Diner Reviews
  • "Every time I get the opportunity to visit this place I always leave happy. Thank you for the great service, food and environment..."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Not as good as previous Restaurant Week experiences. Portions seemed smaller, dessert was definitely tiny compared to past visits."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "A classy steakhouse that is not trying to push the envelope in culinary experimentation - just the ideal place for my husband. Steaks are always cooked to one's preferred doneness. Expensive and high quality. Caesar salad is generous and prepared properly - no stale croutons. Clam chowder also a good starter choice. Only complaint is the 7 tasting wine offer cannot be shared. Why not? We're not expecting 14 glasses - just the 7 we can both sip and enjoy."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Best steak and service in town. Always our go-to place for special occasions or whenever we want a good steak. Their Generous Pour wine tasting was great."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Ambiance and food were spectacular. Went for restaurant week and had steak, a field greens salad and chocolate cake for dessert. Was delicious and service was outstanding. My first visit but can't wait to return. Thanks Capital Grille for a wonderful dining experience."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Great value for Restaurant Week - two 14oz dry aged sirloin steaks, grilled asparagus with lemon, Sam's potatoes, and two desserts satisfied. The generous pour wine deal offers a sampling of up to 7 great wines at a steal for $25."

  • "This was by far the best steak I've ever had. Restaurant week was a great opportunity to try this amazing restaurant. Capital Grille did not dissapoint."

  • "My parents were visiting. We had the restaurant week menu with the generous pour wine tasting. The food, service and wine were outstanding. We will definitely return for special occasions."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Its amazing that this is a Darden Restaurant when they also own Red Lobster and Olive Garden (gag). The first time I went to Capital Grille I was concerned that it might just be an overpriced chain. Wow was I wrong. The food is outstanding and service is always great. If you have a special occasion you cant go wrong with Capital Grille"

  • "Hands down - best $30 restaurant deal! The steak was phenomenal and the lobster bisque was amazing. Lauren made us feel special and was attentive without being overbearing. My only complaint about this night was - it was freezing in that room! We were in a little nook of the restaurant and I felt terrible for Lauren since I noticed that a lot of people asked to be seated elsewhere because of the cold. Hopefully the poor girl has another section besides that corner."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Excellent food and service as always;our favorite high end Twin City restaurant for steaks. Very clean facility. Only negative: $14 for a basic cocktail served in a small glass with cheap cherries seems excessive (for example, our favorite US high end restaurant, Mr B's in New Orleans, charges $8 for the same drinks)."

  • "After discovering The Capital Grille a few years back, we now always celebrate our anniversary there. Once again, we were more than pleased with our evening. Our waiter was personable and attentive. He gave us great backgrounds on the wines we sampled from the Generous Pour event. Our steaks, filet and kona-crusted strip, were outstanding!"

  • "I love Capital Grille. We came in for a girls night and restaurant week. The service and food are always superb!! You always feel taken care of and the service is seamless. They have complimentary valet and somone on the staff took care of getting are cars pulled up for us - it was really hot out! My steak was AMAZING and it melt in my mouth! I got the kona rub and it was a perfect compliment to my steak. I can't wait to come back soon! Also, a couple next to us was celebrating their anniversary and Capital Grille took the time to decorate their table with rose pedals - we thought that was so sweet and a nice touch!"

  • "Loved the calamari as always but also really enjoyed the lobster bites ap. Steaks were perfectly prepared too! Waitress Lauren was fabulous."

  • "Our vehicle was greeted with curb side enthusiasm. The host selected a nice table with a view of the street to help occupy those quite times. Our server, Lauren could not have exemplified the "Minnesota Nice" description more. She could have made a lousy meal taste special. The steaks and side took my taste buds to heaven. The cheese cake, suggested by Lauren, met the bar, set by the main meal. The size of the main meal left room for desert. A take home reminder of the steak that again hit the mark. I would return in a New York minute."

Dessert was on the house! We will return, when next in Minneapolis, and plan to try the one in Charlotte as well."

  • "We enjoyed our experience from beginning to end. Upon entering we were greeted as welcome guests. Our table for two was in the corner, excellent location. Our server, Jeff Iblings, was attentive, knowledgeable and helpful-couldn't ask for better-a real pro. Ah, the food-the best french onion soup I've ever had. The steaks tender, made just as we ordered and superb in taste. The sides we tasty and plentiful and the desserts-divine. We look forward to another visit."

  • "Awesome time when my girlfriend and I celebrated dating 3 years. Out server Nicole was awesome and they went above and behind when all I let them know was that we're celebrating out 3 year when I booked the reservation. We had complimentary champagne, appetizer and an awesome desert on the house. I'm a goofy guy and fancy places like that aren't my thing usually but it was. Great experiment and well worth the $$$."

  • "Celebrated our 25th Anniversary and could not ask for a better night out. We appreciated all the complimentary extras such as rose at the table, glass of champagne, truffles, bruschetta cream cheese sample, and mini espressos with rock sugar swizzle sticks. Food was excellent and we brought home leftovers. The prosciutto wrapped mozzarella is not to be missed! Filet mignon very tender; almost don't need a knife. Server was gracious and attentive. Can't go wrong here; definitely a great special occasion spot!"

  • "The Grille is our favorite for a pre-show supper. We like the "wine room" because it's quiet and cozy. Our meals at the Grille have never disappointed. We love to start things off with the tempura battered lobster tails and spicy ancho sauce. Salads are fresh and creative - this time we tried the seared peaches over greens and topped with caramelized nuts. Fabulous! The entrees we chose were beautifully presented and flavorful. We skipped dessert and went straight to cappuccino."

  • "We were celebrating our 14th wedding anniversary. I requested a seat by a window. That happened, and more. We were greeted when we arrived and congratulated. A complimentary glass of champagne and desert was offered. Our server was very knowledgeable of the menu, very accommodating, and obviously enjoyed her job. THE FOOD WAS TO DIE FOR!!! We can't wait to come back."
