Our preference over other major steak chains for great food and service. A chopped salad to die for, creative sides, and even half portions if you want.Warm ambiance, no rush and everyone is over-the-top attentive. Chef even sent personal note with our wrapped leftovers. Nice touch

My daughter was in town in May and it happened to be the same time as the "Speed Street" Festival. They block several of the main streets and fill with vendors. One of the streets included the one with the Capital Grille, which made it even better. We ate outside on their front patio and there was live music from... More

My 3 sisters, my daughter and I celebrated a 60th.birthday at The Capitol Grille. We all agreed that we had never had such royal treatment at a restaurant! Our waiter,(Jim), went overboard to make sure that everything was perfect! From the free glass of champagne to the base of roses, it could have not been more perfect! We all wanted... More

I ordered it rare and with nothing on it so as to not distract from the natural flavor. It arrived what appeared to be a reduction lightly drizzled on... More

It IS a little pricey, but worth the cost..depending on who you are with and what you are aiming for. The service was impeccable and the food excellent. I was lucky to be with 2 very attractive women and the waiter made pleasant conversation without oggling too much. IT might have explained the superlative service though :-)

I know a lot of people think that this is where business men eat but let me tell you, you need to go. The wait staff is very attentive, the food is excellent and their wine list has many affordable selections. I always love to get one of their fish entrees as it is so fresh and so well prepared....
