Nice Place to have a high end meal..food was very good and the waitress was excellent and very nice. Was a bit after lunch so the place was empty (which I love to avoid crowds!) Hostess was a bit rude not sure why, sort of turned me off from going back. 5-10 min to seat us with only 3 other... More

My wife and I went for the first time Saturday night. She is from Chicago and we have eaten at a few good steak houses in Chicago. This reminded us of a Chicago steak house with the atmosphere. We had a great server Andrew. He recommended everything we ate and he did a great job. The wine was 2007 Merlot... More

Visited for my husband's birthday and the entire night from start to finish was excellent! When we made our reservation, I was asked if I was celebrating a special occasion and I mentioned my husbands birthday. Upon arrival we found our table decorated with confetti and a birthday card signed by the team! So nice! Our courses were timed perfectly... More

This was my first visit to this restaurant and I was here for a business meeting and luncheon. The service we had was very good and the food tasted freshly prepared. The portion size was more than adequate for lunch.

Had lunch there yesterday and I must say our expectations were exceeded. I had the 8oz filet which was prepared to a "perfect" medium with creamed spinish which was great. Partner had the lobster pot pie wich was full of lobster as was the lobster bisque. Also had the french onion soup which was also very robust and great for... More

Like the other reviews read, the service was impeccable and the ambiance was great. The food - not so much for the price you have to pay. The bill for the two of us was $184.00. Add a $40 tip and it's down right expensive. We had: Steak tartar (a huge portion), raw oysters ( 4 to an order) ,... More

Very nice atmosphere to go into on a cold day after shopping at town center, took my mother out for a happy hour drink, she likes the upscale hand napkins in the bathroom like country clubs have. The dirty grey goose martinis with blue cheese stuffed olives were made perfectly. We sat at the bar and shared a calamari appetizer... More

We have eaten at The Capital Grille twice (once for lunch and once for dinner) and were not impressed at all. It was a beautiful restaurant but the food was average and overpriced. We will not go back as we prefer to pay for great food and ambiance not just ambiance.
