  • "The Bone-in Kona Crusted Sirloin, medium rare, is quite possible the best steak I have ever eaten. Great service, great sommelier and great ambience. A classic steakhouse in the best way possible."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • " 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."

  • "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."

  • "Capital Grill will be always one of my favorites. Food is great and the service is the best. Try the Delmonico Steak."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "Ended up coming last minute and was not disappointed at all. Aundrea is a great waitress and she took great care of our party of 8. We stayed pass midnight and was not rushed at all. The service here is great."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "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."

  • "We could not wait to go back. The chicken confit was excellent especially the beans and vegetables that accompanied it. The New York strip was tender and very tender. 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."

  • "Always enjoy the Capital Grille. The FTL location provides a warm inviting ambiance. Always enjoy going, and its proximity to the beach providing a scenic and relaxing journey homeward with a full and satisfied evening enjoyed."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "Most unenjoyable experience ever here or ever. Very judgmental staff. We didn't like the table offered which was next to the water station. We asked for a different table in the empty restaurant and they said that would be problem. Finally they accommodated but they retorted with terrible service. Waiter messed up order and claimed he misunderstood specials but we would have wait very long for correct order. I really think there are much better places to experience a special evening. "

  • "Second time here to celebrate my anniversary. Both times I had great service and food. Price isn't bad neither for this type of restaurant. "

  • "I took my boyfriend out for his 30th birthday at the capital grille. We walked in and were greeted and seated immediately. We were able to get a booth for seating. It was very romantic. Sean, our waitress, was very attentive and accomodating. We both ordered steak (filet mignon and aged steak). We also ordered lobster mac & cheese, drinks, and desert. It was a wonderful meal...very delicious. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for special occasions and romantic nights out."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "We went there for our 5 year anniversary and thru open table was able to let them know ahead of time, they treated us to a champagne toast, decorated the table and treated us like royalty! The food was prepared to perfection. I cannot wait to go back and I have been telling all our friends how perfect the night was thanks to Capital Grille."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Our waitress was Aundrea. I have absolutely no complaints! She was very attentive but did not overdo her job. She held great conversation and is extremely nice."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "I must say I am a bit put off by a $44 Filet with nothing else on the plate. $12 gets you a cone of French Fries (granted they sprinkled some Parmagian Cheese and a little truffle oil on them - but really!). The thrill is gone for me. "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Another perfect experience. Food and service were perfection. Service was impeccable thanks to Bill, our server. All 4 of us had steak prepared exactly to order and can't remember any that was better anywhere. The Calamari starter was really great. Prepared quite differently-pan fried with hot cherry peppers. Bill also decanted and poured our wine perfectly. This experience couldn't be better. "

  • "One of the best steaks I have eaten (and there have been a bunch!). The salad and appetizer were also excellent. The service and ambiance were impeccable. Look forward to returning."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "The overall experience of the restaurant was just okay to me.. The complaints I have is the fact that our waiter did not explain the mother's day menu to us, I did not like how the waiter stood around waiting for my mother to finish her appertizer, and last but not least I couldn't understand why I saw other mother;s receiving a pink rose and I and my mother did not receive one"????"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The setting was great. It was a surprise dinner for my mom. We arrived on time for our 8:30 reservation and our waiter, Michael, was a smart mouth the entire time. They ran out of chicken, so I couldn't order a entree since I don't eat beef, lamb or seafood. But, they were apologetic about it. I wasn't upset about it given we were the last table. But, I was really upset about Michael's service. Hopefully, you don't get Michael."

  • "Saturday night dinner @ Capital Grille was outstanding. Food was perfectly prepared and the service was timely. The wait staff was courteous and amusing. The noise level was energetic yet not too noisy for conversation. Can't say enough about the meal and the evening and would highly recommend to all who care to listen. A++++++"

  • "We have been going to this restaurant for years. The food is always good and the service attentive. When we have guests visiting from foreign countries or friends from out of town, we always take them to eat capital grill's steak."

  • "Always good and consistent. While most people go there for steak, I prefer the seafood, in particular the Lobsters are to die for. Best baked stuffed outside of Boston. "

  • "have eaten at capital grill many times. this last time was exceptional. our server helped make the evening ,which was not a special occasion, most enjoyable. the steaks lamb chops and the steak special along with the fish where done as requested. just an enjoyable night . my only complaint was the host was going to place us in a back corner table without asking if we wanted main dining room or a quiet place out of the way. the annoyed me very much as I had made reservation several days ahead. he should have asked!"

  • "My wife and I had another wonderful meal at our "go to " place for special occasions. We were celebrating our kids graduations and couldnt have picked a better place. From the moment we arrived till the time we left the staff made us feel that we were the only ones there. the steaks and chops were excellent and the lobster was oustanding. If there were any negative, I would say the wild mushroom side was salty. All in all it was a great evening and can't wait to go back. "
