Went to dinner at Capital with a group of colleagues after a long day of business meetings, and as always the food and service were impressive. The steaks that ordered were cooked to perfection and the chocolate espresso cake was definitely one of the best I've ever had.

WOW!! This is hands down one of the best restaurant meals I've had in recent years. Exceptional service from the moment I stepped through the door to the moment I left. My visit started with manager Jim bringing me a mug filled with hot water which I wrapped my freezing cold hands around to warm. My lunch of melt in... More

I ate here for dinner and ordered the halibut. Pause in silence to remember how wonderful the quality of the food is here. The food portions are not large but they are appropriate. Definetly the best restaurant for food quality and service in this city. Great for those of us who are spoiled having experienced fine dining experiences in New... More

I can't say enough how amazing the service was at the Capital Grille! The food was excellent, but our server, Lynn, made it a memorable event. It was our 20th wedding anniversary, and I let them know that when I made the reservation. They walked us to a cozy table for two that had hearts scattered on the table. They... More

We literally had the best anniversary dinner here last fall. You must start with the calamari for an appetizer; the peppers add a flavor that makes all other orders of calamari since pale in comparison. Also highly recommend the Lobster Mac n Chz, Filet, and a bottle of Sterling. :) Side note and extra kudos for accommodating: Long story short... More

We had a terrific late meal on the Thursday (10-23-14) of Restaurant Week. We had reservations for 10 pm and had to wait awhile in the bar. The restaurant and the bar were absolutely JAMMED. We managed to get two bar stools and immediately we had wonderful straight-up Stoli martinis with olives. We waited for quite awhile after our reservation,... More

We celebrated a wedding anniversary at the Capital Grille and couldn't have been more pleased. I made our reservation through their website. I indicated in the note section that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, a note that didn't go unnoticed. When we arrived, we were seated at a very nice booth, decorated with little hearts on the table cloth.... More

Went there for a birthday party, the place is really good looking and fancy, a bit dark but make it intimate. The good was great, good portions and really tasty, came also quite fast. Drinks also were well served. Cakes at the end was a very nice surprise and ordered a second piece to bring home.

Capital Grille is high quality food and service. It's fun to watch the staff work the room like a well tuned orchestra. Everyone is welcome, and everyone is treated with equal respect and attention. Been coming here for years (family, business, couples night) and have left super happy every time. Wonderful wine cellar, and the bar in the front of... More
