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.

I didn't realize that this was a hotel restaurant when I made the reservation. It's inside the Grand Hyatt. The food was delicious (eggs Florentine with salmon) and the view over 42nd St was nice.

Just want to thank the restaurant staff. I didn't realize when I made the reservation that they close for breakfast at 11 am. Because of LIRR problems I didn't arrive until almost 10:45. They still sat us, let us order, and did not make us feel rushed at all. We stayed until it was almost time for them to "reopen" for lunch. Thank you for the excellent service dispite the lateness.

This was a quick brunch on the edge of Grand Central Station - the Grand Hyatt Hotel

Nothing exceptional but a nice quick meal a crab Eggs Benedict concoction that was tasty.

Its location is its biggest asset but the food and service were perfectly acceptable.

This place is just a gem of the Hyatt Hotel. U have a great taste of real meat when you stomach just says "Thank you". It's that kind of food. Servants are very natural, don't ask too much, just the right thinks, don't annoy you. I'd recommend this place as it's the really good place to spend a night.

Ate 2 dinners and 1 breakfast, staying at GC Hyatt. Super noisy, service poor to mediocre. Food so-so. First night was birthday celebration for friend & she seemed disappointed with menu and service. Restaurant staff not at all friendly or helpful. Would not recommend this restaurant to others and would not eat there again.

Fabulous breakfast when it came to french toast and pancakes (have never had french toast as good as here), but the person who had the eggs were slightly disappointed as they were nothing special, tasted and looked like any generic eggs you'd get for a few dollars in a small scale diner or eatery.
Staff were fun and friendly, prices not bad and overall experience was good.

We enjoyed an excellent dinner. The roasted tomato soup was delicious, best I ever had. Salmon & pan seared Scallops were done perfectly and incredible. Dessert was chocolate mousse that was rich and very good. And a cappuccino that was amazing. Service was GREAT! A little pricey but we would definitely return.

Host was outstanding and made me feel like a valued guest, service and food was great. The restaurant had a problem with the fridge and had no dessert. The way the server told me about no dessert quite blunt, as if I was being cut off from ordering more. I inquired why and learn about the fridge problem. Was not offered any coffee or anything to finish after dinner.
