Very overrated people. Much better steaks elsewhere. My filet mignon was tough, lukewarm and dry. Not good.

This establishment is amazing from the time you pull up to the time you sit down and enjoy your meal. The staff and service are so thoughtful and considerate. It was our 19 year anniversary, they knew it to the number of years, addressed us...by last name to seat and serve us. The food!!!!!AMAZING!!!! This has been the best restaurant we've ever been to. Definitely recommend to anyone for any occasion. 5 stars all the way!!!More

Per usual, our meal was excellent - In my experience, at the several locations nationwide I have dined at the Capital Grille their service, food, and ambiance remains consistent on all accounts.

I cannot say enough good things about our visit. Our Waitress "LC" was knowledgeable, engaging, efficient and pleasant. The wine and food were outstanding.

We dined on the patio. My son kept saying "This is the best hamburger I ever had!" I had clam chowder, and it was excellant. After we left my son told me, "That hamburger was so good. I thought I was in heaven for a...minute."More

We had been at National Gallery and were looking for someplace real close. We found this place, right across the street. Went in and had a delightful lunch and afternoon . Akim was our server and he made everything an experience for my sister and...I. We started with Brut, we were celebrating our birthdays. We shared a savory Ceasar Salad. We both had an outstanding burger, excellent. Then Akim brought us a dessert to celebrate our birthdays. Unbelievable, words aren’t enough, to die for. We just had a unforgettable experience. We did not want to leave!We want and will go back. Thank you.More

We made reservations at 7:30but arrived at 7:10 and our table was ready. We were seated in a corner which was nice because we were out of traffic flow. All staff wore masks & gloves. Our waitress was courteous and professional. I started with the...field green salad, which was good. My husband had a cup of lobster bisque (which was much better than the lobster bisque at Ocean Prime) and then had a wedge salad which he said was super! I had the chicken breast on a bed of mushroom risotto (excellent!) and my husband had the ribeye which was perfectly cooked medium rare. We shared a table serving of Brussels sprouts (also excellent!). I had one glass of Pinot Grigio and my husband had one Maker’s Mark double. Our bill was $200. A nice relaxed evening!More

Huge portions !! I ordered a burger & fries. Yummy but huge. Cooked to order so you need to wait but so worth it. Juicy meaty burger, great fries -all good!Friendly service as well.

Hubs took me there as a special treat. It was amazing. Our server was the best server we have ever had at any restaurant. He was attentive without being intrusive, helpful without being pushy and overall one of the nicest human beings I have ever...met. We ordered some shrimp for the appetizer. It was fantastic. The bread basket for the table had a great selection and it was hard not to fill up on the bread. I ordered a filet, medium and hubby ordered a rib eye, also medium. We got brussel sprouts, creamed spinach and scalloped potatoes as sides. We also both got Caesar salads. Everything was amazing. My steak was cooked perfectly and I am picky. The scalloped potatoes were the best I have ever eaten. We were stuffed but made room for dessert. We shared a creme brûlée. I am not a coffee drinker but our server said the barista made a great mocha so I ordered one. It was heavenly. One of the best meals I have ever eaten. We will go back.More
