Excellent meal! You have to have a steak when in NYC and this really is up there with the best. Highly recommend the tenderloin with lobster tails...simply gorgeous. Our waiter Barry was also superb! Thanks for a great meal.

We ate at this restaurant on New Year’s Eve and what a good choice we made. From the moment we sat down we were thoroughly looked after by our lovely waiter Miquel. He was so friendly, and very professional. A great employee for this restaurant. We decided not to have starters and just ordered main courses and thank goodness we did as the portions are very big but the food is outstanding! The steaks are amazing and cooked to perfection. We did mange a few desserts too which were also delicious. Thank you Capital Grille and special thanks to Miguel for looking after us. Definitely recommend this restaurant!!

The ambience is lovely, low lit and lots of candles, pristine white tablecloths and on arrival our table was scattered with party confetti and a birthday card for my husband. We got a brief history of the restaurant and as I wasn’t drinking alcohol they offered to make me a mocktail based on my fruit preferences.
We were advised that the food portions were big and therefore not to order too much. It was true! All courses were exquisite and cooked to perfection. We got a lovely birthday dessert for free with a candle and two free glasses of champagne-mine was non alcoholic but served in the same champagne flute.
From start to finish the service was amazing and good value given the high quality of food. Highly recommended.

We have dined at the Capital Grill in a number of cities. This one is just down the street from the Grand Hyatt where we were staying. We split a DRY AGED NY STRIP AU POIVRE WITH COURVOISIER CREAM - 14 OZ This is one of our "go to" steaks and plenty large enough to share. We also split a caesar salad which was huge and very tasty. The potatoes were enough for 2-3 people to share. We also had glazed brussel sprouts which were delicious but more than we could eat. The real point of this review is the consistency of the food. Always exceptional.

I can't say the service was up to par. Our steak was delivered and the potatoes, perhaps 5 minutes later. We had to remind our waiter that we ordered the brussel sprouts. We were half way through our meal before they arrived. Not your typical Capital Grill service.

You can't go wrong dining at The Capital Grill but this visit had a glitch in the service. Hopefully it was an aberration. I am sure we will return at some future date. I will update my review at that time.
