Well all I can say is 'they must have bad taste buds' we arrived and were seated straight away in a lovely clean booth. We were made aware that lunch started at 12 to which we were happy to wait.

Food was good for the money and portion size was good so good in fact we could not finish it all but sadly let down by bad service left for ages without being asked if we was ready to order or even wanted a drink and then plates from starters left on tables while we was eating our main meal

We've been to Grand Central a few times over the years and the food and service has always been excellent. But after not having been for a while our latest visit was just disappointing. The waitress was still friendly but whereas the food had always replicated a NY dinner this time it was just disappointing, the menu has been reduced... More

Four of us visited here to celebrate one of our birthdays. The surrounds are clean and bright and the atmosphere here is great. Food was fantastic with a great menu choice and the birthday boy had a unique version of 'Happy Birthday' sung to him and received a free dessert! Definitely coming back.
