It's expensive when you go all out, and spurge on meal, drinks and dessert. But, what a great evening. Food and service are five star!!

Every year this restaurant offers a wine event to compliment their excellent cuisine and it's an incredible value as well as being just plain fun! Look for it in the summer months - about nine wines to taste and generous pours of the ones you like!

It was our first time at Capital Grille and was an incredible experience from start to finish - from the atmosphere to the service to the food and drinks! Loved our server, Loche, who did a fantastic job helping guide us through the menu, have the chef do a special split meal plate, and personally did the special chocolate message... More

My best friends and I surprised my wife with a birthday dinner. They first impressed by letting me bring in flowers several hours ahead of time and had them set on the table when we arrived. They took the initiative to sprinkle some confetti too. As far as the food, there were 3 different steaks that we ordered, but the... More

This was my very first time very going to Capital Grille, but I would definitely come back! The food was amazing, but they stuck a whole plate full in front of you! The service was great and if you wanted a refill on your soda, they will continue to refill it! It was a great place and we will definitely... More

I've had a gift card from The Capital Grille for sometime as I wanted to use it for a special occasion. Knowing that we were going to be in Downtown for a weekend staycation (we are locals), I thought it would be the perfect opportunity. I went onto the website and made a reservation for early Friday evening. Upon arrival,... More

I have been to the capital Grille in Washington DC, Milwaukee, and Miami. I'm familiar with their excellent service and very good food. For the first time I sat at the bar at the Dallas capital Grille because it was within walking distance of the Hotel Zaza. We enjoyed watching a basketball game, talking with other customers at the bar... More

To clarify I am a 20+ customer of The Capital Grille, primarily in the Northeast Philly, DC, Providence RI, but especially Boston. With this in mind I pretty much know what I am going to order ahead of time and I have preexisting expectations based on my experience in Boston. This restaurant is in a bit of an odd location....

You can say AWESOME in Dallas; everything here is over the top.I often come to The Capital Grille because the bartenders are the best ( I don't drink) company in town and they have these incredible fries smothered in blue cheese that are to die for.Always good company and food.

The Capital Grille in Dallas is much better than other cities I've visited. I believe it's primarily due to its management and staff. Always, and I do mean always, a "cut above" in service and knowledge of the menu; both dinner and wine. It enjoys a good clientele and you WILL NOT be disappointed.
