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

The restaurant certainly caters to business professionals at lunch. However I saw father daughter dates as well as other seemingly celebratory type events. It is not inexpensive and for lunch prices, I would say if not for our firm's treat, I may not have tried it. That being said, I will definitely go back and spend my own $$$.

This restaurant is part of my favorite when I go to NYC. I like in particular the dry aged porterhouse and, of course, the decor.

Went to this restaurant for restaurant week. The service was excellent The wine selection was good. Having a wine list on an Ipad was impressive. I ordered a filet mignon. It was dry and had little flavor. The mashed potatoes were just ok. I expected so much more for a "high quality restaurant" and was a little disappointed.

We had a wonderful, faultless meal to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday on 12 August! The service, attention to detail, food, location, staff and ambiance were all perfect. PLEASE open a restaurant in London! Particular mention goes to Steve our fantastic waiter!

So my wife and I visited NYC following some training I'd done there for my job. It was my wife's first time in the Big Apple, and it happened to be Restaurant Week, so we decided to experience a few nice places near our hotel. As we were exhausted that first day we opted for the Capital Grille, which was... More

We went for a nice lunch and extremely pleased. The service was excellent with the staff politely and timely asking if we needed anything. The food was also excellent. Would highly recommend if you are looking for a very nice restaurant with excellent food and service.

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.
