    Wifey and I were celebrating her birthday and started the festivities at the bar with drinks and appetizers, the bartenders were amazing...special shout out to Luis, amazing cocktails and excellent service. Dinner was amazing and they made sure that my wife was happy giving us complimentary miniature cocktails and dessert...so awesome! We’ll definitely continue our celebrations at this location.

    So let me tell you what happen. There is a curb as you cross the street to come back and make a uturn to valet parking. I hit that curb and blew out a brand new tire. The young man at the valet station came over and ask if I had a spare. I said yes. He said sir go and enjoy your dinner and I will take care of it. This happen on November 19th. 2022 I did not get the young man's name. Our reservations were for 7:30 and it was our 25 wedding anniversary. I hope this young man can be recognized in some way. This is the type of employee that can go far in your organization and any organization. He understands what taking care of the customer really means. His customer service and understanding was extraordinary. Dinner and service was excellent as always but my wife and I could not stop talking about the kindness this young man showed. Thank you Frank G

    The Capital Grille was an amazing restaurant. Jordan was our server, and he was the sweetest person and really made sure we were taken care of. It was our five year anniversary, they decorated the table, gave us a handwritten card, and a free dessert! 10/10 would recommend.

    The food was spectacular and the service was amazing - especially Mo Fofana who took care of us. We had the filet, and it was some of the most tender beef I can ever remember having. I had a passion fruit mojito and it was fantastic. The atmosphere was beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal there.

    Best NY strip I’ve had in a long time, cooked to perfection. My wife, who orders salmon no matter where we go, said it was the best she’s had in quite a while. Little pricey but expected. Dining area very quiet, no dishes being thrown around, our server was professional and very personable.

    Took my mom in a wheelchair for a birthday celebration dinner before a show at the Infinity Music Hall next door. Prompt, courteous service- greeted and door opened. Subdued lighting with small lamps at each table with a card wishing Happy Birthday. Reuben Shah was our server- seasoned and professional. Given a Complimentary Stoli drink- soaked in pineapple for 10 days- delicious. Started with a bowl of lobster bisque and lobster and crab cakes- delicious and plenty of crab and lobster. Main courses of Sea Bass with asparagus and wild mushrooms and Lobster Mac and cheese were awesome- perfectly cooked tender and flavorful Sea Bass, and plentiful serving of lobster Mac served heaping in a small skillet. Ended with an order of coffee, and Reuben surprised us with a complimentary Happy Birthday tray with a ramekin size of cheesecake and chocolate mousse presented nicely with raspberry garnish and fresh whipped cream. Overall, deserving of another 5 star rating. Thank you for a great dining experience

    It was our second anniversary and we celebrated our first anniversary last year on Friday, October 15, 2021. But I have to say this meal was the most amazing meal I’ve had yet. Every meal that I’ve ever eaten there has been phenomenal. But this time, I can’t say enough about it. I had the bone in fillet mignon with the South African lobster tail. We will be back next year on Sunday, October 15, 2023 for sure.

    Our experience was 10s all the way through. My wife and I was celebrating our anniversary and from the moment we arrived our table was beautiful with rose petals laid out nicely ,our waiter MO Fofana will always be remembered for making our night special with on the spot recommendations, and full knowledge to detail of wine and food making our selection sound worth the wait and trust me it was, the atmosphere was everything we could have wanted plus more . MO Fofana was attentive and put smiles on our faces by being a top class professional, honestly just amazing. Please try this place if you haven't and if you have then I expect you to return as I will .

    The food was delicious and the service was very friendly. We went for my husband’s birthday and I had selected that reason when I made our OpenTable reservation. The restaurant put a small amount of confetti on the table and gave him a hand written birthday card. It was very sweet. Highly recommend!
