The Capital Grille - NY – Time Life Building Ratings and Reviews
Had an early dinner at 4:00
for an early 7:00 show. Hostess was very patient w walking directions from port authority. Bartender was very terrific offering samples of Pinot grigio to choose from. Our waitress was beyond sweet, charming and informative.
She also reminded us of th time so we wouldn't be late for our show.
I love coming to The Capital Grille with friends -- mostly celebrating birthdays with them. I take them to The Time Life Building location because of the pre-theatre dinner, and my familiarity with some of the staff. The icing on the cake this month (and next month) is their Generous Pour promotion, to go along with the pre-theatre dinner which makes it a win/win. While not inexpensive, it is a great deal for a quality meal, accompanied by wine. The food is always perfectly prepared, the staff is attentive, the ambiance is lovely, and the noise level is well within reason. This is my go-to place for celebrating with my friends and family.
This restaurant has great food that is prepared to your wishes. The menu is mostly seafood and steaks. The service is excellent and the wait staff is attentive and available. I recommend this restaurant and will return in the future. I have eaten at other Capital Grilles in different cities and have not been disappointed with the food.
Great meal and service... though I don't understand why the table for two in front of the restroom is there. Room was fairly empty, so why you would sit anyone there escapes me! I was reseated, but it bothered me the hostess put my wife and I there to begin with..,. a small wrinkle in an otherwise excellent experience.
Great experience. Went for our anniversary. They had a nice card and champagne waiting for us. And a nice dessert tray to finish off the meal. The summer menu included a shaved brussel sprout salad that was delicious. I also had the tuna tartare that was delicious as well. Very fresh and light. One of our favorite restaurants that we choose for special occasions. They did not disappoint once again. Above and beyond what I expected.
My wife and I were in the City to see a couple of Broadway plays. In between our matinee and 8pm show we had dinner at the Capital Grille. Our waiter Micheal was great and very attentive. The manager Melissa made our visit a wonderful experience. We will certainly be back.
We had a wonderful dinner celebrating our friend, Lois, birthday. You are her favorite restaurant as well as mine. Once again, our server, Rikki, was outstanding. He made everything go smoothly and informed us about each wine in the "Generous Pour" . We enjoyed each of them and look forward to coming back to have our favorites. Keep up the great work!
As a regular diner at this Capital Grille, I always appreciate the attention paid to me when I am dining alone. On this occasion, I had tickets for a Broadway show and needed to be served quickly and leave within 60 and 75 minutes. I ordered from the pre-theatre menu and with the assI stance of my server Brienna, they made it happen. And the meal was excellent. My only complaint is that they have changed the Kona Coffee rub and it is not a good change. Otherwise, this is still my go-to place.
We came in for dinner between the matinee and the dinner performance. The food was good as always, but the servers were less enthusiastic about our presence. We've been here many times and had a lovely time with excellent service so we will not be put off by this experience.
AMAZING!! When I booked the reservation, I noted that we were celebrating our anniversary . They went all out and wished us verbally a "happy anniversary" and escorted us to our table where they had sprinkled little heart shaped confetti on the table along with a special hand written card wishing us a Happy Anniversary! What a nice touch! The decor was beautiful with rich wood paneling and great layout. Best of all, food was OUTSTANDING! Everything was delicious along with a great plate presentation. Both my husband and I said that this was one of the nicest restaurants we have ever visited in NYC and we would highly recommend and would definitely return!! A+++
Capital Grille is always great. For the 1st time, our service was not we are used to. We have been many times and would not hesitate to return. Next time we would ask that our food order be returned to the kitchen, and they start from the beginning. Don't be put off; we have been here 12-15 times in the last few years and love it.
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary. We were treated by a beautifully decorated table, lovely card and champagne! It made our dinner very special. The waitress was so sweet, patient and helpful. We enjoyed our dinner rather than being rushed through it. The food was very good -- although the creamed spinach was lacking flavor. The lamb chops were cooked perfectly and so was my husbands steak. We did not go home hungry!!!
