Capital Grille - Indianapolis
Great food and serviceIf the Capital Griille was closer to where I live, I would go more often. The food and service are great, and it's not loud like a lot of restaurants. The menu has a variety of choices. We were in a group of 13, and we're put in a private room, which made it more comfortable. If you haven't been there, try it. You will not be disappointed!6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMYum YumThe lobster Mac and cheese side is to die for! Everything was awesome!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointedI have been to this restaurant several times and the food is always excellent and the service is wonderful. They are also accommodating to food allergies. Atmosphere is nice but it can be quite busy and noisy if you are seated near the bar area. If you are looking for a quiet or private dining experience, I would suggest requesting a table away from the entrance/bar area.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat all-around experienceWe were very pleased with our experience. We chose Capital Grill to celebrate our anniversary, hoping to find good food, good service, and a quiet atmosphere. We found all three in spades, in fact they went above and beyond our expectations with some special surprises. Capital Grill easily beats several of the traditional high profile and more famous high-end restaurants in Indy. We were very pleased and we will be back.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMvery nice experience, food was gooMy wife and I are semi healthy eaters and love to try new things so were very excited about lunch. First, the ambiance is pleasant and casual. The staff is attentive, upbeat and professional. The food was prepared very quickly even though we told them we were not in a rush. All the food was well prepared. Calimari was a little greasy, but had some nice kick. New York strip was a nice thick cut, perhaps a tad overcooked and salty, but the flavor and texture was overall satisfying. My wife had a very rich chicken breast which was very tender and tasty. The side mashed potatoes was my favorite. Personally I would say their food is quite good but a little on the salty, oily side.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe first time.I was in town on business and had been wanting to the Capital Grill. It was an excellent dining experience and was not a disappointment. I will move it up on my list of places to eat in Indy.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat serviceSurprised mother, grandmother and aunts. They loved it.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steak houseWent to CG to celebrate an IU graduate; food was very good. Service was good though at times a little inconsistent. They acknowledged the celebration with a card, a photo and a free dessert. Nice touch. Sides were outstanding, salads were solid but not memorable. Mains were very good as well. Overall a solid steakhouse for reasonable prices.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGrand Plateau - This willGrand Plateau - This will be very hard to surpass
Told my friends of a previous awesome experience
Capital Grille answered and took it up a notch5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSteak Lover's DreamThis was my first time at a Capital Grill. A friend that loves the place recommended our conference group try this place for a nice dinner out and we were not disappointed. Compared to Ruth's Chris, I'd give this place a much better rating. The dry-aged Kona rubbed sirloin was out of this world. I had the best cosmopolitan I've ever tasted and their extensive wine list was impressive. Service was really beyond great. Our server was energetic, friendly and open with his recommendations. I had ordered a bottle of the Joel Gott wine blend but didn't realize until we finished the bottle that we had received the Cabernet Sauvignon. It was fine, but the server comped us the bottle to make up for the error. Overall easy 5-star experience.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA friend had recommended theA friend had recommended the Capital Grill for my birthday so a friend and I decided to try it. Had a reservation for 5:30 that was easily made on line. We arrived a half hour early of the reservation time and so we asked if we could be seated earlier and they gladly let us. The food was AMAZING!! We both had the Filet Oscar and it just melted in your mouth. Best Filet I have ever had! The Lobster MAC & Cheese is a must have. It was to die for! The wine was incredible also. Our waitress, Stephanie, was outstanding!! We did not know what wine to order, because there is so many to choose from, so we trusted her recommendation and it was spot on!! It was truly an awesome birthday dinner and would definitely go back again!!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMCapital Grill 04/26/13One of our favorite places always.

She always is attentive, resourceful, kind, helpful, and goes above and beyond for her clientele. When booking your special event there is no other place I would rather have my dining experience but at CG Indy.

We didn't send it back because the person who ordered it was indifferent and almost chose the one that was brought to the table.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was very good and theFood was very good and the service was outstanding.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great serviceGreat food, great service and the aged porterhouse I ate was phenomenal!!4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOur family of five had a wonderfulOur family of five had a wonderful dinner to celebrate my husband's birthday.

Chris, our server, was attentive and helpful, without being intrusive.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExclusive ambience, but mostExclusive ambience, but most assuredly "doable" for a more casual crowd. Love the service -- attentive without being intrusive. I will certainly return.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are Captial Grill loversWe are Captial Grill lovers - try to visit various locations throughout the US -- Indianapolis location did not let us down. Bar is a bit smaller but did not make a difference. We had dinner there on 2 evenings and breakfast on one morning. Totally awesome experience.....4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service, the food - allThe service, the food - all excellent as usual. From the moment you walk in the door, you feel welcome and taken care of.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster LunchNice to have a brunch menu which is served by a wait staff as opposed to having to prepare your own plate. We met here to visit our grown children on Easter from Indy and Bloomington and enjoyed a great menu and uninterrupted Sunday lunch. Service was great.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat I liked best about theWhat I liked best about the restaurant: the service. I felt pampered walking in and continued to feel pampered until I walked out. Coat checker, waiter, sommelier, even the busboy all knew our party name. They were all intent on ensuring that we had a terrific experience. Regarding the food, if you're a beef lover, this is the place for you. We started with French Onion Soup and Caesar's salad. Both to perfection. Dry aged steaks prepared exactly how you asked for them. I had the Bone-In Kona (coffee) Crusted Sirloin with Shallot Butter, companion had Steak au Poivre with Courvoisier Cream with a side of roasted mixed mushrooms. Neither of us is a big beef eater, but we enjoyed these very much. We finished with sour cherry sorbet. Yum!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food!Food was good, service was good. Looking forward to returning!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner. Our reservationGreat dinner. Our reservation was late so they offered free app. thanks for a great evening.1/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went as part of DevourWe went as part of Devour Downtown and the place was packed. Nice feel and good food. Great deal with the promotional pricing. The servers were busy, but there were lapses in between courses where we were ready for our plates to be cleared. Not bad, but not quite as prompt as some other places.1/22/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently greatI had the pleasure to attend a small seminar at the Indianapolis Conrad Hotel from November 8-11. This upscale Hilton Hotel is connected to the Capital Grille, which offered breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I ate all three meals at the CG, and they were wonderful. For this review, I am focusing on the dinner I had alone on November 8 on my own nickel. I devoured the $49 Cold Seafood Platter, an Iceberg Lettuce Salad with Blue Cheese Dressing, and a Creme Bruele. Each was A+ in portion and taste. The service was friendly and outstanding. The bill was reasonable for the high quality of the food and the luxurious surroundings. Along with Ruth's Chris, I find the CG to be consistently great wherever I find them.11/8/2012 12:00:00 AM
