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.

At this price point I have expectations.......near perfection in every way. Therefore, this review is based on how Capital Grille compares to other restaurants at the same retail level. The service is as it should be, exceptional. Great steaks but the menu lacks a locally harvested seafood, which, in my opinion, is a must. I am not accustomed to going... More

My wife picked this restaurant for my birthday dinner and I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. From the minute we sat down we were greeted with great customer service. No less than 9 different waiters/waitresses/managers stopped at our table throughout our dinner to refill drinks, keep the table clear, and tell me happy birthday. The food definitely... More

My son and I had reservations to dine here this past Satruday evening on the occasion of my birthday. From the moment we were seated with the personalized birthday card and champagne we knew this would be a delightful evening. The service and meal were "over the top".

I always look at eating out as a trade off, bucks for satisfaction. It's almost an index. Capital Grille to me is one of those places, and frankly for what you spend I don't think it's worth it. Entrees are $29-50 and up per person. For that, you typically get just the entrée, with side dishes being optional. So, with... More
