my wife and I went to the Capital Grille at the Chrysler Building for a nice evening. We have been to the location in Dallas and thoroughly enjoyed our meal there, so decided to try the one in New York.

the food was just as exceptional as we remembered. The service , however, left a little to be desired. At the Dallas locations our server made us feel as though we were the only ones in the restaurant. Here, even though we were 1 of just a few tables left in the restaurant, it felt like the server had forgotten about us. The busboys/assistant servers were much more helpful and attentive than our main server.

All in all, the food outweighs everything. I highly recommend the Capital Grille if you're looking for a nice dining experience in the New York area.

I went for a business lunch and all 3 of us ordered the 'sushi-grade' tuna....it was anything but. Each of us received an enormous portion of yellow fin tuna, not ahi, and it was very hard to slice, even with a steak knife. The tuna was so fatty and almost inedible. The tuna came with 3 sauces and there certainly wasn't enough for the size of the tuna steak. The service was good and the ambience was nice - but the food was awful. I ordered this same meal 3 weeks ago at the location in Philadelphia and it was a great meal..shame on the Chrysler bldg location.

They have a quite interesting menu. Food was really good. I was told that especially the meat is fantastic. I thought it was a bit overpriced since portions were not that big.
Service could be much better. Not attentive at all.
Nice atmosphere.

Loved their steak!And I had a small cup of lobster bisque that was amazing.The fact that you have the calories now in the menu cuts the appetite a little, but these were well spent calories.

I had an incredible meal at The Capital Grille during the current restaurant week in NYC. The appetizer choices were great. The steak was cooked as requested and tasted great. The dessert was amazing as well. I would definitely return!
