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

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
