    Capital is always a good place to go for good food & good wine. This particular time, my finacee's steak was very cold to the touch as in almost refrigerator cold when it was served but they rectified the situation promptly. Mistakes happen! But Capital is a great place to go so you should try it!

    My husband and I went to The Capital Grille for our 10 yr anniversary. The staff was very friendly and informative. They even had roses on our table with a little card saying Happy Anniversary. The food was fantastic and we ate way too much food :) I would recomend this place to anyone wanting a special night out.

    We both had the special and it couldn't have been better. The service was superb. When we were being seated, I mentioned we wanted to linger and a booth. She took us to a perfect place to not be disturbed and really enjoy our conversation. Then we moved to the bar for a last glass of wine and had the best ambiance. The Capital Grille is a great place and you can't go wrong dining there.

    After the manager sat us down at a table with rose petals after hearing we were there to celebrate our anniversary, I knew it was going to be a great night. The generous pour wine option was great. Of course the food was top of the line.

    Dined on 8/1/2014
    We love The Capital Grille but it was my husband's birthday and, because he is hard of hearing, I requested a quiet booth which we got in the back corner of the room and it was perfect for about fifteen minutes until a table of eight VERY LOUD people were seated next to us and from that point on he couldn't hear at all and I was having trouble myself. The waiter and manager were very gracious and even offered a complimentary desert but the noise level made it too uncomfortable to enjoy it so we just had to get out of the noise.

    Everytime when I was there it was great, the food is always great. And the service too. Except this time. For reason after we get our meal the waitress stop serviceing us with drink? I guess she think we dont need more ice tea, water and coffee. We had to ask for it. I keep seen her walk by but for some reason our Everthing else was great.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 7/29/2014
    We told them it was our anniversary celebration when we made the reservation. They greeted us with "Happy Anniversary" already at the front desk. The service was special, with two roses at the table, glass of complimentary champagne to start and little hearts confetti on the table. The manager also checked on us at the table. And it was not just our table because of the anniversary, but we saw him checking in on other tables as well. Whole staff was wonderful. A great place for that special occasion. Expensive but worth it.

    Cap Grille has been one of my favorites for a while, but was disappointed when I found my Halibut to have a bone in it. As I bit down, I immediately told our waitress. With that, a manager immediately came to redeem the issue. I was very impressed with that service, until he implied he was going to take the fish off check, include free dessert and give me another glass of wine on the house. Later to find out, they charged me for only half the fish, made me pay for the dessert and never came to give me another glass of wine. Disappointed is the only word I can choose for my experience at Capital Grille.

    We were seated at a wonderful, private booth near their kitchen, which was fun to watch. The table was nicely decorated in celebration of our anniversary. Such a special touch. I ordered the citrus salmon and spinach salad. Salad was terrific, as was the bread selection brought to the table ahead of time. The salmon was moist and good; however, when I was told the salmon is prepared med well, that is not what I got. It was pretty undercooked all the way through. Not the description our server told us. Nice crust though. We did the wine paring, which was a good price for all the wine we sampled. My husband had the filet with lobster tail which was great. Dessert was a good creme brulee cheesecake. Exceptional service!

    We had to wait about 15 minutes past our reservation, during this time we enjoyed a drink in the bar. Once we were seated it took quite some time for our server to make contact with us, but in her place two other people stopped by our table. When we did meet our server she was very pleasant and apologetic, that instantly helped diffuse any bad feelings. Dinner was amazing cocktails were great (Stoli doli) and coconut cream pie was to die for. In the end Amanda comped one cocktail and desert and gave us advise for food and drinks the next day! We will definitely go back they have such great customer service!

    The food was exquisite, and our server (Lane) and his cadre of assistants saw to our every need. The Table was splashed with various sized foil hearts and adorned with a single long-stemmed rose to set off the right atmosphere. Recommended wine match for our "evening special" beef and Seared Tuna selections was a 2012 Argentinian Alto Las ? Valle de Uco - Mendoza [Noteworthy for sure]. We would typically skip the dessert after dining with ample portions such as these (we started with the Beef Tartar' [truly setting a new benchmark for us in excellence] and 1/2 dozen East Coast Oysters), but were "comped" another Capital Grille favorite, the Coconut Creme Pie. Delicious!

    We come here for special occasions. Overall the service is good and food is done perfectly each time. This trip had a bit of an awkward moment when, after we valeted our car out front, we went inside and the hostess looked at us with confused faces almost as if to wonder why we were there (we were wearing appropriate clothing and were clean - same as always). So after a quick couple seconds of this, I said we had two for dinner under our reservation. Then the person seating tables came up and had a similar confused way about her as if to wonder what to do next - seat us or let us just stand there? After that, dinner was great and I love that anybody in the restaurant has the authority to address a request from guests. We will return.

    We went there to celebrate Father's Day. The menu selection was very good. The Calamari was excellent. They had a very nice selection of wines too. They ran out of the special Salmon quite early in the evening which I thought was poor planning. But we found something on the menu that was satisfying.

    First off, I suggest using Open Table to book the reservations, the Capital Grille follows the directions to a tee. It was our 24th anniversary and when we got to our table, it was all decorated with a nice card from the crew. We had Jamil Tealer for our waiter, he was amazing. This guy knows his wines and food and best of all LOVES his job. I love the quote he said to us, "I haven't had to work a day of my life".

    The Capital Grille's food is excellent, yet priced way too high. For the cost, one would expect a lovely presentation of the entree with some culinary additions to enhance the flavors. The service was excellent yet generally unfriendly. A smile on our server would have been welcome now and then. After receiving a binder full of wines by the bottle and the menu with more bottles of wine listed, we had to ask for a list of wines by the glass, which was quite short. Neither of us saw one that we liked. We expected to be treated better.

    We come here often and really enjoy the Capital Grille experience. This las time wasn't as great as we had a server, which we had in the past, who isn't very good. He was slow to take and deliver our drink order, seemed to ignore some of our party, while seemed to push more drinks on others. The food and everything else was great but hopefully, we don't ever have this server again.
