Truly Quality Experience

I don't review as much as I used to, which is lousy of me because I probably rely more on others reviews on this point than ever. This place prompted a return to Trip Advisor for me. We took a group of grizzled construction supervisors to the Capital Grille in MKE during a company outing and while... read more

Terrible bartender, Mitch is an arrogant person for customers that constantly go to this establishment. When will there GM wake up.. If you like to sit at the bar and drink and have dinner .. this is not the place .. This don't give a crap attitude doesn't fly well with several of us guys that hang and spend $$$$$$$$$

My husband and I visited for lunch on Christmas Eve Day. We made a 1:00 reservation, arrived early and were seated immediately. Our waiter, Marcelo, could not have been more friendly, helpful and attentive. The restaurant was decorated beautifully for the holiday and the atmosphere was very festive. We started with the calamari ($15). This dish was recommended by our... More

Went Christmas Eve, had a reservation for 745pm. Normally I don't care if I get seated on time +- 10 minutes, but we needed to be somewhere on time later in the evening. When we arrived, we were told first they could not find the reservation, then we were told we were set for 815pm. This in spite of the... More

The Capital Grille was excellent. We went on Thanksgiving and was totally impressed. The food was fantastic.. The waiter was awesome and the food could not have been better. Turkey dinner was delicious and generous and when I asked for dark meat only and skin, the waiter made it happen.. Can't remember his first name but the last name was... More

If you like your meat, chances are you've been to Capital Grille. Perfectly done, great service, nice decor. We've been to a few different ones and they have their formula down...so consistent.

Great place to celebrate an anniversary like we did. Porcini rubbed steak with 15 year aged balsamic was tasty. My boyfriend's 24oz dry aged porterhouse was a bit bland to me. The service was impeccable, and there is valet parking. Its a bit pricey so plan accordingly. Recommended and will go again.

Booked our table on line and added it was our 20th anniversery. We were seated right away and were surprised to see that they had placed a large rose across the table along with glitter on the table.

This was a fabulous night. The staff were very attentive, our steaks cooked to perfection. We visited before the Garth Brooks concert and were able to valet our car and leave our doggie bag with the restaurant until after the concert, which was a huge benefit. Expensive
