Amazing steaks - beyond brilliant

A little surprised by the very formal restaurant but, hey our fault for not researching more. But, the food was fantastic and we left full to bursting as we couldn't bare to leave a mouthful. Steak to die for was what we wanted and it surpassed that ! We felt a little intimidated by the formal... read more

When I think of a franchise restaurant, I don't imagine linens and dry aged steak, or a wine list so large it has to be presented on an iPad. Our waiter, Aaron, seemed to know the menu by heart and made some brilliant suggestions that allowed us to really enjoy our experience. The food was top quality, and the dry... More

We had a large business dinner and I was blown away by the food! We had a private room which was great and personal attention from staff. The filet was very tender and cooked to my request. For dessert get the cheesecake or the creme brulee. I usually can't stand the brulee, but this was awesome!

We love The Capital Grille, and always come for downtown dining week. Although the food was excellent, I have to agree with another reviewer who also felt they were rushed through their meal. We were not sure of having a cocktail or wine, but we were not offered a wine list. Our bread and salad came almost simultaneously, then the... More

Top quality service and food. An attentive waiter and delicious food made both of lunch time visits a wonderful respite from the convention we attended across the street. I look forward to returning for dinner.

Dining at The Capital Grille was a delightful treat. This is a fine dining establishment without the discomfort. Our meal was perfectly spaced out, and our waiter was incredibly knowledgeable and intuitive. He took great passion in ensuring our satisfaction. For an outstanding meal, treat yourself to The Capital Grille.

We dined during restaurant week, and had a very disappointing dining experience. Food was good as expected from the brand but the service was extremely rushed. It felt like the staff had an incentive to get us in and out under 60 minutes. Salads arrived before wine, beef before finished with salad, etc. Very disappointing.

Went here with a business associate and we decided to split a steak. Good thing we did as the Porterhouse was huge. We ordered a side of potatoes and ate about half of that and left 1/3 of the steak. I'm a big guy and honestly can't image eating that Porterhouse myself. Everything was cooked to perfection and the service... More
