My go-to restaurant for a place with excellent food, thoughtful and non-intrusive (but very attentive) service and where you can hear everyone around the table or booth speaking and they can hear you, no straining necessary. GREAT for business lunches.

Love the bar area surrounded by the wine lockers. Gabe the bartender was able to handle the crush very professionally. Dinner was delicious and our wait staff made sure we got out in time for our show without our feeling rushed.

We recently visited the Capital Grille in the Time Life building and had a great experience. Not only was every aspect of the cuisine exceptional we had a terrific waiter. George Ramirez was just great!!! He was attentive and catered to our every need. I would return just to be served by him again. A true ambassador for this establishment.

Delicious meal on New Years Eve! Had made a reservation for 10pm, was seated right away and accommodated very quickly. Food was truly impeccable. Service was as well. Went for NYE and one year anniversary and was given champagne to celebrate! A great night overall!

Some waiter was constantly coming and asking if had finished our meal even though there was food in our plates. We felt as if they rushed us to finish our dinner.

Some waiters appear not to know the table etiquette insisting on cleaning out plates when the cutlery was placed in way indicating a pause rather than the end of the meal. No butter knives.

Despite the aforesaid small comments, it was still a great experience. Food is good. Recommend.

While we were having dinner, everything went perfect as it always happens at Capital Grille.

This was our first trip t Capital Grille, but it will not be the last. We ordered Tuna Tartar and Fried Calamari as well as, the beet salad that had the creamiest goat cheese I had ever tasted for appetizers and they were all delicious . Our main course consisted of steak and sides. The steaks were all cooked to perfection. The roasted brussel sprouts and creamed spinach were outstanding , however, the lobster mac & cheese was a bit too dry. The dessert was on another level, I highly recommend the apple crostata.

Service was excellent by Angela in the midtown location and so was the food. It is expensive so this is not an every weekend experience for us. Would highly recommend for a fancy date night or special occasion. I had a filet with mushrooms/onions and fig jam and the mushrooms were to die for! We also had the crab cakes to start and mashed potatoes and creamed spinach to share. The sides are large and so were the pieces of meat.
Would definitely return.

It was our 50th anniversary and the restaurant did a marvelous job. A table decorated with stars, a glass of champagne to start and a desert plate for the two of us, both as a gift. The service was excellent and the recommended wine excellent.

Outstanding service and great food. I found this gem by chance and the service at this Midtown location is impeccable. I like it best when we have celebrations and special occasions as they always manage to decorate the table and offer complimentary cocktails/desert.

Over priced. Average quality meet. Over cooked lobster. Waiter turned wine bottle upside down to prove he’d corked it only to have the wine spill over the table. Not great and not worth it.

It was my first and last time dining at this restaurant. We were very disappointed with the food and the service.The servers was very nice but not very attentive . It took a long time for our food to come out and 2 of the 3 dishes came out cold.We had to get another server to help us being that our server did not come back and ask us how our our meal was.They needed to remake our dishes while the other person had to eat his food while we waited . We did not have time for coffee being we had a show to catch. We did say that at the begging of our meal and we gave ourselves more than enough time for our meal. I think for the price that they charge this should not happen.
