Terrific dinner at The Capital Grill. Waygu strip steak was perfectly cooked and tender. Definitely worth the extra few dollars. Also had lobster stuffed with shrimp and crabmeat. Delicious.

We had a wonderful waiter, Nick. We were given a private room for our son’s graduation. They included festive table decorations , a handwritten card and special dessert. The food was excellent. Well worth the cost.

Well...it was another OUTSTANDING meal at the Capital Grille! The steaks were tremendous, sides of Lobster Max & Cheese and Brussel Sprouts were perfect and a wonderful double bottle of Cabernet. I have to also mention the Truffle Butter for the steaks which adds a richness not be overlooked. Oh and the service......absolutely stellar!

We have dined at the Capital Grille numerous times. This time there was a problem. The kitchen gave all the lamb chops to a party so at 5:00 there was not one order available for the entire restaurant. We were greatly disappointed as this was our reason for coming. We ordered something else which was alright but not what we really wanted.
We were surprised that there was no visit from the manager to explain why the kitchen was so poorly managed. Very disappointing.

Really appreciated how our server directed us through the menu (quickly) so we could order appetizers and entrees that could be prepared fast - allowing us to have power lunch in a one-hour window! Sword fish steak, calamari, parmesan truffle fries, and steak filets were outstanding!

I have eaten before at this Capital Grille. It was quite good in the past. I was with my family celebrating my birthday and I decided to go to Capital Grille. The food was ok and not great as I had remembered. The first basket of bread was very hard and we asked for new. It was much better. The overall experience was just not what I remembered. Not sure if I will return. There are other steak houses to try in this city.

We’ve been to this outpost of Capital Grille several times and they continue to deliver a great dining experience. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Wine list had a lot of good choices at a range of price points. Wine prices were “decent” for NYC. Food was great. Steaks were served as ordered (medium rare was indeed medium rare). There are plenty of good choices for a quality steak in NYC. The 51st Street Capital Grille is on our list for sure.

I have been going to lunch and dinner here for over 20 years now. The food is always excellent, along with the service. The booths are charming and have white tablecloths, if you want elegant dining, which I do. They provide a nice birthday celebration if you're entered into their system. Sign up, it's great. I love the steak, burgers, calamari, desserts, drinks, and everything else. The lobster bisque is great, too. Go before or after the theatre. Make a reservation first!

Due to extreme traffic we were late to the restaurant but I called and let them know and they said no problem. When we got there we mentioned we had theater tickets so they said no problem to get us out in time which they did. Our waiter was excellent and the food was so good and we left there feeling like we had a great meal.
