Although we dine at this particular Capital Grille whenever it's convenient (it's one of our family's favorite restaurants), this time we were celebrating a major birthday, which I noted when I made the reservation. We were delighted to find birthday decorations and a birthday card on our table, and, at dessert time, a lovely birthday plate containing an assortment of delicious desserts presented to the celebrant. We appreciated so very much the extra attention by the restaurant to make this occasion special. As always, the food was excellent, the service warm and attentive (but not over-bearing) and the pre-theatre special menu offered by this particular location is an extraordinary value. Thank you, Capital Grille-NY Time Life Building.
The food was great and the service was wonderful.
Next time I go I plan on bringing the whole family.
The food was excellent. The steaks and seafood was cooked perfectly. The ambiance was old world class and wonderful. The staff was attentive and accommodating with recommendations on both the food and wine. We will certainly go back.
Edgar was very professional and service was outstanding.
Great service and food. My guests were very impressed. The Hall Napa Cab was an excellent wine at a reasonable price. 91 or 92 point wine for $100. Next time I am in New York City, it is a definite go back.
Great food, great staff, great experience!!!
This was the first time I went to the Capital Grille in NYC. I have been to the one in Paramus,NJ and they both have excellent service and great food. Would highly recommend.
We had Jose who did a terrific job with us. Explained menu items , made recommendations, was courteous , prompt and attentive. We were seeing a show afterwards and Jose made sure we received our food in time however did not rush us.
All the little extras like birthday cheesecake , glitter on the table made it a great time as usual. The Capital Grille is our go to restaurant we we come into the city , and we have recommended it for many other people.
I had an amazing time Saturday night. Bonnie my waitress was absolutely amazing. She was the best waitress I’ve had. Maria the manager was also awesome. Front of the house staff all great. I normally go to the Capital Grille on 42nd Street but after Saturday this one will be a mainstay for me. Thank you all for an amazing evening
Pre-theater dinner menu a great deal with nice choices
Perfect pre-theater dinner. We wanted a comfortable and intimate dinner with great food and drink star to finish. Very attentive service.
Just two rich kids wanting some good steak. Waiter tried to dupe is by trying to order us a dozen oysters when we wanted to order 6. Kinda got rushed but the food was really good I’ve had better but I’d give it an 8/10
We attended the Introduction to the Generous Pour, which was a lot of fun. We then had dinner in the bar area. Our server, Rickey, went above and beyond in taking care of us and making sure of our every comfort. We had an excellent time!
Great as usual
Great service and excellent food. Pricey but a great experience.
We were 8 people dining together, and left very disappointed. The steaks were simply not good as what you expect when paying $60 for it. Will not come back.
Loved everything from the service to the incredible meal. Thanks
Great service overall and the food was amazing
Had a personal visit from manager, she really cared and wanted to know about our experience. We keep coming back for the service, the food and the ambiance.
Great food - great service - always exceeds expectation
We came for the great food and allure that preceded The Capital Grille, what we got was and is what I would assume a true Michelin restaurant would be. Service and staff are beyond words to describe. Appetizers were incredible, salads fresh and crisp, steaks tender and full of flavor just like the sides, and the deserts?? Stuttering good. We came to celebrate my daughters graduation from 8th grade, we left commenting about our waitress (True Class Trough and Through)! There are many great steak houses in the city, we’ve been to most, something about this one and I can’t say what exactly, was extraordinary!
Love this place for business lunch as it is formal but not noisy and tables are not so close to each other. Food is always good. Today we tried the coconut cream pie. It is out of the world! Best coconut cream pie I have ever had.
I am from Dallas and have been to Capitol grill in several cities. This is the worse service I have recievedm. I had to wait a while before my waiter came over. I sat with an empty drink several times and seemed to always be an afterthought to our waitress.
Lobster roll difficult to eat and with little taste
The food was absolutely delicious! The service was outstanding. Our anniversary celebration was amazing.
It’s always nice to dine where the restaurant is engaged and empowered to provide the very best food and service. Your absolute enjoyment is their highest priority.
Food and service was excellent
We tried pre-theatre menu.
Good value and food!
Always a good setting for good conversation, with excellent service and good food.
From pre-dinner drinks at the bar, to great food and service, to the complimentary birthday desserts, it was a great evening for our group of five people. Thanks very much!
My guest and I had a great time last night. We had the New York Strip Steak and the Swordfish with King Crab topping, the Brussel Sprouts with Soy Sauce and Mashed Potatoes as sides and everything was delicious. But the Brussel Sprouts stood out as amazing. Thanks to Angela and her partner, whose name I didn't get (my apologies) for their cheerful and excellent attention to us. We will be back.
I ate with clients and they loved the quality of the food.
The pre-theater menu is the best value in Midtown. Dinner was great in every way.
Wonderful steak and spinach. Bread basket is fabulous! Delicious creme brûlée. Excellent pre theater menu. Terrific service. Try the infused vodka - the stoli doli
Outstanding service and food, our server Jeffrey was professional, courteous, extremely efficient.
Fantastic service and the food was amazing. I highly recommend and will be back again.
Always lovely to dine in a Capital Grille, but this establishment is particularly excellent. Everything was perfect, the service and the food could not have been better and we could not have had a better time. Thank you, Capital Grille! We’ll be back!
Steak was good but probably not worth $60 but service was dissapointing. Our server, Jason had a tendency to dissapear for long periods of time. Waited 10-15 mins for a desert menu and another for him to come back - we decided to pass on desert at that point
Amazing restaurant! Was our first time and New York and will definitely be coming back here on our next visit. Sarah was so helpful and made sure we enjoyed our time.
Service for one, especially a woman dining alone, can sometimes be slow and inattentive. Not so The Capitol Grille on Saturday night. Pleased with service, the taste and temperature of the filet, the wine.
Construction on the street requires a temporary sidewalk that obscures the front of the restaurant so it's not so easy to find right now but worth the effort.
