I really cannot think of anything
I really cannot think of anything to say this Capital Grille needs to improve upon. I've come to this location multiple times before, but never have for Restaurant Week. The food was great, waiter knowledgeable/friendly, and the MOD came by to greet.
Thanks Capital Grille, you truly always set a new bar for excellent customer service.

It was cool
I enjoyed myself. Did not have to wait long for a table. My waiter was nice, patient, and neat. I order a sirloin and it was out of this world, and their homemade ice cream was a great treat! Capital grille gets two thumbs up!

I'll Go Again
The main courses (steaks and Chlean Sea Bass at our table) were excellent. Service terrific!!! Would be a 5 Star if the soup were served hotter (had to send it back) and the dessert was more "special."

First Visit, Lifetime Customer
I visited during DC Restaurant Week and am pleased I was able to experience Capital Grille at about half the cost on my first visit and they have gained a lifetime customer. Valet parking- complimentary. The hosts were friendly and we were able to be seated before our reservation time. All other staff was attentive and friendly, though I wish our server was a bit more attentive as one person in our party received the wrong order and we didn't see much of our server to get refills, but the order mistake was quickly corrected and the manager brought out the correct food and both the manager and server apologized. I ordered the Dry Aged Sirloin Steak, cooked to medium perfection and tried the Pan Seared Chilean Sea Bass, highly recommended.

All was fine, however our guests and my wife commented about the attitude of the waiter - did not care for him at all.

Built for Business
From the dynamic but friendly pre-dinner bar get together to the 3-hour long dinner business-deal. This place is built for business. There is no better place to go than this to meet and greet the who-is-who of McLean.

Capital Grille was spot on!
Took my wife here for our 10 year anniversary and it was absolutely magnificent. The staff and food were exceptional. I would highly recommend. They also treated us for our anniversary by having our table decorated with a Happy Anniversary card and then topped it off with a free dessert for us. Highly recommend for those special occasions or a nice quite date night!

18th Birthday Dinner for son...
Son loves steak. He selected Capital Grille - Tysons. When we were seated, there was birthday confetti scattered on the table and a card wishing him a Happy Birthday, thanking us for selecting CG for our celebration. We were given complimentary little demi-tasse cups with lobster bisque (he, unfortunately, doesn't eat seafood), but from that, to the bread basket, to salads, filets, sea bass, sides...it was top notch all the way. While we had a large cake at home waiting for us, they boxed up a HUGE complimentary slice of chocolate hazelnut cake to go....son was very satisfied, as we all were. Priced very high, but for a special occasion, well worth every penny, and they made us all feel very well taken care of!

Once again the Captial Grill
Once again the Captial Grill staff made our anniversary celebration memorable. From the moment we walked in to anniversary wishes to the special touches of the signed card, photo, and champagnewe enjoyed our meal and felt special. I would recommend them over and over again plus the food is delicious.

We (party of 6) went to the Capital Grille for my son's 21st birthday. In spite of having a reservation, we ended up waiting 60 minutes before being seated. This was not the staff's fault, as the occupants at the table reserved for us were in no hurry to leave. During this wait, the maitre d (Justin) kept us informed and even took us to the bar and bought us a round of drinks. The bar scene was vibrant, and the 60 minutes went by fairly fast. He kept us informed of the status, and when we finally sat down at our table the staff, the service and the meals were wonderful. The memories of the wait quickly disappeared, and my son had a great 21st birthday celebration. This ws all due to the terriffic staff at the Capital Grille.

Wonderful food & service
Went for a date night. Server was wonderful. Food overall was excellent. Bread yum. Salads - caesar and chopped yum. Steaks - strip and au poivre perfectly cooked and delicious. We tried three sides. Creamed corn was good....nice flavor...but nothing special. Au gratin potatoes.....divine! Best side we tried hands down. Now let me talk about the truffle fries-- yes we tried all kinds of starches--they were DREADFUL! Save yourself the $10. They're not like real fries -- they have the battered fry consistency. Ewwwwww! Overall,a solid steakhouse meal and experience. As someone who finds meat in upscale steakhouses all mostly wonderful-- its the sides and salads that win me over. Avoid the truffle fries!!!!! And enjoy your meal!

Delicious meal with first rate service, attentive staff, free valet parking. Entrees ranged from $29-$49. Expect $200 minimum for two without wine or coffee/tea. Celebrated a birthday. The staff were gracious and appropriate. Complementary dessert was decadent.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We got there on the early side and it was very sedate. Our server was very personable and knowledgeable about the menu and food and answered all our questions with no hesitation. My filet was amazing -- like butta -- we started with the calamari and peppers and I could have that as a meal with a salad and leave the place with a huge smile on my face.

Everything are wonderful foods and wonderful beverages but their lobster is not best taste I ever taste and it s fair.

Over the top service!
My husband and I went to Capital Grille - Tysons Corner to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had an amazing dinner that was beyond our expectations. Definitely recommended if you want to celebrate a special occasion. They will make sure your celebration is really special.

It's a Capital Grille!!!!
What can I say, I've never been disappointed at a Capital Grille. The steak was the best I've had in a long time. And of course the lobster Mac n cheese is always my favorite.

Catching up with friends.
We selected Capital Grille for our lunch meeting with a friend we hadn't seen in a long time. We knew the atmosphere would allow us to chat and catch up with each other without having to strain to be heard. We had a wonderful time. The service was superior, food was excellent. Our server Justin was just wonderful! He took great care of us. He was very attentive without being intrusive - perfect. We had a great time! Thank you.

Delmonico is tops!
My husband and I had a very nice "date night" and a lovely meal. The waiter was excellent--very personable without being intrusive. The lobster bisque was delicious, but the star of the evening was my husband's Delmonico steak, a bone-in ribeye that was quite possibly the best steak I've ever eaten. (I had the lamb chops, which were very good, but after he shared the steak with me I was definitely coveting the plate across the table!) The wine list has some surprisingly affordable selections. Nice clubby atmosphere--you can dress up but you don't have to.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
A steak as good as the best anywhere. The side dishes are excellent. Definitely upscale with the menu to match.

Most Consistent Restaurant
I have dined in many restaurants in the Washington, D.C. area and the Capital Grille in Tysons Corner, which I have dined in many times, is consistently at a very high level of service and food quality. It is my go-to restaurant for business and family. I will even note that I was in Washington, D.C. on this day and drove by the Capital Grille in D.C. to go to the Tysons location because I have found the D.C. location to be inconsistent in service and food quality.

Get down to business
Just the right ingredients for a successful business lunch engagement---light atmosphere, time to get to know each other, privacy in an open space for details of the deal.

Romantic Old Style Steak House
Attentive nice service...beautiful paintings and dark mahogany moldings...and excellent steaks! There was a giant cracker (had a fancier name which I forgot :)) in the bread basket and butter to die for (Maybe French or Irish butter?). Had eaten here before but had been a regular customer to another steak house until a poor policy about wine made me try Capital Grille... now I am hooked. BTW...I am a business traveler and eat out 3-5 night a week often entertaining. $15 corkage policy here. Flemings in Tysons charges a $26 corkage fee and higher markups on their wine. Have found a new home at CG.:)

Delicious Food - Fantastic Service
Our food was wonderful - Steak & Tenderloin & Lobster. The service was impeccable. Attentive but not overbearing. Coach's assistance enhanced our visit.

A vibrant scene
This was a lunch date but the atmosphere was absolutely bustling. It was fun to be a part of it. My friend had arrived much before I, and I had called the restaurant on the way to tell them I would be unavoidably late. All the staff greeted me as if they had known me and expected me. It was a positive feeling. The service was excellent, not fawning, not pushy (we didn't have drinks), and the food was delicious. I ordered scallops and was surprised at the number of meaty scallops on my plate. It was yummy and I would go again, especially to order this dish.

Great service, gorgeous white table and settings, perfect timing, great food. Our group had a wonderful time there. The "ambient noise" of other dinner groups is considerable, so consider that if anyone in group has hearing problems.

13th Birthday Party
We took my son to this restaurant for his thirteenth birthday. The food was outstanding, as always. The wine list at this restaurant is astounding. The ambience was formal and warm.
The wait staff was made aware of the occasion and went to great lengths to make sure that this was a special night for him. Would highly recommend this restaurant for a fine night out.

Outstanding dinner and service
Celebrated my husband's birthday and the whole evening was flawless from start to finish. Nice little touches to make it special like a birthday card from the staff, confetti on the table and a celebration dessert. The calamari and lobster bisque were amazing, very flavorful. Steaks were the best we've had, and we've been to almost all of the well known steak restaurants. Wine and cocktails were great as well. Our service was top notch, very friendly, attentive and made us feel special.

Went to the Capital Grill for dinner with a number of very good friends and simply had a terrific time! Not only were the steaks outstanding but the wine list was amazing. Topping it all off was terrific service! Angela was just wonderful and couldn't have been more helpful. Everything combined to make it a wonderful evening.

Marcellus was amazing and attentive, we like to dine early so we reserved at 5:00, light crowd but got busy. Still amazing service and food! We had steaks, although mine was a little overdone, they quickly retrieved it offered me a shrimp cocktail (that I could not eat (allergies) but the steak came back perfect. Cheesecake is devine. We've dined at the Orlando, Phoenix and Charlotte locations all were good, so there is continuity across the brand. Sides are generous, and delicious, do try the creamed spinich, nutmeg used similar to the Palm, green beans with heirloom tomatoes, and au gratin potatoes were decadent. They present my daughter with a duet of mini cheese cake and espresso cake, very nice touch. This is our go-to place!

The Pinnacle at the Capital
.Not since Ronald Reagan was President of the United States has the DC area had such a great restaurant. The Capital Grill should be tops on you short list of dinning establishements in the Metro area. From the second that you enter to the goodbye at the front desk, you will have avery worthwhile experience. We come here quarterly on special occasions and the Capital Grill has always exceeded our expectations. From the service and ambiance to the food and libations, you know that you are at the dinning pinnacle of the Metro area and you will have the bill to prove it but only a few restaurants can compare but none will exceed the Capital Grill in making your visit a memorable experience
