I am a food blogger from Tampa and someone recommended New York Central and the food was absolutely delicious. I had the scallops entree and the creative flavors of that dish blew me away. The star of that dish were the brussel sprouts and the delicious way in which they were prepared was amazing. For an appetizer, I endulged on the korean and buffalo style wings and they were crispy and delicious, I ate every single one of them. I finished dinner off with a slice of cheese cake and it was phenomenally creamy and delicious. The dinner was truly the highlight of my trip to NY. The only issue I had was slow service. I waited about 20 minutes for my cocktail to arrive and 20 minutes repeatedly asking for my check.

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.

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.

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.

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.
