There is a tasty option available for any customer on the menu, including but not limited to omelets, salads, burgers and gyros. Whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner that you crave, Nations Cafe will prepare what you want, regardless of the time of day. Not only do they have a friendly staff, but their delivery is incredibly fast.

Nation's Diner is the best diner in Manhattan. Their food takes diner food to a whole new level, AND it's always extremely fast. You can tell the cook at Nation's knows what he/she is doing. They also one time threw in a free slice of pie! They do charge additional for take out packaging but it's absolutely worth it. Your food always arrives in perfect condition. I highly recommend their french toast and corned beef hash. Their omelettes are also amazing. Their home fries have a bit of a smoky flavor to them are are delicious!

Ordered the "Fresh ground turkey burger" What a lie. I received a flat frozen patty on a bun two sizes too small... False advertising at it's best ...NEVER AGAIN I HAVE BETTER TURKEY BURGERS IN MY FREEZER AT HOME

I usually order the typical breakfast, today I tried the California Breakfast Wrap and I got to say, I liked it. My order came in less than 30 minutes and the food was still hot, so hot that the cheese on the wrap stretched out for what seemed like miles. This morning I'm currently satisfied at work.

Just like Mom used to make dinner. Delicious and perfect on these cold winter nights to have a complete meal. Tasty, moist turkey with gravy and dressing. Ham steak really good and love that pineapple slice on top. Worthwhile and will keep ordering.

Food was ice cold when it arrived, so I had to throw it out. I ,most definitely wouldn't recommend ordering from here.

The worst diner ever! Waited over 2hrs for the order. Called twice to check on the order...got yelled at both times and the guy lied that the food was delivered the second time I called. When I finally got the food, everything was soggy and cold! Def choose another diner to order from!

HORRIBLE. Ordered food and my order wasn't complete. Called to check. And the guy hung up on me after I explained to him. Called a second time. And he hung up AGAIN right after I said I just called. Called a third time and he hung up after hearing my voice. RIDICULOUSLY RUDE. NEVER ORDERING FROM HERE AGAIN. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND UNLESS YOU LIKE RUDE SERVICE

I've gotten the BLT and waffle fries numerous times and it's been excellent! They load up your BLT with fresh ingredients and the waffle fries are to die for! Totally recommend Nations Diner, they are always earlier than expected too!

ABSOLUTELY THE WORST RESTAURANT ON SEAMLESS! We placed an order at 1am with an ETA of 30-45 minutes. I called at 2:30am to find out the status of the order and the man who answered informed me they were busy and my order would be arriving in 2+ hours (around 5am!!!!!).... not only this but he was extremely EXTREMELY rude. He proceeded to hang up on me when I asked to speak to his manager. DO NOT ORDER FROM HERE!!!!

Waited 2.5 hours and my food still never came. Don't think I need to say any more than that.

Ordered delivery which said 30-45 mins. Got confirmation 10 mins after I ordered. I called an hour after I ordered and the guy said he was at a different location and the one I ordered from was closed, but not to worry I would get my money back. What a crappy response. Terrible way to run a business. They don't deserve my business. I wish I read these reviews beforehand.

An hour to deliver. A rude response when I called 45 minutes after my order to check on the delivery. The portions were small and quality mediocre at best. Never ordering from here again.

I ordered nachos. I mind as well have just picked up tostitos from the nearest market and toss a tiny bit of chili on top. The plate was virtually bare, almost nothing on the chips which didn't even taste fresh. Very disappointed.

After and hour and a half, we received overripe/rotten strawberries and blueberries in our fruit salad and an egg sandwich that tasted like it had been microwaved (very rubbery - possibly related to it taking an hour and a half to get here). The salad was just OK - couldn't find anything redeeming about the whole process.

Ordered with Seamless showing a 20-30 min delivery time. After the fact, they changed it to 60-75 min. This was late at night and I had fallen asleep because they didn't deliver until an hour and a half later. Tried calling them to deliver again or obtain a refund and the manager said "You lose," and hung up on me. Many other sh!++y diners you could order from with better service.

Do not order from here! I accidentally mistyped my address - called ten minutes later to fix it, and the man who works at Nations Diner cussed at me and told me that it was too bad and that I was not getting my food. I had to walk four blocks to meet the delivery man, and my food was cold and not good for the price. I wish I could have just cancelled it. Overall a horrible experience.

Mediocre food with terrible service. I stopped ordering from here after a horribly botched two hour delivery. The management is nonexistent. I called for days trying to get a refund and was told the manager was not in and to call the next day. I eventually gave up and quit ordering from this place.

Unbeknownst to me, Nations refers their take orders to Plaza Diner after midnight. Let me tell you that the Plaza Diner serves an inferior product!

EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED with my meal and response from the restaurant on Thanksgiving! Order was missing an item, my burger was missing the cheese and was raw with a sopping wet bun and the waffle fries were undercooked and wet!
Upon calling the restaurant, I was told that it was a very busy day for them (thanksgiving) and they were the only restaurant open (not true) and there was nothing they could do about it. I asked for a refund and was told the boss was not in and they hung up on me! I will NEVER order from Nations again. I understand mistakes happen, but being rude and not trying to remedy the problem is UNACCEPTABLE.

Everything about this place was horrible. The order took 1.5 hours to arrive (significantly longer than the 30-45 that was indicated). Secondly, everything was soggy. What does it take to find a decent diner in Murray Hill?

Ok for diner food. Delivery is quick and convenient. I prefer Morning Star Cafe on 2nd ave but there not on Seamless Web (yet)..

Completely unprofessional. Waited over an hour for the food and was told our order was not even started. We were then told that we had to wait another half hour. We indicated we wanted to cancel our order and suddenly were told our food was ready. When we complained, they said we had to call back the manager the next morning and that our food was ready. Extremely poor service.
Update: Called back repeatedly to ask for refund as card had still been charged. Repeatedly told manager would come back "tomorrow". Tomorrow apparently never came. Zero professionalism. Had to call credit card company to resolve dispute. Thank god American Express has great customer service.

I've eaten in and gotten takeout/delivery from here a number of times and have always been satisfied with my order. The staff is nice and accommodating and I've never had to wait very long for my order to be delivered.

Waiting for food 2 hours and counting. Got attitude when I called up the restaurant to check on my order for the third time. Will not be ordering from here again.

I live nearby (3 blocks) and review should be considered in that light.
I equate Nations to the local corner store deli in Manhattan: Acceptable, below average food at a good price. I would never order a legitimate meal from Nations, but it is great as a fast (local) late night place (love the grilled cheese), or a fast early-morning place in a pinch (the coffee is lousy but the breakfasts are okay),
Overall: fast if local but decisively below average food quality.

I ordered coffee, OJ and a bagel... the coffee spilled into the bag covering everything! the OJ was warm and the bagel got soggy from the coffee...

Tasty food from a typical NYC diner menu. Fast & convenient service to blocks at the northern end of U.N. territory along 1st & 2nd Ave. (Don't even bother with reading material if you ever dine-in solo at this joint. Your plate arrives before you could finish 1 article!) They are courteous & clean, as well. My only complaint would be [more recent] rising price lists that have reduced overall value for a meal.
