    The Capital Grille is a destination for special occasions and as usual we found excellent service, excellent food and wine (not to mention the Stoli Doli) and the overall experience was just top notch. No surprises; each time we dine at the Capital Grille, it's been fantastic for steak and seafood.

    I love this place because i have never gotten bad food. It is always exceptional and cooked exactly as ordered, which is as it should be but is not always the case at other places. I always wait for Dine in or a very special occasion as it is a bit pricey but definately worth the splurge every now and then.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 8/25/2014
    The area we were seated in was EXTREMELY loud with several large party tables and our table for 2 was swallowed up in the noise. I could barely hear myself think let alone talk with my dinner date. The food was absolutely amazing, however the timing of our service was not up to par. We waited 30+ minutes from the time we finished our appetizer until we received our entrees. Also had to wait too long to receive the check after finishing dessert.

  • Anniversary at Capital Grille
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/24/2014
    We had dinner for the fifth year in a row to celebrate our anniversary at the Capital Grille. The food was amazing as always. Unfortunately the service, while far from mediocre, was not the exceptional service we have come to find at this restaurant. Usually the service is extraordinarily attentive and personalized. However, this evening it was less so. Long waits between courses left us wondering what was going on. The waiter cleared the entree plates, never asked us if we wanted coffee, and then disappeared for 15 minutes. It turned out that he was waiting for the dessert to be set up on a special plating for our anniversary but again we had no idea why we did not see him for the 15 minutes.

    I come to this Capital Grille location often and every year for a group Birthday dinner during Restaurant Week. I made a 7PM reservation and yet waited 45 minutes for our table! Clearly the restaurant was overbooked. In addition our waiter was stingy with "The Generous Pour" wine service. He 1/4 filled our glasses so we had to awkwardly ask for multiple refills. The worst part of the dinner was my steak (which is normally the highlight). I asked for Medium & my friend requested rare. We both got rare steaks! I had to send mine back and when it returned, it was well done and clearly microwaved. Totally inedible! The meal was credited but the manager didn't stop by the table to ask what went wrong.

    Fruit fly in wine, steak was over cooked and the service was extremely lacking. I took my family to celebrate a birthday. The noise level was ridiculous. Couldn't hear the person next to me without shouting. I realize it was restaurant week but for such a high end place my expectations were higher.

    Reservations for 12:45 and arrived in the parking lot by 12:35. We circled the parking lot for twenty minutes. There was nothing. However, there were about 25 spots with white cones in them....reserved for valet....This Capital forces their guests to valet whether they want to or not, there's no alternative option. We actually drove up the path and parked in the Seasons 32 parking lot and walked. Had I not made reservations we were ready to just walk into Seasons32 instead. They need to do something about parking and not pressure guests to pay an additional 25$ to park on top of an already very expensive lunch. We were frustrated with the beginning experience but as always, the service and food glossed it over and kept us happy!

    You can always tell if a restaurant is special by how you are treated during Restaurant Week. I went here with a friend, and the food was terrific and the service exceptional. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and the accommodated a special request I made regarding my dessert. I also love that they serve iced tea with simple syrup, which will actually dissolve in the cold tea. Highly recommend for lunch, dinner or the bar.

    Capital Grille lived up to it's reputation and truly supplied a chance to try their excellent fare at an affordable cost. This was the original aim of Restaurant Week, which had been somewhat lost in recent years as in addition to the loss of participation, most restaurants that were participating used a menu that had nothing to do with the restaurant's strength and was basically designed to convince you to order off their standard menu (or punish you for not having done so). In contrast we found that not only was the food top notch last night, but the Capital Grille's service was welcoming and treated us like VIPs, in contrast to the dismissive attitude we had experienced elsewhere in prior years.

    So much lag time all night. We should have just purchased a bottle of wine. Asked for extra taste of cab to finish with our kona sirloin but she got busy. Gave us a "splash" when we were done eating. Also, not allowed to have Riesling with dessert. We have been here often & I was so disappointed with the service. As soon as anniversary party of 8 showed up we were IGnORed. We couldn't even flag down our waitress. We wanted coffee after dinner but she said "I assume you are all through" and gave us our bill. We typically have pre-cocktails, appetizers, a bottle of wine,dinner, desserts, and coffee but instead we were RUSHED out the door! On a Tuesday! Not the typical service...awful.

    First time I have not given Capital Grille ***** - 5 stars. I know it's restaurant week, but overcooked filet - such a waste! Server got the manager, manager took it back to kitchen, and new filet arrived shortly. Then our bill was incorrect, and the waitress tried to convince me it wasn't her fault. I didn't really care whose fault it was, just fix it. If there is a problem at the table, typically a server will say Oh, I'm sorry, let me fix that. Nobody said that. She was gruff to say the least. Still my favorite restaurant though. Manag
