We made our first trip to the Capital Grille during the second week of Restaurant Week, and we were extremely pleased. We hate when you are treated like a second class citizen when you go during this time, but at Capital Grille, this was not the case.
For our starter, my husband upgraded to the lobster bisque, which he really enjoyed. I had a big caesar salad with fresh parmesan, which was delicious. We each had the Filet Mignon with creamed spinach and mashed potatoes, and it was extremely tender and cooked to perfection. For dessert, I had the creme brulee, which was the best I ever had, and he had a chocolate espresso cake, which he loved.
The service was exellent. Our waitress was wonderful, and everything came out quickly, but not so quick that we were rushed.
My only complaint would be the mass chaos when you walk in the door. It was on a Wednesday night, and it looked like a Saturday night. The place was so packed that it was hard to even get in the door and get to the hostess. The same thing happened on the way out. We had a reservation and were seated very quickly, so it was not a huge issue, and the crowd might have been due to restaurant week.
We're really looking forward to going again!
