My wife and I have only experienced a better steak at one other place. Both of us had the Bone in Kona accompanied by an amazing Potato Gratin. Excellent service by our waiter who was knowledgable about all the dishes and the wines. Managed a starter but just could not sum up the fettle for one of the delicious looking... More

We came here with a fairly large group and we were extremely well taken care of from beginning to end. All the food was excellent as was the wine. This was my first time at a Capital Grille as I don't tend to eat at chains and it was exceptional!

The Capital Grille has become a firm favourite of ours every time we visit the States and is the perfect place for an evening meal. Steaks are exquisite and all the food and wine is excellent. Service is always first class and the Chrysler CG disn't let us down

Great place for dinner. Packed for a Tuesday night, buzzing, energetic. New York in a restaurant! Steak excellent. Service attentive but not overbearing. Architecture meets "old club" look works. Will go again.

I booked this restaurant to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday when we were on holiday in NYC. We were not disappointed - it was fabulous and they really made an effort to make the evening special. The place itself was lovely (quite tradition in its decor - very art deco), the service was excellent (certainly the best that we had... More

We visited Capital Grille to celebrate a special birthday. Having visited CG restaurants in other US cities, our server for the evening, Steve Kotatis, greeted us by welcoming us back to CG and provided a complimentary champagne birthday toast. Having given prior notice to the restaurant via the CG website, the table was very nicely decorated with confetti and a... More

Nice environment, excellent service, bar. Mostly $60 entrees. Starters, vegetables, potatoes are each extra charge, but you need them for a complete meal, and they are enough for two to share. We had a half chicken and also salmon, each under $40 and both were very good. My only complaint is that our table was very close to tables on... More

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.
