About The City Diner

The Food

Every item on our menu is created from scratch from Chef Ed’s recipes, which make for a completely unique, always fresh dining experience. The traditional Americana diner experience is coupled with American, European, Mediterranean, Latin, and Asian influences.

We are all about Cleveland, which is why we are proud to do business with local suppliers, whenever possible. Mazzone & Sons Bakery, Lou’s Sausage, and Cake Royale to name a few.

The Staff

The City Diner is staffed with friendly, accommodating, well-trained Service Professionals, and the diversity of our employees is expressed in our menu’s diverse offerings. We train our staff to deliver and exceed the highest of our customer’s expectations, which helps us to achieve the Company’s Vision of providing “Great Food for a Great City!”

The guest’s experience will be the highest priority to every staff member. That’s why we take time to train our “front of the house” staff and “back of the house” staff on recipe knowledge, customer service, and station production standard benchmarks for taste and consistency.
