Cipriani - Dolci Ratings and Reviews
I expected the food to be more interestingly prepared. It wasn't poor tasting just not remarkable and there are many restaurants in the city offering better cuisine so I probably wouldn't go there again unless I wanted the view of the main concourse of Grand Central. They also prepared steak well done that had been requested medium rare but took it back and fixed it.
My only problem with this location was that it was by the street level door and you felt a really strong draft which made my toes numb. Everything else was great the ambience the location right in the middle of central station the food was great service was excellent
Had restaurant week menu, but we had a late reservation & by the that time we got there the menu was tired & wilted. Too bad for us. The Salmon tartare was sad & frisee garnish was wilted... hey just leave it off if it’s not up to service. The steak I had was over salted & only ordinary. Been to Cipriani before at Wall Street location & it was wonderful, just think we were too late to get the best from this location. If they can’t keep up the menu to the end of service... don’t serve it. Sets me as customer to on edge that I can’t count on quality whenever I choose to come. This was unfortunate because I had a guest from out of town & they were not impressed even though in a lovely setting they thought the food “very ordinary”. Next time I’ll forget “restaurant week”.
It was fine. Salad and homemade ravioli were excellent. Cake was beautiful but blah tasting. Being in Grand Central was fun and being Restaurant Week made it fine. Regular prices are very high for location. I think wine glass price was high for location (even for Manhattan) and charging for coffee in prix fix meal was unexpected.
Started a little rocky when the hostess chose to seat a party of 4 at a table made for 2 but the manager quickly adjusted the seating situation and we were comfortable from the point on. Cipriani has good casual food served quickly. The service was fine and the ambience is noisy and fun. The restaurant is located in the main concourse of Grand Central Station so the people watching is unsurpassed. Go there to have fun and eat decent food.
Essendo un “nome” nel campo della Gastronomia Mondiale, Cipriani mantiene sempre lo standard di Genuina Cucina Italiana. Prodotti che poco o nulla hanno da invidiare a quelli che si trovano in Italia. Se il servizio fosse un filino più professionale (es: versare il vino al bicchiere davanti al cliente, farglielo provare, ecc...) sarebbe quasi perfetto. Il personale è per metà affabile e gentilissimo e per metà efficiente ma poco “friendly”.
The restaurant’s location, on the mezzanine of the restored and majestic Grand Central Terminal, is the big draw. And despite the crowds and hubbub, our service was exceptional. The food is good. For all this you pay a price, high even by New York standards. For example, most of the wine is $80 a bottle and up, with quite a few over $100 — and these are good but not landmark offerings. For three courses including dessert, plus wine, tip, and taxes, the bill for three of us was over $500. Dining with attentive service in the imperial grandeur of Grand Central made for a memorable evening, well worth the kingly price.
We visited at 6:30 on a very busy Saturday night. There didn't appear to be any effort to accommodate our seating request (made in advance). Wonderful ambience nonetheless; a beautiful setting overlooking Grand Central's main concourse, and the noise level permitted conversation reasonably easily. Service was very pleasant but quite slow, almost to the point of neglect. If the prices were lower, that would be forgivable. The kitchen got the food order out within a reasonable amount of time, but it took quite a while to get drinks ordered, a basket of bread, etc. The waitstaff was just stretched too thin. The cocktails were great - a wonderful "perfect" manhattan. My dining partner had tortellini which was fabulous; my hamburger was delicious, but the fries were just slightly warmer than room temp. At $27, a burger should come with hot fries. We were hoping to have coffee and dessert, but by the time we got the attention of the waitstaff, we had time only for a quick cup of coffee and the check. On the whole, given the delightful ambience and the quality of most of the food we had, I would return. But definitely not on a busy night.
We took a break from Christmas shopping and had a delicious and festive lunch. Our Waiter, Wilson was exceptional. He was very friendly & kind. Please try the chicken salad and artichoke soup - both were just so tasty! You can’t beat the ambience of Grand Central Terminal at the holidays!
