Literally the best steak I have ever had.

Our friends brought us here for my birthday and they hyped this place as one of the best restaurants in Minneapolis, hands down. With those impossible expectations to live up to, we were STILL completely blown away. This restaurant is in a league of it's own, starting with the free Valet parking... read more

We walked to the Capital Grille from our hotel because of Trip Advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. The Lobster Bisque was a great beginning. New York strip with bone-in. Wow! Side dish of Creamed Spinach (Trust me...It's worth it!) We tried the coconut pie & Cheesecake. Go for the Cheesecake! Great atmosphere & great service!

My parents came to town to visit and arrived later than expected. We canceled our reservation in the Warehouse District and decided to walk around the Nicollet Mall area looking for dinner options and stumbled upon the Capital Grille. We were seated immediately and greeted by our waiter, Todd. We ordered the seafood platter as an appetizer. Then we ordered... More

The Capital Grille really does it right. Excellent food is served in dignified surroundings by a serving team that knows exactly what to do at each part of the dining experience. It starts with white table cloths and uniformed personnel. Our bowl of bread arrived shortly after we were seated, and the cocktails were not far behind. We could relax... More

The service here is great and of course since it's a steak house, the steaks are also amazing. Great spot to eat before going to a show at the State or Orpheum.

If a great steak is what you're looking for this is the restaurant for you. Of course, other choices are available as well. Service is always top notch. The wait staff knows the menu well. I usually choose the filet which is perfectly cooked. Parking is attached for your convenience as well as valet.

I have been to the Capital Grille several times and have resigned myself to only sitting in the bar area to eat. I appreciate the less formal atmosphere and the overall "vibe". My daughter and I went there on a Friday evening (about 6:30ish) and, of course, sat at the bar for a light bite and glass of wine before... More

Came in for restaurant week and had a wonderful meal. We added the crab cakes appetizer and it was very good. For the restaurant week, I had the Caesar salad to start and the kona crusted ny strip. Steak was surprisingly large for restaurant week and also tasted good but nothing too special. My wife had the filet and I... More
