“Excellent Food, Service and Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Went for Valentine's dinner Sunday during a long weekend visit to Minneapolis. We arrived after the theater crowd had left so it was very quiet. Beautiful room, excellent service and the food was perfectly prepared. It may be a bit expensive but it's definitely a case of getting what you pay for. Definitely worth the splurge for a special occasion.
We reserved on Open Table and it was seamless.

“Great service for a solo diner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

Just got done with dinner at Capital Grille. So enjoyable. I've eaten at the downtown Chicago location numerous times and always found it to be wonderful. Here I am, on a business trip in Minneapolis, needing to dine alone. Where to go? After a lengthy search, I realize there is a CG only three blocks from my hotel. I had one of the best servers ever - Nicole - who was an absolute joy on a frigid night. She was so cheerful, knowledgeable, and mindful of me wanting to enjoy my wine with my book :) Highly recommend to anyone - food is outstanding, service is impeccable.

“Prices are steep”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

Ok experience Be prepared to shell out some major $$$ to eat here. Food is good, but not sure worth the extravagant pricing. For a special evening, it would be a good choice.

“Restaurant Week Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

I'm so glad that the Capital Grille participates in this event. The menu and service are outstanding as usual for less than half the normal price. So please remember to tip based on what you would normally spend there on a meal. The staff here are all super!
