The meal couldn't be faulted. Lamb chops precisely medium rare as ordered, sea bass cooked to perfection. A wonderful dinner for my partner and me. The drinks were excellent and the service attentive. Our only comment, it would be nice if the meal came with an accompaniment that was not another cost.

We decided to have a fancy lunch for our Anniversary this year, rather than dinner. This made the jaunt to downtown easier and more relaxing. We were given a fantastic booth with a great view, where we could see the inner harbor. A cocktail was a must for the celebration, and the Cosmo and Manhattan were perfectly mixed. Started our...

We visited here for Restaurant Week in the Summer and were very disappointed. After speaking with the manager, he wanted us to come back, so they could do it right. We brought another couple with us for a date night. Our service was awesome! This is the way a steak house experience is supposed to be! The steaks were juicy... More

Wonderful atmosphere, lively lounge and great Bartender. Food is exemplary on a regular basis. Try everything! Service can be a bit on and off with moody servers at times. Always a superb meal.

Food was Scrumptious. For my entree, I had a stuffed lobster tail. Every part of the meal tasted fresh and delivered an unforgettable experience.

Whenever we visit Baltimore and want to have a special evening out, this is our "go-to" place! The ambiance is wonderfully charming and we have never experienced anything but the most efficient, "on spot" service. Yes, the evening will take bucks out of your wallet..............but, trust me, you, indeed, get what you pay for! This time we dined with two... More

Even after a long day in I-95 traffic, this visit was worthwhile! The food and ambience were both terrific and the nice little anniversary dessert was a bonus! Our waiter Albert was wonderful, pampering us with just the right amount of attention without smothering. Yes, this restaurant was one of those $$$$ types, but from appetizer to dessert, there was...

The bar we all generally set for CG is high. Hence it is no surprise that a vast majority of our fellow TripAdvisor colleagues speak so highly of CG. Typically I avoid merely repeating the "this restaurant is great mantra". Last night was different though and the experience owed a review. The food was great, as usual. What differentiated last...

Everything about dining here was wonderful - service, atmosphere, quality of the food. I just think it's very overpriced. Really - $45 for a hunk of meat and nothing else? That said, the meals my husband, two friends and I had were all excellent. The sliced filet with cippolini onions and cremini mushrooms that I ordered was delicious, though I... More

Maybe this was a unique experience since the reviews on average are high but we had a poor experience at the Capital Grill in Baltimore. One of our parties steaks was well done although order medium rare- the other three steaks ordered medium rare did come out perfect. Our potato side dish was cold and the server was not attentive....
