Cipriani - Dolci Ratings and Reviews
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!
My family (party of 5 adults and 1 child) went to Cipriani Folci for dinner for a night out in the city. My husband and I have dined at Ciprianis at other locations in the past, so we knew the food would be great- and most of our party was from out of town.
The food did not disappoint. Table ordered Tagliatare Sorrentino, Rigatoni w veal ragu, eggplant parm and ravioli. Everyone enjoyed their food, but portions were small for the price.
The location was great- sitting overlooking Grand Central’s Main Concourse- a people watchers dream. And it’s ceiling was beautiful as always with the constellations painted. The concourse was decorated for Christmas which made it extra charming, plus the holiday fair was running in the next room.
Service was very slow. If you are having a relaxing day, no problem. But we were trying to catch a play at 7:30...with a 4:45pm reservation, we did not finish our meal until 6:20, and get our check until 6:30. We did not get our drinks or bread for a while either.
Overall fair experience, but next time we will visit another Ciprianis in town.
Cipriani Dolci always has wonderful food, primarily Italian. The wine list is great. Service is excellent. The atmosphere inside Grand Central Terminal is extraordinary, and if you like people watching there is plenty of it to do. Excellent restaurant for lunch, dinner, drinks, and food.
Italian inside Grand Central overlooking the Apple Store is pretty cool. You’ve got to stare at the ceiling. It’s beautiful. After a short wait, we were seated on a slow night. The service wizard attentive. Cucumber salad was excellent. New tequila drink from Mexican sister restaurant is superb. Fettuccine with veal ragu was OK, but baked taglialine with ham was exceptional.
The location made the trip worth it, as it overlooks Grand Central Station, but the value and quality were not worth the cost. Pasta did not even taste fresh and homemade. We were also frustrated when we were seated when we asked if we could sit at an open table with a better view but were rudely told it was reserved. No one came to sit there during the hour we were there and we believe we were actually the reservation, but the staff was not attentive enough the recognize the error, including the manager. I would recommend the other restaurant in Grand Central other than bother with this one.
intersting venue in Grand Central, fun, good service and convenient location if you need to catch a train or subway before or after. Food was diassapointing and not inexpensive......
On the assumption that the ‘kitchen’ gets its act together I would give it another try.
Great Italian food in iconic location, on balcony overlooking Grand Central terminal - we took the kids who immediately recognised it from Madagascar - ate early evening so the rush hour atmosphere was buzzing, delicious food with plenty of options for kids, would be lovely just for drinks too, gazing up at the station roof which is a starry sky full of constellations.
It is a great location above the main hall of Grand Central Terminal. The food is also good. But after getting the meal the service staff almost ignored us completely. Obviously there was some change in the staff, but this shouldn't happen in such a pricy restaurant.
The food was lukewarm.
The tables were small and didn't leave much room for the food or beverages. Very tight quarters to get around in for patrons and staff.
Menu seemed limited.
No seafood options outside of calamari.
Wait staff was attentive and pleasant.
Food was fresh and tasted great!
