Great place for Steaks

We ate here with another couple for a nice dinner. The food and wine was outstanding. The atmosphere is classic, however the restaurant was a little loud. Not the fault of the restaurant, just obnoxious people. I highly recommend the steaks.

I had the tenderest bone-in filet, exceptional roasted golden beets with goat cheese and a delicious brussels sprouts salad. I can't wait to go back and try something new. Make a reservation knowing you will spend some cash, but I promise you will not be sorry. This is not dinner out, this is fine dining in a lovely atmosphere.

My birthday dinner was amazing! The lobster bisque was out if this world! Crab cakes best I've had in Milwaukee! My filet was tender and had great flavor! They brought me out a dessert for my birthday and it was so good! Aaron was a great server! It's a little pricey but worth it!

I went to the Capital Grille for the first time on Valentine's Day. To start, our server, Bryan, was knowledgeable and friendly. I had the Citrus glazed salmon and it was delicious. The lobster Mac n cheese and lobster bisque was also very good. My boyfriend had a steak and said it was probably the best steak he's ever eaten.... More

My 10 oz filet was so tender and so flavorful...the best steak I ever had! And for $42 ala carte it should be amazing! I added the shaved brussel sprout salad with mustard vinaigrette dressing and bacon was delicious! There was a nice assortment of bread offerings and I enjoyed the minced garlic slices.

Went over to Capital Grille for lunch, seeing that it is only a few blocks from my office. Food was delicious, wait staff was pleasant. Food was delicious.

Stopped in as it was late and sat at the bar to eat. To start with the service was slow as they were busy, but apologies were provided and the service was good from there. Had the clam chowder, which was good. Followed with cheeseburger which was a little salty for me. The portions were large and the bar food... More

Our large group of business colleagues were well-treated from the time we gathered briefly at the bar until the final morsel of deserts we shared. The atmosphere was friendly, warm and cheerful. The private room served our party well for open conversation. The service was excellent and on the spot, from great suggestions for appetizers to making sure we tried... More

Arrived in town late and knew I'd get a nice meal..I'm happy to say that the food was consistent and delicious and the service from our waiter Eric was perfect. Everyone that took care of us couldn't have been more accommodating. Great filets, great fish, excellent sides, delicious cocktails. Thumbs up from all of us, we'll be back.

The calamari was tasty, the Kona rubbed dry aged sirloin was cooked perfectly. My filet mignon with lobster tails were a bit salty but I enjoyed them. The sides were great, potato au gratin delicious, the asparagus was just right. Overall a very satisfying evening, our waiter made it extra special, he was attentive and simply one of the best...
