I was here with a large group of people during the holiday season and they were able to accommodate us even with the last minute guest addition. The food was very good. The staff were very courteous & very helpful with their food & drink reccommendations. The wine list is superb as well as the choices of steak.

From beginning to end, this was as good a dinner experience as you can imagine. Start with a smiling welcome at the door, bartenders who are expert in their knowledge of wines and ensure you select the right one for you. Add an attentive and friendly wait staff and expertly prepared food, and you are in for a memorable meal.... More

After all the years of dining out, I still find the Capital Grille restaurants the best at serving steak. The restaurant in spite of our visit being on New Year's eve, for all the craziness that goes with the day, still did itself proud. They honored our request for a round table for our party of eight and also honored... More

Everything about Capital Grille is top-notch. We went for a late lunch, so the prices are more reasonable. Definitely make a reservation because this place is popular and crowded. A lot of locals were dining. We ordered a steak which was cooked to perfection, a salad with grilled shrimp and a variety of delicious appetizers. We also had a glass... More

This location is right around the corner from my office, so I eat here regularly. The service is almost always fantastic and the food is very good. On my first visit, I was very pleased because I was the only one at our table who was wearing black pants (the others were wearing white/cream) and the server gave me a... More

This is a wonderful spot for a business lunch. Food is wonderful and the service is impeccable. Highly recommend the lobster bisque, the salads, Chilean sea bass and the burger. All good choices. located just up the street from Grand Central station. A real find in this touristy neighborhood.
