Description: In the heart of Country Club Plaza and the mind of the true steak aficionado. The “city of fountains” is overflowing with luck as it is also the city of our dry aged, hand cut beef. Come see why one Ingram’s critic wrote, “I was speechless.” Two new private dining rooms now give you a grand choice of five in which to be speechless yourself.

They had a special of lobster bisque that was fabulous; steaks were top notch and compable to other high end steak houses; overall was cheaper than I expected and when compared to similar restaurants I have eaten at in Vegas, San Antonio, etc.

Had lunch with work friends today and the food was excellent. Not only is this place consistent, but the preparation of all the meals was also excellent in every respect. I had the chopped salad with grilled shrimp and the salad was perfectly dressed and the shrimp grilled just enough to be firm but not dry and rubbery. Others had... More

CG is a very upscale steakhouse, and a chain, which I did realize until after we got there. Menu is weighted towards steaks, which are excellent. Our server was attentive and even crumbed the table (though a little late in the meal). The tablet wine and cocktail list was very 21st century and incredibly awkward to use, give me a... More

This is the place for a special date;) Everything was delicious and the service was terrific! We enjoyed soup and salad, in addition to the special of the evening Steak Oscar. Wonderful. Be sure to leave room for one of their heavenly desserts too! You won't be disappointed!

Capital Grille is our Go To for most every occasion...birthday, anniversary or just a night out for a good meal. We always have great service, food is always consistent and wonderfully prepared. You can't go wrong if you want a good steak, nice salad and warm atmosphere. Love Capital!

We grabbed a pre-Royals game due to having such great meal a few months earlier after a Chiefs game. Once again, this Capital Grille didn't disappoint. Having practically lived in NYC for years on expense account, I tried about every steakhouse possible. Time and again I left many of those establishments underwhelmed. Nothing tasted bad, but nothing was much better... More

If we want steak, in the KC Plaza, it is either Ruth Chris (which we have had two bad experiences with) or the Capital Grille. We have tried Plaza III and several others at the plaza (all not good), and it always come back to the Capital Grille. We ate there on 8 June, and it was wonderful. Great service,... More

The location is great - near the Intercontinental. They are friendly inside - lots of wood, leather and old boys club feel to it. Bar had the NHL game on and was packed. We sat in a separate dining area. Appys were seafood oriented and delicious. The main was MEAT/MEAT/Meat all around with a focus on the Tomahawk Ribeye. Oh... More

Celebrated an anniversary. I called and made reservations and told them we were celebrating. When we arrived our table was ready immediately. It had some special decoration on it. We were served complimentary champagne and told about specials. Our waiter, Stevie, was a true professional and treated us amazingly. The steak was phenomenal, as I had never had a dry... More

This is a nicer restaurant. Definitely expect to spend 30-50 on your meal. Steak is definitely worth it and you are definitely getting what you pay for. Excellent wine selection as well which is always a plus. Definitely recommend this place.
