“Downtown Dining Week--Best Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

We have eaten at Capital Grilles in other cities and the food is always good. This week is Downtown Dining Week. For $30 per person we had salad, filet, choice of sides and dessert. Everything was outstanding as usual. This is a great value for those of you who haven't experienced it--but hurry!

“Very nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

I've been to this Restaurant a couple of times in recent years & have not been disappointed. It's not what I'd call cheap, but I do consider it god value. Good Steak, good Wine, good service.

This place was recommended by our hotel as the best place in town for a customer dinner, and it didn't disappoint. The food was fantastic, the service was impeccable. Would highly recommend.

“Great option for business dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

The last two times I was in Milwaukee for business, we went to dinner as a group to Capital Grille. Each time, we had a great experience.

Location - downtown within walking distance to most hotels and businesses. Valet parking. Service - Excellent. Food - Delicious. Options for everyone from vegetarian pasta (yes, at a steak house), to ahi tuna, to many varieties of steak. Get the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella with tomatoes appetizer Wine - Excellent wine list with a wide variety of prices. Dessert - Get the coconut pie or the balsamic strawberries with vanilla ice cream. Trust me on this.

*NOTE* - Their definition of medium rare is what everyone else defines as rare. Unless you want blood on your plate, ask for medium.

“Great & personal service & good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

The service was almost too much as the waitress talked very much. But overall very good food (big portions) and great experience.
