The Capital Grille - NY – Time Life Building Ratings and Reviews

Service was altogether very good but found it quite pricey! Wine selection is very ample but you have to know your wines to be able to select a fairly good sensibly priced one. Fortunately I am knowledgeable about wines and selected a reasonably good and fairly priced one. Otherwise you may end up with a very expensive one as the sensibly priced wines are very limited. But overall its an excellent restaurant mostly geared to cater to the expense account business crowd. I ended up paying some $500 + tip for our family party of five, no cktls but one bottle of wine @$60. By the way, our waiter Ronnie was impressive and truly made our dining experience there very pleasant.

I took my wife there for an early birthday celebration, prior to seeing Franky Valli at the Lunt-Fontaine Theater, I have eaten at the Capital Grille in DC quite a few times, so I knew what to expect. She was pleasantly surprised at the special set up they did for her birthday. The food as always was on the money, but what surprised me the most was the champagne and dessert they brought out. It was delicious and just made our dinner reservation that much more special.

This was an absolutely excellent restaurant. The steaks were just fantastic and the atmosphere was formal but not stuffy. Staff were great and attentive and we would go back in a heart beat. Diana was our server and really made our evening special.

First time at The Capital Grille and it was a great experience. The reservation was available on time. The staff was helpful and courteous. They were attentive but not hovering. The booth was comfortable and the noise level support conversation. The food was great.

Made us wait 15 mins even though we had a reservation. Scallops were way overcooked, and the steak tasted like something your neighbor Bob makes on his grill. Asparagus that was ordered never came. Only good things were the bread in the beginning and the sorbet at the end.

It was an off night for this Capital Grill. Problem seemed to be our server who didn't get our order correctly. Also, we waited a bit too long for our entree and then one had to be sent back. Managing Partner was very gracious and understanding and comped our desserts. Our experience was not typical for our visits to CG and will not prevent coming back and letting the MP know in advance.

whenever our family is having a special occasion we always choose Capitol Grille. They always make the occasion seem special and the food and service , well, there isn't anything negative I can say. If you want an evening where you can have conversation without shouting across the table, enjoy a fabulous meal (kona coffee steak is my favorite) and receive superior service this is the place for you. Enjoy

Capital Grille always delivers and this location is no exception. Mid-town location is convenient if spending time in NYC. The service we attentive and the food delicious. We were not on a schedule but the service was prompt. They were not busy that day and never felt hurried. Appears to cater to a business crowd. Recommended.

The pre theatre menu is an exceptional value. They don't scrimp on the meal, though they are giving you a great meal. The choices are also excellent. Something for everyone. Of course, the regular menu is great, especially the sliced steak and the potatoes au gratin.

We had our 11 th wedding anniversary dinner here Friday night what a great experience.
The waiter Ricky was amazing and the bus boy Mohamed was super sweet. Will definitely go back so much better then the capital grill I visited in financial district.

We were greeted with smiles and felt very welcomed. Spent a few minutes at the bar where the bartender (female) made an excellent old fashion. Then sat for dinner where Bill took good care of us, even addressing an issue with one of our orders with speed and finesse. Steak was tender and cooked perfectly.

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.
