The food was amazing. No doubt about it my complements to the chef. However, there seemed to be disharmony between the waitors. First someone who most certainly was in charge stood next to our table and yelled at the waitor for taking to long to put silverware on the table next wo where we were sitting. Then twenty minutes later two different waitors were yelling at each other as they were walking around. Very inappropriate for a place where people are paying alot of money to enjoy their time. Other than that the place was amazing. I would recommend it to anyone!
Eat Your Heart Out, Luger's
By colpo on 5/29/2003
First, Luger's is great, but I've rarely felt like doing the car thing both ways to get there. Jordan's is a beautiful space (open-ceilinged, framed by Grand Central) with first-class food and service. The atmosphere is special, but for those few tables by the escalators. Steaks are great (their meat is as good as Luger's) as are the sides. Many excellent non-steakhouse dishes here. Very good wine list, particularly CA-based wines. Servers are spot-on. By the way, their "chopped steak" is my favorite burger in the City.
Seating & Service
By mlmadrid on 6/28/2008
The food was outstanding. We were placed in the outside section without being asked if we would like to sit inside which we could see was quite empty. I felt very slighted by that as I felt we were not good enough for the inside section. The service was so-so. We were not approached to see if everything was okay or if we needed more to drink. The wait staff needs to improve their service.

One of the best center cut filet mignon I've had in ny. The problem is that it's too informal for the price, you have a great view if you like grand central. Overall is a nice steakhouse but too expensive, service is good but the atmosphere is not that good.
Taste and Presentation are on Top!!

Close your eyes for a moment and picture this! Low lights...post stressfull, busy-day chatter...the sound of wine pouring into the glass...surrounded by a heaven of olfactory stimulation...oysters, assorted cheeses, warm garlic bread, lobster, shrip, fine olive oils and herbs, and of course dont forget their signature steak...cooked as you desire. Fortunately you dont have to keep your eyes closed for long because this experience can be yours...for a fare price of course.

Very good, great porterhouse and striking setting
By tanyaturnernyc on 12/19/2006
We were surprised how much we enjoyed this place given the other reviews. We went for the holiday lights really and because we remembered it as a great setting to have a special dinner. The big surprise was the steak, which was really fantastic. Shared the porterhouse which had melt-in-your-mouth filet mignon and very tasty strip. Creamed spinach was good, hashbrowns a little salty. Service was excellent, waiter and sommelier very friendly and knowledgeable. Overall the price is the same as any other good steakhouse in the city (e.g. Dylan Prime) and with such a fantastic location it makes a good change.
good palce to eat while in Grand Central Terminal

Their prix fixe menu was good esp. when you have teenagers. A place to go when you visit the terminal.
My first steakhouse visit.
By SugaRay on 8/5/2003
I chose Michae's for my first steakhouse visit because of its location. We went for an early dinner on Sunday, so the place was pretty empty. I can only assume that the crowd picks up. Noise level was really my only complaint. I would have enjoyed it more had the location been just a little more quiet. I ordered the roast chicken w/pan drippings which came with snow peas and baby onions and a side of mashed potatoes. I thought the food was great, however, my date did not not agree with me. He felt the portions of food were too small. For desert I had the brownie sundae which was absolutely heavenly.
A Meaty-meal in Grand Central

Best for the gluttonous and cigar-loving, fat, affluent, white-male. Great Mac 'n Cheese and nice steaks, but other than that I'm OVER IT!

- If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
