I went to the Capital Grille in KC for a business dinner/meeting. The service was excellent as you would expect. The food was great but I have had better at other Capital Grille's. The food was by no means bad - it was great - 9 out of 10.

We walked in here unawares during Restaurant Week in KC. It was crazy busy but we managed to snag a little table in the bar where there is open seating. In spite of the wildly chaotic looking scene we got really good food without a huge wait and absolutely flawless service. What a treat!

I recently dined here for Restaurant Week and was blown away by how incredible it was. I had been to other Capital Grilles, but this one is by far the best. Saul was a wonderful waiter who gave fantastic recommendations for wine. The filet was perfectly cooked to a medium rare, with the added herb butter giving it a wonderful... More

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

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.
