“Not worth the $$$”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

My partner made a dinner reservation on open table. The hostess tried to sit us at the bar, that did not work. Then she tried a table right in the middle of traffic & near kitchen, my partner complained then we were finally seated at a decent table. Finally, had the special of the night (seafood) It was terrible. The lobster Mac & cheese was good and my partner had a steak was good as well. Maybe my mistake for having seafood @ a steakhouse. Very snobby overall not worth the $200

“Always delish!”
Reviewed February 26, 2014 via mobile

CG is expensive, but the service and quality of the dishes is amazing. I had the Cobb salad and the steak was tender and cooked perfectly. Nicholas was our server last weekend and he was attentive and polite.

“The Capital!”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

This restaurant is without a doubt the Capital Grill's finest. We have enjoyed eating here over the last year 3 plus times. All entrées are always served perfect and the wine selection is outstanding . The seafood is always prepared perfectly, not to mention the steaks ......it's a must when in Tampa!

“Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed February 14, 2014 via mobile

Went here with family to celebrate a special occasion. Great atmosphere and food. The waiter we had was very attentive and friendly in helping us select wines. The calamari is awesome and probably the best I've had in recent memory. For my meal I order the special of the day which was a horseradish crusted steak that tasted great. I also had a bite of the Kona rubbed filet, which was equally as good. My family enjoyed the lobsters Mac and cheese while I wasn't as impressed, though not bad by any means.

This place would get my business more often if my wallet would let me. I enjoyed my meal at capital grille and I look forward to a return visit in the future.
