Nice evening out

Went for a girls weekend in celebration of our friend's engagement. We had to change our reservation time a couple times, and they were very accommodating. The food was excellent, waiter attentive but not intrusive. I do find Pappas Bros and Flemings to be better, but still good! Would return.

Having been lucky to sample a few different steak houses recently I thought this place but was good but not great. Pleasant atmosphere and good service.

My wife and I had dinner at this Capital Grille tonight. We enjoy the atmosphere and the service, from the hostess to the waiter, was excellent, but the food was okay. My wife's steak was cooked correctly but my steak was so undercooked (I ordered it medium rare plus) I sent it back. As expected it came back over cooked.... More

Great place to have a special dinner out with friends or date night. Steaks are cooked perfectly and the kona rub adds an exceptional taste.

The ambiance is wonderful and compliments to the chef for a wonderful dinner, we had the Chelean Bass and the scallops were both outstanding. Our server Terry was outstanding. Thank you for a great evening, a must visit again.

I was here recently for a business dinner. We had a separate small room for our party of 8. Very good service, good wine list. The steaks are always great.

Superb food and wine - though not cheap (11$ glass of cheapest red on list, great Zinfandel but these are Norwegian level prices!). I can really recommend the Lamb Lollipos ate the bar 4 fabulous lamb chops, get with the Parmesan and truffle fries

Little bit pricey but quality was excellent. All steaks cooked to perfection and side plates were also very good. Would recommend for the steak. Didn't need starter and no room for desert.
