Diner Reviews
  • "Capital Grille has been a favorite for excellent food and service. This time, our experience could have been better. The table service crew seemed unpolished. We had to ask for bread plates. Appetizer plates weren't removed before the entree was served. Four people descended noisily on our table to remove those plates and serve the main course at the same time. The main courses were shopped to the wrong people twice! Our salmon was over cooked after ordering medium rare. The bread basket was removed at the start of the main course, instead of afterward."

  • "We went to Capital Grille at the Chrysler Center to celebrate my daughter turning 21. It was restaurant week so the place was packed yet we were treated to a table covered with birthday confetti and had the best service and most delicious meal! Our server Mony made us feel like we were the only people he looked after that night and our food was fantastic! We opted for the generous pour wine tasting and really enjoyed the many unique and interesting wine selections! I would highly recommend the Capital Grille to anyone!!"

  • "Both our steak was off, not sure would go back again. On another note, clam chowder was nice, like the bread. Location is good."

  • "Good basic steakhouse food, well prepared but a very, very noisy glitzy place. Great waiter and great restaurant week menu. They made a nice effort to note a birthday in our group and seated as away from the noisiest part but it was pretty loud."

  • "Truly enjoyed our dining experience during restaurant week along with the "open pour" wine tasting special. Since we were in the back right room the noise level was fine, however, in the open bar area it could be a little noisy. Highly recommend as the food and service were fantastic!"

  • "Second time this week I have come here for NYC Restaurant Week. The food quality, the Generous Pour wine program and the attentive and personable staff on all levels all make it a great dining destination."

  • "I'd never been here before, so it was great to be able to experience it. They have gorgeous architecture and super professional and attentive wait staff (although one waitron did address my boyfriend and I both as "ladies"). The food was delicious from the bread basket to the sirloin to the flourless chocolate cake (the last being my favorite!). Would come again."

  • "We celebrated a birthday The Capital Grille. My party was late, but the staff handled this inconvenience very graciously. Taylor promised a fabulous table and we were not disappointed. The Capital would be perfect choice for any occasion, but having the added bonus of dining during Restaurant Week added to evening. Our captain, Christian, was attentive and charming. And the food was excellent. A lovely evening was had by all."

  • "I took a client here for lunch who was from out of town. At first I thought it was going to be "stuffy" as there were a lot of men in suits standing at the entrance waiting for tables and it was a dark entrance. BUT, it turned out that the food was excellent and our seat was in a great spot in the middle of the restaurant. We had reservations which I would definitely recommend making or be prepared to wait. Overall a great pick for my client and he enjoyed the place and that's what matters most!"

  • "This was the only issue, had to send back meat for more through cooking - had ordered medium well and it was close to raw. Watched two other tables have to send there meat back in the time we were there for lunch. Rest of food was good, well presented and tasted good."

  • "Met Lady friend there for lunch...Best chopped salad I have ever had, my guest was impressed with the restaurant, she had never been to a Capital Grill. I have many time...I consider it one of the best restaurants in NYC...recommend it to all my business associates who come into NYC for meetings."

  • "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!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "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!"

    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "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."

  • "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"
