Capital Grille at Time Warner Centre

Its the no1 New York restaurant on Tripadvisor!

I know Tripadvisor review's can be a bit bizarre, but how does this steak house compare with the other big name steakhouses in New York?

Capital Grille
120 West 51st Street, New York, NY 10020

  1. Actually, TripAdvisor (which is a resource that I use quite often when I travel) ranks as #1 Capital Grille at the Time-Life Building (not Time Warner Centre--very big difference). I find that ranking very scary, and will now be wary about trusting TripAdvisor's rankings in the future.

    BTW, I've never been to a Capital Grille (they are a chain of steakhouses), and I'm sure they're fine, but certainly not the #1 restaurant in NYC. Definitely not the #1 steakhouse in NYC. There are many threads on this board that discuss the best steakhouses in NYC.

    1. re: ellenost

      BTW, I saw that you also have a separate thread about steakhouses in NYC.

    2. I'm sure Capital Grille is fine (certainly not #1 by any measure), but there are too many great only-in-NY steakhouses to waste one's time going to a chain restaurant.

      BTW, I just perused tripadvisor's ranking of NYC restaurants. It is absolutely NOT to be relied upon.
