Capitol Grille - Hermitage Hotel - Nashville
Here in Nashville on businessWe get to Nashville just about every two weeks on business, and after a busy day we treat ourselves to a superior meal at a superior location. The Capitol Grille certainly fills the bill, a place to relax with good rinks, wonderful food (with a surprise or two every time), and terrific service. We don't get a chance to come every time we're in the city, but it's a great place to come when we're not in a hurry. Thanks for a terrific evening.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful in every wayMy husband and I enjoyed the Capitol Grille immensely. From the wait staff being on top of every detail to the excellence of our meal it was beautiful. Our waiter asked us before the meal if we were on our way to a show and made sure that we would be out with the right amount of time to reach our destination. The meal was not only beautiful in presentation, but perfectly prepared, creative, and delicious. I would recommend it to anyone.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA Wonderful Dining ExperienceThe Capitol Grille was absolutely outstanding! Our waiter (and the other staff) was extremely attentive throughout our dining experience. They had an assortment of cocktails which were all delicious, and I also enjoyed trying some new drinks that seemed unique to the area. I greatly enjoyed the Sweet Onion Bisque and the Truffle Mac and Cheese- both were AMAZING! The only thing I was a little disappointed in was that the menu had a lot of similar items (different kinds of steak, fish, etc). In the future, I would be more pleased if they could incorporate other options into the main dishes (for example, duck, another chicken dish, etc.) in order to have a more diverse menu.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a lovely time...Our family had a lovely time celebration graduation at the Capitol Grille. The food was great and the service was outstanding.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebratory!I just love this place for its casual southern elegance - both cuisine and the culture of the restaurant/hotel. Who else would have Brooks Bros. waitstaff uniforms quite like this? The hatch shell prints for menus are so unique. We are always made to feel special and it was particularly nice to have our last Nashville meal here, as our daughter graduated from Vanderbilt that day. Service was impeccable and a faux pas in steak prep was corrected immediately (and with a side brought out while we waited). Perfect touch.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMConvenient in NashvilleExpensive and food value not worth the cost. Just convenient for the evening. Great service.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Foodies!Located in the Hermitage, gorgeous luxury boutique hotel with a stunningly beautiful lobby (check out the photos on their Internet site), this gourmet restaurant is in a lovely room with large arching columns and artwork depicting the state Capitol. Linen table cloths and expertly trained servers. it can be quite noisy when full with chattering guests. Expensive but something everybody should experience at least once. RGinTally5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, good service, quietWe took a client to dinner here. The service was good, food was good, ambiance was okay. The men's room is very cool--an old art deco room in lime green and black. The hostess took me in (as I'm female) to see it. The women's room is not nearly as interesting. I didn't see the rest of the hotel, but it's historic and supposed to be very nice.
I had the scallops and truffled mac and cheese, both were very good. They were eclipsed by the coconut cake for dessert tho. Not only was it absolutely beautiful, but it was also very yummy.
Free valet parking, make sure you get validated.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a delightful experience,Always a delightful experience, if a bit of a splurge.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a wonderful experience.It was a wonderful experience. They greeted us immediately and said "happy Anniversary". We weren't sure they would acknowledge the event. They had our table with rose petals on it and service was impeccable. Peter was our waiter and he was amazing. Came back after our theater show and went to the bar and they acknowledged us by name. I am from Nashville and this hotel used to have a barbershop in it. My grandfather was the barber and so it was really special to me! It was a wonder "31st" anniversary!!!!!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this restaurant--fabulousI love this restaurant--fabulous chef; terrific service; and fresh, locally-sourced ingredients.

Silky smooth & full of delicious , home grown onion flavor. A great farm to table experience3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for a special ocasionThe Capitol Grill was a good experience the table was set perfectly, and the Waiter and wait staff excellent. My wife had the Lamb and it was a little overcooked and dry. I had the scallops, they were very good except one was over cooked and a little rubbery. The portions were excellent the deserts were wonderful. The salads we had were VERY good.
Over all it was a fine experience.Of the three courses TWO were rated a five and the third only a four.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMHistoric CharmerElegant historic hotel, quiet classy ambiance. Excellent traditional southern fare.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AM60th Birthday FunCapitol Grille is a favorite in many cities. The ambience, service and quality if food is very good to excellent in Nashville. The oysters were as fresh as anywhere. The Hunter's plate appetizer was great to share. Order steak if you're hungry. Other dishes are more modest in portion but not in flavor. The trout was excellent. Although expensive, it is a great spot for a special occasion or just for when you wish a great treat.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe house salad tasted likeThe house salad tasted like weeds. The sorghum chicken was delicious. The lamb was delicious but it came with "field peas" which turned out to be fava beans. The root vegetables were scarce -- a piece of parsnip and an onion. I was very unhappy with the fava beans and did not appreciate finding them on my plate. The menu should accurately describe the dish so that everyone knows what they will get without surprise. I would never order the lamb with that side.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMA Magical and Memorable NightBeing from out of town this was my first visit to the Capitol Grille. What a treat it was from the courteous way we were greeted by the parking attendants, to the view and ambiance of the Hermitage Hotel and then the beautifully appointed Capitol Grille. The service and then the food continued and carried the evening to the pinnacle of dining pleasure. My guest was thrilled which made the evening a most magical memorable evening. Lord willing I will be back.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMPortions a bit small, husbandPortions a bit small, husband got salmon and it had mixed veggies on the plate, they must have been for presentation not many at all plus very small piece of salmon3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat evening!The food was fantastic and out waiter, Roncie, made the evening memorable.
