    It was a wonderful experience. The food was outstanding as well as the service . Our waiter was wonderful, friendly and very attentive and knowledgable in reference to the menu , food and wine. It was one of the best meals I have had in South Florida . We celebrated a birthday and I did not even have to remind our waiter about it since it was all taken care of when I made the reservation. We were made to feel very special. We will be back.

    Went for a Bon Voyage party. Food was mediocre and very very expensive. Returned my steak because it was extremely over cooked. Side dishes were bland and boring. Order coconut cream pie which did not taste like coconut. Spinach salad was a big slimy mess and no one touched it. Waiter never seemed concerned that all salads were not eaten. He just cleared the plates and moved on. The entire dinner was a rush job to turn the table. Never again.

    It's Capital Grille - what more needs to be said. The steaks are superb. I just wish some of the sides were avaialbe in 1/2 portions.This way you could sample two flavors instead of sharing just one.

    I had left a note when I made a reservation that I was going to propose to my girlfriend and asked if they could make the experience a little extra special and they nailed it! We were greeted kindly and brought to a table covered in little red hearts and rose petals. The restaurant was very beautiful and our waitress was awesome. We were treated with complimentary champagne and dessert due to our special occasion and they took a picture and printed it for us. It was an overall incredible experience and they didn't give away my secret that I was going to propose. I couldn't have been happier to have chosen this place for my proposal dinner. I highly recommend it! By the way the food was incredible!

    Probably one of the finest restaurant experiences we have had in So. Fla. There were 6 of us seated in a room in the back. Susan S. was our incredible server. She opened and served the wine like a pro...explained the various specials...gave us all the time we needed to chat before ordering... My wife and I each had a 2lb main lobster...3 had the New York strip and one had salmon, all prepared to perfection. The appetizers and side dishes were among the best we have had anywhere. The service was impeccable as was the whole experience. For an extra nice touch, the restaurant took a snapshot of the anniversary couple and we received the pix in a frame. They also validated your parking ticket. We are already planning our next visit

  • Disappointed at CG ..Ft lauderdale
    Boston
    Dined on 3/27/2014
    I recently dined at the CG Ft Lauderdale, which was very disappointing.I have dined there many times and have always enjoyed it in the past but always at the bar.This time it was in the dining room which was crowded and full of tourists in shorts and T shirts. My calamari appetizer was overcooked and soggy, I sent it back .The waiter let us know 3 times he had removed it from the bill as if he was doing us a favor and still expected to receive a tip on this item Capital Grille used to be a special place for dining now it appears to be nothing more than a main stream restaurant with deluxe prices and mediocre service! I find the CG in other cities, including Boston, NY DC and Providence to date to still maintain higher standards.

    I look the look and feel of Capital Grill. We were celebrating a birthday and the staff could not have been nicer or more attentive! The food was delish-- all parties except one had steaks-- filet, Delmonico and porterhouse. Each steak was prepared differently and they were all served exactly as ordered and all at the same time! The one chicken dish ordered was excellent. The sides, mushrooms, truffle fries, spinach and green beans were great-- flavorful, firm and fresh. Dessert of the flour less chocolate cake and cheesecake were shared and were spectacular-- creamy, rich and not too sweet! I will definitely be back and would highly recommend Capital Grill.

    Our experience was a good one at Capital Grill in Ft Lauderdale. The food was quite good and the service, as always was superb. Steve, our waiter was outstanding. We ordered Salmon and my wife had grilled shrimp. Both were very good. Although the prices were a bit high, overall, we enjoyed our experience and we would recommend this restaurant for a special occasion.

    Lobster Bisque, huge chunks of lobster, never had better, tenderloin w/lobster tails,melt in your mouth almost didn't need a knife to cut, husband had Kona crusted Sirloin again perfection, so food was fabulous, however it was our Anniversary which they went over and above any restaurant I have ever been to to make it extra special, rose petals and hearts on the table, Champagne toast, a fabulous dessert that I have no idea what it was (there were 2) and didn't think we had room for but we managed, they took our picture and gave us a copy and when we left I received a long stem red rose! Our Server Steve was very attentive without being over bearing, terrific! Needless to say I know where my next anniversary will be celebrated!

This one....well people in FL are a lil bit different. No way you are getting better seafood than in RI. Food was great but not like in RI. Waiter was great. If you are not from New England, you will be amazed. But if youre ever in RI do make sure to stop at the one in Providence.
