404 Grand Central Terminal, New York, NY | Directions 1001740.752955 -73.977445
Excellent Customer Service – Although the portions were smaller, the food is good. They screwed up our order, but more than made up for it with free dessert and drinks.
3.5 Stars – I was debating between 3 and 4 star's for this restaurant, and settled on 3. We came here for lunch twice. The place is very busy and a reservation is recommended. During particularly busy times, the service can be very slow. The decor is nice, and some people might enjoy the view. Personally, I felt like I was in fact eating in a train station. The food itself is pretty good. The beet tartare is quite tasty. The tuna tartare is a bit too spicy, but has very good consistency. The crab ravioli are above average, but I don't recommend the parpadelle. The prices are fairly high, and you could certainly get better food for the money, but you may want to try this place for the experience.
Great food and atmosphere! – Excellent food, attentive service and stimulating atmosphere . . . I would definitely recommend this restaurant. I was worried its location in the balcony of the Grand Central terminal would be noisy, but it was perfect.
Metrazur...Superb – Metrazur was an overall wonderful dining experience. The ambience was classy and relaxed. The setting was quiet, romantic, and just interesting overlooking the main terminal of Grand Central. All of the staff from the bus boys, to the hostess, the the waitress were very accommodating. The waitress offered her suggestions and was very honest. The Yellowfin Tuna Tartare was tasty (a bit too creamy) but very good and spiced just right. Entrees: Trout was tasty and in a splendid sauce with caviar...YUM! I also tasted the Duck which was done just right! For dessert, I tasted the Walnut Apple Tart. The whole atmosphere was perfect and I never felt rushed. A great place for a date or an occassion. I would go back for other tastings of the other items on the menu!!
Hello Myah!!!! - Please don't quit! – I have been to Metrazur on numerous occasions. It is an extremely conveinent place to stop for a few cocktails on my way home. HOWEVER, the new hostess has turned this into my favorite place in the city. Myah is the friendliest, sweetest, hottest woman that I have seen in a long, long time! Thank you for your hospitality! I will definitely be back. Many, Many. Many times......Did I say many?
Great for views for food – The open-air area is not good for conversation b/c it still is GCS. But the food is good; try the lobster with saffron sauce, very good. All the desserts the group tried got favorable reviews. Also good for client lunch meetings, esp. for out-of-towners who will get a big thrill out of the location! Pricey, but worth a try, at least once.
Desserts! – Check out the cookies plate - excellent value for money and the best chocolate cookies on the planet!
Missed the Train – Choppy service with a bit of attitude thrown in -when we asked for the restaurant week prix fix menus the aiter made a face. The food was OK and the Restaurant Week menu was diverse with sufficient choices but overall it was disappointing. The waiter brought our friend's birthday dessert out after we had all finished our desserts and coffee- we figured he forgot and then along came another dessert with a candle this time- the same thing she had, had with the prix fix lunch- we would have been happy for a candle in the one we paid for- with the choices in Grand Central these days this is one to skip
Service with an attitude – Great space, such a beautiful building. Surprizingly quiet for such a busy hall - easy to have a conversation. Food was relatively good, not outstanding, but not bad. But the service - oh the service. Terrible. Felt like they were really doing us a favor. Took ages to get our food, and the waiter was incompetent (eg. didnt bring bread plates or water after 3 requests).
best ice cream in the city!!!! – i'm not an ice cream lover, but it came with the lunch pre-fixe, and i actually ordered seconds!!! they make it there, and it shows!!!!!! get the chocolate and the homemade hot fudge, and enjoy!!!
