Would never go back again – I have eaten at the Menlo Park Diner in the past and was always satisfied. However, after the last visit, I would never go there again. We ate there on August 2 (Saturday night - prime time). First of all, one of us wanted to order off of the kid's menu (this patron was 12). The waitress told her that if she was not 10 years old or under that she would be fired for serving her a kid's meal and that "they" were watching.
She ordered a regular meal and asked for mashed potatoes instead of fries. The waitress said that it was not a problem. When the dinners showed up, her plate had the fries instead of mashed potatoes. We asked for the mashed potatoes and the waitress said, "they put the wrong thing on your plate." So the waitress brought out a plate of mashed potatoes but told the patron that she would have to GIVE BACK her fries because "they" were watching and she would be fired. Ew. So we "gave back" the fries. I've never heard of such a thing ever. I can only imagine what they did with those fries. Put them on some unsuspecting customer's plate?
When it came time for to pay, the owner was as rude as he could be. We inquired about the plate of cookies sitting by the register and asked if we could have one. He said, "I guess you can." Very nasty.
Rude, rude, rude. I would never go here again. The Skylark down the street is far superior. I can't believe that Menlo Park Diner stays in business with their attitude.
Pretty outside - ugly inside – In the evening of Monday, 04/28/2008, we made the mistake of ordering a bowl of pasta with butter for my two year old daughter and shame on us for not checking the price of this item. It was $6.95 for a bowl of spaghetti with butter. We ordered three additional sandwiches, a BLT, cheeseburger and burger melt and that bowl of pasta was the MOST expensive item! When I asked the manager about the expensive price he snorted, "What can I do about it?" Astonished I quickly responded, "Well you could take it off (the bill)." This place is disgusting. Don't get me wrong the food was fine, the ambiance is pretty and I still tipped the waitress. But this place made me sick. I shouldn't have been surprised - the place was basically empty.
Great Food, best Diner – Great food, great atmostphere, low prices. Fun place to bring a family, or romantic enough to bring someone special. I must see.
By far the WORST diner in NJ! – The wait staff, as well as the management, is slow, neglectful, and incredibly rude to their customers. The orders are neither filled in a timely fashion, not are accurate. Terrible customer service.
