The Capital Grille was a perfect dinner for my family while visiting DC in July 2016. The location is perfect, nestled near several major attractions of the city. They have a Gluten Free menu with the majority of their traditional menu safe for those of us with gluten allergies. Pricing is on par with other nice steak houses. The bill... More

Not far from work know some of the staff. Friendly laid back atmosphere. It is bigger than it looks. Fast service even when it is crowded.

Service is always exceptional. Food is top notch. I tell everyone that no calamari anywhere is better. Perfect filet. And don't forget the cheesecake. You will not be disappointed.

It was ok. Food was like any good steak house, but overpriced. Service was average. Parking was very difficult and not free or validated.

Now I know why this place is almost always packed. I had what I consider the absolute best ever sliders EVER!!! Oh and the truffle fries-you must have those. I docked them because they have only bottled beer. Save up before you go, it's not cheap.

I took a group of 15 to the Grille for lunch. The service was great, the food was great. The steak tartare is special.

Excellent restaurant and bar with new sirloin tips that were out of this world. Perfect establishment for meeting with clients or colleagues. Great steak house in Tysons Corner.

We went last night for my 14 years old son BD. We had a lovely dinner with an amazing BD dessert surprise! The meat was extraordinary, delicious, and simply outstanding! I had the filet mignon, our son had the steak with lobster tail, and lamb chops. It is our second time there and I am amazed from the knowledgeable staff!... More
