Ed went above and beyond and did not fail to meet the level of service we have gone to expect at any of the Capital Grille locations. Food was fabulous as well.

The steaks are amazing. The sesame tuna was delicious. Our waiter Lehi was extremely attentive. Everything from start to finish was awesome. Maria Rossi the manager is very warm and friendly.

The Capital Grille is just a copy-cat of most other steak houses in NYC. Solid but not spectacular. There are few differentiating qualities — but that’s not a criticism, it’s a fact. I would certainly come back, and this was not my first visit. My guests and I all enjoyed our meals. That being said, service was abysmal. In a relatively empty restaurant we had to virtually tackle our waiter to get his attention. Moreover, not sure I saw one waitress in the restaurant. Hard to believe there are no qualified women to hire as waitresses.

Always 5 stars for the Capitol Grille. I eat at many across the country and this one is by far one of the best. Service is great and food is excellent. Always cook my steak to perfection.

Love this place , it’s good for a drink or a meal. We split a steak for 2 and had drinks and dessert. Our server Briana was so friendly and knowledgeable. Will return again 😊

Let me start off by giving recognition to one of your staff members Rikki. He was respectful, understanding, memorable, and extraordinary in every way. The original server seemed fairly new which did not bother me as I am a very understandable individual. Rikki took it into his own hands to accommodate the fellas and I as he remembered serving me and my associates a few months prior. Our dinner was amazing as always along with the service and to top it all off Rikki surprised me with a very casual birthday dessert which was perfect to my liking. I just want to say thank you for stepping in a making the night enjoyable. I will be returning and hope to see Rikki again. Thanks again!

Generally a good experience, however, in my opinion, entree's weren't cleared in a timely manner - even after wait staff asked twice if we wanted them removed. We would have ordered dessert and after dinner drinks but after the long wait we decided to leave.

Nice ambiance. Staff is professional and friendly. Vibe is similar to a high end steak eatery franchise. You won't be disappointed.

The food and service were excellent. Anthony was our waiter. We went for my husband’s birthday. They decorated the table, left a birthday note and gave us a complimentary dessert. Would highly recommend.

Meals were served late, Waite staff was excellent but appeared over worked, after paying the check we stepped out of the restaurant to meet an Uber. The Uber driver was delayed due to construction. When we attempted to enter back in the restaurant (due to freezing weather) the front staff refused our entry stating they could not let us back into the restaurant. I would not return to this capital grille location.

We frequent this Capital Grille but have found the quality and service to be declining, this last time being the worst. Our server was friendly but service was lacking. Brussel sprouts were not cooked well, even the truffle fries were not of the usual quality we were used to. The cheesecake, which used to be our favorite dessert from here had a soggy crust and instead of offering something else or to replace it, our server agreed that looked bad and said they were probably all like that...

Our steak was cooked as requested. The Lobster bisque was too watery with not enough lobster. The New England claim chowder had an over abundance of potatoes and not enough claims.
