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

Without his knowledge, I informed Capitol Grille that is was my boyfriend's birthday after he had made the reservations. The restaurant staff decorated the table and placed a hand-written birthday note from them on the table. The staff also fulfilled a very odd request - that if anyone on their wait staff spoke French that that person wait on our... More

This restaurant is located near the International Mall immediately south of Tampa airport. We made our reservation for four through Open Table for Easter Brunch and arrived on time. We were seated in a booth about two feet away from a table of 14 and right next to the children's end (8 children 6 adults). This has been the most... More

While shopping we decided to end the day with a good late lunch. Capital Grill was a great choice. The service was superb!! Our food was delicious. The soup was marvelous, my lobster crab burger was amazing, and my husband's lobster roll was perfect. It was a perfect lunch and so restful. Be aware, this is an expensive place and... More

I've been visiting Capital Grille around the country for several years and it has always been a favorite. It will probably continue to be but this visit was not the experience I have grown to expect and enjoy while dining at CG. The food was great, as usual, lamb rack for me, fish for my wife, nice appetizer and sides,... More

The food, service and atmosphere are outstanding. A little pricey but worth a visit when at international mall. We were shopping with our bride to be and they went way over board to make our lunch special!

High end steakhouse in a town lacking in dining options. Service, food and ambience as u would expect. It is of course quite expensive but in all respects consistent with the capital grille product. Overall, we got what we wanted and were pleased. The location in a shopping mall is actually a positive bc nice to stroll around afterword, have... More

The inside seating area is very cosy. The service is impeccable and the food is good. All that said I was left with a feeling of having paid a bit too much. I had a cup of clam chowder, the smallest steak they served (8 oz) with a side of mashed potatoes, a drink and a glass of wine and... More
