    I just recently had lunch at the Capital Grille. On entering, some of my guests noted wine lockers for celebrities such as Shaq O'Neil. My group was seated immediatley. The waiter Charles was gracious and very knowledeable about the menu. The lobster bisque was to die for. The crab and lobster burger took me to another zone. On completion of the meal, I was quite surprised that the waiter wanted to shake my hand and thank me for dining with The Capital Griile.

    Captial Grille at Pointe Orlando has some of the most exceptional service from their entire staff! They all go above and beyond to ensure you have everything you desire! Dave F. is the best and you should request him if you are looking for a personable and memorable dining experience. Nick the GM always stops at your table to show his appreciation for you coming in. The food is always above par and very consistent. This has become our favorite restaurant in Orlando.

    Very impressed by the level of service by staff and management. I reserved through Open Table and so my name was discoverable. Upon arrival at the restaurant and during service by the main wait staff member, I was addressed by name. A little thing, but shows attention to the details that make a dining experience memorable. The main wait staff member also knew the wine list cold.

The chef is animated and very talented, Nick the manager and David the asst mgr are very hands on and in tune with every customer. Not a better place in Orlando to go.

    We had a group of twelve and most of them were clients. We started with cocktails at the bar and were not rushed immediately to our seats. When we were seated, it appeared that no one was cramped. Anthony and Jen promptly introduced themselves to me and made some introductory recommendations for a group of our size. This is professional in my mind. The recommendations were received by the group. Everyone had a great meal and commented on everything from the food to the presentation to the service. My boss and I received much praise for the choice in restaurant and gave us a leg up with our customers.

    As per usual my steak was undercooked. Sent it back to be cooked more, came out still undercooked . By that time was offered another steak to be cooked, but by the time it would have come to the table my family would have been done with their meals. This is what you do...steak. Get it cooked to the right temperature the first time.

    Dined on 6/24/2014
    My colleagues and I decided to dine at Capital Grille based on an exceptional experience we had at another location. Unfortunately, this dinner is memorable for a different reason. The service was sub-par. Our waiter kept disappearing. We made multiple requests for everything from ice water to small plates to share the sides. Entrees were delivered before our salads were finished. Most of the entrees were cooked appropriately, however one steak was very chewy. A dinner at the Capital Grille can average $100 pp with a glass of wine an no dessert. For that money, I recommend you try one of the other fine restaurants in Orlando.

    Delicious succulent Porterhouse and Filets prepared exactly to our liking. Don't miss the sauteed mushrooms (side) but pass on the truffle fries (bland). Our service was excellent with most professional yet warm genuine service. From salad to surprise birthday dessert- the night was most enjoyable. Add a decent wine or cocktails and a couple of side dishes- Capital Grille is very high-end but.. the quality is also. Save it for a special day!

    I have been to Capital Grill many times before. Most recent visit in Mid June was very disappointing with respect to seemingly declining overall food quality. I ordered their special of day, Bone in Filet for $60. Great meat indeed but if had no flavor - tasted like it came straight from a butcher bypassing the chef. Since I was on a date, I didn't return it or ask for money back. I just suffered

    This is essentially a steak house, although there are other options. The cuts are excellent, but they are not seasoned well. Appetizers, side dishes, and alcoholic beverages are grossly overpriced. Within a couple of miles of this Capital Grille, there are better steaks--Ruth's Chris, Morton's, Fleming's, and the excellent local Vito's Chop House. If I leave a restaurant after spending $200 plus tip for a party of two, I should feel that I have had a memorable meal. This was not one. There is little of value here. As noted, better options abound in this part of town. We will not likely return.

    The evening started out being a disaster. Everything that could have gone wrong did, including not getting our wine, wrong steaks delivered, out of many things. However, the manager, Dan, did his best to turn it all around. Our party of 7 wound up having a very nice dinner. The steaks were superb.

    The atmosphere and setting were very nice, but in comparison to some of the other restaurants in town, it was not as impressive. The service was ok, not great. The steaks were good, though one in our party did state that his steak was not cooked o his preference. For an a la carte menu, the fact that the waitress forgot to bring our specially ordered salads was a bit surprising.

    Can someone tell me why they put snarky rude 20 somethings at the reception desk of a high end restaurant? We arrived with a reservation, a little early and three people (2 girls and 1 guy) were so cold and brusque. When we asked if there was a possibility of eating in the bar to shorten our wait, they told us "you can go look" - we told them to forget it. Your front desk is your first impression. GET A NEW ONE!
