Nice, cozy atmosphere. Good service. Decent wine list. Excellent filet mignon. Flavorless Chilean sea bass. Superb Brussels sprouts and potato au gratin.

The Capital Grille in Minneapolis is consistently outstanding. The food is always good and the wait staff superb. We love the valet parking - the valet staff treat you like royalty. The location next to the State Theater is a bonus - fabulous to eat before/after a performance. The Capital Grille staff are sensitive to your needs - if you... More

Our server, Todd, provided the best, most personalized service I've ever experienced dining downtown Minneapolis! Fun, friendly, informative, attentive and went above and beyond to make our couples night out a dining experience not just dinner! The food was good, not great. Oysters on half shell actually were great! Lobster bisque, average. Bone-in filet, good. I had the NY au... More

Service is impeccable, professional and friendly. We have had some problems with rare steaks, they take care of it and if its not to your liking they will make you a new one. This problem is very few and far between. We have also had a group Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings the restaurant is packed, reservations. WE have... More

Top of the line service from the moment you walk in.......until you walk out the door. The wait staff makes you feel like you are the only table they have. Attention to detail was fantastic.

Meals that were recommended were great choices: Kona-coated steak and the salmon were delish, serving size was smaller with the salmon,that I felt for the money. Our chocolate dessert was exquisite. This was several years ago when we enjoyed this evening and before the date they allowed me to choose here!

Tough to beat. Service isn't the fastest, because it's busy. It's busy because the food is great quality and the portions are large. Great value!

The Capital Grille consistently has the best prepared food and the best service in town. I go for lunch, dinner and before games. Three favorites are the Waygu beef sliders, calamari with hot peppers and lobster bisque soup. You won't go wrong here.

A group of 10 people, all meals on time and together. Staff is exceptional - making sure water was filled, table was clean, without hovering.

This was our first time to Capital Grill. The service was impeccable. The food was very good and hot. Although the steaks were delicious - I believe there is one other place in Minneapolis that is better. That is the only reason I rated it 4 stars. Great location and a great place for a special night out. Two thumbs... 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.”
