Diner Reviews
  • "Celebrated our 48th Anniversary and were treated soooo well. The staff was gracious and knowledgeable and couldn't have been more professional. Our dinner was wonderful - the meat tender and done just right. They have a great price fix menu. A bargain at $40 per person. A definite place to put on your list for a steakhouse treat."

  • "I arrived on time,my friend was late. They were very nice and flexible about being seated pass out reservation time. Dinner was phenomenal! We had the shrimp cocktail and lobster crab cakes. The shrimps were huge and fresh best shrimp cocktail I ever had. My lambchops were the best I ever had too! With the cherry chutney, I couldn't get enough of it. People say capital grille it pricey,but I really believe you get what you pay for here. I think everything is reasonably priced here. I want to bring my mom and then my coworkers here now!!"

  • "Our party of 4 was seated in a booth, quite comfortably. Our waiter was fabulous. We were not rushed at all. The food was second to none. Chilean sea bass was and steaks done to perfection. Dessert finale!"

  • "I went to this Capital Grille because it was closer to me but I have to say it it was not the same as the other Capital Grille's. The meat was over cooked and the Filet Mignon my partner asked for had fat. We also couln't eat the outside part of the meat because it tasted burned. I really hope it was just this time but sadly it didn't leave a good impression."

  • "Arrived early for a 6:30 reservation and told them we had an 8 o'clock curtain. Our check (including tax and tip) was close to $200 for a mediocre meal. Salad was ordinary, fish was good, no desert. We were surprised to see the sign about pre-theater on our way out. We were handed a regular menu and never told there was a pre-theater option."

  • "From start to finish, this place is first class! Friendly hosts & knowledgeable wait staff discreetly & expertly honored reservation requests. Cozy dark wood paneled booth, Pre-Theater Menu only & birthday candled dessert finale. The food was the best in traditional steakhouse fare & wonderfully prepared. Great wine list, too. Perfect timing of all four courses had us feeling pampered, not rushed. The entire evening was perfect thanks to a finely tuned staff!"

  • "We have dined here pre-theater many times. Always good- Food and service are consistently excellent. Very accommodating restaurant. Pre theater menu is terrific. (so is the regular menu- but if you are in time for the pre-theater it is a great value!). Wine list is extensive, with every price range."

  • "We were a party of seven...so not that big. We had two servers...but the service was slow, our food came out somewhat warm and espresso came out room temperature. This was my first experience at capital grille and believe it to be my last. I paid fifty dollars for a steak that based on the quality and presentation I could have easily gotten for half. I expected higher quality service and food very disappointed."

  • "We gave it a try based on very positive internet reviews. Our group of 9 (5 of us in the hotel and restaurant business) had a wonderful lunch celebrating my daughter's graduation. The menu and wine list were very fairly priced for the location and the food was excellent. The exceptional service we received drove the experience over the top! Also, for our group we had a private room with a large round table."
