“Excellent Service and Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

Made reservations and they asked upfront if it was for a special occasion, which was our anniversary. They had a very nice table set for us decorated for our anniversary and they all greeted us with a very warm welcome. Our server Steve Lagarde did an amazing job recommending wines and food. I ordered a porcini rubbed steak which was cooked perfectly rare and my wife ordered the Chillean Sea Bass which was very good.

Steve was very attentive and had great table manners making some small talk during our wait for food. He noticed us trying to take a self picture with our cell and he offered to take the picture. What we found odd though was he also took a picture with his camera ?? Of course we didn't catch on ...at the end of dinner service they printed the picture and put it on a card for us to take home. That was a really nice way to end the dinner on top of the anniversary desert for us. On our next trip we will definitely go back.

“Exquisite Service!”

Our server, I believe his name was Scott, was very professional and personable. My husband's Delmonico was probably the best steak of his life. We look forward to visiting The Capital Grille again.

“Lovely meal, very good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

We went to the Capital Grille for a night of celebration. Our server, Laura was so very helpful and was very prompt. My kids really enjoyed the ambiance of the Capital Grille. My mother in law and the kids ordered steak. There is a menu for children which includes the option for an 8 oz filet.
The mashed potatoes were very creamy and smooth. The serving was large enough for more than our party of 4.
We each ordered dessert which we picked up after we attended a performance at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center across the street. The cheesecake and fresh berries and the chocolate hazelnut cake did not disappoint. The flourless chocolate expresso cake was slightly bitter. The trio of handcrafted ice cream with cookies, is a dish we would not order again. The cinnamon ice cream has a slightly sweet flavor, We liked that flavor very much. We did not receive the cookies, so I can not comment on that portion of the dish.
Laura was able to hold our desserts and left overs for us to pick up after the show. If attending an event at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, show your server the tickets, you will receive the calamari appetizer, gratis. We also utilized the free valet parking as well. We will certainly return to the Capital Grille in the future.
