They treat you all fancy :) as a humble teacher I felt like royalty. Excellent food and service, nice for a valentines day. Just be prepared this kind of luxe costs a pretty penny.

Large portions of tough, tasteless meat. Great au gratin! Even the salads were larger than good. A palace to disappointment.

The Capital Grill was, as usual, excellent. service, wine, food and atmosphere all combine to make it an ideal location for a romantic dinner, a dinner with friends, or in my case time with business partners and customers. Our server Suzanne did a wonderful job, our compliments to the entire staff.

Steak prepared to a sought after medium rare. Lobster tastes better from here.... More

I was very impressed from the minute I called to make the reservation! As soon as I gave them my name, the reception knew I had dined there before. She asked if we were celebrating anything. I replied "celebrating family Christmas". The 7 of us were immediately seated and treated to complimentary calamari...two orders! The wait staff was fantastic. Very... More

Not coming back after we discovered our waiter is gone. Extensive wine knowledge and one reason why I always brought people here.
