a diner in an old theatre would be of interest.

From Our Editors

For years after its construction in 1904, the Liberty Theater housed some of Broadway's most popular shows, and the likes of Fred Astaire, Marilyn Miller, and George Cohen graced its stage. Its glitzy interiors, meanwhile, represented the opulence of show business. Today, that grand stage is closed, but its memory lives on in The Liberty Diner. Though recently renovated, the space retains much of its original interior architecture, including the glimmering retro decor and the colorful fish tank where all the actors were kept before every show. To match this spirit, the Diner's kitchen churns out dishes inspired by classic diners and bistros of the 20th century—but with a slightly modern twist. The signature house burger is topped with bacon and bleu cheese, and offered up alongside sandwiches such as a rare ahi tuna steak and a towering open-faced reuben. Hearty Italian pastas topped with seafood or cream sauce, tender bistro-style steak frites, and house specialties such as fish and chips and oven-baked meatballs are also served. Classic house cocktails and wine provide the ideal pairings for every dish.
