I expected their luncheon special and was disappointed to learn they had discontinued it during the busy Holiday Season. I was told they would bring it back some in Feb., but who knows. That had been my attraction to the restaurant for lunch.

I have eaten at Michael Jordan's on several occasions. The ambiance is wonderful, overlooking the main hall at Grand Central Station. The service was fine, courteous and friendly. My only grip is the size of the portion for the price. My business partner and I both ordered filet mignons, mine on the bone, his boneless. Both were very small and expensive. Each were over $45.00 . The side dishes were each $10.00 and were also small for the price.
I ate at a different steak house yesterday and the filet mignon were a little more expensive, but twice the size.

Overall, the quality of the food was fine, but the value is missing

The food and drinks were decent, but very expensive. The servers were very kind and friendly but the service was slow. However, great ambience. It's fun to spend time in Grand Central without having to worry about the crowds or catching the train.

Brought back business memories! Good food with exciting view of Grand Central Station. Food was excellent and well as the service. Fun place for out of town visitors to watch how commuters race home.

I was meeting a friend for lunch and we both ordered the steak tacos. What a disappointment. Sliced over cooked cold chewy pieces of steak arrived. I was very disappointed and I suggest staying away from this. It might have been an off day and I am not ready to write this place off just yet. On the plus side, the service and the atmosphere is fantastic.

This was a terrible time. I am very upset that I wasted my $20 reward on this meal. Service was terrible and so was the food. Our waiter told us that they had accepted a last minute holiday party, and really I think the restaurant forgot about all their other guests. Everything was very rushed and the food came out room temperate like it had been sitting out. This was supposed to be a birthday celebrations for my mother who was visiting NYC for her 65th birthday. The waiter and host did nothing for birthday, even though I told them. At the end I had to mention it to out waiter again, infant of my mother and therefor the surprise was ruined. The cake came out bland, and like it was sitting out all day. No candle, no birthday recognition. I would never go back to this location. The one in Chicago is fabulous. We are very disappointed.

Our booking was directly linked to the 23 later chocolate cake...! It and the steak we ate didn’t disappoint. The food was amazing. The steak was seasoned and cooked to perfection. The service was great and the waiter had the perfect way of being there exactly when you needed him but left us alone other than that. The price was a little more than I expected but the whole experience made it worth it.

Amazing location and food was very good if somewhat overpriced.
Service however was poor, nearly a hour between main course and starter, think they forgot us, then steak wasn't cooked as requested.
Overall lovely venue but felt somewhat underwhelmed by the experience.

We arrived for our 8:30 reservation and were seated right away. But service staff seemed more interested in closing at 10pm than serving patrons. Service was slow, drinks were empty most of the meal, some sides were tepid, and a medium rare steak was well done. They took my credit card at the end of the meal promptly, though. We will not return to the Grand Central location.

I booked MJ steakhouse for my 50th birthday family celebration on our trip from the UK but it was anything but! Our waiter was arrogant and unfriendly, i didnt get all of my order which, he blamed the kitchen there was no apology, very unprofessional! The food was minimal and not cooked well, It was very expensive for the quality, the final bill was $220 we were there less than an hour as we didnt feel welcome or valued. We would not recommend.

I loved everything, except that there was 4 couples dining with us and our waiter was not able to separate our bill. We was each paying seperate and had to just “pitch in”. Some of us paid cash and some were paying by credit card.

The main draw of Michael Jordan's Steakhouse in Grand Central Station is the ambiance. The food is average and a little overpriced. But it tastes good. The unique experience of dining amidst the splendor of GCS is worth it, though. We would probably not go back again but it is a good experience to have once. The service is very good, as well. Attentive without being pushy or overbearing. Overall, it's the kind of restaurant to visit to say you've done it but not something that would be a favourite dining option.

Porterhouse for 2 was plenty for 3 ladies. Mac and cheese, creamed spinach, sweet potatoes fries were delicious. The “23” layer chocolate cake is a must. Absolutely outstanding... plenty for 4 people! The 3 of us cut a slice and 1 brought the last piece home!

I took my friend here for his birthday last night (11/16). Service was great! I do not recall the names of the two gentlemen who serviced our table (one was a gentleman who wore a suit. He was training a waiter last night) BUT they were amazing. Very informative; answered all of my questions and every offered suggestions for when I requested something that wasn’t on the menu. I’d definitely come back.

Becoming my "go-to" spot for business lunch in midtown. Menu variety is good. consistent service. Convenient. And surprisingly quiet for a GCT location. Unique vantage point to take in the activity of the main terminal below.

We had a table booked at 9pm and it felt like we had to rush through our dinner. Waiters were just waiting for us to finish. Steak was ok-ish but have had much better ones in Ruth‘s Christ. Surrounding is fantastic though. Still would have expected much better service for the rate.

Consistent quality in a very accessible midtown location. Surprisingly quiet, with unique ambiance and view looking down on GCT. Service not always as attentive as it should be for a great steakhouse.
