Nice upscale venue. Close to all downtown attractions and hotels. Quiet and intimate. Full bar. Desserts were great Lobster Bisque was awesome. Great for couples or business. Very nice rest rooms

Had dinner here my first night in Indy with my wife. We split the wedge salad, she had the lobster mac n cheese and I had the seared tuna. All the food was cooked to perfection and was delicious. The mixed drinks we had were strong and that's always a good thing when you're paying downtown prices.

We've only had breakfast at this location, while staying at the Conrad, but thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Fortunately we were in no hurry; so we could enjoy wonderful food, in an elegant setting, with accommodating service. A great start for any day. Not inexpensive, but a fine indulgence.

Stopped in late with my wife for desert and coffee. You simply cannot beat these restaurants. Bill Sutton was our server. Probably the friendliest server to date. Thank you!

My daughter took me to the Capitol Grille for a special treat. The food was good but not worth the prices charged. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone on a budget

My wife and I went to Capital Grill for our anniversary. Our table had decorations celebrating that. Service could not have been better, with an attentive waiter who watched carefully for anything that needed his attention, but let us enjoy our time together. Both of us ate steak which was prepared to perfection. It is pricey, but well worth it... More

Saw where this was rated the number 2 best restaurant in the city. It did not disappoint. Excellent steaks, wonderful seafood menu and the Flour-less chocolate cake is melt-in-your-mouth perfection. Would go back again and often!

There's very few times you describe a restaurant as kind. Yes, the food and service was some of the best i've ever had, but the thing that stood out the most was the kindness of the staff. The manager and the team of hosts went out of their way to accommodate me and my two sons! Thank you!

If you are visiting Indianapolis, this is a classic restaurant option. We LOVE Donna, who has been there for years and is fantastic! For us, Capital Grille is a special occasion (Yuletide!) place. Since the menu doesn't often change, there isn't as much motivation to visit more regularly (except Donna, as I said--she is a dear, and sometimes we just... More

Capital Grille is consistently one of the finest restaurants in downtown Indianapolis in all regards: menu, food quality, service, ambiance, and the dining experience.
