My wife and I had a wonderful experience at The Capital Grille. We were celebrating an anniversary. We had an 8 pm reservation. We got to the restaurant around 7:30, checked in with the hostess and grabbed a seat at the bar. A little before 8 pm our table was ready and we have a wonderful waiter and a great... More

The Surf and Turf was incredibly cooked to PERFECTION!! JARED was simply a 5 STAR DELIGHT. His personality and attentiveness was a CUT ABOVE. We spent $300+ on the meal, drinks, and dessert. Expensive but definitely well worth it. Manny was also awesome adding to our fine dining experience. Hostess and coat check girl had great attitudes as well. But... More

One drink, one entrée, and a salad, $90! Wanted to order the filet, but they had a special filet on the bone that they talked a few of us into. Figured it might be a little more than the standard one on the menu for like $42. Got charged $60 for it. The filet was good, but not worth $60.... More

Had a business lunch and picked this location as it is so centrally located. The service was topped notch and the food was fantastic. I tried the lobster bisque with big pieces of fresh lobster. I also like the fact the sherry is on the side so you can control the overall flavor. For the main course i had the... More

Crowded place and there was too much noise but the steaks are great. We had two salads for appetizers, both decent, and for mains the Bone-In sirloin and tenderloin were great, although the extra lobster tail were so small I would have thought it to be a shrimp! Relave small serving of mashed potato and green beans as sides. The... More

This place was great. My husband and I were there for my 50th birthday on 1/31/15. Had reservations at 7:30. Did have to wait to long. The food was so good. Our server was so nice and she was very attentive. Made me feel special for my birthday. They had a red rose on the table for me with a... More

From the time you walk in and up to the seating Hostess to the time you leave, it's class all the way. H and I had reservations on a night that also happened to be during Restaurant Week. Even though it was crowded, the Hostess was right on top of it with a calm demeanor, smile, and we were seated... More
