At first, my breath was sucked away...

So, I was flying solo as the last of the "friends" left in Kansas City for the weekend. Everyone had driven or flown off and my flight was not until morning. I didn't want to have to walk the distance back to my hotel alone so I selected Capital Grille because it was next to a parking garage in... read more

On a recent visit to KC we enjoyed a delicious dinner. We shared the calamari appetizer (perfectly cooked, tender crisp and light). My companion enjoyed vodka that had been steeped ina pineapple for a week...smooth and enjoyable. I thoroughy enjoyed a chardonnay that was featured that evening. It was part of a 3-wine offering, however by taking medication, I am... More

This place never disappoints! With all the steakhouses in KC, restaurants have to knock it out of the park to be on top. Capital Grille does just that. This is more than dinner, it's a dining experience. Waitstaff is super friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. Steaks are always cooked to perfection and the sides are just as tasty. Desserts are great... More

My wife and I visited the Capital Grille for our 25th wedding anniversary. This place was awesome. Our server was Terresa - she was knowledgeable about the products, offered advice to pairings of food with wine - basically, she knew her stuff. My wife had the "Big Pour" which was basically a flight of different types of wine. She also... More

We generally pick Capital Grille as our special occasion restaurant and didn't stray from this on this visit as we were celebrating our anniversary. In the past every bit of service went above and beyond. We didn't feel as if it did on this visit. Our table was decorated nicely. Our service was a bit fair and scripted. Our server... More

We celebrated one of our daughters birthday here last November; it's not the first time we've been to Capital Grill. We've had both salmon and steaks and all are always perfection. The service is impeccable and the atmosphere is very relaxing. It's a great place to celebrate special events in your life. Some may find it a little pricey, but... More

The Capital Grille is the place to be... It has a warm welcoming bar area great place to meet for a business meeting and a cocktail. If the meeting goes into dinner you won't be disappointed. The steaks are 5 star the service is outstanding.

Open Table reservations led us to Cody's table. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and had a great sense of humor too. He was not afraid to give his opinions here and there when I asked. He suggested the GENEROUS POUR honoring female vinters, vineyard owners, and sponsors. It was a fun way to try 8 different wines (paired with our meal).The... More

we love going here when we are prepared to spend a ton, KC doesn't have a lot of really good options, so this is the place- especially for the espresso cake. i am always let down by the wine list, but for the midwest it's ok, just would like nicer and more reasonably priced european options that go well with...
