Easy to sit at the bar (ask for Gabe!) and have dinner if flying solo. Excellent tomato-mozzarella salad, delicious steak oscar and sautéed spinach. Great ambiance of other solo diners. Gabe makes fabulous cocktails.

We had a lovely late 0meal here after the theater one evening. Even though we arrived close to closing time our waiter was gracious and the food was delicious. We especially enjoyed the veal chop, steak & lobster, and the flourless chocolate cake.

We had a lovely lunch in the street-facing rooms. A BIG negative is that we had to ASK the inattentive, discombobulated, and generally out of it waitress for the lunch special menus. The food itself was delicious, while the wine was lacking in volume. I...More

I usually try to avoid chains when in NYC but the location of CG worked perfectly for a business lunch. The staff was professional, polite, attentive and the food was all above average. If you find yourself in Mid-town and in need of a solid...More

The food here is always good. The service is great and if it's lunchtime, you can normally get back to work in time.

Great location near Times Square. We loved the atmosphere, lighting and service. Crab cocktail came with 2 great sauces, generous portion to share. Tenderloin with butter poached lobster was amazing- wow! The scallops and risotto good but kind of plain. We had a special anniversary...More

No view. The atmosphere is a mix between local business types having a sitdown meal with a client and some tourists. Throw in a local here and there and you have pretty good mix. Its very close to the Radio City Music Hall... More

Within the hallowed walls of the Time-Life Building, and surrounded by some of the city’s most heralded attractions from Broadway to Radio City Music Hall, the imminent arrival of The Capital Grille is creating quite a stir of its own. 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.
