We came for dinner during Restaurant Week and had a great experience. The food and service were excellent. It has a great atmosphere and tables and booths are spaced for privacy and conversations. The noise level is minimal. The service was very attentive, friendly and helpful. We would recommend their clam chowder followed by Filet Mignon with potatoes and green... More

Our waiter Jeff was very knowledgeable and friendly. He provided helpful guidance in ordering wine and food. We were celebrating a minor/goofy event but all the staff that we had contact with joined in on our silly revelry.

We have never had an experience at the Capital Grille that was less than excellent. However, our dinner experience with two other couples last November was truly outstanding. It was a special night because one of the couples were visiting the US for the first time from Europe. The service was the best I have ever experienced at any price,... More

Seafood is great. Oyster sand shellfish are the best. Steaks are fabulous and Lobsters are perfect.. Born and raised in NYC and this is a great midwestern venue for a transplanted New Englander.

We had a cocktail at the bar before being seated for dinner. Knocking one star in my review because the bartender and hostess were both a little snarky; however, in their defense, it WAS restaurant week and so they were very, very busy. The two-person booths in the dining room are intimate and worth waiting for! Wine list and cocktails... More

Wow! We had an amazing experience. Food, service, atmosphere...this place has it all. It is expensive, but you get what you pay for! We had the Seared Tenderloin With Butter Poached Lobster Tails and it was a taste sensation. Don't miss this place if you want a first class meal in Minneapolis!

I've been to this restaurant a number of times over the years. It is always good. The atmosphere is about what you might expect from the name. Dark wood, paintings of famous local politicians and the like. Comfy booths. A comfortable spot. The steaks are, of course, very good. Not quite as mega-big-steakhouse as some other places -- which works... More

Rich mahogany, sumptuous leather and cool marble set the stage for incomparable dining in the Hennepin Theatre District. Just blocks from the Target Center, you’ll finddry aged beef that’s always right on the mark. No wonder Zagat Survey wrote, “awesome steaks served by the pros are the order of the day.”
