The Capital Grille - NY – Time Life Building Ratings and Reviews
LUNCH MEETING APPROVED: Having a lunch m ...
LUNCH MEETING APPROVED: Having a lunch meeting at this location was excellent. The waiter immediately could tell we were there for business first, and was not pushy or constantly checking/interrupting. The noise level was moderate providing the comfort to speak normally without your voice carrying. I had the Cobb salad with my steak cooked medium-rare along with iced-tea. I will return for dinner entrees and drinks. See you sooner than later.

Nice large tables with a lot of open space for a non crowded feeling. Our waiter was fun and knowledgable and the service was great! Excellent wine list and they even had several years of Screaming Eagle available , should you be so inclined! My favorite is the kona crusted steak, lobster Mac and cheese and mild mushrooms. Will definitely be back! Great birthday celebration!

We went to this well known restaurant for a special birthday. The birthday decorations and the special card acknowledging our special event was a nice touch. The service was great, very friendly and attentive. The bread basket fantastic! The food.....eh. I am a steak lover and ordered my steak medium per the waiters suggestion, pink center. As my steak "rested" on my plate instead of the kitchen, I watched it go from medium to medium well with very little sign of "pinkness". It was tough and overcooked. I should have ordered it medium rare. The dessert on the birthday plate also, very nice . For the cost of this dinner keeping in mind everything being ala carte like most steak houses, I would not run back here, too many other great steak places in the city. I was disappointed and didn't want to be. I was looking forward to a great meal.☹️

We had probably one of the worst meals ever at the Capital Grille in NYC (Time-Life). The first steaks were both cooked incorrectly, they returned w/ 2 new steaks (possibly the same ones) that were not much better. Since it was 11pm, we ended up eating them and the 2 cold sides, though we should have returned them.

Wow! Great dining experience! Double Lamb Chop and mash potatoes paired with a great cabernet were out of this world! Gabe at the bar was by far one of the best bartender I have every experience! If I could give a 6 star, I would in heartbeat!

As a CG wine locker owner, I have been to many CG's and always am treated as a loyal customer. Not so at this particular location. Our waiter, Bill delivered our 3 meals; my sea bass was cool, the other dishes were at the correct temperature. I took one bite and had to wait for quite a few minutes to get Bill's attention. Rather than apologizing, he grabbed the dish and gruffly walked off with it. Many minutes later he returned with the same piece of fish and immediately disappeared. This time it was heated to an extreme temperature (microwave?) and very over cooked. Bill was nowhere to be found so we finally called the manager over, got an apology and a freshly cooked piece of fish. By the time I finally got my dinner, my companions had already finished theirs. I know it's NY, but you don't serve a $46 sea bass cold and then act like it's the diner's fault.

Chef does not know what a medium rare should be - tried to force us to eat the steak he cooked imagining that it was medium rare when in fact it i is medium well. He cut through the steak and showed a little pink in the middle hahaha little pink is medium well chef!!!
Hair in Lobster Mac and Cheese which was disgusting - Manager apologizes and took it out! Generous Pour was good and Cheesecake is always good! Will never return to this location anymore and will always stick to my Westbury location!

We made reservations for my sister in-law's birthday for a party of three! She enjoyed the food, it's presentation, service, ambiance and overall dining experience. She was particularly impressed by the birthday surprise she experienced! She could not say enough about the staff and overall experience. Thank you for making her birthday a special one!

We were celebrating our 50th anniversary. Our table was decorated, a special card was propped up on the lamp and we were served complementary champagne to start our evening. Everything about our meal and experience was exceptional. Special thanks to our waitress Diana. Thank you!

My 3 friends and I had an incredible night last Friday, August 19th. We were there for the Generous Pour and it turned out to be the last night of Restaurant Week, so we took advantage of that as well. The food was as great as usual and the wines served as part of the Generous Pour ranged from good to excellent. Our wonderful server, Sarah Stone, was as amazing as usual. She kept things moving and took great care of us with wit and verve. We left with full stomachs, a little tipsy and extremely happy. Thanks again to the Capital Grille Time Life. I will be back soon.

We went to Capital Grille during Restaurant Week in NYC. We had been to several other restaurants during the week and ate their special menu offerings. Capital Grille served normal portions and regular menu items at the Restaurant Week price. The food was excellent, the service impeccable, and the ambience very elegant. We highly recommend it!

Firstly, our appetizer did not impress at all. It was a quartered lettuce with Blue Cheese sauce & bacon bits. Really? A quartered lettuce?
Our entreé did not improve the dining experience. The sirloin steak looked really good when it arrived. The outside was grilled to perfection. However, when I cut into it, my medium rare steak looked very peculiar. I put a piece in my mouth & wondered whether the meat was pre-cooked & finished on the grill. It didn't taste like meat at all! It tasted more like tender rubber. Is this how American steakhouses do steak?
Finally, I ordered a Generous Pour & it didn't seem very generous at all. There was a line on the glass indicating how much wine should be inside but it was only 2/5 of their goblet.
Nonetheless, the service was excellent. Our server took good care of us & was very professional. The bread basket was good. Their fries were good. Their dessert (Créme Brulee & cake) was good too.
I hope that their Restaurant Week offering is not a real depiction of their kitchen's ability because I am severely disappointed & Never Returning.

The food was excellent as always! It was only surpassed by the service of our server---Brandon. He was one of the most professional waiters I have seen in a long time. Brandon is definitely the good will ambassador for the Capital Grille in the Time Life Building.

Celebrated shared birthdays and the staff couldn't be nicer. We were presented with complimentary glasses of champagne and a lovely cheesecake for dessert. The food was great as usual but the service was 2nd to none. A great evening.

From the moment we walked in we were treated like we were the only customers the staff needed to worry about. The service was excellent. The food was delicious. The steaks were incredible and the mashed potatoes were awesome! Finished dinner with the tastiest desserts. All in all the experience was worth it.

This restaurant has an ambient atmosphere. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave us some really good recommendations. She asked us if we re seeing a show. When we told her that we were seeing a show afterwards, she made sure that dinner was served in a timely, yet not rushed fashion. The food was delicious in generous portions. We will come back again, as we have in the past.

Went for restaurant week. Dry-aged bone-in strip was cooked perfectly. The generous pour is a great way to supplement your meal. Service was great. Our waiter kept coming back with bottles to refill our generous pour.

I tried Capital Grille for the first time during NY restaurant week. It was an excellent value. Starting with signature crafted cocktails- then on to wedge salad and our entrees- Everything was delicious. I was skeptical as the restaurant is part of a chain. No problem- excellent- I would happily return to dine at the Capital Grille- great food, drink and service. We leisurely dined for almost 3 hours- I expected them to turn the table- did not happen. Great experience.
