The Capital Grille - NY – Time Life Building Ratings and Reviews
Great service! Great food!
We had a very enjoyable lunch for our party of 12. Great service and everyone said their food was delicious!

We went to celebrate our daughter's Master degree. The meal was wonderful and the waiter outstanding. Our one problem was with the hostess staff . We had reserved a table for 8:00 PM to celebrate a graduation. We did arrive a bit few minutes early and we assured we would be seated at 8:00. 8:00 came and went. We had one person who needed to make a train and the hostess staff just said the people at our table were still sitting there. They finally gave us a smaller booth after I asked if there was anything they could do. We were the only party not seated and they kept asking my name as if it was a new problem. The waiter was great and served an appetizer to the person who needed to leave.

Great place for pre-theater dinner
From the time we entered the restaurant everything was superb... the menu, the food, service, etc. Highly recommend it.
This was a lunch meeting with a client in Midtown. Nice selection of both beef and non beef menu items. I had the seared tuna, super fresh with original sauce selections, like white soy sauce, rice vinegar and wasabi oil. Server happily substituted fresh broccoli for ginger rice. My companions had the Asian black cod special, which they both agreed was excellent. Server was charming, friendly and non obtrusive, perfect for a business venue. Value was ok given that it's NYC midtown. I always enjoy Capital Grille.
Steak is excellent as is Stoli Doli.

Wonderful visit! Our server was outstanding!
I had the NY Strip but I was a little disappointed in it. It was cooked the way I like it (Med. well) but I like a 'char' on the outside of my steaks & it didn't have that. It was as if it was broiled instead of grilled. But the vegetables, asparagus & au gratin potatoes were wonderful.

We came for pre theater dinner. Grandparents plus grandchildren. Our server was wonderful and accommodated our different arrival times and different levels of ordering. The steak was delicious. Okay, generally don't go to any kind of chain, but this was delicious. It was very welcoming and relaxing.

Overall - Capital Grille wasn't bad but I've experienced better in the past as far as service and food - regardless of the order. Here is a response by one of my guest: "I did not like that the fish I ordered, it was swimming in that sauce and I'm sure we ordered crab cakes".
Excellent food and service
The restaurant continues to live up to my highest standards in both food and service!
Wonderful restaurant and excellent service! From the moment we stepped in, while having dinner and even as we left, the service was exceptional!

We needed a place close to our hotel and the theatre district to have a dinner before our show, and although we rarely frequent chain restaurants, we thought we would give it a try. We were not disappointed. The decor was warm and club-like, our server was personable, professional, and very helpful, and to be honest...our steaks were excellent! What a pleasant surprise!
Great food, great service
This restaurant is consistently top notch. Always a pleasant experience.
Our favorite go-to after work! We love the food, the booths, but most of all, the team members! Very friendly and professional - very well managed restaurant!

Delicious food. The filet mignon is especially good.
Great lamb chops!
Ordered a terrific meal from the pre theater menu. Superb Casear sald, mixed greens, lamb chops - double rib - and creamy mashed potatoes and spinach. Excellent creme brulee and flourless chocolate cake.

Always a delicious meal. The service was great too!
The sirloin steak was PERFECTLY done (rare to medium rare) and my request for extra anchovies for the cesear salad was honored. Excellent meal with my friends to celebrate a birthday.
We always enjoy our meal at Capital Grille. pre Theater menu is a great deal. Ask for it and take advantage.

Great food, great night
Me and my partner ate here for my birthday and it was an excellent evening. The food was fantastic, the service was great and overall I thought the price wasn't too bad either. There was a nice touch too with a free 'happy birthday' dessert which was very tasty! Overall, I would definitely recommend this to people.

The service was excellent, the food delicious, and the value of the 3 course prixe-fixed menu was outstanding. Lots of choices for each of the courses. Must be at the restaurant before 7PM to take advantage of this special, though.

Capitol Grill is one of my go to restaurants and it does not disappoint . The food is consistently good be it Miami , New York , or Chicago . We had the grilled salmon and it was very tastey . I would definitely recommend this restaurant in any of the aforementioned cities .
Our server was outstanding .
Overall, I would rate the Capital Grille as superb. The food was what you would expect from high end restaurant. The service is what made the difference. Our server was excellent....personal , professional and efficient. She did a great job!!
Great food, great service, good atmosphere. Remember to ask for the pre-theater menu. It is not automatically given and it's a bargain not to be missed.
We have never been to a restaurant that is more consistent than the Capital Grille. We go for the $39 pre-theater dinner: salad, entrée, vegetable sides, and dessert. Much mention this: it was my birthday. At some point I must have given my DOB. When we arrived there was beautiful confetti on the table with a birthday card. The maître d' came by to wish me a happy birthday. The waiter was terrific. Much to our surprise, the restaurant brought a beautifully presented a Happy Birthday round piece of cheesecake. We were quite impressed. Kudos to Capital Grille.

Amazing!!! Everything from the cocktails to the amazing food .. (Tuna was to die for!!!) I highly recommend it.
This is an excellent steak house with attentive service and a traditional, yet comfortable atmosphere. Tables are spaced generously for a feeling of privacy. The meal was enjoyable from cocktails to appetizers to main course. The desserts sounded delicious, but we were too full to indulge!
