    Great place to eat with the beautiful background of Grand Central station. It was a quiet evening when we ate there, as they shut done the train station to tourists due to the protests.

    Just want to thank everyone at Cipriani for an amazing dinner in a truly “Grand” place. Everyone we interacted with was helpful, professional and went the extra mile to accommodate our family of 4 and related baggage. Food was outstanding and we only regret being too full for dessert! Hope to be back soon.

    I had a few questions about the menu and the waiter seemed to smirk and laugh at me like I was dumb for asking the questions. I said to my companion “he’s laughing at me” and after that waiter was distant and not very attentive. Good, ambience and other staff were fantastic.

    Thought we made a reservation for one of the nicer locations and realized we had to eat in Grand Central Station. Service not that great and food very disappointing. Extremely expensive and heading the trains or whatever was being announced was a disgrace. Then a man kept coming inside and yelling about how he’s going to be a cop and rich man in his next life. The police officers did nothing. Very bad experience!

    Cipriani food is consistently good, but service is inexperienced and inattentive. Ordered $55 filet mignon medium rare. Was serve tail portion of the tenderloin, which was tough and overcooked. Maitre d’ agreed to replacement immediately and after 10 minute delay, a center cut filet was presented. Awkward event because guest was eating entree course, while the replacement dish was in preparation. No accommodations to bill or other courtesies were offered (complementary glass of wine or dessert). Prices high - dinner for 2 plus gratuities = $300.

    We were disappointed... pasta was not fresh (meaning made that morning and not refrigerated). We had eaten at the Cipriani located downtown so we were expecting the same quality. It was pretty cool to sit at Grand Central Station and people watch. Grand Central Station was not busy so the noise level was not as loud as pre-covid so it was enjoyable to be there. Sitting was packed just like pre-covid so if you are concerned about being too close to other guests, I would suggest a different place to eat indoor. Otherwise order takeout from their other location and enjoy at home (because both locations keep tables close together that you can clearly hear the other people's conversations.

    I was disappointed that the hostess seated us close to the bar and kitchen when I had a reservation and asked to sit by the rail overlooking Grand Central station. There were two available tables one seating for a party of 4 as well as another table for a party of 5 at the rail. My party contained 4 guests. I did ask the hostess to be seated at the table for 4 however her response was “ I have a reservation for that table”. We were there for an hour and a half and that table was never seated with guests. In fact more tables opened up by the rail and very few new customers came in. If you’ve ever heard of the expression: A bird in hand is worth 2 in a bush, this situation definitely comes to mind. If you have a customer with a reservation why wouldn’t you serve them and make them happy instead of waiting for someone else who may or may not show up. Plus I had a reservation!!! This being said, the food and wait service was fabulous.

    Price was good but food was very salty. Spaghetti wasn’t fully cooked and took 50 mins… other big party table got all of their food in like 20 mins.. good indoor view of the grand central terminal with quiet atmosphere but probably won’t come back.

    It was my first time to this Cipriani location, I have been to the Wall St and W. Broadway location, I was pleasantly surprised, it is located inside of Grand Central Station, someplace I never get to visit since I don’t use public transportation, it was located on the upper balcony so the view of the platform was nice, the service was great and the food was good as always.

    Grand central station NYC was a great place to stop for a bite to eat on our weeks sightseeing holiday before Christmas 2022. Food was delicious, the service was excellent. It is quite noisy but Hey your on a balcony in Grand Central..!! It wasn’t the cheapest meal we had but a must and will definitely be back next time we visit the ‘city that never sleeps’ Thanks for a very memorable afternoon.

    After being delivered our wine, we were told that the power in the kitchen had to be turned off. So we could only order cold items from the menu. At 5:30pm on a Thursday night during the holidays, it would be impossible to get a reservation elsewhere. We all ordered the chicken salad, which is supposed to be good there, it t was underwhelming, none of us finished it. You would think they would comp the desserts....not happy about my first visit there. Very disappointed!
