Description: It’s fitting that the Miami River’s mouth opens wide at this enticing spot. Incomparable steaks dry aged on the premises led Miami Zagat Survey to observe, “a session here closes the deal every time.” You’ll strike gold in the Financial District with any dry aged steak you choose. We’re close to the Performing Arts Center and the Port of Miami. And next to none in incredible foodand service.

Terrific restaurant to have a couple of drinks at the bar, or a great steak and wine for dinner. Although expensive, it's worth the trip tp indulge yourself at least once!

We had a great time here. I had never gone and was curious. The steaks are fantastic. The Delmonico was delicious. A little expensive but worth it.

On our first night and worse for wear after an nine hour flight we just visited this as it was the first restaurant we came across. What a gem. This is a must for special occasion dining. I had the salmon, it tasted amazing, my hubby and young son had the lamb chops which was ' the best they've ever... More

I honestly can say I have never had a bad meal at Capital. Service can be spotty, depends on which waiter you draw. Good value for the money. Love their steaks.

I had been to this restaurant a few years ago, it felt good when my good friend invited me for a belated birthday celebration. When we arrived (Friday, Jul 18th, 2014) we were immediately escorted to a room which during the day is used as a private party room which apparently on weekends is used as an overflow when the...

Service was excellent - nothing to complain about that. But, when we talk about a restaurant of the category of Capital Grille, they should have the responsibility to perform at a higher standard of excellency, at every level. Lamb Chops - excellent - double cut - $45 Cesar Salad - mediocre to say the least - $11 - unjustifiable Clam... More

Everyone can say what they want about how great this place is but in my opinion, it's not. To drive through the expressway to Downtown and to have the car valid in a underground parking lot to then go up the elevator and enter a dark restaurant is not worth the trip. The restaurant is covered with dark wood, dark... More

I've eaten here at least 6 times for lunch and dinner. Each and every time, the service has been incredible. Truly a classy place. The steaks are one of the best that I've ever had in Miami. It's pricey, but worth every penny.

Fathers' Day Eve dinner was out of this world. Started with sautéed calamari, followed by lobster bisque then outrageously good steaks with sides of roasted mushrooms and lobster mac and cheese. Each thing was great. The service was warm, friendly, helpful and very good. With after dinner drinks, I was surprised with a complimentary Fathers' Day dessert. Fantastic dinner with... More
