My husband and I have a local steakhouse that we love. We are often disappointed when we try other steakhouses. Not so with The Capital Grille! We were surprised as it is a chain. We had the lobster bisque, the Kona dry aged sirloin (without the bone) and delmonico steak. Our side was the au gratin potatoes. All of it... More

This is my wife's "celebration" restaurant. Easily the best steaks I have had. The shallot butter sauce and the kona rub are fantastic. If you like a little extra spice on your steaks, you can get that too. It is rather expensive, but I guess you get what you pay for. If it's winter, try not to sit too near... More

On November, 8 2014 my fiancé and I celebrated our engagement at the Capital Grille and could not have had a better experience. I have dined at the Capital Grille many times, and always enjoyed my dinner, but this time was exceptional. Our waitress, Kimberlee, went above and beyond our expectations and provided what was truly the best service that... More

The whole experience was a B+/A-. The Calimari was the best I've ever had. The rest of the meal was good. Good job!!!!

In town for a conference, I went here with my wife, daughter, and father-in-law. I started with the oysters, which were excellent. My wife had the excellent lobster bisque. My entree was the filet and lobster. We got creamed spinach, potatoes, and brussels sprouts, all of which were terrific. Our waitress was perfection. Four of us were at a big,... More

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.

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!!
