I have been to this Capital Grille once before for dinner, and found the food, décor, and service to be the high quality I expect from Capital Grille restaurants.

Relatively good fare and decent steaks and chops. One of our guests had a wonderful piece of salmon. I had great lamb chops.

I made the reservation online and contacted the restaurant to request if they would serve shucked oysters at lunch which they totally agreed to do for me. This was a business meeting, I requested a quiet table which again they obliged with right away. both food and service was exceptional. It seems like this place takes client satisfaction seriously and... More

A leisurely pleasant restaurant on the expensive side but well worth it even to one who does not like to go out to expensive restaurants!

The waiter brought us sea bass instead of sea scallops. It messed up the timing of dinner. He tried to make up to us with a glass of champagne it didn't work. My bone in rib eye was under cooked I ordered med got raw. The meat was thin cut with an excess of fat. Once we got the sea... More

The Capital Grille is where you go when you want the best steak dinner with the best service. The food is outstanding. All cuts of meat are prepared perfectly and are delicious. But what really makes this a dining experience to remember is the quality of service. Everyone from who works there is 100% focused on making you feel valued... More

If someone told me that seventeen people were seated at a table on a packed night with one waitress...and everyone's appetizers, salads, entrees and drinks came promptly and all the steaks were cooked perfectly and were delicious I would say they were crazy. This place would prove me wrong because that's exactly what I experienced last night when I celebrated... More

A beautiful old building, well-appointed interior, and a great waiter. My wife's lunch choice was scallops. I had a bite, and it was excellent. I chose the sirloin hash, which wasn't as good. It reminded me of a meal of leftovers. The dessert, creme brulee, made up for that, along with coffee and espresso. I will certainly come back to... More
