    Took my parents here for their 31st wedding anniversary and called ahead to mention our reason for dining. Our experience was absolutely fantastic, everyone at Capital Grille went above and beyond to create a memorable dining experience for us. Our waiter Jeremy was very attentive and the food was of the best quality. I could not have asked for a better dinner experience for my parents, will definitely be going back to celebrate other occasions at Capital Grille-Garden City!

    After much consideration of where to go, Capital Grille was absolutely the best decision I could have made to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday. By sharing the special occasion prior to coming with the restaurant, I had no idea how the staff would go above and beyond with such awesome acknowledgement. From the subtle, yet simple table decoration to each of the staff wishing her a happy birthday ending the evening with a champagne toast and keepsake photo was such a nice touch. KUDOS to you Capital Grille and thanks for an amazing dining experience, one in which my daughter proclaimed was her "best birthday ever!"

    As always, a great evening! Although it was a very crowded Saturday night (and a holiday weekend), we were greeted warmly and seated promptly in a comfortable booth. Understated/elegant decor and jazz soundtrack added to the ambiance. "Team" service was seamless, as a host of people proceeded to devote themselves to making sure we had everything we could possibly want. The lobster bisque special was outstanding--velvety, with what seemed like a whole lobster swimming in it. Filets were cooked to perfection, sides nicely presented and ample. Recommend highly, and will return soon!

    Our visit was to celebrate becoming grandparents. The server, Dany, was exceptional. His knowledge of the menu was impressive. The food was well prepared and delicious. Dany came by several times to make sure we were satisfied. At the end if the meal, the restaurant provided a lovely dessert with Congratulations written in chocolate. A very nice touch and the perfect ending to a fabulous meal.

    From the moment you walk in you feel very welcome. We had drinks at the bar before dinner, the bartender was very respectfully of people's privacy and very quick to serve. We went to our table where the wait staff was very knowledgable of the menu. We were not rush out, each course was brought out with the appropriate amount of time in between,

    We had been to The Capital Grille in Garden City several times before but the service we received this time was above and beyond what you would expect even at their price point. Molly Costello was our server and I swear she was in my head and could anticipate my every wish. After I ordered their "Generous Pour" wine tasting, I relied on her selections to be paired with all of my courses. I was not disappointed. I ordered the porcini Delmonico steak and it was to die for. My dinner guests had filet mignon and they were equally pleased. Everything was cooked to perfection as was the presentation. Compliments to the entire staff for making our visit a very memorable one.

    I cannot begin to express how happy we were with both the food and service at The Capital Grille in Garden City. We were seated on time, the server Manny was one of the best I have ever had. Pleasant, professional and very knowledgeable of all aspects of the menu. He made the experience personal, as we mentioned we were celebrating my daughter going overseas to study and he brought back "CONGRATS" little confetti to put on the table. A very simple example of going above to make the guest feel good. Oh yea, the food - from appetizer to main course just perfect, prepared 100% and completely devoured by all six of us, no leftovers!

    I made a request for " belated birthday, quiet table, we want to talk". Could not have been more perfect. Fabulous unobtrusive service, nice table with card acknowledging Birthday, yummy food, great complimentary dessert for the birthday boy. The "generous pours" were so large that I did not finish all of them for fear of DWI. A memorable experience with no attitude. The Delmonico was big enough for my husband's dinner the next day.

    This restaurant has made the top 3 on my list. We started our night with a spectacular server Lisa Clark. She was very knowledgeable about the wines and was very attentive to the table. The appetizer's were a delight to have the Lobster and Crab cakes were amazing and the pan fried calamari was cooked to perfection. There daily soup was a lobster bisque made to order. It had a great flavor and a generous amount of lobster in the soup. For the main coarse we had the Tuna it was seared to perfection and the choice of there 3 dipping sauces were a perfect pairing. The desserts were a great finish to a great meal. We will definitely be returning again to enjoy the service and the food.

    Picked this place to celebrate our 36th anniversary. Glad we did. They had our reservations, the staff was very friendly, we were promptly seated in a very nice booth. They were kind enough to have an anniversary card waiting at the table. The waiter and staff were very attentive and the steaks we ordered was worth the price they charge. Would recommend it to others.

    The service,food,staff and management were all excellent. Very accommodating. This restaurant is my favorite steakhouse. We have been to other notable steakhouses in Long Island and in the city and still this tops them all with the outstanding service and excellent food. It is not also excellent in steaks but everything else. I have had seafood and lamb chops as well and they were excellent quality cuts. Need to try this restaurant if you haven't done so.

    Dined on 8/17/2014
    In the past, we have participated in the Generous Pour promo and it has proved to be a very enjoyable evening. On this occasion, my brother-in-law was taking my wife out for her birthday and we were excited that this promo was still going on. However, we were VERY disappointed with our server. He immediately informed us that this was a "pairing event" and it became clear that he wanted to control the wines. He poured us the first 2 whites and we were nearly done with our appetizers when he disappeared. As the steaks were being served, he poured the Pinot Noir and again was MIA. Finally, he showed up with the cab and meritage as we were finishing our dinners. Other tables had multiple varietals to sample concurrently. But not us!
