Good, quick before the theater spot.

Literally next to the State Theater. We stopped in for some quick apps before a 6:30 show on a Sunday evening. They have about six little tables set up in the bar area, "reserved" for diners. Quite lovely, white linen and intimate - two people could sit side by side comfortably on a banquette... read more

Tony is a great server. He remembers our names each time we return. The service is always outstanding. The food is also noteworthy. I have never had a bad meal at Capital Grille.

We enjoyed this place. The food is very pricey and everything is ordered ala carte but that is probably the norm for this area and venue. Our party ordered a wide variety of entrees and everyone said there dish was outstanding. The portions were generous. I had the sea bass and it was also outstanding. You can't go wrong here... More

It is a high quality and pricy steakhouse. The steaks are done very well and the service is excellent. The cuisine is steakhouse and there isn't anything creative. The cows have done the work here. The task is not to mess up on the top notch ingredients. They do that well. There is a lot of waste with huge portions... More

Spent Mother's Day at The Capital Grille and could not have been happier (or, more full)! While my spouse and I selected from the fixed menu, my kids were able to enjoy more youth-friendly selections from a very reasonably-priced menu. All of us enjoyed a three course meal. My filet mignon was cooked perfectly (best steak I've had in a... More

I was in town for a conference. My associate really wanted lobster and I felt more like a steak. We decided to go to Capital Grille because they listed lobster on their menu. When we asked our waiter he said that they only had 1lb lobsters that night. He returned and we were ready to order and he informed us... More

I have dined at the Capital Grille for years. What keeps me coming back is the great service at the bar, and the wonderful Calamari. I have enjoyed dinners here as well, but the Pan-Fried Calamari with Hot Cherry Peppers is what I crave, along with the house made potato chips which are a crispy golden brown. Of course, I... More

two of us ordered steak dinners. Mine was a strip steak, I ordered med rare. The very middle of steak was med rare, but both sides, Almost 2/3 of the steak, was over cooked, like medium or medium well. My waiter was very apologetic and quickly re-ordered my steak. 5 min la Ted I was served a perfect steak, very... More

This has excellent steak but food is more a variety where steak are fancy prepared. and veggie. We usually have oscar steak with crab (extra crab legs) and I get the oscar with lobster tail. My husband like the steak with crab better than lobster. I like both. I love their bread. I can just inhale them. They are so... More

Not great, over rated, with poor service and lack luster food. Better off going to Mannys. Don't try the specials, they are over priced and a bit of an overstatement in the quality
