Our waiter was so disinterested in serving us. Never told us any specials. Came over and asked “Do you know what you want?”

I’ve eaten at CGs all over the place because I know what to expect. This in location was an exception and not in a good way. I wouldn’t got back to this location again. I brought my daughter here for her birthday dinner and it was a complete waste of money and time. She didn’t feel like we were eating anywhere special with the service we experienced. Just terrible. I will state one last piece here, given the current climate of staff shortages, I give a lot of leyway on service. This was not the situation here. The restaurant was almost empty and we were still treated horribly and rudely.

My food was good, but mom's food was not so good. I had the bass dinner and she had the grilled chicken and I ordered a serving of Au gratin potatoes. I informed the waitress that the potatoes were undercooked and they took them back and rewarded them. They still were undercooked. So, I ordered the regular potatoes, which were fine. I asked for my check. Then my mom informed me that her meal was really bad. So, I told the waitress. She took my cc and told the manager of the situation. Knowing that the latter meals was unsatisfactory they still charged the total balance. Them the manager came to the table to tell me that there was nothing that he can do about it. I told him that I saw the waitress tell him about everything before he ran my cc.

Outstanding meal. Strip & poached lobster tail were frankly unbelievably delicious. Total meal was excellent. Not inexpensive, but that comes with a good restaurant in NYC. The wine list was limited in MHO, not enough good lower-priced wine options (look at the menu first and you'llsee what you're working with). We will absolutely be back, but are now forewarned on $.

Wonderful experience! Our server Nicole took great care of us and was very attentive and kind. Food was great and we were able to enjoy a nice holiday meal with drinks snd desert. We ate for 2.5 hours and never felt rushed- a true luxury in the city! Definitely an expensive dinner, but well worth it for the experience. Booth felt luxe and covid-safe, and the music level was perfect- I could actually hear my family without shouting lol. Booked at the last minute so this was a really pleasant surprise!

2021 Xmas eve dinner and it couldn’t have gone any worse, our dinning time it was different for all in the same table,
our son’s meal came uncooked , then his side showed up 32 minutes later, my wife’s meal came 20 minutes after his and mine 25 minutes after Her’s …. Two servers and they couldn’t get it together, we had to ask food runners to get the servers to bring more drinks …. I told them how terrible their service was and they both laugh… on the way out a manger said she will address the issue and contact us but she never did ,,,
We had visit all Florida locations and we never had an experience like this….

Sat upstairs. Ordered drinks, took forever. Server was not the best. He wasn’t that busy. Lots of empty tables in the restaurant. Disappointed. Was really looking forward to Christmas Eve dinner. My steak was cold. Temperature cold. Then he brought it back and it was way over cooked. He was MIA or I would have asked for a new steak. Disappointed in Capital Grille. I love the one in Sarasota. Won’t recommend this location to anyone. My fiancés cousins steak was awful as well. Server was MIA. He would have ordered something else. After spending $465 without tip you would expect spot on service and great food. Wish we would have chose somewhere else.

If money is not an issue and you want consistently high quality food served well in a beautiful ambience than this place is for you. Their steaks and seafood are one of the best. Service is usually fantastic but our server was slammed in the middle of our meal so she somewhat forgot about us for a little while. However she did not rush us at all and let us enjoy a special Christmas Eve meal.

What a wonderful experience. I was dining at the Capital Grille with my new soulmate/girlfriend before going to see Billy Joel at the Garden. It all started when I asked the waiter for two glasses of Sauvignon Blanc. He asked “New Zealand, France or California”? I said “the best”. He said “New Zealand” and the evening got better right then. My friend had lobster bisque and I had a field green salad for starters. Got our entrees, we both had seafood dishes. She had the salmon, I had the sea bass. Both came with green vegetables and were excellent. The waiter gave us space and time and joked with us about how many shows had closed down on Broadway. We were among the lucky ones. A truly memorable night.

The usual interior and style expected of a U.S. steakhouse, big booths and nice classy decor. A little too chilly inside the Restaurant during the cold day we visited.
Menu at lunchtime is limited and disappointing, no sauces to accompany the steaks? No normal fries, only sickly truffle fries. Service was attentive and professional. The wine list is extensive but lacks a number of the classics that you gravitate towards, no Duckhorn varieties and only one fringe variety of Caymus but not the principle.
For 3 people with a good Merlot our bill came to $335 plus the tip! Top-end by any bodies measurement and we expected something more special, an experience but it wasn’t.
6.5/10 was our score.

Was looking forward to eating at Capital Grill NY for steak but for some reason my fillet wasn’t as tasty as my prior visits. My fillet just didn’t have the taste and was a little tough. I do like my steaks medium plus and think sometimes because I do I don’t get always the same cut they advertise. That could’ve been some of the reason as I’ve run into this during travels. If you like your meat cooked a little more they medium they assume you don’t know steak so they give you either an end cut or the toughest piece of the filet.

My team & I have always been fans of the Cap Grille & we often dine when traveling to different cities. Unfortunately our experience at the West 51st location was very disappointing. I ordered the lobster bisque, which was a “Special”….there was certainly nothing special about this bisque. Terrible & fishy. We had a team member with us that was vegetarian. He was offered 1 of 2 choices, made his choice and then was served what WASN’T ordered. Waiter told him the kitchen messed up….but we suspect it was our very unpleasant waiter. He seemed annoyed by our mere presence. The team will certainly not be in a hurry to hit the next Cap Grille.

Although the host/hostess were very pleasant & cocktails were excellent!
