"There's not one complaint or bad thing I can think of to say about this place! There was a bit of a wait even with a reservation, but there was a free constant flow of champagne so that definitely made up for the time. The service and food were excellent!"

"Capital Grille - NY – Time Life Building
My daughter and I were very disappointed of our dinning experience at this particular Capital Grill. We are big fans of eating at different Capital Grills in all the big cities and are usually very pleased with the service and the food. This one in NYC was mediocre at best. We were sitting in the balcony which overlooked the rest of the restaurant. The Service was to slow and the waiter kept apologizing for the wait. The porterhouse steak was not presented correctly it was not on a sizzling dish in fact it was on a cool dish and I wasn't' sure if the steak was even cooked! The sirloin side had to much grizzle so much so you couldn't even chew it. We ordered two wines for dinner and I was almost finished with my meal before we got the Red wine.
Save your money and skip Capital Grill on 51St. and experience some of the great restaurants that NYC has to offer.

"I made a reservation weeks ago for restaurant week dinner for a very special occasion. When we got there, there was a huge crowd of people in the waiting area. We ended up waiting more than 45 min to be seated. They kept telling us "Your table will be ready shortly".. (I had to be somewhere by 9pm and needless to say I was late to the meeting.) I understand things can get crazy during restaurant week but no one apologized to us or tried to make up for keeping us wait that long. How unprofessional and inconsiderate.
Positive: Filet mignon & creme brulee were good, our server was nice and that's about it.. Will not be going back.

"My co-workers and I have been there many times for lunch and dinner. The food and service are always outstanding. We did miss the larger portions that had been given last year. That is the only improvement we can suggest, since the restaurant is on the pricey side. Lighting is low and ambiance is comfortable and charming in the booths. The wait staff and managers always ask how they are doing. No complaints."

"Wouldn't recommend restaurant week menu. Have been here several times and never had an issue with the regular menu. Not sure whether they use lower-quality steaks for restaurant week options, but worst steak I ever remember having here."
