Dine under the stars
It's located on balcony level of Grand Central Station. We could hear jazz standards coming from musicians nearby. The food and service were nice too.

Fantastic spot on the indoor
Fantastic spot on the indoor balcony of the huge, gorgeous, teeming Grand Central Terminal hall. VERY, and ONLY New York. Great spot for natives and to take visitors. Food really delicate.

Hele leuke ervaring. Midden
Hele leuke ervaring. Midden in het station maar een super luxe uitstraling. Eten was in één woord fantastisch! Hou er rekening mee dat je ook voor een fles water betaalt. (10 dollar)

Mother's Day dilema
How do you offer reservations & then have no wait staff till 1/2 hours after the reservation time??? The white w/merange frostingcake is always the best part of the meal.

We love Cipriani Dolci, and the setting on the loggia at Grand Central cant be beat. The international staff and menu are reminiscent of other Cipriani restaurants, but to sit and sip champagne and linger over an afternoon respite is just pure luxury. Its consistent and entertaining every time.

Perfect place to 4 an out of towner
Beauty of GCT is often overlooked, with this view your out of town guests will appreciate the magnifigance! And it's great if you meeting people coming in from westchester of Connecticut bc they don't have to navigate the subway.

Grand Central Terminal Dining
If you want to eat a good Italian meal and like railway stations then this is the place in NYC. The restaurant is on the West balcony overlooking the main concourse. This means it is,of course, quite noisy but not so much that you can't easily have a conversation. We had the fixed price lunch during the NY food fortnight in June and it was great value! The service is good and the food excellent.

Fine dining at Grand Central
It was fun people watching while having a great meal!

I like Cipriani Dolce. Everything was great except that there was no one that was greeting us when we came . We were standing there and waiting for a staff to come and show us to a table. Besides that i like it. Will highly recommend this place.

Girls Weekend Treat
I took my younger sister to NYC as a surprise present for her eighteenth birthday. As it was her first time there, I tried to make it special and memorable by visiting scenic spots and indulging in the full NYC experience. My favorite part was the location- overlooking Grand Central Station. It was so cool to be eating in the middle of such a landmark and see it in action. As for the food- we went during Restaurant Week so there was only a limited menu. The choices were very widely pleasing (Caprese salad, ravioli, spaghetti), but didn't make for a very unique dining experience. The food there was no more exciting than the same dishes from the Olive Garden (save plating and service). Overall, the service was good we did enjoy our meal.

Good food in an energetic setting
Headline says it all - Cipriani - Dolci overlooks Grand Central Terminal. Its actually quite fun to watch the mayhem pass by beneath you as you sip a prosecco and dine on good Italian food.
Space is tight, so I can't imagine big groups would do well here.
Definitely worth a try whether for a quick drink at the bar or a leisurely dinner.

It was a good deal for restaurant
It was a good deal for restaurant week but seemed expensive for being a balcony spot above grand central. Tables were tight and there really wasn't much ambiance. Servers were attentive and food was good.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Their restaurant menu was the best ever. We loved everything.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Catch up with co-worker....
This was a first for both me and my co-worker.... Enjoyed a great evening, food was excellent, service could not have been better, and the ambiance was perfect!!! Will definitely go back....

Grand Central and Cipriani, great!
Consistent food....Cipriani service, and an iconic location; always a treat.

We were greeted and seated
We were greeted and seated very quickly. We had a great table right at the railing with a fantastic view of the station. We began our meal with a classic Bellini for which Cipriani is famous. It was delicious but the price of $16 each was out of line. We were lucky to be there for Restaurant Week and so we were able to take advantage of the $25 lunch offering. The food was good but not great and would have been grossly overpriced if it was not Restaurant week. The service was friendly, cordial and helpful. The experience of sitting on that balcony overlooking the station was exciting and memorable.

Convenient place to meet old friend
Grand Cantral Station may not be the place for a romantic or quiet dinner - but it is a great place to meet old friends --- convenient for everyone and great people watching
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Its in Grand Central station on the balcony level, so you get the NYC vibes and experience but your not at the center of it. From the balcony you can enjoy your meal and views. Loved it The service was great, the food was delicious.

Lunch meeting at Grand Central in NYC overlooking the city at work is amazing! The food is very good however the service at this location is in serious need of new management and training. Very slow - we were made to wait at least 10 minutes for water and a waiter, and the Host is very cold almost rude never made eye contactor a word to us- just gave our name and he lead us to the table for service...Look at your customers and greet them!!!!

Place has a nice vibe and wait staff were great and GStation was cool for first visit

This is a wonderful restaurant. The food is excellent and served in a professional manner. The staff is cordial and helpful. The atmosphere is quiet and romantic, despite the restaurant being in the midst of hundreds of fast moving, often confused travelers. I come to this restaurant on dates and for private conferences. I would eat here every day if I had the resources!

Good food & service- But-----
Very good food and service, albeit pricey, but in a fast food quality location on a balcony in Grand Central Station. It was fun to watch the hustle and bustle of Grand Central, but otherwise a disappointing location for the price.

Great view of Grand Central
Great view of Grand Central Hall!! Rack of lamb especially tender and tasty. Pricy.

Hosting Out of Towners? Must Do
I scored mucho points for taking visitors here. Suave points for passing the crowds of tourists snapping photos on the stairs of Grand Central and walking right up to the stand and seating almost immediately. The view of the concourse is great, sitting looking up instead of standing down there getting bumped or pickpocketed.
The wines listed on the menu are just a handful; ask for a wine list. Surprisingly, it had French wines - some were priced less than their Italians and Californians. Value for money with $40-50 bottles. The food is overpriced ($25-30 for an appetizer?!), but you're paying for the location and view. Chef's Special is a prix fixe 3 course menu (deal). Prosciutto (sp?) w/melon FAB, and tiramisu a must! Bon Appetit

Right at Grand Central Station-it makes it a great place to meet and eat! The food is excellent though for vegetarians there are few choices. But what they do have is delightful! The service is great! You can count on making your train.

The Balcony with a View
Nothing beats the view of Grand Central Terminal. The ceiling, the bustle. Sitting on the balcony at Cipriani Dolce is an amazing opportunity to watch the hustle of GCT while being far enough away from the crowds to still have a comfortable conversation.

Impress out of town clients
The venue for Cipriani-Dolci's is very unique. Situated on the West Balcony inside Grand Central Station. A very impressive location for a client lunch. It's in an open space, with an unusual view of the main lobby, with all the busy happenings of New York commuters. The Cipriani Club Sandwich was delicious and a delicate surprise combination of BLT and Chicken Salad. My guests had pasta dishes that were very pleasing and tasty.

Grand Central Amazing
I think this place has the most random interesting experience in NYC. The food is great and the service has been pretty bad every time I have been there, but I would still highly recommend. But it is so cool that I would recommend it as one of my all time favorite places in NYC to go by myself or for lunch for business or with friends. There is nothing like it in the world and looking right down into the historic Grand Central Stations is amazing. It is the same menu as all of the Cipriani locations which is great and very well done.

Little gem in the train station
Great service, great food. Best veal chop I had in a long time.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful as Always
I try to go to Cipriani Dolce at least once a week before my train ride home. It's perfect for a quick business meeting, drink and snack. The bar menu is recently updated and it is all good to share.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were visiting NYC for Thanksgiving. Our after the play dinner was enjoyed by all. Since it was a drizzly evening, taxis were scarce causing us to be a bit late for the reservation but the host was very gracious and prepared an excellent table with a great view from the balcony. The ambiance, scrumptious pasta, wine, and a Bellini hit the spot. Would definitely visit again!
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Sitting high above the main terminal at Grand Central you really feel like part if the city.
The food was delicious and the service was attentive but not overbearing. We had a wonderful experience.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent food matched by excellent service. The ambiance is quite unique. It all come together to make the night quite memorable.
