Diner Reviews
  • "See my other reviews, but a great dinner and a great place- the finest in the chain. Bone in filet- 16 oz- was great. Done Medium Rare + it was a machine. They say they might add this as a normal menu item soon. The sides were great, as usual. Lobster Mac, Au Gratin, Creamed Corn. Dessert was good- coconut cream pie always a great item here in Atlanta! Service was good, but we've had better here. I couldn't seem to keep the Coke flowing to the table... had to keep asking. They were a bit busier than the other night, but still..."

  • "This was where my mother wanted to go for lunch on her 88 th birthday. It could not have been a more wonderful experience! The staff was great, the food wonderful, and my mother was even given a birthday gift as well as complimentary dessert for the table. We were made to feel so welcome and were even given printed pictures of our party! Thanks so much to the Capital Grille, our server Alexandra, and the entire staff for making my mother's birthday so special. (As a side note,when my mother comes to lunch here with her other 80+ year old friends,she is treated like royalty. This tells me that it is not only special occasions that instigate this special service ,but that it is a standard of this restaurant). Well Done!"

  • "Food was great- they do the creamed corn the best, the coconut cream pie is tops, and the service from Heather and team- impeccable. The 16oz Bone In Filet was really done nicely. Overall, a fantastic experience and one we make sure to repeat whenever in Atlanta. Have been to Seattle, DC, NYC, Las Vegas, Denver, and Orlando- this is the best."

  • "This was a special occasion for us. It was our anniversary. They not only put hearts on our table but they surprised us with a lovely dessert with a candle in the center. But the best part, the waitress took our picture and presented it a cardboard frame."

  • "I had a first date dinner and we started with a drink at the bar. The bartender Kurt made a fantastic Long Island Ice Tea and was very knowledgeable about the wines for my date. Kurt made paying very simple and transferred the bill over to my dinner tab, which I thought was great. My server was a very nice young man also named Curt. His service was impeccable and he also went out of his way to see if the chef could cook something off the menu, which they did! Curt really seemed to understand the dynamics of my table and worked very effectively at providing excellent service and still allowing us to talk. His timing on checking on us was perfect"

  • "As usual, the atmosphere is amazing. My wife and I chose to go out to a nice place and the Buckhead Capital Grille is always our favorite. I have never had anything but the best each time I visit here. I did have a small issue this past time I visited with my steak preparation but they were more than willing to fix it anyway they could. I would recommend The Buckhead Capital Grille to anyone looking for fine dining with a great atmosphere."

  • "My husband and I celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary by dining at the Capital Grille. This was our first time at the restaurant; we chose it based on the high/favorable reviews it has received on Open Table and Trip Advisor. Fortunately, Capital Grille definitely lived up to its reputation and surpassed our expectations. We have eaten at countless fine steakhouses across the U.S. and abroad, and few can hold a candle to the Capital Grille's filet mignon. It was juicy, tender, flavorful, and melted in our mouths! We had creamed spinach, which was just okay, but the mashed potatoes were delicious. We have found our new favorite local steakhouse...we'll definitely be dining there again."

  • "Lobster and crab cakes. Delicious. Lobster mac and cheese. Delicious. Wife had the salmon and I had the porcini rubbed ribeye. Both outstanding. Expensive, yes. But worth the splurge. Seriously the steak was really, really good. From the cut and selection to the aging to the dry rubbed spices topped with the balsamic? Seriously? Insanely delicious. The nighttime view of the Atlanta sky line is pretty sweet as well. Go and enjoy!"

  • "I hadn't been in years and my husband had never been. He's a steak connoisseur so I was interested to see what he thought. He loved the steak. I mean LOVED!! I had the Chilean Sea Bass and it was the best I've ever had!! We will be back!!"

  • "The service and ambiance was excellent. That said, our medium rare filet came out medium and when sent back, it then came out perfectly cooked on the inside but barely room temp on the outside. The lobster was cool. Moving on to dessert my cappuccino was barely lukewarm, the requested expresso was equally so. We sent back both beverages and on the second run it was fine. Not sure what the deal is, but we will think again on this one. For a $300 dinner for two people you expect perfection. This was outrageous."

  • "My husband and I spent a very relaxing night out at the Capital Grille- Buckhead. Our Server Maureen was exceptional! She was so careful not to serve me anything that I was allergic to; I felt at ease ordering my meal. The meal was very good. My Husband had the crab/lobster cakes which he thought were very moist and delicious. Our steaks were tender and tasty and NOT oversalted like so many restaurants tend to do. I would not recommend the lobster tail addition. They were bordering on languostines in size and very fishy, not at all worth the upcharge. The Stags Leap syrah was excellent. We noticed many birthday and anniversary celebrations all around us so I would say this is a great place to celebrate!"

  • "I went there to have a birthday dinner with my boyfriend. The staff was more than courteous, letting us be seated an hour before our reservation time (on a Saturday night). The stuffy atmosphere you would expect from a restaurant of this caliber was non-existent. Everyone was really nice and relaxed, while remaining extremely professional. The atmosphere was lovely...you could actually hear yourself talk! Lastly, the food was amazing! I will definitely be returning. "

  • "We had an incredible night at the restaurant. Food was good even though the steak wasn't the best we had. However, the service we received made the night so fun and enjoyable. I have a pet peeve about waiters who say 'oh everything is great' when you ask for recommendations, but our server asked for our price point and taste preference before recommending his personal favourites and the best options we had for both the drinks and food. The wine went so well with the food and the lobster tail addition was great! We also went at about 8pm in the evening and was treated to a lovely view of the sunset around the buckhead area."

  • "Maybe our expectations were too high. We had always heard such great things about this place. Don't get me wrong ... Food, service and ambience was very good. However somehow it didn't come all together for us. "

  • "I been here few times before and both service and food was always good except this time. Not sure if it's a long weekend or during the buckhead restaurant week that the restaurant is crowd. Normally we would expect this type of high-end restaurant the server would check on us about the food and service occasionally and also clean the table before the main course, but we could barely see the server and he don't even introduce us the special menu of the day. The waiter was rush all the time and we would need to ask the other waiter/waitress walk by to fill our water. We ordered the filet mignon but the surface was burned. The quality seem to drop a lot lately and not worth the price anymore, will not recommend a friend to go again. "

  • "This was my second visit to The Capital Grille - and I was delighted to introduce it to my mother and cousin. The fried lobster tail appetizer was scrumptious. My mother, who never finishes her soup, inhaled every bit of her lobster bisque - it was that tasty. For dessert, the three of us shared a slice of the coconut pie - which is huge, and absolutely delectable. Love this place, love the food. Yes, it's a bit pricey; but it does not disappoint."

  • "Took my younger cousin to a graduation lunch at CG to introduce him to a fine dining experience (and because it was Buckhead Restaurant Week). Had the top sirloin, clam chowder and cheesecake & expresso cake desserts. Meat was asked Medium rare - medium....was closer to medium. Service was outstanding - our waitstaff was polite, helpful and not pretentious. This was my first time to Capital Grille - on par with other high-end steakhouse experiences, without feeling like a chain. My younger cousin was blown away by the food and the special treatment he received (thanks for the comp'd cappucinos to help him celebrate). Based on my experience, I'll probably bring the wifey for our next special occasion."
