“Best celebration ever!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

We've been to a lot of nice restaurants for special occasions, but our experience with Capital Grille was the best! The manager Christopher is top notch! He went above and beyond to make our daughter feel special (college graduation). Our waiter, David, did an incredible job of being attentive, but not intrusive. The food was just as everyone ordered, and our table of 9 had a beautiful ending to an exciting but exhausting day!

“Always good food and service”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

They have a great menu, serve great steak, and the service is always fantastic. Recommend the wine from fisher vineyards they have. I have been to that winery and it's fantastic smaller label wine.

“Disappointed in an Old Favorite”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

We went for a special occasion. The table was decorated with sparkling confetti and the dessert presented to the graduate was a lovely presentation with "congratulations graguate" written in chocolate. Our waiter Nick was excellent with very good knowledge about wines that we asked about. His service was prompt,went into detail when we questioned him about the different steak toppings. HOWEVER......One person in our oarty sent back her steak because it was overcooked. A new one was served that was probably still mooing. She took a couple of bites, did not want to send it back again and just took it home to be re-cooked. Another person's poprterehouse was on the tough side and overcooked too,but he kept it as he didn't want to wait. The chopped salad was sent back as having an "off" flavor, rather like the dressing was poured without shaking it up. I have to say that last night was a big disappointment as up until last night, we never had a meal that was less than wonderful.

“Great Steak! - Great Atmoshpere! - Great Staff! - Capital Grill”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

An unbelieveable experience with every visit. Honest.

My wife and I made reservations a week in advance and we were asked if it was a special occasion. We told them it was our anniversary.

Well when we arrived and were shown to our table it was sprinkled with tiny hearts and we were given champagne flutes and they took our picture and inserted it a folder for us to keep.

All this and we hadn't even eaten yet.

The steaks though... Whichever you pick are delicious and perfectly grilled.

We had the Steak au Poivre which is made with a crushed pepper top and a cream and sherry sauce!!!!

Capital Grill is our idea of a steakhouse and it might be yours as well.
