Fine dining facility and everything according to our group was first rate and cooked to perfection. My balsamic Glazed Rib Eye was perfectly cooked as ordered and tasted incredible well worth the visit. Dessert berries with creme anglais well received by all.Great selection of fine malt whisky. Not cheap but that's to be expected for this standard.

We wanted steak and that is why we chose this place. We were not disappointed. The New York cut and the filet mignon we ordered were perfect, together with good Negronis. Our waiter John (with a bear, just in case there is another one) was excellent and contributed greatly to the pleasure of a great meal. Special mention to the... More

My wife recently took a close friend here for lunch. Because they always ask ahead of time if you are celebrating anything special, she told them it was a birthday lunch. When they arrived the table had Birthday graffiti sprinkled over it and they surprised them with a complimentary delicious dessert. The service is always outstanding as is the food.... More

I'm always on the lookout for a good steak place so we decided to try the capital Grille. It had good atmosphere but my steak that I ordered medium was almost well done and by the time I got it it was almost cold. I can cook a better steak at my house. This place is expensive too. We will... More

First off, if you are expecting Longhorn quality (yuck) or prices then go to Longhorn. Capital Grill is expensive. However, the food is excellent and the service is top notch. Steaks are dry aged and prepared to perfection. The restaurant offers a good selection of steak and seafood. Most beef selections center around the New York cut. Side dishes are... More

The food is very expensive but the quality is very good. The food ought to be top notch for its price. There are other restaurants where you can get the same level of service and quality for less. It was a good dining experience, but there is plenty of competition for fine dining that does not cost $100/person (and we... More

It is truly regrettable hearing about the difficulty we had getting your husband's steak cooked perfectly. You were celebrating his birthday and would have envisioned everything being perfect so you could have enjoyed your meals together. It is equally concerning you were inadvertently charged for dessert; as you mentioned, this is usually provided with our compliments dessert. We apologize you... More
