    I took my wife to Capital Grille for her birthday. We had reservations and were promptly seated upon arrival. Our server, Ashley, greeted us and offhandedly asked if we were celebrating any special occasions. The wine list was very extensive. We started by sharing shrimp cocktail. The shrimp were huge and the cocktail sauce was served with horseradish on the side (which we quickly added) - very tasty! I ordered a Kona Crusted Filet Mignon while my wife went for the Seared Tenderloin with Lobster Tail. Both were amazing dishes - cooked perfectly! Ashley was a terrific server - she anticipated our needs yet was minimally intrusive. She surprised us with a special Birthday dessert. It was a perfect evening!

    The Capital Grill consistently delivers a wonderful dining experience. The food, service and ambiance are all outstanding. The only downside is the noise level can elevate when the restaurant is full. We love to make reservations prior to the rush to enjoy a more peaceful experience. You pay for the experience but I highly recommend it for both lunch and dinner.

    Took my now Fiance' here for her 30th Bday and was proposing the same night so I wanted it to be perfect. I called ahead and they offered to be involved and gave several ideas on how to propose, I decided to wait and do it later at our hotel when just the two of us however their help and ideas were greatly appreciated. Let me start this by saying this is bar none the best service I have received at a restaurant in Kansas City Metro Area by a mile, I am not from Kansas City and have only lived here for 2 years but I have ate at many of the so called top restaurants in the city and none compare to service. Right in Line with top restaraunts in other cities I've lived Miami, New York Seattle and others. Most memorable night of our life

    Went for anniversary and noted that in Open Table, then forgot I ha ever mentioned it. When we arrived our table had a rose and heart-shaped confetti and we were greeted by every single person with a "happy anniversary!". At the end of dinner we were greeted with a complimentary dessert tray and a our waitress took our picture, printed it out and gave us a little card to commemorate the night. Only negative was my wife's steak was incredibly dry and tough, but they comped it, tried to bring her other food, apologized literally 100 times (at a certain point it was almost annoying). Overall it was probably the most pampered dinner we have had since our honeymoon. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place for special occasions.

    We have been to this location several times. Service was not up to par. It took a while to order our dinner. Drinks were dry several times. They put us in the walking isle which was distracting and right next to kitchen servers despite early reservation and open tables. I guess for a $600 meal I expect better service and a table not in the isle. Sides and salads were excellent. Steam was average! No flavor & oscar sauce was too thick. Nice kids meal for the boys. The Ipad for drinks is a hip idea but it was confusing on how to search for the wines. We left some earphones behind. They we nice to call us to pick it up. When we arrived they were very rude and said they didnt have it and made us describe it. 5 min later! Odd.

    Decided to celebrate being married to a wonderful woman and having a great month business wise. We got our favorite server Jevene and as always the service was better than outstanding and the food was awesome as always. We only go to Capital Grill once or twice a year for special occasions but it is so worth it.

    my first time at this Capital Grille. I chose it because I wanted to get away from the crowd and downtown. No matter where you find a Cap Grill, it is always good food, drinks and service. Same here. I started with the spinach salad and decided to go fish tonight with the tuna choice. All good. Will be back on next visit.

    I love Capital Grill for the wonderful steaks and wine list - but we don't all need 10-20 oz steaks. The good news is that sharing is allowed! Sharing also lets you enjoy the appetizers or salads. But never room for dessert!

    Tremendous service and excellent food. Expensive but allways worth it. For the first time I tried something other than steak. It was sushi grad tuna that was seared on the top and bottom but rare all the way through. The tuna by itself was excellent but the accompanying sauces enhanced the taste.

    Very good experience. I would call the Capital Grill a high end restaurant, with good food, great service, lots of choices on the menu, very good wine list, and knowledgeable servers. The bar was packed and very noisy. That really is not bothersome though, however the noise level in the dining room was to high. Perhaps adding some wall treatments that absorb sound would help. Overall a suburb dining experience.

    Our server, Joshua Jones, was exceptionally knowledgeable, friendly & helpful. Steaks were wonderfully delicious! It was a great dining experience but we were surprised restaurant was a little noisy. Although service was great, there was a lull at one point that no one was checking on us, however restaurant was quite busy. Definitely a great restaurant selection especially for a special occasions.

    Excellent as usual. I had the Delmonico with balsamic vinegar reduction. Steak was great, reduction too much. I scraped the reduction off because it overwhelmed the flavor of the steak. My mistake. I should have stuck with steak only. Other 2 people in the group got fillets and loved them. Au gratin potatoes very good side also. We had a very nice Franciscan Cab. All in all a very good experience.

    My wife and I had our anniversary dinner at Capital Grille last Wednesday. It could not have been better. From being greeted at the door with "Happy Anniversary" to wait staff also extending best wishes, to one of the best waitresses we have ever had (Terresa), to fantastic food, it was a night to remember. When red roses were delivered to a nearby table, we commented to (Laura) how beautiful they were. Shortly after, she came by with two long-stemmed red roses. Even the location of our table was perfect -- away from the bustling activity, but not overly secluded. How could a restaurant do any better than that. We would HIGHLY recommend Capital Grille for that special occasion.

While the food was terrific, it was the attention of our server, Eric Spoon, that really made the outing spectacular. I highly recommend you request to be in his area if you are dining at Capital Grille.
