    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.

  • Not So Generous Pour
    Jackie26VIP
    Dined on 7/8/2014
    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.

    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!

    We have eaten at this Capital Grille a few times and each time it is a great experience. We have liked it enough to come here for our anniversary and they made it extra special. Our waitress was really great and they brought out complimentary champagne and even took a photo for us. Capital Grille is the best steakhouse we have been to on Long Island, particularly the service.

    We went to Capital Grille to celebrate my daughters birthday. This was our third visit in 3 months. The first was the best. Our waitress offered us a champagne toast to celebrate,a nice touch! The following two visits put us at a table that felt as though it was randomly stuck in the aisle. The food was great,service a little slow but there's no shortage of noise. I will return but will specify the table and waitress I would prefer. It is worth the experience though just bring a fat wallet!

We was able to get a bottle of wine for $30 that was absolutely amazing. It was a moscato. My dad and I took my mom for Mother's Day.
