The Capital Grille, New York Chrysler Center

This is an excellent restaurant where one gets an excellent filet for a considerable price. The portions are too generous as so often in the US, but the ambience is very pleasant, reasonably quiet and service courteous. We enjoyed our dinner there.

The food was cooked to perfection. I had the Delmonico steak which was absolutely superb. My husband had the surf and turf. Both of us felt that the steaks were cooked as we requested. Great ambiance and good food paired with an attentive staff was exactly what we received. Being Valentine's Day, I thought that it would be extremely crowded... More

Unchanging and completely unpretentious. Two solid things we look for in a week-night night dining choice. Steaks and lamb consistent, desserts are divine. Drinks are made well, staff friendly and knowledgeable. Can't go wrong here. Well done!

As a frequent business diner to this Capital Grill, ( usually every couple of months) the food and service were always good, last dined here in November 2014. This place is good for lunch or dinner, always busy and crowded with level of noise that it makes difficult for conversations, so perfect for diving into juicy steaks, burgers and all... More

The filet was excellent, as were the mashed potatoes. There is a lovely assortment of bread, and the grapefruit cocktail was delicious. Our waitress Kelly was very attentive. She provided truly exceptional service.

We went here on a recommendation from someone who has eaten here regularly. We went for a friends birthday whilst in NY for a few days. The restaurant was busy and had a real buzz to it but not so noisy it made it difficult to talk at your table. The staff could not have been more helpful with our... More

Save your day's calories for an outstanding meal here. It's hard to find anything on the menu for under 400 calories (some of the meals and even the lobster mac & cheese side are in the 1200-1500 range!), and by the time you add an appetizer and some sides, you'll likely exceed a day's recommended intake. But everything is delicious,... More

Still sitting at my table, what an absolutely wonderful experience. The staff are excellent, the food amazing, the special recommendation of the fillet on the bone sublime. Everything about this venue seems to be outstanding I have nothing negative to say. I would definitely return possibly tomorrow.

Organized a business dinner here. The seating for our group was a bit of a problem so we had to wait a bit, but to compensate for the long wait we got a complimentary drink and meal course. The food selection was really good and everybody enjoyed a good dinner with a nice wine.
