    The Capital Grille is one of my favorite restaurants for consistently excellent food and service. My friend had never been here, and she was very impressed with her delicious filet Oscar, cooked perfectly to rare. Our server graciously asked the kitchen if she could have an 8 oz. filet instead of a 12 oz., and they complied. My favorite lobster mac & cheese (listed as a side) was creamy, rich and delicious although there was a little less lobster than usual. Nevertheless, I couldn't finish it! Grilled asparagus was the perfect accompaniment. We skipped dessert but enjoyed excellent coffee, made our theater curtain with time to spare, with attentive but leisurely service. A lovely meal!

    We went for our 10th wedding anniversary. They seated us in a quiet corner, gave us an anniversary card with rose petals on the table, took a picture of us and gave us a keepsake. The server was the best I've had (and I am a critical patron), and the food was delicious. The lobster crab cake was excellent as well as the salmon. Will definitely there again!

    We arrived at 10:55 and were seated right away. We were given dinner menu's. After waiting 10 minutes for our server to arrive we asked about breakfast. We were told they had stop serving. This makes no sense since the resturant is located inside a hotel. After expressing disappointment. we asked for a lunch menu. After another 10 minute wait, our server returned with a lunch menu. Meal service seemed very slow. The food was fine, nothing epic. Service continued to be slow, even as we came to the end of our meal, we never saw our server and did not get refills on our drinks. They really missed the target. We will not return.

Top notch service that was professional but not stuffy, incredible wine list, and delicious meal provided a great break from college fare for my son and a very pleasant evening for all of us!

    Very nice dinner while in town for a Colts Game. Service was fabulous and they really pulled out all the stops as this was the first time we had a chance to celebrate the wife's birthday. Food was awesome - nice wine selection - we didn't want to get a full bottle this night so we both got a glass. They have some wonderful wines by the glass. That way both of us got what we wanted..... Thanks for a great evening.

    I made reservations for 4 for a suprise for my husband. I told them it was his birthday and that he had no idea that we had another couple joining us. We were in town from St Louis and they live there and we had'nt seen them in 2 years. I specifically told them that when we arrived to say table for 2. I was assured that they would not ruin the suprise and have the table set for 2. We arrived and gave them the last name and the hostess said oh table for 4 you have guests joining you. Dead giveaway and suprise was lost. Secondly, we could never find our waiter. Very slow service. Food and wine was good service bad

    We had a delightful dining experience! It was my dad's 88th b-day and he loved the b-day card and the little candies decorating our table. Our waiter was the BEST! We were well taken care of, but not rushed. The food was yummy! Daddy received a b-day dessert, ample for the 4 of us to share. We also received a complimentary glass of bubbly at the end of our meal. We ALL will return to the Capital Grille. It was a fabulous way to celebrate!

    We went to the Capital Grill on Saturday Evening, August 31, 2014 for our 17th wedding anniversary and my In-Laws 60th wedding anniversary. There were 7 of us, including my son, daughter-in-law and 7 year old grandson. My mother-in-law has a difficult time walking. When we arrived for our 7 PM reservations, they had our table completely in the back of the restaurant. When we told them she would not be able to walk that distance, they immediately got a table setup very close to the door in a smaller side room. There was no problem or hesitation with this change. Our meals were very good and prepared well. We had a wonderful evening and would recommend The Capital Grill in Indy!

    The food was very good, but not fancy. The steak was excellent and cooked to perfection. The lobster bisque and salad was very enjoyable. I loved the salad dressing. There was nothing remarkable about the side of mashed potatoes and green beans. But the service was excellent. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the wines. We took advantage of the "Generous Pour" wine deal that they had going on and the waiter took the time to share what he knew about the wines and paired them with our courses. He even split our soup and salad for us as we were sharing them. We had a very enjoyable experience.

    I could pay 30 dollars and have a great flavorful steak at Harry and Izzy's. My steak at Capital Grille lacked flavor. I had to send it back when i first received it because it had a burnt on the bottom. Thr next steak lacked flavor but it wasnt burnt! For the price i have to say that i was not impressed by the food. My hostess was great.

    As always the food & service was fantastic, Plus we made a late change in our reservations from 6 people to 8 - There was not a table for 8 available for the time we wanted. I call and the manager spoke to me and said he would make it work - it would probably be tight. When we got there he was able to sit a party that originally had 8 but only 6 showed so we were able to sit at a table for 8. Thank you = Brad

    First I had to ask the waiter for the Devour Downtown menu and black napkin as it wasn't offered. My dining partner, I must say, loved her meal. Clam chowder, Cheeseburger with Parmesan Truffle Fries, and Flourless Chocolate Cake. Since I had dinner plans, I wanted to stay on the lighter side of the menu. I don't like Clam chowder and didn't want to have a salad followed by a salad, so opted out of the first course. The Chicken Caesar salad was just good, not outstanding. The chicken was moist but the salad itself seemed a little dry. The chocolate cake was very good. The waiter forgot that we had already ordered dessert from the DD menu and brought us a regular dessert menu. All in all, not what I expect from the Capital Grille.

    When other steak houses are serving a smaller steak, tips instead of center cuts, and smaller portions for the Devour Downtown restaurant weeks, Capitol Grill always is the champ! They serve their regular steaks and entrees at the reduced price. Aaron, the GM is always a gentleman! The staff couldn't be better! Top notch! Can't use enough superlatives about this gem!

    You don't typically use "value" in relationship to Capital Grille.. however, the Devour Indy menu + the Generous Pour wine flight, this is an awesome meal for the $. I added the $3 porcini rub to my steak and was a happy camper. I did just 3 of the 7 wines... and they keep pouring until I was done drinking.... I have always had Capital Grille at the top of my list for the Devour Indy promotion...and it will remain there!!

    The Captial Grille does an excellent job of making a special occasion special. With that said, there's always a reason to dine here - the food is outstanding. My sirloin was as tender as my wife's filet and those potatoes were the best we've ever had. Don't skip the flourless chocolate cake - it's so delicious.

    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!
