Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Second trip here after several years-- sorry, but feel it does not live up.. Fish was in dry side. Creme Brûlée was skimpy. Service was outstanding.."

  • "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!!"

  • "The quality of food speaks true to the saying, if it ain't broke - don't fix it... You can count on always finding your classics here and done impeccably well. Keep to other places for experimenting. The Capital Grille is a great place to celebrate a special occasion or quench your thirst for a perfect steak and seafood."

  • "We are a friends group who always celebrate our birthdays at Capital Grille. The food, the service, the ambiance are always terrific. The complimentary glass of champagne always make us feel appreciated for our patronage. As a thank-you from the day, we are also given a complimentary photo to take home as a fond memory ! Way to go, Capital Grille !"

  • "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."

  • "We went there to celebrate a birthday. Our waiter Jonathan was wonderful. He was attentive and was very personable and made our experience memorable. We each ordered different items, chicken, porterhouse stake, Delmonico steak and a the snapper special. My boyfriend said his steak was the best he had ever tasted as was my Delmonico. The lobster bisque was beautifully seasoned and was loaded with chunks of lobster. The complimentary serving of flourless chocolate cake and cheesecake was a perfect ending to a perfect meal."

  • "I took my good friend out for a birthday lunch and Capital Grille really did so much to make it a special occasion. The table was decorated and we were given champagne and cake with a candle. Our server took a picture and placed it in a frame card and gave us each a copy. I could not have ordered anything nicer."

  • "Capital Grill does filet mignon exceptionally well. The Filet Oscar gives that little extra special something if you like crabmeat! Right now is their wine tasting to pair with your dinner, so made this dinner that much more enjoyable. Highly recommend Capital Grille."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "Food was wonderful and only issue was that twice they sent out an improperly cooked Filet for one of the four of us. To be fair she ordered it very well done and frankly I personally think that is ruining meat but she did order it that way so they should have given it to her that way. Starters and sides were really good."

  • "The overall experience was great. It was a Saturday night and very busy. Large groups of celebrations so it was a bit loud. I took my mom for a night out. It was a bit dark where we sat & she couldn't read the menu but, the server Andrea solved that problem with a box of reading glasses for my mom to choose from. Nice touch. The appetizers were great- Shrimp cocktail was delicious & the crab/lobster cakes were amazing. My seared halibut entree came out colder than I would've wanted (but tasted good) but my mom was not happy with the filet mignon at all. We waited too long for entrees (along with the big table next to us). Other than that- a great experience and the service is always top notch. Oh yea my mum loved the wine and creme brûlée."

  • "Once again, we had a wonderful experience here. Dinner with family in quiet room in back along with impeccable service with respect to all aspects of service. Steaks were prepared correctly first time out and all other dishes as well. That's what keeps us coming back.."

  • "We arrived early for our reservations, checked in with three different people at the hostess stand and were told they could not seat us until our requested time. We went to bar (as advised) and ordered a drink. We enjoyed our drink for almost an hour. i could clearly see table getting up and leaving and then reset. I went back to the same three people, who all seemed to not know who we were. Instead of apologizing for the over site and speaking to us they talked with each other and seated us in the worst spot in the restaurant. Free dessert is not what you want when you trying to have an enjoyable dinner. We dine here regularly, this event could change our choice."

  • "We went there for my b-day, table was set with confetti, b-day card on table, Prosecco, pic taken, printed and framed, 2 desserts w. candle presented on a platte w. Happy B-day written on it with melted chocolate and a rose to finish! What a treat. All that on the house! They food was delicious, service outstanding."

  • "Everything was just wonderful, except sitting next to us was a couple in jeans, t-Shirts and flip-flops. The daughter had torn jean shorts and skimpy tshirt top. Sort of took away from the atmosphere of our special occasion."

  • " The Capital Grill as always was great! The service was wonderful. Todd was our server and we found him to be personable, informative, and all his recommendations were spot on. The only thing that surprised us was the check. We've been going to the Capital Grill for years and always felt it was money well spent. This time for some reason although we had a great time it seemed like the prices had been raised. Again the food and service were exceptional but no one wants to get price gouged."

  • "Here for 5th anniversary. Our server was Flo. We couldn't hear him, leaned in & still couldn't. When we could, we barely understood him since his accent was so heavy. Ordered "chef suggestion", seared tenderloin & butter poached lobster tails. Ordered it medium. Flo asked me to cut to check how it was cooked. Way too rare for me. Sent it back as my wife ate her well done filet. 10 min later my food arrives, 1/2 the tenderloin was med well, 1/2 med rare. Now to the lobster, looked like 3 pieces of shrimp curled on the side of the dish, & WAY too fishy, couldnt eat it. Finally Flo came back as we were done & asked about our meals, told him lobster was fishy. Manager took our $30 bottle of wine off instead of refunding the $60+ for the meal"

  • "Excellence needs to be rewarded. In the hospitality business, top reviews and word of mouth are the best way to let one know about excellence. The Capital Grill topped the chart this week as we celebrated my daughter's birthday. The cuisine was as good as it gets from French Onion Soup to a Tomahawk steak for two and a filet for the birthday girl.The memories come from the service and caring attitude of wait staff member Steve Emanuelli who just didn't stop trying to make this an extraordinary evening. We were greeted by a birthday card on a table of colorful confetti. Champagne for all, a taste of their signature pineapple vodka, and a fabulous and delicious dessert tray enjoyed by all. Thank you Capital Grill, and see you again soon"

  • "This Fort Lauderdale mainstay has proven itself to be remarkably consistent in all areas. Food and service being what keeps us coming back whether it be for cocktails, lunch or dinner. The dinning room is a bit noisy and would not be a recommendation for private or business conversation. The lounge is the place for intimacy. Service is always exemplary. Product and presentation very stable in all areas. If there is something not to your liking, staff and kitchen immediately correct the mishap. No problems here whatsoever ! Congratulations on a job well done."

The atmosphere can't be beat for a sophisticated restaurant. The best part for us is the service and Shelly, our waitress was professional and friendly and always seemed to checking in on us."
