Classic steakhouse - big drinks, big wine list, steaks and the usual side dishes. It is a classic steak house and if that is what you are in the mood for, it delivers. There is no place like Peter Luger's, but if you cant get to Williamsburg and need your protein fix, this is as good as any other steakhouse (and better than the traitors who left Lugers to go out on their own, and dont deliver the goods)

As part of our honeymoon trip, the Capital Grille had been recommended to us to try for somewhere special.
We arrived half an hour before our booking and had some time to sample a cocktail at the very chic bar. We were a bit disappointed in the service we received - we found the barman very unfriendly and when we were eventually served by another member of staff, it was below par. However when we were told our table was ready for us, things improved immensely. Our table was situated in a very nice part of the restaurant and our waiter for the evening was excellent. He was very friendly, professional and very knowledgeable about the food menu and the wine list. Our wine of choice wasn't available so we instead chose a gorgeous Californian which was delicious.
Our starters and main courses were absolutely excellent. We both ordered steaks and could hardly finish them. They were mouth watering and served to perfection. Aged dried steaks are the restaurants speciality. We couldn't do dessert justice but our waiter presented us with a dessert on the house in honour of our honeymoon.
We enjoyed our experience here - food was top notch. Its a very business friendly environment but there were other tables like ourselves who were there for pleasure. If asked would I go back, probably not. It was a lovely experience but one I don't think is worth the money compared to other places we visited during our stay in New York.

Nice atmosphere and decor. Hostesses at the front welcoming, firendly. The menu was interesting, but decided on a seafood dish this time. Was satisfactory. Only negative was the mediocre service. Waiter maybe assigned to too many large tables, so poor attention to our table of two. No mention of any specials or the soup of the day. Water glasses left unfilled. It could be better..maybe next time?

Mutliple times advised to me by my NYC colleagues.
Try the Steak. So (my wife and I) did. And that's why I write Steak with a capital. It really was outstanding, so were the starters (Wagyu beef carpaccio and good old Ceasar salad). I count this as one of my best steak experiences. The Arrowood 2009 Cabernet paired fantastic. Limited production, but if they still have it try it! Very intimate and classy atmosphere. Also important, for a restaurant in the center of Manhattan and with this quality of food, still affordable.
