Service has noticeably worsened since our last visit several months ago. Service quality should be better given the price of food. Waiters seemed disinterested and distracted.

My steak, and my wife's salmon, were superb. The service was excellent (thank you, Bill Sheridan). The wine list was excellent.

Very delicious food, nice ambiance, and a good wait staff - can't go wrong there. It can get a bit loud in there on Friday and Saturday nights, but that's expected. Highly recommend the lamb chops - they are to die for!

Within the hallowed walls of the Time-Life Building, and surrounded by some of the city’s most heralded attractions from Broadway to Radio City Music Hall, the imminent arrival of The Capital Grille is creating quite a stir of its own. Especially anticipated are our legendary dry-aged steaks, fresh seafood offerings, and a widely heralded collection of over 7,000 bottles of wine. All presented with unparalleled service in an atmosphere of relaxed elegance that serves as a respite to the frenetic pace of the streets outside.
