“Breakfast and dinner”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Breakfast was yummy and filling. The specialty Jack Daniels sandwich was great. Did not care for the sock sausage.
Had a prefix valentines dinner really enjoyed the duck breast.

“Gourmet and Locally Sourced”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

The hotel/restaurant owns its own farm only four miles from downtown Nashville. It seems like the wait staff works on the farm as well because often, when I comment on the freshness and quality of the produce, they seem to have first-hand knowledge of the current crop. Servers are very knowledgeable regarding the preparation of dishes (on this visit I ordered the duck breast and the server explained that it was cooked in the sous vide and the cold smoked - and it was spectacular) and are always happy to make recommendations and help me navigate the menu with regards to my gluten allergy. I would seriously travel to Nashville just to eat at this restaurant.

“More "wonderfulness" added to our stay at the Hermitage.”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

When making reservations a few weeks before, I informed them we would be celebrating my daughter's birthday. Fresh rose petals were scattered atop our table. Food was excellent and perfect for a special occasion. Tip: Dinner for two without wine or liquor was $90-not including gratuity.

“Best Service and Best Good”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

I used to be in the restaurant business for 4 years, traveled the world, and have been fortunate enough to enjoy nice meals everywhere I go. The Capitol Grille hands down has been one of my favorite restaurants I've ever dined at. The service was impeccable, the wine list was fantastic, and to top it off the food was absolutely amazing. To elaborate on this:
The Service was some of the best I've ever had. I never had to worry about my glass being empty, they were spot on with the timing of the food, and they did not interrupt conversation once.
The food was "to die for." The steaks were cooked absolutely perfect and the rest of the meal was well more than I expected! Fantastic place for a nice, quite, and intimate setting. Will return next time I'm back in town.
