    Thoroughly enjoyed Jordan's. The food was excellent with generous portions. The services was top notch and friendly. It was a special occasion dinner, we requested a table overlooking the concourse - the view was terrific! A definite NYC experience not to be missed.

    Jordan's is set in the spectacular main hall at Grand Central Station. A very warm welcome, brisk attentive and unobtrusive service, with delicious well cooked food. Don't miss their "signature" NY Strip steak - as good as meat gets. Everything about our dining experience was positive - We love MJ@GCSNY

    Although convenient to meet or say farewell to travelers at GC the food and service needs major adjustments. Several mishaps in order taking and having to flag down servers to correct them became laughable quickly. Food quality was only fair but portions were adequate. Ambiance is notable if seated along the railing... View of the hustle and bustle of commuters and the like is never tiring.

  • GREAT STEAK but they RUSH YOU OUT!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 6/3/2014
    I went with my grilfriend who has never been to Michael Jordan's. She likes her steak very soft, tender, juicy and medium cooked, so I told her that Michael Jordan cooks excellent steaks. I was right, she enjoyed her Filet Mignon and so did I. The only complaint she gave me was that they rush you out of the restaurant. The bill was put on our table immediately after we ate our dinner and we did not take any deserts. The waiter came around twice to take our bill. My girlfriend ate everything and was just digesting her food, she ate too much, she did not want to be rushed out of the restaurant.

    I go here at least 3 times a month if not more because of the service, location and quality of food. You can't beat the location in midtown for proximity to everything and ease for everyone to get here because it's so central. The food is great - typical steakhouse; I only gave it 4 stars (not 5) because the menu doesn't change much. One of my favorite things is the fast track menu which gets me in and out in under an hour and is reasonably priced. My secret tip: ask for a table at the edge with the view over the concourse but you have to reserve in advance because it's popular, perfect for people watching.

    Reliably good, and the salmon is also wonderful. The feeling of openness above Grand Central's main concourse is a delight and, surprise!, not noisy -- more of a city hum.

    This was my second time to MJ's in 2 weeks. The "Fast Track" lunch is a good deal. The second time the steak was not great - with big pieces of warm fat and not charred as advertised. But still a good deal. You CAN hear your table mate and GCT cannot be beat for the view. I will be back and hope for better luck.

    Great place for the stereotypical busy, always on the go New Yorker. The lunch menu has a message saying to let the staff know if you have to catch a train. We took them up on this and they delivered! Full course lunch prepared to perfection and I caught my train!

    If you're looking for a convenient location - this is it. And you'll pay for it. I was enticed by the special lunch menu....but at the end of lunch, the tab of $90 for two people was much more than I had anticipated. My meal was tasty - but I think not worth the price tag. Sorry, Michael.

    The food was delicious but service was a little slow. After dining at Michael Jordan's steakhouse at Mohegan Sun we were thrilled to go back closer to home. Unfortunately we rate the NYC much lower than CT. We LOVED the view in Grand Central Station better than the food.

  • MJ's - As Flexible as a Rock

    Dined on 5/8/2014
    I remember going to Michael Jordan's when it first opened. It was a good restaurant in a spectacular space. 10+ years later, I went back. It was this past week. What a change. Oddly, it became a chain restaurant without having all the baggage and locations that makes a chain steakhouse difficult to pull off. The kitchen or management was inflexible. I asked to substitute my fries for a baked potato on the lobster roll only to be met with "we don't permit substitutions". Regardless, the food was eh. Usually, that statement is followed by a ". . . but I will speak to the chef and do it for you". Not here. in one of NYC's most beautiful settings - Grand Central Station - MJ's has become a tourist, Disney World like restaurant. Boo!

    Sitting on the north balcony above the Great Hall of Grand Central Station gives you a birds eye view of one of the greatest spaces in the World! Add to that the great service and food served in classic steak house style. No frills here just really high quality food no matter what you order at prices that don't break your budget. I come here every chance I get and am wowed every time.

    went in and couldn't get the balcony view. The waitress was nice enough to let us sit right adjacent to the balcony end and we had an awesome view of the entire grand central. After my date and i talked and ate, we just needed to stop what we were doing and absorb the beauty of the view. The filet mignon was pretty good.

    was looking for some decent steak within walkin distance of my hotel on W34 st. having already fallen for Grand Central as a unique place to visit decided why not eat there too!Interesting combo - formal dining with a working class noise as the background. ok bottle of red and went for the prime end of rib eye on the bone. Shared a nice dozen of large oysters. Meet was tender decent cut and cooked spot on. Probably a little more pepper seasoning than i would normally go for and the sides - we chose to share fries and mushroom didnt get fully consumed as the meat did that job filling us up. service was formal but not over the top. allow approx $100 per head for a couple of courses and wine. Finish by going to to the arches to whisper!!

    This restaurant was recommended to us by family who had visited NYC previously and we are delighted they did. We found the atmosphere to be wonderful and the food was excellent, our waiter was extremely helpful and we found all the staff we encountered to be very friendly. The garlic bread fondue starter was scrumptious and both myself and my wife had steaks for our main course. As we both like our steak cooked differently we were delighted to find they were cooked to perfection. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting NYC and hope to one day visit again.

    We chose this restaurant for my son's 29th birthday celebration. He is an avid Michael Jordan fan who even named his son Jordan after the amazing athelete! We chose the Michael Jordan room, which was tucked away from the other guests. the room was oval and slightly elevated with pictures of Michael in his games, winning trophies acrose the wood walls. Very nice! We felt as though were were VIP customers. Amazing service and the shrimp scampi was do die for! Good choice for foodies as well as those who love and admire Michael.

    The name is just a way to get you to take a look in my opinion. Really nothing to do with MJ that we could tell. With that said- I will say that our experience was above expectation. We didnt know that the restaurant was right in GCS! This was great in itself. The food was amazing. Service was also above expectation. Typically when you visit a big city, service isnt one of the highlights. On this trip to NYC we noticed that every place we went the service was above expectations. Nice to see. If you have a special occasion, this is a great place to go.

    A sleek and sophisticated welcome was given upon our arrival. The request for a table overlooking the concourse was noted and more importantly, provided. Service was impeccable, and the steaks were the best we have had. The waiter advised us regarding portion sizes and sides, so that we didn't over order. This was truly the best way he could have sprint his birthday evening. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
