    my new inlaws were in the country for our wedding, and we took them to the harbor for their last night in town. all five of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals from start to finish. we arrived quite early, tired from walking around the harbor for most of the day, and we enjoyed drinks in the lounge area and ended up being shown to our table earlier than our reservation. our experience was relaxing an delicious, as always! we will definitely return to the capital grille again whenever we're looking for a good steak dinner, whether it's just my husband and I or with a group of family or friends.

    I would give the Capital Grille in Baltimore a 5 star, the food was outstanding, my family especially loved the lobster mac and cheese, and the crab cakes,they thought they were to die for.. I thought the steaks were amazing as well, especially the Porter house! The ambiance was classic, we were a family of 6 and we had this wonderful private room, plenty of room around a large round table. The service was excellent, our waiter Tim was great, I would take my family there again, whenever I am in the Baltimore area! And I recommend it highly!!

    Visited on a Saturday evening and therefore quite crowded but were seated upon arrival. We were asked if we would like to switch out our white napkins to a black one. After dining at Capital Grille restaurants for years this was a surprise. The Grand Plateau is a seafood platter and always fresh and delicious. Fried calamari and onion soup were outstanding. One of their specials, a filet on the bone was a treat as it is not available on most visits. The citrus glazed salmon is recommended for any salmon lover. The potatoes au gratin are creamy and can be shared. Another side dish we requested was asparagus wrapped in prosciutto which was tasty and crispy. Disappointed the clam chowder never arrived but the dessert made up for it. Delicious!

    It was awesome! Great food, Great service. My guy is very picky and he left satisfied and with a smile on his face. Our waiter was a quintessential professional, you would want to take him home. All of the staff made you feel welcome from the first time you walked into the place. The food was impeccable. I had a steak that brought tears to my eyes on first bite with augrautin potatoes and sauteed spinach. The wine list, very good and our waiter decanted our wine. I also had a grand maniere cognac. All for an incredible evening that will stay in the memory forever.

    The Capital Grille is without a doubt one of the best restaurants that we've been to in Baltimore! The service was excellent thanks to our server Kevin, and everything that we ordered was outstanding! I highly recommend the stuffed lobster tail, the seared halibut, and the lobster mac and cheese. We will definitely be returning in the near future!

Capital grill is my favorite place to dine with friends and family. My wife and I always get the same waiter Kevin who is wonderful!! We can't get past the cold seafood app platter, as well as the truffle fries!!

    First and foremost - you can't go wrong with the Capitol Grill. I cannot recall every getting a bad meal here. Where I was a bit disappointed. I requested a private table for a business meeting on the side. This did not work out as I had hoped. The server was a bit too quick clearing food as our guest was not done eating. Little details like this were to be desired. Otherwise - food was very good.

    Wonderful anniversary celebration at the Capital Grille. The service was top notch. The food was all perfectly prepared. The most notable dishes were the king crab salad and the lobster mac n cheese. The halibut and salmon were both wonderful, as were the desserts. To top it off, the management went out of their way to make it a very special anniversary celebration with several very pleasant surprises. We will definitely be back!

    When you are seated in a perfect booth and the waiter comes immediately, you have a good start. We each had a cocktail and time to enjoy it. Next we ordered salad, steak and spinach. You can share all side dishes. The steak was perfect, as was the entire meal. The waiter created a card in the computer for how we like our steak. He also gave us his name to ask for him again and we would. It was a great evening.

    Liz was very attentive and professional, Jimmy the manager came by to check how things were going. Food was flawless. Our 4 year old was given a coloring book and a DVD player. Turns out the DVD player was Jimmy's kids who out grew it. What a great manager who takes ownership. Just need a Capital Grill on the water now so we can boat over. Lacks a view but has a rich interior. Complimentary Valet parking caters to those used to convenience. One of our favorites when in Baltimore.

    We took our parents here for their 56th anniversary. They had seated the 7 of us in a quiet corner, as requested, so we could hear each other. They sprinkled tiny red hearts on the center of the table and delivered a beautiful, delicious dessert to them on a "Happy Anniversary" plate. The service was excellent and we were all quite pleased. The fact that we all enjoy each others company and are always grateful to be able to get together doesn't hurt, either!

    Great service as soon as we arrive. Complimentary valet, friendly host, attentive server. It was just a great experience. The sirloin I had was cooked great basically melted in my mouth. The lobster Mac and cheese had thick pieces of lobster and tasted delicious. I also ordered the truffle fries and sauteed spinach both excellent choices as well. The manager also came to our table just to see how myself and date were doing. I believe from start to finish this restaurant exceeded my expectation. I will be back again.

    Having generous pour coincide with restaurant week is always a plus. The wines were good with a good variety of the different grape varietals. This was the first time we were seated in the back room. The noise level was much lower back there on a Saturday night (and this was with every table taken). We could hear the difference as we walked through the dining areas. The filet was cooked to perfection. Having the creamed spinach and au gratin potatoes definitely rounds out the meal.

    We had another outstanding dinner at Capital Grill! We ordered from the restaurant week menu and everyone's steak was perfectly cooked as requested (medium rare). Their filet is consistently the best for flavor and tenderness. The service (Ali, you are the best!) was attentive and made the meal even more enjoyable. For my fellow gluten free diners: Capital Grill is knowledgeable and very accommodating about meeting the needs of gluten free diners even during restaurant week.

    Steaks were great....although Ruth's Chris steak with butter cannot be beat. These had excellent flavor and the sides were fantastic! Also the wine selection was incredible! The one thing that stood out was the staff. Scott, our waiter, and was excellent, several other wait staff attended to us (filling water glasses, etc.) and even two managers stopped by quickly to make sure we were being taken care of.

    We went for the restaurant week menu and each of my party was delighted with everything. I did eat way too much of all the delicious breads first. New England clam chowder was definitely one of the best I have ever had with the perfect "mouth feel". The side order of potatoes au gratin were excellent and the steak was the best I have ever had. Even the cheesecake was above and beyond. We enjoyed all of our server's recommendations.
