Just ok food, and the service was not great. We had a nice waitress but we were passed off to her after our first waiter who was quiet and not hospitable.

The menu is quite varied and the food is delicious. The Salmon 3 ways is incredible and comes highly recommended. If you want soups, sandwiches, burgers, steak and a beautiful dessert menu, this is the place for you! Excellent place for dinner, lunch and dessert.

Have so far enjoyed 2 meals here; service excellent -- friendly, but not intrusive, attentive. Food excellent -- specials of the day interesting. All foods prepared well. Excellent wine list and full well-stocked bar.

Quality service, ambiance and food meet a fair price for such. There are more expensive steakhouses, but the value for those places in lost on me. Service is attentive but unobtrusive. The wood paneling harkens back to a day when cognac and cigars were the order of business, and quiet conversation was expected, not the exception. The steaks are wonderfully... More

Was here for first time a few weeks ago with a business connection. Nice environment. Long menu. Proffesional service. Good selection of wine. Long story short, we order starter, main and dessert - all was extremly well good. It's expensive, however worth every dollar if you need to get the deal done and style matters. I will be back!

The Rib Eye was great. Capital Grille's steak is really good, I truly enjoyed my generous serving, including the desserts! The ambience is very pleasant and the staff are very accommodating. Will definitely eat here again, and looking forward to it.

The hostess warmly greeted us as we walked in and our table was ready almost immediately. It was a birthday dinner and there was glitter on the table to make it festive. Our server, Jay was attentive and friendly. Service was immediate but not rushed. The steak and seafood were the best I've had. And a lovely birthday dessert followed.... More
