I love going here with the excellent service and best cuts of meat and fish. Sorry but I don't eat red meat anymore. I was torn between the salmon or the sushi grade yellow fin tuna. I ordered the salmon but they were out so tuna it was. One of the specials was an arugula salad which I was hoping... More

Before I begin my remarks, keep in mind that we had dinner at this Capital Grille on Father's Day, which is not a good idea as the restaurant was overwhelmed with the volume of diners. I did not follow my advice to avoid eating out on important holidays. There were numerous large tables, which took up a great deal of... More

Ordered lobster bisque with had delicious succulent lobster. The wedge salad with bacon and blue cheese was very good. The chopped salad was also very good. The halibut had mini potatoes, pieces of corn and artichokes. It was tender and flavorful. The porter house steak was also tender and buttery. The creamed spinach was excellent. For dessert we ordered coconut... More

Just had dinner all by myself at the Capital Grille. The people were so welcoming and friendly beyond call of duty. When i finally made a choice of Chilean sea bass, it was a delight. The quality and quantity proved good value for money.

We were very impressed this time by our reception and the service. They were very friendly, responsive and receptive. The manager even stopped by our table to greet us. We came for lunch to have one of the value plates and we were not disappointed. My wife and I both had the Lobster Roll. She had the salad side and... More

This is the third of the Capital Grille chain of restaurants which we have had the good chance to visit. We were 6 and we notified the restaurant in advance of the imminent birthday of one of the party. So they put us in a separate small room, printed up a special version of the menu (Same selecion on it)... More

I have eaten here twice in the last six months. The first time in November was very good - the second time in April was good but not great and I certainly expected better given my first visit. Several of our party thought perhaps they had lowered the quality of their meat or changed their aging or seasoning. Shrimp cocktail... More

If you are looking for "Old School" service in a high profile restaurant, this is your place. Nostalgic decor with clientele from 20 somethings to business suits. Ala carte menu and a bit pricey but the steaks are awesome and the sides delicious. Friendly staff and attentive servers will make this a top ten meal that you will soon not... More

Delicious steak - large portions, perfect taste, and very tender. In addition, rose petals are placed at your table to celebrate your anniversary. Alternatively, confetti is placed to celebrate birthdays. Desserts were, of course, equal in quality and quantity to the main courses. It made for a very memorable evening. Be sure to ask for a photo to be taken.... More

Had dinner this evening...party of five. Every meal was perfect. We called ahead because we had a fussy eater and they told us they would accomodate him and they did. He ordered plain mac & cheese...and the whole table shared it was so delicious. Sean Goodwin was our waiter and we couldn't have asked for better service. He made great... More
