    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.

    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!

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.

    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

    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!

    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.
