    Excellent service, it was a surprise for the hubby and they greated us, brought us to table to meet friends and presented him with a Birthday Card. They then came over and decorated table with glitter. Food was great, service was amazing and the wine list, expensive but great selection.

    We celebrate all significant occasions here, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. The food is consistently gourmet quality, the service is impeccable and all the staff are so personable yet professional and caring. Truly a gem - looking forward to our next visit. Pricey, but well worth it - you will not be displeased.

    My wife and I try to eat here once per month. The steaks are usually outstanding as well as the service. We've been there so often that I notice they've created a dossier on us-they know the cuts of meat we like to eat and how we like it cooked. This time the porterhouse was a little tough, although my wife said her filet was as good as usual. I guess even the "Capital" can't be perfect ALL the time.

    I've eaten here many times because I know what to expect in terms of level of service and quality of the steaks. I would have to say that the quality of the meat here as well as service , rank well above other high end steak chains like Morton and Ruths Chris.

    Been to Capital Grille several times. Very, very good service; accomodating kitchen for those with food allergies or intolerances; great for a special occassion (nice table decorations, card, picture taken!). Food is very good, especially steaks which makes sense! For non red-meat eaters, it's just a little more challenging, but can always find something delicious on the menu. Overall, very positive experience every time I've been to the restaurant!

    We were actually late for our reservation because we were from out of town and got lost, but they still sat us promptly. It was very high class with a lot of professional people in attendance. The food was excellent! I would say the only drawback is lack of parking, but there is a complimentary valet service.

    I mentioned in our reservation that it was our 20th anniversary. Well, there was a card and heart confetti on the table! WHat a nice touch and the hostess and waiter both wished us a happy anniversary! So nice and the service was superb! The food was delish and while we waited for our dessert, they came over with a plate that said happy 20th anniversary in chocolate, with cake and berries AND two glasses of champagne with a raspberry in each! So impressed! Would definitely return!

    Service- reservation ease and staff were great. Dining experience- Saturday evening. 2 people, 2 salads, 1-tendeloin with lobster tail (surf and turf) small portion poorly presented and lacked taste. 1-2lb Lobster out of the shell with drawn butter, OK, but not great. 2 glases of wine. Expense- over $100 per head with tip. Conclusion- food fair to OK but not worth the expense. Impression- noisy up scale chain resturant connected to a shoipping mall.

    My second visit to Capital Grille confirmed my first impression. Service is professional, attentive without being intrusive. They pay attention to the little things, such as switching out white napkins for dark ones so as not to leave lint on dark clothing. Both the meat and seafood are delicious. Not an inexpensive meal, but you get what you pay for.

    Took my parents here for their 31st wedding anniversary and called ahead to mention our reason for dining. Our experience was absolutely fantastic, everyone at Capital Grille went above and beyond to create a memorable dining experience for us. Our waiter Jeremy was very attentive and the food was of the best quality. I could not have asked for a better dinner experience for my parents, will definitely be going back to celebrate other occasions at Capital Grille-Garden City!

    After much consideration of where to go, Capital Grille was absolutely the best decision I could have made to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday. By sharing the special occasion prior to coming with the restaurant, I had no idea how the staff would go above and beyond with such awesome acknowledgement. From the subtle, yet simple table decoration to each of the staff wishing her a happy birthday ending the evening with a champagne toast and keepsake photo was such a nice touch. KUDOS to you Capital Grille and thanks for an amazing dining experience, one in which my daughter proclaimed was her "best birthday ever!"

    As always, a great evening! Although it was a very crowded Saturday night (and a holiday weekend), we were greeted warmly and seated promptly in a comfortable booth. Understated/elegant decor and jazz soundtrack added to the ambiance. "Team" service was seamless, as a host of people proceeded to devote themselves to making sure we had everything we could possibly want. The lobster bisque special was outstanding--velvety, with what seemed like a whole lobster swimming in it. Filets were cooked to perfection, sides nicely presented and ample. Recommend highly, and will return soon!
