Shaphire our waitress was amazing. I love your restaurants. We have been to ones in Atlanta, Denver, Indianapolis, Costa Mesa, Minneapolis and now NYC. Love the consistency of quality food and service. Thank you!

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).

Reservation system needs improving. They call your cell phone and ask you to confirm. The call back number is not in service.

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.

One of the most pleasant dining experience I've had in a very long time. The service was impeccable--Angela was friendly without being overbearing, helpful without being pushy. The food was exceptional--what I've come to expect from Capital Grille, no matter what location.

A huge disappointment, extremely mediocre food. Horrible, rude, and condescending service from waiter. The night just went from bad to worse. Paid for a wine tasting and didn't even get to taste half of the wines listed. Our food was placed on the floor by the waiter. The manager apologized, but the staff is atrocious! Too bad because I have supported this restaurant for many years; no more!

We went for a "light" dinner- we had their burgers. They are terrific. We usually have the pre-theater special menu but didn't want to eat so much before a show. Burger was delicious, prepared perfectly and was more filling than I needed!
We always love the Capital Grill. This was a bit different for us and enjoyed it very much.

We have had wonderful meals at the Cap Grill in Washington, DC. The NYC was disappointing all around because:
1) Tree nut allergy not handled well. Instead of a chef coming over as requested, the general manager came over to show results for a tree nut allergy on her phone to verify. Chef never came & our son would not eat. (understandably!)
2) my scallop dinner was sub-par all around - not what I would expect at a high end establishment. also, my daughters salmon was served with onions under it, which was not in the description
3) my husband's red wine was served in a glass with a very narrow mouth and came out a long time after mine
The meal and experience was an expensive disappointment.

We had a great experience mostly due to our waiter, Rikki, who provided special attention to a member of our group who is lactose intolerant and cannot have any dairy products in any of his food. Rikki provided suggestions and ensured that no dairy was in the items ordered for him. Excellent service was provided by all the staff. Food was excellent as always. We look forward to returning soon.

A real Classic NY steakhouse, the setting is very pleasant, elegant and quiet. The meal was spectacular, in particular the lamb and the bone-in filet. Service was great although a little too pricy. I would recommend for a special occasion.

Our lunch was pleasant and well prepared, no complaints about the food or preparation. We particularly liked, however, the fact that the calorie content was presented on the menu for each item, including cocktails and desserts.
