Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "I dine all over nyc & love city dining but decided to try the garden city location! Food is good but not the best presentation & staff was not the most focused! I'm sure they were maybe just off today but if your fine dining by the mall it's #1"

  • "Service was beyond awesome I went here for my girlfriends birthday dinner and believe me everything was amazing...our server was Richard G and he was beyond awesome. I made reservations via opentable and as soon as we checked in my girlfriend was greeted by a "happy birthday" we got seated in less than 3 mins. Once we went to our table a happy birthday card was already there for my girlfriend. Very classy the good was amazing the service was awesome I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a new eating experience."

  • "Capital Grill was awesome, from the beginning great service, great suggestions for food and drinks. loved the generous pour menu. Ambiance was very classy, elegant and the place was not noisy at all. The waitress as well as one of the executive chefs was very helpful with suggesting what to eat as well as what wine to pair with the food we were eating. I not only will be going back for the delicious steaks, seafood and drinks but i will highly recommend it to anyone. Capital Grill has my vote any day!"

  • "I brought my daughter to the Capital Grill to celebrate her birthday. Everyone was very friendly and wished her a happy birthday. Sparkles were placed on the table along with a birthday card thanking her for coming to Capital Grill. The fillet mignon was very tender and the sides were very good too. they took a birthday picture which was given to her and presented a very nice birthday desert. I would come again especially as a treat since it was expensive for me."

  • "My husband and I frequently dine at The Capital Grille. Each year we celebrate our wedding anniversary at that restaurant. It's a very low key place with excellent service, great food and wines. Most dishes are very good but we especially enjoy for appetizer the calamari and for main course the whole lobster taken out of its shell. Love the mashed potatoes."

  • "Have never been disappointed when we have gone to Capital Grille. A restaurant that prides itself on customer service, they are par to none. The lobster bisque is a must have. It's like having a 1/4 lb lobster in a bowl. Their signature steak the delmonico is always a hit. My suggestion is to have them slice it for you in the back and great for sharing."

  • "Went here for a birthday, and had made a note during the reservation. When we arrived they had a card and some little decorations waiting at the table. The staff was extremely helpful and nice. Our waiter, Terrell was the best. The food was amazing. Enjoyed everything at the Gapital Grille. I was impressed by it all."

  • "My comments should not be taken as complaints, but only as observations. Since my wife and I eat here every four or five weeks I suppose we've begun to be recognized because last month my porterhouse was presented to me for approval before it was cooked. That was a nice touch and I had come to expect it this time. Of course it didn't happen, although the steak was as good as ever. Additionally, when seated, since we were both wearing dark clothing, we expected to be offered black cloth napkins, a usual Capital accommodation that went missing here. It was swiftly corrected upon our request. As you can appreciate, one has to dig deep to find fault with Capital Grill."

  • "While I am a fan of the Capital Grill, I am not a fan of their "Generous Pour" event going on right now. They waitress explained that you would receive an unlimited amount of wine from the generous pour menu throughout your meal for a set price. Given how the event was described, it was a no brainer. However, the event should have been called the "Not So Generous Pour". The waitress would pour just about a taste of a wine but never actually fill your glass. I was looking forward to enjoying a nice glass of wine with my dinner. If the event was intended to be just a taste of each wine, the restaurant should have said so and then I would have opted to just order a bottle of wine instead."

  • "Every time I dine at capital grille it is an amazing experience. This time was for my anniversary and they made the night outstandingly memorable. The little extras, like little hearts on the table, shows that they actually care.about their patron's experience. This is why capital grille will always be my favorite restaurant. Great food, great service, great ambiance. You can't ask for more."

  • "Food and service good but we always bring our own wine corkage fee $50 per bottle we usually go with few other couples that is outrageous $150 just for them to open wine bottles. Big turnoff"

  • "We celebrated two birthdays on this latest visit to Capital Grill. It was a delightful experience. They go out of their way to make special occasions, extra special. The waitress was wonderful. She acknowledged the two birthdays as soon as we were seated. There were two birthday cards on the table from the restaurant with hand written notes. The table had some decorations to make it more festive. After dinner, they brought over a champagne toast, very nice touch. None of our diners ordered dessert but they brought over two platters with a few dessert samplers from the dessert menu. Happy Birthday was written on each platter in chocolate. They also took a picture of our group and gave us a hard copy of the picture before we left!!"

  • "Dining here is always a pleasure, from the moment you enter until the moment you leave. The staff is pleasant and welcomes you, takes you to your seat, and calls you by your name. They asked us if we were celebrating a special occasion. When we told them it was our anniversary and they came over with an anniversary card and some lovely little red hearts to decorate the table. The meal, as always, was wonderful. Seared Tuna, perfectly cooked, with ginger rice and three dipping sauces. Salads were fresh and delicious. Everything, in fact, was delicious. Then they brought a dessert sampler on the house. Thanks for a great experience. We'll keep coming back."

  • "Don't let the fact that this restaurant is in a mall give you a preconception of the food quality. I have eaten at their location in the city and was surprised to find this one was just as good. The hostess' great you enthusiastically, the wait staff are professionals, the décor is beautiful and clean, and most importantly, the food was great. the seafood platter was fresh, the steak was like butter and cooked as I asked for it. The side dishes were the ones found at most steak houses and very good. All in all I would recommend this place, of course a little pricey like every other steak house but no disappointments here."

  • "We had an excellent experience at the Capital Grille! We were celebrating my husbands birthday, which I mentioned in my reservation on opentable.com. When we arrived, they had the table tastefully decorated with confetti and a birthday card. They also provided complimentary champagne, a birthday dessert & a picture taken at the table by our amazing waiter, John, to commemorate our wonderful evening to take home. It was a superb experience. We will definitely be recommending this restaurant & we will certainly be back! To top it off the food was outstanding!"

  • "We've become regulars here. I know it's sad but it's become routine. We always order the same thing. It's become habit. We come here once a month, she gets a filet butterflied, medium rare plus (it's a CG thing), and I get the porterhouse rare. We start with a lettuce wedge with tomatoes and bacon (which admittedly could be better) and then to the main event which couldn't be better in a million years with asparagus and mushrooms. As we were enjoying our meal we both agreed that this particular meal was truly outstanding and then we laughed because we remembered that we said that last time also! "
