Bravo! They get everything right! Service and Food. It's worth every bit money. Nothing compares to the Porcini Rubbed Delmonico with 15-Year Aged Balsamic their signature steak, prepared with delicate porcini mushroom crust. Our anniversary was in December and we waited a month due to schedules to celebrate. They remembered. EXCELLENT! The best Lemon Drop Martini. I prefer not to... More

Took my mom here for her birthday. She loved her steak and lobster. I got the steak and it was really good. The service here is second to none. The food I think was really good, just not up to the five star level. The ambiance in the restaurant is great. They have a nice bar and wonderful lighting throughout... More

The food, service, and ambiance were outstanding, as we have come to expect when visiting a Capital Grille, regardless of the city. My wife had the Lobster Bisque with Sherry followed by Seared Sea Bass and Sautéed Spinach. I had... More

Was invited here for a Christmas office party. I arrived early, so I went to the bar to order a drink while I waited for others to arrive. The bar area was quite ho-hum and not inviting as it overlooked the entryway and reception/waiting area. There were a few tables and chairs near the side of the bar, but it... More

Wow your spouse by celebrating your anniversary at the Capital Grille. Perfectly prepared cuisine, exceptional fine wine, professional, knowledgeable, and attentive service in a tastefully decorated romantic setting. Imagine sparkles and a long stem red rose on your table, multiple greetings of "Happy Anniversary", followed by French onion soup or spinach salad, pepper crusted filet mignon with multiple choice of...

The Capital Grille goes the extra mile to make sure that everything is just right. The food was fabulous. When I reserved I mentioned it was for my husband's birthday and the house brought us champagne and two lovely just right sized desserts. We will be back for another special occasion.

We were lucky to stay near such a great place like TCG. First time we had a dinner there just because it is so near (1 min walk). Then twice more we went there because it is sooo friendly, tasty and great wine list. Interior design is impressive as well. We will definitely be back!
