    Capital Grille is still my favorite steakhouse and Cassidy, our waitress, could not do enough. My good friend and I both ordered Porterhouse cuts, I ordered it a Medium Plus and he ordered a Medium. The asst. staff later arrived with our steak and sides and they looked fine. At about half way into the meal we realized that our steaks had been switched. I had noticed mine was under cooked, however, my friend brought it to my attention as well. We decided not to send them back, or even make a fuss, however, going forward I will request for a marker be placed on the cooked steak (e.g., a decorative toothpick) denoting a Medium Plus temperature.

    Celebrating a friend's birthday at Capital Grille on 42nd St. makes the occasion special. They reserved us a very nice table sprinkled with multi-colored balloon cut-outs and a card with birthday greetings leaning against the table lamp. Instead of bringing us the dessert menu, Brenda surprised us with an elongated desert dish that has a round cheesecake with a candle on one side, Happy Birthday in the center and chocolate cake with whipped cream on the other side. The plate had four kinds of colorful berries strewn all around with mint leaves. We were so pleased with the decadent and right portions of sweets to share after my friend made a wish and blew the candle! If you don't want to be disappointed in treating someone for a special occasion, make a reservation at Capital Grille on 4nd St.!!!

    Had a wonderful dinner on a Saturday night. We were in on the early side 6:30 and the atmosphere had good energy (right amount of buzz with out being frenetic so that you could still hear dinner conversation at a table for 6). The filet with the gorgonzola was delicious. We had the creamed spinach, truffle fries, and lobster mac and cheese as sides. All very tasty.

    We are regular diners at the Cap Grille in Pgh due to its outstanding food and service. Our dinner here bore little resemblance to its Pgh counterpart. Last nights soup ,tuna and steak were served very cold and side dishes were forgotten. Our waiter was inattentive and service was slow. Despite management's taking the 3 entrees off of our bill our 6 guests (all New Yorkers ) I am sure were wondering why we chose such a mediocre restaurant in a city known for its great dining.

    Everyone was great. I asked if they could seat us away from the crowd. I also asked if they could bring dessert out with a candle. They did more than that. Upon arrival they had a birthday card for my sister, and the table had confetti spread across it. They had dessert with the candle and a" happy birthday" was printed on the plate with chocolate. My sister had a great time, which is what matters. The food was top notch, I had Chilean sea bass, and my sister filet mignon. Both were cooked to perfection, the Chilean sea bass melted in my mouth. The steak was a perfect medium rare. Capital Grille at the Chrysler will not be forgotten; and it was just lunch I can't imagine how much better dinner would have been.

    The food was really good. My boyfriend and I both got a type of steak with a different sauce. Both were really good. And its great that they let you get smaller portions of the side dishes to share.

    We've celebrated many occasion here and this time, they really went above and beyond for us, starting with heart confetti sprinkled all over our table, a complimentary champagne toast, and a surprise and free celebratory dessert that had Happy Anniversary written on the plate (stenciled cocoa powder). The bone-in 16 ounce filet mignon was umami to the max and the lamb chops-- unbeatable. We also shared the lobster bisque, lobster mac, and bacon blue cheese wedge salad. Hubby also had half a bottle of red wine. Best time we had at Capital Grille and thank you to our waitress Tracy.

    In addition to the food what I found really amazing was the service. Our steaks were just a little undercooked and they fixed that in a jiffy without hesitation and brought fresh, hot side dishes back with them without us even asking. The steak was delicious but their mashed potatoes and creamed spinach were amazing. The cheesecake is must have for dessert so save room!

    We went to the Capital Grille to celebrate our anniversary and because we had a gift card to put towards dinner. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised. The staff made us feel special as soon as we walked in by wishing us a happy anniversary and then bringing us to a nice table decorated with little hearts to to help celebrate the occasion. Our meal was very good and at the end they treated us to a glass of champagne each as well as great dessert. We would definitely go back again.

    This was our second time at The Capital Grille Chrysler Center, and it just keeps getting better! The service both at the bar and table were top-notch. The staff was extremely friendly, accommodating and on top of our needs. Of course, the food was delicious. The ambiance was great - we love the decor and architecture of the Chrysler Center location. No stone was left unturned, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. We can't wait to go back!

    Been at Capital Grille multiple times and it never fails to impress. Yes, it is an elite NYC steakhouse and priced accordingly, however, the food is delicious and the service is impeccable. For special occassions where steak is on the venue you cannot go wrong here, really. On a more basic note, the server bread is always warm and the butter is simply the best ever (e.g., sweet and tasty). My highest recommendation.

    We were fortunate to get a reservation for 5 people on short notice Friday evening. I noted in the box on OpenTable that it was to be a birthday dinner. When we arrived at the restaurant a few minutes later the table had been sprinkled with confetti and a birthday card awaited. Dinner and service was great and without asking a birthday dessert with candles arrived. I've hosted and attended work events here before and have always been impressed with their easy going arrangements and service. Very nice and fairly priced wine list. Excellent food.
