Rich mahogany, sumptuous leather and cool marble set the stage for incomparable dining in the Hennepin Theatre District. Just blocks from the Target Center, you’ll finddry aged beef that’s always right on the mark. No wonder Zagat Survey wrote, “awesome steaks served by the pros are the order of the day.”

By far the best steak house in the area is the Capital Grill. The service is without a doubt excellent, and for my money that is very important. The food is as good as it gets and the overall atmosphere is total elegance.

Great environment for biz meeting or small group - in the heart of downtown - dark wood/classic - good steaks - over-priced.
