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.

A visit to Kansas City is not complete without dinner at Capital Grille. We have never been disappointed in our menu selections but we make sure to ask that Eric Spoon be our waiter because he is so knowledgeable about not only the entrees but also their drink selections.

My lady friend and I usually sit at the bar. At the capital it was day time just after lunch. Got the lollipop lamp and a salad. Both were perfect and the drinks were just as good and generous pours. Had a blast.

Overall food and service was spectacular. The only thing we would have changed was the loud mouth at the table next to us using the "F" word far too often for my taste. I was just about ready to call the manager. This was the only negative to our dining experience.

We have been to the Capital Grille a few times. We went again this year for our wedding anniversary. We were, overall, disappointed in our meal. I got lobster, it was ok. Not bad but was a little overcooked. My husband had the porterhouse steak and it was just ok. He felt the flavor wasn't as good as it's been... More

Business dinner in the private room was great. Call ahead and ask what is available off menu. We had great Tomahawk steaks, but what stood above the food was the service.

I thought it was okay, not the best, or worst. The steak that I had here had a bit more fat than I thought it should and was overlooked. Wait staff was very pleasant and it was a good atmosphere.

"You get what you pay for" says the old adage. Certainly, a visit to The Capital Grille can set you back more than a few dollars, but the food, service and ambience make dining there worth every single penny. Well-crafted cocktails, succulent steaks, tempting sides and decadent desserts await in the most elegant of dining rooms. Service is simply brilliant... More

My husband made reservations at the Capital Grille for my 30th Birthday! When we arrived, they had decorated the table in sparkly confetti with "Happy 30th Birthday" written in confetti and had made a special "Happy Birthday" menu for me (they let me keep it)! Our server Jo Ellen was fabulous, she brought us complementary champagne and arranged a special... More

In town for the World Series and we decided to try it our first night in town. Great place, fantastic food and excellent service. You must start with the Grand plateau, but beware, only if it's a big party because it is a big plate and then follow with a good piece of meat, any of them will do at... More
