    We went this past Saturday in a group of 6 and I sample the Miami spice menu. I had the filet mignon with mashed potatoes and green string beans. Come tell bland and tasteless. The strawberry cheesecake wad the only bright spot. The service however was top notch and flawless.

    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.

  • Great for Miami Spice
    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.

    Dined on 9/6/2014
    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!

    Food was amazing and well prepared but the service was flawed. From the unattentive bartender to the waiter who didn't even explain any of the wines to me that we're included in the generous pour. To make matters worse after we payed I asked for one more glass of wine and was denied. The waiter claimed generous pour was just one taste of each wine and that he wasn't allowed to give it to me (which according to the hostess was incorrect on the waiters end). I felt he just wanted us to leave. Not the way I was expecting to be treated at such a nice restaurant trying to celebrate a special occasion. The steak on the other hand was cooked to perfection and melted in my mouth! Not sure I will be back due to the service.

    The 14 oz bone in aged sirloin was terrific even well done which rare because most restaurants will either dry it out from over cooking and the cheesecake desert is a star all on its own and I'm not a cheesecake fan but it's a must try

    First time I write a review of any type...We went to celebrate our anniversary and decided to go with the Miami Spice menu based on previous reviews and just like mentioned by others, it was a great choice! Everything was delicious, from the Caesar salad to the steak and dessert...and the wine! Service was great and the special touch to have our table ready with hearts and a "happy anniversary" card, was the cocino on the cake. Definitely will be back to this restaurant!

    Other than the wait time, we arrived 30 mins earlier than our reservation, Hostess did advise we would be seated closer to reservation time. The food was excellent. Our server, Oliver, was very attentive & courteous. We choose from the Miami Spice menu, but we also ordered appeitzer. Prosciutto Wrapped Mozzarella with Vine Ripe Tomatoes. It was amazing. I had the green salad, PARMESAN & HERB MARINATED TOURNEDOS accompaniment: sam's mashed potatoes & FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE ESPRESSO CAKE for dessert. My Manfriend had BONE-IN DRY AGED SIRLOIN STEAK 14OZ with sam's mashed potatoes & french green beans with shallots and heirloom tomatoes. for dessert he had CHEESECAKE WITH FRESH SEASONAL BERRIES. Food was delish. We will be back soon

    Great place for lunch or dinner. The servers are very knowledgeable and the sommelier is excellent. The wine list is exceptional as is the food. I highly recommend the lobster/crab cakes and the bone-in sirloin au-poivre style. The Italian cheesecake is the best cheesecake I've ever tasted.
