    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.

    This is my 3rd time at the Capital Grill. Every time has been GREAT!! The good was delicious. We went for the Miami Spice deal. The choices were great. I had the 18 ounce bone in sirloin. Amazing!! The cheesecake dessert is the best I've ever had. I would recommend this restaurant to all my friends and family.

    Dined on 9/26/2014
    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.

    I've always been a fan of Ruth Chris, but after dining at The Capital Grille it surpass all expectations of a steak restaurant. I live in Ft. Lauderdale after moving from Atlanta which has very nice restaurants, but The Capital Grille was the best. I do love the Miami Spice deal which was a great opportunity to bring the locals in to experience dining at a affortable price. KUDOS to THE GRILLE

    Being a regular at The Capital Grille, this location disappointed me a lot in my last visit. They fail to enforce a dress code, i was celebrating a special occasion with the family and there was someone wearing shorts and a work out t-shirt in the table next to us. While being at the restaurant two other tables had people wearing baseball jerseys, shorts and sandals. This might be Miami, but i expect a dress code to the level of formality The Capital Grille should be, more so for dinner. Unlikely to return to this location.

    Went to Capital Grille for special occasion. Food was phenomenal. Service was phenomenal. Told them we had a birthday and they had a birthday card and decorations set up at the table without us asking. Great spot for a special occasion and if you feel that service and food quality should be part of your dining experience.

    The sign of any successful sustainable business is to recognize your long term loyal clients and not lose your way during temporary busy times that are generated by special short term events. Sadly, this is the case for this local culinary gem. Our server as always was outstanding, the food was great but getting a reservation and getting through the front desk is at best a challenge.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIP
    Dined on 9/9/2014
    This is probably the best deal for Miami Spice. The menu offered 3 courses; each course was full-size, whereas normally dishes are smaller portion for Miami Spice. The caesar salad was enough for two to share, and the Sirloin steak was definitely larger than 14oz. Each entree comes with a side of mashed potatoes and green beans. The desserts, both the cheesecake and chocolate cake, were rich and delicious-- a perfect way to end the meal. The wine selection was top notch, and portrayed using an iPad, which features allowed me to sort by the type of wine I was searching for quite easily. Our waiter was attentive and informative. The ambiance was relaxed and met my expectations of a top-notch steakhouse. I would certainly dine here again!

    From the drinks at the bar to the main course and dessert one word describes this experience ..... spectacular! This was a girls night on the town and we decided to go to Capital Grille for the Miami Spice. Even though we ordered from the miami spice menu we ended up ordering some side dishes from the regular menu as well. Some recommendations for this restaurant are the filet mignon with jumbo shrimp, lobster mac and cheese ( a must-have), and the cheesecake ( another must-have). Overall, you really can't go wrong with having this for a dinner option. All the food was cooked to perfection and the service was outstanding. Sorry I didn't take pictures but the food was so good I couldn't resist from inhaling it.

    The Miami Spice menu offers a great deal for diners; the $39 (+tax/tip) fixed price for 3 courses is less than what just the entree would cost on the regular menu, and the portions are the same. I also like the fact that they provide free (+tip) valet parking right in the building. The elegant clubroom decor and attentive service are also noteworthy.

    Nice ambiance and food is good, however, one of the filet mignons we ordered came more rare than medium, when the other was cooked to perfection, as requested (medium). We pointed it out, and the waiter and manager tried to make it right, but we did not want to wait and send plate back. The cheesecake was well worth it and made me forgive them for the error made on the filet and I have to say the bill was adjusted, and that was a very nice gesture by the management. Will definitely go back and try it again!
