    Based on excellent lunches there, we decided to put our family Thanksgiving into the hands of The Capitol Grill. Wonderful! Really good, prompt service for our party of 9, even though the place was packed. Fantastic cranberry sauce! One diner had dry turkey, which was quickly changed out for a new plate. We felt very well-cared for and will put this on our list for next year.

    With the exception of the lobster bisque, which smelled fishy and caused my wife to not be able to keep her meal down. The rest of the meal , service, and atmosphere was great . The lamb , steak and shrimp potions of the meal were excellent . I sent a complaint to the restaurant expecting at least an apology, but received nothing after almost a week. I will not recommend this restaurant or return either.

    I have dined at Capital Grille Many times for special occasions and simply for the joy of dining there. The food is always excellent and the service is beyond expemlary. This time it was with my girlfriends for the triple threat birthday party. The wine was outstanding, the food (combination steak and lobster) was excellent and our waiter, Joe, was a delight. I am sure as the night went on we were a bit challenging, but we continued to receive excellent service, excellent food and more than enough excellent wine. We love that lavish enviroment, comfortable, tasteful and you always feel like it is a special occassion when you are at the Capital Grille

    The service level from the moment we entered the Grill was outstanding. The folks at the front greeted us, recognized I had a special request regarding a quiet table and immediately worked to resolve that request. The server at the table was very professional and did not intrude on our business meeting.

    A bit too dark-wood masculine but handsome, the restaurant is exactly what it bills itself as, a destination spot for carnivores. The steaks we had were impeccable, the au poivre sauce delish and the mashed potatoes only slightly too liquid. The smoked salmon appetizer was wonderful. The restaurant could do with a different bread provider. The breads were booooring...

    Brought European guests to dine on American steak, which is a 'must do' for Intl folks. While the steaks did not disappoint, the slow service & curt attitude of the staff did. The table wasn't ready,(a time honored tradition to add a round of drinks to the tab). Followed by a request for a "coke, no ice" order at the bar (typical of Europeans) apparently has never been heard before. Though asked for 2X, a coke w/ a glass full of cubes was served. When asked a 3rd time, the annoyed bartender said "Enjoy your warm coke"(!??). Once seated, it took15+ min before the Server found us. Pre-occupied + inattentive the entire meal, he missed a side-order & seemingly disappeared. Despite all this, the quality of the meal held up to the expectations.

    We went to the Capital Grill to celebrate our 37th wedding anniversary. The restaurant staff and establishment couldn't do enough to make our evening special. From a decorated table to champagne the whole evening gave us that feeling of being special. Our waiter, Brandon, couldn't do enough to present the meal carefully and set the tone of celebration. We would definitely return to this Capital Grill.

    I love the decor and booths. Growing up the better places had more booths and they are comfortable and private. The only suggestion is the Ceasar salad should be crispier. It was limp, as if it had been sitting prepared earlier. The filets were wonderful and the perfectly prepared vegetables of any place I have been in years. I will be going sooner than later.

    I made reservations for four. I notated 1 vegetarian was joining. When we arrived I mentioned the vegetarian was dinning. The waiter informed us to call ahead and let the restaurant know next time. This is rather annoying as this step was already taken. The waiter recommended a salad and the salad had anchovies. DO NOT EAT HERE IF YOU ARE A VEGETARIAN

    *Porcini Rubbed Delmonico with 15-Year Aged Balsamic was excellent and perfectly cooked. The filet was pretty standard. The calimari was a bit soggy for my taste, but had a great spicy flavor. Spoiler alert-The espresso chocolate cake is not a cake, but more of a soft fudge like consistency. My wife liked it. I was excepting bread like cake.

    OK, so I can't hold Capital Grille completely accountable for mediocrity in meat. I was craving a filet, didn't want to go far. Seated 20 min after our open table resv time with a "welcome to restaurant week" I should have known. Walked through the entire restaurant to be seated in the back room which was only being filled to accommodate the "I want a meal for $40" crowd. I requested main dining room and got an "I'm sorry were full tonight". Then we were left for dead....our waiter was new to serving so we gave him a break. Food was meh, environment, icckk, and I am now left with a sub par impression. Sorry, probably my bad for going on such a pre-prepped mass produced kind of night. Sticking w J & G further up the road!

    We celebrated our 10 year anniversary at The Capital Grille on Camelback because we always wanted to go there. And were we surprised. Great service and attention to detail like a rose on the table with hearts spread out on the table when we arrived. A free champagne toast and dessert was also included. Not to mention the steak that I could cut with my knife. I had to ask why they even bothered with bringing me the steak knife! My wife's halibut special was a bit overcooked on the edges, but overall she really enjoyed her meal. Great place to bring your wife or girlfriend for a special occasion. Be sure to mention to them what the occasion is when you are booking your reservation so they can "get it right!"

    The only compliant I had was the deceiving way the server managed to make my lunch an expensive affair. They have a lunch menu with some items that are reasonably priced so I went with something a little smaller. Then the server asked what type of salad I wanted with it, I thought it came with it but no, alas, it did not and it added another $10 to my bill. Had I known that I wouldn't have ordered an extra side to go with my lunch. All of the food was delicious but I really didn't like the way I was tricked into ordering more food and then go charged for it. At the end of the day I wrote the whole experience off as a decadent lunch but I'll be more careful next time.

    We ate lunch at The Capital Grille because of their plate specials. My dining companion had the lobster roll which was described as outstanding! I had the scallops served on a bed of creamed corn it was excellent. Given the plate lunch is 16$ which includes either a soup or a salad plus a side, it is very good value for money. Plus you get the exceptional Capital Grille service!

    Although I am not a fine dining expert by any stretch this was one of the best meals I have ever had. We went for our anniversary and everything was beyond what we could have expected. Wine list was excellent, food was outstanding, and ambiance was great. If you are there over the summer I would recommend the Generous Pour Wine event, it was like a wine tasting table side.

    My latest experience at Capital Grille was wonderful. We were celebrating my birthday and as we sat down, we were offered a complimentary glass of champagne for a special birthday toast. The champagne was excellent. Not only did we receive outstanding service but the food was excellent and the ambience was perfect for a celebration. The restaurant even provided a hand written card wishing me a happy birthday and decorated the table with confetti. As we finished a wonderful meal, I was presented with a piece of flourless cake with a candle. A fitting end to a wonderful night. I would recommend Capital Grille for all future celebrations or just a night with your special someone.
