Very pleased with both food and service. Grilled salmon and Diver scallop entrees were outstanding. Great tomato bisque too.

Food was mediocre and Luke warm. Had to beg waiters to come and takes order. Never asked about coffee or dessert. Painful experience. DON’T GO THERE. So many wonderful choices in the area this place is awful

This was a very disappointing dining experience. After being seated, it took a very long time for anyone to even acknowledge our presence. Indeed, everything took a very long time: ordering and getting beverages, ordering and getting food, getting the check, etc. Though our server tried hard, he couldn't get past the restaurant being obviously understaffed. Unfortunately, he also got part of our order wrong. And the food was mediocre at best. In all, we will not be returning.

Terrible experience, limited menu (we were told that because of the holiday, they did not have a full menu), no dessert menu available (after we complained, we were served, a frozen cheese cake) on top of that, the service was bad, a rude waiter and a manager that never showed up.

We sat with a front seat view of 42nd, with none of the noise. Our Scottish waitress was great and so was the food. We enjoyed a very well prepared octopus appetizer that was enough for two to share. It's a perfect place to grab a bite to eat before or after a Grand Central Station visit.

My boss and senior level executives had to wait over an hour for their lunch to be served.

I hosted an early breakfast. I had Eggs Benedict and my guest has an omelet. Both were good. Coffee and orange juice flowed.

Amazing octopus appetizer! Wow. Certainly the best ever. Great salmon entree with delicious veggies. Also added a side of rainbow quinoa. Healthy and yummy! Only wish they had a perfect autumn seasonal beer.

We knew it was pricey but was getting a quick dinner with our daughter before she got on a train for CT, so wanted to be near GCT. But $18 for a glass of wine is really pricey! Also, the maitre D' and the server bordered on rude. No smiles, stuffy unfriendly attitude that really turned us off. Would not recommend. Go to Sinigual or Public House if you need near GCT!

I write as a diner alway on the lookout for gluten free dining options. There were a few gf options on the menu and they were open to altering other items to suit my needs. The part that impressed me most was ehen they brought bread for my husband, they made a special effort to find gluten free bread for me. It's the little things that make a difference. The meal was very good. I ordered the salmon and my husband had the steak frites. We would go back.

Food is good and reliable. And the waitstaff is professional. Unfortunately the hostess is angry, hostile, and a real turn-off. Her attitude will make me reconsider what used to be a regular spot for business breakfast.

Table service courteous and attentive . Menu was adequate for lunch. Unfortunately kitchen staff was very slow, despite the dining room being only 40 pct full. Budget 90 min for lunch. Prices are what you would expect for Midtown Manhattan.

New York Central, located in Grand Hyatt New York is a wonderful setting right next to Grand Central Station. With amazing city street views we dined overlooking the hustle and bustle below in the comforts of the well designed restaurant. Food was delicious, drinks were wonderful and the service was outstanding. Highly recommend this spot!

This was a disappointing dinner. We were celebrating my going away and I'm so frustrated about the service. When we sat at the bar, the staff didn't acknowledge me. I asked for a table in the restaurant, but the server was bad as well. I won't return.
