Date Night @ Capitol Grille
The food was very good - especially the Sweet Onion Bisque, which was exquisite. The Farm Salad and the Hangar Steak were very good, though the Buttermilk Mashed (should read Whipped) Potatoes are nothing to write home about. The wait staff is very professional and attentive and the wine list is very good.

Great for a special celebration
We traveled from London UK to Nashville to celebrate my parents' 60th wedding anniversary and found Capitol Grille by another site's recommendation. On a Tuesday night the dining room was half full, but the warmth of the room and the wait staff created a perfect ambiance. Every dish was delicious- great to see southern classics reimagined with creative twists, but not so creative that we couldn't recognize the dishes (try the Sweet Onion Bisque, Lamb Chops and Truffle Mac and Cheese!). Simply prepared scallops and fresh trout were also wonderful. Our special celebration was complete with a beautiful chocolate dessert specially prepared by the kitchen to wish my parents a Happy Anniversary. We will return!

My favorite in Nashville!
I love this restaurant. I am a huge foodie and we travel a lot. The quality of food is tops!

Beautiful dinner. Everything
Beautiful dinner. Everything was delicious. We both really enjoyed it. The presentation of everything was lovely.

Outstanding in every way. From the moment we walked in the door and looked up at the beautiful ceilings, felt the smooth wood of the massive banisters, drinks in the Oak Bar where we ran into friends we hadn't seen in years, the soft ambience of the dining room, the excellent and knowledgeable server, the velvety smoothness of the scallops, the tender, flavorful 28 day dry aged beef, and last but not least the complimentary birthday dessert. Enough said! Just go!!

My husband and I were visiting Nashville to celebrate our anniversary and wanted to have a special dinner together. This was the place! The staff was attentive and, when they discovered we were celebrating our anniversary, provided some special touches to make it a memorable evening. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere was perfect for us.

Delicious birthday dinner!
My boyfriend and I came in this past Friday night for his 30th birthday. The service and food was absolutely amazing especially the truffle mac and cheese. Dustin was our server and he was very knowledgable and timed courses perfectly! Definitely made for a memorable birthday! They even have us a complementary dessert!

Superior in every way
We had an anniversary brunch at Capitol Grille last weekend and were blown away by how wonderful it was. The staff managed every detail flawlessly -- from food to presentation to service. You could really taste the quality and care that was put into growing and preparing the food by the chef and his staff. The ambiance was wonderful, and they even went out of their way to put rose petals on our table because they knew it was our anniversary! We found them to be professional, knowledgeable, and just downright great at what they do. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a dining experience that's a notch above the rest.

This was our first time there.
This was our first time there. The wine list was extensive and the food was as expected-awesome. The service was outstanding too. A very romantic evening and we will definitely return.

Best business lunch in town
Capitol Grille is a special place for special occasion meals or any occasion meals. Whether you're dressed in a suit for a power lunch or just treating yourself to a casual meal before a day of downtown touristy activities, you'll find a creative menu full of fresh, local ingredients and innovative Southern recipes.

Nice meal, wonderful service
We really enjoyed pre-dinner drinks at the Oak Bar and then a great meal at The Capitol Grille. The service was excellent, our waiter very friendly and knowledgable. The onion bisque soup is a must try.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
A good steak house
The steaks were broiled to the right temperature but could have used a bit more flavoring.
The service was exceptional.
9/20/2013 5:00:00 PM
I had the Sweet Onion Bisque, which will rate as one of the best things that I have eaten EVER, and the scallops which were delicious. The place is beautiful and our waiter, Jeff, was very knowledgeable and friendly.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service makes or breaks the experie
Chef Tyler always delivers fresh food and great presentation. This visit, however, our server was uninformed and inattentive to our table. What could have been a GREAT meal was downgraded to just good. Other tables - in his section and elsewhere - seemed to get served well, or at more quickly.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I stayed ata hotel just down the street and walked down for our reservations. We had charcuterie that was divine. For our entrees my husband had filet cooked perfectly and I had monkfish something I love. It was delightful. Our waiter, Matthew, could not have been more knowledgeable and attentive. The restaurant has their own farm, with gardens and heard of cattle. All of their food is literally farm to table. I will definitely go back on my next trip to Nashville.

Sets the Standard
We were in town for a few days to attend a family wedding. The Capitol Grille was beyond expectation. We have dined at the chain Capital Grille in DC and NY on several occasions as we love the them. They like to say Capitol Grille at the Hermitage is the "real" Capitol Grille and original, and we agree. The atmosphere, service, and food are on a "sets the standard, world class benchmark level.
The wait staff is exceptionally professional and inviting, the wine offerings impressive, and the food was beyond expectation. I had the filet mignon. Perhaps the best cut of beef I have ever had. The Hermitage sources their beef and greens from a local farm that they own.
We are planning Thanksgiving 2014 at the Hermitage Capitol Grille!
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
excellent as always
prompt seating, great ambiance, food outstanding as always, service impeccable
definitely not a second avenue venue but that is not a negative
we celebrated another couples 47th anniversary here and then went to Broadway and 2nd avenue.
The Capitol Grille is an institution

Capitol Grill at Hermitage Hotel
We went here on the recommendation of a Nashville friend, and were not disappointed. The only weakness might be the types of desserts available. So we didn''t have any! This is a place to go for a special occasion - ours was our 47th wedding anniversary, and the food that we had was little short of spectacular. But it is pricey. The wine list is extensive, and prices varied from about $40 or so up to several hundred dollars and more! When we visit Nashville again, this is a place to which we most likely will go back.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
food average....scallops good but overly salty
potato leek soup delicious
pork chop tough
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent upscale local flavor
Special friends visiting, requested a non-chain local upscale experience.
Capitol Grille at the Historic Hermitage Hotel is surely the top choice.
Every feature was excellent. We truly enjoyed the evening.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed a quiet Sunday brunch last weekend. Expected the "big buffet". Was not like that at all. Roughly 10 appetizers on the menu and 10 entrees. All in the 10-15 dollar range. Had a wonderful heirloom tomato salad with tomatoes from the chef's farm and my wife had a delicious onion bisque. She had a vegetable frittata and I had eggs Benedict. Both were very good and had unique twists from the chef compared to standard offerings. Great waitress--very friendly. Would definitely go again.

Wonderful Staple of Nashville
I always enjoy The Capitol Grille. I love the food and the creativity with which it is put together. There is always something interesting and new about each dish I've had, but Chef Tyler basically lets the food itself, the freshness, command the dish. I love the changing of the menu to incorporate this freshness and the availability of local ingredients. And the service... from the time I am greeted by the valet, throughout the restaurant, and back out to pick up my car, the service is always friendly, welcoming, and exceptional.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved it.... Amazing food
Loved it.... Amazing food and selection. The best meal we had all weekend while visiting Nashville.

Great experience at Capitol Grille
We ate dinner after a TPAC performance. The restaurant is beautiful. We had delicious Nova Scotia oysters and a bowl of the potato and leek soup (fabulous!). My wife had scallops and I had the fish special. Both were delicious. My wife's macaroni and cheese side dish was also outstanding. I was not as excited by the farm greens and beans that I had, but I didn't leave any. We wound up taking enough home for lunch. Our drinks (French 75 and the double-oaked Woodford Reserve) were excellent. My wife and I followed our server's wine recommendations (thanks, Ian!), much to our satisfaction. I would never have ordered a pinot noir with that fish, but they went very well together. The service was superb. The meal was pricey but well worth it.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
highlight of trip
We came to the GA/Vandy game and brought a group of 12 here for dinner. Had to have two tables of six which was so much better than one huge table. Both tables had great food and the two different waiters were wonderful! Two couples were so impressed, they asked for menus to take home as souvenirs!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I went to Capitol Grille for dinner on our first anniversary: we loved it! The service was excellent and so was the ambiance. If you're looking to impress, then this is the place. Capitol Grille runs its own farm, allowing them to make your dishes with the freshest of ingredients. The quality really shows. I would highly recommended this place to anyone looking for a nice place for a special occasion.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a great meal we had at Capitol Grille! The service was impeccable. I was very impressed with everything about this restaurant. We had lamb two ways, one of which was a cassoulet and it was amazing. My mother had monkfish which was grilled perfectly and the I had duck breast. We had the beets and greens as extra sides and they arrived in little caste iron skillets and were piping hot and wonderful. From the minute we arrived to the time we left we were impressed. This is an expensive meal, but when food is this good that doesn't seem such an issue. Go there if you are in Nashville!

We so enjoyed the drinks before dinner in your beautiful and comfortable bar area. Following was one of our favorite dinners ever! Visiting from Philadelphia, we loved the incredible hospitality and food that was over the moon delicious!
The Capital Grille is now in our top 3! Can't wait to return!

Seasoned and very professional team.
They pace the meal to make shows on time without rushing.
Food is always good and the dining room is always elegant.

Went to Nashville for a girls weekend celebrating one of our Birthday's. We had a lovely dinner before a show and our server Ian D was superb.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
My favorite hotel and restaurant to spend my special and weekend occasions. The Hermitage Hotel can accommodate even a casual lunch but give it a classy flair.

The Ever Perfect Sunday Brunch
Sunday Brunch at the Hermitage Hotel Capital Grill was excellent ! Eggs Benedict and Jack Daniels breakfast Sandwich were excellent and omelet was very good also, but heavy with goat cheese . ( just in case you don't like goat cheese) Service, bloody mary's and pancakes all added to round out a perfect meal. We will definitely be back!
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Sophistication and food quality to rival any found in a major city ! Beautiful setting, farm fresh foods cooked and flavored to perfection.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our first visit - the food was very good and the service was fantastic. We'll be back.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is a very nice restaurant. The service was excellent and the atmosphere very relaxing and romantic. Dinner was good, but not exceptional. I had the chocolate creme brulee for dessert and found it to be too rich. I love chocolate but this dessert needed a fresh element to temper the richness. The shortbread cookie was nice, but again, too rich to be paired with the brulee. I would certainly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Anniversary Dinner
Had a great dinner provided by exceptional staff. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was a compliment. Will definitely be back.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was wife's birthday and
It was wife's birthday and the hostess and server wished my wife happy bday right away. Excellent meal and service. I brought a bottle of wine and they did not charge a corkage fee(I did purchase a bottle)
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful overall experience
We wanted a very special dinner experience during our brief visit to Nashville. Beginning with the gracious and professional phone encounter with Jonathan through our arrival and the entire meal, it was exceptional. The food, wine and service earned this highest rating!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Local food focus
The food was sourced as close as possible and everything was wonderful. A great wine list made for a wonderful overall dinner. We'll be back!

Best food I've had in years! Not cheap but worth it. Expensive but great wine list. Amazing service!
