Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

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."

  • "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"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "I was here for a business meeting so I knew it would take longer, just because of the nature of our dinner. However, the entrees took quite a while, which was surprising for a Tuesday evening. The waiter, who was wonderful, told us there were quite a few big groups that night and apologized for the delay. Luckily, it was a Tuesday night and we had no other obligations so it wasn't really a big deal. Everything was just so good, and the service as always was great."

  • "Our reservation was for 7:30, we did not get seated until 8, and by 8:20 still had yet to see a waitress. Food was ordered and two of the six meals had to be sent back because they were not cooked appropriately. Very disappointed because we were there to celebrate my parents 35th anniversary. Will never go back! "

  • "We loved everything about this restaurant ... from the bar, bartenders, interesting martini list ... to the upscale and even romantic atmosphere, despite the bustling ambiance. Our waiter, Richard, was expertly trained, extremely knowledgeable and properly friendly. Everyone was so attentive, and treated us like regulars (sadly, we are not, as we do not reside in KC). Food was excellent; generous portions, and prepared beautifully. Had been to Capital Grille in other cities and forgot how much I love this place. Not a typical chain ... they function like a free-standing restaurant where every customer matters. We'll be back!"

  • "Always wonderful--from the minute we entered the restaurant until we left. This was my daughter's first visit to The Capital Grille and she loved it. This was a Mother-Daughter lunch to celebrate a new job and the beginning of her bachelorette party weekend. She loved the food and the wine and our waiter was excellent and very knowledgeable. The food was delicious, as always. Will definitely come back the next time we are in Kansas City."

  • "The CG is a pretty typical NY style steak house. Dark wood, beef and ala cart sides. Service is excellent and accommodating. Food is average though steaks are better. Very good wine list which is presented on a tablet allowing for a variety of searching. Nice feature. This is a $$$$ place."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "Having went to several different Capital Grill's in NY I wanted to give the KC location a try being my birthday and all however after going here, I can say the standards are higher in other locations. When we lived in NY we dined some KC friends at the Chrysler building location in Manhattan and were treated to Red Carpet treatment INCLUDING a bottle of champagne on the house!! Not the same here. The meal was OK, just nothing spectacular. Wife having the bone-in filet was nice and my standard Delmonico was OK but the Oscar style potatoes were soggy and lacked significant crab meat. 3 people sat 15 minutes after us, across from us and were served apps and entrees before we got ours. Seen better unfortunately...."

  • "Food was terrific on Mother's Day. No one does better beef and deserts than Cap Grill. It was a bit overcrowded. Reda is the best waiter in the house! Not cheap, but worth every penny."
