It is great fine dining, I got the lamb and we had calamari before the meal. We had fantastic service and they even bought over a sample of deserts. To say I left very satisfied would be an understatement.

For our 10th Anniversary, we wanted something special, with a unique experience. The Capital Grille did not disappoint, if anything, they exceeded our expectations. Upon entering the establishment, we were greeted quickly by the hostesses who informed us that our reserved table was ready. We were then brought to our table on which they had thoughtfully placed a rose, some... More

I had to leave the table twice to go out side and cool down. I wore a sleeveless dress in January and temps were cold. It must be a small area of the restaurant. Don't sit in the booths against the kitchen wall!!!! So hot I couldnt enjoy dinner:(

We went to Capital Grille several years ago and it was superb! I don't know what has happened but it is not the same. Our waiter seemed very distracted and was barely pleasant. Our steaks were just ok. I actually enjoyed a recent Outback steak much more. I will say that the lobster mac and cheese was delicious. Do not... More

The Capital Grille is one of my favorite restaurants. Since I was by myself, I was able to quickly get a seat at the bar. The bartender was courteous, and her menu recommendation was superb. I did not need a dessert recommendation since the cheesecake is phenomenal! This place is always a great choice for any occasion!

I have always been a fan of Capital Grill and maybe this was a bad day for them but.....the hostess was less than gracious with seating. My daughters filet was returned as undercooked , sent back redone and still not as ordered. The returned steak did not come back until I had finished my sea bass which was served in... More

This was our second visit to the Capital Grill, but it's been three years since we were last there. Memories don't always ring true. We were a group of 10+. After our arrival, service was good, drinks were ordered. Fresh bread brought to the table. On our first visit we went with the house special which is steak, and as... More

A small group of friends selected The Capital Grille to celebrate a birthday. We had reservations for a Sunday evening. We were seated promptly and the service, in general, was very good. Beyond that I am searching for something positive to say. The menu is a throw back to the 1950's, lots of steak, everything a la carte, and few... More

We had Thanksgiving dinner at this restaurant. It was awesome! 3 of us ordered the Thanksgiving special, which consisted of the traditional turkey dinner with stuffing, mashed potatoes, etc. while my son and a friend ordered off the menu. Everything was delicious! Good portions. Top notch service. Beautiful interior. Planning on returning for Christmas.

There is a nice atmosphere and a high end feel. My expectations rise exponentially when the prices do as well. I had a 14 oz. steak that cost $48.00 and it was not anything special. The flavoring was bland and nothing to rave about. The bread was cold. We got one order of mashed potatoes and again nothing special. The... More
