Everything was great as usual. We worked with a young lady, her name started with Mc....she was awesome. Nicholas Savino was extremely professional. He is a great addition as a Manager. Very friendly and genuine. Thanks for everything, as it is much appreiated! Alan
Pre Theater menu is a great bargain for NYC. The steak is the same one that later in the evening is considerably more for exactly the same steak- without the rest of the meal! Dine before 7PM and ask for the special menu! You won't regret it!
Always a winner!
I have written a review on this restaurant so many times before and they all say the same thing - excellent on every point! If you love steak then this is for you! We ordered once again the filet mignon! It was prepared exactly the way we like it! The rest of the meal was superb as well! The bread basket is always a delight! We celebrate many special occasions here! Highly recommended!!!!!

Salad was good but onion soup was like dishwater. No flavor and too much mozzarella uncooked. Service was impeccable though.
This place was quiet, romantic, relaxed, and just delicious. The staff was very nice to us, even though we were obviously slightly out of our league here. We had the house wine, which was great. And I had a steak, which melted in my mouth.
This was our first time at Capital Grille, but it won't be our last. I ordered the Cobb salad. The steak was the best I ever had. My companion had the crab & lobster burger. It was wonderful. The service was excellent. Beautiful decor. The manager even visited our table to see how our meal was. Will definitely go back.

We had the most amazing food. KENNY was the best waiter I've ever had in my entire life. Go to capital grille and REQUEST KENNY to be your waiter!!!
I was disappointed . The spinach salad had no taste and had large bacon slices in it instead of small chopped crispy pieces. The lamb chops were too sweet; there was either some sort of cranberry or raisin sauce that did not belong on lamb chops. The asparagus had some sort of a lemon taste that no one at the table liked and were inedible. The chocolate cake desert was decent. The service was quite good . I only wish the food had matched the service. Unfortunately I cannot recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Very good service. Fresh Oyster appetizer very good; steaks a bit pricey, but tasty.
Great prix fixe
We love coming here for the pre-theatre menu! You can't go wrong and it is still so much food! An appetizer, entrée, side and dessert for $39?? Unbelievable and cooked to perfection. We always have leftovers. Came with three girlfriends to celebrate two of their birthdays. A great night as always. Our steaks were cooked as we ordered them - as they always are.
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!
