Capital Grille - Minneapolis
Great dinner on a dietMy wife and I are dieting for weight loss and we were able to have a fantastic meal that was entirely on our plan, and were very encouraged by Scotty our waiter. Green salad, and a 10oz Filet with roasted mushrooms and grilled asparagus. Only ate half of the filet, saved the other half for another meal. For dessert, we had espresso and a bowl of berries, no sugers or sauces. All items were on our plan. That is how you can enjoy a diet plan.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Consistently AmazingWe make a point of dining at Capital Grille for Valentine's dinner every year, but this year we decided to celebrate our anniversary there as well. Everything about the evening was perfect, including the table - semi circle seating with a view out to the entire restaurant. It was perfect for people watching and to experience the energetic pace of the restaurant!
Our waiter was Michael Y and he was FABULOUS!! He was taking care of several large groups, but we never felt neglected and service was impeccable!
The food, of course, was as amazing as always. We have NEVER been disappointed at this restaurant!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial OccasionWe typically save Capital Grille for special events. After making reservations I phoned to ask if Capital Grille could help me with a special event; a proposal. They stated they had experience with this and noted the details. Our waiter (Dylan) was especially nice and paid attention to every detail. Cocktails were served, wine was opened and our favorite appetizer (Calamari with Hot Cherry Peppers) served; everything was excellent! The steaks were cooded to perfection!
The presentation, the quality and most importantly the "taste" of everything was beyond expectations. The dessert was served just as I had requested when the reservation was made and the surprise it yielded as I proposed will last in our memories for a lifetime.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food and service!The CG never disappointed and Lynn, our server, was excellent.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always Capital Grille isAs always Capital Grille is very consistent no matter what city. This one in Minneapolis was no different. Great food and service. All was good!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, outstanding serviceBecky, our server, was outstanding. Attentive but not hovering. The food was very good. What a great place for a special occasion! We will be back.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMEXC FOOD & exceptional Server ScottWe had one of the most positive experience. Food was mouth watering tasty with steaks lobster and steak crabs. Our sever SCOTT was beyond professional friendly that I can even describe. He was so nice and friendly to our 2 yrs old. He cleaned her hand and iPad. We even got her some strawberry for her to contend so we can enjoy the delicious steak and seafood dishes. I love capital grill for the variety and healthy food (at least that is what my mind tells me). Excellent portion size. I was so accustomed to Mannys steak house taste but then 1day I de used to try out capital grill again. Ever since we are hooked. Lol. All I can tell you is that we bought $2000 worth of gift cards just so we would feel obligated to come.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Birthday Dinner Ever!We went for my dad's birthday and it was amazing! They personalized the menu, put confetti on the table, and gave us complimentary dessert. The service was outstanding! Spendy, but worth it!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWas in Minneapolis for a conferenceWas in Minneapolis for a conference and had an open lunch the first day. Went for a walk and stopped in the Capital Grill. They has a 3 course meal for $18. The food was superb and the price was very reasonable for what we were served. We were tired of networking by the second day so we skipped the free lunch and returned to the Capital Grill. Tried the scallops the second day. They were good but the steak from the first day was better. The sweet peas and root veggies were excellent. How often to you see veggies being praised?5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways fantasticI have never been disappointed with a lunch (or dinner) at Capital Grille.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent but loud!We celebrated our anniversary at Capital Grille early (6:30pm) on a Tuesday night. The restaurant was busy (lots of large groups) and it was loud! We had difficulty hearing each other across the table in a small booth. I don't know if that's typical of Capital Grille but it certainly was not romantic. And there were no sporting events in town that night. The food was superb and the service attentive. Because they knew it was our anniversary, our table was scattered with rose petals and we were offered either complimentary champagne or dessert. Love the complimentary valet parking. Even with tip it's cheaper than other parking options downtown.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Wonderful!This is a standard for fine dining in the Twin Cities--wonderful beef/fish/side dishes. Lobster Mac & Cheese is to die for. But the best part of the restaurant is the amazing professionalism of the wait staff--we always know we will be well-served. The bar is fun and we love the stoli doli cocktail! So glad this restaurant continues to thrive in Minneapolis.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMA Very Special PlaceThey made our anniversary very special. They had a table saved for us that had rose petals sprinkled across it! Everyone we came in contact with wished us a happy anniversary! We got the wedge salad- awesome. They were very generous with the bacon and the dressing was terrific. Then I got sliced filet with a fig sauce and mushrooms. The meat was perfectly cooked and I really enjoyed the sauce. It added a sweetness. My partner got the Filet Oscar whcih she couldn't stop raving about! The restaurant offerd us a glass of champagne or a dessert free in honor of our anniversary. We got the fresh berries and creme bule. Both were outstanding. The service was top notch. We were SO please with how they made our anniversary VERY special for us.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic ExperienceWe went there to celebrate a graduation. It was everything we could have hoped for. The server was excellent. The salads, sides, soup, and of course of steak were wonderful. Definitely a great place for a special occasion. As far as higher end steakhouses it was very fair price as well. A memorable meal and experience we will not soon forget. Bravo.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood but...The service is outstanding and most of the food was good. The steak though was not perfect, for my particular order (ribeye) it looks like they could take notes from some much less expensive places... Overall it was very good experience anyway...5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Time OutMy wife and I were out for our wedding aniv. They knew it ahead of time and made it a wonderful night.

The service was excellent as always!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFood, service, ambiance allFood, service, ambiance all very good but a bit over priced. "Sirloin" steak was touted as strip steak. I know strip steak; strip steak is a friend of mine; the C.G. sirloin is no strip steak.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent dining and excellentExcellent dining and excellent in every way! We will return as often as we can!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe will be back!Fabulous food. Lobster Mac and cheese was delicious and my fillet was done to an absolutely perfect medium rare.
Everyone was very pleased with their entrees and service was outstanding. Complimentary valet parking was a nice plus, as well.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Capital Grille in MinneapolisThe Capital Grille in Minneapolis has been a restaurant that I have frequented for both business and pleasure. Friday evening was pleasure and the Capital Grille had all my information correct. They knew my favorite table and that I have "nut" allergies. Just remembering this made me feel at ease enjoying my time there, and the food was incredible, as always. I give them the highest ratings possible. Don't change please!
Scott3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent DinnerThe recommended evening specials for both the salad and main course (seafood and steak) were wonderful. We were too full for desert, maybe next time. The waiter was personable and attentive. We'll be back anticipating another fantastic meal!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to the Capital GrilleWe went to the Capital Grille for my daughter's 12th birthday.

Crowded so a bit noisy but worth it as they do steaks like no other. Took four 'newbies' who had never experienced the Capital Grille before. They were 'wowed'!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful meal at CapitalHad a wonderful meal at Capital Grille prior to a show at the Orpheum. All of the food was outstanding, the service very attentive and we were seated in a sort of side room that was probably much more quiet than the main seating area. I was very pleased with our first visit to the Capital Grille in Minneapolis.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Excellent Dinner!The Capital Grille never disappoints! The food and service is always excellent. Our table was ready the moment we walked in the door. The restaurant was packed on a Friday night at 7:00 pm. Prices are on the high side but in our opinion, the quality received is always worth the price paid. The best steaks can always be found at Capital Grille. We return as often as we can! Highly recommend!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMTried out Capital Grille duringTried out Capital Grille during restaurant week and couldn't have made a better choice! The food was absolutely delicious and our service couldn't have been better! Great wine list and very knowledgeable staff. Great restaurant!2/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Steak I've Ever Had Thus FarTo sum up my experience, excellent. A very good place for couples to go. We went during restaurant week during Feb 2013 and it was some of the best food, service, and experience I've had. Free valet parking, personalized service, and excellent food made it a great night. Our waitress gave us a discount on the wine, and substituted a desert item on the restaurant week menu for me. My aged sirloin with coffee rub was some of the best steak I've had thus far.2/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFit for CarnivoresThe staff was very attentive from start to finish. We started the meal with the lobster and crab cakes. Our server noticed there were 3 of us and suggested due to there being two large crab cakes we could have the chef either make 4 small or we could add a crab cake to make 3 large. We added one and they were fantastic! Our steaks were done perfectly and the dry rubs were flavorful but not over powering. If you are feeling carnivorous, and have some "spare" money this is the place!2/17/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy Valentine's DayWe had an Incredible evening....Scottie was our waiter.
Met General Manager.
Will definitely go back.2/16/2013 12:00:00 AMService is bar none!!!!!!!!!Service is bar none!!!!!!!!! Great food and ambiance!
