The location in mid-town Manhattan (just adjacent to the Chrysler Building) is perfect. The atmosphere and interior decor is all business...starting with the large painting behind the reception desk of that famous corruption-fighting politician Fiorello La Guardia. He was New York City's mayor from 1934 to 1945 and also served in the U.S. House of Representatives. Service and food were... More

Went for dinner on a Wednesday before a Rangers' game and was able to get a table without a reservation after about a 30 minute wait - not bad. The bar and restaurant were very crowded but the service at both was excellent. One of the first questions from the waiter after he learned that we had to make the... More

I always wonder how they maintain their service and quality! It's magnificent each and every time I visit - at all locations. From the moment you walk in, stellar service. This was my first time to this particular location and I was very impressed. We sat right next to the window and it was a great quiet spot to enjoy... More

I came here because a friend of mine asked me if I wanted a typical American steak. Very elegant place. Waiters committed. Food excellent and the cantine big! I definitely recommend this restaurant. Not so cheap of course but in line with NY prices.

The food here is very expensive but its also very good. The restaurant is quite dark and moody and gives off a posh vibe. It wasnt as bad as it seemed. We all got excellent meals and grat service. Worth visiting for a one off treat

A few months ago, my husband & I were invited to have dinner there with friends & the food was so yummy we were determined to go back. The second time, I started with THE VERY BEST lobster bisque I've ever had!!! (& I'm originally from Massachusetts, so I know what good lobster bisque tastes like.) The filet mignon was... More

I had the opportunity to eat at Capitol Grille on 42nd street and it did not disappoint. I sat at the bar and the service was outstanding. I had a dinner drink and then ordered the french onion soup which was brought to me nice and hot. For my main entree I decided to eat the Bone-In Kona Crusted Dry... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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.
