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.

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.

My husband's company held it's third annual party at The Capital and it did not disappoint. We used one of the private rooms and loved the experience. We could not ask for any better service. Our main server was Eric Spoon and the others were Lauren and Corey plus several that helped orchestrate the meal. All servers were terrific and... More

Superlatives start sounding repetitive when describing the food, service and atmosphere. Even though it was packed for restaurant week, we were never hurried or lacking attention from our waitstaff. Ask for Bill. We had 3 different type of steaks, all done to perfection. I have never seen a lobster receive such a beautiful and creative presentation. Everything from the warm... More

Two staples for me- the lamb lollipops and the house chopped herb salad- make sure to ask for Gorgonzola! Jenny the bar tender is friendly and efficient. Chef Matt visited us last time to ensure the food was to our satisfaction, he was very courteous and accommodating.

A friend & I decided to splurge on New Year's Day and dine at Capital Grill. This restaurant never disappoints! From how perfectly done the steaks are to the amazing sides, the food is what brings us back again and again. Our favorite things on the menu are the filet, filet oscar, mashed potatoes, creamed spinach and the lobster mac... More

We tried several of their dishes and fail to mention one that did not meet, if not exceed, our expectations. I definitely recommend their dry-aged steaks above all else because the crust was so flavorful while the inside remained incredibly juicy. I'd also like to commend this restaurant for their excellent service. They portioned out orders according to who was... More

During a recent visit to the Plaza in KC, we decided to drop in and try this well reviewed eatery. Even without a reservation, the hostess was able to seat us almost immediately (off to a lucky start). Our waiter (Zach) came over immediately and did a fantastic job recommending various dishes, helped to select a nice glass of wine... More

We had a gift certificate and came here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. There was a long stemmed rose and heart shaped confetti on our table when we arrived. This is definitely a steak restaurant with just a couple of seafood dishes offered. It was kind of hard to pick which kind of steak to order. I selected a bone... More
