We recently decided to try out the Capital Grille in downtown Minneapolis for a special treat. Valet parking made getting there a breeze, and inside we were greeted with warm, friendly staff that really went above and beyond to make our experience great. They went to a local convenience store to buy caffeine free diet coke for a member of... More

So, Capital Grille is a great place, our Wine was fantastic. The dinner bread was good as well. Next, my wife ordered Surf and Turf which was cooked perfectly and tasted excellent. Mine on the other hand was a tad over cooked and was caked in peppercorn, I usually like peppercorn but this was over the top. The waitress asked... More

Starting with the bad: (1):we tried to book a 7, 6, or 630 reservation for 4 people (calling 1 day before), but were told we could only book for 5 or 9. We reluctantly selected 5. Bad idea! We arrived at 4:50 by car. Door was locked!!! No valet parkers, but one of them came to door and said you... More

So, after about 2 years of booking reservations and canceling them at this restaurant because of the fear of the seeing the bill, my wife and i finally worked up the courage to make and keep a reservation. It definitely did not disappoint. One of the things that was most difficult for us was the fact that we knew it... More

We visited The Capital Grille with my daughter, who is vegetarian and my son-in-law. Honestly, our waiter, Tony, put the experience over the top although everything else was also exceptional. I asked if they had caffeine Diet Coke, but they did not. When the drinks were delivered Tony appeared with caffeine free diet coke! One of the staff ran down... More

The Capital Grille is located on the corner of 8th and Hennepin in Downtown Minneapolis. This restaurant is part of a high end steak restaurant chain and there are about 50 locations in 20 states. Don’t’ worry about parking as there is a surface parking lot nearby on 7th and Hennepin (plus a bunch of other downtown ramps). The décor... More

This is a lovely steak house with great food. It is pricey, so one I would consider again for a special occasion, but the stead was fantastic! The lobster mac and cheese side was delicious too!

We went to the Capital Grille to celebrate our anniversary and my husband's birthday. From the moment we entered the restaurant, we were treated as if we were their only customers. The service was unbelievable. They had rose petals and confetti on our table, brought us an appetizer, finished off with desserts that were fabulous and all about presentation. The... More

We came here for dinner to celebrate my friend's bachelorette party. While it was a bit expensive, it was definitely worth the cost. The wine selection was great, and they even had a good selection of gluten free items for our friend with celiac disease. Everything we had was fantastic. My steak with onions and mushrooms was outstanding - one... More
