Fine Dining. We had the lobster and crab cakes as an appetizer followed by two different steaks. The food was just excellent, served on piping hot dishes and brought promptly to the table. Our server was most attentive and friendly. A great place to go for a special dinner for two or a small group.

My first stop was the comfortable and fun bar at Capital Grille. The service was excellent, and the drinks good. The look and scent of the wagu burger at the next table....ah! The hostess was very attentive and helpful when my large party got delayed. The whole operation was smoothly, pleasantly professional and a treat. Most of our group ordered... More

I have a high bar when it comes to steakhouses, so overall my somewhat modest expectations (especially as it is a chain) were exceeded - here are the specifics: 1) Bread: B+ Nice assortment of warm / room temp, not mayson kayser, but still quite nice 2) Spinach Salad: A- Very tasty, hard to not like bacon, dressing was flavorful,...

Leather seats, dark wood, feels a bit stuffy like a members only club but large and discreet. Booking online was easy even for a Saturday evening. The service is professional and very attentive. The wine menu is extensive, the food menu is a bit limited and meals are quite simple.

Good business place to eat with a group. I had oysters which tasted very fresh. They are small but still good. I had steak and lobster for dinner the steak was very good the lobster was a little chewy. The service is always very good.

Very impressive and professional restaurant but please be aware that sometimes some cuts of meat can be high in fat although for the most part quite nice. Menu is very tempting with many nice selections and wines are high quality. Nice and attentive staff. Would definitely come again when in town again.

We were in NYC after a long day of meetings and stopped at the Capital Grille looking for a couple of drinks and some of their lighter fare. We’ve enjoyed their famous steaks before but tonight just needed some seafood appetizers and their lobster mac & cheese. They had some excellent white wine by the glass, and a great seafood... More

No matter how many times I go to Capital Grille, Chrysler Center, I just love everything about it. The ambiance, the food, the service, all rate an A plus. Today I had the lobster and crab burger and it was so yummy. It was a hard decision between that and the Mediterranean salad with grilled shrimp but I'll get this... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
