  • "as a regular patron of capital grille in other cities, i was truly disappointed by our first foray into the memphis outpost. as a couple obviously on date night, i've no idea why the hostess elected to seat next to the table with kids while the rest of the room was vacant from the time of our arrival till we departed (quickly) - far from romantic. my steak was overcooked (ordered rare, appeared medium+) & lobster tails cool; my wife's steak was undercooked. sides were fine. our server (David) was polite & attentive, proactively voiding the charge for my meal. as a fan of the brand i expect we will return at some point, but we'll choosing ruth's (across the street) for the immediate future."

  • "Our dinner at Capital Grill could not have been more enjoyable. The service was flawless. The "Generous Pour" selection was very good and a great value. The portions were much larger than you would expect in a fine dinning restaurant. The server's attention to detail in arranging for our car to be brought around at exactly the right time was impressive. Everything was absolutely wonderful."

  • "The food was amazing. Especially their mashed potatoes. The server was very polite and knowledgeable. But overall the experience was phenomenal. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys fine dining with great quality food."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "My family went for a special occasion. The food was good but the service was very poor. It took over 3 hours for us to finish our meal and pay. The wait times between courses were extremely long. The waiter apologized once for a "backlog " but should that be an excuse.....on a Tuesday night? The Capital Grill is a very expensive restaurant so the food should be outstanding and the service should be excellent. We were disappointed in both areas."

  • "Service can be variable, we had a good one at dinner that night. There was some issue with the kitchen, as our food came out all at once and an hour after ordering. Steak was warm, not hot, I think it had been sitting out for a while. We tried the generous pour, but the wines were not as memorable as when we tried it in 2012. We were disappointed."

  • "No other place can stand up to this place for special occasion, or just taken out for a nice dinner."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "My only complaint is that the tables are over crowded with glasses and silverware and oversized menus and lamps so when they brought bread and drinks we had two spills because it was over packed on one tiny table for four people"
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "We have been to this restaurant twice now, and both times we experienced poorly prepared steaks. One was ordered medium, one was ordered medium +, and both steaks came out RAW! The manager tried to explain it away as the steaks we recieved were "what they call medium." I guess it does not matter what the customer thinks. We will continue to go to other Capital Grill locations, and hope this one can get better."

  • "Had a *lovely* dinner at The Capital Grille tonight for a belated anniversary celebration. Booked our reservation through OpenTable, where I'd mentioned that it was our anniversary. We were greeted at the door by staff members who wished us happy anniversary. There was a card waiting for us at our table, wishing us a happy anniversary. Our waiter gave us each a complimentary glass of champagne (complete w/ a fresh raspberry). After a fabulous meal, we asked for a dessert menu, at which point we were served with a beautiful complimentary dessert. Our experience couldn't have been nicer! We will go back ... after we save up some more change from the couch cushions!"

  • "This was an incredible experience! Our server Eric was very attentive, without being intrusive, and helped to make our evening special. Our table was even tastefully decorated with hearts and a special Happy Anniversary handwritten note. The food was impeccably and properly prepared - the first time (no sending steaks back here)! My wife and I also LOVED the Lobster Mac and Cheese. We will absolutely return for another special occasion dining experience!"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "By far one of the best meals and the best service we have experienced in Memphis in a long time. The attentive service reminded me of the level of service I have not experienced since the days of Justine's. Steaks were perfect. Next time will try the seabass."

  • "The best restaurant in Memphis. Valet parking staff was great also. Food and drinks are top notch."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Early evening business dinner was surprised at the noise level making conversation a little difficult of our party of 6. Food was done well, with steaks, lamb the choice of the table side dishes were good though the amount of asparagus was small. The wine list was fine, yet as most drank red therefore a bottle was picked, the choice by glass of white was limited."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "A very nice ambience. Server Gav was fantastic. We never wanted for anything and he was extremely informative. Calamari appetizer was a little tough and needed a sauce, which is a difficult one to get right. The filet and Delmonico ribeye were good, but not great for the price. The creamed corn and au gratin potatoes again were decent, but nothing special. The cheesecake and flourless chocolate cake were both excellent. A manager never stopped by to ask how the experience was going which we feel is always a nice touch. Overall we really enjoyed the experience, but did not think the prices are justified for the food. There are other prime steakhouses (Folks Follys, Ruth's Chris, Fleming's) with as good or better food for 15-20% less."

  • "This location made my anniversary a one to remember."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "A bit far, but a good lunch spot. The coffee was lukewarm, and we had to request a new cup to replace it. The hamburger was well done (we requested medium) and I had the asparagus risotto with scallops. The scallops were good, risotto was soupy. The watermelon and arugula salad had a few leaves of arugula and very little watermelon, I recommend sticking with the field greens salad instead. The basics are good there."

  • "When your guest book reservations do not share the booking anyone but that guest (at the front desk) . Also do not assume two people are married."

  • "Had a great experience with my wife for our anniversary. Exceptional food, wine and service. It is quite expensive so bring your wallet. Great for a special occasion."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "This is our favorite steakhouse in Memphis. I went there for Father's Day, and we had the calcamari with hot peppers ( very good) and the porterhouse steak. The one thing we noticed was that the steak came out immediately after we had finished our appetizer, and it was warm instead of hot. I wondered if it had been sitting out for a little while. The cheesecake dessert was good, although I thought the texture was not as creamy as the NY Capital Grille. Overall, a good experience. Our waitress was a bit inexperienced, and couldn't recommend any wines for us to try."

  • "My experience here was great. My fiancé and I enjoyed it to the fullest. It was very romantic for us with the dim lights and soft music. The service was great and the food was delicious. I give it 5 stars!!!"
