    I visit Capital Grilles often because they are so reliable. My "home" CG, in Atlanta, is fantastic. This one in Miami was a disappointment. The steak was good but the calamari wasn't, and the drinks took forever to arrive. The room itself is awkward and getting in and out requires an elevator ride and a walk through a parking garage. Wouldn't go back to this one.

    In the past i loved going to Capital Grill for their famous Wedge Salad and Delicious steak. In this occurance, the steak was great but the potato side was cold. I did not receive a replacement one until after i finished my steak. The managment staff was great in taking the side off the bill and offering us a complimentary dessert.

    I was hosting a small birthday celebration & in advance delivered a birthday cake . I was also advised there would be a complimentary dessert for the celebrant & asked to be sure to present the bill to ME . The waiter was very attentive for starters . He presented the cake to the celebrant & from that point , it was downhill. Three cake slices were served but we didn't start eating , as the honoree had NO cake ---until after quite a delay--trying to catch someone's eye . NO complimentary dessert was offered & another server brought the bill to another guest --NOT to me.. Luckily , we were all good sports, but because of inferior service for a foursome , I was embarrassed .

    This steakhouse is doing many things right in a time that to succeed a restaurant oftentimes has to reinvent itself. This place does it without losing its identity and old school charm. Had the Delmonico with the soicy calamari to start (both excellent). The staff is always very helpful and in great spirit.

    The food was great, the setting wonderful. It's hard to find anything wrong but if I had to pick one thing it is that at times the waiters were not as readily available as we'd like. That is nit picking a bit, since I really have no complaints.

    Business dinner in Miami. I have dined in most of CG's locations nationwide many times. As alwyays My seat was facing an outdoor window and there was an outdoor light shining through the window, through the blinds, right in my face. It was very distracting. The manager came over and tried to adjust the blinds, did not work. Offered to move us to another table. We were already into our salads. Voila! The manager found a way to turn the outdoor light fixture off!! That is service. Food was outstanding as always. Martinis shaken perfectly, steaks were beautifully prepared, waiter was there when needed and more. Just love Capital Grille for all those reasons. My favorite go to steak restaurant in the US, bar none!! Keep up the good work.

    We brought our friends from Spain for dinner. Being from New England I ordered a 3lb steamed NE lobster and had it spilt in half to share. It was delicious and perfectly prepared. My friend from Valencia known for their seafood really enjoyed the lobster. My husband enjoyed his filet and our other friend enjoyed salmon. We had wonderful service and left satisfied and very happy.

    Capital Grille has been a long-time favorite of mine. They make excellent steaks, and have a great wine list. We tried the bone-in Kona which is a strip steak with a coffee rub and butter shallot sauce. The meat was flavorful and tender. We also enjoyed the prosciutto-wrapped mozzarella which was sautéed prosciutto and alarm mozzarella with a balsamic reduction and cherry tomatoes. The kitchen was kind enough to make us un-breaded calamari which came in a spicy sherry sauce. We skipped dessert because we were full, but they have some great options too.

    When looking for good food, properly prepared and served hot, this is a winner each time. Be aware that when the menu suggests that the vegetable sides are good for two, the portion is good for three. The butternut squash bisque was a real winner served at a proper temperature. The meal was made even better by a fantastic waiter who did not hover but anticipated our needs.

    I had heard great things about the Capitol Grill but had not had a chance to experience dinning. Selected the Miami Spice menu and was quite surprised at how great it was, portions were normal size and the quality and presentation of each dish excellent. The server was very attentive and helpful in picking out the choices in the menu. I had the Rib-eye and my friend the Salmon, he raved it was the best he had, and my Rib-eye was cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend the Capitol Grill for any special occasion.

    We always head to the Capital Grille in Miami for our special occasions. The service is outstanding from the personable valet to the maitre'd and server. We have never been disappointed in either the service or food quality. The steaks were cooked perfectly, the crock of french onion soup was huge and delicious, the mashed red bliss pottoes were rich and creamy, and the flourless chocolate cake and cheesecake with berries were both terrific.

    My wife and I went to The Capital Grille for Miami Spice and our experience was just ok. The service was refined however, the food was lacking. The best part of our meal were the cesar salad, clam chowder and the cheesecake. My wife asked for a med well filet and got a burnt hockey puck; my bone-in sirloin was underwhelming to say the least, I've had better steaks at longhorn. Over all this is a great location with very good service but poor food. We won't be going back.

    We had heard amazing things about this place so we decided to try it out and soon after we got there we regretted ever single second of that decision. The place was packed, people just standing around the front blocking the hostess so we couldn't get in - not really any where else to go wait to be called. The service was terrible, our waiter was nice, but the service or lack thereof was NOT - hubby asked for a sprite no one brought it out for over an hour. It was our first time there and no one bothered to give us a rundown of the menu, when our food arrived we didn't have steak knives so we had to cut our food with butter knives *not easy* - the side order we got was so small my husband didn't eat any - he only ate his steak w/ shrimp. :(

    I decided to take my husband to Capital Grille as I had been to the one in Stamford, CT and loved it. Our waiter Janos was very friendly and just the right mix of attentive and not overbearing. He helped us choose a great bottle of Moscato to go with our meal. The plus for me was the Miami Spice deal that made dinner an amazing deal. Would highly recommend and I look forward to going back and trying other dishes.
