Not overwhelmed! Quite loud. Service was excellent, food was not. Calamari too many peppers; bread basket very nice; ribeye too vinegary and very tough. Complimentary after dinner drink and desserts a nice touch.

It was the first time any of us had been there and it was a special occasion. We went at 1pm and it was a little loud it was still the lunch crowd. We had a perfect table in the corner for our group. Natalie was our server and she took special care of our co-worker who retired at the end of 2018. The food was great. If you are looking for the cheaper side to spend this is not it. If you are looking for great service and great food it is worth every penny! Go and Enjoy!!!

It can carry the stigma of a chain restaurant and get lost in traffic with other big names in the steak business, but don’t let that steer you wrong because Capital Grille is the real deal.

I’ve visited a variety of locations, most recently for a business lunch at midtown east, and each time it has delivered.

For this latest lunch trip, our group of three ordered oysters, mushroom bisque and clam chowder to start. All excellent.

We followed that with two porter house steaks to share cooked medium rare. They were cooked and seasoned perfectly. Could not have been more pleased. My favorite part is always the filet. Each bite is just delectable.

For sides, we had yummy Brussels sprouts and mash potatoes. Perfect compliments.

And we finished off with some tea and coffee.

The ambience and service took the experience to the next level. The space and decor are upscale and charming. Our server was a gentleman and even inquired as to any time constraints. We were served our meals like special guests. And the courses arrived in reasonable times and we were in and out seamlessly.

I think Capital Grille is particularly great for business lunches. It certainly is on my short list.

I have had friends and family rave about Capital Grille, but only just recently gave it a go. Terrific atmosphere, food perfectly prepared, and service second to none. Our server Steven R. was all anyone could want in an attentive, yet unobtrusive server. Every selection we had was right on point. Highly recommended.
