  • "I made our reservation on open table and noted that it was a birthday celebration for my husband. When we arrived, there was confetti on the table for him. We received fantastic service and were pleased with how attentive our waiter was. He made it feel like an absolute celebration. The food was reminiscent of Carlo and Johnny, fabulous steaks, beautiful presentation and service. We had a nice dessert with "happy birthday" stenciled in chocolate on the plate, what a nice touch. The details were very much appreciated. Will highly recommend for anyone wanting a romantic dinner out."

  • "My wife and I made a last minute decision to go out to dinner and we decide that Capital Grille would be our choice. When we told out nineteen and fifteen year old daughters where we were going they talked us in to tagging along. We had an amazing time and the service was outstanding. The staff went out of their way to make the young ladies feel welcome and enjoy the evening. It was not our first trip to Capital Grille and there is no question that it will not be our last."

  • "We have loved The Capital Grille for years in Philadelphia, and when we moved to Cincinnati last year we were thrilled to see this one being built. It has not disappointed, and we have eaten there many times, always with great satisfaction. The Capital Grille consistently remains our favorite steakhouse, even after trying all of the other others. The combination of the great food (the bone in filet is fabulous), professional service and great ambience make it our first choice for all celebrations and special occasions - and even some random occasions when we just want a fantastic meal."

  • "Capital Grille was recommended to me by a co-worker. He said it was amazing and would be a great place for my anniversary. The best steaks we have ever had. The food was better than Jeff Ruby's. However the service was not as personable. My wife and I are a young couple and we believe that had an affect the service. We noticed almost all the tables around us were asked, "Are you celebrating anything tonight", or "Is this a special occasion". Pictures were taken by the staff and printed out for the customers. This hospitality was not passed on to us. If the service was more personable with us it would have been the best over all dining experience we've ever had. Would recommend to all friends."

  • "My date and I had never eaten at The Capital Grille in Cincinnati and we really had a great evening! The food was superb, the service timely and not too pushy, and the atmosphere warm and accommodating. Being our first time, we were treated to a small vodka/pineapple cocktail and a prosciutto ball appetizer on the house. Nice touch. Both tasted good! We ordered lobster and the Delmonico bone-in steak. We asked for the lobster to be cut out of the shell in the kitchen and they happily obliged. The lobster was spectacular! The steak was cooked just right and very flavorful! One of the best in recent memory. Overall, we had a great meal and a great night out! Julie, our server, was pleasant and made the evening fun. Try this place!"

  • "Went here for the first time with a group of 6. From the time you turn off busy Edwards Road into the lot, you feel like you are not in Cincinnati, Ohio. The host staff and all servers involved were warm, inviting and attentive. The steaks was cooked exactly as ordered. Awesome gluten-free selections. Extensive wine list. Worth a try."

  • "I have been to other Capital Grille's and was excited to see that Cincinnati had just opened one. The standards are high and we were not disappointed. From the Delmonico to the sliced filet, the food was cooked perfectly and seasoned well. Joy and staff took excellent care of us and Heather gave a nice personal touch to the wine selection. We are already planning our next outing."

  • "We had a group of 9 on a Thursday night. Bartender and servers were wonderful. The food is excellent . Took photo of the group, handed out free tastings of their vodka pinapple we asked about. Free sample of app sent by chef which was also excellent. Great place. Expensive but the service and food backed it up"

  • "I made a reservation at Capital Grille to celebrate our 22nd anniversary. The restaurant went out of their way to make sure we were treated well & had a nice note waiting for us at the table. The food was excellent! Yes, it is pricy but you should already know that & be prepared to pay premium before going. I would definitely recommend this for a special occasion. I'm sure we will return. Our server, Drew, was knowledgeable about the food prep and wine and very personable. Ask for him! We also received champagne and two delicious mini desserts to top off the evening & a picture to commemorate the event. I also received a follow up note & phone call to make sure our evening was to our liking. Great customer service!"

  • "What can I say? I will sum it up in one word unbelievable! It was by far the best restaurant I have ever eaten at! From the time I arrived, there was a wonderful table with a huge heart with the number five in rose petals. Absolutely blew me away. Not to mention a rose and a special note. The restaurant truly made our experience spectacular. Other waiters from other tables wished us a Happy Anniversary. The food is worth every penny and the dessert will make you slap your momma! The Cheesecake, a 11 on a ten scale. The food an 11 on a ten scale. Our waiter Andrew, a 20 on a ten scale. He truly made my day! He was very knowledgeable about every detail of the menu, very patient when we had questions, and so kind and just the best! "

  • "We celebrated my father's 75th birthday. The restaurant put us in a private room and had spinkled the table with birthday confetti. Our server, Chris, started us off with a complimentary champagne toast and included the children by substituting Sprite in the flutes. Not only was everyone's dinner delicious, the service was impeccable. We felt pampered all night. The evening ended with a complimentary slice of birthday cake for my dad and our waiter taking a group photo, presenting a print to my father. It's been a long time since I had a meal where both the food and the service were outstanding. Thank you so much for making the night a memorable one!"

  • "Last minute office get together and I was a bit nervous since I hadn't been there yet. It was a gamble that paid off big. From the moment you arrive service is superior, professional yet friendly. Atmosphere makes you forget you are in an area of suburban strip malls. Music and ambience are 5***** too! "

Our server Jeanine was fabulous, sweet, kind, friendly... food was perfect...steak incredible...desserts delicious...we were so pleased. It is very expensive but well worth it for a special occasion..."

  • "This was our 4th dinner at the Grill. The food was delicious and well presented. However, we noted that in the kitchen, several wait staff we're handling food with their uncovered hands. More disappointing was the person clearing the table who stacked dirty dishes on the plate beside and on top of the leftovers we were having boxed for us to take how. We've never seen that before!"

  • "I took my mother to Capital Grill for Mothers Day this past weekend. Every aspect of the experience was flawless down to the t. The quality of the service was reflective of the quality of the food that came from the kitchen which is something that all restaurants are not able to achieve. Many try, but most do not succeed. Capital Grill however managed to incorporate both of these elements seamlessly to deliver quite a one of a kind experience. Highly recommend!"
