I've been having great food like this in France for 30 years, so it takes something for me to be really amazed by food like this. My wife and I shared the bisque, with lobster at the bottom of the bowl. The fillet was so soft a steak knife was not needed at all. This came with a red wine... More

My husband and I had another wonderful anniversary dinner at the Capital Grille. They treated us like a King and Queen. They decorated the table for us and gave us special treats for our anniversary which included a small appetizer along with dessert and champagne. They also will take a picture to remember your special occasion. Our food was delicious.... More

First impressions are what they are, and when we walked in I was taken aback by the tacky decor. My husband, who is one of the most laid back people I know even took some pot shots. The food was good. If I could give it 3 1/2 stars I would, but it lacked enough for me to give 4... More

I have heard that this restaurant is amazing, so I had high expectations going into the dining experience. I have got to say this was the best meal I have ever eaten. I got the filet mignon with a shallot butter sauce and WOW!!!! The steak just melted in my mouth.... It was amazing. My husband got the sirloin with... More

Six of us celebrating a birthday, six different steaks done perfectly, six fantastic sides, six perfect salads, great selection of wine, and a nice birthday dessert. Birthday card from the restaurant and decorative sprinkles on the table -- nice touch! Even a commemorative photo of our group for each couple. Our server, Jessica, was top notch. Great experience!!

Made reservations for a fancy dinner out at the Capital Grille and boy are we glad we did! It was a Thursday night and not very busy. 4 of us for dinner - all had steaks. The filets and steaks were cooked perfectly. We had the "generous pour" wine event with our dinner and that was a really nice way... More

Recently went with friends to try this place. I have always heard very good things about the food. I had the 10 oz filet. Was cooked pretty well. Also had a side of french beans with heirloom tomatoes and oscar-style roasted potatoes. For dessert I had the flour less chocolate espresso cake. I felt that the dinner portion was just... More

I stopped in for lunch and had the lobster bisque with sherry sauce..... amazing! Huge pieces of lobster...!! I also had the tomato salad with fresh mozzarella and aged balsamic which was great as well. My only complaint (and slight complaint) was that the service was pretty slow, although there was a misunderstanding, as I was eating alone, and the... More

This place was pretty good! I'd go back. They were open early which is really why I ended up here. But it was a good restaurant.

Quality of service and food are both impeccable. Staff is attentive but not obtrusive. Premises are wonderfully decorated and appropriate for either intimate dinners or group outings. If I find a Capital Grille in any large city, that is where I choose to go.
