There are not too many interesting restaurants in the business district of Nashville but this is a good choice. A robust selection of traditional dishes and a good list of wines makes for a nice evening. Fast, efficient and very good service. Good for business dinners.

Meeting my cousins in Nashville this past weekend I wanted to treat them to the perfect dinner (they drove 8 hours from IN). I searched through restaurants in Nashville and the Capitol Grille caught my eye. As soon as we arrived, I knew it was the best, possible choice! The atmosphere was beautiful and classy, the staff incredibly kind and... More

First the setting: both the bar and the restaurant are fabulous rooms with vaulted ceilings, wood panelling and classic decor. Second the food: best hanger steak I'e ever tasted, superb quail, interesting and unusual vegetables; all locally sourced. Third the service: discreet yet attentive. There was a mistake in the meals and the smooth recovery of the mistake was perfect:... More

This is one of the most beautiful restaurants I have had the pleasure of dining in. My brunch experience this morning was very good. The ham and brie omelet with roasted potatoes was first rate. Service was very good as were the prices. The bar/lounge is also lovely and very popular. I look forward to a return visit.

We were totally disappointed with this restaurant. The service was poor. We sat there with nothing for 30 minutes.. This might not be long for “dining”. But, it was a total lack of attention to us being in their restaurant. The quality of the cooking was very substandard (except for the meat, itself, which they farm raised). The vegetables were...

Impeccable service from the wait staff. Perfect flavors. Complex and imaginative while also delicious. Best food in Nashville. GO.

I cannot believe the terrible experience at Capitol Grille. I purchased a gift certificate for an employee to propose marriage to his girlfriend. I made the reservation and expressed my concerns for a perfect night. The meal was ok - the service was reportedly ok - but what transpired when the check was paid was horrible. The waiter chased my... More

We had dinner here the first night, and the service and menu selections were top notch. The kitchen uses organic produce and livestock from a farm owned by the hotel. Everything was so fresh and tasty. The wine list is also excellent. Our favorite meal, however, was the breakfast that we were able to add to our room for $20.... More
