    If I had to pick just one restaurant it would be Capitol Grille. It is always special to go there lunch or dinner. First, the servers are always friendly but not intrusive. The wine list is an adventure. And I just had the Lobster Bisque two nights ago and I'm ready to go back for more! Even the valets who park my car are friendly and respectful. Also a perfect spot for a birthday or anniversary. Let them know in advance and they will make it even more special!

    We had an excellent first time at Dunwoody TCG. Compared to other locations, in other states even, it was on par and didn't disappoint. The staff are warm inviting not stuffy or sterile. Start to finish conversation engaging with staff was pleasant and memorable. The food was not to be overlooked because of its predictable quality. There are fairly classic dishes with a few exceptions to the new menu and as such most everything we had was great and as expected. Maybe next time we will need to be more adventurous to have an unexpected pleasant surprise. The problem, for me for instance, is the lobster mac n cheese is too good to try anything else. We look forward to coming back and would certainly request Micheal again.

    I took my aunt to lunch recently to celebrate her 88th birthday. In making the reservations, I had let them know about the BD and the restaurant went above and beyond to make it special. The hostess helped us by quietly clearing the way for my aunt's progress. We arrived at our table that had been decorated for this special event. Our server, Kiana, greeted us warmly with birthday wishes for my aunt! She proceeded to make our dining experience extra special with a champagne toast, seared tuna amuse-bouche, samples of soup in demitasse cups, and a delightful trio tasting of desserts. Our food was delicious and enjoyed by all! Thank you, Kiana, for helping us make the best choices. I highly recommend this restaurant for special events!!

    Went for our 23rd anniversary, and noted the occasion on our reservation. EVERY person at the restaurant greeted us by name and wished us a happy anniversary. There was a lovely note on the table, and little tiny hearts decorating the setting. Our server, Kate, outstanding. We were seated next to the glass-enclosed wine room, which adds a touch of ambience to an already beautiful room. Our cocktails were perfectly prepared. All the food was exceptional, even by high-end steakhouse standards. We started with the prosciutto-wrapped mozzarella with roasted heirloom tomatoes, then onto gorgonzola-topped filet with cabernet reduction and bone-in strip sirloin. Lobster mac & cheese (with huge chunks of lobster) was particularly good.

    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!

    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.

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.

We split a Caesar, the Delmonico, and the lobster mac & cheese. Also had an amazing bottle of wine. This place is seriously the best!
