My wife and I celebrated our 37th anniversary at CG and had a mixed experience. Even on a Thursday evening, and very high prices, it was a busy and loud dining room. With reservations however, we were escorted to our table immediately upon arriving. The table was adorned with little heart sprinkles and a happy anniversary card...subtle, nice touches. The...

We ate here for my daughter's birthday week. Tabitha, our server was wonderful. She brought out a birthday card, which made my daughter's day. My husband said his Chilean sea bass was the best fish he has ever eaten. I could eat the French onions soup and creamed corn by the truckload. They gave my daughter a birthday dessert plate....

I had the veal and it was not prepared right. I was able to order something else that was fine, but wasn't great.

Capital Grill is a place you can almost always know you will get a good meal, but when you get an amazing one it deserves recognition. From the hostess who didn't find our reservation, but flawlessly sat us in a booth to the Busser who politely brought bread and water! We were coming off a very bad experience at a... More

Ordered the rib eye medium well and it was perfect. Huge wine selection. Excellent service by the hostess and staff. Very pricey but at least the experience was equally priceless. Valet parking is available for those who do not wish to park and walk a couple of hundred feet.

The restaurant had valet parking - always a plus. The wine selection was fabulous. Our waiter was not very friendly. He was very professional, but not a smiley kind of guy...just all business. Upscale dining with a great atmosphere. The Grand Plateau was perfect! It had Jumbo Lump Crab, Fresh Maine Lobster, Shrimp Cocktail, and Oysters on the Half Shell.... More

I decided to take my wife out for a nice dinner to celebrate her during national nurses week, she's a nurse btw. From when we walked in to when we left we felt like they valued our business. Because I told them before hand why we were there, they actually provided two complimentary glasses of champagne and a small complimentary... More
