If you are a tourist - try delmonico's first for experience but this is the second steak house you should visit if you are done with them. If you are a local - try them at least once because they offer the best dry age bone in rib eye.

I went here for my friends birthday because of the amazing service and wonderful food. They have a valet service in case you need to drive so parking will be a breeze. As soon as you walk in you are greeted with great smile. We were seated immediately so there was no wait based on our reservation. The brunch menu... More

We were certainly not disappoint by the quality of the food or the service. The Porterhouse was great, but the Fillet Was amazing! Good wine, good atmosphere. Really enjoyed the visit.

We just wanted a simple dinner, and that's what we got. Service was nice, but a bit slow, sometimes hard to catch our server's eye, and impossible to catch anyone else's. The dining room is lovely, very classic old school chesterfield steakhouse style, with comfortable chairs. Flatware and glassware are solid. We skipped appetisers - they are called entrees elsewhere... More

Megan our server did a nice job suggesting steak salad and Salmon salad. Fancy place to visit. Upscale type of restaurant. Good for couples, not kids.

The Capital Grille provided my son and I with the best pre-theater meal we could have asked for. We made an early reservation (4:45) to make a 7:00 showtime, and we had plenty of time to lounge and dine. It's wonderful that the dining room is open all day. The waitstaff was attentive and friendly, and after asking if we... More

Had many business dinners here in the past... good location, varied menu and private rooms. Last visit was party of four and not that memorable. The front desk was friendly even though we had to wait.. hope they are not pulling that old Steak and Ale trip where they move you to the bar first... had reservation. The bar is... More

Arrived on a flight from London by 2.00pm and into 2 meetings in Manhattan. Then on for a 'power dinner' at Capital Grille. Cocktails at the bar, and then dinner - half a dozen on shell oysters and a NY strip steak and sautéed spinach. Plus a glass of red. Almost feels like Wolf of Wall Street stuff. Love it.... More

Took my mom for pre-birthday dinner. The service was very good - very attentive waiter but not overbearing, which was just what we liked. We had the tuna tartar, seafood platter for two and two onion soups. All dishes were fresh and tasty. I also had a cup of coffee. We did not try the deserts but they looked great... More

Especially anticipated are our legendary dry-aged steaks, fresh seafood offerings, and a widely heralded collection of over 7,000 bottles of wine. All presented with unparalleled service in an atmosphere of relaxed elegance that serves as a respite to the frenetic pace of the streets outside.

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.
