Great place for international guest

Took friends from Japan and Singapore. Food and service were outstanding. Everybody was impressed, I wished we could justify the expense more often!

Went here for a business dinner. To start things they have an enormous wine selection, not my thing but I'm sure they have what you might want. I started with a bacon wedge salad that looked to be about a third of the head of lettuce. Very good. The steaks here are great, I had a bone in ribeye. Cooked... More

My wife and I consider this our favorite place to eat. OUTSTANDING "dry aged" steaks and seafood. Very professional service. You must try the Lobster Mac and Cheese, (yeah, I know, sounds weird) it is delicious. Another great appetizer choice is the Calamari - I don't like calamari, but I do like theirs! The wine selection is great and the... More

Went there with my friend for some good steaks. We entered the restaurants in hoodies and jeans, while everyone was in suits (we did not know we had to wear suits). Anyways we were let inside and our waitress was helpful. We do not have great experiences with steaks, so I had the waitress recommend a steak for me. My... More

Our dinner was to celebrate a successful business trip and it was the perfect choice for such a meal. Our service was courteous, friendly, and prompt. The food was amazing; I had the bone-in ribeye and shared the lobster macaroni and cannot recommend them enough. I highly recommend dining at the Capital Grille if you travel to Milwaukee.

My business partner and I were checking out restaurants in downtown Milwaukee for client meetings. We struck the mother lode at Capital Grille. The service was great, the pace of the meal was not rushed. Our server, Angel, made several recommendations that were all great. I had a cup of lobster bisque which was the best soup of my life....

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 setting, as we'd wanted... 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!
