Capital Grille - Garden City
BFFs?Really liked the experience. Despite the fact that we're as informal as it gets, we were slightly disarmed by the server addressing me by my first name and requesting my spouse's first name, and using both. Give the sever some credit for observing some discomfort and backing off. I have no objection, but don't assume I came to CG looking to make a new friend. Perhaps you could find a way to make such interaction our request and not yours.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful place for a celebrationThere are few high end restaurants that make as much of a fuss over the birthday of a loved one!
It was a wonderful evening celebrating my daugther's 21st birthday a couple of nights ago.
From the champagne toast....to the digital picture capturing the moment given to the birthday girl...to the impecable service and wonderful food.....a good time was had by all!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Gem of Garden CityI took my mother here for a late mother's day celebration and she loved it. the Steak Delmonico was awesome, the service was splendid. I cant wait to go back.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding 2 weeks in a row.My wife and I went as a last minute decision on a Saturday night, service, food, atmosphere were all outstanding. Our server, Rich G. could not have been more attentive, yet not to the point of annoying. We enjoyed so much we went back the following Saturday with a group of friends. The entire staff outdid themselves from the first time. We had a small room off the main dining area and we were treating like royalty. My new favorite place.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAbove and Beyond ExpectationsI took my fiancé here for her birthday and the capital grille went above and beyond my expectations to help make this day more special. I let them know ahead of time it was her birthday and when we got there they had decorated the table and had a birthday card there waiting for here. Our waitress was nothing short of spectacular and the food was out of this world. Easily one of the best if not the best dining experience we ever had. Our night ended with the waitress bringing over 2 glasses of champagne for a birthday cheers along with a delicious slice of chocolate cake. Was very happy I made the perfect choice in celebrating her special day at this amazing restaurant.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMCapital Grill is a WINNERI have been to the Capital Grill on several occasions now and have never been disappointed with the food and the outstanding service. This is my guilty little pleasure when I want a special treat for myself or just a nice culinary treat! Stoli Doli signature drink is excellent! The lobster macaroni is a "foodies" paradise..not to mention Sam's mashed potato...there are so many great items to pick from you just can't go wrong here.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid Long Island restaurantCapital grille is a notable improvement to the local restaurant scene. The food is good, the atmosphere is nice and the service is very good. Noise levels are reasonable. It is a bit pricey for Long Island but a needed upscale restaurant.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistent Quality & ServiceI found my second trip to Capital Grill to be as good, if not better, than the first. Thank you Rachael for always going that extra mile. We went for a birthday dinner and were treated to birthday confetti, complimentary champagne toast, a birthday card & a specially made dessert that spelled out "Happy Birthday."
The filet mignon with lobster tails in a lemon butter sauce was perfect, as was the salmon I ordered rare - and actually got rare! The kitchen knows how to maintain the temperature of their food. The desserts were works of art, even the coffee was good. All while you are treated like royalty & like family. That is an achievement few restaurants achieve.
Thanks again Rachael, and all the staff at Capital. Can't wait to come back..5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous from beginning to endFirst off I love the low lighting, nothing better than a dinner out in a relaxing atmosphere. Our waiter was sweet, attentive and even did a little magic! Food was fabulous - must get the Lobster Mac & Cheese! We will be back!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMNeeds a better bar tenderOther than the fact that it took the bar tender 3 tries to get 2 Black Russians correct everything else was excellent. My wife's Black Russian came with a bonus of some kind of vegetation in the bottom of the glass.had The manager was extremely apologetic and comped almost half of the check. It turned out to be a mint leave which has no place in a Black Russian. We have had Black Russians here before and they were made perfectly so, I am at a loss for what happened. The rest of the meal was excellent. We both had the Kona rubbed steaks and they were very, very good. The starters, lobster bisque and tomato and mozzarella salad, were excellent. The Au Gratin Potatoes and Sautéed Spinach sides were both highly recommended.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AManniversary celebrationFantastic meal excellent service from the reception staff and waiter .We were given royal service for our anniversary many special touches .It was a highlight in our celebration .5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and serviceOur server was very good at recommending what we wanted to eat and drink. The service was also very prompt and my wife and I loved the attention we received. Will definitely go back.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding service!For the second time in a row, the food and the service at the capital grille was superb. The food as always was cooked to my liking and the service given to me by waitress Leslie was out of this world. She was knowledgable, friendly and professional. The ambiance of the restaurant provided a relaxing lunch environment and I will definitely be coming back soon.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAppetizers and sides wereAppetizers and sides were great. however the steak was bot good at all, surprisingly because the menu was mostly steak. I asked for ny steak medium well and it was cooked well done. in addition, it was almost inedible because of the black burnt crust all on the outside everyone had steak cooked like that. extremely unappetizing. Service was amazing5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great experienceLove this restaurant. The staff is always friendly, knowledgeable and accomodating. Valet parking, always a plus. Great for Long Islander's that don't want to drive all the way to Manhattan for a great meal. Usually too crowded on weekends but went on a Saturday night and was accomodated immediately. Noise level is pretty loud though. Also have been for lunch on a weekday, which was quiet (which I prefer). Better option than Ruth's Chris. Will definitely be back to get my steak fix5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderfulHad a super meal. The waiter Terrell made some suggestions which were wonderful. The manager David introduced himself and again stopped by to see how everything was and it was perfect. Looking forward to our next dinner there.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steaks, great drinks,Great steaks, great drinks, great sides, great service from Rachel.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEven on Mother's Day, it was greatOur first visit to Capital Grille in Garden City was for Mother's Day. Normally, restaurants are crowded, noisy, with terrible service and poorly cooked for on a day like this. Not so at Capital Grille. Except for the oysters on the seafood platter that were bad, everything was wonderful. Service was excellent for the most part, our server Natasha was still in a great mood after hours there and numerous diners that day. This will now replace our previously favorite local steakhouse that was bought last year by another company.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AM2013 Mother's Day BrunchThe Mother's Day Brunch was perfect for our family of four. The only criticism I have is that when we asked out waitress if we could have a egg white omelet for our children, our waitress just told us that they didn't have egg whites. She didn't even attempt to check with the kitchen staff, she just dismissively told us that w, they had to settle for regular egg omelets. I worked as a waiter while in college and I was always taught that the customer was always right to a certain degree. 1.) how much effort does it take to make two egg white omelets?, 2.) Tips are earned and are not guaranteed and 3.) When someone pays $45 for a brunch, they should be able to get what they request.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExtraordinary ExperienceFrom the minute you pull up to the front door, you are treated first class by the valet. We were taken on time for our reservations. The wine list was over the top. Food was superb. Our waitress, Melissa, was phenomenal. We will definitely be back. Five star experience.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerThis was our first time for the Capital Grille in Garden City. We visited the ones in NYC several times.
Food was very good. The filet and sirloin were cooked exactly as ordered and the sides of mash potatoes and asparagus was delicious. We ordered an appetizer of crab meat and a wedge salad. Both were good. We were celebrating our anniversary and when our waitress found out she surprised us with a glass of champagne and made the evening special.
The service was excellent. The only thing I would mention was that we were seated in a booth right next to the "kitchen" and it was a bit noisy. Next time I would request another seat away from kitchen. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Steak without the hassleUnlike so many other popular steakhouses Capital Grille gives you everything the other good ones do, but free of the deafening noise and you're treated in a very professional manner.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a Great SteakhouseI went to the Capital Grille in Garden City to celebrate a birthday. The staff was accommodating, friendly and professional and the food was amazing. I will definitely be returning.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner was outstanding. ItDinner was outstanding. It was a 65th wedding anniversary celebration and it was an occasion to remember.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid ExperienceAmong the many steak places out there today in the NY Metro area, there are the traditional stand-bys that will always be great. Among the newer entries there are many that try to get it right, but few achieve. Capital Grille gets it right. Great food and service with a little more style and ambiance than even the traditional stand-bys.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA very happy birthday!The staff at Capital Grille made this occasion really special. Besides delicious food and impeccable service, I found my table decorated and was served a fabulous birthday dessert! I will certainly be back and will definitely recommend Capital Grille to my friends!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMComfortable.My husband and I got a gift certificate for Capital Grille for Christmas.

not happy about the 30 minute wate4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMTruly Stands OutSaturday was our fourth outstanding dining experience at the Capital Grille in Garden City. As always, the service, cocktails, food and wine are exceptional. Our waiter Terrel Archer,(whom we always request always goes the extra mile to make our dining experience very special. We've dined at other Capital Grilles, but the Garden City location truly stands out. We highly recommend Capital Grille.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMTop Notch Steak EateryThe Capital Grill is the premier Long Island food venue. Everything is first class from the greeting at the door to the dessert. It far outshines and othe steak house. It has Manhattan class and ambiance...and then some4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent and serviceFood was excellent and service was outstanding, however it is very expensive. Good place for a special occassion but not worth the price for everday dining.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBest ever spinach side. ExcellentBest ever spinach side. Excellent calamari appetizer and asparagus. We were 8- one steak was overdone. My lamb chops were excellent . It was a Saturday night so it was busy; nevertheless, I kept having to request water glass refills. The servers brought out one dish late so the rest at the table had to wait in order to begin eating- despite pleas to begin.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific place. Great food.Terrific place. Great food.

This was one of the most pleasant dining experiences we've had in ages. The staff is top notch. The manager Sara & our fabulous waitress Rachael outdid themselves. This traditionally decorated steakhouse is updated w/ elegance. The Delmonico dry aged steak was seasoned & grilled perfectly. I tasted it and agreed with my husband that it was one of the best steaks he's had, ever. Better than the infamous...oh, I shouldn’t say! The Wagyu Beef Carpaccio w/ Wasabi Arugula was light & delicate, with incredible flavor. The Pan Fried Calamari defies description. GO, and don't skip the Lobster Mac & Cheese!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAn absolutely phenomenal diningAn absolutely phenomenal dining experience in all respects. While public perception seems to be that this particular restaurant is unusually expensive, we did not find that to be the case any more than with other competitive, upscale "steak restaurants" in this category, and this one definitely stands out among its competition.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Outstanding ExperienceI reserved a table at Capital Grille for my husband's birthday via Open Table. On the comments section, I added that it was his birthday. We arrived at the restaurant an hour early and asked if we could be seated then instead of at the reserved time. Not only did they allow this, but when we got to our table, it was decorated for a birthday including a personalized card for him. This was punctuated with a complimentary glass of champagne for each of us. The wine list was exceptional and the food was unbelievable. We began with shrimp cocktail--perfectly prepared and served--and followed with amazing steaks and sides. When it was time for dessert and coffee, my husband was presented with a complimentary top-shelf dessert. Amazing!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Birthday dinner!Went to Capital Grille for a Birthday dinner and couldn't be happier with the experience. We were given a table in a great location, nicely decorated and service that was impeccable. The filet mignon was perfectly cooked and very tender and flavorful. Although the entrees were pricey, they are still much better than many of Long Islands "noted" steakhouses. We will be back to Capital Grille to try the seafood and more!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMI had asked for a table offI had asked for a table off to the side as it was my husbands birthday and my mother is hard of hearing. They said they would 'try'. We arrived, and they walked us to a lovely private room ! When the doors were closed - you couldn't hear the rest of the restaurant noise. It was perfect and the service was fantastic.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service and greatExcellent service and great food. I have been to the one in NYC and this service and food is comparable at the one in Garden City4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMHoliday LunchI have been going to the Capital Grille for 10 years now. It is one of my favourite places to eat to dine at. I attended this time for Easter lunch with my family and it was a perfect experience for everyone. The lobster mac and cheese is a must try!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
