This was our first experience at a Capital Grille and we were not disappointed. The service, atmosphere, and food were all exceptional. The steaks were perfectly prepared.

Our last visit was not the best experience but Erick made it right and asked us to come back and give them another chance. What a great experience today. Jim was an excellent server and companion for dinner. We have been here several times and only had one issue. Erick you and your staff are truly a class act. Thank... More

Fabulous and came hot,the way I like it. Everyone agreed the soup for was delicious. Next came a fresh lobster salad. Terrific with a light vinegarette... More

I recommend the Lobster and Crab cakes and the Lobster Bisque soup. The complimentary bread is served warm and it is delicious. I recommend that you make reservations for dinner after 6:30pm, especially on Saturdays, as I observed many customers turned away. The high chairs at the bar are on a first come basis and they have a few menu.... More

This is an update to a prior review a few years old. Fathers Day 2016. Not especially crowded but not empty... Once again another disappointing experience. I ordered the filet mignon med well and it arrived purple in the center (very rare in other words) The baked potato was not good either. It seemed old and barely warm. The spinach... More

Visit to the Capital Grille tonight after a long day shopping. I had the Gorgonzola and truffle crusted NY Strip steak in red wine sauce and it didn't disappoint. My husband had the beef fillet with butter poached lobster tails and he stated it was the best steak he has ever rated. Pricey but totally worth it!

My wife and I were able to get a last minute reservation at Capital Grille which we had been too a few times before. The previous time there the food was not up to its usual outstanding deliciousness so we thought we would give it another try. We were not disappointed. The food was OUTSTANDING!!!!

I love this restaurant and it is great for that special occasion. I usually order seafood (wife had the Sea Bass) but this time I decided to have the Gorgonzola Bone in NY Strip. It wasn't as sweet and tender as I expected and the Gorgonzola butter was to strong and left a sour taste in my mouth. The Sea... More
