Held a work event here in one of the private rooms and loved it. Food was great, service was great, menu selection was great and the pre-preparation done by the venue was great, too. Would definitely recommend.

I see that Capital Grille is wheelchair accessible. So is it safe to assume that there are no steps into the restaurant and that the bathrooms are located on the same level? We are planning to eat here soon with two people with mobility issues who cannot do steps. Thank you.

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.
