You probably should have a reservation to go here. It is that good. My husband picked this place to have dinner with other family members. I can't even begin to explain to you how good my dinner was.

Very nice place - excellent service - have an excellent filet mignon. Very good wine list - pricey, so know that before you go there. For one glass of wine, the filet (with no sides) and a caprese salad, it was about $80.

We visit PIT once a month and always bring our clients to the Capital Grille. The service is always excellent. The food, outside of one overcooked steak, is always top notch. The bone in filet is always a big hit!

Its a casual steakhouse atmosphere. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The food, well, lets just say it was the best I've ever had. The steaks are cooked to pure perfection and the fresh mozzarella makes everything better. The desserts are fabulous too. This is a great place for that special occasion! The décor was appropriate and not too... More

Capital Grille's chefs really know how to prepare and present a meal! Although, it can be pricey, they also have terrific lunches for under $20 that cannot be better. I have have never been disappointed in my food or service. The only reason that I don't give this restaurant five stars is due to the layout. I do not like... More

The Capital Grille is always a great place to go to for a special occasion. I can't say I have ever had a bad meal there. The steak is prepared just right and the sides are always delicious!

Went to the Capital Grille the week after Valentine's day to avoid the rush. We mentioned that to our server and he brought us a mini bottle of champagne to "Thank" us for not adding to the chaos! Service was excellent, and the food was good. Not "knock your socks off" amazing, but good!
