Attentive service, helpful during our entree selection and throughout our entire meal. A value for the price, we will be returning without a doubt.

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

Had a wonderful birthday lunch with outstanding food and exceptional service from Adriana. Have been to this Capital Grille several times and it has been consistently excellent. The location is convenient to theater and midtown activities and I highly recommend making a visit.

We had a wonderful dinner at Capital. We always enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and delicious steaks, particularly the Kona Crusted NY Strip. Our server, Edgar was very personable and attentive, and made our experience truly enjoyable. We will definitely be back soon.

The food was delicious and well presented. The waiter continuously got our order wrong. Given the cost of the meal, it is important there is attention to detail. As a consequence, he left the food that we did not order on the table. Not only did we not like that food, the waste associated with a wrong order from a sustainability point of view was troubling.

As usual, the service was attentive and warm. The food (spicy calamari, ribeye, filet mignon, au gratin potatoes) were perfectly cooked, so delicious. The coconut cream pie was a wonderfully surprisingly salty-sweet finish. Highly, highly recommended : )

We went to the Capital Grille for my birthday on Thursday, September 19 and had a great time. Rikki was our waiter and he was fantastic. My martinis were perfectly dry which is the way I like them. I had a Caesar salad to start, the lamb double cut rib chops (3), and a special desert provided by the staff along with Champagne. It was a wonderful time and a great way to finish my day. I highly recommend the Capital Grille for any special occasion or for any time you want a great dining experience.

We love the Capital Grille. It is our go to restaurant. Always delicious, always a welcoming greeting. Had the pre-theater menu which is a great value. They have onion straws (not on the menu) that are great. Need to know to ask for them. Wine list has gotten more expensive than it used to be, but still some realistically priced bottles.

Sadly one of our dishes had to be sent back. Also disappointed with the 'by the glass selection" for one of the guests: no sweet (Muscato or late harvest Riesling) by the glass, told must buy bottle).

This is certainly a great destination for a special occasion as the food and service were wonderful. The bar man advised us just to have a side between us and he was quite right, the portions were large. The table had been dressed with a card as it was our 30th wedding anniversary.

Capital Grille never disappoints me when it comes to the perfect way to celebrate a birthday, with delicious food and drink. In addition, my favorite server, Ed Sullivan, treated me like a celebrity which made me feel so special.
