    We dine here often and have always loved it. We live in the area and enjoy taking our friends here too. Saturday night I had steak and lobster. I just don't think it can get any better. Now if I can just get them to get me some stone crab claws!

    My husband and I came on a Sunday night and had a wonderful experience. Romantic atmosphere and quiet is what we were looking for and we got it. We skipped appetizers as we had been here before and we remembered the tasty bread they bring to the table. My husband ordered the tenderloin with lobster and I ordered the Roasted Chicken and both were equally delicious! For sides we had the Lobster Mac and Cheese which was amazing and the asparagus. This also seems to be a great place for special occasions as most of the table around us were celebrating either birthdays or anniversaries in which they decorate your table with confetti, take a picture of you, and offer free champagne and dessert.

    The menu is predictable and rather boring. The food was nothing special but expensive. If it's steak you want there are much better places in Atlanta to choose from. If you don't want steak the other options are not anything special. I had an $18 shrimp cocktail that I didn't even finish. I could make better at home.

    This was my first time dining here. We were greeted promptly and taken to a nice table in the back of the main dining room. Menus were presented along with an iPad for the wine/drink menu. The iPad is an overkill and I would prefer a normal wine menu. Server was friendly and helpful, but too chatty and attentive... felt almost motherly which was a turnoff. We started with the shrimp cocktail which was good, not outstanding. My wife had the salmon which was really great. I had the Porcini Rubbed Delmonico with 15-Year Aged Balsamic (ribeye smothered excessively in balsamic), it was a real letdown. I ended up scrapping as much of the balsamic off as I could, but still too much. Overall nothing special and priced too high for what you get.

    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.

    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.
