    I had a great dining experience at The Capital Grille. We attended a Mothers Day brunch and the level of customer service was top notch as they went out of there way to make us feel special. The food was first class, kudos to the chef for his creativity. The atmosphere was energetic and the noise level was perfect. I will definitely be returning to dine again.

    Took my husband for his birthday, the table was decorated along with a hand written birthday card. We brought our 22 month old daughter and they were beyond accomadating. Food was good although for some reason I always find the food better at the out if state locations like Texas and Florida. Overall great experience and will definitely be coming back!

    We went there to celebrate Mother's day early as well as celebrate my parents 45th wedding anniversary. Our server really made our evening such a night to remember for the parents, and grandkids as well. Would definitely recommend going there and would love to return. If you have a special occasion, think about celebrating at Capital Grille in Garden City.

    Since consistency defines a good restaurant, Capital Grill should be the definition of good restaurant. The two of us had a fillet and a porterhouse as we usually do and every time we come here we walk away thinking this was the best yet! Top it off with asparagus and mushrooms and you'll be looking to return soon.

  • Comparing to Capital Grille on 42nd
    MRCL
    Dined on 4/26/2014
    My opinion - save your money and go to the one on 42nd street in NYC. Menu is exactly the same. But everything from the clam chowder, to the salad, to the sliced filet was not as flavorful as the NYC location. It was not bad, but it was not excellent. Just an overall good. If you go to the NYC location, get the calamari appetizer, they are incredible. I didn't have that at the garden city location, so I can't say whether it's good there or not. Being it is the same menu, I would have expected the same food, but definitely a step or two below NYC location. Place is beautiful, service is excellent as expected when paying these prices. Will not return to Garden City location.

    Dined on 4/20/2014
    We are senior citizens, live nearby Roosevelt Field and are regular patrons of Long Island Steakhouses. Having tried many from Lugar's to Bryant to Franks, I must say that the Porterhouse left much to be desired. Lacked rich flavor and tenderness---certainly not worthy of its cost. The shrimp cocktail was very good, while the Onion Soup was better than average. Disappointing was the Bread Basket and the sides. Fries were OK but the creamed spinach was cold and a blob. Coffee was very good.

    Had dinner here Saturday night. Was pleasantly surprised to find availability for 4 with relatively short notice. We arrived 10 minutes late and were asked to go to the bar which we did but when we were escorted to our table 15 minutes later it appeared there was plenty of space for us. Hopefully they weren't just looking to drum up bar business but it certainly seemed that way. We skipped apps and ordered 2 porterhouses and 2 stuffed lobsters for the 4 of us. The steak was slightly overcooked but still very good and the lobster was great. The corn was tasty, the mashed potatoes were good, and we all liked the asparagus. The drinks were good but Lisa was absent when we were ready for another round. She was mostly attentive and very nice.

    We ordered the Grand Plateau which was a healthy display of shellfish, and also had the calamari which was cooked to perfection. The caesar salad was served cold with crisp salad and the dressing was delicious. We ordered the filet mignons, and the filet oscar was served with a crab cake topping. All servings were prepared as ordered and cooked to perfection! A trip to Capital Grille is always an enjoyable experience.

    Annual dining experience, as it is a little pricey, had the Beef Tenderloins with Butter poached lobster tail, OMG, decedent yes but oh so yummy!!! This is a class act all the way, friendly attentive staff, pleasant but not overly stuffy atmosphere. The potatoes Au Gratin is high calories but worth the splurge! Settle down, relax and enjoy the whole experience.

    Food was adequate but nothing I could have gotten at halve the cost in many other restaurants. Mixed drinks are also 50% overpriced. Over attentive attention by numerous employees was actually annoying. Waitress spent many minutes talking with friends or customers at an adjacent table much to our annoyance.---Just do your job! The background noise was annoying and sounded like we were in a local diner. Whatever happened to the melodic background music or wandering musicians that used to be standard in quality restaurants.

    Great Steak House! The food is really delicious and the ambiance is nice. Wait staff is great and very attentive but can sometimes seem like they are trying to push you out the door. It's good that they ask if you're on a leisure dining or in a rush, but still feels like everything is being rushed. Doesn't give you enough time to study the menu. Capital Grille is my favorite Steak House, and if i go there, I make sure I'll be dining and do not expect to have fast food service.

    Everything here was amazing. From when wee walked in, until we received a personal note from the chef with our take home. Service was spot on. Water was always filled, our waiter could not have been more attentive. My wife had only been to the one in DC and said this definitely was far better. If there was one complaint, I would say better signage to find it. It is located in the Roosevelt field mall, so be sure to look for the enterance. Atmosphere was great, cocktails, excellent and the food was phenomenal. Nice touch with the waiters handing out their card.

    We were taken on time for our reservation and later mentioned it was my birthday. We were given a taste of butternut squash soup while waiting for our main dish (yum) and the cheesecake with berries was absolutely to die for. Everything was cooked perfectly and there were options for me (a gestational diabetic) without feeling completely deprived so that I could enjoy the cheesecake for dessert..

    Visited Capital Grille in Garden City. I was a bit dissapointed with the parking situation there. Most of the close spots were reversed for Valet - and looking at how the valet parked cars I was not about to hand my keys over to them. So I had to park about .4 mile away. Once inside the service and food was excellent as it is in other Capital Grille's. Dress code not enforced at this one. I assume because it is attached to the Roosevelt Field Mall. I think I would visit the Capital Grille in NYC insted but if you do not want to travel into NYC it has same service and food just atmosphere and parking will annoy you a bit.

    From the moment we valet parked our car to the moment we were seated was less than 5 minutes. We were treated with the outmost professional and courteous staff from the hostess to our waiter Kumar which I would definetly request. His knowledge of the whole menu the specials and their wines was very welcome. I can probably ramble about the service the food the wines but I'm sure I'll run out of space and time. Bottom line ....... Excellent Excellent Excellent.Did I mention that the food was awesome. Thank you for a dinning experience that we will remember for a long time to come.
