    Not the best experience, not the worst. The food we definitely below the usual standard of The Capital Grill. Steak was over cooked, the side of mushrooms had a lot of dirt in them. Wedge salad included brown leaves. Service was good overall. For price though, I did expect more.

    The manager there is so rude & the also the waiters , we arrived in time for dinner however our friends was running 2 mins behind , they really did not let them come in to have dinner with us , she had no care in the world , no understanding, and very rushing when it came to ordering telling us we have 10/15 mins to order and “there’s nothing he can do after that “ I just didn’t feel welcomed at all I felt profiled I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone ! We didn’t even stay for dinner we actually got up and left and ate elsewhere ! 0/10 I do not recommend

    We were celebrating a 60th Birthday. They made it so special by decorating the table with confetti, leaving a personal birthday greeting and adding a special dessert! Really personal service. As for the food - delicious / the steak was so tender and cooked perfectly and the lobster Mac and cheese was to die for. Overall a great experience and a great place for the milestone celebration

    Place was nice . But they had us waiting an hour to set us, even when we showed up on time . They’re were seating people that arrived late first (what?!). After that, our server barely went to our table to make sure we were ok. Food arrived late, cold, and they forgot one of our companions meal. When we wanted to pay and leave , they wouldn’t bring us the check. We had to chase one of the severs. For the price of the place, this was a lame experience .

    This was my first time visiting this capital grille and I love the location of it. First off the ambiance is very beautiful and captivating. Upon arrival, we were greeted and seated down. Staff was very professional and friendly. They also have us great recommendations. Food was great. I had the New York Strip and it was so good. I had the cheesesteak afterwards and it was absolutely delicious. I would visit capital grille again and again. I love steak. Is a guilty pleasure of mine so I love going and trying different fine dining steakhouses. I definitely recommend this place.

    My husband, two daughters and I enjoyed a lunch at The Capital Grille before seeing a Broadway show. We were seated immediately and water and bread appeared within seconds. Our waiter was attentive and informed, but not intrusive. My husband and one daughter ordered the filet with mashed potatoes, while my other daughter and I ordered the Cobb salad with filet. Both meals were perfectly prepared and delicious. They were served quickly. The steak was cooked to perfect and seasoned well. The Capital Grille is nicely appointed with ample space and large, clean restrooms. We really enjoyed our lunch here and would definitely book again when we come to the city to enjoy a show or shopping. We live about an hour from NYC, so we have experienced a lot of different restaurants, and this is on the top of our list. Highly recommend.

    Excellent! We just had Christmas dinner at Del Friscos in Boston, and it pales in comparison to the Capital Grille. Excellent food and superior service. A wonderful meal before heading to a show. Lyssandra and Mohammed made it even better with their witty banter and kindness. We will be back for family meals and with clients.

    Excellent service, food and ambiance. Mixed drinks were on the weak side. The house special Pineapple martini tasted like pineapple juice. I had to order a straight up vodka martini to taste any vodka and feel a buzz and I rarely drink. Wine list was nice and reasonably priced. Our table of 4 had a Filet, a Tomahawk, and my husband and I shared the Porterhouse steak and all was excellent. We had plenty of leftovers as the portions are huge. We enjoyed the Brussels sprouts and lobster Mac and cheese for sides. Can’t wait to go back to Capital Grill!
