There were five adults and a two year old in the party, we were not exactly dressed for a 'posh' restaurant but were treated like royalty. The steaks were to die for! We ate at lunch time so the prices were not too bad but for food and service of that quality I would certainly have an evening meal there.

You pay a lot for an okay steak. So with okay flavor you would expect excellent presentation and service. But, it was average. You should feel ape avail and your food should look awesome when you go to a capital grill. What's up Baltimore?

From the moment you walk in the door you are treated like royalty. All the staff were amazing. Our waiter Thomas White was phenomenal!!! He knew the menu very well. He really took great care of us on our anniversary tonight!!!! It was worth every penny and when we come back we will be here again!!!!!

There is much to rave about at Capital Grille. Have not found anything on the menu that I don't like. It is a $$$$ restaurant but worth it. The food is wonderful and the service is excellent. This is the perfect restaurant for any occasion but especially for a special celebration.

Our overall experience here was outstanding. Our server was impeccable! The bartender that served us before being seated was awesome as well. Food cooked perfectly and absolutely delectable.

Love Capital Grille. Ordered lamb chops and steak. The lamb was done to perfection and my husband really enjoyed his steak. We started with a salad,Caesar, which was very cold and crisp. Had ice cream with strawberries for dessert. Yummy. Service was ok. Our waitress was not terribly attentive but to be fair we had said that we didn't want... More

My husband and I have been to Capital Grille three times now. Each time has been flawless. The service, the food, the wine list and the atmosphere are all outstanding. In some of the fine dining restaurants in Baltimore and elsewhere, the tables are too close together. Capital Grille has many booths and the tables are mostly spaced so that... More

When the question was asked of our daughter "Where would you like to have dinner on your birthday?", the answer was swift and decisive ..... Capital Grille. She chose the location near Loyola University in Baltimore where she attends. From the outset, our waiter Marcus was the penultimate server. He was spot on with his wine suggestions and his ideas...

My family wanted to have a party for me for my birthday, but I really didn't want one. So they told me to decide what I wanted to do and I chose Capital Grille after hearing so many good things from friends. I reserved our table for 6 back in November. The day before our dinner, I received a confirmation... More

We decided to do the advertised "Traditional Thanksgiving meal" at Capital Grille this year. The good: the service was outstanding. We have been to restaurants all around the world, and this rivaled the best in service. The bad: the food was disappointing. To be fair, we have been to other Capital Grilles before, and the food was always excellent .... More
