If you want THE Capital Grille experience, then the only place to go in my mind is on 42nd St in the Chrysler building. I have yet to have a meal that was one iota different than the one before it - perfectly prepared, delectable food, excellent service, and a unique atmosphere and setting. If you want to avoid a...

When we're in the mood for steak, the Capital Grill has always been our first choice. We've eaten at the other popular steak houses, but come back to the Capital Grill. Great staff and delicious meal.

Steak was great. Service was very good. The interesting visual effects of the glass pyramid was great.

Went there for dinner expecting a first rate meal AND GOT IT!! The service was excellent. The fish and surroundings on the plate were perfect. I highly recommend a meal there if you are looking for standards, style and service over seeking gratuities from false attention. GREAT.

This was recommended to us by a local bartender and we were not disappointed. We were a little reluctant at first as we knew it was a chain however, we had no reason to be. Despite a packed restaurant, we were given a table in a great spot overlooking the Chrysler building. The restaurant felt anything but like a chain... More

I have now been to the grille at least 4 or 5 times for lunch/dinner meetings. The ambiance feels of old men in suits holding highball glasses and wearing spectacles. But my quip isn't with the atmosphere as this is quite individual and many people like this ambiance. My issue has been that every single time that eat there, my... More

Went with a couple of colleagues, restaurant was not busy but not welcomed with enthusiasm. Throughout the meal the service was professional but not friendly, neither server smiled. The sirloin steak I ordered was excellent and the wild mushrooms flavourful, but the signature fries with Parmesan were hardly edible. Go back probably not.

This is without doubt my favourite restaurant in New York. Everything about it is great. The food.... The service.... The ambience.... It simply cannot be faulted. Go there with an empty stomach though, as the portions are massive. This is also a rare restaurant in New York as the service charge is included in the headline menu price.

Highly suggest reservations in the glassed room which faces 42nd street especially beautiful in the winter when it is snowing. The bar is just off the main entranceway/coatroom/reservation area and a great place to relax while waiting for your friends to arrive. The staff is the best and the managing partner, Jill Dickstein, runs this professional operation to make sure... More
