Diner Reviews
  • "The dining experience was excellent. Our waiter was friendly, gave great advise, had a wonderful sense of humor and was respectful of our personal conversation. I drove a distance to meet a friend here, and would do so again. I loved the neighboring area, and plan to return to explore. The restaurant was beautiful, the bathroom was clean and the dining area was spacious. We were able to enjoy privacy and community at once."

  • "My friend and I enjoyed lunch at The Capital Grille-Chevy Chase. We both had the grilled shrimp salad. It was superb. The servers (both named Michael) were polite and attentive without being intrusive. There was a bit of noise from the open kitchen, but the overall experience was wonderful."

  • "We had a private dining room and had a great time: fantastic personalized service and an outstanding steak dinner with an oyster entree (best oysters in a long time!!) and the Delmonico (rib-eye) steak + side-orders. Add to that a great selection of (American) wines - a perfect evening,"

  • "My wife and I recently enjoyed a nice evening here. We usually come here for their great steaks but we were in the mood for seafood and were not disappointed. We ate oyster and shrimp for appetizers, good salads, and had the parmesan encrusted sole. The sole was extremely fresh and it was cooked perfectly. We were surprised by the very large portions, which is something we rarely see when ordering fish in DC. Our waiter was Akim and he is a true professional who knows how to provide great service and just the right amount of attention together with inside tips and flexibility on the menu. The restaurant was crowded (but they don't crowd the tables together here) but Akim handled it well and delivered great service."

  • "thanks again for a great dining experience. we celebrated my mother in law's 79th birthday and Mike was a fabulous host as server. The food is always consistent and while it is our "go to" place this was my in-laws first CG experience. we are fans of Capital Grille and will return time and time again!"

  • "Spinach and bacon salad was tasty, but the porterhouse was rather uneventful. Plenty of better steakhouses in town. Don't waste your money here."

  • "The food and service are quite remarkable, from the serving of bottled water to the personal note from the chef on the take-home bag I got at the end. While it is expensive, it is well worth the investment for an excellent dining experience."

  • "I normally have steak, but they had a Chilean Sea Bass on the menu and I decided to try it. It was bland, so I was diappointed. I was also disappointed with the Coconut Cream Pie. It had big chunks of coconut in it and dripping with syrup and I did not remember that it was made that way in my previous outings at the Penn Street location. The Coconut Cream Pie was much too sweet. The meal was a disappointment."

  • "We were a party of 12 and we were seated in a private room with a big square table all to ourselves, we had great wine, food, and service. This is our 5th or 6th visit to this restaurant and we have never been disappointed. Great steaks and seafood..."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "The ivory salmon special was a little overcooked, but was served well with spinach and sauce. The dry-aged sirloin was cooked just right, though the taste was rather strong. Service was excellent, as always. The side dish or green beans and tomatoes was tasty, but the beans were just barely cooked. Overall, food is done well, but it's an expensive meal, not something we will do very often!"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "The food is excellent but it's the little touches that propel this restuarant into a top rating. From the greeting at the door to the servers to the attention given to a special occassion, it's nice to be able to count on such a wonderful all around dining experience."

  • "Lunched with a colleague. Staff asks if you have time constraints (we did not) and guarantees service w/i your needs. Food and ambiance were great and our waitperson Julie was helpful as well as charming. Two course $18 lunch special morphs into something much pricier if you order any beverage ,but we'll no doubt be back"

  • "I haven't been to Capital Grille in years since the first time I went I didn't have a good experience. I heard this one was a good one to try. We were pleasantly surprised. The food, wine, appetizers, salad and desserts were all delicious. The service was excellent and would definitely recommend this to a friend."

  • "I came here for dinner for my one year anniversary with my boyfriend, and we could not have picked a better restaurant. The waitress came over with little heart decorations for our table and gave us a surprise anniversary dessert after our meal. The service was amazing and the food was just as good."

  • "I had a reservation for my boyfriend's birthday 2/9/2017, and it was the best ever. They had every detail ready to celebrate his special day with a birthday card, decorative confetti on the table, and a very nice area that we were seated. The food was SUPERB!!! We had the lamb chops, lobster mac n cheese, spinach, and the lobster and crab cakes. Everything was delicious!! The service was OUTSTANDING!!! I loved every minute of it!! I will be back, again, and again, and again if they keep this up."

  • "We celebrated a birthday there, they did a nice job decorating the table and they presented a nice card.The wine was good and the appetizers were excellent. However, our main entrees were mediocre. The Kansas steak was average, the chicken dish dry and the other steaks just average.The fish dish was excellent! When you drop $700 for a dinner, you expect an explosion of taste and textures however twice now we have been disappointed! There will not be a third time. I would suggest other venues when considering a high end restaurant."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "I love the consistency of this restaurant. I always know I will get a perfectly cooked, delicious steak. The lobster bisque was out of this world. The calamari was perfectly cooked and the peppers gave it just the right amount of spice. I ordered the filet and our table shared the asparagus and potatoes au gratin- everything was fabulous. Even though we were stuffed we could not pass up the chocolate espresso flourless cake- I would come back just to indulge in that dessert again!"

  • "we dined at Capital grille Friday, Jan 31st. Food was really good and portions are big. They gave us a nice table, server did a great job and wine selection was excellent. At the end of our dinner, I order my favorite glass of Hennessy - cognac. And here comes the surprise. First - the waiter brought me a glass of cognac full of ice. I just started laughing - who serves cognac over ice? He immediately took it back and brought me the same glass, without ice. The worst possible solution since the cognac was already very cold and as every restaurant staff know, cognac is served room temperature. Anyway, I did not enjoy it. Don't you have to teach your barman and waiters how to serve different kind of drinks?"

  • "We took our almost 2-year old granddaughter to dinner; it was a busy Saturday night. We sat downstairs by the bar at the "children's table". This was a wonderful large curved booth! My granddaughter sat between my husband and me. The staff immediately brought a coloring book and crayons. (Our granddaughter loves to color). Then our server asked if we would like a "kids" water, which she promptly brought - it was perfec--a small plastic cup with lid and straw! The staff was most accommodating, our food was great, as usual, and we had a terrific time! Thank you!!!"

  • "Capital Grille is among the more expensive restaurants, and given that fact, we were hardly impressed by the food. We ordered two steaks, and both were undercooked; one was sent back, while the other was tolerated. Neither was particularly flavorful, and we have found there to be numerous better places to enjoy steaks. One of the steaks came with crab, and it was dry and apparently had been prepared well in advance as part of the evening's "special" offering. On a positive note, the service was highly attentive and was the best part of the evening; regrettably, that did not make up for the meal. All in all, our experience was a huge disappointment and not an experience we intend to repeat."

  • "This was the first restaurant on Open Table where they actually read the notes for the dinner. When we arrived, they said Happy Anniversary. The table was very specially decorated by our waitress who was just awesome. I don't want to give away any surprises, but a specially occasion at Cap Grille is well worth it. Food was fabulous, staff was awesome and the whole evening was very elegant and a time to remember! Thank you for making our Anniversary so special!"

  • "Went to dinner with my family for my birthday because you can count on excellent food and service but not this time. They weren't very busy so no reason for a lack of attention to detail with both the food and service. One dish had to be sent back, side dishes were forgotten, and no candle in my dessert. We still had a fun evening and the wine was excellent."

  • "Having dined here just once before, we knew the restaurant and food was excellent, so was our first choice when selecting a restaurant to celebrate a birthday. I mentioned we were celebrating when making the reservation online, and from the moment we arrived until we left, we were treated extra special. Of course the food and service was excellent; and we appreciated the extra touches!"

  • "Let me start with good part. The decoration and the grand look of restaurant is one of the best I ever seen in DMV area. I loved the look of the whole place. The furniture, the carpets and the wall decorations. However... with all that look, the tableware were outdated and very boring. took away the whole side of food presentation. The food was so disappointing. 1)The food availability/variability of food on the mean was just so limited that it is surprising. 2) I don't expect them to have a large overwhelming large menu but it was just not enough for people who know about food 3) usually if u have a small menu like that restaurants specialize in their few dishes but that not the case. the food they only had was not even all that..."

  • "We happened to go on restaurant week, which we didn't know until we got there. There were plenty of items to choose from on the special menu. I ordered salmon, which was a little undone in the middle but perfectly spiced and juicy. My husband ordered steak and it melted in his mouth. The staff was extremely attentive but not overbearing. We loved it!"

  • "They gave bagged salad that you buy from the discount grocery store as the appetizer salad, the waitress was nice but came back to the table about 4 times since she forgot our orders. It was clear just by the way we were treated and the presentation that they were giving us subpar service since we were there for restaurant week. Definitely will not be returning and will tell people to not go there for restaurant week or any other week for that matter"
