Worst steak, worst service in NYC. – A work associate picked the place for a dinner on a Wednesday night. I've been to many of the best steakhouses in NYC but never been here. I ordered the filet and it was by far the WORST steak I've had in 12 years in NYC. It was so over cooked that it tasted like cardboard.
To make it worse, the waiter was horrible. In addition to bumping my chair every time he walked by, he seemed not to care that our drinks were always empty. We had to ask at least three times to get a glass of water and a new beer. When they finally came to clear the table, I pointed out that I only ate 1/2 my steak because it was so overcooked it was horrible, he actually laughed and just walked away! Do NOT Go Here!
Great lunch! – The fasttrack lunch menu was affordable and the streak was delicious. Service was very fast and the place is beautiful
OVER RATED – EVEN IF YOU WANT TO ENJOY THE ATMOSPHERE AND CANNOT EAT CERTAIN THINGS ON THE MENU, THE CHEF SAID HES NOT PREPARED TO VEER OFF HIS MENU. IN THE MEANTIME, THE CHEF FIVE MINUTES LATER IS GREETING A TABLE AND SPENDS ABOUT 15 MINUTES TALKING WITH THEM. YOU FEEL YOU ARE TOO IMPORTANT TO MAKE A PIECE OF GRILLED CHICKEN...GIMME A BREAK...DID YOU OR DID YOU NOT JUST REOPEN YOUR DOORS BECAUSE OF BAD MANAGEMENT. DON'T DISCRIMINATE PEOPLE MR. CULINARY CHEF. THE GUYS ON THE STREET, ESPECIALLY THE GYROS HAVE A FRIGGIN LINE DOWN THE BLOCK AND WE SPENT 200.00 DOLLARS NOT WORTH IT!!!!!!
Worst Steakhouse In NYC hands down – What a joke this place is not a Steakhouse. 8 steaks at the table not one cooked the right way. Service was terrible from hello to goodbye. Please do not waste your time ANY other steakhouse would be much better.
My worst experience in NYC ever – A group of my friends recently went to MJ's for dinner as part of restaurant week. After sitting down, we were informed that the restaurant does not participate in restaurant week for dinner but that they are aware that the website says they do. We were told there is nothing they could do but when we almost left, they offered to give us a special menu- but not without a couple of snide comments from the waiter. At that point, we should have left because we were treated horribly throughout the meal. My friend who has Celiac disease was treated like a complete inconvenience to the restaurant and not offered any substitutes that she could eat. She had never been treated so badly at a restaurant. It was impossible to enjoy any of the meal when we were being treated so horribly.
We are all in our mid-twenties and while we were going out for restaurant week, we would have been more than willing to spend a large sum of money on a great meal and an enjoyable experience. It is a shame that a well-established (though mostly empty) restaurant like MJ's felt the need to belittle us and act so unprofessional in an understandbly awkward situation. Restaurant week is supposed to allow New Yorkers to enjoy the great restaurants that the city offers at an afforable price, but in this case, MJ's went out of their way to make us feel unwelcome.
I am certain that no one at our table will ever go back there, and I advise everyone to avoid it.
Total Disaster – I went to Jordan?s yesterday (Friday 2/20/09) for lunch with three friends from work. We ordered the burgers. Two ordered them medium, one medium-rare and I requested mine rare. When the burgers finally arrived almost 40 minutes later, one was medium-rare (as ordered) and the other three were all very well done, dry, taking the form of bloated hockey pucks. Regardless, after waiting almost 40 minutes we fell upon the burgers like a pack of hungry wolves, taking the occasional moment to complain to each other about how overcooked and dry the burgers were (except of course the one member of the party who got his medium-rare as ordered). It is amazing how a high end restaurant can get three out of four dishes so wrong. Instead of enjoying a nice Friday lunch that we all looked forward to ending the workweek with, we spent the afternoon nursing stomach aches. Much like Pamela Anderson, a peanut butter brownie, or a shiny Chinese toy, although Jordan?s may appear enticing at first blush, one would be well advised to keep their distance.
Great service and surroundings – This is a must do at least once. Every member of the staff is very helpful and sincerely very friendly. The service is truely outstanding without hovering. Being located over the concourse of GCT is a perfect NYC experience. The food, while predictable is very, very good. Definitely pricey but, hey, what do you expect?
The porterhouse for two is the one. – I have made MJ's Steakhouse and Radio City Music Hall Christmas Show a family tradition during the Christmas Hoiiday. My 50th Bday was celebrated by having the ultmate dining experience; wined and dined in the MJ's Steakhouse VIP room along with my family. And each time, for me, there is nothing else but that porterhouse for two and a good cabernet to make for satisfying face feeding.
Not great – I have had better steaks at Outback! How can a famous steak house serve a bad $40 petite filet? Very disappointing. The gorgonzola fondue was delicious and the servcie was very attentive. We were seated promptly and were given the seats with a view that we requested. The ceasar salad was average and the sides were terrible. The mushrooms were rubbery and salty and the mashed potatos were definitely instant. Unbelievable! Go visit Grand Central Station but eat somewhere else.
Great service!! – My fiance and I randomly went in Grand Central on Sunday during a long walk for a few drinks and ended up being pleasantly surprised!! Despite being quite warm at the bar we ended up staying for a couple of hours...excellent and charming bar staff! The bartender was not only the most sincere person I've ever met in a Manhattan bar/restaurant but she made the best mojito I have had in the City!! A bit pricey for the drinks but worth it for the service and the scenery!
