I’ve always loved Capital Grille. We’ve dined there many times and enjoyed the entire experience. The restaurant was definitely sub par on Saturday. The table wasn’t set when seated, we had to ask for the table to be cleaned off before dessert. The crumbs were dropped on the floor. Dessert came out with no silverware on the table. Cups without saucers, crystallized ice cream...a capital disappointment!

You mentioned traditionally having wonderful experiences with us and we would have wanted that same level of excellence to be present during your visit over the weekend as well, Dina. Please accept our heartfelt apologies for the uncharacteristic missteps that accompanied your party's visit on the 2nd. We promise to address things with our service team and trust these will not be recurring concerns. Thank you for this incredibly important feedback.

This is the third Capital Grille I've visited and I am happy to say, the same high standard applied. There was a small wait before being seated, but nothing awful and we could always have gone to the bar if we wanted to. The table was nice, our server appeared promptly to greet us and take our drink orders, he was also kind enough to explain some menu items. For appetizers, we had the crab and lobster cakes and a half dozen oysters. Four our entree, we shared the porterhouse steak with the au gratin potatoes. It is a 32 oz steak and more than enough for two people. We finished dinner with some sorbet and the coconut cream pie (which my husband said was the best he ever had because it was so light). Also, when making our reservation, I was asked if it was for a special occasion. I said yes, because it was my husband's birthday. It was very nice to find they had decorated the table and provided him with a birthday card (a very nice touch). All in all a lovely evening!

I had to run in and out for a quick pre-theatre dinner and they did a great job. Enjoyed the shrimp cocktail and the filet mignon. Good job Capital Grille!

First time at this location, I usually go to the Costa Mesa site. As usual, they never disappoint. Ordered the salmon and crab burger with truffle fries for lunch. It was delicious. The wait staff was extremely attentive without feeling hovering.

This is a lovely restaurant with fantastic food, but what makes it awesome is the server, Ed Sullivan.

I truly look forward to eating here just to have the pleasure of having him take care of us. He is the best. Always sweet and always gets everything perfect. Can't wait to go back again.

Although in the heart of Rockefeller Center you’d expect fast paced and noisy but the restaurant and staff are just the opposite. The restaurant is elegant, the staff friendly and the food always delicious! I think this location has a great vibe, not noisy it’s clean and again the food is fabulous.

Had a delicious dinner at The Capital Grille Saturday night, relatively last minute for 6 people. The service was phenomenal and attention was paid to every detail, to the point of the server bringing the table a dish of creamed spinach because she heard me saying I wanted it. Outstanding!

The Capital Grille was my go to business dinner choice for years. This experience was not one of the best.

The front desk was prompt and courteous and the wait staff attentive. However I made a mistake in ordering the veal chop - it was rather fatty and altogether too hard to eat around the bone and gristle.

My wife’s strip was perfect and we ordered the scalloped potatoes instead of the mashed (very good!). Asparagus was not what I expected- the shoots are usually rather thick and grilled to a crunchy finish but these were thin and limp.

We shared an wonderful prosciutto wrapped mozzarella, described as enough for two and it certainly was; actually a pretty good deal for this place. Divided into two plates and served like a complete dish. Excellent.

Decided to eat here as our final evening meal in NY - what a disappointment. After all the places and delicious food we’ve had this was the worst. Only good for the wine list really. Took 25mins to get the iPad to order the wine which only had 5% battery so I felt rushed. Service was overall terrible - we got some warm bread but wanted some wine with it. Once the food arrived it was mediocre. Husbands steak was over cooked which he pointed out but no real interest to correct it. Really dark and dingy inside with no atmosphere. They seemed more attentive to the larger parties I guess they were paying more. So if you are going as a couple avoid. There are much better places.

It was for my boyfriend's birthday. The table had sprinkled sequence and a hand written birthday card. We ordered the wagyu and wine. We ordered a garlic shrimp appetizer. Would definitely recommend it. I got the mushroom wagyu burger with the pinot noir. My boyfriend got the wagyu cheeseburger with the stag wine. The pairing was spectacular. Our waitress Sarah was a gem. She was there every momemt we needed something. I would definitely recommend and come back for a date night and any special occasion!

The venue itself is reasonably situated in midtown Manhattan. It's appearance is pleasing and we were promptly shown to our seating, which is always good upon arrival.

The service / waitress was not the best if I was to be frank; her tones were short and spent very little time at the table and may have been the shortest special list update in history. My wife was not amused with our interactions with her and thought that when you are paying +300$ for a meal that the waiting staff would be as good as silver service! It was most definitely not, I think the CG NY should look at their staff or perhaps give them more coaching on how to treat customers.

Our steaks; i had the Rib Eye, on the bone, 22oz. This was cooked the way I liked it and was happy with this. My wife had the 10oz Filet, and ended up pulling some hard gristle from her mouth, not good for a filet. So overall, A little disappointed in the food, but was not pleased with our service / waitress.

Regards, Dinner in NY
