I spoke so loud I lost my voice. the guy next to me was literally on top of my table. The waitress sucked I think she might had gone to Greece to get my Frappe.

The music gets too loud at times. My boyfriend loves their food, I don't - I've had way better food for cheaper also, but I have always loved their desserts! I thought that their food is just a little pricey. Great desserts, great drinks, great atmosphere - could get a little too loud and crowded though. Altogether, I like it.
That's where I met my boyfriend!!!!

Grand is great for just having a drink and catching up or making it a night out. Food is average but scene is fantastic- been several time and will continue to go!

Pros: relaxed, fun crowd

Cons: none

There is a lot of hype over this cafe, and it is well deserved. The venue is large with ample seating, both inside & outside. The food is great and the drinks are okay.

service was very scattered and for the prices, the food is not that good...place is a little chaotic with loud music and a bit confusing on what they want the place to be...cafe? bar? restaurant? also way too loud while you're eating...Astoria has a ton of other cafes that are more intimate and offer great food...

I live in the area and have been the Grand Cafe many times. I was there a few days ago and found a change for 2 different amount for my dinner! The charges were for 17 and 14 dollars and I know that I only left a 6 dollar tip on the 17 dollar bill. I called Grand to have the charge reversed and could not be more upset about the response. The person I spoke with told me they were sure the charge has not been put through twice and that it took several days for a charge back to appear on my card. The person I spoke with DID NOT ask for my name OR look up any records so I don't understand how they could be so sure there wasn't an accidental charge. The person on the phone said the waitress should have told me they ran a charge twice. Any type of responsible behavior would have been nice since now it feels like I was given the run around and had my 14 dollars stolen.

Cons: Frudulant Charges on Credit Cards

Grand has the best food of all of 30th ave. Everything is made fresh daily and they have the best choices. I love sitting outside and eating a relaxing dinner. My roommate and I who live around the corner from grand go there as often as we can. We also like to go there and watch METS games!! I recommend this place for either a family gathering or a first date.

Pros: The service and Brunch

I've been to this place twice and didn't like the food so I never bothered with them again. Recently an employee of mine ordered lunch from there and said the food wasn't so bad so I decided to give them another try. I asked her to order me a veggie wrap(it came with a choice of fries or greens) I also told her that I wanted fries with that. We were told that not only did they have no more fries but they didn't know when they were getting anymore in. Now mind you a side order of fries is $3 and a side order of onion rings is $3.25 I told the lady taking the order who was also the hostess just charge me the $.25 extra and give me the onion rings its not my fault you ran out of fries at 2 PM!!!!! She said no I cant I'm going to have to charge you the $3.25 plus the $8 for the wrap. So I asked to speak to the manager and was told he was aware of the situation and was not going to do anything about it. I simply told her than forget the order which by now was $35 and hung up the phone. This nutcase had the nerve to call me back and yell at me b/c I wasn't speaking to her very nice. Are you kidding me?????? Grand Cafe you really should treat customers better!

Pros: The decor is ok

Cons: Everything from service to prices to the food!

.

I admit it has a nice setup and is a very cool place to hang out at. However, the prices are just ridiculos! 7-12 dollars for a drink? No thank you. Also the place seems too clicky, felt like a HS dance with the regulars in one part and everyone else at another. Don't recommend

I would be the worse critic when it comes to food bc I simply LOVE everything! But the ambiance is very appealing. The crowd varies from mainly European, etc. The cappucinos are great. The desserts are wonderful. Get the Chocolate Marquis. Great place to simply relax, have a drink and check out some European men.

Looking for a quick bite for breakfast or a long, luxurious brunch, this cafe has it all with professional wait staff and menus to satisfy every food critic. Prices are reasonable.
Decor is extravagant.
Neighborhood is central to all transportation and parking.
Outdoor Cafe as well as spacious indoor facility with catering.

This is a nice place to go especially in warm weather when the doors are open and you can eat outside. The food is good although some things are a little pricey. The service is better than most of the other cafes you'll find in the area and the staff is very friendly.

Pros: Ambience

.

This cafe has a VERY relaxed feel. The service is average and at the end of the meal, we always find ourselves looking around the cafe for our waiter to ask for the check. (They don't just bring it; they don't care if you sit and chill there all day.) Yes, the prices are high. But I still love Grand Cafe because the food is so superb that the other stuff falls in its shadow. Amazing brunch. Great milkshakes, too.

Pros: Food Quality, Ambience, Brunch special

Cons: Service, Having to ask for the Check

.

Great atmosphere. Wonderful brunch. But other menu items are pricey.
Drinks are way over priced. No way should a vodka tonic cost $9.
If you're willing to pay the price come and enjoy yourself.

Pros: Atmosphere - hip and trendy

Cons: Pricey

Grand Cafe is a very nice place...nice atmosphere...BUT it is very expensive...a salad w/chicken will cost you about $16! I think that's pricey for a SALAD! Other than that...hot waiters and a cool/hip cafe! :-)

Grand Cafe has an amazing ambiance. By day it is very cafe-like, where people eat paninis, salads, or wraps, while others sip on coffees or wine. The burger is amazing! At night, it becomes more of a lounge, where the lights dim as cool chill music plays in the background. Their brunch is great and prices are very good. Service is average, but very friendly.
