Location, location, location. This is a very good restaurant in a fantastic location which is inside Grand Central Station. We were seated at the balcony (we asked for it at the time of booking) which was amazing to enjoy the view of this beautiful station and watch people passing by. The food was authentic Italian and very delicious (well, they... More

So we tried to visit the Campbell Apartments but that didn't work out, you can see my other review. So right around the corner was Cipriani and we thought why not. We were seated right away. Our drink orders came very quickly, even though the place was packed. The drinks were excellent. Try the manhattan on the rocks (it was... More

I go to NYC every year and I always visit this bar in Grand Central, though I'm not really sure it deserves my business. The location is second to none and I adore being in the beautiful building but the food and drink is expensive (perhaps understandably), and the staff I can honestly say are among the most miserable I...

We had a meeting in NYC having only a couple of hours to spend in the city. It was picked as Grand Central Station which could not be more central. For a business lunch venue it was fine. The food was pleasant and served quickly, the setting was great if a little noisy at times. My only disappointment was how... More

Very loud, too loud for a restaurant. I felt myself screaming across the table I think i lost my voice the next day.

This place is always great in a visit - the restaurant style has changed to an eatery. The waiters were good - and really not great, more station style - we were expecting more.

Perfect location looking down at grand central station. Very friendly staff & the cocktails were perfect. We ordered a couple of bar bites & they were just perfect. Quite pricey but lovely.

Good restaurant in a great location in Grand Central Station. Waiter was very knowledgeable of all items on the menu and perfectly attentive. Gnocchi w Gorgonzola cheese was good with a Pinot. Wife had a delicious Eggplant Parmesan and excellent Cosmopolitan drinks. Of course, the view of the station is amazing and worth drinks here for that alone. The only... More

One of my fave places to eat - as a treat - when I am lucky enough to be in New York. I LOVE the baked spaghetti with ham. it's one of their signature dishes - and I simply can't resist it. Add to that views over Grand Central - it's just fab.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
