We went here with friends for my wife's birthday. I go here regularly for work functions but it was the first time any of them had been to a Capital Grille. The atmosphere, service, and food is amazing(especially lobster mac and cheese) as you expect at any of the big steak houses. However they went over the top for her... More

Wonderful food, great wine, attentive staff. Only drawback is that it is EXPENSIVE. I found the interior to be a bit dark and dated, with animal heads and clocks from different timezones. Those might have been interesting 20 years ago, but not now.

The lobster macaroni... More

Prompt, friendly, personal service. Knowledgable staff. Great wine list. And, filet and lobster that melted in my mouth! Restaurant is well-staffed - very busy, but dining is not rushed. Lovely atmosphere, elegant yet relaxed.
