Diner Reviews
  • "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"

  • "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
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Was very disappointed with this restaurant and felt that it did not compare with locations in other cities. The quality of my steak did not compare to other steakhouses in Memphis."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "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."

  • "My fiancee and I dined here for her birthday and everything was excellent! Our waiter Scott may have been the best waiter I've ever had, seriously! He even brought out a couple birthday treats for my fiancee without me having to ask him."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "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."

  • "We visited the Capital Grille for the first time this past weekend for our 16 year wedding anniversary. We were very pleased with our dinner and the romantic setting. The service was wonderful. The staff remembered our anniversary and even had a card waiting on our table for us. The food was amazing and we will definitely be back."

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I've eaten in about a third of the Capital Grille locations around the country. I choose them because of their high standards and consistency. The Memphis store missed the mark. Steak was not hot or seasoned well. Sides were delivered several minutes after the steaks, which allowed the steak to get even cooler. CG should never be below 4 stars."

  • "Had reservations for 7PM on a Friday evening for our anniversary. Great Manhattan straight up with rye. 10 oz Filets were cooked spot-on and seasoned appropriately. Wife ordered well-done, and they got it 100% the way she liked it. Highly recommend Capital for high quality steaks of any cut. Creme Brulee wasn't as solid as I prefer, but had a good taste and was well caramelized on surface. Service was good, but our server did forget to ask whether I wanted Manhattan on rocks or straight up, but was immediately rectified. Section manager stopped by to ask how our food and service was. Overall, a very good dining experience."

  • "My husband and I haven't been able to get out much anymore now that we have entered parenthood. To celebrate my husband's first Father's Day, I got a sitter and made reservations here. I'm not big on chains, but I've heard great things about this one. Its definitely a pricier meal, but well worth it. We arrived early and had each had a dirty martini (with blue cheese stuffed olives!) at the bar while we waited for our table to be ready. When we were seated our server asked us if we were celebrating anything special and was very knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. They make a great caprese salad (they make their own mozzarella). I also had the filet with mushrooms, and the coconut pie. Both to die for!"

  • "ate at the capital grill with my wife, her meal of halibut fish was excellent, the appetizers were good and the service was great, but I ordered a boned in filet, hoping for a great steak with extra flavor because of the bone. when the steak arrived it had a glazed sauce on it. In my opinion for steaks this expensive you should not have a sauce on the steak. I believe this steak was a nightly special and maybe if someone said it came with sauce I would have ordered differently Maybe I am wrong, there is just to many great steak houses in Memphis I don't believe I will be back. But my wife loved the fish. "

  • "Some restaurants are a representation of a chef's personality or a family's approach to food and dining. Capital Grille is a contrived physical manifestation of a corporate marketing department. It is elegantly appointed, employing all of the cliches of an old flagship establishment. Upon walking in I gathered that the menu wouldn't be creative and that I would simply order and enjoy a steak. That's what these places do best, right? The waitress told us that they are famous for their steaks, seafood and wine list. Isn't that like saying you're known for serving food? The 'specials' are just menu items with sides already picked. My medium rare steak was so rare it was cold in the center. Expensive mediocre food and wine. Now I know. "

  • "Looking for a new experience for our 38th anniversary, we had heard about the Capitol Grill and wanted to give it a try. We were certainly not disappointed! The food, the staff and the decor was excellent. Service flowed like a well timed ballet and everyone we came in contact with was pleasant and knowledgable. They even surprised us with a special desert and champaign toast!! Class act from start to finish! True example of " you get what you pay for"!!"

  • "There were a few small things, like they didn't have the champagne I ordered but found a suitable replacement. This is a very expensive restaurant so you expect the food and service to be great. They didn't disappoint. The food was presented nicely and the server was attentive. The Steak Oscar was note-worthy. We will be back."

  • "We have been to the Orlando location a couple of times and recommend it highly. We're glad to have a location in Memphis now as well. The steaks are just about as good as they get and the wine list is extensive. There are some additional nice picks which are not listed. Our waiter, Darrell, was engaging, upbeat and knowledgeable. His presence and efficient service raised the bar for performance. I'll ask to be seated in his section again. Call early for reservations on weekends. "

The food was the best meal I've had in a while. While we paid fairly handsomely for the meal the service and ambiance were perfect for the evening. Definitely would recommend to family and friends!"

  • "Our team went there for a work anniversary lunch. We had reservations so we were seated immediately. The staff was friendly and attentive. The ambiance was quite nice. The food had some unique stylings (truffle fries, etc.) and most were very tasty. The only complaint of all 7 diners was by the one person who had the filet mignon sliders. The meat was cold by the time it was delivered to the table. It left us wondering if it had been the first dish complete and sitting out the longest. Overall, a very good meal and I intend to come back."
