Capital Grille - Denver
A place to celebrate!We were celebrating a 70th birthday and were treated royally. All our birthdays will be there!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMnot as good as beforeWe had about 4 waiters taking care of our table for 6. It felt a little too elitist and made you feel like you had to leave a big tip. The food is slipping,too. The entree portions seemed a bit smaller.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce Again a Great MealWe have been to the Capital Grill a number of times and they always impress! The service is exceptional and our waiter was the best. The great thing about Mothers Day is that they had a full buffet, but you could also order specific meals in addition to going through the line for fresh seafood, salads, etc.
We will go back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day Brunch "To Live For"!One of the best brunches! Capital Grille only have two brunches a year- Easter and Mother's Day. The Mother's Day brunch was exceptional in every way- the food and the service were outstanding! In addition to the amazing buffet including salads, hand-carved herb-crusted sirloin, salmon and an assortment of seafood, fresh fruits and vegetables and incredible desserts, --our waitress offered us egg dishes of any kind are made to order including Eggs Benedict with or without lobster, omelettes, poached eggs, etc.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat serviceHad a time limit for getting to play. Took care of us, great food, great service - really enjoyed it.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBusiness LunchGood place to have a business lunch. Service, surroundings was very professional and the meals were prepared as expected5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMSensational LunchJamil was our server and he is excellent. He described the special in such a way, I had to had the steak salad. It was perfect and I don't usually eat red meat. My sister and I wanted to take our brother here, as a treat since he is from out of town. We all loved it, the indulgence was perfect.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThey went above and beyond!My husband and I went to Capital Grille for our anniversary. When we arrived the table was covered with rose petals and a long stemmed red rose. The service was amazing and the food was delicious, we even got complimentary dessert for our special day!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dinner in DenverOur dinner for 5 was top drawer from the Martinis to the espresso. We were in a smaller room off the main dining room (approx. 6 tables) and sheltered from the lively bar scene. Our server was Ilan Bari,l and he was superb. His guidance was especially valuable when it came to the main courses offered. His thorough knowledge of the preparation of the entrees helped us to choose that sauces, etc. should be treated as "sides" so that there were not too many flavors which could overwhelm the meat. He's very knowledgeable re: the wine list as well and correctly directed by husband to a delicious savignon blanc rather than his usual pinot grigio. All a fabulous night had by all ;-)5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is Gourmet QualityEverything about this restuarant was really good including the complimentary valet service which is not always available in the downtown and neighborhood areas. The only downside is the noise level. My dining partner and I had to lean across the table to hear one another. Maybe it's the hardwood flooring and most every table that was filled with people conversing. Very pricey but delicious. Will go back to try other items on the menu and hopefully find a more quiet time to dine; if, that is possible. Our waiter is quite good; however, he didn't seem to care whether he spoke loud enough or directly to us so we could hear all he was saying.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMQuality, upscale place. Pricey,Quality, upscale place. Pricey, but worth it. Definitely recommended.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWell...We have been here severalWell...We have been here several times and always loved it. This time the shirimp cocktail appetizer was not up to snuff. Instead of 3 very large shrimp we were served 5 medium sized. Flavor was so-so. The bread and the rest of the food was very good but when I got home I felt as though I had a stone in my stomach. This lasted several hours in spite of taking massive amounts of digestive enzymes. I'm thinking it must have been either the bread or the side of mushrooms. This kind of reaction is usually due to poor quality oils in the recipe.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI love the Capital Grille.I love the Capital Grille. This time we went to celebrate a birthday. The hostess immediately welcomed the birthday girl, and the table was decorated for her. Service was exceptional, and food was excellent.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA special occasion EVERY VISIT!Thank you Capital Grill for the most wonderful Administative Assistant's lunch EVER!

The special filet mignon with ancho pepper dusting was a nice change from the regular filet. The NY strip and the porterhouse were both delicious. Our waiter Rene was terrific. The H2 cabernet wine by the glass was excellent too. The coconut cream pie dessert was a great end to the meal. We will go back again. We were there early on Saturday (5 PM) and it was nice and quiet, before the Saturday night crowds.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best meals I'veOne of the best meals I've ever had!! The service was excellent, but plan to be there a couple of hours as it takes a while for each round of food/drinks that you buy. The only thing I didn't like is it was very smoky and hurt my eyes a bit.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce Again Capital Grill SucceedsThere are several top end steakhouses. Capital Grill excels. The service is simply impeccable (attentive w/o overbearing or smothering) and it is a chain! John our waiter was fantastic, knowledgeable, attentive, but gave us space for a leisurely meal. Great job! Jamil (steward) had wonderful wine suggestions that complemented the meal. The special; porcini rubbed filet with heirloom tomato, buffalo mozzarella and pesto side was expertly prepared and very tasty. Steak just as ordered. Side of creamed corn with bacon, good to go. For dessert, John brought out BOTH creme brulee and strawberries in Grand Marnier for my wife's b-day. Both were exceptional, great flavors, fresh, brulee with perfect carmelized top. All made her feel special. Kudos4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWeight WatchersGreat as always. It was my birthday and they brought our 3 deserts for me and my well wishers to devour, and that we did.
Thanks Capital Grille for adding inches to my waste and a smile to my face! This is NOT the place to go if you're watching your weight. Everything is good and hard to turn down! And the wait staff is not there to help with your weight:-)4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful time atWe had a wonderful time at dinner.

We were not really happy with lamp we ordered (it did taste like fatty colorado lamp). Even after the manager said it was Australian lamp i still thought it was from Colorado. But they changed that for lobster tails with no problem. And the service... oh, man , they know how to get you back..)))) Will be back for sure.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDidn't get the level of serviceDidn't get the level of service that we normally get on this visit.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe returned to Capital GrilleWe returned to Capital Grille to celebrate our anniversary.

The Lobster Benedict with two perfectly cooked eggs, rich Hollandaise and about half a nice sized lobster tail was made to order. The buffet had smoked ham, a well seasoned beef tenderloin and a full array of breakfast treats. The French toast was thick sliced and crusty with just the right amount of custard, served with whipped honey butter and maple syrup. The plump chicken sausages contained a rich combination of sweet spices and apples. The bacon was thick sliced, peppery. There was also a display of lobster tail, very large shrimp. Dessert was abundant but average, flourless chocolate torte the highlight. They do turn a table though and it was clear when time was up.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Brunch!Brunch was wondeful. We al had a very nice time and the food was perfect. I would recommend the Lobster Eggs benedict to anyone.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster Brunch was fantastic!Easter Brunch was fantastic!

Not only did the hostess and wait staff acknowledge our occasion the minute we arrived, throughout the evening they went above and beyond to make our evening truly special.
Everything from the presentation, the food quality and taste, the timing, the service; all were exceptional.
