Was here for a family party. We had a private room and the staff could not be better. We were never rushed, treated well (small children and all) with always a smile. Then the food - all so very good. Steaks were good, Filet Mignon...More

A great restaurant with outstanding food and exceptional service. A must when going to the theater. They ask if you are attending a show and the service is scheduled accordingly. Not rushed but on pace to make your show.

Expensive but tasty meal. Not for people/families on a budget. Two mains (two main courses and two sides) and only one alcoholic drink cost us $150. Good service. Nice set up. We had better food in New York for half the price.

Wonderful pre-show dinner! Our severs Fitz and Mohammad were excellent. The shrimp cocktail was special. My tenderloin with lobster tails poached in butter were sublime, my wife’s scallops were amazing, and total meal less than $200 for the two of us, a bargain for food...More

They offer a pre-theater menu daily. You will need to call reservations for the price and menu. We must have thought it was a good deal because my wife and I partook of the offer many times. You will need to ask the front... More

Sorry, remember fine dining is not rushed. Unfortunately you'll run out of time. Perhaps you'll try somewhere else like "fast food"?

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.
