“Dine here for special occasions that are sure to be memorable”
Reviewed June 11, 2011

The wait staff here are professionals. We had our tenth anniversary dinner here and were greeted with roses on the table, a gift basket and very special treatment by our waiter. We were always addressed by our names and treated like movie stars. We were treated to 2 glasses of wine "on the house". We still spent a lot of money but we felt that it was worth it to feel so special for an evening away from every-day life.

“Magnifique !”
Reviewed December 8, 2010

On 12/07/2010, we went into the nearest restuarant Capital Grille in Tampa at the International Plaza to get out of the cold weather. What an accident.
Lunch was excellent. The Snapper with polenta special, and the sirloin steak were as good as any restuarant we have visited. The server, John Wallace was very knowledgable and a consummate professional.
An excellent meal, and we have just found out they have many other restuarant locations around the USA.
MAGNIFIQUE ! We just returned from a visit to France and Rome, Italy, and this is still a fantastic restuarant.

“Divine”
Reviewed August 17, 2010

My new favorite splurge restaurant - and even better than the original location in DC. The porcini rubbed delmonico was absolutely outstanding, as were the sides and desert. Expensive and worth it. Service was impeccable.

“Loved it.....”
Reviewed January 8, 2010

We ate here on 12/26/09. It was wonderful. I have to get better at remembering names,because the service was so nice. The food delicious. I sometimes hear people dismiss the Capital Grille because it is a "chain" restaurant. Well,while my fiancee and I love food and love to eat out,I don't think we are "foodies". What I mean is,I love my steak and potatoes. I loved my wedge salad. Loved the french onion soup. Straightforward food,cooked perfectly,served professionally. Thats why we love the Capital Grille. We will be back.
