Description: In the heart of Country Club Plaza and the mind of the true steak aficionado. The “city of fountains” is overflowing with luck as it is also the city of our dry aged, hand cut beef. Come see why one Ingram’s critic wrote, “I was speechless.” Two new private dining rooms now give you a grand choice of five in which to be speechless yourself.

Capital Grille has an amazing atmosphere and the food is out of this world. Their service is perfect and their "Stoli Doli" martini is a Capital masterpiece. There is no bad table in the house. I have never had a bad experience at Capital!

This is the place if you want a great steak and great service.
It can be a bit pricey, so we only go on special occasions, but when we do I look forward to it for weeks.
We just dined there last week, the filet with butter poached lobster was PERFECT, and yes the flourless espresso cake is a MUST!

My fiance and I went there for dinner on 5/24. We have been there before and we find this to be a GREAT steakhouse and has to be one of the finest restaurants in the midwestern US. The food, service, and atmosphere are first class. It can be pricey with drinks...but remember this is about as good as it gets. It is located in the Country Club Plaza area of KC.

Outstanding! Once you walk in until you walk out. Top to Bottom, The bar is fantastic, Service is above any other place we have been on the Plaza,and the food always fantastic. When We go we always ask for Kyle Kinkade and he has alway been top notch! We have had other servers and always had great service! We visit 3 to 4 times a month

Drinks and Bartender: 5-Stars. Perfect Manhattans and Martinis. Bartender stopped by our table later to check on us. Classy.

Food Quality: 4-Stars. Caviar fresh, but lame presentation. Caprese Salad OK, but only two lonely slices of Mozzerella. Porterhouse steak done perfectly. Tenderloin and Lobster excellent with large pieces of lobster claw. Au Gratin potato side-dish fantastic. We drank our dessert.

Service: 5-Stars. Waitress was a doll: sunny personality, attentive, but not overbearing.

Ambiance: 3 Stars (The place has started to look a touch ragged-the dining room chairs suck and must be designed to turn tables quickly, because they are not "sit back, have a steak and a cocktail" comfortable as an upscale restaurant should have. (Insist on a booth).

Also, I'm all about casual dress, but perhaps they could enforce a minimal dress code? There were people there in shorts and KU t-shirts (Is this Applebee's?).

I realize that KC is not NYC, but it shouldn't be too much effort to throw on a polo shirt and a pair of dockers to take your wife out to dinner. No wonder the KC ladies were so easy to impress back when I was single.
