The capital Grille is top notch! My boyfriend and I were treated with friendly, yet extremely professional service. Our waiter, Greg, recommended his favorite dishes to help us each decide. I went with the seared Ahi Tuna, while my boyfriend decided on the lamb chops. We were both blown by our meals! Both were perfectly cooked and prepared. After our... More

By far our favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh. Expensive, yes...but truly worth it. We go every year for my wife's birthday and are never disappointed. This year we again participated in their Generous Pour event and it was excellent. The wine was generously flowing and they had excellent options. Definitely worth the expense for any occasion. Can't go wrong with the... More

Loved every bread they served. Lobster mac and cheese is to die for. Meats are unsurpassed. High end food and price.

Perhaps it's the predictability of a business meal at Capital Grille that's got to me. Sure the service, quality and presentation are what you'd expect from the upscale chain. Yet its venerable status quo is so challenged by all the young, precocious upstarts that we are blessed with in the city (and Lawrenceville in particular). If it's a vibe and... More

This is one of the best restaurants in Pittsburgh. The food is always something you talk about the next day and the service is always the best. I look forward to returning to Capital Grille many times in the future!

My party of three stopped in for dinner on a Friday night without a reservation but were promptly seated. The menu provides a grand selection of appetizers, entrees and sides. The service was impressive for a busy Friday evening. A few highlights: the shrimp cocktail are certainly jumbo, the spinach salad hit the spot and the famed lobster mac and... More
