“Great for Date Night or Small Groups!”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

I love Capital Grille, their menu and service is fabulous! It is tucked away right of Michigan Ave and had a great atmosphere for our holiday event. We had about 20 guests and our space was perfect. Secondly, I have had a perfect date night here as well. Their wine selection is fabulous and the service is amazing. Love Capital Grille!

“Anniversary dinner with family ”
Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

From the time we entered the place til we left, they treated us like gold. Phil our waiter was extremely knowledgable, and courteous. Food was excellent, but be prepared to spent $100 per person on avg. For a special event it was well worth it.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed December 14, 2013 via mobile

Been there Friday night...easy to book on open table, warm welcome, great wine list from all over the place. We took a Nero davola from Sicily as starter calamari (aboundant portion) and onion soup both were great. As main course two simple bone in steak no dress, medium rare delicious...we had too much food to order a dessert. Overall experience to recommend.

“Great steaks”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

Dry aged steaks were perfect. The service was excellent. This was an expensive place for a family. With dessert(made in house) two sides of wonderful mashed potatoes and four drinks our meal was over $300.00. My teenage granddaughters loved it and want to go back.

“Good steak!”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

Our waiter was very nice and made recommendations to us for ordering. My wife and I both had steak, one sirloin and one filet. They were both perfectly. The au gratin potatoes were great, as well, but they are definitely big enough for 3 to share.
