“Great standard.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

Finally, a place to eat AFTER the Folger. Ate at the bar. Wonderful salad. Lamb chop small plate was a lot of food for the money and very tasty. Bartender was part of the experience. Home made ice cream was a good choice.

“Great restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

Service at the Capital Grille is great. We had a large party and ordered quite a few different menu items to share. The lobster mac and cheese was as good as the truffle fries. I had the steak sandwich which I could have shared with another adult. It was cooked perfectly, very tender and flavorful. Loved this place.

“Not the best steakhouse, but a "nice" place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012

This is considered an upscale restaurant and the ambiance is nice but truly, the food here is not that great. So many better options - I would prefer Ruths or Mortons or Sam and Harrys.
