“Nice Lunch at the Capital Grille”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

On our last day in Minneapolis, we were looking for somewhere to have a leisurely lunch before heading out to the airport. Staying in downtown, this restaurant is a good option.
They open for lunch and provide a special lunchtime menu which offers great value.
Staff were very friendly and the service was excellent.
I had the lobster/crab burger with truffle fries which was excellent, whilst others in our party had the lobster roll with salt and vinegar chips and a cup of clam chowder - again these were very good. The seared scallops with corn risotto was also very good.
We did not partake from the wine list but it looked fairly extensive - instead we all had cold beers. Again all these were very good.
So overall a nice lunch in pleasant surroundings with great service. The added bonus being that the prices charged for lunch are good value.

The reviews left me with high expectations, but the service was terrible and the food was short of spectacular.

“Excellent food, excellent service, excellent ambiance ”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

We hadn't stopped in here for a while given the number of newer places opening and closer to home, but we decided to come back after a 2 year hiatus. It was worth it. Service was very professional, responsive and friendly. Every dish was excellent--lobster pop overs, special Brussels sprout salad, lobster bisque, filet and hash browns. Our fabulous waiter read our mind and brought us a creme brûlée before we even asked (at no charge!). The waiter really knew his business about how to provide great service. We tried the summer wine pairing menu which was great.
We'll come back more often. Either the place has improved a lot or it just slipped our mind.

“Best lunch ever!”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

For a birthday celebration, three of us gals took light rail downtown from our sleepy hamlet, St. Paul. While walking, we checked posted menus and the lobster rolls at Grille pulled us in. We were treated like royalty. By everyone. The lobster rolls and watermelon salad were perfect. And beautiful. Thank you Dave W., for making our celebration so much fun. And for the delicious complimentary dessert.
