Surroundings were wonderful for a comfortable conversation.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth going insideFrom the sidewalk, the Capital Grille looks a little dark and uninviting, but once inside you will find a welcoming staff and delicious food I a comfortable atmosphere.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMCapital Grille NYCLobster and Filet was very good. Creamed corn and bacon was good but could have had more cream.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPre-Theatre DinnerThe restaurant offers a pre-theatre dinner which is wonderful.

FoodService was wonderful. Food was delicious. Love the calorie count on the menu.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExpertixeThe waitress was extremely kind, fun, and pleasant. My wife and I loved the Anniversary table decor, card and picture. Very nice classy picture frame. The ambience was romantic and business classy. The huge pictures on the wal made me feel like I was at a high end private club function. The prices were standard with the type of food and atmosphere. Loved the spinach and lobster macaroni. The filet mignon was decent but it looked more rare and I wanted medium rare. Would recommend.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacularWe celebrated a special occasion and were treated like royalty by everyone from the maitre'd to the bus boy. Excellent food and service!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMbusiness lunch/expense accountThe food was excellent and while the service was attentive, the waiter handed us menus as soon as we sat down then immediately asked if we were ready to order - ridiculous! We were being rushed through lunch and we had not even had a chance to look at the menu. And, though there were many empty tables we were seated at the first booth - closest to the door. And we looked good! Lunchtime is a business and they made us feel like we were on an assembly line, which needless to say, diminished the experience despite the fantastic food.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMsea food at steak housealthough cpital grille is noted fr steaks, y wife and I felt like sea food that night, she had an excellent lobster and I had a delicious sole.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMStop here before a Broadway show!The food is always spot on with great customer service!!!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMPrie Fixe dinner for $39.Prie Fixe dinner for $39.

Very satisfied customer,5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated Mother's DayWe celebrated Mother's Day at Capital Grille. The food was of excellent quality. Our server, who was from Savannah,Ga. was so helpful and made excellent dinner recommendations. The noise level was so quiet that we were able to conduct conversations without having to speak loudly. What a wonderful restaurant!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMwanted to love it but didn't...Went after theater to have pre-theater prix-fixe dinner-had to ask for that menu which I didn't like (think it should be offered with regular menu). Limited selection on this menu but certainly adequate. I had Caesar salad, Filet, a side of spinach....husband had the House specialty steak(Sirloin with a rub on it), Caesar, and mashed potatoes side. We order the Lobster Mac and Cheese for additional cost-best thing of the night.Creme brulee for dessert for both of us, also coffee included with the deal. Great price of $39 from 4-7p. Good but not great food...(my husbsnd's steak not as good s my Filet-he ended up eating only half but had some of mine so was quite full).5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe continue to enjoy the foodWe continue to enjoy the food and the staff at the Capital Grille but remain frustrated that the wine supply rarely matches the wine list. The list is priced with more expensive top vintages listed while lower price/quality vintages are attempted to be substituted at serving time. I understand the difficulty in maintaining the supply but then prices should be adjusted.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways consistent, delicious,Always consistent, delicious, and diner focused! They always treat us very well! This is one of the more beautiful restaurants in NYC.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe Keep Going Back B/c it's GOODWe tell anyone that asks if you want a consistently great dinner then go to Capital Grill.

Our service is impeccable, the food delicious, and our night was memorable.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently reliableCapital Grille is one of my go-to restaurants for consistently reliable, delicious meals for business. I can always count on the service, and if we are rushed for time, I can alert the server to help move the meal along.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFANTASTIC!Capital Grill in the Time Life Building is amazing. The food, the ambience and the service are SUPERB!

Our favorite server is Kenny, he is fantastic!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Steak in the CityI am a huge fan of a really good steak. Usually a filet oscar-style. I have tried numerous steakhouses in the city and was surprised to find that this location of the Capital Grille provided the best service I have had anywhere in the city, with a superb steak and a wine list which included several excellent bottles near a $30 price-point. The Capital Grille was less expensive, for better service and a better steak than I have found anywhere else in the city.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMService is awesome and everyoneService is awesome and everyone will make you feel as if you are family.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMService & Food beyond compareWhen looking for a spot with exceptional food, extensive wine list and excellent service this is the place you should look.
The porcini rub on the Delmonico steak is to die for and of course, who can forget the unforgettable Lobster mac n cheese. No matter what you choose though the food is devine. Ambiance personified and service was wonderful. They even had confetti on the table for my husband's birthday which I surprised him with along with a card. This is one place I would go back again and again.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, wonderful. Actually,As usual, wonderful.

The filet mignonette with bernaise melts in your mouth, but the hit is the lobster Mac and cheese.

We got stuck in traffic and got there an hour late. So we only had about 45 minutes for dinner. Our server Tracie Lee was very attentive and led us to a decorated table with a birthday card on it. She took our orders promptly and the four of us enjoyed a small free appy, 3 porterhouse steaks, an order of salmon, 3 sides, and a bottle of wine recommended by Tracie Lee. She gave us free cake and cookies for the birthday girl to go, and we made it for the curtain by 2 minutes. Fastest special dinner ever! Great job by restaurant!

The steaks were just a bit overcooked. Appetizers were expensive but outstanding. The wine list was a good one for the number of selections but was overpriced and more than 2X bottle prices on most of the wines. The service was really outstanding!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMYou can count on them to provideYou can count on them to provide consistantly good food in a great atmosphere.
