Great service. We had finished plans and were able to change times.
The food was hot and quick. After serving the steak, the waiter disappears.
I had poured my own refill of water, the manager had to get our check.
I the waiter would of done his job it was a excellent location for steak

Consistently good food. Surprisingly, one of the least noisy Midtown restaurants for a business lunch. Service is often not as attentive as at other NYC steak-houses. But being on the balcony of GCT has a very cool vibe.

Our group of six celebrated the formation of our business. Kudos to the manager who made a special accommodation for us that was much appreciated. The food and wine was, as always, great and what is not to like about the view of Grand Central Station.

Food was very good. Location and setting wonderful. Wait staff was like something out of a comedy routine. I actually saw someone from another table get up and get menus for his group. They brought out the wrong drinks. Never asked if we wanted another round or how our meals were. Tried to remove my plate while I was still eating. At the end of the meal we ordered an Irish coffee, coffee w/ bailey's and a cappuccino....I thought for sure poor Jeffrey would have a meltdown...and the staff buzzing around him no better. Not sure if I'd give it another shot or not.

Decided we would treat ourselves on our visit to NYC this year. The food we ordered was amazing. I don’t think I have ever tasted a steak as good anywhere else. It was cooked to perfection. We loved sitting on the balcony. Service was very good. We would definitely recommend for a special occasion or a treat.

We'd requested a table next to the railing, knowing that they might not be able to accommodate. When we arrived we were told that one would be available within about 15 minutes, so we decided to wait. After 10 minutes we were told they hadn't forgotten about us, which could either have been thoughtful or a cover up as other people who arrived after us got seated at the one table that had become available and after 20 minutes we were told that the party at the table we were waiting for was just now getting their entree. How did that go from 15 minutes to "they're only now getting their entree"? Anyway, we went with a different table which was totally fine as well. There was a waiter chatting with someone sitting at the table next to us - we didn't know that was our waiter so we waited and waited for someone to take our drink order (as no one else was to be seen) until a different waiter tapped the shoulder of the waiter next to us and asked him to take our order. 20 minutes after we got seated we got our drinks. Food was nice, portion sizes were good! However the service was really disappointing. It was slow, our waiter didn't pay attention to us at all, birthday was not acknowledged in any way and it was overall just kinda disappointing.

Food was good, not great. The waiter disregarded a serious shellfish allergy we shared with him and they clearly cross contaminated our food and left my wife very ill for the next 24 hours, ruining a portion of our week long stay in Manhattan. Definitely not a top tier steakhouse, should have gone to Wolfgang Zwiener's or the Peter Luger Steakhouse.

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

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.

I had booked the reservation weeks before visiting, but we we arrived I think around 7 , the place was nearly empty - I suspect for a reason. I had a traumatic experience here. I requested to move to another table and was refused and lied to. They said the table was reserved but it was vacant when I left. They could have easily moved us to a better location, instead of right next for another couple with my facing a wall in a nearly empty restaurant Service was cool and aloof and lazy. I had to send my steak back - it came out fairly quickly. I ordered medium to medium rare and this beautiful steak was grey with no pink. Then it took a very long time to receive my revenge of a nearly raw steak, Stay away from this place. The view of Grand Central is great , but not worth the price of bad food and unfriendly staff.

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.

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.
