We always go to the Capitol Grille in NYC and when we go to Vegas. We got into NYC and we couldn't wait to go to eat at one of our favorites. Our excitement was soon turned to disappointment. I ordered my filet mignon medium and it was brought to me so overcooked it was charred on the top. I... More

I went here with my wife for an early dinner today on the spur of the moment and we could not be happier with our experience. We sat at the bar and each ordered a glass or red wine to start. I had the 14oz NY strip and my wife had the 10oz filet mignon, which were absolutely delicious. We... More

The walk from our meeting was pleasant and as we arrived a bit early we were seated right away in this vast hit ceiling room near the windows looking out on the street. Huge beams and struts internet the space.... More

I have eaten at the Capitol Grille in numerous locations, but this one in the iconic Chrysler Building is a favoriate. Lunch today was perfect from start to finish, with outstanding hostesses, wait staff and even the manager came over to see how things were going-- all three of us had outstanding meals prepared to perfection.

We celebrated our Anniversary and my husband's birthday here. My daughter, who lives in Boston and has business dinners at the Capital Grille in the Boston area, highly recommended us to this restaurant. What an amazing welcome we received. There was birthday and heart confetti and cards for us on the table when we were seated. We were served a... More

We have been here several times for dinner but, it was our first time for lunch. We enjoyed a very good lunch at a reasonable price. We started with the lobster and crab cake (super delicious). We then ordered the Lobster Salad (again super delicious) and the Cobb salad with sliced tenderloin (great option). We ended our lunch with one... More

The best kept secret in New York City is The Capital Grille 42nd Street pre-theatre dinner menu. From 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM you can request this special menu. Three full courses are included...soup or salad, the famous bread basket, steak, fish or chicken and a choice of dessert. The portions are amazing, the quality what you expect of Capital... More

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.
