Tried the Restaurant Week menu.
I started with the field greens with shallot champagne dressing. Very tasty dressing.
We all ordered the signature cheeseburger with truffle fries with variations on doneness but the beef patty came out looking like it was all cooked medium-well. No matter as the beef patty was still very moist and tender. It was a lot of food, we didn't finish the fries.
For the RW desserts, we chose all three--flourless chocolate espresso cake, CG handcrafted ice cream (vanilla) and season fruit sorbet (raspberry). Didn't like the flourless cake; the ice cream and sorbet were excellent.

We booked our reservation using 'Open table' a week prior to our reservation, specifying that it was our anniversary. Upon arriving at Capital Grille, we were warmly welcomed by the hostess, escorted to a ""Happy Anniversary"" confetti sprinkled table, and given a complementary champagne toast! We loved the personal touch. Our evening was further enhanced by a fantastic meal- Porcini Delmonico Steak and side of Lobster mac and cheese. My husband ordered the Kona-Crusted Tenderloin. Our waiter, Adam, was outstanding and provided us with a complementary dessert when we weren't able to choose from the decadent selections! A wonderful dining experience for a young, but mature couple looking to order red meat!

The only memorable thing about my meal was the check. There are just too many great places to eat sea food in New York for me to spend as much as I did. Funny but no matter how much money I make, I guess I will never truly leave the 'class' that I was born in and love.

Service was good... the waitress was very nice... the wine list was extensive. We had a bottle of cabernet which was excelent. I had the Delmonico Steak from the ""Chef recommendations"" section i wanted it medium but it was basically well done. that will be my only complaint. Lobster and Crab cakes were excelent.
overall its just an average steakhouse.

I don't think I've ever had a more perfect dinner. Sure, I dropped over two bills on four courses and amazing bottle of wine, but everything down to the service was perfect. As soon as we were done with a dish, the wait staff had our next one on the table. If you are looking to take someone on the perfect first date, of show someone what NY dining is all about, this is the place.

I have eaten at alot of steak houses in nyc...the big ones and the little ones from Luggers, Mortons, Dylan's Prime, Ben & Jacks, Sparks, Palm, Prime house, Quality Meat, BLT Prime, and many more but this is still my favorite.
First and foremost the ambiance and the setting of the main dining room is far above the normal decor of steak houses. The staff (Especially our server who we request every time Neda) is experienced and knowledgeable about all dishes. My favorite steak of all time has to be their Delmonico cut with Kona sauce.
Don't ever worry about getting over cooked steak..they have a great system/ variety for temps. You can choose from the normal medium rare to a medium rare plus which is not yet medium.
Wine selection can be great, especially if your company has a private shelf there, but the sides are ok. Nothing like the signature sides at quality meats, but their fresh seafood for apps is a great start. Avoid the lobster bisque at all costs thou it is very very creamy and tastes horrible.

We went to the Capital Grille this past Saturday night and had a great time. The service was great, as was the wine list and overall atmosphere. We had a 7:30 reservation and were seated promptly.
My husband had shrimp cocktail which he said was very good. I ordered the steak tartare appetizer. It tasted good, the only thing was that the eggs should have been chopped finer and the capers were a bit abundant to have 'hidden' them all under the meat and egg. It made it difficult to tone back on the capers as they were practically mixed in already.
We both had the bluecheese salad and Delmonico (rib-eye) steaks. The steaks were cooked perfectly and tasted terrific. They were delicious!!
All in all we had a nice time, with great food. I would definitely recommend the Capital Grille!

I did not have a bad time. However, it was not the best fine dining establishment I've ever been to. The waitperson was attentive, but not very warm. The food was good, but not great. The prices are high and there are other places with better cheaper food.
