Really great Pancakes and French Fries!!! The only reason I don't go there more often is that there is no free wi-fi (according to an internet search). I don't remember if I saw any signs to say otherwise, but the next time I go, I will find out and will definitely come more often if there is in fact free wi-fi!

A terrible experience not particularly for the food which was average but for the treatment meted by the staff including the manger. We were completely ignored from the time we entered the diner by the staff until on our way out. We are stared at and not greeted unlike other customers which I am presuming was due to our appearance being a proud Sikh family from India. The manager shamelessly looked at us and turned himself away while he continued to greet other customers. Never again and will extend my feigns about the diner to others.

The food here is average - it's not really any better or worse than diners nearby. The one exception I found to this is when ordering mozzarella sticks - what I got tasted old, stale, and freezerburned. The prices are considerably higher for many of the items. I don't see the point in paying 25% more for my food when I can get the same type of atmosphere, service, and taste for less by traveling another minute down Hempstead Turnpike.

Service is very good here, and the menu choices are good, as well as delicious. The mashed potatoes here are the real deal and should not be missed. You'll taste the butter in the mixed vegetables or string beans - one of the few diners you'll find with truly great side dishes as well as main dishes. Terrific seafood dishes, like shrimp scampi that tastes like shrimp and isn't rubbery, sole that is wonderful, scallops that are delicious. I hesitate to rate a diner as a 5 because I reserve that for high-end food, but if I were ranking only diners, they would definitely score a 5.

Not what it used to be.......Have been going here for over 10 years and it has always been one of my favorite diners. However, since the latest renovation a couple of years ago, it simply isn't the same anymore. Let me start by saying the waitstaff is incredible as always. However, that is the only great thing left about this diner. The latest renovation has created an atmosphere of a high-end ultra-lounge. Don't know why they did that since they are a diner and not a restaurant. The prior art deco theme was fine and suitable for a diner. The prices seemed to have jumped up since the renovation as well and the portions have shrunk (do they actually think they are a restaurant?). The quality of the food has also declined: adequate at best. Have tried to give them the benefit of the doubt many times since the renovation, but cannot do that anymore. Sorry to say I will not be returning to the Colony.
