i did not have a good experience at this resturant. the service was terrible. Everything took so long to arrive. i waited 15min for a drink only to be told its on its way and waited another 10min. My steak was over cooked and my wife steak was under cooked. The lobster mac and cheese only had 2 pieces of lobster in it. The only positive thing i can say is they did give us to free glass of champange since we was celebrating a bday and gave us a frew slice of cheese cake.. i definitely will not be returning to this resturant.

From the moment we walked in we were greeted with friendliness and warmth. The bartender was friendly, our table was thoughtfully decorated with a personal card congratulating us on the occasion of our anniversary celebration soon followed by a champagne toast, compliments from the bartender we sat with earlier. The server was friendly, helpful and created an atmosphere absent of obnoxious pretentiousness as many steak houses in Manhattan tend to be. Our complimentary "Happy Anniversary" dessert plate was the perfect ending to a lovely evening. Thank you for making our Anniversary dinner so special.

Rib-eye is better than the porterhouse , but the porterhouse at Gallagher’s is still the best !!!

Our 2nd time to Capital Grill; first time in Garden City, Long Island. I give that location a slightly higher review than the 51st St. NYC location. Seated in one of the quiet rooms rather than the main salon on Valentine's evening, it was quiet & we could hear ourselves talk. I prefer the main dining area to feel connected but is good to know you offer quiet dining areas. Our sirloin steaks were cooked as requested & we enjoyed the truffle fries. The spinach w/garlic & oil was a bit too oily & hardly had a garlic taste. The same dish in Garden City was scrumptious with large chunks of garlic in it & less oil. Waitress was just attentive enough. All in all a good dining experience & city location a plus.

We booked a reservation for Valentine's Day via Open Table and were seated fairly quickly. Our table was upstairs in a small alcove where we were seated at a four top that could only seat 2 - very awkwardly located. Service was friendly but a bit slow. My tea sat empty for a good portion of the meal. The waiter clearing my salad noticed that I hadn't eaten it and inquired about whether or not I enjoyed it (I didn't, because of a bad piece of citrus) and kindly removed it from our bill. My husband enjoyed his salad and steak. The au gratin potatoes were tasty. I ordered the tenderloin and lobster tails - cooked to order and nicely flavored. Overall it was an okay meal, but the experience didn't match the bill. $$
