I asked for a medium steak, but it was well done and completely grey throughout. No pink at all. The person next to me ordered the exact same steak, and heat, and his was perfect. Just a little blood and red/pink in the middle. They were nice enough to cook a new one, correctly. However, another diner ordered a meal that was so salty it turned his stomach after the first bite, and he just couldn't eat anything the rest of the night. Server said it was the "brine" that they soak the meat in... Sorry, meat shouldn't taste like a "salt lick", and my friend said it tasted like salt lick that they tried as kids, and it was gross.

The food was good. The ambience was confusing; leaning toward fine dining/elegant atmosphere but the 4 big screen TVs showing sports & the odd choice of background music confused us.
The service was atrocious!! The server greeted us obnoxiously with HIS weekend plans irritated at our clear lack of “up orders” because we didn’t order a 2nd round of drinks. He took away a drink that wasn’t even finished & kept trying to rush us out as we were trying to finish our food, by rudely grabbing things off the table as we ate, never asking us if we were finished or needed anything else etc. Conversation with the owner as we left to let him know we were disappointed was basically a waste of time. We won’t be back, nor will we recommend this restaurant.

All of our dinners were very good and portions are quite large. Service was pretty slow- took about 45 mins to order food but the whole place was full at 7:00 and waitress said something about everyone being seated at once, so she was quite busy.

I’ve always loved Grand Street Cafe. However, for Easter brunch, seemed to maybe have a lot of temp employees, food varied, service as well. Pretty crowded.
I would still go back, just not for holidays.

We arrived about 15 minutes early for our Easter brunch reservation but were seated immediately. Our waitress brought water quickly and took our initial beverage order while we perused the menu to decide our meal orders.
The menu was a three-course prix-fixe for the brunch, but it was difficult to decide between the tempting menu choices. I ordered the butter lettuce salad, prime rib with mushroom scrambled eggs accompanied by twice fried potatoes, and cinnamon roll apple bread pudding for my dessert. The prime rib was a thick cut and the best tasting I’ve ever had at any restaurant. A friend ordered the halibut eggs Benedict and he said it was also delicious.

Though the restaurant was very busy, the wait staff was very attentive, our water glasses were never empty and additional beverages filled on request.

We will definitely go back again!

If you're keto or low carb, this is not the place for you. Removing a side usually lends itself to suggestion of another, but not in this case. If you need to remove a side, oh well, that's just one less thing to eat, I guess.

Also, we only saw our server when it was time to order and then time to pay. No check-up, no refills, nothing. For a $100 meal, that was an experience we'll never repeat.

Grand Street has always had a fantastic menu and the ambiance is fantastic. I ordered the salmon with cacio e Pepe risotto and asparagus, and wow! It was so so delicious. The salmon was prepared perfectly. I have to say though, our server was inattentive, and when he was, he was somewhat curt to the point it was rude. Prior to taking our order, he rattled off everything they were out of before even saying the specials. That was odd. He had an unkempt beard that almost seemed like a hygiene issue, and at the end of the evening, he dropped off our check. We did not see him again for at least 30 minutes, and the restaurant had cleared. We had to find another employee to find him because we really wanted to pay so we could leave.

This is pretty inconsistent with any other experience I have had at this amazing restaurant. I think the management and ownership should know, and I am sure they will set higher expectations.

Great-looking place, great service, and most importantly, great food! My wife and I went for a late Valentine's Day celebration, due to getting COVID and not being able to go anywhere on actual Valentine's day. I definitely recommend, to anyone looking for great food and atmosphere on a date with your special one.

Dinner was good, however, no Covid safety precautions inside dining. Tables were seated all next to each other with no space. There is outside dining available which is a good alternative.
The food was good and portions were appropriate. Service was a little so-so. Waitress forgot to put in our appetizer and brought out one entree after the others. Staff was friendly and apologetic but could have been better for what we paid.

I would title this 'ambivalent'. The server was only moderately interested in taking care of us, as well as brought us the bill and we had to ask about dessert. The bar filled up fairly quickly making any social distancing inadequate as you had to walk through that unmasked area for the restrooms or the exit. The food was not as expected (other than the brussels sprouts). It had been on our restaurant rotation list, but now make come off for awhile.
