Diner Reviews
  • "We came to celebrate my husband's birthday. Our server, Jenny, was extraordinary - friendly, accommodating (as we were observing Passover and had to limit some of our food choices) and even brought me a wrap when the air conditioning was making me uncomfortably chilly. The food was outstanding, with my family remarking that the filet mignon was the best in the city. We'll be back soon! "

  • "This was our first but certainly not last visit to Capital Grille. We went to celebrate our anniversary. The service was wonderful and the food was outstanding. The decorated our table which included a rose when they learned why we were there. They also gave us a complimentary dessert plate. This was the best dining experience of mine and my husband's."

  • "We had a awesome birthday dinner here. The staff were so friendly and helpful....... I would not get the Lobster, as their are other selections that are much better. I should know that I need to go to a seafood restaurant for that, but the steak was great and we will certaintly go back!"

  • "We treated another couple to dinner as a payback for a terrific kindness they had done for us! They had never been to the Capital Grille and it did not disappoint. The food and service were outstanding! We never felt rushed and our server was so knowledgeable and helpful. The whole experience was the perfect gift for our guests!!! Thank you for being a jewel on the Plaza!"

  • "Our experience was wonderful as we enjoyed great food, wine and service celebrating my wife's birthday. If I would change anything I would have wished we could have been seated in another area away from the main traffic area of the restaurant."

  • "Been there many times when in KC. Was somewhat disappointed this time. The lobster bisque base was very good, but the lobster meat had been roasted or somehow overcooked and was dry. Wasn't the silky succulent bisque I had enjoyed before. Our steaks were fine. That's all. Fine. Have had great beef there in the past, but they were just average this time. Not overly impressed for the price, especially with the previous good experiences we had enjoyed there. Will be moving them way down on the list of "must do" for the next trip to KC. Too many other exciting places."

  • "Our group had a great experience at Capital Grille. We started at the bar and willingly waited almost 45 minutes. Once we sat the manager provided free appetizers to thank us for waiting patiently. We were thrilled and the mozzarella stuffed prosciutto was delicious. Think "back wrapped dates" only oozy gooey mozzarella inside. All the food and service were impeccable. I also loved the wine list on an ipad. Really user friendly and fun! I would highly recommend a trip to Capital Grille in KC."

  • "Our experience from the beginning was wonderful. The server was amazing, the bread was fantastic, the apps were very good as well. However, when the main dish came out I have to say I was a little disappointed. I absolutely love lobster so when the option was a filet and lobster at Capital Grille I did not think I could go wrong. I thought the steak and lobster would melt in my mouth. The steak was good don't get me wrong but I felt like it was something I have cooked at home. The lobster was a little tough and again I have cooked lobster at home and it turns out about the same way. I just thought for the price it would have been AMAZING! I was lucky enough to have a gift certificate so I was not going to complain."

  • "Very good food I really liked the lobster mac & cheese. The service was awesome and on top of whatever we needed. I will defiantly be going back and recommending this restraint to friends as well. The waiter was excellent as well."

  • "Capital is consistently perfect on service and flavors. Ordered a couple of items off menu at a simple request and server had it taken care of. Demonic bone in rib eye is the best I have had yet once again. Do yourself a flavor and go here on your next weekend."

  • "First time in Kansas City and decided to take a friend out for dinner. It was her first experience at Capital Grille. I have been to Capital Grille plenty of times in Florida so I knew she was in for a treat. I asked if she minded if I ordered for the night and she was happy with the idea. My order consisted of : Lobster Bisque Fresh Mozzarella, Tomato and Basil with 15-Year Aged Balsamic Porcini Rubbed Delmonico with 15-Year Aged Balsamic Roasted Wild Mushrooms Needless to say she was impressed with the service, food, and the restaurant. This is one of my favorite places to eat not only for dinner but I like to sneak in for lunch...and she cant stop thinking about the Lobster Bisque."

  • "Having eaten at other Capital Grille's in other cities, we knew that the food would be great with a good selection, centered primarily on steaks. And this Capital Grille did not disappoint in that regard. However, the service was absolutely outstanding - probably the best service experience in years. The attention to detail, the willingness, to go the "extra step" to make sure everything was perfect, the knowledge of our server -- all exceeded expectations."

  • "This was my first visit to Capital Grille and I must say I was definitely impressed. Our waitress Celia was dynamic! When I go back I will definitely request to be seated in her area. I liked the fact that everyone was willing to help and make sure that our dining experience was nothing less than perfect. Great Job!!!"

  • "The service was impeccable, 5 star. The steaks were 5 star.The spinach salad lacked flavor, and the flavor was weird sweet nutmeg. People want Boston market cream spinach, not this foo foo kind. The side vegetables also lacked flavor and were not has good as the steaks. The Potatoes Au Gratin would have been no flavorful, it lacked taste, however they were creamy. I would work on the side dishes and the spinach salad (not enough dressing, and lacked flavor. Too much spinach leafs in the salad as well. bacon pieces were too big. Also, you should offer another version with walnuts, strawberries, and raspberry vinaigrette dressing. Your rated 41/2 stars . I would say make these small changes I have suggested and you could achieve a 5 star."

  • "This restaurant is a delight. We intentionally save it for special occasions though it is hard to not visit it on a regular basis. The service is impeccable; the food is always outstanding; the entire staff is welcoming. What more could one desire in a fine restaurant?"

  • "We visited Capital Grille during Restaurant Week and I was nervous about whether or not the food would hold up to the normal standards of this restaurant. I have to say...they did not disappoint! The food and service were great even though the price of the meal was about 1/2 of what I would normally pay. I would highly recommend to anyone who loves great food."

  • "First time to Capital Grill. Loved the ambiance and the overall experience. While my steak was good, it was not the best steak I have ever had, and in fact was a bit tough. For the price point and the reputation of this establishment a tough steak is the last thing I expected. My wife's sea bass, while good was served sitting in a bowl of (basically) soup, which is not what was expected. Would not order that again. Would I go back. Yes, but only because fine dining in KC is so limited but I find this experience disappointing."

  • "We celebrated a postponed anniversary and a late Valentine's Day. Excellent service and food remarkable. Kona Delmonico, lobster mac n cheese, mushrooms, mozzarella salad and French onion soup. The server brought us a Happy Anniversary plate for dessert with cheesecake and flourless chocolate cake on the house. The manager remembered our names as we left the restaurant. Excellent leftovers (the steaks are so large, we can eat 3-4 more times off them. Highly recommend going early and on a non-holiday weekend to get the best and most accurate service. Plan to attend every anniversary if not more often!"

  • "Some people say it's noisy but that's only at the bar. We come every year for valentines day and always get a quite booth or a table in the wine room. The food is always great: the crab cakes are amazing and full of meat. For dessert we recommend getting the flourless chocolate espresso cake and the raspberry sorbet and eat them together: orgasmic. The best part is getting your picture taken. We are saving all of ours to make a collage for our 25 anniversary. So we will always be coming back."

  • "As usual, our experience at the Capital Grill was another great eating experience. The food from start to finish was perfect in every way. Our beef selections, both ordered mid-rare, were cooked to perfection. Only one minor issue this time was our server forgot my wine to be served with the main course. I had to remind the person I had the glass coming. Overall, another great time and event for us."
