    Don’t go for the food - pricey and lackluster. The fun of this place is the setting. Beautiful to be sitting inside the main terminal of Grand Central!

    Everything, the food and the beverages, were all outstanding. The wait staff were very welcoming and attentive. The ambience is the ambience of the concourse of Grand Central Station. If you find that exciting, this is a great place to sit and take it all in. Harry's Bar makes the best cappuccino!

    This is definitely a place that has relied on its name and location for far too long. It could be great but the quality of the food was dismal - pasta with a bolognese sauce that tasted like it came from a can and was frightfully expensive. The menu is old, tired and ridiculous. The pricing is completely out of whack. Don’t get me started on the wine glass- tiny, thick and something out of a cheap cafeteria. Never ever again!!

    The food was great. The service was lacking. Several servers kept asking if I wanted water even though someone already took my drink order. Then when I needed more to drink, I couldn’t get anyone’s attention. I also couldn’t tell who my server was. When it came time to ask for the check, it was like pulling teeth to get someone’s attention. And then it took too long to get it when I finally got someone’s attention. This is during the lunch hour when I already said I didn’t have a lot of time because I had to go back to work.

    The service could not have been beat. So many people were waiting on us making sure that everything was perfect. We were able to enjoy our lunch and time at Grand Central Station. This restaurant has a perfect location over looking the main lobby/ concourse at Grand Central. I has the asparagus beet salad and thoroughly enjoyed it. We thought we would have had the restaurant week menu, but that’s not available on weekends. The restaurant is a little pricey, but with the service, food , and unbelievable location it’s understandable. Regardless, you won’t be disappointed.

    My dining companion and I went for restaurant week at lunch. Since we were at the later end of lunch time, it was not busy. The service at the start was lacking. Took a long time to be acknowledged for seating and then to be acknowledged for ordering. The table next to us got up and left due to similar neglect. Fortunately, the experience improved from there. Once engaged, our server was attentive and the food came out with reasonable speed. All dishes were well prepared and tasty. The ambiance is interesting - we had a table to directly overlook Grand Central. All around enjoyable time. I would not hesitate to go back.

    Cipriani Dolci is an excellent option for a quick simple lunch if you are commuting to or from Grand Central Terminal. The food is very good (although the portions are not very generous) and the location, on the balcony level of GCT, makes it an interesting observatory. Excellent capuccino also.

    It is our third year dining here on NYE. Previous 2 years we’ve had great service and food. This year we were seated by a hostess in uggs and leg warmers (not a great look for an upscale restaurant..). She sat our party of 4 at a table squished in the corner while there was a much more spacious and nicer placed table available. She did move us after we asked. Our waiter automatically only offered us bottled water which cost us 10USD for 1 bottle - no option for tap water even though it was being offered to all the tables around us. They brought us a bread basket with no butter- after asking two servers for butter we were told that they had no more butter with a side of attitude from our waiter. After everyone had their bread without the butter the waiter magically came back with 2 measly balls of butter which served no purpose because the bread was already had without the butter… Food was served to us on the table that was not cleaned off of crumbs (I only mention this because I know that this is normally done between courses at Cipriani). A dull steak knife was brought after the plate of lamb chops was served. Rice that was brought with the veal al limone was raw and almost chipped my husbands tooth. Mashed potatoes served with the lamb chops had no taste to them, my pasta with veal ragu was served luke warm and the serving of pasta with cream and prosciutto cotto looks like it’s been cut in half from previous years. While we ate, no one served us more water, no one asked our we were enjoying our meal, we basically did not receive any service during our meal. The only time our waiter actually seemed to be “waiting on us” was when he had to pick up the check to see what was left as his tip. Given the prices that Cipriani charges and the caliber of dining they are categorized in this was an extremely extremely poor experience all around.

    We had reservations here specifically to eat dessert and have cocktails. When we got there they told us we could not use our reservations for that, and now we had to wait at the bar for “another” table to open up. It did not mention in our reservation we could not use it for certain kinds of food and cocktails, so this felt very unfair. By the time the “other” table was ready, we had to leave, defeating the purpose of our reservations. We ended up not having time to purchase all the things we originally planned on purchasing so they also missed out on our money as well. A big disappointment in the customer service department.

    Food was so unsatisfactory - the soup was mush and the chicken salad was like the inside of a chicken sandwich, just chicken and mayonnaise. None of the service staff asked how the food was, just if we wanted to order dessert or coffee. Would not recommend - so overpriced for such subpar service and frankly gross food. Only upside was the free cookies.

    I asked for burrata as an appetizer. They were apparently out burrata. Instead of telling me so I could order something new, they gave me a ball of mozzarella thinking i wouldnt notice… completely disappointed by the lack of professionalism to come to my table and admit that they gave mozzarella because they ran out of burrata, instead of it being an honest mistake.

    They accommodated my 6 and 8 year olds taste buds and for that I was grateful. They brought them little cookies at the end too. The Bellini had a fake sugar or non sugar cane flavor I couldn’t put my finger on. So, it wasn’t mind blowing. The atmosphere was fun and energetic. My kids enjoyed watching the hustle and bustle.
