Delightful dirty martini with blue cheese olives? Check Delicious food? Check Great service? Check Not sure what else to say, other than, if you're in the mood for a top notch steak dinner experience, this is the place!

We eat here often and always have a good experience but today was something unique. Chef James Shields has been very accommodating with special requests. Today we requested seared foie gras and fried lobster tail. The foie gras came with a dried cherry sauce that was absolutely scrumptious and the fried lobster tail was out of this world. Crispy, moist... More

This is a well appointed very impressive restaurant. They have a terrific wine list and awesome appetizers. I had one of the best filets ever. The only suggestion I can offer is to make available at filet smaller than 10 ounces. I didn't want that much but if was so good I finished it.

My husband proposed to me at Capital Grille. The employees were so sweet, they really went out of their way to make this a special evening for us. Rose petals covered our table, champagne, it was the most romantic evening of my life! Bravo staff!

This was my first visit to Capital Grille, but won't be the last. The menu was extensive, as was the wine selection. The Filet Mignon was outstanding, and cooked Pittsburgh style, just as I requested. The accompaniments, including asparagus and lobster mac and cheese were out of this world. The desserts are outrageously good as well. The service makes the... More

We are not big on steak . Our friends that live in Tampa made reservation so we went with their choice. I have heard great reviews of Capital Grille in Miami, but we had never been to one. Without a doubt , a great steak house. First the restaurant is beautiful, dark wood, the decor is first rate. The food... More

After making reservations at Charley's for Feb 15, avoiding the Fri & Sat Valentine's crowd, we arrived a few minutes late and had tried calling a few times to inform them but they never answered. Arrived and the front area was packed. We were told despite having reservations the wait would be a guess of 30 min or more. We... More

My husband and I eat at the Capital Grille in Atlanta, Georgia and love it. When we were visiting Tampa my husband surprised me with reservations. Were were put in a room with just four tables which made it quiet and intimate. Our waiter was excellent and the food was UNFORGETTABLE. I am still dreaming about the bone in filet... More
