Diner Reviews
  • "Great food, drinks, service, & atmosphere. Will keep this place in mind for special occassions in the future."

  • "I was left feeling completely underwhelmed by my dinner at Capital Grille. It had all the ingredients for a great night, but a lot of little things plus a bad waiter added up to a disappointing meal. There were several empty unbused tables which detracted from the decor, I was never offered a black napkin despite CG having them and wearing black pants, we had to ask for a cocktail menu. The biggest disappointment was our waiter. He never introduced himself; at first hardly spoke and just made gestures. It took over 20 minutes to get bread at the table. He always took the men's orders first and served them first also. He was clumsy with serving. Then halfway through the meal decided to start talking non-stop and linger at the table."

  • "Last Saturday my wife and I had an incredible experience before the Colts preseason game. Not only was it Devour Downtown with a specially priced 3 course menu but it was also their Generous Pour event. Our server couldn't have been better and the Generous Pour for only $25 per person was definitely worth the price. Cheers!"

  • "We went for a "date night" dinner. It was wonderful. Our waiter was experienced and knew a lot about wine. He was very helpful. Our food was simply amazing. I could cut my steak with a fork, it was that tender. The flavor was even better. We will return."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "The food is glorious and the wait staff are well trained, knowledgeable and fun to talk with over the course of a meal. We took advantage of the Devour Indy program and added extras - a poached lobster tail to the main entree and an extra fresh fruit dessert. Wines were excellent and our waiter very nice. Known for steaks with a KONA rub (yum!) and for having Maine lobster on the menu, this is one of our favorite places to celebrate life, love and being foodies."

  • "We had a fantastic dinner and outstanding service. The beef fillet was seasoned and cooked perfectly. The mashed potatoes were among the best I've had, a very close second to Bobby Flay's potatoes at Mesa Grill. This is a very well run restaurant and it shows."

  • "We have eaten at the Capital Grille on multiple occasions but this dinner was by far the best. The food was perfectly prepared and presented. The experience was made perfect by our waiter - Harry. We will always ask for him from now on."

  • "Outstanding food. Service was slow at best. 2 plus hours for dinner was a little long."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "All the dishes were of highest quality. Waiters were attentive but not pushy; allowed us to enjoy an excellent meal and a good long visit with a friend. Price is out of the "let's go here every week" range (for me anyway), but quality, flavor, preparation, and presentation of the food matched the price. (As a side item, I highly recommend the lobster/mac & cheese!)"

  • "Capital Grille was terrific! Delicious food, outstanding service & large wine menu. My steak was done perfectly! We chose au gratin potatoes & creamed spinach as our sides. All three of us enjoyed our Caesar salads. This is a great place for a wonderful dinner! We will return. :-)"

  • "Beautiful restaurant, quality of food not comparable to price. Amuse-Bouche was very fishy tasting. Steaks were good, although not wonderful. Side dishes not great but good. This restaurant is more suited for conventioneers or expense account people. Rachel our server was very professional and knowledgable about the wines and dishes we ordered."

  • "Exceptional food and service. Great place to go for a special occasion....went for my wife's birthday and the staff made her and really both of us feel that they really appreciated us being there. The server was quite knowledgeable of everything on the menu and wine list...as you'd expect in a place of this caliber. We'll be back."

  • "My best friend was in town and had previously enjoyed The Capital Grille while staying at The Conrad Hotel. Made reservation and were seated early (good deal when hungry). The Capital Grille has special "small plates lunch" menu for $18.00. This menu ends at 5:00 pm. Though we were there at 5:30, figured would not hurt to ask if "small plates menu." The server initially was reluctant, but asked and offered this option was offered. The food (dry sirloin and pan-seared scallops) were good as always. Only complaint would be inattentive service for water, bread and final bill presentation. Will return and hope for better service!"

  • "Had the 14 oz. bone in filet - it was fixed exactly like I ordered and could be cut with a butter knife - it melted in my mouth. Also, had breakfast 2 mornings and the menu was to die for - great service - great food."

  • "I was awarded Outstanding Contractor of the Month by my employer and they said they were going to take me to lunch and wanted to know where I wanted to go. I told her that I wanted to go to the Capital Grille. I ordered the sirloin and it was great. She ordered the scallops and thought they were fantastic also."

  • "We really enjoyed dining at the Capital Grille but it is best for an expense account or special occassion. Expensive and most everything was excellent except the creamed corn which we thought was pretty bland and the clam chowder, where we have had better. The steaks were fantastic and our server was great."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Capital Grille was amazing. We never asked beforehand for any special amenities yet when they found out about our 10th anniversary, they want out of their way for us. Service was great. They took a picture of us with the restaurant camera and printed it plus brought a plate of multiple desserts (both for free) in order to celebrate. Great time. Will definitely be back."

  • "I had a great experience with my father and grandmother for dinner. The food was excellent, my steak was cooked perfectly! The cheesecake with the crème brulee topping with fresh berries is my ABSOLUTE favorite dessert!"

  • "While we do go to the Capital Grille for other occasions, my friend and I share a birthday and have gone here for our special luncheon for many years. We have always been with professionalism and attentiveness, our table is decorated, service is excellent. I had Sea Bass for lunch which was baked in a broth and the best I have ordered anywhere. My friend ordered the steak salad and, again, it was excellent with the meat being extremely tender and tasty. After lunch we were treated to dessert, a glass of champagne, and given copies of a photo our waiter took of us. All-in-all, we left feeling very special and will definitely make our birthday celebration here next year."

  • "Was not impressed with our dining experience. Our waiter was overbearing, the food was average at best, we weren't met when we walked into the restaurant and had to look around for help. I would have to say that the only good thing was my scotch on the rocks looked like a double. Not impressed, and do not think that we will be back."

  • "We had been to CG a few times 5 years ago and thought it was good but not great....oh how things have improved....we are food snobs and could not have been more impressed, best meal and experience in Indy....bar none....highly reccomend, I have never given 5 stars for all three catagories at any rest. in Open table and that includeds many fine places in NYC,Boston, Chicago and SFran."

  • "We went for Father's Day. I thought we were going for brunch. When we got there we were told it was a lunch menu. I was disappointed until I saw the lunch menu. Incredible choices! I had the scallops and risotto--DELICIOUS. Two of us had the beef tenderloin sliders--FABULOUS--and the other had the lobster roll--YUM. Everything was super tasty. And then we had dessert. It was a piece of heaven. The coconut cream pie-probably the best coconut dessert I've ever had. Flourless chocolate espresso torte-absolutely fantastic. Eating the two of these desserts together was unbelievable. Also the mint lemonade was refreshing and delicious. The service was better than great--glasses always full, table always cleared. Wonderful meal."

  • "I liked the restaurant ambience very much, and our server was amazing. My boss eats here all the time, and now I see why. My only complaint are the vegetables on the vegetable plate, which I was not happy with the choices of the vegetables. I would highly recommend cooked potatoes, mushrooms, broccoli, califlower, etc. There were a lot of side dishes that include vegetables that were not on the vegetable dish. My date really enjoyed his steak."

  • "We visit the Capital Grille every time we go to Indy. The food is always great! The service is exceptional. The servers and attendants are attentive and at the ready. There is one thing I have noticed, they have retained a lot of their staff. I see the same employees year after year...... that speaks volumes to me. Well trained, know their customers, know the business, etc. Just an all around great place.......breakfast, lunch, or dinner."

  • "Once again this restaurant came through again. The food was excellent, the atmosphere was great and the service was the best. It was our 45th wedding anniversity so we had a special table with a card and rose peddles. We even got a free dessert which was unexpected. The waiter Jose Vaquaze was wonderful and very attentive."
