My job allows me the opportunity to go to all the great restaurants in Baltimore on a fairly regular basis for catered events. Without a doubt, Capital Grille is the BEST. Efficient, classy, attention to serving detail and gratuity only valet parking. Our appetizer this evening was the calamari with hot peppers. Not being a seafood eater, I can't speak... More

We celebrate our daughters 18th birthday and each order the "bone-in" filet. After trimming off the bone, we netted at most a 4oz filet that was rare at best. We were unable to chew most of it and had to remove pieces from our mouth via our napkin. Pretty sad for a $67 entree. Our server and the manager were... More

This is a great date place, you can eat inside where its nice and dim lit and cozy or outdoor seating with heat lamps and a covered porch; you can also buy and smoke cigars here a bonus to top off the great cocktails and wine. The bar menu is awesome and the lambchops are so yummy you forget your... More

My wife and I had dinner at the Capital Grille on July 5. The atmosphere is beautiful. We sat at the bar and truly enjoyed the company of the bartenders - Brian and Melissa. Brian let my wife sample a specialty cocktail and made some dinner recommendations, which were all great: Fresh lobster bisque, cold crabmeat cocktail over salad, sliced... More

this restaurant got good reviews, but we don't know why. except for the soup, it was all disappointing. wilted chopped salad, crab cocktail for $19.00 was puny and the sammon was dry! we did think the wine list was thorough and affordable.

In brief, it is a nice steakhouse but our end of the night assessment was we still enjoy Mortons more. The service is really good, the prices are on par with other higher end steakhouses, though this restaurant is smaller in size than others in terms of seating area. They have high booths and dividing walls so that helps in... More

We enjoyed lunch here. There were more reasonably priced items on the menu but we got the specials - crab cocktail and tenderloin salad. So unique and delicious! Very costly ($80 for lunch with no alcohol) but worth the occasional splurge. First rate service too!

I love steaks and my friend encouraged me to try the Balsamic Ribeye. He was not wrong. Wow. It was the most amazing flavor experience one could imagine. Try it.
