    The waitress told us the sides (asparagus) would be enough for 2 but when 2 people ordered 1 asparagus together she brought 2 big portions for the whole table. is that just a way to make more money? when others don't order it one should have asked at least.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006

    Fantastic! Most impressive was the warm and cheerful attitude of everyone on staff...from the manager to the busboy. Everyone greeted us, remembered our names,and remembered the occasion we were celebrating. We were treated like celebs. Food was consistently delicious and cooked perfectly to our order. Foodies may be deterred by prejudices against chain restaurants but this restaurant does not see itself as part of the crowd and seems to aim to stand on its own pursuit of excellent food and impeccable, warm service. I will not hesitate to return!

    I really want to say I was blown away by this place but I really wasn't. There really wasn't anything unique or special about this place. The food was enjoyable but didn't blow me away. The service was the best part. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and did an excellent job. I've eaten at several places like this and the Capital Grille didn't really stand out. Just your average ordinary Steak place. It's a good consistent place and you know you won't be disappointed. If you're looking for a good steak and fancy steakhouse to eat it at, this place will do. If you're looking for something to "WOW!" you, you're not going to get it here.

    Capital Grille has great steaks but the a la carte menu tends to get a bit pricey. It is a great place to go where you can have a conversation without being involved in other peoples conversations and likewise. The table spacing is the main reason we go there. Good steaks are easy to find in Manhattan.

    Really terrific restaurant - nicely decorated, excellent service, delicious food - the building itself and the dining room are fantastic! I just loved the extra touch with the "leftover" take home bag - the shopping bag had a very nice note attached that was certainly a nice touch. All in all, we had a excellent lunch date at the Capital Grille.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004VIP
    Dined on 5/13/2008
    I have to say that Capital Grille is my favorite restaurant in the world and I've been going since it opened. Tuesday night was a real disappointment with the service. My filet mignon was part fat which I've never experienced at your restaurant. I usually polish off a 14oz by myself...needless to say they took it off the bill, which was extremely nice of them. What just made the dinner experience not enjoyable was the waiter who was lacking tremendously in personality and missing in action for a good part of our meal. Usually the waiters are top notch checking to see if all is ok and if you want more drinks..etc. Was not happening Sorry for the bad review but I have not lost faith in the restaurant but will never have that waiter.

    Service is better than your typical NYC steakhouse with friendly and attentive service. My steak was a little overdone, but they whipped out another one surprisingly quick. Great place to go where you want to have a conversation without having to scream and the pace of service takes its cue from the customer. They don't rush you out the door like some other places.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004
    Dined on 5/2/2008
    Our server (David) was fantastic, but the food was not consistent with the other Capital Grilles we have tried. The Washington D.C. location is far more superior in quality, and was the reason we tried the NYC location, which is our home location. For instance, the Delmonico at the NYC location was dressed with a strange sauce (maybe based on A1 steak sauce...I'm not sure) which diminished the natural flavor of the meat and gave it a cheap, tart aftertaste. Moreover, the steak arrived at the table while I was in the restroom, which was a major disappointment. At steak houses, I think most people relish the fresh-from-the-inferno sizzle of that first bite. The NYC location needs to honor this part of the steak-dining ritual.
