“Consistently Serves the Best Steaks!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

The Kona rubbed steak is sooooo good and it gets better everytime. The Capital Grille is by far the BEST steakhouse in PGH. Don't waste your time or money at Ruth's Chris, Mortons, or Hyde Park. Have been here for lunch and dinner on many occassions. The steaks are always perfectly cooked. It is well worth the price.

“Love Capital Grille”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Food was good as always. However, service was not up to par with other Capital Grille's. They were well. Under staffed the evening of our visit. Also, the wait staff was abuzz about their parent company canceling their health insurance because of ObamaCare.

“Order the Lobster Macaroni”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Meal was absolutely amazing, in addition to the steaks they are known for, I still crave the lobster macaroni and the berries & cream dessert a month later! I would definitely go to this restaurant again and highly recommend it.

“Great Service and Atmosphere Ordinary Steak”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

My wife and I dined at the Capital Grill Saturday night. The service by the bartender hostess and server was excellent. The ambiance is nice although a little stuffy and loud. My only complaint concerns charging $48.00 for a porterhouse steak that I could have bought at the grocery store. I expected a much higher quality at this price. My wife's filet oscar was prepared well and she enjoyed it. She raved about the spinach salad saying it was the best salad she had ever had a restaurant. The potatoes augratin were also delicious as was the creme brule'. It seems to me you can get a much better cut of beef at Ruth Chris' or Hyde Park.
