Excellent lunch, great staff!

It's been months since I visited this restaurant and I suggested it to friends and i was delighted once again with the service, the food and the atmosphere.

As a lover of sophisticated, upscale dining. Willing to pay the price to have the experience desired, as a couple, we came to celebrate a birthday. Coming in, outside the front door is crowded with people dressed like they are going to a county fair, glaring at my partner and I who are wearing dinner jackets like they had never... More

This is certainly a fine dining restaurant. I was here for lunch and the food was excellently prepared and served. I think it is a bit pricey for lunch but it really is an excellent meal. I usually have one of their salads for lunch when I go. Enjoy

Our family had a reservation for 9 to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. They put a bit of confetti around his spot and surprised him with an assortment tray for dessert. All of our meals were fabulous. The truffle fries were heavenly, as were the citrus glazed salmon and green beans. When we have a special occasion to celebrate or... More

Besides Berns and Mise en Place, The Capital Grille is a must-visit restaurant if you're looking for fine dining in the Tampa bay area. I had the pleasure of dining there again today, and the food and service were exceptional as always! During my last two visits there, I had steak (last visit) and salmon today- I figured I would...

Wow! One of my favorite restaurants. If you do not mind where you sit, you can often be brought to a table quickly even on a weekend night. If you have a seating preference, a call ahead is helpful to avoid a wait. The 2 lb steamed lobster is the best I've ever had (I do not think this shows... More

If you are looking for consistently good food and attentive service you will like Capital Grill. I also happen to be among a small number of individuals who like calves liver. Capital Grill is one of the few restaurants where you can make a special request (the day before) and have it saved to you. Of course they are known... More

The ambiance and service were both wonderful! The bartender truly knew his craft, as the cocktails were perfect. Overall, the meal was very good. Unfortunately, about half way through my Lobster bisque, I found a hair. The server quickly removed the dish and offered to bring me another serving (I declined). The GM also came over to apologize. I didn't... More

The Capital Grille at Tampa International Mall was absolutely wonderful. Steaks were perfectly prepared. Sides were flavorful and large enough to share. Atmosphere perfect to seem very private while In a room full of people. Service was delightful. Exactly what you would want for a celebration. Can't wait to return.
