  • "This has been my second time going so far and the food was incredible. Service was top notch between the servers and managers so hospitable, and between me and my friends who went for lunch, planning a dinner there is currently in the works. Thanks for a great experience!"

  • "Dinner after show at. Hippodrome to celebrate husbands Birthday was awesome. From the greeting at the front door to the attentive wait staff the evening was amazing. We wanted for nothing. Brittany was awesome, very attentive. The timing of every aspect of our meal was impeccable. Can't wait to come back again. Thank you Capital Grill for exceeding my expectations!"

  • "I have had more than 7 meals at the restaurant. this one was mediocre. a lobster roll, where the roll was a bit stale and not a complement to the lobster meat. plus a watermelon salad where the arugula was dried out and watermelon missing from the salad. I have had many superb meals here and the restaurant was not crowded either that day. as one of the few white table dining options in the downtown, it is important not to take your customers for granted."

  • "The Capitol Grill is a cross between Ruth Chris and the Palm but better."

  • "The food was excellent! Hands down the best steak I've ever had. The service went above and beyond. The only downside was the yuppy rich folks who think they're better than everyone else who dine here. I immediately felt out of place just walking through the restaurant to be seated. Other than that, my fiance and I really enjoyed our "special occasion" experience at this higher end restaurant!"

  • "It's always chancy dining out during Baltimore Restaurant Week, especially in a large group, but our server Mark, handled our rowdy group with aplomp. The food was wonderful as always, and although the restaurant was a little noisier than usual we had no room to complain, as we were contributing to that noise."

  • "The Capital Grille is simply an outstanding restaurant. The food and service are some of the best in Baltimore, if not THE best. The steaks are beyond description, they are so good. And the wine list goes on forever--but does include some good but reasonably priced wines for those who are not on an expense account! All in all, it's exceptional experience, one that we only wish we could afford more often."

  • "This place treats you like a king. Had a great meal there on Friday night. The waiter was attentive, informed, and discrete. This location is in the Inner Harbor so you get all types of tourists and well appointed locals. The staff barely notices. They are there to serve you. I had my boring usual: Cesar, strip, and dessert. It was excellent. My wife had the tuna with ginger rice and it was outstanding."

  • "Overall, the restaurant was very good and the wine list was notable. However for the price, I was expecting the steak to be better."

  • "What a phenomenal experience, well balanced between the waiter and management. Oftentimes, managers simply go to tables and ask how things are and delegate. In our case, the manager rolled up his sleeves to help make the dining experience exceptional. Food tasted even better."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary there. From the time we walk through the door the excellent service stared. They made us feel special said our name check on us from table busser to general manager. The food was excellent and looked appealing. We will definitely come back again"

  • "The service and the food was excellent. Portion sizes were generous and my Delmonico steak was cooked to perfection. Everyone enjoyed the French onion soup, and I loved the clam chowder. This was a nice restaurant to celebrate a birthday. The atmosphere was lovely and the table was perfect, by the window."

  • "This is the first time the service was unacceptable. I took a friend there for lunch and the Brittany our server asked if we had a time restraint and I told her it my lunch hour...and she we will get out in time. We placed our they brought out the soup then it about 20-22 minutes for our plate lunch to come out one Lobster Pot Pie and the Scallops with Truffle Fries that were cold. The scallops were justed thrown on the place with no side and I had to asked were the tomatoes that I normally get with the my dish. I watched her bring out food to other tables that came in after us and it truly left a bad taste in mouth. Her and the manager apologized and offer complimentary desserts which we accepted. I hope this never happen again."

  • "We went to Capital Grille for Thanksgiving Dinner. It did not measure up to the normal food there which is always wonderful. The food was tasty but it was cold. The service was great, we always get the same waiter beucase he is so good. I think this was the 1st time they did a special dinner for Thanksgiving, I would not recommend it. I would however recommend the Mother's day Buffet if they have it. That is absolutely wonderful. They dont always have it each year, so if they do you should definitely take Mom there."

  • "I've been going to both the DC and Baltimore Capital Grille restaurants for years. Perhaps it was because we dined on a holiday (Valentine's day) but the food wasn't "perfect" this time, specifically the rice. Yes, that's right the rice. How could a high-end restaurant screw up rice? Good question. The rice was so hard it was obviously not cooked properly. I thought I chipped a tooth with the first bite I took. I mentioned it to the server and he was very quick about getting me new rice.. However the second batch as rice was just as bad as the first. At that point I pretty much gave up. I just ate my meal without rice. I can't say I'll be back any time in the near future, but I haven't completely written off Cap Grill."

  • "Our server was Marcus and what a gem. He was absolutely terrific. Whatever we asked, it waspleasantly taken care of. When we return, I will be sure to ask to be seated in a section where Marcus is working. Food excellent, there were terrific choices for Restaurant Week, a real treat."

  • "As super busy sisters we don't get many chances to get together for a classy night out. We thought restaurant week would be the perfect time. We chose Capital Grille for its fine dining. It went beyond our expectations in ambience, food and service. The high quality food was exquisite. We grew up in Baltimore and are happy to find such a classy place like Capital Grille in these parts."

The waiter & food were outstanding. And they gave us a lovely dessert to share in celebration of our big day."

  • "Our first time at Cap Grille, and simply put--everything was great. The food was delicious, the servers were always very attentive, and the restaurant was elegant inside. We went for restaurant week, so we were a little concerned about the portions/sizes/choices...but after we saw the menu those feelings quickly went away. Nice variety and good portion sizes."

  • "We had a Saturday night dinner at Capital Grille, which is a great scene. Call us the hoi polloi but we were there because of Restaurant Week and knew we were in for a special meal. They knew too, and still gave us our choice of table and friendly. outstanding service; we didn't feel like second class citizens. The food of course was excellent - as a former Midwesterner I'm always delighted to find someone who truly understands steak. Great wine by the glass selection. I would say if you appreciate fine dining, but can't afford it as much as you'd like, this is a wonderful place for that night out or lunch."

  • "A friend and I went here for lunch during Restaurant Week. We walked over in the rain and were greeted warmly and immediately had our coats and umbrellas checked (love that!). The restaurant week menu is one of the best in the area, though several regular menu items may tempt me back on a day I want to be spoiled a bit. As appetizers, I had the clam chowder which was filled w/clams and not overly thickened and she had a house salad. I had the steak salad (arugula, roasted red peppers, mozzarella cheese in a balsalmic dressing) and my friend had the house burger w/truffle fries. Both were wonderful and very filling. The service here is outstanding, the staff takes wonderful care of you. It's a deciding factor when I choose fine dining."

  • "This was our second visit to the Capital Grill and we may of made a mistake by going during restaurant week. Reason is the food was good but with the special menu it seemed a bit more like a fast food place and not the special occasion location we liked the first time. The food was still good and the wine list was great as was the restaurant week price but I do believe the food did suffer a bit from our last visit and I will chalk it up to restaurant week and the staff trying to push people in and out quicker."

  • "The Capital Grille is one of my favorite places to wine and dine my wife as well as other family and friends. One of the main reasons is for the amazing atmosphere, food and stellar service. Our favorite staff member Mr. Scott Kniffin is 2nd to no one when it comes to providing great service. On this particular occasion I decided to spend some quality time with my daughter, and I'm sure her experience will not be soon forgotten! Thx again Scott and the rest of the team at the Capital Grille!"
