    I took my wife, my father and two of his closest friends to Capital Grille to celebrate his 90th birthday on November 21st. Everyone's meal was outstanding, but I want to give even more praise to Zach Ferguson our waiter. He did everything possible to make this celebration as special as possible for him. Having a very limited appetite, my father didn't order an app/salad or a dessert, but when those courses were being served Zach made sure that my father had a small app and dessert (tiny cake with candles!) so he didn't feel left out while we were all eating. The restaurant provided a complimentary round of champagne for toasts. Zach took into consideration my father's limited hearing when he addressed our group. I wanted to make the evening special and Zach and Capital Grille hit a home run. My father is still talking about his party two days later! I should also add that Zach made certain that my wife's medically-required gluten free diet was being properly addressed.

    Back in 2002, I proposed to my wife at table two. Every year, we go back and celebrate this event at the same table, until 2010. In 2010, we had the worst service, the food was not cooked to our liking and they couldn't give us our table we requested. With this and other things going on in our lives, 2010 was the last time we went until this past Saturday Nov. 15, 2014, we thought we would try it again. We pulled up and was promptly met with the valet, he was quick to park our car. We were the first ones there as they'd just opened for the evening and were shown to our table. It was enjoyable sitting at the same table that I had proposed to my beautiful wife again. The wait staff was quick with getting us our drinks and the food was served promptly. We asked for more bread and butter and I enjoyed a cup of coffee at the end of our meal. As we left, we had to fight through a crowd of people standing in the doorway to get our coats that we had checked in. With that being said, we had a great time. Since we have changed the date we used to go every year, we might try changing our night out to the summer so the fight through the crowd is less evasive.

    The food was well worth the price. Hotel had notified them that it was our 40th Anniversary and the went the extra effort to help us celebrate it, and it seemed like every employee knew and wished us a Happy Anniversary. This was our first time at the Grille and the steaks were cooked to perfection. This will now be our place of choice for going our for Steak. Service here was also very good as they didn't bother you all the time like you get in some restaurants, but were very informative and freindly.

    Everything was topnotch and the service was exceptional. Our waitress kept the drinks coming for my husband, and iyr water glasses were refilled when needed without having to ask. A very, very good experience!!! Would highly recommend for any special occasion, or just a pleasant dining experience.

    Mediocre greeting on arrival (phones and computers seem more important than actual guests). Loud to very loud ambience which makes a productive conversation/business meal tough. The server was tactless, interrupting numerous times in an abrupt rude way. The interruptions included a circulating manager type as well which just added to the frustration of trying to do business. Got the impression they were focused on "the upsell", not the guests. The standard ahi tuna dish has been changed and now is a pedestrian dish with tuna cooked not so well. Not recommended and particularly given the prices. Very disapppointing. Will not be returning.

    We asked for a nice quiet table and we were very nicely accommodated. Doug, our server came to introduce himself and take drink orders. He then came back to tell us about the evening's specials. He is very knowledgable about the menu and the food preparation. Our steaks came and they were cooked to perfection. We both opted to have our steaks prepared "Pittsburg style" and they were spectacular! I had the 22oz prime special Delmonico and my wife had the 10oz filet. Manager Matt came by to ask how our meal was--a very nice touch! The evening was perfect!

    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.

    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.

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.
