Overpriced for “ok” food. The rigatoni in the Bolognese was 1 minute under cooked as it was borderline crunchy.

The food was good, but not great. Same could be said for the service. It was extremely cramped, even for New York. What makes this restaurant worth going to is the incredible atmosphere of being in Grand Central Station. It was a good experience, but I was not wowed.

I had lunch at the grand central location- What made it a great experience was the Manager Fernando Dalloroso. He was pleasant from the beginning . I walked in with loads of shopping bags- after a small
shopping spree in the city- He accommodate me and my bags. He was attentive not just to our table , but
everyone having lunch. He seem to be very at ease managing the staff and greeting customers. Food was very tasty and right portion size too. I highly recommend stopping by for lunch or dinner .

Fantastic spot to view Grand Central Station,do some people watching and relax among the hustle and bustle. Took my son, daughter in law, & her mom (who came to NYC from Brazil for the holidays). Great place to take a break during the holidays.

It's expensive. The menu is limited at lunch time. There are no appetizers or small plates. I ordered a Club Sandwich. It came with toasted bread like a grilled cheese. That looked great. Unfortunately the filling had a couple stripes of bacon and what appeared to be cold chicken or turkey salad. Could not tell. That was not noted on the menu. No sides with it. Service was fine, though there were a trio of waiters in the section and you couldn't tell whose table ours was. Of course, the overview of Grand Central Terminal is great, but the restaurant does not live up to the surroundings.

You should double check your bill and make sure they don’t overcharge you for things you don’t order. Once they do expect exceptionally rude treatment from the female hostess who had no concept of listening to what a customer has to say not cares that they falsely charged you.

If you are hungry, don’t go there. We ordered Gnocchi and the portions were so small that we had to order a second entree. The server had too many tables to take care of and it took a while before e could re order.

It’s very loud and crowded. They have crammed too many tables together. Service was not great. I ordered the artichoke antipasti and it was terrible. Very bitter. I also had tuna tartare which was just ok. I did have the main course spinach and ricotta ravioli in brown butter sauce and it was heavenly. So good!!!

Expected more. Tables are excruciatingly cramped - both us and the waiter had to move the table whenever we needed to move. Food was extremely average for the price paid, and swimming unnecessarily in cheese/cream sauce which detracted from the fresh pasta. Calamari was very good. House Bellini was quite possibly one of the best I've ever had. We knew it was going to be pricey and potentially cramped, but both were ridiculous for the return on food quality and table arrangements - we saw two tables request to be moved as they were knocking into other patrons. Service was just ok - prompt, but lacklustre. Would we return - for a drink absolutely, food, not a chance. Sorry!

Was hit in the head with the leg of a table. The managers were more concerned with turning the tables quickly to get people in and out as fast as possible. Our bill was over $500 so it’s not like we were just in & our after one drink. Horrible service from the management on duty and there was more than one.
