Never eat here. Never give them your money. Never park there – I'm with laura84 on this. I had the same problem happen to me tonight, just that I missed my car being towed and it happened. Lowlife. My boyfriend wanted to beat the little informant p.o.s. that works in the lot. He came very very close.
Go figure that they're Russians. It's not a big surprise in the least bit.
Disgusting – Dirty bathrooms, raw burgers, cold fries. molded bread on the wraps. Birthday cakes are too sweet tasting. The beers taste like tar. I hear they wanna tare down this palce and make it into condiminiums. Many of the employees aren't American and treat americans like shittttt. Outdoor seating takes forever to serve you, like they waitor/waitresses almost forget you are there. Very noisy, clanking plates. I heard the health inspector visited this place a number of times through out the years. I'm not comming back here.
SCAMMERS!!! – Russian Triads involved scamming with X-treme Body & Fender Inc and P&J Management. BEWARE. The restaurant is scamming everyone who steps foot on the premises. Disgrace
Owner has nothing but contempt for his customers. Avoid!!! – Avoid at all costs unless you like below-average food complimented by gruff service. The highlight of this place however is the ignorant owner who has nothing but contempt for his customers. If you make any complaint about the food you orderd you will simply be told not to order that meal again. Very helpful!!!
I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. – The service was terrible. We had greek salads w/no dressing. When we asked for some, the waitperson looked put out and what she brought back tasted like duck sauce. We only saw her 3 times.
Amazing<3 – I completely disagree with the earlier one star review. I found El Greco a charming place. This summer, I'd spent particular time there and found their outdoor tables comfortable and romantic. And when it got chilly and we headed inside, I found it cozy and adorable. The neon lighting cast a gorgeous glow across the beautiful restaurant and illuminated the handsome features inside. The food here is also impressive, and their desserts are to die for. I'd definitely come here :]]
YUM – For being a diner, this place has some great food. I love coming here in the summer because they ave cozy outdoor seating with umbrellas. Defintiely a great place to grab a late night or early breakfast
good Diner – The food is not bad for a diner. But deserts are the Best! You should stop by and get one to go if you don`t want to have a big meal inside. Just ask somebody which one is the freshest because they make them couple of times a week. They also have a good breakfast.
Worning! Owners are real asholes, don`t talk to them!
Best diner in Brooklyn! Great food, great scene! – We started going to this diner one summer since they have this huge outdoor deck overlooking the water - perfect for the summer! We've been going back ever since. Great food - so many options and they're all delicious - breakfast through dinner. The place is always clean, the waitstaff is neat and seem very professional and helpful. Best of all, they're open 24-7. Did I mention all the home-made dessert? We learned that they have their own bakery and the dessert selection is amazing - definitely have the strawberry cheesecake - spectacular! Highly recommended.
NOT RECOMMENDED – El Greco is like a nasty neighbor that you wish would just move out of the neighborhood. Its been around for way too long and has changed ownership many times. The food has never been good and the service has never been good either. The place is filthy and had been shut down by the Dept of Health more than once , reopened but hasnt improved at all. Its a fabulous location but this place doent deserve to be there. I have had many foreign objects in my food including hair, insects, a cigarette butt in my salad and a piece of eaten meat on a sandwich.
I had brought it to the attention of the owners and they dismissed me and snickered like it was humorous.
I would strongly recommend not patronizing this establishment. Many diners have gotten sick there including myself.
