  • "The food was great and our waiter was fantastic. We had the generous pour special. $25 per person for 7 different wines as much as you wanted."

  • "This was our 5th visit to this restaurant. We decided to try their fish. As a steak place I would stick to meat. Their meat dishes are really special."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed The Capital Grille. The food was amazing, service was great and reasonably priced. Our server was Amanda, she was also very nice. I strongly recommend the Lobster Mac n Cheese. OMG."

  • "We visited your restaurant 3 times and 1 time in the Times/Life building,1 in Baltimore and in Las Vegas. My favorite was Vegas but the Chrysler Building is always our favorite when we are in town in NYC. I have to say my only complaint was, and this might sound odd is that the steaks were just not the great flavor expected.My husband had the Filet bone-in and our granddaughter and her mother had the 10oz filet. And all said they were fine, just not great! We ordered one medium and the other two medium well which I admit, should never be ordered past medium. But these two girls only eat their steaks that way and they are avid steak eaters.. so no matter how it is prepared, it should still taste better then any steak they ever had. Too loud!"

    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Too big, too busy, too loud, too big portions. This restaurant is clearly popular with the office crowd around Grand Central who want a huge steak, lots of drinks and lots of noise, spending lots of money. If however you want a pleasant dinner, this is probably not the place for you."

  • "Entertained clients for dinner. Outstanding. Have dined at this restaurant before with the exact same results. Also have been to Capital Grilles in other cities with the same results. Will be back!"

  • "As always, food was excellent. Service was excellent as well. Wait staff is always readily available to refill your drink or bring whatever you need without having to look around and find "your waiter." Each time I have gone here, the fish and steaks were excellent, and they are more than happy to prepare the entrees in whatever way you request despite it being different from the menu. Only issue/complaint I had this visit was that I gave the hostess a $250 gift card to apply to the bill before it arrived to the table as I was taking out some friends for their birthdays and wanted to casually pay for most of it. However when the bill came the 250 was not applied and I had to remind the waiter in front of my guests about the card."

  • "We went for Father's Day and my husband got the royal treatment. Champagne, a gift and a souvenir photo. Our waiter was gracious, made good recommendations to us and warm and friendly. The food was all excellent. The steak could melt in your mouth. This was our 4th visit and we've never been disappointed. We sat in the back section this time, didn't have the view, but it was quiet for my husband who wears a hearing aid. Can't wait to return."

  • "I always enjoy the Capital Grille, which is why it is my go to place to entertain clients. The wait staff is always engaging, friendly and informative. The food was good; I did like the Halibut which was the suggestion from Brad, and my clients were pleased with there selection. Thanks Capital Grille for a job well done~"

  • "Went for a business lunch with 5 people, three of whom ordered a lobster roll. All three got a few rubbery pieces of lobster on a stale bun. Come on guys, its lobster and mayonnaise on a grilled roll. they didn't even split the roll, just through a spoon of lobster meat on the top and shipped it out. Awful. never again."

  • "Conveniently located near Grand Central Terminal, this steakhouse is a must! Steak is cooked perfectly and appetizers and vegetables are equally good. Restaurant is very popular, so please be sure to have reservations. Highly recommend."

  • "I have eaten at the Capital Grille with clients many times and the one thing I prize is consistency. The service is outstanding. They go out of their way without being intrusive to make you happy. Food is excellent. Whether it is the steak or seafood you cannot go wrong."

  • "I have been to this Capital Grille several times and have always found it to be an excellent restaurant but clearly times have changed. The service was atrocious. The did not have the wine I ordered from the wine menu, and then did not have the second choice I ordered. They chose and brought out what they had. The waiter spilled food on me and simply said, no problem despite my shirt and tie being stained. The wait staff were all over us and seemed to think they were part of our party, speaking to us constantly and this was a business dinner. Overall a very poor experience and I will not take the risk again. There are many fine steak houses in Manhattan. "

  • "The answer to the usual NY steak house ... this place has tables far enough apart you are not sitting on top of folks and next table. Best of all is the service. Waiters like Carlton are like waiters of years ago. He is the best"

  • "The staff made it a memorable evening. Jill the manager and our waiter john were just great. It made a very good meal the best. My compliments to all. I will be back for more!"

    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "I came here with my parents after my graduation ceremony (after accidentally going to the other midtown location). We all ordered steak with a few sides. The service was very good, our waiter was very attentive, and he made good recommendations. The food was excellent and to our specifications, but overall the experience was nothing out of the ordinary. I would recommend it for certain good food and service."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "The food and service at the Chrysler Capital Grille are always top notch. I have eaten at many Capital Grille's around the country and this is by far the best one. I have even heard employees from other Capital Grille's say the food is so much better here. "
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "I made reservations for 7:45pm and we were not seated until 8:20pm. I had my clients with me and they were less than happy. The staff made it up with free appetizers but it ruin the momentum I was going for with my clients. We had to rush and eat in order to make our flight. The overall experience was HORRIBLE."
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "Tried this restaurant while visitng Manhattan and was able to book a table with no issues. The food was excellent, although having to order your sides separately was a bit off-putting. The drinks are homest pours -- none of this 250ml nonsense, and the cocktails were strong. The service was fantastic; one of the best dining experiences I've had."
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "I love it. Consistently virtually perfect. Annie our server was great. Food always excellent. I recommend it highly. Great midtown location."

  • "The Capital Grille is always great. The food is delicious and the staff is very friendly. The mashed potatoes are the best around. The filet melts in your mouth"

  • "This wasn't just lunch; it was a dining experience. Our server Bappi was friendly, accommodating, and professional. And the food was impeccable. every single thing I tasted was truly perfection. Even the bread that they brought to the table was hot, fresh, and delicious. The appetizers, meals, cocktails, desserts--all of it was perfectly and thoughtfully prepared. And they brought me something that wasn't on the lunch menu, specially made just for me! Love that!"

  • "We are never disappointed and although part of a well oiled machine, this restaurant makes you feel comfortable and the experience is always enjoyable and feels "local" . We often eat at the bar and it is a top notch experience, food, service and always a welcome feel."

  • "I have been many times there, but my business partner has never been there before, he is a meat lover, so I invited him for lunch to celebrate his 50th birthday, in my reservation I asked for a special table; actually it was great, the table was excellent, they had decorated the table for the occasion, we got champagne, dessert and a card; couldn't have asked for a better time and, as always, lunch was great. "

  • "The steaks at Capital Grille are outstanding. The architecture at the 42nd street location is particularly scenic, due to the stunning glass walls and ceilings in one of the dining areas that looks out onto the street and upwards towards the Chrysler building. While the food, wine and ambience were great, what truly made this an unforgettable dining experience was the customer service. This was the best service I have ever had in my life. The restaurant went far above the call of duty to provide us with an incredibly memorable evening. We felt completely pampered and taken care of in a way that we have never experienced at any other restaurant. A big thank you to Capital Grille!"

  • "Consistent high-level service that is attentive without being intrusive. Basically a steak house but with a full menu of excellent entrees and sides. Very professional ambience but good for a date or a night out as well."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "I have eaten here many times and the food and service is generally good. This may have been an off day for them. The server literally threw the entree on the table and walked away while I was asking for fresh pepper. My dining partner had ordered the tuna with sticky rice, which she has had before, and was unhappy with the cut of tuna served. I will give the restaurant a rest before I try it again."

  • " I ALWAYS have a great steak here. I order the Porcini ribbed Delmonico, not cheap, but it is amazing every time. I love dining here, it's a beautiful room too."

  • "The restaurant was dark and cozy with Rat Packers crooning a bit too loudly for the sparse 9:30 pm crowd. We ate at the bar and found the service to be personal and prompt. The food was very good (porterhouse cooked a perfect rare) and the check was expected h.igh"
