I met friends here for lunch and we all had fabulous meals. Our server was wonderful and even when we lingered on to chat after eating it wasn't a problem at all.

Let me first say that from the second we walked in the door until we left, the experience was absolutely perfect. Perfection comes at a high price however and thankfully we were with good friends who picked up the check. Three of us had steak, all different cuts, all excellent. I had scallops which were also perfect. The place is... More

My family took me out for my 47th birthday dinner to Capital Grille. This was my first experience. For the price, we expected all courses to be "spot on". They were not. Although our server, Toby, was exceptional; the calamari was over cooked and the wedge salad was not cold and was not served on a cold plate. At $100... More

On an extremely busy Friday night, we were able to snatch outdoor seating and have a fabulous dinner at the same time. Took them a while to get the heaters going but we were comfortable and definitely full after our awesome meal! This is our second time here and it doesn't disappoint.

We always go to The Capital Grille either for special occasions or for great steaks. We went this time to celebrate a birthday and our anniversary. We were treated royally. Not only was the service exceptional, but the steaks were perfectly cooked and tasted great. I highly recommend The Capital Grille.

Capital Grille is always good. I had a bone in filet with gorgonzola and truffle crust. Excellent. The lobster mac and cheese is always great. it's very very rich. Also had Brussels sprouts with bacon and they were done perfectly. Wedge salad is good but definitely the weakest link in an otherwise really good meal. Service is always good at... More

My husband and I went here for a date night last night. Now let me first say that we do not care about price when it comes to good food. We have spent over 400.00 on a meal for the two of us and not thought twice about price when the food is good. We started by having two stoli... More
