Description: 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.

“Excellent food and atmosphere; Priced accordingly (for Manhattan)”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

I was here with a large group, and we had a great dinner. The filet mignon was excellent, as were the side dishes. I was a guest, and didn't have to spend anything, which was even better; the prices were not outrageous for New York City, but people unaccustomed to Manhattan prices would experience sticker shock ($43 for the steak, sides and drinks were extra). It's an upscale, very pleasant dining experience, with excellent food. if I was footing the bill personally, I might try to find something with less impact on my wallet.

“First anniversary dinner”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

We went to the Capital Grille to celebrate our first anniversary. It was an excellent choice!! We were greeted so nicely, the table was decorated, we received a free dessert; and they took a picture of us to give it to us as well. The food was delicious from the salad to dessert. The prices are not cheap, but you expect to pay a little more for such a nice meal. The atmosphere was perfect for our romantic celebration. I would recommend eating here for a special occasion and would definitely go back. We were on this particular trip for 8 days and it was the best meal we had the entire time.

We went there twice. The second time after we did not like the sitting in a neighbor famous steakhouse. The decor is a bit old-fashioned but respectable. On both occasons the service was outstanding, professional, professional and patient. The 4 appetizers we shared were excellent. The meat dishes were done to our exact specifications and were of the highest quality. The side dishes are very large (beware!). The wine is vast and some are priced similar to what we experienced in low-cost restuarants.
We certainly plan to come again.

“Birthday celebration”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

We booked this restaurant for my 60th birthday celebration meal . We were served by Patrick he was an excellent waiter, he was attentive without being over powering. We have eaten here several times before so knew that the food would be good which it was. Wine selection was good. I didn't want any fuss for my birthday but they made it special . Thank you.
