A somewhat disappointing kickoff to KC Restaurant Week. We both had the steak for our main entree, and it was COLD. Like it had been cooked an hour before, then just sat on a counter waiting for someone to order it. Dessert was creme brûlée, and it was ice cold also. That may be the way they do it, but... More

My husband and I had lunch at the Capitol Grille as part of Restaurant Week. We had the great good luck to have Eric as our server. Impeccable does not even begin to describe his level of service! He made sure that all our needs were attended to, guided us when we had questions about the menu, and checked with... More

A group of us scheduled lunch during "Restaurant Week" so reservations are hard to come by and the restaurants are packed. Our reservation was at 12:45 and we were promptly seated. Our server, Dave, immediately came to the table for our drink orders. Dave is fabulous! We all ordered our lunch (salmon for 4 of us and the burger for... More

Our family has eaten at The Capital Grille for anniversaries and Got Me Day...a celebration of our daughter's adoption. It is fine dining at its best! A little pricey but worth it. The wait staff is also so attentive to detail.

I first visited this restaurant thru restaurant week. It was really packed, but didn't affect the quality of the food, neither the service. One of the females manager brought us a wonderful lobster soup beside our soup already included. Meat was exactly how we ordered.

A meal at the Capitol grill is always an event to anticipate and savor. Their dry aged beef is beyond compare. Impeccable service, wonderful atmosphere, and a great menu. Expensive but worth it ... a great value during restaurant week

Capital Grille is basically just a chain restaurant that serves the expensive food and drink. As a frequent visitor to Kansas City, I much prefer the local places and BBQ joints compared to a corporate place like this. Was here on a busy Thursday night, and the place was pretty packed. We just wanted a drink, so we stayed in... More

We tried Capital Grille during restaurant week. We arrived for an early dinner, we had reservations and were seated by friendly staff in less than two minutes. Our server, Joe came by to introduce himself, explain the menu and ask if we wanted to start with a cocktail. We asked for the wine list and he brought over a tablet... More

Visited The Capital Grille for lunch this week and was seating to a frazzled, unorganized waiter. After receiving our drink order, we had to flag him down to order our lunch. Our Lobster Bisque was lukewarm and our food took quite awhile-about 25 minutes. This was confusing, as the restaurant was not busy. We had to ask for our bread... More

Expect to pay top dollar for an amazing steak. The wines are very expensive, but the list is impressive. I found our waiter to be quite pushy with the ordering, but not being an investment banker myself, I expect he was used to far wealthier clientele. But to clarify, he was still polite and very professional. The dry aged KC... More

In the heart of Country Club Plaza and the mind of the true steak aficionado. The “city of fountains” is overflowing with luck as it is also the city of our dry aged, hand cut beef. Come see why one Ingram’s critic wrote, “I was speechless.” Two new private dining rooms now give you a grand choice of five in which to be speechless yourself.
