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

This was our second time visiting Capital Grill and we were not disappointed. We took advantage of Restaurant Week and had a delicious 3 course meal. We all chose the sirloin steak and it was amazing. The sides potatoes and string beans are served family style and they were cooked to perfection. Everyone in our group opted for the creme... More

This is our once a year dinner I have with my sons , we go to the Capital Grill this is our 10th yr, as usual the grill makes it great. Starting with the excellent service right down to the perfect steaks they serve. The friendly people you meet with great atmosphere, makes it worth going.

We generally love the Capital Grille but due to the pricing, it is an extravagance for us and saved only for very special occasions. This time the service was excellent as always. However, the dining area was overly loud. We were a table of nine and it was difficult to converse and that was annoying. Our entrees were good. Not... More

Went here one day after attending academy of music. We were seated rather quickly yet that was basically all the service we received. A bus boy noticed no one came to us and gave us water and bread. We were trying to be patient yet after 15-20 minutes we left. Mind you, another couple came in 5 min after us... More
