After complimentary valet parking, I recommend starting with the Stoly Doly, their signature cocktail. Follow that with exceptional crab cakes which are a combination of lump crab and lobster or get fantastic fried calamari with peppers. Steaks are great but don't hesitate to order the seafood such as tuna or sea bass. The sides are all mouth watering. There is... More

One of the best restaurants in Baltimore. The manager, Jimmy, is terrific, and has the place running as a well-oiled machine. One of the few restaurants that knows how to cook meat as ordered by the patron. Wait staff also is terrific.

The Capital Grille is located across the street from the Baltimore Aquarium. What a perfect place to enjoy an elegant lunch. The atmosphere is lovely, with white tablecloths and a "club" kind of decor. The service was impeccable. The lunch menu had some nice options. I ordered a salmon salad, and my son ordered a chicken ceasar salad. We both... More

I can always count on a wonderful meal when dining at the Capital Grille. Big delicious salads followed by steaks second to none. Perfectly prepared medium rare and melt in your mouth tender beef. Service is always on the excellent side with everything done smoothly and seemlessly and unobtrusively. Hard to beat this restaurant all around.

We took some friends during Restaurant Week. We'd been here before and it had been great. So I was really looking forward to a classic steak dinner. But even my lofty expectations were exceeded. I always value service over food quality. And both were top-notch, but the service was best-in-class. I appreciate the well-dressed staff, and the way they handle... More

I only eat at The Capital Grille during Baltimore's Restaurant Week because lunch is a good value. My friend and I were seated immediately and waited on immediately. Our waiter was superb in explaining everything. We started out with lobster bisque which is was rich and delicious with lots of lobster pieces in it. My entree was sliced sirloin with... More

We always are so delighted when The Capital Grille participates in Restaurant Week. We went on the first day and it was just perfect – 4 of us dined. Mark W., our server, is the consummate waiter. He is there, but not obtrusive. He takes excellent care of us. We each had something different to start; Wedge with blue cheese... More

I went for dinner on a Sunday afternoon with my tween boys and we had a great meal. They were very impressed with the surroundings and even commented it more than once. The restaurant's decoration is very high end, with dark woods and dim lighting. They offer you white/black linen napkins depending on your pants. Very professional waiters, good food,... More

My husband and I came here to enjoy the Baltimore Restaurant Week menu, and we had a fantastic time! We were early, but seated right away. We had a wonderful and attentive waiter, Patrick. We ordered from the RW menu, but obviously had wine, and added a side dish to share. Note: the RW menu does not include any sides.... More
