Description: That other Naples, some 5,357 miles away, may boast a rich history of art and culture, but it has the misfortune of not being the Naples that is home to The Capital Grille. Lucky Neapolitans in Florida can satisfy their culinary cravings for dry aged steaks, fresh seafood and world-renowned wines without venturing beyond The Mercato.Buon appetito.

Great food and service with the exception of one time when we waited 2 hours for dinner. It was a high school graduation party and I guess the kitchen screwed up. Other than that, the food is excellent. The mac and cheese is the best in the world.

We were told if you want a good steak go to Capital Grill. They were right the have great steak. The atmosphere is wonderful. You feel important being there.
But,
Don't go if you don't have a reservation. The wait is always understated. Our last visit we spent 11/2 hours at the bar waiting for our 30 minute promised table. Management took care of us eventually and did everything they could to correct the sitsuation.
But,
Consistency is what I want in an eating establishment. I haven't found it any Capital Grill. Had a very bad experience in Miami one year. Returned the next year and it was good, not exceptional. But, again a great steak. Service marginal.
I guess I am a sucker for a good steak and keep returning. If I find one better they will lose me as a fan.
I want it all. Location, ambience, service, good food, and excellent value.

We heard we wouldn't be disappointed on a Capital Grille splurge. Never being disappointed at Peter Luger's and admittedly prejudiced, we tried it. Ambience warm, server seemed OK until she opened the wine dropped the cork on the floor, & put cork on the table. Ugh! Caesar & wine good. Looked forward to Porterhouse medium rare. My non-complaining husband alerted the server the meat was more like well done. Mine too! Veggies sat. All sorry - replacements would be perfect. Wrong! Mine still overlooked, hubbies closer and both had ZERO flavor - tasted like steamed meat. Ate a couple of bites bagged the rest. Sandwiches?? The fact that we haven't done that speaks volumes. What a disappointing waste of our hard earned money.

Our evening started out with a most pretentious waitress introducing herself and "instructing" us on how this restaurant operates, ie portions large, specials, how things will be cooked. She told us that every lady at the table would receive a rosé at the end of the evening, that she would be taking a photo of our group and each couple would receive a copy. Finally, the confetti decorations placed in the table were there because we had told them it was a birthday celebration and she would be bringing the birthday girl a special dessert at the end. It was long-winded and totally unnecessary, as she could have just made it feel a bit less rigid by giving us thus information as the evening went on. (note: we were not unappreciative of the nice touches, just didn't need the instruction manual that came with them) The food was just ok. For $45 the piece of steak our birthday girl had was way over cooked. And the Chilean Sea Bass, though very good, was $42 with a few greens sprinkled on the plate. From appetizers to dessert everything was very high priced. Ok, for a business dinner but we thought too high for a simple birthday celebration. As the evening progressed a table of six men was seated directly behind us (so close the one gentleman's' chair was touching ours) . They had obviously just spent a while at the bar and were unduly loud. The
staff should have had better sense and put this group in one of the other rooms rather than the room we were in which was a few small groups chatting quietly. These fellows had every right to have their fun, but again, management did not judge the situation very well and our group ended up being unable to hear each other for the last 45 minutes of our dinner and could not get out of our chairs without bothering the other table to move,
We have been to several of these restaurants in the past and used them strictly for business events. However, that is the only recommendation that I could give to this Capital Grille, if you can put it on your company credit card, then this is your place. Too many other wonderful restaurants in Naples to waste your time on this Capital Grille.
