    My dinner guest and I both really enjoyed the calamari appetizer. He raved that it was the best calamari he had ever had. Our Porterhouse steaks were fantastic, perfectly done medium rare. Wine list is awesome and the bottle of wine we had was wonderful. Service was impeccable. Highly recommended.

    Corey was our server... one of the best waiters that I have experienced all over the world. This was my wife's and I first time going out since we had our second child and the staff couldn't be more helpful and wonderful for our meal. Truly a very memorable experience, and not a bad part to our experience.

    I dine out six times a month. First time having dinner here at Capital Ive always had lunch. Service perfect, food perfect and wine list is excellent. The bartender and wait staff are warm inviting and personable. Michelle are waiter was spot on with just enough attention and not hovering. Id highly recommend Capital and will be dining again.

    We have been to Capital Grilles in Boston, Naples, Philadelphia, and Indianapolis and they are all better than this one. Had to wait in bar for our table which was 20 minutes late in being ready. Usually not a problem because we can get a drink in the bar, but in 20 minutes no one ever waited on us and we were sitting and the bar in front of the bar. Calamari was soggy, everything else was fine, but not fabulous as usual at a Capital Grille.

    My wife and I went there for her birthday. The service was quick and efficient. I know that the servers split tips at the end of the night because my niece works at the one in Tampa, FL. there is always someone close by taking care of you. Food was exceptional. Atmosphere was exceptional. I told them it was my wife's birthday so we got free dessert and the whole experience made both of us feel special. It is pricey but well worth it.

    Really enjoyed our anniversary at Capital Grille. First time we've been here and was a great experience. Although they are known for their steaks, we were more intrigued with their side dishes and desserts. The steak was great but not as crusted (Kona crusted) nor seasoned as I had hoped. Given the cost per entree, about $45, I would have expected better. The service was phenomenal overall. We were treated like a king and queen as soon as we dropped our car off with the valet and continued through the entire meal. Given that we try to experience a new restaurant every anniversary, I am not sure when I'd come back to Capital Grille, but would recommend to others. If I were looking for the best steak in town, I would have to choose Chops.

    We dined to celebrate our anniversary. Because I made note of our anniversary in the reservation, heart shaped confetti was sprinkled on our table, a nice touch. We elected to try the "Generous Pour" promotion, and while it was nice to try several different exclusive wines, it took almost 30 minutes to get our first glass, and the pour was far from "generous". This meant waiting for the server to come back around to get another small pour. Overall, for $25 pp, I feel like we got an equivalent amount of wine, but should have just chosen a nice bottle for $50-$60. The food was excellent. We had smoked salmon for appetizer, and bone in filet for main course with Lobster Mac and cheese for side. Ambiance seems a little tired and stuffy.

    From the moment our large group entered the restaurant until the moment we left, our experience was superb. The service by everyone was attentive, friendly but not overbearing. Starting with the Fried Lobster appetizer and ending with the Chocolate Hazlenut Cake for dessert and all the salads, soups and main dishes in between were perfectly prepared and delicious. And we had the perfect bottle of wine to complement the dinner. Thank you for enabling our group to truly enjoy our total experience.

    I have visited various locations around the country and they are consistently good. We started with some oysters and salads, which were very solid. Dinner was steak, lobster and grouper - all were excellent and were accompanies by sides of potatoes and vegetables. We skipped dessert, but brought our own wine which was expertly served by our server (who was very good)
