    Friendly services, the food was outstanding. We ordered smoked salmon for an appetizer, it was delicious, just wished that it came with some type of bread or crostini. The steak was outstanding and the lobster mac-n-cheese was to die for. The breast of chicken confit was nothing special, there was lack of seasoning. Overall, we enjoyed our dining experience. A bit on the pricey side, but a great place to celebrate a special occasion.

    This place is always on point. We had a short wait at the bar, and the bartender let us try a sample of the Stolioli - delicious! We were seated quickly, and had amazing service from 2 servers. We split a Caesar, the Delmonico, and the lobster mac & cheese. Also had an amazing bottle of wine. This place is seriously the best!

    The first thing I noticed when we walked in was a funky smell. I also noticed it when we left. The way the sea bass was prepared made it the worst sea bass I have ever had but the quality of the meat was good. I like the location in Buckhead so much better. The food is always more expensive than the experience. However, I love the appetizers and go back time and time again for the view and appetizers in the Buckhead location.

    What a great Friday evening we spent at Capital Grille. We wanted a quiet romantic dinner and that is what we got. The food was fabulous. I had filet Oscar and it was covered in crab! Not just two or three pieces. Also the lobster mac and cheese was to die for... worth every calorie. Dessert.... coconut ream was exceptional as well as cappuccino. The service was great too - no rush and timed well. Kudos to Capital Grille!

    I treated 2 friends to a birthday celebration, and all of us agreed we could not have found a better meal or better service in Atlanta! The table was decorated for the occasion, and the complimentary champagne was delicious and such a nice beginning to the delicious meal. We ordered filets, and each was perfectly cooked. The lobster mac and cheese was loaded with lobster, and I wouldn't mind having that every day. Our server, Timothy Bramble, was extra attentive and made the celebration fun. You must try this restaurant - you'll make it a regular.

    We were celebrating a wedding anniversary at this location recently. Very disappointed by the servers (except for a few) that were very unprofessional. One of the managers (who looked more like a MacDonalds worker) kept coming to our table and asking if everything was ok. That's fine one time but she came over 3 different times! Food was pretty good but pricey. Cost us almost $70 for one steak, a side salad and a cup of soup (we split the large steak). They did treat us to a complimentary desert which was very good but REALLY tiny. One bite each. There is a lot of improvement that needs to be done before we will return.

    We were there for our 34th anniversary and were totally surprised and thoroughly delighted to see that they had decorated our table, made several great meal and wine suggestions, prepared our meal exactly the way we requested it, were incredibly attentive (yet discreet)...and on and on. We could not have imagined a better day. Would definitely recommend this place to others. Make sure you have the lobster mac n' cheese! And ask for Alex - he was superb!

They put our 5 person group in a small room off the main dining area and it was absoutely exactly what we needed! Thank you

    This location has been around for maybe 6 months. They've yet to bring it capital grill standards, but are improving. You'll find the other locations to be better with food then this one. Portions with sides remain small to competitors. Quality of steak is better then most, but not up to the top steak houses. It's a good meal, just don't expect great. I've dined here 5 times since they've opened and see it get a bit better with every visit.

    Disappointing visit. The food was mediocre and overpriced and the service, although friendly, was slow especially since there were few diners there during our visit. Should have known it wasn't very good when we got a reservation for 4 at a primetime on Saturday and when we arrive there were only a couple of cars in the parking lot. Maybe the other locations fare better but this one is definitely off our list.

    This is one of our favorite restaurants, so we knew it would be good. But they set yet another high standard. We had never ordered the Delmonico Ribeye. I can honestly say it was one of the single best steaks of my life. Couple that with the Generous Poir wine event, and a most spectacular evening was had by all. Oh yes, and our waitress, Janeen, was awesome. Very knowledgeable wih the wine pairings.

    I have been to Capital Grilles in several other states and hoped this one would be just as good if not better and it was. From the warm welcome as I stepped in to the restaurant to the impeccable service we received from Alex, our waiter, all staff we came into contact with were professional, yet very friendly. That evening, I wanted to go somewhere where two women dining without their husbands would feel comfortable and have an excellent meal and we found just that. All in all we had a superb evening thanks to the Capital Grille and its lush, clubby atmosphere along with the first-rate, excellent staff. Thank you for a tremendous evening and, Alex, all your suggestions on the wine and meal menus were spot on! We'll be back.

    For about 8 weeks Capital Grille has a wine selection of about 7 wines for $25 that you can chose any and all. It is a great asset to the meal to be able to try new wines and have more of the ones you like the best. They have a great menu, great chefs, and exceptional service. It is a perfect restaurant to celebrate a special occasion, they know how to do it right.

    In addition to the best food in Atlanta, this restaurant has thought every detail before you even know you might want it (like the black linen napkins when you're wearing black pants). They're extremely attentive and the service is professional, warm and friendly. My favorite dishes here are the calamari appetizer, caprese salad, blackened steak, lobster mac & cheese and cheesecake. Wow!!!
