This location of Capital Grille provides the same fantastic service with great food in a nice locale. The menu is close to other restaurants from this chain, but wine selection does change. They maintain their quality and is a great option for dining if y are close to Chrysler building.

Had a great business lunch here. The food is delicious and consistent. It is nice in that you don't have to be concerned about how long you are going to be sitting around for your food; it will be prepared consistently, in a timely manner, just enough to have a good business lunch without overextending the time you sit and...

Hosted a client dinner here. The prix fix menu was $75 a head which included appetizers, salads, and a choice of mains and desserts. Great value for money, table facing the street with great sun light. The service was beyond outstanding, with a great wine selection. The food was solid, but nothing left back a taste saying this is so... More

We decided to go for an early dinner on our first night in New York & found this gem as we were staying nearby. The service was great (Pete was our waiter) and the food was wonderful! I had the crab & lobster cakes to start and my husband had the tomato & mozzarella salad, both were really tasty. For... More

The atmosphere at this location is great, and the staff are very attentive. I enjoy coming here on occasion for special dinners, as I could not eat like this often! This place is about the food, so then you come here, be hungry and don't be afraid to eat. I find the steaks to be delicious and have never been... More

This was our 3 rd visit to Capital Grille - New York after 3 previous visits to the Las Vegas venue. Atmosphere was great & waiting staff were very attentive and knowledgeable. Food was stunning. We had the calamari to share and the porterhouse steak cooked to medium plus ( advised by our waiter) was amazing. We also had the... More

This has to be the best steak I've ever had in NYC!! Everything was cooked to perfection and the sides were very complimentary. I was in a party of 6 for restaurant week. The waiters and waitresses were very nice. We ordered a white wine that wasn't chilled so they gave us a free open bottle that was cold while... More

I met a friend for lunch here when I was in town for a couple of days. Very cool space, like an old school Men's club. We sat in the Trylons room, loved all the windows and light. I had the oysters to start and then the parmesan crusted sole with crab and asparagus in a hollandaise sauce. Everything was... More

Great meal at the Capital Grille. I've been to the one in Boston a few times and it's always been excellent, this didn't disappoint. We had fillet steaks and shared a Mac & cheese (no lobster) and a nice bottle of wine. The service was excellent. We got a great table by the window. Hostesses were also lovely.

It was another restaurant week lunch with friends at this elegant New York City restaurant. The hostess was welcoming and polite, we were seated almost immediately thanks to our reservation and timely arrival. The food was delicious, the California pinot noir was perfect at the right temperature. The service was impeccable. We all agreed it was a memorable experience.
