    We were attending a football game at Lucas Oil Stadium on Saturday 9/13/14 and were also celebrating my birthday. It was the perfect location for all of our family to meet then walk to the game. Our table was decorated with candy and also a card wishing me a Happy Birthday. We enjoyed the drinks and dinner and will come back when we are in Indianapolis again.

    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

    Once again, we had a fine dining experience here. We mainly selected items from the promotional menu, but our wait staff made a good effort to let us know about upgrades to the regular items and options available for preparation. The service was timely and professional. The food was prepared well and was quite tasty. I would definitely recommend the restaurant to my friends.

    Dined on 8/28/2014
    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!)

    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.

    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!

    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.
