Very good steakhouse/novel location
First time visit. Dinner meeting with European and US colleagues, got into one of their small semi-private tables. My European visitors like the food and found the location inside Grand Central novel and fun. Great ambience for first time visitors to New York. No complaints

The Gorgonzola fondue and garlic bread was incredible!!!

Good food, lovely service
The food was really very nice, beautifully plated, all items very fresh and appealing portions, enough without being gargantuan.The service was fast and efficient, however once they knew we were not catching a train all became more relaxed. If we asked for something it came immediately. We were very impressed. it was a Sunday so the station was quiet but still most interesting. Good for tourists and an added bonus was that we could easily carry on a conversation as it was not too loud. Nicest experience in Manhattan restaurant in a long time.

Very good food and great service
Happy to recommend the Michael Jordan Steakhouse to anyone. We chose one of the modestly sized main courses (daily cuts steak) and it was excellent. Observing other dishes going to other tables they mostly looked fairly huge which we find off-putting. The service was outstanding however and the restaurant went from nearly empty at 12:15 to almost full less than 30mins later. Lunch is clearly a time to book ahead.
Would return to Michael Jordans without hesitation but would always check the portion sizes in future.
Why do restaurants in the United States still give everyone so much food they have to take at least half of it home in a box?? Seems like such a waste as most will end up being thrown away.

Attentive service, great atmosphere
It is a challenge to have a light lunch at MJ's but if you go for soup (Gazpacho - which was delicious) and a Caesar (also perfectly prepared) you can enjoy the great service and ambience in a lower calorie way. Great business lunch place, even though the ambient noise is loud.

The steak house fare at MIchael
The steak house fare at MIchael Jordan's was great, but the spectacular moment came with the gorgonzola fondue. Heavenly!
The site overlooking the Grand Central pedestrians in teh Main Concourse also is great fun.

Great food, fun spot
Eating great food in a nice atmosphere with Grand Central as a backdrop, how could you go wrong? Food is pricey but the quality is worth it. The tuna steak was perfect. Highly recommend for a special occasion.

Steak at Grand Central
one of the best things about Jordans is the location. We always try to do lunch, as that is when the station is really buzzing. The steaks are always good, Side dishes to recommend are the sweet potato fries and the creamed spinach. The $25 lunch express is great value.

Wonderful food experience
My family had the opportunity to visit Michael Jordan Steakhouse thinking it was restaurant week. But our experience was absolutely wonderful. The food was delicious each person's meal was delicious and well prepared. This was a wonderful experience I would definitely return.

quick service, nice to eat, talk and catch a train. Lobster roll was outstanding!!

The grand central terminal is an amazing place and when I made the reservation I did not imagine that the restaurant is inside de terminal, that was a awesome!!!! Is a excellent place for a romantic and delicious dinner ^_~

Wow, I am mad at myself for
Wow, I am mad at myself for waiting so long to have dinner at your restaurant. My husband and I sat a a table in the bar overlooking the whole scene but it felt so private. This view never gets old even after 20 years of commuting and the food was really good!
Our steaks were perfectly cooked.
The entire staff was top shelf. We will be back with friends.

My family and I were in New York City for the weekend and decided to dine at Michael Jordan's Steakhouse in Grand Central Station. I was a good choice! The steak was delicious and the atmosphere and location of the restaurant made it feel extra special. I would definitely recommend it.

People watching included
We went to this restaurant during restaurant week and was not disappointed . The three course dinner was excellent . I appreciated that the portion sizes were smaller this suited our appetite as most steak restaurants in NYC give you enormous portions that you end up taking half away with you! The staff were curious and attentive. And overall we enjoyed the meal but the best thing about this restaurant is its position . In Grand Central Station overlooking the main concourse ,what a fantastic spot to people watch!!

Lovely dinner for two
My boyfriend and I chose Michael Jordan's Steakhouse for NYC Restaurant Week. The Restaurant Week menu was very good. I had the salad, Rib Eye and mashed potatoes; my boyfriend had the Rib Eye, sweet potato fries and broccoli. We shared the crab cake and the garlic bread with gorgonzola cheese. Excellent steak, tender and tasty. My only complaint was I asked for my steak to be well done and it was medium. I should have sent it back, but I didn't want to make a fuss. The restaurant is located on the balcony overlooking Grand Central and but still felt it to be intimate and reserved. Staff was very friendly and prompt, nice waiter. I would highly recommend this restaurant for all kinds of occasions.

I visited from the UK, this was the restaurant of choice for my 30th birthday and it was fantastic, best piece of steak I have ever eaten.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Surprisingly good food
We chose this restaurant because of its location inside Grand Central terminal, not expecting that the food would be great. We were pleasantly surprised by the meals that we ate. The restaurant week menu was very good, and our only disappointment was that they had run out of the strawberry shortcake dessert.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We finally dined at MJSH during restaurant week. I ordered the porterhouse steak which was good however there were several fatty pieces I could not eat. The mashed potatoes were yummy. The service was adequate. The view from the balcony seating was great. The pineapple dessert was so tasty!! The only thing I did not like was the prices on the wine list and there was no happy hour specials. I don't think I have ever been to a spot without happy hour deals. Kind of a off. It was a good experience and will probably go back. We check places out during restaurant week to test them out before paying fully price for a meal.

CUT OF THE NIGHT
This was the first time my hubby & I tried this steakhouse. We were seated right on time for our reservation. The server was right on top of everything! We both tried the "cut of the night" which was the sirloin steak ordered medium-rare. He got steak fries & I opted for sweet potatoes fries. We both devoured our meals as the steak was cooked to perfection! He enjoyed a couple of beers while I sipped some pinot grigio. We look forward to our next dinner at Michael Jordan's sometime in the future!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was fantastic. The serving size of the meals were also fantastic. The service was also very good.

MJ's is Always Good
We have been to MJ's Steakhouse at Mohegan Sun many times and it's always first rate. This was our first time at the Grand Central location and it was very good. The setting is terrific for people watching. My steak was not up to par, but otherwise everything was great, as usual. This is certainly the best restaurant in the Grand Central area.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was amazing with the exception of the waiter. He was no friendly and not engaged in the serving process or even taking our order. He could use some more customer service training.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love Michael Jordan's!
I love going to Michael Jordan's for their steak - it's perfectly cooked every time! The mashed potatoes were delicious as were the special sauteed onions they made just for me :) The french fries, however, were a little hard and burnt. All in all, the food is great.
It's located right inside beautiful Grand Central - perfect for visitors to see the history of the place and have a great meal at the same time.

My Boyfriend's birthday
I surprised my boyfriend for his birthday with reservations at this restaurant. Once we were seated it took our waiter quite some time to notice us. when he did comeover he apologized because he forgot our table was his. After taking our orders, he then disappeared to have a conversation with another waiter. It was as if he kept forgetting about us. Overall the food was good, but the service needs some work. The prices weren't too bad either. Most importantly my honey was surprised and satisfied and thats all that mattered. I would recommend this restaurant, and I would return again.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had lunch at the Michael Jordan's The Steak House N.Y.C. and I didn't know that the tables are set up inside the Grand Central Station. The food was good, though as a Swiss snob I couldn't really detect any of the advertised Gruyere in the hash browns. The steak as part of the steak and eggs was quite tender but did have more fat than I prefer.
The service was fine, though a bit slow in getting me my ice tea.
For dinner they apparently open up an additional section that may be less in the open.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
this was our second time eating at Michael Jordan's you are outstanding
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best steak ever
Our rib eye for two was perfect, and the truffled spinach was outstanding too. The Caesar salad was OK, but we wouldn't order it again.

I had a great experience at the MJ Steakhouse. I went on a Sunday evening so Grand Central
Was nice and quiet. My table overlooked GC and it was a wonderful
Setting to have a nice glass of wine and steak. The food was
Great. The service was impeccable. I would definitely return.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The good and table were excellent. The view was well appreciated and I was able to get the table I requested. I would return and recommend.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious but not friendly.
The food and ambiance was fantastic! Our server was not. He seemed not to be happy to have been stuck with our table and was not friendly at all. He did not smile one time the entire evening, and seemed very annoyed whenever we asked for something. This dinner was a special occasion and we were all made to feel like we were just a bother to this man the whole time. It's sad that this waiter's attitude will weigh heavily on whether or not I will ever return or suggest this restaurant to anyone. Our bus boy on the other hand was more helpful and friendly than our waiter, and so were the hostesses.

Good Steaks, Great Location
The steaks are very good, and the location right in Grand Central is really great for a special occasion!
Prices are adequate for a steakhouse, and the food is not overpriced due to the location
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Still the Best!
I had not eaten at MIchael Jordan's in Grand Central Station for a number of years but found the food and service as good as always. My companion ordered Popcorn Shrimp for lunch, and I had the Nantucket Lobster Roll. Both entrees were well-prepared and delicious. All members of the staff were courteous and efficient. In addition to the excellent food, there was something almost magical about sitting at a table in the north wing of Grand Central and gazing out at the sea of humanity passing through the main lobby area of the station. The atmosphere added a special touch.

Great for any occasion
You cannot go wrong! Beautiful setting. Excellent food and service. A regular for me.

Had a wonderful time and meal with great friends on the platform overlooking Grand Central Station!
My ribeye was vey good, one of the best I've had. When in NYC take a stop by and see what they have going on.

Quiet right in Grand Central
Always pleasantly surprised by the excellence of the kitchen. Lunch on the late side is actually peaceful--there's a hum from the main concourse, and that's it!
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good experience the $25 lunch good value I rate it a4 out of 5 ambience and service a5 my friend had never been to grand central so the food and view from Jordan's balcony was a real treat for her the shooting star pino noir was great I hope to come back

Perfect for our sports birthday guy
My wife and I were in New York City at the same time as our son and his girlfriend. We celebrated his birthday here and it was a great meal. Right inside Grand Central Station, but a moderate noise level allowed for great dinner conversation while people watching. The food was superb and the wait staff was excellent but not overbearing. The women had the filet minion, I had the bone-in rib-eye and my son had the bone-in New York strip. All were excellent. Sides included salads, Micheal's Mac 'n Cheese and the Asparagus. All cooked to perfection with great seasoning. The chocolate birthday cake complete with lighted candle was a pleasant and unexpected surprise. Great Dinner!

Night out in NYC
This is a unique spot - high above Grand Central with great views below onto the main concourse - very special for that reason. Food was great - particularly my burger, but perhaps somewhat pricey for what it is. Service very average - shame because it is such a great location. Would definitely recommend for out-of-towners - took my mother and 17 year old daughter, so fun for all ages!

Business Lunch Winner
Perfect for a business lunch. Relatively quiet although you hear the hum of Grand Central. Table cloths give it a high end vibe. And the new $25 fast track lunch is a great offering.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Could not have been more pleased!
Great food, wine and being on the balcony overlooking Grand Central having dinner during rush hour was the icing on the cake!! I would not miss this if you are in the city, even if it is just a stop at the bar for a cocktail and app.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food amazing views
This place is still superb. Three of us for a business lunch and not a morsel was left on anyone's plate. We all had fish and sides. Great setting in GCT, just a little noisy but that shouldn't be a surprise.

My partner and I came here for thanksgiving day dinner and it was lovely. Staff were very helpful towards us and gave their recommendations on the food. With it being in grand central station it has a very nice warm feeling to it aswell allowing you to watch people coming and going. Would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Best Porterhouse I ever had
Excellent steaks and service. Loved the Grand Central Station ambience-the wait staff is phenomenal-they are right there-even when you go to pour a refill onn your bottled water-they are their to serve.

Lunch at Grand Central
We asked for and received a table overlooking the concourse. But we felt rushed and pressured into eating and ordering and indeed finishing our meal. We were eventually asked to move to a table on the inside because they had people wanting tables by the concourse. I booked the table a month ago and did not expect to be asked to move to accommodate other people. So next time we just sit on an inside table and enjoy the food. It's good value and well presented. this is my fourth visit.
12/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great spot overlooking GCT
One of my favorite easy spots in midtown- good cocktails and food with a great view overlooking GCT. Prefer the tables in the lounge area for a quick bite and drink. Server was very accommodating and friendly (if sometimes a little slow when it's busy- but that's understandable)
The shrimp cocktail, gorgonzola bread app and caesar salad dishes are favorites. The guacomole app is new on the menu and also good. Definitely recommend MJ's for a bite while waiting for a train or cocktails/app while in midtown.
12/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was an amazing experience. The food was delicious I can't even describe it. Service was great ambiance was great definitely going back. Thank you.
