Bustling atmosphere and great food makes for a fun evening. The bar is busy and the restaurant is in the middle of a great city.

I am a very regular patron of the Capital Grille in Baltimore and DC and this was my first visit to the Capital Grille in Pittsburgh. Of course I was struck by the familiar décor, fixtures, paintings and bronzes. On a very bust Saturday night we were seated quickly and met in a very timely manner by a very professional... More

Food and service was great at Captial Grille. Very knowledgable and friendly staff. Steaks was cooked perfectly. French Onion soup was big enough to feed a family. Will definitely come back next time I am in town.

Enjoyed dining here recently. Nice, quiet atmosphere. If you do not see something on the menu that you want, ask they are very accomodating. I wanted a small filet (10oz was on the menu) and they were happy to give me an 8 oz. Better. Enjoyed all the courses. Both the waitress and her assistant were wonderful. Would return.

A meeting can be a meeting, but when you have a lunch like this served at this restaurant you can't forget about neither. From when I opened the door and was warmly greeted and shown to our table, the next person from the staff was attentive in providing our various beverages. The Lobster Bisque and Clam Chowder were both outstanding... More

Not a huge variety of food on the menu, definitely more of a bar - very small wine selection. Small restaurant with good service. Good prices too!

We go out to dinner once a month with my wife's cousin. This dinner is one of the best pittsburgh restaurants. I never heard of a bone in filet. I didn't need a knife. This place really makes the best french onion soup. It was the best meal I have had it Pittsburgh. Check my reviews I eat out in... More
