I had an amazing steak very well prepared and tasted delicious. The service is ok. I liked the ambiance. Sexy meant getting off work still dressed in their suits and ready to relax and have a good conversation and a pretty girl. I have a great time good cocktails and amazing food!

If you want a place free from the tourists swarming a few blocks over, this is it. The pumpernickel bread was so delicious it was like having dessert first. Sweet corn soup was the best I've ever hard. A flaky crust on the sea bass made this meal one of the best we had in New York. Then we walked... More

Capital Grille consistently delivers with a great drinks and wine menu and excellent food. We stopped by to refuel after shopping and sat near the window to people watch.

I really love the Capital Grille for its great drinks and the amazing bar food. I recommend the Stoli Doli, which is their special, as well as the filet mignon sliders and the truffle fries. The drinks are consistently high quality, the bar staff are hilarious and take amazing care of you even when the bar is packed full on... More

After seeing a Broadway on show on July 6th we went for a birthday dinner for my husband. Upon our arrival the hostess was very pleasant. Our meal was excellent and so was our server Richard. A delicious birthday dessert arrived at the end of our meal which we did not request. It was a nice surprise. Will return again.

We picked up the tab for a half dozen friends and the check was fair and without a tip included, which I appreciate as I've too often tipped on top the tip. I had lamb chops, just a touch over the medium rare I rodered, my wife, Kat, had a perfect filet. A friend had a bone in filet and... More

Recently had a business dinner with four colleagues. The wait staff were very helpful and friendly and provided very personalized service. The steaks were well prepared and very flavorful. The appetizers and sides were also wonderful. My only complaint was that we had a private room, yet the noise from the main restaurant seating area was so loud that it... 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.
