  • "My wife and I chose the Capital Grille to celebrate our 28th wedding anniversary. The dining experience was fantastic! The service and the the food was impeccable. I think the filet I had was one of the best ever and for dessert we chose chocolate cake a la mode to share. WOW! What a way to wrap up a fine dinner. We will definitely be going back."

Would recommend highly. Service was great. They brought us champaign and dessert gratis. Manager stopped by to check on us. They took our picture and printed it out for us.

  • "A very special restaurant! Food is delicious and staff are attentive. I took my friend for lunch for her Birthday. Staff made lunch extra special. Decorated booth, gave her a card and photo and a delicious dessert for two. Mini tenderloin sandwiches are fabulous and her salad looked great."

  • "We had stopped in for dinner before a show. The waitress asked if why we were joining them and then worked to make sure that our food was prepared on time to insure that we made the show with plenty of time to spare."

  • "The ambiance, service and food was phenomenal as usual. The staff consistently knocks it out of the park with kindness and attention to detail. This is a place that you can take your best customer or your significant other and you will know that you are getting the best that Milwaukee has to offer!"

  • "The atmosphere is relaxed inside a polished restaurant. The filets are the very best with outstanding flavor. Our first time there seemed formal, but the wait staff puts you at ease right away. The attention to details is great. Each time we've celebrated a special occasion, they've always done something extra without us asking, it may be a card, flower, desert, or even a picture taken at your table! We can't say enough about the food and atmosphere. We've never had a bad meal."

  • "Had a group of six on Saturday evening and had a great meal. The steaks we had were so flavorful. The sides were different and complimented the steaks. We had a wonderful time. The only retraction was our table was close to the kitchen and it was a little too loud"

  • "We had dinner here Saturday night with another couple after seeing a musical at the theater. We ordered the surf and turf special for the evening. The steak was cooked perfectly. My complaint was my steak was smaller then everyone elses and I only received three skinny little crab legs. One which was completely empty. My husband had one empty crab let also. The waitress told us the crab legs were unusally large legs and very meaty which is why we ordered them. I have seen larger crab legs at Costco. I must say, after a $450.00 tab, I was dissapointed to leave hungry. The sides are all family style now, too. One order of potatoes was definately not enough for the whole table. We had a nice evening, but I would not return."

  • "It was my fiance's birthday and I added that in the comment section when I made the reservation. When we arrived, the table was decorated and a birthday card signed by the staff was there. The chef sent out a little appetizer for her (scallops/spinach). Meal was perfectly paced and great! Service by Monica was attentive but not stifling. They also took a picture of us and printed it out for us to take home. They also provided free dessert. It was a very impressive experience."

  • "My wife and I went out for dinner to celebrate her birthday prior to attending a performance at the Milwaukee Theatre. Bryan was our waiter and the service, food and atmosphere were excellent. Everything was prepared as ordered (steaks). Not inexpensive and the sides were probably too large, but that allowed us to bring home another meal to enjoy. Not an every night place to eat, but great for special occasions and very convenient for getting to the theatre and surrounding venues."

  • "The: - restaurant is very well maintained, with a "like new" feel - servers were attentive, professional, pleasant and not hovering - table well-located, away from distractions - martini was dry and dirty, just the way I asked - lobster bisque was more lobster than bisque - steaks lived up to their billing; tender, flavorful and perfectly done to our requests - desserts a perfect complement, with the berries and cream besting the rich in-house-made ice cream by a touch."

  • "Service in the bar area with Michael was some of the worst that we have ever encountered. Our 6th visit to this location and the first was our best experience...going downhill ever since. Michael seemed more intent of speaking with what appeared to be regulars than keeping the bar area clean (there were dirty glasses, plates and shakers resting directly in front of us) In a place like this, I should not have to say "Excuse me...can we place an order?" in an attempt to have a bartender actually lift his eyes our way. Great food but will not be back. Capital Grille - you need to review your bar staff."

  • "My husband's birthday is right around Valentine's Day, so we booked this restaurant for the special occasion. The service and food were excellent --I had the salmon w/ asparagus and he had the filet mignon w/ onions, mushrooms and wine sauce. But it was the little extra's they provided that made it great; they spinkled the table w/ confetti and had a birthday card at the table when we arrived, thanking us for celebrating w/ them. For dessert, they gave us complimentary sweets, with a chocolate "Happy Birthday" on the plate. They also took our picture and printed/framed it right away for us to take home. And for Valentine's Day, I received a rose and we were given truffles. It was a very nice evening!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I took my boyfriend here for his birthday, and noted it in my reservation. As soon as we checked in, the hostess wished him happy birthday, as did everyone else that approached outlr table. The server called me by name and was full of information and offered us sample treats from the kitchen. They even had confetti on the table with a signed birthday note from the staff! They really pulled out all the stops to make him feel special - and it was more than I would have ever expected. To top it off, the cocktails were amazing and the food was perfection - definitely a great steak spot (since that's what we both had). I would definitely visit again!"

  • "This was a good place to choose for our Valentine's day celebration. We had great food... I had the scallops with Mushroom risotto and the Lobster bisque. Both were outstanding. My husband had the sirloin, and enjoyed it. The Parmesan truffle fries are a force to reckon with. They are quite addictive. Our waiter was nice and friendly. He even brought a rose and chocolate truffles to help us celebrate."

Then after dinner -they really didnt clear/clean table either. waiter would see it all, but leave for the bus guys who were slow. water glasses remained empty. definitely would not go back there on a holiday. crab legs = dried out."

  • "Went for an anniversary lunch. The staff went over and beyond to acknowledge our celebration. The rose and confetti on the table, the complimentary picture and dessert and the card (signed by employees) were ALL unexpected and special touches that made us feel treasured. The food was excellent and next time we've decided to try other things on the menu."

  • "The Capital Grill was, as usual, excellent. service, wine, food and atmosphere all combine to make it an ideal location for a romantic dinner, a dinner with friends, or in my case time with business partners and customers. Our server Suzanne did a wonderful job, our compliments to the entire staff."

  • "This is our second trip there in the last year. Great beef both times, the sides are also very good. the menu shows size of the portions in oz. I wanted a large cut of beef that night and was able to order accordingly. the sides are good sized as well, easily feeds two. For an expensive place ($100/person) we were surprised at the at the more affordable wine bottle prices. We had a nice bottle of french for under $30. Service this time was average, last time it was supper. Tables are nicely spaced so the noise level was moderate, at that level of restaurant I prefer quiet."

  • "We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Captial Grille. In the special notes section on Open Table I indicated our wedding anniversary. Our table had a single red rose and card signed by the staff. The manager also stopped over to congradulate us. The food was excellent and our server was amazing. Every experience at CG has always exceeded expectations."

  • "Wonderful service from the valet parking, to the wait staff, to the manager coming to each table to guarantee satisfaction. Several menu choices were customized for the time of year and were extremely flavorful. Because of the prices, this restaurant is a “Special Occasion” or “Important Business” type of location. Costs may be high but the food is superb."
