  • "enjoyed lunch at Capital Grille with a friend. The scallops were the best and the coconut cream pie was delicious"
    Dined on 8/25/2014
  • "We had a wonderful time it was a special occasion, 37 years of marriage. The service was perfect and very friendly. We look forward to returning and dining again, soon."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Capital Grille! The food and wine were amazing, and the staff were very knowledgeable about the menu! It was great for the special occasion and worth every penny!"
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 8/20/2014
  • "What a great experience! I took three employees that were celebrating milestone anniversaries and people are still talking about how great it was. 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."

  • "The greatness of this place remains the attention that is paid to its patrons by a team of people."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Never disappoints with top notch food and wine. The Generous Pour is not to be missed when it comes around each year. The wine was outstanding for the price and food could not have been better."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "The Capital Grille delivered on the hype. The service was great, the ambience was beautiful, but in the end it was all about the food. Steaks. All four of us had the best steak we'd ever had. Truly extraordinary."

  • "Anniversary diner highlighted by a complementary rose and champagne toast. Wife was very happy!"
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "A great place to celebrate a friend's birthday. Staff was very attentive and made sure that we felt welcome"
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "Steaks, top notch. Sides, delicious. But what we expected from previous "love it" visits, particularly for calamari and chopped salad disappointed. Calamari not crisp--actually was dough-y with fewer "rings" and more tentacles. And the chopped salad was roughly chopped in larger pieces, so not crunchy, finely diced and rave-worthy as before. Still will go, but wished we ordered other items to make up for this drop in quality."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "Nice atmosphere, good food, outstanding service. The steaks were excellent but the broiled lobster tail was not the premium offering I was expecting. Fair at best and not on a par with the steaks. The highlight was the exceptional service provided by Eric Spoon. He went out of his way to insure the best possible dining experience."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Went there to celebrate birthdays of two out of town guests. One, my sister-n-law from Miami, Florida has traveled extensively and eaten at many of the finer restaurants, said The Capital Grille dinner ranked right up there with one of the best meals she has ever eaten while out."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Our first visit to the Capital Grille was to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Our server Jo Ellen could not have been more attentive and helpful in explaining the menu to us. We truly felt we were being honored. The food was good but not exceptional. By far the complementary Mac & cheese was the most tasteful thing we ate. This is a beautiful restaurant and a showpiece for Kansas City."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "We really enjoyed celebrating our anniversary at Capital Grille. The service was outstanding. Every employee made us feel special. Of course, the food was excellent. The combination of food and service can't be beat."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Our server Celia was incredible the best I have ever had at any restaurant. Anticipated our needs and went above and beyond to make it the most outstanding lunch ever."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Another fantastic meal at The Capital Grille! We were celebrating my wife's birthday and our first night out after the birth of our son. The service we received from the time we walked in was amazing. My steak was a little under cooked when it arrived which wasn't a big deal, it happens. What surprised me was that I had 3 separate people come up and apologize. They hold themselves to higher standard than any other place we've eaten. My wife was treated to a delicious birthday dessert plate and they threw in an ice cream trio as well. This is exactly why we continue to choose The Capital Grille for our special occasions."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "The food and service were very good. I always forget how large the portions are here. Our waiter helped us tailor it somewhat, but we still over ordered. Nice Birthday Celebration."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "We celebrated my mother's 80th birthday and could not have been treated with more kindness or attention!"
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "The wife and I stayed on the Plaza in June for our anniversary. We always loved Ruth's Chris but, it had closed. We were looking for a great steak. I had ask the owner of the local cigar shop where he recommended. He mentioned the Plaza III. I told him the last time we had eaten there we weren't impressed. Then he mentioned The Capital Grille. I'd heard of it but the name always reminded me of something like a lunch counter. That is the farthest thing from the truth. It was wonderful, so Angle Eyes and I went back on my birthday. It was still terrific! The Capital Grille is now our new most favorite restaurant in all of KC!"
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "It was our first visit to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. We hd reservations for 8:30 and were seated by 8:35. The service and food were the best! Their Generous Pour program was GREAT! $25.00, seven wines....all you can drink, can't beat it! We will be going back and not just for a special occasions."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "As usual, Capital Grille delivered a terrific evening. Everything was great for us and for our guests. Always a top choice."

  • "We recently scheduled a luncheon/meeting at the Capital Grille and our entire experience was nothing short of phenomenal! Our waiter, Steve C. was fantastic! He was attentive, professional and very efficient. We have dined at your restaurant on many occasions and have always had a memorable time. We highly recommend The Capital Grille, and if it's possible to request a table with Steve C., we'd do so in a heartbeat! Bill & Cyndi Seifert"

  • "I entertain clients at Capital Grille frequently, and it is always a great experience and nothing has ever gone wrong. Very consistent, and the food is awesome."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "There simply isn't a better dining experience in Kansas City. The calamari appetizer is outstanding. We had a steak and lobster tail combo listed as one of the daily specials and it was excellent. They also offer a very unique adaptation of cream pie for dessert we occasionally order as a carry out item when we want to impress guests for a meal in our home. The food and service rival any other place we have eaten all around the world."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "What a fabulous dinning experience. The Captain Steve C was as entertaining and service oriented as the excellent food we had. Couldn't have been any better from their end. We wish we had more time but had to head to a concert."

  • "we were dining to celebrate a special occasion. the table had flower petals and hearts; lovely. Very attentive staff especially Hunter Scott, highly recommend him; a gem. Good food, wine. had a wonderful time. The only down size is the noise level. too high. thank you again for a wonderful celebration for my husband and I."

  • "A perfect place for our Wedding Anniversary. What a fabulous night we had at the Capital Grille celebrating our important date. The perfectly prepared meal was only exceeded by the impeccable service we received from Hunter. We have now a place to go to for our special events and also when we just want an evening of fine dining. Without hesitation or reservation (a reservation is recommended) we recommend the Capital Grille to everyone."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "My wife and daughter had a awesome meal, the Lobster Mac N Cheese was the best. My steak was under cooked the first time, sent it back and then it came back burnt! Not a good taste for a $44 steak. Will be back, yes, just was not happy."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Had a superb dinner at CG. Waiters are outstanding and take their role in your dining experience serious. Food was presented perfectly and was better then it looked. Big thumbs up. My favorite restaurant in Kansas City."

  • "The Ribeye Delmonico is their signature steak and is the best steak in KC. We go to Capital Grille for special occasions, like birthdays and anniversaries, and we are never disappointed. The chef, cook and wait staff are all professional and cater to your comfort and taste. No better place to eat in KC, 5 Stars."

  • "We enjoyed the Kona steak along with lobster tails and a side, wine and complimentary champagne and dessert. The cost was very reasonable, the service and quality spectacular. The steak and lobster both were unbelievably good. They were very helpful in splitting the steak for us and cooking each portion to the desired temperature. I would recommend this restaurant for a special occasion anytime."

  • "We had nearly perfect service. Attentive, but not hovering. Recommendations when requested. Knew the menu and listened to what we wanted to find on the menu. And we were going to Starlight after dinner and before going home, so the waiter designed a way to keep our leftovers cool until we got home. Absolutely delightful evening. And the food was great."
