“Best Steak and Service by far”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Whilst on a short vaction to Miami and Orlando a friend recommended the Capital Grille as they had a great experience in New York so we was quite lucky to literally stumble across this fine steak house whilst out doing even more shopping on a lazy sunday afternoon and it was only a 15 minute walk from our hotel just enough time to burn some calories off on the walk back.

We booked a table online and arrived at our due time and was taken straight to the bar and selected some cocktails to try whilst we waited to be seated which only took 5 minutes max we were seated in direct sight if the kitchen area which was great for us to see the preparations take place our waitress was very polite and helped me choose a steak after asking if we had visited a steak house and for my sins i had not but Miriam ( i think ) was great and I chose the dry aged steak au poivre with courvoisier cream med to well with lobster and crab cakes for starters and my partner choose the calamari starter with a porter house steak. The restaurant was busy but not to busy that you couldn't have a conversation and enjoy your meal when the starters arrived i was in sheer heaven best lobster and crab cakes id had anywhere and i was tempted to cancel the steak and just have another few portions of the superb lobster and crab cakes but i wasnt going to not try the steak and i was so so pleasantly surprised at how tender and soft and flavourful the steak was i enjoyed every mouthful and to be honest cant even remember what came with the steak but in short the entire experience was fantastic great atmosphere great service and excellent food the perfect meal to a perfect break in Orlando

“Best Resteraunt in Orlando”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

This is the only restaurant in Orlando that Darden now owns and hasn't ruined. Darden bought this Nationally know restaurant and left their tentacles off of it. It is so wonderful with service not know to Orlando and food that is incredible. I am a big service oriented person and here you will find extremely attentive servers they appear out of nowhere when you need them. Awesome.

“Excellent Steak!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

We attended a business lunch during a conference and I had an excellent meal. Had the filet and it was Great. A tad bit overcooked (ordered it medium), but the flavor was excellent! Loved the appetizers..calamari with jalapenos were excellent! To top it off, the service was excellent and the atmosphere was great for a business luncheon.

“Locals luv this restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Four of us eat together once a month. This is our favorite steak restaurant . Always perfectly cooked. Service was great. We arrived at 6:30 which enabled us to be served in one of the smaller rooms. Nice & quiet until it got crowded. Wonderful evening .

“If you are looking for superb food and excellent service, make a reservation.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

I took a party of guests to this restaurant after my daughters wedding and they made a great day into an everlasting memory. I envisaged having to arrange a set menu as there was a large party but they agreed to accommodate me from the A La Carte menu which meant that everyone could choose for themselves. The food was magnificent. Steak is their specialty and finding any better meat elsewhere would be a real challenge. Lamb, chicken and seafood is also available and served to the same very high standard. The sides are large portions and are really meant for sharing. The wine list is truly outstanding. The service was excellent. From the Sales Manager who arranged the celebration for me, to the ladies who looked after us in the bar and the guys who waited on table, I could not have been more satisfied. If you need to create something really memorable then the cost is not a factor.
Value for money is what you are looking for and this place knows how to accommodate you.
