    My partner and I dined at Capital Grille, because we received a $50 gift card from American Express. We had the green salad and Chilean Sea Bass. Good size portion of Chilean Sea Bass, which usually is small. Perfectly prepared with roasted fennel heirloom tomato broth. Very tasty but yet healthy choice. Sat in a small room off to the side which was very quiet, especially in comparison to the rest of the restaurant which was full of people enjoying their meals and drinks. There is a variety of fine wine choices by the glass as well as bottle. Would return, even without a gift card.

    One of the most important things about dining out is consistency. There is nothing worse that discovering a restaurant, having a terrific experience and wanting to return only to find next time is a disaster. The consistency of food and excellence service at the Fort Lauderdale Capital Grill is without equal in South Florida. The floor staff are all team players, each coming to the bequest of any guest no matter what particular station or responsibility they may be assigned on that particular shift. DJ, the daytime bartender, operates food and beverage service from the bar better than a ship's captain. Kudos to the entire team !

    Capital Grille, in any city, is a very fine steakhouse. Of course, steak houses tend to be expensive. Dine Out week makes these classy, high end, meals affordable to those, such as myself, willing to spend $60 for a meal usually priced at $150, and well worth the price and experience.

    On the plus side, my steak, done Pittsburg, was absolutely fabulous. On the negative they should be embarrassed by their Caesar salad-soupy limp,awful. The mashed potatoes were packed with decadence, but way too loose. For the prices charged, they need to up their game. This is my fourth visit there, and my feelings have been the same each time.

    We went during Dine Around Ft Lauderdale and you cannot beat it for the price. Service is impeccable. food delicious. selection & amount great for dine around. I would go back and have already recommended it to others. Had the filet - first a little undercooked (loved that the waiter FLO waited while I cut into it to check). Steak was perfectly cooked upon return and manager presented it with a smile and a "thank you for allowing us to make your dinner......." HUbby had the chicken and loved it. above and beyond which is hard to find these days. thumbs up to Capital Grille.

    We ate here the other evening and it was as superb as I remembered. They also had a special going on for Dine Out Lauderdale which we felt was a very good value. They have also redone their wine list which is now presented on an iPad with tasting notes and the ability to search their wines by grape varietal, region, or type. The service was perfect and overall it was an excellent, memorable meal.

    Never felt better at a restaurant. Anniversary card waiting for us, which is normal for other restaurants. The table was decorated with hearts and were offered complimentary champagne. Very good!! The steaks were amazing and at the end we were given a "Happy Anniversary plate" with candle lights and two portions of a chocolate cake and cheese cake. They even took a picture for us and gave us a printed copy to keep as a memory.

    Once again I have been disappointed in the food quality at Capital Grille. Believe me I would be more than happy to pay top dollar for steaks of high quality. This is not the first time I have been sorely disappointed. The atmosphere is great, the bar is splendid, the service is attentive, but whomever supplies the steaks is not very good. It seems that they are buying their meat from Publix rather than a top quality butcher. The first steak the waiter placed in front of me I could barely get my fork thru. It was very tough and grisly. Seemed to be cooked correctly but very low quality meat. They insisted on replacing it, which they did. The second steak was slightly better but not much. Very disappointed after spending $400 +.

    One of the most important features about a restaurant is consistency. Once you have a good experience, you want that same good experience each and every time you visit. This feature is, perhaps, the single most important feature at Capital Grill in Fort Lauderdale. Staff is amazing. In particular, your barman D.J. who never disappoints and always makes guests feel as if they are the most important in the house.

    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.
