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! Our server, Sara, was the utmost professional, with the perfect mix of friendliness and attentiveness, but never over-bearing. The food was just over the top delicious. When... More

The prime rib was gigantic! I had the filet Mignon and it was fantastic. Our company paid the bill so I can't comment on the price or value but I would go ther again even if they weren't paying for it.

We ate here with another couple for a nice dinner. The food and wine was outstanding. The atmosphere is classic, however the restaurant was a little loud. Not the fault of the restaurant, just obnoxious people. I highly recommend the steaks.

I had the tenderest bone-in filet, exceptional roasted golden beets with goat cheese and a delicious brussels sprouts salad. I can't wait to go back and try something new. Make a reservation knowing you will spend some cash, but I promise you will not be sorry. This is not dinner out, this is fine dining in a lovely atmosphere.

My birthday dinner was amazing! The lobster bisque was out if this world! Crab cakes best I've had in Milwaukee! My filet was tender and had great flavor! They brought me out a dessert for my birthday and it was so good! Aaron was a great server! It's a little pricey but worth it!
