    Appreciated to be served by a Muslim waiter and waa happy to find vegetarian and / or non alcoholic items in the menue. The Ravioli was excellent, just like the french fries. I was only annoyed by the tight space when sitting at the balcony, and the smelly cutlery.

    Food was okay but we were given a very bad table (poorly located) even though nicer positioned tables were open. So that kind of ruined it for me.

    I’m willing to cede that the Cipriani Dolci restaurant in Grand Central is probably the lesser cousin to the brand’s other establishments, but still I had certain expectations for the experience of dining there. There were a number of issues from food, to service, to aesthetics. Our entrees - the spinach ricotta ravioli and the night’s special osso buco - were both served lukewarm. Water glasses were left empty, we had to ask repeatedly for second rounds of wine, and no coffee was offered with dessert. Further, for the price of the experience, one does not expect holes in the tablecloth. A disappointing experience across the board.

    We did not know what to expect dining in Grand Central Station, but the food was reminiscent of dining in Italy. The homemade spinach ricotta ravioli with butter and sage was magnificent. My companion had the bolognese and felt exactly the same way!

    Carpaccio Cipriani continues to be excellent. Minestrone soup recipe was unexpected and should be cited as a green-colored soup with ingredients stated explicitly. The mozzarella was not right (sour and grainy) and was returned to the kitchen. The sandwich was abundant and savory. After our first truly excellent experience around Christmastime, this visit was very disappointing. I may return to see what transpires in a 2-out-of-3 visits vote.

    I thought this would be a good place for a special meal during a weekend in NYC. It turned out to be an expensive disappointment. The service was indifferent and rushed. The waiter asked if we had questions about the menu and when we asked, he seemed put out to have to answer. The food was just okay--nothing soecial. The baked eggplant was good, but a bit overdone. The spinach ricotta ravioli was flavorless and swimming in oil, with barely a bit of spinach to be seen. The prices can't be justified for the average quality of the food. The setting in Grand Central is great, of course, but Cipriani can't take credit for that.
