Capital Grille - Garden City
Great 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 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 AMWhat a Great SteakhouseI went to the Capital Grille in Garden City to celebrate a birthday.

It was an excellent experience.5/4/2013 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.

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 AMAs always...the bestAs always, the food was delicious. Terrell was a phenomenal waiter and David, the restaurant manager, was extremely attentive. It is wonderful to have the manager come over and check on your meal and your experience even if you have no complaints!
Highly recommend for all three important areas of fine dining (Food, Service and Ambiance)3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA neighborhood gemI was pleasantly surprised at my first visit to this restaurant. I went to the restaurant with a group of 11, and we were placed in a private room. The atmosphere in the restaurant was busy but quiet. We were greeted amiably by Jesse Miranda, our host for the evening. His service made us feel that we were being catered to as special guests! I ordered the chopped salad and the Delmonico steak with reduced balsamic vinegar. The salad was delicious and the steak was sublime, cooked exactly as I had ordered. Everyone in the group loved their choices. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants fine service, delicious food, and good wine served in a pleasant atmosphere.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe steaks were great andThe steaks were great and prepared perfectly. Service was very attentive and took care of all our requests.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWhen we did not care for theWhen we did not care for the placement of the first table we were shown, the staff was very gracious in accommodating us to the "private dining room". The service was great and the food was delicious. Steaks are fabulous. I'd also recommend the grilled asparagus and of course the lobster Mac & cheese. Price was reasonable for a steakhouse.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding in every respectThis was among the best meals of my life. Everything about this restaurant was excellent. The service was attentive but unobtrusive. The food was delicious and perfectly prepared. My wife and I both had steaks and both were flavorful and tender. This is on par with the best steak restaurants I have ever been to. Highly recommended.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMTo perfection...Overall great experience top to bottom.

It has become our favorite and it is getting better.
We had the best server anywhere, Samantha Shapiro. She is super efficient, never gets rattled no matter how busy she is, and has the best personality. She makes every every customer feel special by remembering what you like and how you like it. She is a joy.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat server Leslie: good food too!First off I would like to applaud the excellent service that we received from our waitress Leslie. She was informative, outgoing, and very professional. She was able to Answer all of our questions and she did a great job. Additionally, the food was very good and the ambiance was exquisite. In the future I will be back and will definitely request service from Leslie and would recommend to my friends and colleagues that they do the same.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMDo not be intimidated by theDo not be intimidated by the prices as the menu makes it worth the cost.

Excellent!!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulThe food is delicious, the service exceptional and the managers are beyond compare....we are not the easiest to satisfy and I have never walked out of their with a complaint. Must have coconut cream pie to top off a phenomenal meal!!!!!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMy Filet was cooked to perfectionMy Filet was cooked to perfection and my fiance's bone in ribeye was amazing. Creamed corn with smoked bacon and creamed spinach were to die for!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEveryone was pleasant, professionalEveryone was pleasant, professional and took great care of us - and we're not the easiest bunch of customers either ... The Porcini Delmonico is exceptional3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and servicethis is my second time coming here, first time i had Wilson who was great. but this time we had Kumar Parikh which excited me because before i came here the first time i read many reviews and everyone was saying to ask for kumar. might i tell you he is very friendly and i have to tell you this place knows how to hire staff. i never once had to call for svc because he was always around. took his time to beak down to menu. this time i went with the porterhouse instead of the fillet Mignon but i think the porterhouse was even better. also the creme brule is amazing here too. KUMAR is the man and very knowledge able and explains exactly the way the meal will be prepared and cooked ... a+++3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe bloom is off the rose for usWe have eaten here several times before but this time it was less than expected. Service was beyond....... but my wife's filet was on the salty side and my porterhouse was lacking something. It just wasn't up to par. Friends of ours had raved about the Parmesan truffle fries so I ordered them and was unimpressed. I ate three and when the waiter cleared the table I mentioned I didn't care for them. To his credit he took them off the bill. Maybe we need a breather.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAsk For Tasha!My husband and I dine out at least three times a week and are always seeking new places. We are pickier than I like to admit which is why I felt the need to write. The Capital Grille was absolutely incredible. The lobster bisque and macaroni and cheese were to die for! However, what made this experience so notable was our server. Tasha Madden provided us with the best experience we've had in years! From beginning to end, her knowledge, smile, and hospitality made us feel like we were the only people in the room. There are very few people who do her job as well as she does. We will absolutely be back and will be requesting her every time. We're so happy to have found such a wonderful restaurant in the Garden City area.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThis new edition of the CapitalThis new edition of the Capital Grill certainly lives up to its other fine Capital Grills in the NYC area as well as outside of the NY area. The service was excellent and attentive. The food always delicious. The bar staff definitely on their game. Can't wait to go back/2/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
