The food was just ok. But even for NYC the prices were outrageous. $7 per coffee and $7 per oj that they didn’t even ask if we really wanted.
Our meal was a disaster. They had not received our reservation, which had noted that it was an anniversary dinner. I assumed that noting that fact would result in something pleasant like a free glass of champagne or a free dessert. In fact, NOTHING special was done to celebrate our special night. The waiters did not seem to know their job very well--the only time we were really helped was when we needed to choose a wine. A member of staff who knew all about the Riesling on the menu consulted with us. And the food was excellent. The mistake we made was to assume that you can go home again--the old saw is correct: you can't go home again! We last ate at the restaurant in the Hyatt at Grand Central 37 years ago, on our second wedding anniversary (we had honeymooned at the Hyatt Embarcadero Center in San Francisco). It was a delight, with tablecloths, carpeted floors, beautiful lighting--the perfect place for a romantic dinner--and it was quiet. Its present incarnation is the antithesis of romantic--noisy, hard-edged, rather ugly, at least in the eyes of ancient ones like us! And poorly lit. At our table, Ellen sat in a pool of light from an overhead spotlight. I sat in the dark. The little tea candle on the table-without-tablecloth was useless. I had to use the flashlight on my iPhone to see my meal! --Jack Mahon
The interior of restaurant appears not to have been updated since the '90s. While the service was good, it was quite unpolished. The pork chop was VERY DRY and not at all tender. The burger was good, but no much can go wrong with a burger. The fries were tasty. For a restaurant in this location, the supply of draft beers should not be depleted.
Ninety-nine + percent of the restaurants we choose from OpenTable are very good to excellent. This restaurant was a rare exception. Overall, it was not a memorable dining experience, one that we will not repeat.
Nothing to write home about, esp. for the price
Love the location, prices a little steep.
Loved the Caesar Salad with grilled salmon. Also love the burrata and crab cakes! Tasty place. And our server Anne was so good to us.
This place is a gem inside the Grand Hyatt. I was not expecting such a wonderful meal and such attentive service from a hotel restaurant, but we were more than completely surprised. Truly happy with the experience!
Showed up at 730A with reservation. Sign requested customers to await seating assignment. I waited 5-10 minutes for hostess. Food and window on 42nd Street was quite nice and noise levels conducive to quiet business conversation. Service was excellent as was the repast. I found pricing to be excessive.
Mara, Semone, and the staff are especially helpful. Great service in a great location.
Great service, very friendly staff, great food, nice view of the streetscape!
Reservation for window seat honored. Great, fast service. Horrendous hotel menu prices, entirely fine food and presentation.
Currently the restaurant’s kitchen is out of action so there are only expensive buffet breakfasts available. We had intended to eat dinner here as well but that menu is also severely limited. This should be acknowledged on the hotel’s website until the kitchen is back in action.
Awful . Don’t do it
The food was tasty though the selection is small. The service was good, the staff tries to please for instance when I was cold they easily moved me to a different section of the restaurant. However, the prices are high for the food offered and the look is a tiny bit tattered and dated. The location is convenient but if you are looking for overall value, given what you get for the price you might do better elsewhere.
Food was ok, great server, but worn out and filthy seating. Saggy booths and food all over the chairs.
I am pleased my cousin picked up the tab. Otherwise I would have been working in your kitchen as a dishwasher for a week to have paid the bill. Yes your food was good, but no where near what I am use to pay for the same items. I had almost the same items for breakfast at a Waffle House this morning in SC and my bill was under $10.00 for two people.
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.
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.
Comfortable quiet fine food with good unobtrusive service
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.
The service was excellent; the waiters were courteous and prepared a nice birthday cake for my daughter!
This restaurant is very conveniently located next to the New York Grand Central Terminal. We love this place very much.
I hosted an early breakfast. I had Eggs Benedict and my guest has an omelet. Both were good. Coffee and orange juice flowed.
Had a pleasant dinner with a friend. The waiter and maitre’d were helpful and service was good. Food was better than I expected.
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!
We had a wonderful brunch last Sunday! Thank you for a most pleasant experience with terrific food and excellent service. We will be back!
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.
Restaurant was surprisingly quiet. The food was great but the service was very slow and the waiter was not at all attentive. Overall nice place and reasonably priced for the area. I would go back again.
Lovely setting and excellent service, but food was very mediocre and overpriced.
