This is a lovely steak house with great food. It is pricey, so one I would consider again for a special occasion, but the stead was fantastic! The lobster mac and cheese side was delicious too!

We went to the Capital Grille to celebrate our anniversary and my husband's birthday. From the moment we entered the restaurant, we were treated as if we were their only customers. The service was unbelievable. They had rose petals and confetti on our table, brought us an appetizer, finished off with desserts that were fabulous and all about presentation. The... More

We came here for dinner to celebrate my friend's bachelorette party. While it was a bit expensive, it was definitely worth the cost. The wine selection was great, and they even had a good selection of gluten free items for our friend with celiac disease. Everything we had was fantastic. My steak with onions and mushrooms was outstanding - one... More

Went here for my boyfriends birthday, the food was amazing. The waiter we had (Dave) was informative and attentive. It's not cheap but worth every penny.

Dined here for our Anniversary before The Book of Mormon at the Orpheum. Reservations were very easy thru Open Table and we wanted the earliest seating to enjoy our dinner and not feel rushed. The location is perfect and so close to the theaters on Heppin and many great hotels. We loved the wedge salad, the special Brussels sprouts salad... More

Hosted a business dinner here and once again totally impressed everyone. We had designed a menu ahead of time and it was a total hit. They even accommodated a last minute change as we had a vegetarian in our group. The wait staff was spot on! Couldn't have gone any better!

This is an expensive steakhouse offering a first rate experience. The food was terrific: I especially recommend the bone-in filet, the au gratin potatoes and the hazelnut cake dessert. Our server, Lauren, was friendly, helpful and attentive. I would certainly return.

I have a lot of business dinners in Minneapolis and have been to all of the steak places many times. The one I gravitate to the most is the Capital Grille. It has amazing steaks, amazing salads, amazing sides. The service is incredible. At a recent dinner, the server inadvertently spilled vinegar on a colleague's new purse. Management immediately apologized... More

I like the one in Chicago so much more. Better quality everything. The service was attentive here though really disappointing. They kept refilling the wine and opening new bottles without asking us if we wanted more wine. At the end of the night I found an almost entirely full bottle of a $70 white wine sitting in a cooler next... More
