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...

There were many entrees to choose from but we all ordered the 14 ounce steak which were cooked to perfection. We also ordered salad as well as Creme brûlée . Our waiter was very nice... More

My husband made the reservation and said it was our 10 year anniversary. The hostess kindly wished us Happy Anniversary. Our table was ready exactly on time. When I walked up, there were rose petals, glitter hearts, champagne, and a lovely card from the staff. Our waitress Ashley Castleberry was simply amazing. She was so attentive to us. She was...

Enjoyed a wonderful meal at this iconic NYC restaurant. Tuna Tartar as a starter and very well prepared Chilean Sea Bass and Beef Tenderloin with Lobster Tails for entrees. There was a wine event going on called "The Generous Pour" where you could drink as much and as many of 7 wines throughout your meal for $28. We enjoyed the... More

Verdict: The food and service were excellent! The ambience was good although loud. Nonetheless, this was minimized as a result of the great food (Chef's choice porcini rubbed bone-in rib eye was the bomb!!) to the excellent attention to detail provided. It was my birthday so I was greeted with little "happy birthday" signs strewn across the table, a handwritten... More

Called in on the off chance and we were not disappointed. The food was absolutely gorgeous. I opted for the ribeye steak. It was cooked to perfection totally melt in the mouth. Our waiter was Christian looked after us , he recommended wine and explained clearly how the different steaks were cooked. All in all a very nice evening

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.
