A 60th birthday to remember

The Capital Grill Kim Halloran, General Manager 4740 Jefferson Street KCMO, 64112 Dear Kim, Once again, hats off again to the entire Capital Grill Team! The one thing we all have learned from this slowly recovering economy, SERVICE IS KING and those fine dining establishments that haven’t made service their #1 top priority are long gone.

This was our first time at The Capital Grille and definitely won't be our last. Made reservations about 2-3 months ago since I figured it'd be hard to get reservations on Valentine's Day. This wasn't an actual V-Day occasion but an anniversary celebration to my/our marriage proposal seven years ago. Anyway, back to the review. Parking was a cinch, right... More

This is some of the best Calamari I have ever had. Great entrees, steaks, and more. My company takes us there for lunch over the holidays and over the years has prompted me to go there for special occasions with the wife and business luncheons.

Service was out of this world. Great recommendations and very attentive to every need. Filet, au gratin potatoes and green beans were cooked to perfection. Ambience was perfect. Expensive but worth every penny.

Every trip here is absolutely wonderful. The food comes out perfect, the cocktails are well made, and the service is top notch. After each meal here I find myself looking forward to the next visit and even with such built up expectations, I am never disappointed!

On my most recent trip to Capital Grille I had a filet that was cooked to perfection, tender and very flavorful. The mashed potatoes were divine. The calamari starter was one of the top three I've ever had in the world. The creme brûlée dessert was very good and I don't really care for creme brûlée on most occasions. Service... More

My wife and I was joined by family and friends for a great Salmon dinner during K.C.'s Restaurant Week. Everything was cooked and presented perfectly and the portions so large we had to leave some on our plate. The restaurant and staff is absolutely incredible. Our waitress Rosa was a fantastic server and met our every needs.
