Capital Grille - Minneapolis
Excellent 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.

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.

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.

Also did not check on the wellness of our steaks until we were more than half way done with our meal.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service. You get whatGreat service. You get what you pay for. The side portions are generous enough for 2-3 people.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat server, great food,Great server, great food, great evening. 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 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 AMService is bar none!!!!!!!!!Service is bar none!!!!!!!!! Great food and ambiance! Enjoyed going here before a show at the Brave New Workshop on a Friday night. Perfect spot!2/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Outstanding ExperienceOur group celebrated a birthday--we were welcomed with a little note and sprinkles on the table, as well as a free dessert for the birthday girl. The food was absolutely fabulous; we've eaten in several other Capital Grilles across the US, and we've NEVER been disappointed. Everything, including the service, drinks, quality of food, and front desk, has always been absolutely top notch. Our favorite restaurant for 2012!12/8/2012 12:00:00 AM
