We have been to the Boston location, so decided to not take a chance on an unknown restaurant while in Baltimore. We made a good choice because this location is just as good, if not better. I went outside the steak box and had sea bass with heirloom tomatoes in a broth - it was one of the best meals... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this steak house. It's your typical dark wood and very busy place. My husband got the kona strip and I got the lamb chops. His steak was yummy, but the lamb chop were my favorite! The service was good, very attentive waitress.

The sevice was really good and we sat in a nice outdoor section facing the harbour. Unfortunately the meat was very tasteless due to a lack of marbling-----and all three of us feltthis way. Maybe it was a one-off but I will think twice before visiting again.

We were in town for a conference and decided for our last night out to dress up and have a night of fine dining and some drinks. We had a reservation and still had to wait 47 minutes for a table. We finally got seated and they took our drink orders. I ordered a bottle of wine which we all... More

Even though it's a chain, the staff at this location makes it stand out: friendly, accommodating, hospitable... they make you feel like you're "home." I always love the calamari and their "Stoli Doli's"

We visited during restaurant week. We were seated at a table in the bar area. The waiter never came by to introduce himself. Our first introduction to him after approximately 15 minutes was "Are you guys ready to order drinks?" I cant tell you what his name is, cause he never introduced himself. We ordered off of the regular menu... More

This was our first time visiting The Capital Grille in Baltimore, and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. The restaurant is right in the heart of the downtown Inner Harbor area, and we took advantage of the free valet parking, as well as the special Restaurant Week dinner menu. The restaurant was also quick to accommodate a last minute change... More

This week in Baltimore is Restaurant Week. Since my husband and I relocated to Baltimore 2 years ago we have tried out new restaurants during Restaurant Week. Usually I am dissappointed with the choices offered by restaurants for their Restaurant Week selections. My husband and I and a friend had wanted to go to the Capital Grille for some time...well...it... More

My visits to Capital Grille in NY and Washington DC have been fabulous. Food, ambience and waitstaff are always consistent. However, the Baltimore visit has taken the lead due to our waiter, Tom White. He was do attentive to our needs we never wanted to leave. Very knowledgeable in wine, particularly in the red category.
