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.

Amazing food and over the top service.

They consistently make it so good to keep their spot in my top 5. You have to try their Lobster Mac and Cheese.

Have been to several Capital Grills and would have expected more from this one based on the high end nearby shopping. Was dark inside, not a very soficsicated knowledge of the wine list, and dark without any windows, with less than cozy lighting. Was ok for business, but would not likely come back.

The food here is great, but the service is even better. It may be the best service that I have ever received at a restaurant. The staff is extremely attentive, and they truly go the extra mile for their customers. My steak was cooked perfectly, and the sides were just delicious. The Lobster Mac N' Cheese and the potatoes were... More

Had not been to Capital Grill in KC, but they are known for their steaks and this visit did not disappoint. Had a great waiter (Hunter) who was very knowledgeable. Only thing was that the aspargus ordered as a side dish was tough and felt old.

This place is insanely amazing. The staff is professional and friendly. We were celebrating my wife's birthday. The table was tasteful decorated and everyone that came to the table wished her a happy birthday. The food was out of this world. The Delmonico with 15 year aged balsamic was perfect, the wild mushrooms were the best I've had, and the... More

Place was full even at 5:30 - guess full of local after-work people. All seemed well dressed. Party of 4 was shown in fairly quickly as we were 10 minutes late - thanks to driver who knew the way. LOL Waiter missed our real wants for dinner other than just steak. Of course steak is what this place is known... More

My husband and I dined here for dinner last week after purchasing our first home. We were tired and pretty rugged looking after a couple days of intense house-hunting and negotiations. But not one of the staff blinked an eye. We felt like royalty from the impeccable service. Our food was delicious, but very pricey ($220 with drinks, dessert and... More

We took our grandson to this restaurant to celebrate his 18th birthday. This was a bit more expensive than we spend at a restaurant. Their reputation for excellent service and excellent food did not leave us disappointed. What really made me a fan was the attention EVERYONE on the staff gave to our grandson. There was not a single person... More

Capital Grille and Bristol's are two of my favorite...( I can't say which one I like better because both are soooo good) Capital Grille goes above and beyond in the quality of the food and the service...Stephen (Red hair) is unbelievable!!!
