If you are looking for a melt in your mouth steak, then this is the place. I have been to every chain and local steak house from the bottom on up to the top and this is by far the best! I suggest this place to everyone I know who is looking for a great steak (and seafood) place and... More

Capital Grille is one of my favorite restaurants. Went for the Restaurant Week menu last night and instead of regular sized portions at the discounted price the portions were smaller. This is the first time in many years that they have cut the portion size for the lower price. It's not as good of a deal. Our favorite server Dave... More

Okay, this restaurant is a chain but my experience is that the service, ambiance, decor and food go way beyond what any ordinary chain will provide. Everything about this dining experience was top-notch--and we dined here during Restaurant Week yet there was absolutely nothing scrimped or "dumbed down" except a there was a lower price point! Everything we ordered was... More

On our last day in Minneapolis, we were looking for somewhere to have a leisurely lunch before heading out to the airport. Staying in downtown, this restaurant is a good option. They open for lunch and provide a special lunchtime menu which offers great value. Staff were very friendly and the service was excellent. I had the lobster/crab burger with... More

The reviews left me with high expectations, but the service was terrible and the food was short of spectacular.

We hadn't stopped in here for a while given the number of newer places opening and closer to home, but we decided to come back after a 2 year hiatus. It was worth it. Service was very professional, responsive and friendly. Every dish was excellent--lobster pop overs, special Brussels sprout salad, lobster bisque, filet and hash browns. Our fabulous waiter... More

For a birthday celebration, three of us gals took light rail downtown from our sleepy hamlet, St. Paul. While walking, we checked posted menus and the lobster rolls at Grille pulled us in. We were treated like royalty. By everyone. The lobster rolls and watermelon salad were perfect. And beautiful. Thank you Dave W., for making our celebration so much... More

We had lunch at the Capital just recently. Great service. I had aset lunch with a wonderful watermelon salad and the lobsterroll (a touch too much of pernod). My wife had the beef. A great lunch.

I entertained a few clients that had made the trip into town. We started with drinks and a couple crab cake appetizers which were very good. Unfortunately, my meal was less than stellar. Now, I know when visiting some smaller upscale steak restaurants, ordering a medium well steak gets you a look of distaste and a overdone dry steak. I... More
