    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.

    We celebrated our 4th anniversary here. Our 1st time to Capital Grille. Our waiter, Richard, was very attentive and lead us professionally throughout the experience. We were most pleased. We will be back! Everything was delicious. Be sure to get a taste of the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella appetizer!

    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.

    As always, the food was impeccably delicious as was the service. We would have liked being a bit more private, the tables are a too close, and we would have prefer not to overhear business discussions. Even with that, we will still return for the great menu that is always consistently great. overhear.

    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.

  • Anniversary at Capital Grille

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
