Fair but great service

Must admit we were not blown away by the steak or the soups this time. We love Capital Grilles but this one in Manhattan was only ok. Our waiter though was outstanding. His name was Alphonso. Great job by him but totally ordinary food. Surprised!

Recently had a business lunch at the Capital Grille. The seating in the atrium was really enjoyable with a bright and airy atmosphere. The rest of the restaurant looks a little dark and stuffy. The food was very good, although the portions are tiny. Lunch prices were at the upper end of what you would expect for midtown New York.... More

This cap grille is probably my favorite spot in nyc. The restaurant it self is in one of the unique buildings in nyc and the food is always spot on.

This will be one of our go to restaurants in NYC. The food is superlative. The staff is welcoming and attentive from reception to service to a trip to the bar after. We were given different table options. Our server, Parris, was the best we have had anywhere in the world. She knows the menu like a chef would. She... More

Great restaurant specialising in Steak nearby Grand Central. The NY Strip steak was spectacular as was the clam chowder. Fries with truffle also a big hit along with the creamed spinach. The atmosphere and decor was excellent also.

Loved the service from the server, loved the food, and the surroundings. I wasn't expecting it to be family friendly, but it was. There was a stroller next to us, other little kids on the other table. and all still very quiet and enjoyable. Open and excellent for everyone.

Bustling at lunchtime, we were given a particularly loud table near the open kitchen. The attentive service made up for this quickly but I would not recommend the sitting there again. Lunch entree salads are my go to at this restaurant and they permitted protein switches to accomodate my shellfish allergy which was helpful. My salmon was fabulous as was... More

Our group of 9 had dinner here in early June. Gorgeous restaurant. Great menu. Be warned - the appetisers are HUGE - enough to share between two or three people! The steaks are cooked to perfection. Great wine list too. Would be happy to return!

My girlfriend took me here for my 30th birthday as we were in New York celebrating. A really nice setting, especially if you get a table under the glass vaulted ceiling you can see the top of the Chrysler building all lit up many floors above you as the restaurant is nestled right next to the building.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
