Let me begin by telling you I have been to this Capital numerous times and they always deliver. This place is consistent, and the service is excellent. The bar area is the quintessential "men's club" atmosphere and the bartenders are some of the BEST in the business. I dropped in to me a colleague for drinks and we both enjoyed... More

The steaks were phenomenaland I ordered an extra helping of asparagus to go. When ordering most of it is... More

We came to this restaurant in the busy International Plaza shopping mall for an early dinner because we received a $100 gift card. After the bright, blinding sunlight outside, the interior was very dark until our eyes adjusted. There's a lot of wood, and the interior is darkly decorated. The atmosphere reminds me of an old gentlemen's club, with the... More

I took my wife to Capital Grille to celebrate her birthday and the restaurant setup a table just for us with a rose for my wife, a hand written note and decorated the table. They also gave us both free champagne. This was a great start to a really nice evening. We started off the night with the Calamari and... More

We had a great dinner during the Generous Pour event last weekend. Capital Grille has this even every July and it is a wonderful introduction to wines you would may not have access to otherwise. We enjoyed our enniversary dinner there and the service was excellent. The food is always outstanding, if a bit expensive. The steaks are unparalled. I... More

The service here is impeccable. The food is very good but I would not say that it's exceptional and warrants the price. I've been to other upscale steak restaurants that were just as good. Everything here is ala carte. I've actually have had better tasting steaks at much less expensive restaurant. This is a nice experience but not quite sure... More

We received a very short notice for a friend's birthday dinner party. Luckily, it was at The Capital Grill which made it a must-attend event. CG decorated the table and made the evening feel special. Eugene was our server and did an excellent job as he has in our other visits over the last year or so. My wife doesn't... More
