  • Get rid of Ipad wine list

    I love technology, but a wine list does not belong on an ipad. It is cumbersome, I like flipping through the pages and it actually takes much longer with the ipad to find what you want or see other options. I asked for a normal wine list and the server said they no longer have one. Well this will be my last visit to a Capital Grille. The steak was over cooked, the server was below average, they sliced our steak without even asking. I wanted to send it back but we were in a hurry and did not want to have to wait any longer. With this experience, Capital Grille is now my last choice for a steak in Atlanta. Many better options.

    Another wonderful steak (and lobster) meal. The service was outstanding. There were a number of "corporate tables" with very large parties but we still had very personalized service. The waiter even suggested we get half orders of 2 vegetables, which was a perfect choice. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and we even had leftovers to enjoy again.

    The food and service were outstanding. My husband and I shared the Prosciutto Wrapped Mozzarella with Vine Ripe Tomatoes appetizer and shared the Filet Oscar. The wine was good. The side items are substantial, so one side item is enough for 4 people to share. Most of their menu items are large enough to share. We will definitely go back!

    We had a great birthday celebration....first time at the closer-to-us Perimeter location because we had always gone to the HG in Buckhead. The General Manager was the perfect host and server Kieana was knowledgeable and attentive. Steaks and halibut prepared to perfection. The appetizers and wines started off our evening with a smile.

    The dining experience was Top Notch!! We had a group of 8 celebrating a friend's birthday. The staff is seriously the best I have ever experienced. They truly made our evening special! We had Chilean Sea Bass with Heirloom Tomatoes and Saffron Tomato Broth, Sliced Filet Mignon with Cipollini Onions and Wild Mushrooms and more along with a variety of sides to share including the Lobster Mac 'N' Cheese. Every bite was delicious! Thank you Capital Grille for a memorable evening for all of us!

    Took my wife on our anniversary. Food is always outstanding, but Jeff Hungerford, Clayton Hendron, and staff went out of the way to ensure this was a special occasion. Normally a location I go for business meals, my wife was more concerned with excellent meal over quiet romantic spot and they came through as usual. We like the energy, the personalized service, and the terrific meal was a given. Will be back soon.

    Joe was our waiter at Capital Grill and Kania assisted. Both were awesome! The entire staff was very attentive and several waiters, the host and others took the time to come by our table and wish us a Happy Anniversary! The complimentary dessert and champagne at the end was the "Icing on the cake!" Can't wait to go back and would recommend to anyone with a special occasion! Thanks to all

    We recently celebrated our son's birthday, Party of 6. We arrived to find the table, perfectly "decorated" with birthday wishes and that was just the beginning. Our dinner was perfectly paced, the service was outstanding, our dinners were perfectly prepared and we could not have chosen a better restaurant. We heeded the recommendations of our server..... the fried lobster tail appetizer was the best ever, the entrees, from lamb to filet, to filet oscar were all beautifully presented and exquisitely prepared. Now for the best..... the "birthday" dessert plates were above and beyond our expectations. Yes, we will be back for many birthdays to come!

    The food was good, as it always is. But why, every time I visit this restaurant do 4 - 5 employees have to check on my dining experience throughout the meal? I get that they want to make sure the diner is satisfied, but the constant checking by various employees and managers is intrusive, and almost rude.

    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.

    I'm seeing a recent but steady slip in what I've long considered one of my favorite happy hour/business lunch-dinner spots in the Perimeter. I've had issues with service and slowness at each of my last three visits - including a 20 minute wait to replace a guest's incorrect entrée (my own went cold because I wasn't going to eat without them), an entire lunch without an offered beverage refill for my table, and a 15 minute wait at the bar just to place an afternoon drink order. I'm not a complainer by nature, but I hope my fellow diners can use this to keep things moving while there... and that the restaurant management takes it to heart for possible improvement. Many thanks!
