  • "It was a great experience, we got there early for the generous pour, so we went to the bar and both bar tenders were grest. They started us on the different wines and when we went to our table Jim started us on the wines. They did not rush us st all and in fact Melissa came to our table to let our t t you another wibe, and so did Jim, fantastic will always go back."

  • "Pricey but definitely worth it. Food was absolutely divine and our server Lawrence was funny, knowledgeable and was always around when needed but never pushy. My date and I tried quite a few of the recommended specials and were definitely not disappointed!"

  • "We ordered the special "bone-in" filet. All 3 of us received our filet rare after ordering medium. When we trimmed the actual filet off of the bone, it netted less than 4 oz. Pretty shameful for a $67 entree. Unfortunately we were unable to complain since there was too little left on our plates by the time our server arrived. Not wanting to cause a scene, we just sat and drank. And when I say rare, there was so much grizzle and vein in our filet that of the 4 oz portion, at least half was no chewable and ended up back on our plate. We should have known better that this was not our night. When we first arrived on time for our opentable reservation, we waiting over 20 minutes for a table. Something to due with a concert. Whatever"

    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Food and service was great. Would have liked to linger on the patio to enjoy the music and dessert until my husband and I realized that many of the diners were smoking. I the hostess should have informed us that smoking was allowed outside. We are so used to no smoking inside or outside on the New York area that we did not even think to ask. I would go back, but I would not sit outside."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We arranged a business dinner because the noise level is low. The seafood platter was outstanding, the "Generous Pour" promotion allowed us to taste of whole range of wines, all of which were excellent. Service was top-notch and the quality of the steaks and sides was outstanding. Will definitely be back soon."

  • "My husband and I celebrated our 8th Anniversary here recently and it was delightful. The service by Natalie was amazing and her recommendations were spot on. I had the tenderloin and lobster tails and it was fantastic! They brought us out a gorgeous anniversary dessert at the end of the night. Certainly would go back!"

  • "from our initial greeting ,continuing on throughout the evening,food and service were great. we even got the table we requested, despite it being a busy Saturday night. The only negative was the failure to volunteer the price of a very expensive "pushed" special,especially since we had just asked the price of a lobster special.I thought that $58 for a bone-in filet was excessive, considering that it was described as a 10 oz steak with a 6 oz bone.This special was pushed at every table within earshot. If I go back ,I will be much more careful before ordering any house specials."

  • "For the most part my family and I had a great experience. Great food, great service, but I have had many dinners for the same if not less on bill totals and left more satisfied as far as quality of food and drinks. Great restaurant but there are better overall choices in the Baltimore inner harbor to choose from..."

  • "My boyfriend and I enjoyed a meal at The Capital Grill in the Inner Harbor and thoroughly enjoyed everything about our experience. The ambiance was similar to that of most upscale steakhouses, but without the stuffiness. Some people were wearing jeans while others were dressed in business attire - bot were equally appropriate. I got the New York Strip with Kona crust and the shallot butter. So darn good. We had the calamari appetizer, which was also good. It had a bit of a kick so if you're averse to spicy foods, then this might not be your thing. My boyfriend had the filet and lobster tails, which he loved. For dessert. The chocolate espresso flourless cake I was very happy with. The strawberry sorbet was refreshing and delicious."

  • "My husband and I went there for our 7 year wedding anniversary and we had a lovely time. There was outdoor seating with a view of the inner harbor but we decided to stay inside with the airconditioning, next to the kitchen in a small private booth which was very romantic. Our waiter was entertaining, knowledgable, attentive. Our food was amazing - I got steak tenderloins and lobster tail which melted in your mouth. They have pineapple infused vodka martinis which are absolutely delicious. The price was well worth it in my opinion - would definitely go back. I would also be interested in checking out their happy hour - the bar area has a cool vibe as well."

  • "Fantastic food from appetizers to dessert! Only thing we would change would be to keep steaks and sides hot longer. Cooled off really fast."

  • "Our dinner at The Capital Grille was excellent. The two couples were co-celebrating their wedding anniversaries this night. We were greeted by the Hostess with a "Congratulations on your Anniversaries" which set the tone for the evening. Next our waiter Ali, greeted us with 4 flutes of a very tasty champagne which added greatly to our celebration. After a exceptional meal, best halibut dinner I've ever tasted, Ali brought us desert to share. Our evening could not have been nicer. We'll all be back."

  • "Restaurant was not worth it! Food was good not great especially for the price! Steaks were fair and did not appear to be top cuts (USDA Prime). A lot of hype and sizzle. Not sure if their own grade of a choice like Omaha Steaks promotes and then delivers just average beef. Best part of meal was the bake potato!!"

  • "we had reservations in the dining room but after having cocktails in the bar area, we decided to sit in a cozy booth there. we were celebrating both of our birthdays and the waitress brought out two cupcakes with candles. we plan on returning there when we visit Baltimore in the fall"

  • "One of the best places to meet Mr Steak...the meat is just out of this world. The portions come in "never run out of food" state. I remembered the bread to be better, didn't like the bread this time. Dessert was fenomenal and the service we got was on the spot. A keeper if you ask me."

  • "Ate with three friends. First time there in Baltimore. Have been to DC & Scottsdale sites. Food just as well-prepared. One pound baked potato was excellent."

  • "This was not my first Capitol Grill experience- but it was by far the best. It was a busy day-appeared to be fully booked at all times but there were no delays in service, glass refills or appetizers and entrees. Everything was SPOT ON! My waiter (Albert) told me they were out of 3lb lobsters... (I only came for the LOBSTER) - but he went to the chef and they took two 1lb lobsters and stuffed them both to create this MONSTROSITY of excellence - I'M STILL GRINNING!! EVERYTHING WAS GOOD- the steaks, the mashed, the asparagus, the creamed corn. I am a reluctant foodie, but Capitol Grill raises the bar very high for anyone. GREAT JOB!!! I'll be back.."

  • "From the time you enter you will know you have come to a place where service and food will be of the highest quality. The staff was attentive yet discreet and knowledgeable of the menu items. The bone-in sirloin was grilled to perfection and the truffle fries were well seasoned and balanced. Don't miss the lobster bisque that will lightly dance on your tongue with its subtle reminder of sherry. Capital Grille is now on my "Don't Miss It" list on my next trip to Baltimore."

  • "Have dined at this restaurant over a dozen times. Food and service are consistently excellent. My most recent experience was the first time some food was not prepared as ordered. When we brought it to the attention of our server he, and the manager, immediately saw to it that new steaks were ordered and they even replaced our side orders to assure that everything was hot and fresh. Clearly our "re-order" was prioritized because the food was out very quickly and was, of course, perfect. Naturally the manager, and our server, were genuinely apologetic, and we were completely satisfied at how quickly the situation was rectified. This is one fine restaurant where they handle everything well - even the occasional mistake."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "I booked our reservation a month early for our wedding anniversary dinner. I thought they would've put us in a nice table, private booth, or outside. Instead, we were seated at a tiny table in a doorway with high traffic, where the service staff kept bumping our tables and chairs. You would think they would go the extra mile for those celebrating special occasions, but it didn't happen. Didn't like seeing people in shorts and t-shirts eating in such a nice restaurant, as well. Wish a stricter dress code was enforced. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "The service was terrible. Food came out so fast that we never received our appetizer. My husband food was undercooked and had to be sent back. When it was returned, my family had already finished our meals. The manager came to apologize and said he was sending over Truffle fries. I told him we already had an order and he said now you will have another one. My family didn't like them anyway, so this was a waste. The manager was rude! He acted superior and made his gesture sound more like an insult instead of an apology. The food was enjoyable but from a restaurant of this caliber, I expected a more pleasurable experience."

  • "Went for our anniversary and it was nearly perfect. From the celebratory glasses of champagne to the anniversary dessert platter all was spectacular. The service was superb, the steaks perfectly prepared, the wine choices excellent. We highly recommend the Capital Grille Baltimore for your next special event."

  • "This is a "10 foot rule" restaurant. Everything looks fine from 10 feet away -- the space, the food, the wait staff, etc. But get up close, and the story is very different. Food is unimaginative and overpriced (a $45 steak should be nothing short of exceptional), presented with some flair but unsatisfying. For example, an oyster appetizer which I think was close to $15 consisted of 4 tiny oysters peeking out from a monstrous heaping of ice. Waiters are dressed for the part but don't know their script well. The restaurant is furnished for eye appeal (like most are) but the shiny veneer is thin -- fake flowers, cheap furnishings, etc. For the money, there are much better dining experiences in the area."

  • "I booked a reservation here because of the mother's day brunch advertised including omelets made to order , French Toast with berries , carving station etc. When we arrived found out they were not offering any of those and had a standard more lunch type brunch ( just a lobster eggs benedict ) . Again we were expecting more breakfast type items so had I know would have not made reservations here. Just threw us for a loop so don't think we enjoyed the brunch as much because of it "
