You need to know that you want to go there. The restaurant is in the basement of the Hermitage Hotel right next to TPAC and the Legislative Plaza. You would not be surprised to see Cary Grant or a group of politicians for lunch. The Oak Bar next door serves great wine, beer and drinks The service staff is very... More

Had an a-ok experience at the Capitol Grille - but wish I was a little more blown away, especially for the price. The service was a tad slow, with hardly anyone in the restaurant, but I think the waiter was trying to give us adequate time. But we weren't a fancy group and it didn't take long for us to... More

Great service, reasonably priced wine and quality food you can count on! We started with oysters and they were incredibly fresh! I had the scallops and they were melt in your mouth delicious.

If you go to this Capitol Grille expecting the usual excellence, you will be disappointed. Although the restaurant was empty, we waited 15 minutes for the host to get his act together to seat us. It was comical! The food was excellent but sloppily served. Although it is located next to the stunning Hermitage hotel, better go to Mortons down... More

The Capitol Grille is connected to the Hermitage Hotel in Downtown Nashville. It is a lovely room with large pillars forming very interesting arch patterns reminiscent of Europe. The food was overall quite good, but there is one dish that was truly outstanding. The Pine Bark Stew is an appetizer that would have worked just as well as a main... More

My husband had Leg of Lamb and I had the brisket with cauliflower. It was flavorful and tender meat. Cauliflower was crispy and little tangy. Coconut cake was good but very small to split, although we were given a beautiful Anniversary dessert with macaroons and Happy Anniversary written in chocolate. All the food was presented nicely. Wait staff very attentive... More

This restaurant was in our hotel The Hermitage. We had a very nice breakfast and I would give it a full 5 stars but the hostess Dulce was so rude and we felt as though we were putting her out to seat us...no smile and looked like she was mad at the world. I know people have bad days but... More

The food was good but not great and I expected great at these prices. The presentation was poor. My plate looked more like a French countryside cafe, which I love, than a five star restaurant, which I also love. The problem is the French countryside cafe would be about half the price. The wine list is OK but the prices... More

Beautiful setting and delicious breakfast. We only go for breakfast but we go several times during each trip because it's so good.
