“Most amazing food, service and atmosphere! Best Anniversary dinner!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

I can't recommend Capital Grille enough! Their food is to die for, their service is impeccable, their atmosphere is fantastic.

We went for our anniversary. They had rose petals and a signed card waiting for us at our table. We had the calamari (excellent) and two sirloins (massive and delicious) with potatoes au gratin (to die for). The server (Tammy!) was top notch. We were treated so well and wished happy anniversary many times. Our server sent us champagne free of charge and bought our dessert for our little celebration. I would say that, of the many amazing restaurants I've dined at in the past, this one is going to retain the #1 slot for a long time to come.

Go here for a special event and you won't be dissapointed!

“top pick in downtown Indy”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Services is impeccable. The food is very good, although my salmon on plank was a little bit on the raw sushi side. Wine selection is great and cocktails are good. the best part is the great service. I would take a business client to dinner here and they will be impressed. With a spouse split a steak and all sides. At 20 oz, it is worth it to split.

“Not good enough”
Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

We were a large party at a convention. Salads & appetizers took 1/2 hour & were less than stellar. Dressings tasted like bottled & the hot peppers on the calamari were out of a jar. The steaks took 2 hours to arrive & were cool when they did. We would not return.

“Classic Elegence”
Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

Classic decor with lots of hardwood and fine art. Upscale in every way. Exceptional customer service. The manager came to our table and personally apologized for not having one of the main courses we had ordered. Said the Ahi tuna was not up to their standard tonight to serve it. He comped one of our meals and gave us two complimentary sides. Even came back before we left made sure our meals were superb and apologized again.

I had the citrus salmon. It was cooked exactly as ordered and delightful for a fish entree. It came with a lobster on the side. The lobstewaged amazing flavor and cooked to perfection. My wife said the sliced filet was best shed ever had. The bone in Sirloin my mate had was huge thick and juicy.

The side of lobster Mac and cheese was Steller as was the augrautian potatoes. The appetizer calamari was spicy hot and amazing.

This place is spot on for quality and service. The price is what you should expect from the calibre of fine dining.

We were to full to enjoy a desert. This place is a home run. Can't wait to return.
