The food was amazing. My date had the lobster Mac and cheese while I had the ny strip concerned in bleu cheese. It was awesome. Amazing wine selection as well, will definitely be back!

Whenever I'm visiting NY, the dinner at the Capital Grille is a must. The place is elegant, great service and the food is excellent. This time, I had the fillet mignon with asparagus and it was delicious as usual. Prices are relatively average for such an upscale restaurant. Won't miss the place in my next business visits to NY.

I absolutely loved eating at this restaurant. I found the review by other Trip Advisor patrons online and they knew what they were talking about. This was one of the best rastaurants I have eaten at in a long time. The service by Carleton and the food could not have been better. Maria, the Manager, made it a point to... More

My wife and I have been to this location in the past and it is still a great restaurant. The sliced filet mignon with mushrooms and onions was excellent. Our server, Diana, was great to us. Will always make it a point to come here when we're in NYC.

The Capital Grille had been recommended to us and we weren't disappointed. The extensive wine list has some very good but pricey bottles on it. Our steaks were perfect and the service is a high standard. We enjoyed our evening very much.

This is the 2nd time we stopped here and the food & service were excellent both times. Christian & the rest of the staff seemed to go out of their way for us. The wine we had was exellent. We started with oysters, then my wife had filet mignon & I had the tuna, with creamed spinach. Excellent.

Wonderful food, atmosphere and service in a beautiful restaurant. Steaks were cooked to perfection. Our waitress went out of her way to make the evening special for my daughter's birthday. I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. Great cocktail menu too!

Had the set dinner menu, and the wine tasting. Food was hot and cooked to our liking. Sides were perfect. Choice of 8 wines red and white. Reds were very good! All in all a great Sunday dinner

Always heard about the capital grille so I was strolling by tonight and thought I'd try it out. I had the wedge salad which was very big, It was good but had way too much dressing on it, it was swimming in it. The tuna with ginger rice, the steak was 1 1/2" thick, a nice piece but I've had...

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
