Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "You always know you will be well-served with excellent food at Capital Grille--in any city. Our server, Victoria, took great care of us and made sure we enjoyed our meal. Bone in fillet was delicious. Excellent cocktails too."

  • "Everytime we go to the capital grille the service is top notch. They always make you feel special and go above and beyond to make your meal great. The bone-in filet was to die for!!"

  • "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 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!"

  • "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."

  • "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"."

  • "I took my husband here for his birthday. As requested, they gave us a booth which we appreciated it. Also they decordated the table (very nicely), which surprised by husband. The food was wonderful and everyone took great care of us during our dinning experience. I would highgly recommend Captial Grille for a special occasion for those who enjoy steak and seafood."

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "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."

  • "The food was excellent; however, the service was sub-par for a restaurant this pricey. Also, the menus were enormous and too hard to open or flip through while having a conversation. "

  • "I go here a lot. The scallops and the watermelon salad are excellent. This is a great place for a business lunch. Ask to sit in Kayla's section. She's the best. Not hyperbole, she absolutely is the best."

  • "Looking for a good steak downtown...this is it. The Capital Grille is consistently reliable. They no longer offer free valet parking which may keep us closer to Shanahan's (where parking is free and the valet staff is awesome) The free valet had us heading there more often because of the convenience. The bar is fun. The noise can be a bit loud...not a "romantic" environment in that respect. "

  • "I took my parents to the Capital Grille because it is my favorite restaurant in America for steaks and we were celebrating birthdays. I was a little concerned that the restaurant would be too noisy or that my Mom would be too fussy for the wait staff but I had no need to worry. Our server Sara was a true pro and she made even my Mom feel like she was right at home. The night was truly memorable (oh, and the steaks were out of this world, as always)!"

  • "Sarah Johnson has to be the best waitresses anywhere! My better half and I split meals and they enjoy helping us choose from the appetizer all the way through desert. The most elegant fun possible! We eat at Capital Grill about once a month and receive the best food and service compared to anywhere. Marcel is great at the bar, Rene is great in helping us choose wine. The food has always been excellent and cooked exactly as requested. See you there next month!"

  • "A spontaneous dinner at a new place after a full day. Our dining at The Capital Grille turned out to be just the right spot. Great ambiance, charming and delightful personnel. Stephanie was a wonderful server to help us choose just the right food and deliver it in a relaxed time so that we could savor the moment and talk. We were dressed much more casual than usual for a dinner out, welcomed by the hostesses and treated with great care. Valet was wonderful too."

  • "My husband and I went here for our 20th wedding anniversary. We had made reservations and when we arrived a little early they were fine to seat us or go to the bar. We decided to sit at the bar for a pre dinner drink. Good drinks and very nice service. When it was time to head to our table they had roses and a congrats card on the table. Everything from the food to the service was impeccable! It's a little pricey, but good for a special occasion. Definitely one of my favorites now. "

  • "It was our small group of 4 first time dining here and we loved everything about it. We arrived and was immediately seated to our booth with super cute birthday confetti on our table with a personalized birthday card for me. We loved our waitress Shelby she wished me a HBD right away and let me know my dessert was on them! It was late so we were all very hungry but our service for all of our food was very fast and we loved all the suggestions given to us. Lobster mac and cheese was by far our favorite! We will definitely be back, this is our new favorite steakhouse in Denver!~"

  • "My mom and aunt are picky eaters but our friendly waiter accommodated to their needs and gave us an outstanding dinner. Broke my wallet with main dishes in a price range of $50 and up (not including sides such as the awesome grilled asparagus and mashed potatoes) but well worth it for a special occasion. (Mother's day) The seared tenderloin with sautéed lobster on top really killed me. It was amazing. If you like your steak more on the red side ask for medium rare. The meat is a tad smaller than your regular steak so it cooks more thoroughly. If you're okay with spending over $280 for four then it's a great place to have a nice dinner. Amazing Mother's day. "

  • "This restaurant never disappoints in being a high level authentic steak house. Appropriate menu, professional service, and a smooth attitude. While the service is formal it's never pompous or contrived. And now that The Wall Street Journal has given steak a new blessing, theirs is as good as it gets."

Our server, Jamil is a professional and sommelier. We couldn't have asked for a better person to guide us through our experience. He not only recommended an excellent Rose but also gave us a wonderful memorable experience in our anniversary. We definitely not only recommend everyone to go there but also we will be back!!!"

The steaks were great as well as the whole dinner. Rene brought my daughter two red roses and spread little graduation caps on the table. After dinner Rene celebrated Corina's passing of her Nursing Boards by bringing out desserts - Corina just loved the whole evening and thanks to Capital Grille and Rene for a memorable evening."
