    Not very impressed with the food. I started with a cup of Butternut squash soup that seemed watered down. My wife really enjoyed her French Onion Soup. Our entrees were ok but other restaurants serve the same plates that are better. The service was not very good, but we find that to be true in most Dallas area restaurants.

    I've been a long-standing customer and enjoy it every time I return. It all starts with service and Steve, my server of choice, delivers every time. He connects well with my guests and is never hesitant to talk about the best choices of the evening. And he's spot on. The quality of the food never wavers. The fish choices are as good as the steak. The sides are great for sharing. The wine list is over-priced, but a careful eye will uncover some reasonably priced choices.

    Everything was really pretty good. My reservation was located, I got to change to a table (from a booth) and when my guests arrived they were shown to the table without any difficulty. The waiter was professional and the meal arrived in a reasonable time after we ordered. We were in the center of the main dining room, and it did get a little loud. As restaurants go, it wasn't terrible, but it was somewhat noisy for a business conversation.

    I am regular here and I usually get greeted by multiple hosts/servers. This time, however, no one greeted our table and it wasn't even crowded. Our waiter, Bill, although a sweet guy, was all over the place. At times, I thought he was going to spill something on me he was so shaky. It was a business lunch and his demeanor was less than professional as he brought out this ipad and tried to make goofy jokes to get us to buy a dessert when we were in a rush. It was an awkward experience, albeit an outlier (I hope).

    CaptnGeorge
    Dined on 10/25/2014
    I had a medium rare filet that was cooked to perfection, but unfortunately it had been seasoned with way too much salt before it got to the table. The wild mushroom side fish was also way to salty. Don't get me wrong, I like some salt on my food, but enough is enough. Also the green bean side was a bit too al dente for my taste. That said, the service is still impeccable.

    First, I highly recommend their signature drink, the Stoli Doli! So delicious! The server was very personable, friendly and highly professional. It is a little on the pricey side ($250 for two people), but that also included 3 or 4 Stoli Doli's! My husband and I also enjoyed the Lobster Bisque, Butternut Squash soup, Spinach salad, Wedge salad, Filet, Sea Bass, Flourless Espresso cake, and Coconut Cream pie (complimentary)!

    It is getting harder and harder to find a place with the perfect blend of food, service and moderate noise level. Capital Grille leads this category by a mile. The oysters tasted fresh off the boat, the crab cakes could gave been from a New England restaurant and the steak is as good as any steak restaurant in Texas!! We loved everything we are and we're still eating the giant piece of chocolate Hazelnut cake the next day. It was enough for 4-6 people!!!

    Between the atmosphere and the service it was excellent and then there was the food that just melted in you mouth. I ordered the filet minon that you could cut with your fork. The cream corn with bacon was amazing! The proportions were big enough to share with 2-3 people. Note: the food was on the high end but worth it in the end. I would recommend for a special occasion.

    The service is always great @ Capital Grill. My wife and I have been twice now, once in November (week of Thanksgiving) and most recently in later August. The place was pretty much empty in November, but that was probably because it was the Tuesday before Turkey Day. Regardless, we were treated like VIPs enjoying wine, steak & desert. This past weekend (late August visit), the place was PACKED. It was pretty loud, but not too bad since my wife and I were seated in a corner booth. It was a bit difficult to hear our hostess & server, but there were no mistakes on our order, so maybe it was just us, ha! Giant wine list, many food/game options, good times! Highly recommend!

    We always to go Cap Grille every year for rest week as well as special occasions throughout the year. The food is ALWAYS excellent- tip: get a porcini or Kona rub on your steak, delicious! The service is always excellent with our server who was attentive and patient with our large group (thanks Gregg!). The only thing that I didn't like was that bc of rest week it was very loud and bc of the large # of our group it was difficult to converse with the other end of the table. The past few years we have been able to be seated in a wine room where its closed off from the rest of the place but not something Cap Grille could help. We will cont to return to this rest every year!

    I enjoyed the food. My only complaint is that my boyfriend ordered the old fashioned and we did not even realize till we received the check that whoever made the drink automatically used an expensive scotch without even asking. Of course my boyfriend was not even able to taste the difference. The drink ended up costing more than a steak, ridiculous. I did not realize anyone should be using such an expensive liquor in a mixed drink. It's acceptable if you ask the customer what time of alcohol they want and they request the most expensive scotch in a mixed drink (silly) or maybe neat/on the rocks. Very unfortunate.

    My husband and I went for restaurant week but also ordered a few items off the menu also. The food was absolutely AMAZING. Food was quite delicious and service was very attentive. Since we went for restaurant week and splurged a little bit extra with drinks and an extra app (celebrating a birthday), the bill was still pricey but was expected. Special occasions if you can afford it!
