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.

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

We recently dined here for a business dinner and had an excellent experience. The service was outstanding and my steak was one of the best that I've that had. While pricey, this restaurant is a great place for dinner.

I dined here as part of a business-oriented party of roughly 15. With that in mind, I can't comment on the price/value (I wasn't paying); however, my expereince was exceptional. From a logistics standpoint, we had a nice-sized private dining room and adquate wait staff. The team did a good job spacing the delivery of entrees and filling beverages, etc.,... More

We splurged on our last evening in Miami to dine at Capital Grille. The steaks were amazing! The portions were huge, next time we will share! The wait staff was friendly and prompt.
