We went there for our anniversary dinner. We both ordered aged sirloin steaks with wild mushrooms and brussel sprouts. The steak was so tender with the fullest Unami flavor. We were also treated to a tour of their pristine kitchen and walk-in fridge, where the aging process took place. Chef Hans was so kind to show us his kitchen and... More

What a change in clientele, breakfast at Frank's diner in Kenosha this morning. Blue jeans and work shirts the norm, now suits and ties the norm. They however have something in common, great food and good service. The prices are without a doubt geared to different clientele, Frank's to the "blue collars" and Capital Grill to the "White collars". So... More

We both enjoyed our $35 Downtown Dining dinner at the Capitol Grille -- I had the Strip Steak / husband had the Filet Mignon. Clam Chowder was good, as was the Creme Brulee and the Chocolate Cake. Service was perfect. Nice place.

Downtown dining and it doesn't get any better than the "Capitol" with its impeccable interior, unhurried service and perfect meal! I don't shy away from restaurant chains intentionally, but there are so many choices that I forget what a gem is right on Wisconsin Ave! Valet parking is the way to go, a friendly greeting at the front door, and... More

We were a party of two for dinner Memorial Day evening, at Capital Grille on West Wisconsin Avenue in downtown Milwaukee. The atmosphere was wonderful - understated yet sophisticated. The host/maître 'd was very welcoming and seated us immediately. Our server, Anne H, took wonderful care of us. She was friendly, helpful and attentive. One of us ordered the New... More

Although it's a bit on the expensive side of the spectrum, the food was pretty incredible. The service, too, is top-notch (and the free valet parking is a plus, given the downtown location). And then there's the wine list...unfortunately we were in a bit of a rush for an after-dinner event, otherwise we would have loved to be able to... More

If you have eaten at Capital Grille elsewhere, then you won't be disappointed here. It is very accessible to the Convention Center and downtown hotels.

I stopped in for lunch on a business trip. The bartender suggested the burger, and it was complete perfection. Excellent service, pleasant conversation and didn't have to eat again for the rest of the day. Definitely recommend.
