Great food and atmosphere. Staff is very warm and friendly and food is upscale and consistent. My favorite item is a filet done pittsburgh style or with a kona crust. If dessert is an option the coconut cream pie, flourless chocolate cake or cheesecake are ALL great. Lobster mac and cheese is great too if appetite for decadence. Overall we... More

We come here a lot as we live close by. Food is always consistent. Wine list is great. My kids come with us sometimes and they don't seem to mind that. Service is great as usual

If you are looking to treat yourself at a great steak place, look no further than the Capital Grill. I've eaten at Capital Grills about 4 times or so in the past couple of years and have never been disappointed with the service or food. Each time I get the filet -- each time it has been perfectly cooked to... More

Our dining experience was a delight from the lovely table, impeccable service from our waiter Adam, scrumptious rack of lamb to taking in the fashionable atmosphere. The salads both Cesar and Spinach were delicious and one serving is enough for two. The potatoes au gratin were so thinly sliced in a wonderful cream sauce and baked to perfection. The portions...

My appreciation goes to the management and staff for a great dinning event. 12 guys on a golf weekend had a fabulous dinner with multiple 'Big' bottles of wine from a great wine list. Food was spectacular as it always is at The Capital Grill!

First off, the reception was very stiff and without a smile. Granted, we arrived without a reservation for a late lunch. We were not offered the regular menu, but just the lunch menu with various chef options. The menu was ample and we ordered cream of asparagus soup, scallops with pea risotto and calamari. All were good when we finally... More
