    The waiter is why I am giving Michael Jordan's two stars. Lackluster service for such an upscale restaurant. Both sides dishes we ordered were almost warm . Who likes cold mashed potatoes? He almost didn't ask us if we wanted drinks, we had to ask. We got our meals and were finished at least 15 minutes before he returned . Finally got our dessert, another 20 minutes before we got our tab. We had to flag down a busboy to get our waiter.

    We booked at Michael Jordan's online not really knowing what to expect. Our experience was awesome. The restaurant is in The Grand Central Terminal so the atmosphere is awesome. The food was incredible. I highly recommend the bone in rib eye. The service was excellent and very friendly. It was a wonderful experience using OpenTable to book my reservation and will be using it often. The bar area at Michael Jordan's was excellent as well. Very good service and again the atmosphere is incredible. I highly recommend Michael Jordan's Steakhouse.

    Food was good, but all was served a la carte. As a result, the price for the meal was extraordinarily high. And, although we were only a party of three, a 20% tip was added to the bill. The cost of the meal was too expensive for what we received.

    We went to Michael Jordan's Steakhouse as it had been recommended by a friend, and we are so glad we came. We had an early dinner here as we were going to see a show in Broadway. When we arrived the hostesses were lovely and sent us straight to our table. At that time in the evening it was very quiet which was nice. We had a table right over the balcony looking over the concourse of grand Central station which was wonderful to just watch the world go by. Our waiter was very attentive and quick as we told him we had to be out by a certain time. We both ordered the New York strip steak which was both enormous and delicious! We had a really nice time here, it was a lovely start to our evening and we would definitely recommend this place!

    First of all, booking via Open Table worked very well. I got a call a day earlier to confirm my reservation and an SMS on the same day reminding me. Overall, the restaurant was good. Steak was tasty and very well prepared. Service was good as well; they gave us plenty of attention. It's located inside the Central Station, so ambient sound can be quite high in peak hours. We went on a Sunday night, so that wasn't a problem. My overall rating would be "Very Good" if it wasn't for the conditions of the restrooms. They were not as clean as one would expect on a restaurant of this category. Also, the restrooms are shared between men and women (one at a time, obviously), which I don't think is appropriate (women need cleaner conditions).

    Dissapointed
    Dined on 9/13/2014
    Service was slow and had to waive to even get tea refills. Lobster was good but steak was a poor cut of meat, tough and grizzly. Was not cooked as requested, sent it back and it was wrong again. Could not eat it and just left on plate. Told waiter and he said sorry and something about difficulty with chef. Manager came out and offered a drink (Although we were not drinking). He did not offer or adjust the bill so it was and expensive, poor experience. Michael should take his name off of it. There are many good restaurant in Manhattan. That is not one of them.

    Booked a table for three. The service was outstanding, with waiters and busmen attentive and accommodating. When we commented on how delicious the sauce was for the shrimp cocktail, a small dish of it was delivered to the table. We also savored the herb-roasted mushrooms and black truffle creamed spinach. My two guests enjoyed a filet mignon and boneless rib eye. Both steaks were cooked perfectly. My prime rib sandwich was disappointing; the meat was overcooked and overwhelmed by a huge bun. But the horseradish sauce that accompanied it was lovely.

    I discovered this restaurant because Nelson De Mille's characters used it in his novel The Panther .... no regrets at all. The NY Strip was fantastic - cooked to prefection, tender .. and plenty of it!! The location is really good fun - a table overlooking the Grand Central concourse was unique. The staff were friendly and helpful making sure we got the best table available. A really nice experience in a great setting.

    The steak was dry, flavorless and tough. Service was lacking. The waiter misheard and failed to confirm our steak orders; entrees took 45 minutes to come out; and our waiter was unavailable the entire time, even though the restaurant was virtually empty.

    This was not my first time eating at this steak house so I already knew the food would be great. I arrived early to spend time at the bar before my guest arrived. Although the bar did not have my favorite drink in stock, I was happy with the substitute that was offered. When my Guest arrived the head of the house personally escorted us to our table. The table had a beautiful view from the balcony of the art and architecture of historic Grand Central. The wait staff was knowledgeable and helpful with the menu orders. Of course the food was great. After my guess left, I spent the remainder of the evening at the bar where I really got to talk to the restaurant staff. I think I've found a new watering hole as the cowboys used to say.

    We were placed in an area away from the nice tables. The restaurant was out of some of the wine on the wine list. My salad was never delivered and it appeared as though all of the waiters were concerned about the lack of organization. For a relatively nice restaurant, the overall experience was terrible. The waiters and other help tried, but there was obviously a problem.

    Of course the big draw is the fact that the restaurant is located in Grand Central Station - pricey for everyday, but really good steak-house food and a great place to bring out of town guests. They haven't quite tackled the heating/cooling situation since they are situated on a balcony open to the entire station, but, if you get the right table the view of the wonderful GCT ceiling takes your mind off the temperature. My party ordered steaks and chops with a variety of sides - all very good. The one odd note was that even though they featured a number of a la mode desserts they had run out of vanilla ice-cream - not acceptable!

    I eat here 3-4 times a month. You can't beat the location for midtown east and Connecticut commuters, plus the food/service is always great. Their fast track menu is good (but I wish it would change more often) - currently, the RibEye steak is a perfect size for lunch, and the Gespatcho soup is VERY good with a hint of spiciness. Grand Central Station is also one of my favorite buildings in NYC - so I always have something to talk to my guests about when I need small-talk.

    When you ordre à main course (for example a steak), it comes with nothing else un the plate. Just the steak. If you want vegetables, they charge you 9 dollars for each but they don't tell you that you have more than enough to share... for 3 !!! Just for veggies, we paid over 36 $ to leave more than half !!! I really wasn't happy that our waiter did not advise us. Please be aware !

    Stay away! The best part of the meal was the bread and the strawberry short cake. Everything else was horrible. The meat were a cheap cut and were overcooked. I ordered med rare on the rare side and my boyfriend ordered med rare. Both steaks were medium to med well and covered in so much pepper, I could barely eat it. I ordered sautéd green beans and they came out steamed. The meal took forever and we had to order more bread in the middle because we were so hungry. The portions were tiny. You could see directly into the kitchen b/c the double doors were left open the whole time. Final insult, they charged me extra for a birthday cake we did not order (I asked just to write something on the plate of the included dessert).

    As it was our first time at Michael Jordan's Steak House, I and my friends did not expect the food at Michael Jordan's to be delightfully delicious. We certainly enjoyed our lunch with a nice view of GCT (courtesy of the Maitre D'). [My only disappointment was the Mojito, which had an excess of lime and had very little of rum.]

    I have walked by Michael Jordan's Restaurant for many years unsure if I would like the ambiance of the restaurant. I was pleasantly surprised that with all of the hustle and bustle of Grand Central Station you can still feel a sense of privacy . The service was very good as well as the food. I would return to Michael Jordan's Steak House.

    Went for lunch during restaurant week. Great selection for lunch, had excellent boneless rib eye. Great seats overlooking Grand Central, not too noisy for location. No choice for side, came with fresh corn salad (kids didn't like peppers in salad). Had to order side of creamed spinach, a la carte. Desserts and salads great. Daughter loved fresh mozzarella with tomato and balsamic. Service was excellent.

    Thought I'd try Michael Jordan's for Rest Week. The lunch menu offered appealed to me. Right off the bat I almost did not stay because all tables are on the open balcony and there is very little air conditioning. Pleasant greeting by all staff even though I was a lone female. The mozzarella & tomato salad was fair; I've had better quality elsewhere. Had to send the sliced roast beef back;very fatty. Second sandwich was better but was well done instead of medium rare, as I had ordered it. However, I will say that it was tasty. Good size portions. The pineapple with vanilla ice cream was refreshing. The staff were all very accommodating and genuinely wanted to please me. The Maitre D was apologetic about the meat.
