Our neighbor hood Restaurant

Since we live in Walking distance of this great restaurant it is always our first choice to enjoy a romantic Dinner for two or entertain guests; Best Lobster Bisque ( with lots of chunks of Lobster) topped up with Sherry and a Ribeye Steak - charred M or MR - quick efficient service is the standard

I have eaten at this restaurant more than a dozen times and have never been disappointed. In my opinion they serve the best steaks! I am a creature of habit and always have the kona coffee encrusted encrusted sirloin. I recently learned that they will kona encrust any steak. I think that capital Grill has the best trained waiters and... More

The aged NY strip sirloin steak was amazing as were the mashed potatoes and crème brulee. Actually crème brulee was best I have ever had. Brian, our server was excellent - very good at humoring my husband who was trying to be funny!! Went for restaurant week - well worth it.

We come here a few times a month. The food is always superb and the service has been excellent. It does feel a bit dark, and occasionally it can be noisy but that doesn't interfere with our having a good time and a good meal.

There is nothing like a great steakhouse on occasion! From the moment you drive up to the valet until the time you leave the service is wonderful. Everyone is friendly and willing to do what it takes to make your experience unforgettable! Our server, Tracy, was terrific. Our drinks, dinners and desserts were served promptly (not to fast as we... More

Always good and always consistent. I know it's a steakhouse, but if they have the half chicken on the menu get it and share a steak with a friend.

Sure, it's great to go out for dinner however, why spend an over-inflated amount of money on a steak that you can eat at home? The Capital Grille is an above average place to dine however make going out an "event". The Capital, as other famous upscale type steak restaurants is a place for the suited businessman who oftentimes pulls... More

This Capital Grille was perfect. We had a great family dinner before a big BC game. We're glad we picked the Capital Grille. The martinis were crisp and flavorful. The appetizers were fantastic and good for sharing. The filet mignon was mouth-watering, and the wine selection was ideal for our dinner. The valet parking makes it easy to enjoy a... More
