We're regulars at the Capital Grille when we visit the States and, as always, the food was good. However, even on a Monday evening the restaurant was extremely busy and we just get the feeling that this is a bit of a factory restaurant, churning out decent meals but it's becoming less of an experience as staff don't seem to...

Went for a steak on Wednesday in New York. Got a table for 4 straight away. I had an excellent filet mignon. Very good service.

The Capital Grille is my favorite steakhouse by far. The meals are always consistent and excellent. I have never had an issue here like I have had with other establishments. For the money, I don't think the Kona Ribeye can be beaten. I will definitely go back and I will definitely recommend to others.

Lovely edition of the reliable steak house brand "The Capital Grille". Reasonably priced and well stocked wine cellar and bar. Kona rubbed sirloin and Chilean Sea Bass, both delicious. Thanks to Jeremy, Robert and Steven for getting our evening off to a great start!

I went with a friend for lunch - we go to a different restaurant each time we dine. This place has a wonderful atmosphere like a men's club, and the service was top-notch. We went during NYC Restaurant Week, but I enjoyed this place so much that I will return again soon.

Best steak I have ever tasted, great wine selection, spetacular service. Pre-theater menu is a great deal. The only issue I have is that now I have hard time going to other steak restaurants...
