Service outstanding, personable with a touch of class. mostly known for their steaks...did not disapoint. had the tenderloin and lobster....would go again.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday LunchI made a reservation for lunch for my brother and detailed this in my request on my open table notes. When we arrived and I checked in the hostess looked at him and asked if it was his birthday. He was so stunned and said yes because he was wondering how did they know it was his birthday. The manager that seated us did the same thing. It put such a big smile on his face. From the birthday wishes, the birthday card on the table, the desert and the picture, made my brother's birthday so special. Thank you so much Capital Grille! You made my brother's birthday lunch simply marvelous!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodBeen here many, many times and the food is always on point. Great service, excellent food for the price, great surroundings. The place serves the best calamari being anywhere. Try the specials and of, course any steak on the menu is such a pleasure. Save room for dessert too5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLousy tableAlthough my reservation was at 5:45 PM because I was going to the theater that evening, my guest and I were assigned the worst table in the restaurant right in front of the kitchen. I must add that the restaurant was practically empty. When I said that the table was not acceptable, I was given a nice booth by the window. The food as always was very good as the service.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMamazing dry aged beefCame here with a friend and had the tenderloin with lobster tails. Beef was perfectly cooked and tastes amazing due to the aging process. Great wine and cocktail list, and great ambience too. Service was warm and welcoming, and I was happy to pay for such a gd quality of food and service.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed the quiet atmosphereWe enjoyed the quiet atmosphere for a Sunday night dinner. The food was great and so was the service. We were not rushed while we sat and talked and enjoyed our wine after eating. All staff was very helpful in accomodating a wheel chair.
Thank you Capital Grille.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steaks. Service wasGreat steaks. Service was a bit rushed but very nice. The only thing
That was annoying was that although the restaurant was half
Empty they tried to sit us right next to the waiters stand and
Kitchen. That kind of treatment leaves a bad taste. Can't even
understand why such a high end restaurant even has tables
like that. They changed the table with no fuss but I don't like to
start the evening that way4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time, thisWe had a great time, this is one of our favorite places to go.

Surprisingly, the dry aged porterhouse steak did not have as much flavor as I expected - good but not great. My wife's lamb chops were very good, though. Plan to try steaks at Joe's before returning to Chicago Cut (but very loud and expensive) or Flemings.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMTruly enjoy dining at theTruly enjoy dining at the Capital Grille.

Great, friendly service.3/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steak everOur first time dining at Capital Grille. It was restaurant week, so we can't talk about the whole menu, only what was offered. For $33 per person I got clam chowder, the husband ceasar salad, I got the 8 oz filet, my husband the kona rubbed steak with shallot butter (to die for) two side dishes and two desserts (creme brulee and chocolate cake). Our server was amazing and very friendly. One of the best filets I ever had... like butter. Unbelievable. I wasn't thrilled sitting in a small side room (especially with a reservation) but I would make sure to make that preference known on my reservation next time. It's expensive, so the restaurant week price made it affordable.2/2/2013 12:00:00 AMMeet girlfriends for lunchMeet girlfriends for lunch every few months, They are always accomodating to our request for raw oysters and giving us each our own sauces.
