We decided to have a last minute friends dinner. Went online that morning to make a reservation. When we got there, we were seated right away in a private room. The service was great, very nice and helpful waiter. The bread basket was delicious with lots of assorted bread options. Very extensive wine list. Food was delicious. They kept on coming back to fill our water glasses and check on us. Dessert was amazing, especially the creme brûlée. Would definitely come back again.

Outstanding services. Everyone is friendly, nice and polite with great smile. Nice table surprise with décor and hand written note for my best friend's birthday. Given a personal care service. Food was great, highly recommended, especially the Lobster Mac and Cheese. We both had steak and cooked just perfectly to the way ordered. So delicious. A birthday cheesecake was another surprise. "Happy Birthday" written with choc source and a candle on top. Thanks for putting the personal thought and care to your customers. We had a good time and love every minutes we were there. Thanks again.

The Capital Grille - NY-Time-Life Building is the best in Manhattan. I have dined at other locations but none compare to this location. The food is outstanding, service is excellent and it is quiet so you can converse with your friends without shouting. If you go, ask for the pre-theater menu. At $39.00 for a 3 course dinner, it is a great value. I and a friend had the Lamb ribs (3 very meaty ribs) and my other friend had the filet mignon. All were prepared to perfection. The sides of spinach and mashed potatoes were also excellent. For desert, we had ice cream and sherbet. I highly recommend the strawberry ice cream. Portions are generous. I look forward to returning soon.

Party of 7 were in NYC to see a play at 8:00 pm and time was limited - notified our server when
we arrived and she made sure we ordered and had plenty of time to enjoy our dinner and she had the bill ready before we asked so we would not be late for the show. We will definitely go again when we can relax and enjoy the atmosphere longer.

Unfortunately this is the 2nd straight time coming to this location and leaving with bad experience.
Service was extremely poor, and client left early sick from the food.
I am extremely disappointed as I always put your restaurant on the top of my list when taking clients out.

Service was excellent; we were running late and only had an hour to dine - our server got everything to us in plenty of time. My mom loved her filet mignon. I asked for the sesame crusted tuna seared on the outside and totally rare on the inside - it came halfway cooked instead. Edible, but not what I asked for, and we didn't have time for me to ask for another. We had the tomato/mozzarella/basil for an appetizer, something in the dish began making me sick immediately after eating it and lasted for two days, compromised my time at the theater afterwards. I shared the dish with my mom and she was not affected, so in fairness it may be my own sensitivity. We went at holiday time and saw a lot of families, a nice change from expense accounts. I've been to other Capital Grille locations, and they are a first class act, no attitude, plenty of privacy, enough noise dampening so you can actually hear your dinner companions.

My husband and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary on Christmas Eve and the entire dining experience was above and beyond!
Our hostess was very kind but I forgot her name. I remember our hostess being a very pretty black girl who was chocolate shaded with a very stylish French braid!
Our bartender Mike was very charismatic and personable and made an excellent Cosmopolitan and Manhattan 46 for my husband and I.
Our server Princess was outstanding and really made us feel special and accommodated!
My husband loved his steak and my salmon was made just right!
If I had one critique it would only have to be the sautéed spinach but other than that it didn't ruin the evening!
Thank you so much for an amazing time and we look forward to returning to The Capital Grille to celebrate our birthdays in February!

We were at the capital grille on Christmas Eve. We have been several times before and the service and food never disappoint! This time was no exception however we have never had service this good ever! Our server, Diana, went above and beyond for our family of 4. She was incredible! Thank you Diana for making our Christmas Eve dinner experience so amazing! I wish she could have sat down with us that's how awesome she was! Plus the food was incredible as always! We will continue to come back to one of our favorite restaurants!

Our server didn't pay attention. She certainly had a lot to say, but in the end did not deliver a single thing that would make the experience positive. The tuna was ice cold (vs room temp or slightly above). We received steak knives 15 minutes into the meal. And to add insult to injury, the server chased after us on our way out of the restaurant to (using her words) "clarify my writing on the tip amount" which, incidentally, was unmistakably clear. All of these things notwithstanding, we elected still, to leave 20% on all but the tax amount.
Needless to say, I find myself a bit perplexed by the level of service and the lack of professionalism in a place where I'd expect to find anything but that which we encountered.

Capital Grille is always a favorite no matter what city they are located in. The steaks, appetizers, salads, soups and side dishes are all uniquely prepared and the quality of the food is excellent. The service is always 1st class.
I only have a problem with the wine list being served on an IPad. It's just not the same as viewing a printed list. Flemings is the first time I encountered the electronic list and I never liked their method either.
Please provide me with a printed wine list when asked.

The overall review would have been higher if not for the excessive wait time even though I had made reservations. I checked in 15 minutes prior to my time and did not get seated until a half hour later than my reservation time. I spoke to several ladies at the front and all kept saying they will check me in and get a table but nothing happened. I saw parties of the same number (4) arrive later but sit sooner than my party. As this was a business lunch, it was very inconvenient. With so many other restaurants in the area, I would not expect this to happen.

I thought the service was slow and not attentive enough for the price point. I have dinned in several Capital grill locations through out the country and this by far was the worst. I had made reservations in ample time, we waited on arrival, we were stuffed in the back of the restaurant in a table in the corner that impeded on the walking path of the server, I asked to be moved right away and we were relocated to a booth at the front of the restaurant and it just got worse from there. The place seemed unorganized with regard to reservations, seating and service stations.
