We were staying opposite in the Grand Hyatt but opted for Pershing Square for breakfast as it seemed to have more atmosphere and definitely better value. This place is busy, but it extends back a long way. There was a wait to be seated at the slightly plusher tables at the rear, but we chose table close to the window... More

Just enjoyed another fabulous lunch at one of my favorite haunts when I visit The Big Apple! There is almost anything you want on the extensive & reasonably priced menu. While their chicken pot pie is outstanding, today I opted for the delicious lobster roll sandwich. Service, as always, was friendly & efficient. Love the convenient Midtown location!

we found Pershing Square at the end of our stay and that was the only disappointment. The establishment runs like a well oiled machine. The greeters, bus boys , waiters and kitchen staff work together to make the experience amazing. we managed to fit in breakfast and afternoon tea in our last 2 days. We couldn't fault any aspect of... More

The restaurant is located just across the entrance of Grand Central Station under the arch of a bridge. It has the charm of the last century and is open for an early breakfast for the early bird or the european jet-laged tourist. There are two parts of the restaurant, the one in the back is nicer, quieter, so try to... More

Friends had recommended for breakfast but we decided to try for evening meal as looked inviting. Wish we'd done breakfast. We were a bit disappointed in the meal. My mozzarella was dry, my husbands main was fine , mine not so good at all. Didn't bother to even try desserts. Don't think we'd be back unless we try breakfast next... More

The breakfast they serve here is one of the best. Due to the location (Central Station) i would say the quality of the food cannot be compromised therefore the ingredients are fresh due to the high flow of people aswell. The pancakes are good, not excellent but still some of the best i had in town.

The restaurant is famous for breakfast and deservedly so. The choices, the quality of the food and the ambience are all very good. The service was good.

Nice little place for breakfast. Cold iced water on arrival. Home fries with everything. Quite a busy little place and sometimes difficult to get waiters attention. Was nice but im sure New York offers better.

After a shatteringly tiring 12-hour day at the US Open, this place, across the road from Grand Central Terminal, in an old railway building was just too convenient to pass by. It was a good spontaneous choice: the food was good; the wine excellent (the recommended Sauvignon) and the service brisk and friendly. It was quite late for dinner (10.30pm)... More
