The Capital Grille was recommended to our group by a Radio City Music Hall Rockette. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We arrived at 5:30 with no reservations and a party of 6. The hostess quickly seated us and our server gave a quick tutorial on the iPad wine list. We all took advantage of the Theater Prix Fixe menu.... More

Not much to say other than the meal was fantastic. Enjoyed the scallops and risotto. I'm a culinary simpleton, but I found their bread assortment to be awesome. My only problem was an unsized stomach which limited my consumption. In a city of amazing restaurants, this one deserves it's high rating. Enjoy!!

Our family was looking for a traditional Thanksgiving meal while in NYC and decided on the Capital Grille. We were not disappointed. All of us chose the Thanksgiving meal with the only variation being with the appetizer - some chose lobster bisque and others the salad. Both were delicious. The portion sizes were large and most of us would have... More

Attended on Thanksgiving evening. Had to wait to be seated, then lady whom sat us, tutted that we passed our coats to her to check in. Then the waitress we had was more interested in quickly serving and turning the table. We had to slow the service down as it was a bit Diner like. The quality of food was... More

First time to this restaurant. I had heard it was fantastic and it was. The decor was pleasant and had a calming effect. The staff was attentive. The NY strip was tender and cooked to perfection as were the asparagus and mushrooms. Well worth the cost.

My wife and I decided to have Thanksgiving Dinner out this year and chose the Capital Grille. There are very many excellent restaurants in NYC but we wanted something with a more American traditional feeling for Thanksgiving. The restaurant is beautiful inside with large painting of old men hanging on wood paneled walls, a very classic look. The food was... 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.
