The Anti-Denny's in NoHo – Sitton's? I swear, the sign says "NoHo Diner" out front... but I digress. Sitton's is the anti-Denny's-- it's crusty and fusty, and kind of eccentric. The waitresses, while friendly, have that wise-cracking cynicism that comes from slinging plates o' hash at neighborhood regulars for years. The food? Fairly unremarkable -- but it's diner food, what do you expect? One of my screenwriter friends who lives in Studio City swears by this place -- he loves that it's unpretentious and unapologetically not a chain restaurant. Me? Well, I was disappointed somewhat because I was so hoping that the food would be awesome, and it'd be the kind of place I'd go to every Sunday. But, well... if the food was great, then I'd probably never be able to get a table so quickly on a Sunday morning. It's a neighborhood diner -- the kind of place you'd see in every town in the U.S.A. if there were no Denny's -- and if your expectations are at that level, you'll never be disappointed.
Disguisting food, disguisting people – The food in this restaurant is so bad, even on a Saturday night after consumming many, many drinks I couldn't allow myself to consume it. The people are even more disturbing than the look and the taste of the food. I'm not sure if there's an S&M club nearby, but there were many older, half-dressed, leather-clad patrons walking around. Definately not a sight to be seen... Avoid!!! Ihop is Spago's compared to this dump.
Barely Average – I went there last night with my GF and the food was bad. I ordered a club sandwich and it was horrible the bacon was soggy and old as if it was prepared at 5:00 am and the turkey was a thick very dry cut so go figure. My GF ordered veggie lasagna and did not sit well with her either. The service was good and the food came out of the kitchen pretty quick. I recommend it if nothing else is open at late night but do not expect good food.
This 24-hour diner attracts NoHo locals and a late-night crew of young actors catching an apres-rehearsal bite. – In Short
Two life-sized waiter statues greet patrons at the entranceway while inside, patterned brick walls are largely obscured by eight-by-10 studio stills (including a signed photo from a "Terminator"-era Arnold). Low lighting sets this place apart from the typically bright diner. At breakfast, fare like meaty pork chops with eggs and hash browns and corned beef hash with eggs sit alongside omelettes and pancakes. Other options include deli sandwiches, sirloin steak, grilled fish, veal and salads.
i make it a point to stop by at least once a week at the diner. working nights, i sometimes really feel like just sitting back and relaxing. the service at sitton's is great. all the waitresses are very helpful and the hosts(esses) don't make you wait just for a table just because they can and they don't rush you out the door after your meal. good coffee and breakfast on my way home really make the trip worth it. i would recommend anything on the menu but i have yet to try everything.
AND YOUR POINT IS? – We love this place. We go late at night. Good home-style dinners and for the late night crowd, great breakfast. The night waitresses are a hoot. Once they get to know you, they'll rib you endlessly and they take it as easily as they give it. As a native New Yorker, I get a kick out of this attitude. The patio seems to be the place where the fun people hang out. I hope they're around for a l-o-n-g time.
check out the grade in the window – This place had so much potential, but now it has - well not so great food, mean servers, and a bit on the dirty side. The up side is - it is open 24 hours. Don't expect much from this joint.
