A nice change for the modular seriesWhat a way to begin 2018! Got this beauty of a set first thing this morning and wow am I impressed! Just finished building it. I saw the first pictures of it online a month ago and I knew as soon as I saw it I had to have it.. having previously built the BrickBank and last year's assembly square I was a little concerned however at the style of this set, turns out that it is not such a major issue after all and it fits in with the existing modulars. The era now has gone into the 1950's somewhat and yes the minifigures have expressions on their faces now but I only see that as a good thing.. let's be honest, everything around us evolves all the time so why should the modulars be any different?? The design of the building itself is a work of genius! The creator (Mike Psiaki) has captured the look of a vintage 50's jukebox absolutely perfectly, it couldn't be any better than what it is.. the curves, the colours, the details.. the list is endless.. everything about this set just hits the right mark. I could go as far to say that this is as good if not better than the coveted Parisian Restaurant. However my favourite of all about it is placement.. the fact that there is a Gym upstairs where you go to get healthy and yet downstairs in the Diner they are serving fried bacon, pancakes and milkshakes etc.. that whole Lego modular comedy placement is there and I love it. Yet Another excellent set from Lego! Well done and bring on 2019's build now!

Let Us Go Out Tonight!I love the details that Lego put into this modular set and I hope they keep this up. I decided to start my own Lego City and hope to add more modular sets in the future. The Diner had some unique building techniques that I found interesting and a little challenging at times. I find it funny that Lego included a gym, but I guess Lego figured if you go to a greasy spoon that you should work it off afterwards. The recording studio was an unique addition as well and is well detailed. The one gripe that I have is that I wish the cups had SNOT , so that would stay in one place when the set is moved from one place they would.
I usually don't comment on playability, but the Diner and the Palace Cinema to me would have plenty of playability for children. I even find myself at 53 posing the minifigures in order to take unique pictures which brings me back to my own childhood.
I recommend to anyone who only has money for one modular building to purchase the Diner first. You won't be disappointed.

FantasticThis is the first modular building I have ever purchased and was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed building it. there's so many little details that just really make the building. And it has alot of play features that my daughter loves she couldn't wait for me to finish making it so we could start playing with. Over all a great build and a great building.

Okay, but odd building techniquesThis is a very beautiful build, but it does have some odd building techniques that leave things loose to bounce around on the first level, e.g. the coffee mugs just lay on the bar counter top, the top hot cake is not attached at all (how is the skating waitress going to move around a not drop the hot cake on the floor?), and the camera on the bench, why is this even in the first floor, it is shown on the cover being held by the record producer! They could have put a SNOT on the bar top to hold the mugs, and they could have done the hot cakes in dark tan and included a dark tan round 2x2 with open stud (P/N 18674) to hold the hot cake in place. The camera should be in step 4.
The gym and recording studio each have two windows that just flop around. The look nice with the slight angle that is designed into them, but they come out far too easily.
The second floor stairwell does not look "safe" (yes, I know this is a toy, but if I were a mini figure, I would not walk up those!) Plus it was a pain in the butt to assemble, the technic axle kept falling out!
Also, the downspout just ends at the top of the first floor, looking as if it will drench anyone below.
It seems like this set is not as polished as I have come to expect, it appears rushed to production. Should have spent some more time cooking this one up.
Torn between recommending this one or not, but because of all the issues mentioned above, I would not recommend this one unless you like to be flustered and like loose parts bouncing around in your models.
