    Food and service was above average but was shocked to see female waitresses serving with long un-kept hair. This is not the standard that Capital Grille should allow, had one of these women served our table I would not have accepted the servings.

    This was a wonderful experience . The food was Prepared perfectly and each staff person we encountered were very Pleasant and helpful. Especially the male host who made us feel very special. Our steak was cooked absolutely perfect and the wine was very good . We are from Nashville TN and visit the Capitol Grille in Ft Lauderdale when we come down 2 or 3 times a year.

    FROM THE TIME I REQUESTED THE RESERVATIONS TO THE END OF THE MEAL, THIS WAS A CLASSY RESTAURANT. WHEN WE GOT THERE WE GAVE OUR NAME AND WERE IMMEDIATELY TAKEN TO OUR TABLE. SOME OF THE STAFF SAID HAPPY ANNIVERSARY AS WE PASSED. WE WERE IMMEDIATELY MET BY OUR WAITER(MICHAEL). THE TABLECLOTH HAD FOIL HEARTS ALL OVER. WE WERE GIVEN MENUS AND MICHAEL READ US THE SPECIALS. WHEN WE TOLD HIM WE DON'T EAT LIKE WE USED TO, HE RECOMMENDED HALF ORDERS OF VEGETABLES AND TO SHARE A STEAK. THE FOOD WAS TERRIFIC. THEY EVEN TOOK OUR PICTURE AND BROUGHT IT BACK IN A FRAME . DESSERT WAS BROUGHT ON A PLATE WITH HAPPY ANNIVERSARY PRINTED IN CHOCOLATE. WHAT A GREAT NIGHT

    Recently had lunch at Capital Grille in Ft Lauderdale, they have excellent aged steak as part of their plates during lunch. You receive a starter and choice of entree all for only $18.00, I had the starter ( chose soup, Clam Chowder was great!) and the aged Filet, plenty of meat for lunch portion. The staff very attentive, checked on steak, was too rare and the manager brought me new one and double checked cooked correctly. I recommend Capital Grille for great lunch at a nice price too! Plus you have wonderful shopping at the Galleria right there in Ft Lauderdale.

    Took my husband to Capital Grill for his birthday. We typically go to Ruth's Chris for special occasions but opted to try CG. When I made the reservation on line thru Open Table I noted that it was a birthday celebration in the Special Requests section. CG went above and beyond to make the occasion special; birthday sparkles, card, photo, excellent service and attention. Food and wine were excellent. It will be our new special occasion place to go.

    Visit Fort Lauderdale very often. Decided to try different steak and seafood place than our usual. The Capital Grille provides great quality food. Good atmosphere. Good service. Pricey but in line with similar restaurants. I would recommend the Capital Grille but it is not better than the other quality steak and seafood places in the area.

    What better way to celebrate my wife becoming an American citizen than steak and potatoes (ok, and French onion soup!) at our favorite The Capital Grille (Capital...get it?) Thanks to Eric, Susan and Rosa for making it so special...and for the extra corn salsa with the lobster and crab cakes. Yummmmm! Of all the high end steak restaurants, The Capital Grille truly is one of, if not our favorite. One of the things we really like is that it's truly hard to find any faults with any aspect of the restaurant. They think of every minor detail to the nth degree, even the servers having business cards. The final touch was the long stem rose presented to my wife at the end of the evening. It was their pleasure to make our evening so memorable!

    No, not the musical DJ, the bartender extraordinaire DJ. A frequent diner for lunch, I return with guests never to be disappointed by the level of hospitality and expert service of all the staff. But, there is one that stands out for consistent excellence and that is your Fort Lauderdale Capital Grill DJ. Always high energy, always on top of remembering details that make guests return because they are noticed and appreciated. DJ remembers your cocktail by name and your steak by its temperature. From the hostesses greeting you with a smile and opening the doors to the restaurant to the bar and floor staff, there is nothing to say but good things about this professional business lunch location. Kudos.

    Although this was a last minute reservation because our other plans fell through, it was not 2nd rate. We had the 16oz bone in filet, green beans & the scalloped potatoes. All were done to our liking & perfection. We can always count on the Ft. Lauderdale location to fulfill our expectations & beyond. The waitstaff is friendly, knowledgeable & professional. Food is always excellent & the timing of the delivery is spot on. We never feel rushed or left wandering where our food/ waiter is. Excellent for romantic evenings for 2 or a group of 14+. You can even call ahead of time & make special arrangements for dishes/service for your occasion.

    Always a pleasure eating here. Although, this time around my steak was cooked a little less done than I had asked. But overall, still a place I will continue to go to. Great for birthdays, and they do accommodate areas for sitting with small children. Lobster bisque was very good, along with the Wedge. Complimentary dessert given for birthday celebration which is nice.

    We were there for an anniversary and the table had small hearts distributed all over the table. Very impressive and my wife liked this. We were in a small room with only 4 tables, which only 2 others had diners. We enjoyed the porterhouse steak very much and the flavor was the best we have had compared to other steak type restaurants. There was a card from the restaurant congratulating us for our anniversary and they also provided a small dessert of chocolate cake and their cheesecake. Both were excellent. The final action was to present my wife with a rose, which I did notice other female guests also received. This place was amazing and we would return for other visits.

    Seems like all my reviews of The Capital Grille are outstanding. It's true. I don't know where we get better food, service, ambiance, etc. Decided at the last minute to come here and glad we did. Nice quiet dinner in the back room, our favorite, exceptional service from Lauren, and the wine pour was excellent..since it had one of our favorites..Arrowood. The generous pour was a real attraction and as a result, we will go again before the end of the month.

    Took the DW for an early b-day dinner. Booked via open table w/note of special occasion; CG later moved resv. time via phone no problem. Server and table prepared for bday event and recv'd comp dessert platter, nice surprise! Food as expected; rich, delicious and plentiful. Server was Lucien, quite sharp and friendly, but a bit of a thick accent....just ask him to speak slower and you will b fine! Generous pour a MUST for wine lovers....not all selections outstanding, but don't miss the bordeaux blend or the Cab...IMHO. enjoy!!

    We had a wonderful dinner...Steaks, sides and apps were all excellent. The "Generous Pour" was fun, but we weren't in love with any of the wines. They did a wonderful job of making my husband feel special on his birthday...Confetti on the table, picture of the two of us, after dinner dessert wine and a lovely dessert of cheesecake and flourless chocolate cake. We are so happy to have this restaurant nearby for a mid-week celebration! As always, the service was superb.

    I treated my fiance to Capital Grille for his 35th bday. I mentioned this in my reservation and when we arrived there was confetti on the table and a card for him from the restaurant. There are fewer and fewer places that give you that level of service. He was very impressed. We also received complimentary champagne and dessert. Our meals were beyond excellent, as per usual. We also took advantage of The Generous Pour and we both felt it was an incredible value and a nice way to try new wines. We loved our visit and we will definitely be back.
