“Our best meal during our stay”
Reviewed October 11, 2012 via mobile

We walked off the street on a Sunday evening and were easily accommodated . The service was great and were able to easily cater for a children's steak for our 7 year old. The lobster bisque soup special was amazing and the mashed potato so so creamy. Both our steaks were cooked perfectly and my husband had the wagyu special which was so so tasty. Absolutely worth the visit, it's not cheap but I'm more than happy to pay for quality and the Capital Grille did not disappoint

“Great steak and service”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

I went with a business associate - we both thought the steak and service were excellent. It was on an weekday night and had no trouble getting a reservation a half hour in advance. Place is pleasant; not too noisy to carry on a conversation.

“I've never had a bad meal or poor service here.”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

This is a classic steak house, granted part of a chain, but the standards remain impeccably high wherever you dine around the US.

If you want classic steaks, knowledgable waiters that are well mannered and professional, then you can't go wrong with a Capital Grill.

There's also a fantastic wine selection to accompany any of the wine or seafood on offer.

I had a delicious chowder this time and a steak with a lobster tail accompaniment, absolutely delicious.

“a memorable meal”
Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

Last Christmas we finished our trip with a lovely meal at capital grille. We were disappointed that we waited around an hour to be seated despite making a reservation but they apologised profusely and we were given a selection of complimentary entrees. The food was amazing...calamari was delicious, i dont think ill ever find as good a French onion soup, fillet Oscar was divine, truffle fries were a triumph and the potato gratin was delightful. Finished the meal with a glass of pink sparkling wine and slab of heart stopping, calorific, heavenly chocolate cake. Never been so full in all my life. The wine was reasonably priced and very nice. The only thing that let it down was the wait and one of our waiters who could not make eye contact at all and came across quite rude. The only think that baffled us was the water. We are from
England and found it bizarre that the waiter had to ensure our water glasses were constantly full which was lovely but a little bit over the top. also, how could this meal have been such great value for money. We had wine, soups, mains, sides and dessert and it only worked out as £100 per couple including a generous tip. We would have to pay at least double this at home for food of this quality before even considering the tip. Would definately recommend, just hope they can improve their service slightly.

“Awesome NYC venue”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Great food as with all Capital Grills, but the space makes this place really special. The architecture is such that you feel as though you are dining at the TOP of the Chrysler building when you are actually at street level. This is a high-impact location, with solid food and service. i will use it often now that I have experienced it. Major impact on whomevery you take. It's a classy place.
