The quality of the food, the stellar service and the upscale ambiance all contribute to a great experience. Our only disappointment was that there appeared to be several choices not on the menu that our waiter did not make us aware of - lobster bisque, shoestring fries. We would have definitely been interested. Another suggestion would be to provide more... More

We did enjoy our experience. It was our 14th anniversary. Capital Grille goes all out for anniversaries, but you pay a price. They have rose petals and heart confetti on the table, give you a handwritten anniversary card, champagne at the end of your meal with dessert on a plate that says "congratulations." The congratulations is written on with something... More

My husband and I chose The Capital Grille for the last night of our vacation, and what a marvelous end to our trip! From the moment we arrived, the staff was courteous and personable, keeping an eye out for anything our table might need. The lobster bisque was full of meaty pieces of lobster, and the steak was superb! If... More

Went for my birthday. We had gone before and I liked the food & service. The atmosphere is moderate and I do not like energetic so that I cannot hear who I am with for the evening.

The Capital Grille does not disappoint! My husband and I went for dinner to celebrate my birthday...they had the table decorated, a card, and every person that came to the table wished me a happy birthday! The lobster & crab cakes are a MUST if you even slightly like seafood. My husband had a steak the size of my head... More

We decided to treat ourselves to a special meal, and we picked the perfect place! The Capital Grille specializes in aged beef. My husband, surprisingly, chose the Gorgonzola and Truffle Crusted Dry Aged Sirloin with Cabernet Reduction. (He would usually choose a hamburger over and sirloin steak!) The steak was expertly prepared, VERY tender, and perfectly complemented by the Cabernet... More

Service at this restaurant is phenomenal and the food is some of the best I have had anywhere. We started the meal with coffee and Frangelico topped with whipped cream to warm us from the cool weather outside. Portions are quite large particularly the side dishes are suitable for two. We split a green salad and each half was just... More
