Very busy Saturday night. Service & Staff were excellent. Food quality was very good. Steaks were delicious, good cuts cooked to perfection. Overall great experience. Highly recommend to anyone interested in a special meal. Pricing reflects the quality of ingredients. Cheers!

The steak is amazing; the service wonderful; the environment fine. I guess I feel it is just really really expensive without being that interesting. Having said that, if you are looking for a high end steak house, this is the one I would suggest in Pittsburgh.

We were greeted as soon as we walked in the door. We were a little bit early and they asked us if we wanted to be seated and we said yes. The hostess addresses us by name to the person whom sat us. We had the French Onion soup-huge crock, filets, bussel sprouts & au gratin potatoes. Everything was hot... More

I met a friend there for her birthday. food and service were excellent. Price was mid-range but it was in the afternoon. We didn't need a reservation, but if you're during the lunch rush I would suggest that you make one a week or so in advance.

Only had a drink and the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella appetizer. Too rich with the fried prosciutto and what tasted like the burnt part of a Nacho chip for bread but the drinks were good and the atmosphere was lovely. I would definitely want to try their dinner menu as the place is very inviting.

This is my favorite Capital Grille. I have been to others, and the service is not as great as the one in Pittsburgh. It can be hard to get a reservation some weekends, but it is worth calling early.

We had a private room and the service was excellent. Every dish perfectly prepared. Great place to go for a can't miss dinner for all. As always a pricey night out.

I eat at Capital Grilles across the US for my work but first time with my family and in Pittsburgh. Wonderful meal, handled gluten free requests smoothly as well as a great kids menu. The wine choices are very good, meals done exactly as ordered--the waiter was exceptional.

The wait staff were amazing. Very efficient and quietly did their jobs. We were there on Steeler Sunday and Steeler casual was the dress code! Oh, my! The food! Perfection! Steak melted in your mouth and done to order. Lamb chops were out of this world. Desserts are a "must have". Pricey but you will get more than your money's... More
