Great Steak. What I liked . . . Kona Steak - not a lot places offer a unique steak that is covered with Kona coffee. This is an excellent steak Lobster Mac & Cheese - do I really have to comment or explain. They have great lunch/bar menu specials that offer steak sandwiches or the like. Make sure you valet...

I have been a patron of capital grille since not long after it opened at International Plaza having eaten there a few dozen times with friends and family. On the last 3 visits, the wait staff was pleasant enough but the food (steak and sides) arrived luke warm or downright cold. This occurred even after telling the waiter of the... More

The steaks are good at Capital Grille. The atmosphere is a little stuffy. Good place for an early business dinner, not the best place for a special occasion. Other steak houses are better for the price.

My friend and I ate here and it was really good! Great variety of drinks - delicious mochatini, some type of margarita and another drink which I fail to remember. To eat, I had shrimp and crab rolls - not bad, the sauce really made the dish though. Lobster - pretty good. Crab cake appetizer - not as good as... More

We are "very fortunate" to be able to afford being selective where we eat... We decided to have lunch at Capital Grille before shopping at the Int'l Plaza. Unfortunately, the food quality was just average but the service was outstanding (very nice atmosphere). Overall, not worth the stop ($$$ lunch for a $ meal). We will not return.

Live in Lady Lake but went to Tampa for a hockey game, stayed the night, and went to the International Plaza and Capital Grille on a Wednesday. Had 5:30pm reservations and were greatly graciously and seated promptly. Can not remember our servers name but she was wonderful. Lobster bisque and a casear salad for an appetizer. Had a nice bottle... More

We had no plans on which restaurant to choose at International Mall, but decided to use valet parking since it was pouring rain. They told us if we ate at the Capital Grille, our parking would be free, so we decided to give it a try. Initially, we thought it may be too upscale for a large group of wet... More

I took my mom here for her first time for lunch on Mother's Day. The food was great and the service was excellent. It's well-worth the price. My mom loved everything about it.

As far as high end steak houses go, Capital Grille would not be the one I would choose personally to go to. After having been to all that Tampa has to offer many times I like the others around town much better. The atmosphere is certainly nice and it does have that steakhouse supper club feel to it. It is... More

I have eaten here for lunch and dinner several times. Never have I had a bad meal or a bad experience with the food or the wait staff. This is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a great dining experience with all the bells, & whistles. Food, atmosphere, wine & good company (you have to bring that along)
