“Great option for business dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

The last two times I was in Milwaukee for business, we went to dinner as a group to Capital Grille. Each time, we had a great experience.

Location - downtown within walking distance to most hotels and businesses. Valet parking. Service - Excellent. Food - Delicious. Options for everyone from vegetarian pasta (yes, at a steak house), to ahi tuna, to many varieties of steak. Get the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella with tomatoes appetizer Wine - Excellent wine list with a wide variety of prices. Dessert - Get the coconut pie or the balsamic strawberries with vanilla ice cream. Trust me on this.

*NOTE* - Their definition of medium rare is what everyone else defines as rare. Unless you want blood on your plate, ask for medium.

“Great & personal service & good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

The service was almost too much as the waitress talked very much. But overall very good food (big portions) and great experience.

“One of the best meals I've ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

My experience at The Capital Grille was first class from start to finish. If only every restaurant adopted service and quality of food like this!

A MUST try. No exceptions.

“Excellent if you don't mind paying the price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We had a great experience there - the steaks, from the filet to the bone-in ribeye were excellent. We also had the fresh lobster as a table enhancer and it was terrific. We would highly recommend the calamari appetizer. The waiter was great and had several suggestions that helped make the experience for us, from the lobster preparation to tips on ordering sides and wine suggestions. Pricey versus other venues but not a surprise if you are used to chophouse tabs. I prefer to pay the price for the benefit of the truly enjoyable experience.

“Excellent steakhouse with tasty sides”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

The steaks are always wonderful. We have tried the many steak options on the regular menu, as well as the specials. The calamari is a great appetizer. Lobster Mac and cheese is delicious. The steaks are always cooked to perfection.
