    Just perfect in every way. The wait staff is top notch. The food is delicious. The ambience can’t be beat. They don’t rush you at all so you can enjoy all the glory of Grand Central Station. If you can afford it, a must.

    Food was good, but service was a little off. Our table was not ready on time and there were several large tables that took a lot of attention from our server, which is understandable but irritating all the same. Food was good, drinks were small.

    The food was outstanding, the service was outstanding, I just didn’t realize that they had moved into the west balcony of Grand Central Station and had anticipated their previous location on 42nd St., so the ambiance was not quite what I had expected. I have to be honest, it’s such a fine restaurant, that I hope it finds somewhere a little bit more cozy as a location in the future.

    A bit overpriced for the food quality, service (trattoria style) and table setting (same very small wine glasses for whites and reds). My wife loves this place and comes often because of the ambiance and views of Central Station and the Vanilla Meringue (a must here). For me, it was just Ok. I didn’t appreciate the waiter pointing out the expected tip percentage…

    One of the best places in Manhattan to have lunch. You’re literally in the heart of the city inside Grand Central. The service and food is always impeccable. Highly recommended, particularly if you meeting someone from out of town if you want to hit some “wow” factor at the setting.

    Lovely meal amidst the beauty of Grand Central. Great martinis and good wine selections. The food was outstanding… Raviolis perfect, light and the right balance of flavors. The eggplant also delicious and different; perfect combination of flavors. Oh, the carpaccio with Uruguayan beef was among the b st we’ve had. Thanks for a lovely evening… The service was great too

    Extremely underwhelming particularly for the prices. $30 salad was small and drenched in dressing. Did not look particularly fresh or appetizing. Nothing worse than when your food comes out and you are disappointed as soon as you see it. Beet salad with green beans was made with Asparagus stalks instead of green beans. Had to ask twice for check. Pasta dishes were good not great and portions were small. Very mediocre and overpriced

    Service was pretty good—generally attentive though a bit tardy on coming back to me for wine choice with entree. The wine recommendation was good. Setting was delightful and I was accommodated for a table for one where I wanted one. Osso bucco was wonderful but the risotto just ok. I loved the dinner overall.

    Lovely setting in Grand Central Terminal. Our expectations for the food may have been a bit too high as we were disappointed. The bolognese was oily, and the rest of the pasta was ok. Given the price we expected better.

    What a wonderful experience for our anniversary dinner - the atmosphere on a balcony in Grand Central Station is lively and great for people watching, but not too loud or intrusive to enjoy your meal. Service is top notch and attentive, not intrusive. Food was delicious and well prepared. Homemade ravioli was exceptional. The vanilla meringue cake was why I wanted to come here in the first place, and it did not disappoint. Will return!
