The steak (14 oz bone-in) I had was among the most tender and flavorful steak I've ever had at a restaurant. Although it was a minor miracle to eat a steak here for under $50 (thanks Restaurant Week), I'd be happy to pay regular prices for that kind of quality. Service was also prompt and efficient and the appetizer and dessert were also good.

We were in group of 30 people and we had to decide main dish and desert. I tried 5 different appetizers, main was very tasty Fillet mignon, a litle bit overcooked for me. I had feeling everybody from the group was satisfied, so this is the place to have meal in this area.

Aside from the convenience of having this top notch steak house located near Grand Central and the historic Chrysler Building, we sat in the beautiful atrium section if the restaurant. Even though we dined during hectic restaurant week, the management and servers could not have been more attentive and helpful. The filet mignon and bone in steaks were too shelf and a top 5 in NYC. The sides were not inventive and the desserts were ok. Wine list is very good. All in all, a great pick for midtown east and a happy family experience

Have to say this Restaurant was a delight. A few minutes wait and we we were seated. It was very busy didn't realize it was NY restaurant week until we sat down had an extra menu to choose from.

I had Little neck oysters from regular menu & asparagus & cappuccino
Plus a lovely bottle of merlot wine that didn't break the bank $30 lol

I had from Restaurant week menu
Clam chowder
8 oz steak, SAMs mashed potatoes
Dessert:- Cheese cake with fresh berries.

Julienne our waiter was very pleasant. I just loved how smooth this restaurant operated from my vantage point I could see into the kitchen and no chaos !!

We've been to the Cherry Hill location of a Capital Grill and food was the same and service but the getting a table within minute was fab. Central parking Is ideally located and you can take elevator up to it or walk back to it down ramp!!
Will definitely return.
