Great business place

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.

This is a high end steak place similar to Ruth Crist, Flemings, Mortons and the like. Service and food quality was top notch. I had a strip steak au pouvre and it was perhaps the best steak I've had in quite some time. Everything is ala carte and it is pricey. That was expected.

We have visited this restaurant several times with friends and business associates. Modern, pleasant interior, friendly, efficient waitstaff. A full bar with an excellent bartender provides a good start. The place focuses on red meat and does it very well. The sides are satisfying and the wine list, while not extensive, covers all the basis. You can't go wrong by... More

I went here for my 52nd birthday celebration this year. We were seated promptly for our reservation. They had birthday confetti on the white tablecloth along with a birthday card signed by the staff. We were greeted with a smile by one of the best waiters on the planet who was very attentive to our every need and request. He... More

My girlfriend and I went here for the first time to celebrate her birthday. I could write a book(and they should) on all the things they did to make our experience pleasurable. The food was very good but... I wouldn't say I was wowed. The restaurant contacted me after our visit to follow up on our visit and ask if... More

I loved that the room service from the Aloft Hotel was from Capital Grille. The food came hot and fast! Probably faster than if I was actually in the restaurant. A great meal.

We have eaten at this restaurant numerous times and we have only been disappointed once. Their steaks are seasoned well, as well as their lobsters. There are two locations and we were pleasantly surprised when they opened up the 2nd location in City Centre. We have only eaten at that location once on my birthday and of course we were... More

The Capital Grille has been one of my son's favorites for a few years. He kept wanting me to try it, so 5 of us, plus my 3 month and 2 year old granddaughters, went to celebrate Mother's Day. It is pricey, but the food was excellent and the dining room was lovely. Service was impeccable but not stuffy, and... More
