I love everything about Grand Street Cafe from its location to the servers to the feed! To me, it's an exceptional experience whether I'm going alone to sit in the bar to have a drink and watch a game (because, yes, if the Royals are playing, Grand Street Cafe has it on in the bar! (Thank you!!!)) or whether I'm going in to dine with friends. Can't wait to go back again!

Our server, Avery was AWESOME! She knew we were some close friends who hadn't seen each other in a long time and had a lot of catching up to do so she didn't hover. She was very friendly and very helpful in walking through our choices for dinner. And her advice was PERFECT! Great food to go along with the great service. Restaurant was a bit noisy but obviously everyone was having a good time and enjoying their evening.

We went for Happy Hour. Ordered several items. One was the “potato skins” which had dressing and cheese on them. When they arrived, there was barely any dressing and literally three shavings of cheese. We asked the waitress for extra and when she came back, she told us we were “lucky” that the chef agreed to give us extra cheese and dressing #blessed. The white cheddar fondue with pretzels was good. We also ordered the pimento cheese, and the coconut chicken which were both mediocre.

We came to Grand Street for Sunday Brunch with another couple. We have dined there several times over the years but this was our first Brunch visit. The menu was perfect for our tastes and the combination of entrees offered along with the appetizer/ dessert buffets gave us all the options we could possibly want. Our waitress was excellent and very attentive, especially considering the volume of other diners at the noon hour.

This was one of the worse meals I have had. The other one was the night before this at Grand Street. It’s hard to believe that a city with so many outstanding restaurants that Grand Street is still in business. Service was terrible at the Sunday brunch. We ordered a couple of lattes and after over 20 minutes we still didn’t have them even though one had been sitting on the bar for a while. I canceled mine and about five minutes later the waitress brought the one that had been sitting on the bar all this time, barely warm but my friend took it any. Some of us made the mistake of ordering the buffet which had a very limited selection and they were pretty much out of everything even plates. Had to wait for everything especially the plates.

We had actually gone there the night before with other friend and I ordered the Pappardella. Big mistake. The pasta was clumped together as though it had been cooked earlier and was just sitting in a pot and then kind of warmed up and the sauce was tasteless.

One thing is for sure we will not be going back and have already let friends know how bad the food and service was

My wife and two other couples were visiting from Wichita and decided to go here for Brunch Sunday morning. No problem getting seated at our reservation time but it did get busier later. The appetizer and dessert buffet were fine, but not overly impressive. Our breakfast entrees were very good.

Food was and always is excellent. Lovely ambiance. Pasta was very good. Beet salad and salmon were excellent. We were told that going forward the restaurant would be charging $8 for a bread basket. We thought that was tacky. Prices are not inexpensive and if patrons request bread, we think it should be complimentary.

I booked the reservation here, somewhere new to us, for my wife’s birthday. Not a big celebration, just family (4 of us My wife and I and our 2 kids). We walked in the door and were immediately greeted. I told the host that we had a reservation and he walked away to “check and see if we have a table available”. The place was not too busy.

We were seated and felt as though we were being judged by everyone in the resturant, including the staff. We were not over-dresser nor were we under-dressed. Our waitress was very nice to inform us that drink refills (for my kids 15 & 10) “were not free”, because that matters. We were simply trying a new place for a special occasion. We are not afraid to spend money on a resturant that we’ve never tried before, it’s part of the expirence! We enjoy trying new resturants and we enjoy great food! The only saving grace to this establishment is the food was absolutely amazing!!
My son ordered the seared salmon and absolutely loved it. My daughter ordered the smoked pork chop and it was amazing! My wife ordered the Filet and I the Ribeye, which were both excellent!
I would recommend to others based only on the food, the environment and wait staff, unfortunately fall short.

Cocktails are overpriced. Our waitress was not incompetent, but nor was she friendly or seemingly very experienced. We also felt rushed. However, the food was really yummy; I enjoyed the steak and eggs thoroughly. The shrimp and hummus in particular were tasty. The dessert items on the buffet could be more inspired and varied.

It took 30minutes for us to get our entree. We ordered 1 waffle and two strata. The strata was dry and lukewarm.Considering everything else was buffet style I thought this was a long time. The service was excellent but the kitchen let them down. I have had both lunch and dinner in Grand Street many times and have never been disappointed but I won’t return for Sunday Brunch.

It was a nice evening to be able to sit outside. It generally is very noisy inside the restaurant, more likely due to the small sitting area around the bar, which is usually pretty full. Food was wonderful as always. Service was very prompt. Will definitely continue to return to Grand Street.

We arrived at 1:00 for the Sunday brunch. The buffet was still supplied. By the end the dessert were not supplied or plates. However, they did offer us anything we wanted from the buffet to take home free! We were seated right next to the buffet. People were bumping my chair.

We dined with out of town guests bringing total diners to 5. We shared two appetizers; chicken-fried brussel sprouts and spring rolls. Both of the appetizers were fantastic--worthy of future orders. The service was attentive but allowed for easy conversation with our friends. We shared a half-price bottle of wine and additional cocktails...check out "Hot Lips Houlihan" for a citrus sweet +sour. All entrees were cooked according to our requests with two guests ordering fresh fish and one the freshly- made pasta special. Will be back.

I would recommend Grand Street-Plaza to a friend, as I brought my friends here to dine for lunch. For a Plaza restaurant, the parking is very convenient and easy for those with walking disabilities. Our server was very attentive and the food was outstanding, many different selections and lots of great comments. I thoroughly enjoyed the salmon salad, hit the spot. Great lunch choice!

We attended Grand Street Plaza for Sunday brunch. When we arrived there were very few other diners. They were out of wheat bread. My wife ordered pancakes and sausage. They brought her waffles and bacon. Had to ask for coffee refills. They were NOT busy. Bill came in at just over $51 which was fine. Gave them my card. Brought back print out for bill at $72. When I said something they said they would credit it back. They then took my card and brought a slip for the $51. When I asked for a credit slip for the $72 refund amount they said I didn't need one and it would come off in a few days. I insisted and they printed the refund receipt. I did tip because the food was good. The waiter closed our experience by stating that he was sorry and really is a good server. We will think twice about returning because we can get good food in lots of places and better service everywhere.
