Good food

We like to meet here for lunch once a year during our annual convention. It is one of the nicest places to go in downtown Milwaukee. The service is great, the food is good, but I wouldn't consider it consistent (I know, we only go there once a year, but...). Overall good place to go for business... read more

Service could be a bit over-attentive and interrupted our business lunch a tad too often. Chicken caesar salad was tough to cut and eat - the chicken should have been sliced. Coworkers did enjoy the mini tenderloin sandwiches.

We made a reservation to celebrate a birthday and had a wonderful time. We were seated immediately and the table had some small, tasteful birthday decoration including a birthday card. Our server (Angel) was very attentive and knowledgeable. At the end of the evening he offered to take a group photo and then quickly returned with a printed group photo... More

My wife and brother in law went to have a nice steak, was recommended to come here for a great steak. Our waitress was super short and very inattentive. Although we didn't have 3 piece suits on or my wife wearing her mothers pearls, she treated us like crap because we were wearing regular (but nice) clothes. I have eaten... More

This was the second time we visited Capital Grille with friends to celebrate a birthday. This restaurant has a casual but elegant feel to it with tables and booths, yet warm and welcoming. Our server was very attentive and keep the pace of the meal going without feeling rushed. Appetizers included oysters on the half shell, shrimp cocktail and crab... More

I work in Milwaukee and eat here about once a month. The staff is outstanding from the moment you walk in they are focused on making sure your experience exceeds expectations. Every time I come in they recall how I like my salad prepared and the temperature I like my entree prepared. The food here is great. I love the... More

I ate here after reading a review that it was a traveller's favourite as I'm only here for a few days. I was thinking it was more on a budget, being a traveller's fave, but it was a bit more money than I expected. That said, the food was well worth the money and it wasn't an issue. The ambiance...

We dined here before and were very happy with our meals, so we decided to give The Capital Grill another go and were we glad we did. Yes, I know this is a large chain of restaurants ,but the overall experience does not lend itself to the chain stereotype. The place is shrouded in dark warm wood, subdued lighting and... More

I had lunch here with 3 colleagues to celebrate my birthday, ableit belatedly. We have been going to the same few places and wanted to try something new. Wow, what an amazing experience!
