Made a reservation for a nice meal at the Capitol Grille. For starters, with Hennepin Avenue all torn up, it is almost impossible to get to this restaurant. We had to walk through a construction zone to get to the front door. When we arrived,...there were only two or three other groups seated in the entire restaurant and the maître d’ who met us at the door and escorted us into the restaurant wanted to put us right next (as in less than 6 feet) to all the other diners. Because of COVID, and since the restaurant was essentially empty, I asked that we be separated and put in another section where there were no other people. The maître d’ did so, but at first he balked but then did so begrudgingly. I could tell he didn’t like it at all. We then had a nice meal. I’ve dined here many times, and as usual, both the food and the table service were terrific. However, on the way out of the restaurant - after spending a substantial amount of money - I said “thanks for having us” to the maître d’ and all I got from him in return was a grunt. He obviously still was miffed about my request to seat us at a table different from where he wanted to put us. In a restaurant of this quality, I find that kind of treatment of a customer disrespectful and unprofessional. And with so many other outstanding steakhouses in this town, and each one fighting for their lives, I won’t be traversing over a construction zone to return to this one anytime soon. Or ever. If you’re from out of town, go to old school Murray’s or iconic Manny’s instead. Neither are chains, the food is better at both, and they will treat you like they appreciate your company and business.More

We visited last Saturday and from the minute we walked in the door we were treated like VIPS. The food was great and the table service was very attentive and fast. It's nice to see a place that appreciates customers as much as Capitol Grill....I would highly recommend.More

The Capital Grill just went to the top of our list. The wine selection is outstanding, the service wonderful, and our meal excellent! We could not have had a better experience .

This has become my annual birthday haunt. It never disappoints. Servic was excellent, properly attentive in just the right ways. Our appetizer was crab cakes, with a nice relish and their wonderful assorted breads and crax. This was all very tasty. Each of us had...a signature steak, cooked to personal perfection. Steaks here are superb. I'm a good cook and often grill a fine steak at home, and so m6 standards are high! We shared mushroom and asparagus, as sides. Sounds like nothing special, but indeed it was all VERY special, and perfectly executed. With wine, our tab was a bit over $100. Each, but oh, so worth it! Can't wait to return.More

Came here with my 5 year old grandson and he loved the burgers. The ambiance was very nice. Our server was very helpful when my little one needed more milk after a accidental spill.

We had a reservation for our Anniversary for the wago and wine in the bar this Fall and ended up being seated in the windy doorway / window. Despite making several requests to be moved to one of the open tables away from the doorway...we were not accommodated. We have dined here before + really like the food but please note that the bar area and service is something to avoid. Ultimately, we walked out and went to a different restaurant. We've been here other times as well and other Capital Grills so this was really disappointing.More

Wonderful food and service. Best beef in the Twin Cities. Service tremendous. This is a most memorable restaurant but very expensive. Valley parking is a must. Great wine selection and generous cocktails.

Had Thanksgiving dinner here with family. You could have the traditional Thanksgiving dinner (turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, string beans) or order anything off the menu. One of us got the French onion soup as well and it was outstanding with lots of gooey...gooey cheese. Service was excellent.More

Maybe for appetizers or lunch but no, entrees can go up into the 40's....
