 (New York Area)·Dined 3 days ago

It was a comedy of errors. First they put the wrong cut of meat on my plate. My wife had my cut and I had hers, both at the wrong temperature. I would have just swapped with her, however she got surf and turf and i'm allergic to shellfish. Then half way through the meal the roof starts leaking. It was dripping down on to our table, down the back of my suit, and all over the food. I brought it up to the waiter and since we were already seated, they didn't want to move us and dirty another table. They just said sorry. It was absolutely horrendous. I am a very easy going person, all that would have been necessary was to fix the meat mistake and move our table. No harm no foul. I was livid leaving. A nearly $300 meal that was worse then a trip to longhorn. The only gesture they made was to give A complementary piece of cake. Thanks...

Tonights service was phenomenal. The host Mark was AMAZING! When you go out for dinner the service begans with the experience you have with the Staff. Each time we come to Capital, Mark provides the ultimate experience setting the bar for all the Staff you come in contact with. Not only did I have good company, food and drinks but Mark gave us exceptional service.

Reserved a table here for Valentine's night during a quick trip to NYC. After some confusion at the host/check in, we were seated in a small dining room in the back which was ideal due to the level of business (the main dining room would've had much more noise and traffic with couples celebrating Valentine's Day). We were immediately greeted by our servers Christian and James (I hope I got their names right) who were nothing short of exceptional all evening long. For someone who'd spent 15 years working for private/country clubs and other fine dining options in my youth, I was very impressed with their timing and attention to detail.
We started with shrimp cocktails which to our surprise consisted of five large prawns each which could not have been more flavorful. Next the salad course with one wedge salad and one caesar, again so much fresh flavor and generous portions. For the entree course, we both selected the bone in filet and added a fresh lobster tail to each plate. Plate presentation was traditional with drawn butter and lemon but it was the delicious aroma of the cooked filet that invited us to "dig in". Everything was cooked to perfection, exactly as ordered and every bite as good if not better than the last. We'd added side orders of asparagus and mashed potatoes to compliment our filets, both of which again prepared, seasoned and cooked to perfection.
You'd think the three courses we'd enjoyed would've more than satisfied our appetite but when presented with the dessert menu, I eyed the creme brulee which I never turn down as I'm always in search of the perfect one. It was wonderful with amazing flavor and texture, my only disappointment is that it had been prepared earlier in the day. In my quest, I've noticed most every restaurant does so, instead of carmelizing the sugary top just before service. Maybe it's more of a preference for me, it was still a tasty treat to end our absolutely perfect evening and amazing dining experience!

This restaurant is my go to place when I take clients out. It always impresses, and provides outstanding steaks & impressive service. I have never had a bad meal here, nor a bad experience (well...except the bill, if you're not watching how many "high-end" glasses of wine you're drinking!

We went to The Capital Grill for NYC Restaurant week, and the service has been outstanding even if we were going to pay just $42 (which is a lot less than the average there). The meat is its best offer and the view from the glass pyramid is great. Recommended.

I've dined several times at Capital Grill, hence I was confident in taking my mom there. Oh my goodness, the food was horrible. The beans were not cooked at all. Forget about aldente, they were raw. The salmon was so blan, couldn't even taste salt. Maybe it's because we went there during restaurant week. I wish I could get my money back. I would never go back or recommended it to anyone

Came to The Capital Grille to celebrate my wife's birthday during NYC Restaurant Week and was pleasantly surprised that management had reserved a corner table w/ views of 42nd St and decorated the table w/ confetti and rose petals. There was even a small card wishing her a happy birthday from the restaurant.

As always, the steaks were delicious and the service was impeccable, but these small gestures set the tone for an amazing evening for my wife and I can't thank you enough.

I have been to this location several times and enjoy it very much. This time I was there for a business lunch. The only criticism I have is that the service was rushed. I felt a bit pushed to finish up and leave even though the check was well over $400.00. Also, the timing was off. One of the side dishes arrived while we were in the middle of eating our appetizers. It just sat there for about 15 mins. until the entrees came along with the other sides. The waiter should have caught onto that and brought a fresh side.

The steaks were excellent, as usual, especially the filet mignon which we all had. My steak was slightly overcooked, but not so much so to complain. The crab cake appetizer was also delicious. We had the Coconut Cream Pie and Creme Brulee for dessert which were both excellent.

Great food, and wonderful restaurant week menu. Only thing is when we sat down, the waitress didn't give us the restaurant menu and seemed a bit annoyed (though she tried to hide it) when I asked for it. An embarrassing moment, and something I hope in the future won't happen. We eat out a lot, and when we do restaurant week, want the menu as we sit. But, the steak was perfectly prepared and everything was tasty. The creme brulee however was cold and had that pre-prepared taste

The wine was great! I emailed it to myself but the email never came through. Bummer! My steak was switched with my husband's steak or possibly overcooked but everything was amazing! That didn't affect my meal at all! The taste, the service, everything from the moment we sat down was wonderful! I will be back for sure!

Service was slow to begin, but the waiter was good when attentive.
The steaks are good, but not melt in the mouth soft, which they should be at medium rare.
Sides were good as were steak sauces -- the cabernet reduction sauce was excellent.

Went to the location at 155 East 42nd Street for restaurant week. Two comments: 1. The serving size of citrus seared salmon was way too small but delicious!!!!!! 2. The greeters at the front desk should practice on smiling and being a little more friendly, they are anti-social to say the least and it sets a bad tone for such a beautiful restaurant. Fortunately, our waiter Michael made it worth while.

I loved the food but unfortunately our server wasn’t very accommodating for us and we even tip her generously ! She wasn’t attentive at all and she was so rude and didn’t even ask if I had finished my chocolate cake and took the cake away ! Then they stop serving water to hint to us basically to hurry and leave ... bottom line was the service was terrible and rude. We felt disrespected actually ..
