Great ambiance, great service. Food was excellent as well( same aged meat in a thicker cut would have been juicier)the place was packed being a Saturday. But the service or the food did not falter. It was a two week late Mother's Day for us. Have no idea how the staff figured it out. We were exchanging gifts between us... More

It was a bittersweet Mother's Day dinner for me. My mother's CLL worsened, and my son ordered nothing but a coke. My mother in law had a filet. My husband had a Strip steak and I had the porterhouse. Our server Miguel said rare was a cool center, so I ordered medium rare, but it was a little overdone for... More

The first time I had dinner at the Capital Grille (about a year or so ago) I was thoroughly impressed. Nice ambiance (for a traditional steakhouse) , great service (not counting the hostess) and most importantly amazing steaks. The steaks (we had a Kona Crusted Dry Aged Sirloin, a Porcini Rubbed Delmonico with Balsamic and a Dry Aged Porterhouse Steak)... More

Walking up the stairs to the Hostess Station we were greeted by name and a Birthday Greeting was made Immediately to our daughter. Our table was ready and decorated with birthday (things on the table). Served with a Glass Champagne, the service begun. The waiter suggested... More

We have only been to one other Capital Grille and that was in Scottsdale, AZ. We had tickets to Guys and Dolls and decided that we would have our pre-theatre dinner there. We like to mix it up. Upon arrival, we notified our server that we were on a time crunch and he was very accommodating. We decided on a... More

Birthday dinner for husband. The staff did an excellent job of making my husband feel very special. The food was excellent, service was outstanding, and the complimentary dessert presentation was appreciated. We would return again.

Two couples came to experience their wagu burger special offered with a glass of red wine for a great deal. It did not disappoint......we were all impressed. The beef was incredibly flavorful and juicy, with wonderful gorgonzola on top truffle infused. Served with some of the best fries we've had in a long time. The service was extraordinary, she even...

From the warm and gracious "Happy Birthday!" from the lovely hostess, Jordyn, to the attentive and excellent service from our server, Ibere, who brought us complimentary flutes and Happy Birthday dessert, my husband enjoyed a lovely birthday. In between, we appreciated the dark woods and the lively room, in which the tables were spaced far apart enough to have a... More

I've eaten at several Capital Grille locations. This one continues to prove that Capital Grille is place for outstanding service and food. I enjoyed a delicious steak salad, lobster bisque and a killer cheese cake with fresh berries. The service and attention is top notch! I definitely be coming back :-)
