Diner Reviews
  • "I came to the Capital Grille for my birthday and I was delighted by the dry-aged steak, and the wine selection. Excellent place to celebrate a special occasion."
    Dined on 8/26/2014
  • "Once again, the food preparation was uneven. Steak was overlooked. We had asked for medium rare plus and got fully medium and dry. Small steak for price. Ruth Chris is more consistent and a better experience. We had to ask the waiter at first if he was too busy to handle our table. He then became attentive and very nice. Not impressed with the kitchen at this Capital One."

  • "We always enjoy coming to the capital grill due to the outstanding food and great service. When we visited on Friday, August 22, we were disappointed in the service. As soon as we asked the waiter for menus from restaurant week, he then acted like he didn't want to serve us. Mind you it was extended an extra week and the reason why we didn't come during the first week was due to work and vacation. We felt rushed and the service lacked. Not friendly at all. Was disappointed and can only hope the service is better next time!"

  • "I was not blown away by our meal at The Capital Grille. What was once crafted to be a "dining experience" now just seems like slow service. The menu is not especially creative, and the interior is starting to look dated. I'm 42 years old and I felt like this is a place my parents would really appreciate for its basic offering and classic appearance... Until they got the check. $40+ for an average chunk of sea bass in tomato broth with no sides? I'll pay handsomely for wonderful food... This was good food (not great or excellent or memorable food) at top shelf prices. There are so many more interesting places to eat in Pittsburgh. I'm not sure why one would choose THIS place when you can find so much better just steps away. Sorry, CG."

  • "My husband and I always enjoy participating in restaurant week and were excited to see that Capital Grille was participating. The menu selections didn't disappoint and we opted to upgrade our selections for $10. Everything was fantastic and the server was very good. Would definitely go back!"

    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "I typically eat here for lunch and the food is outstanding! It is very cozy and romantic for an evening meal as well. It is a little expensive, but well worth the extra that you pay. The food is always presented so nicely. The staff is very attentive and professional. If you pass on a glass of wine from the extensive selection, then you must try a glass of their grapefruit soda!"

  • "Dined for the first time at The Capital Grille for an anniversary celebration. The staff was great in wishing us a happy anniversary from the hostess to the food service staff. The table was sprinkled with a little heart confetti and we were provided a complimentary glass of champagne. The staff also gave us a hand written card and voucher for a complimentary appetizer for a future visit. Very unexpected and a nice touch to make the night more special. Because it's restaurant week in Pittsburgh, a special menu was available, and was too good of a deal to pass up. We were both happy with our meals and the service throughout the meal was top notch. We will definitely return for a meal from the standard menu, which also looked great."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "We had a large bone-in sirloin and a citrus salmon. Both were prepared perfectly and tasted wonderful. Topped the evening off with a delicious flour less chocolate cake with raspberries. Service was great. Thoroughly enjoyed our special evening."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "Celebrated a friend's birthday during restaurant week and the meal and wait staff were fantastic! And really appreciated being given top notch service during restaurant week. Will definitely recommend for this year's holiday party."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "Our meal was outstanding. I had the porcini rubbed filet. For those who might not dine here frequently, they will prepare a steak with whatever kind of rub you want from other steaks on their menu. You just have to ask! Their prosciutto mozzerella appetizer is to die for! Horatio is the best waiter and takes very good care of us!"
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "Ate lunch from the pittsburgh restaurant week specials, but the choices were great. Loved my sirloin and tasted the grilled salmon. Excellent! Will go back another time to enjoy their food."

  • "My wife and I visited The Capital Grille in Pittsburgh for her birthday. Absolutely amazing! This is one of the best steakhouses that I have ever eaten at. I travel extensively for work and eaten at many top restaurants. We ordered calamari, lobster bisque, 24 oz porterhouse, 22 oz ribeye, and banana cream pie. Everything was outstanding. The dry aged USDA prime beef was of the highest quality. My wife and I both got the steaks Kona style (rubbed in coffee) with shallot butter. Wow! Capital Grille also had a wine event going for $25 you could get unlimited glasses of their 8 featured wines paired with each course. It is well worth the money I think we each had 7-8 glasses."

  • "From the time we sat down our waiter was very attentive and personable."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "I was fully prepared for the price of the menu as we had a gift card. However our meals were OK. My husband liked his lamb chops and I had steak and lobster that tasted like steak and lobster...no extra flavor to set it above any other steak or lobster. My husband loves cheese potatoes but theirs were too salty for him to even eat. The server graciously removed them from our bill which we didn't expect. Had soup, salad and dessert...everything was average with a high price tag."

  • "You expect the best and CG always delivers!! My personal favorite both in Pittsburgh and SW Florida."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "There is no way that you can make a reservation at the Capital Grille and not request Margie – SHE IS as PHENOMENAL as the FOOD‼ From the minute she greets you at your table – her professionalism and warmth is second to none! Now, on with the food – also, fabulous-O! From the warm spinach salad to the salmon and scallops (sides wonderful, also) – and finishing up with cheesecake and flourless chocolate cake – YUMMY! (Oh by the way, you must visit Mike and Renee at the bar before dinner – another two of the Capital Grille’s best!)"
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "What a fabulous day...our 28th wedding anniversary was on the Saturday we visited and were just tickled to death by the special attention given to us! So many special touches...champagne, photo... The Capital Grille made our special day even more special then we could've imagined - I highly recommend it for special occasions."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "From the moment you walk in the door, you are well taken care of. My husband us a carnivore-meat and potatoes kind of guy; I'm a fish and salad girl. We both always enjoy the food and exemplary service. Great wine list, too. It's one of our favorites."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Unfortunately, the street workers decided to start jackhammering the street outside late Friday night. Still, it did not affect the dinner at all. The staff is very knowledgeable, friendly, hospitable, and truly enjoy their work. Every ounce of food they give you is excellent. The various breads they bring out at the start are all very good. The french onion soup was very tasty and more than plentiful if ordering the crock size. For dinner, I had the filet mignon. It was cooked a perfect rare and the truffle fries side was delectable. To finish, they brought out an extremely tasty creme brulee. Overall, its a great restaurant that is worth the price in every way. Thank you."

  • "I can't say enough good things about the Capital Grille. Everything was perfect. I had the Kona rub porterhouse, and my husband had the Delmonico. Both were cooked perfectly and delicious. We also had the crab bisque, lobster mac and cheese and creamed corn. Our waiter, Bruce, was wonderful. He could not have been more attentive. He gave great recommendations and was extremely knowledgable about the wine list. We go there every year for our anniversary and will continue to return. It's very pricey but a great place for a special occasion!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The food is always good but never great. Too pricey. The "Generous Pour" is pretty average. The wines are not very special."
    Dined on 7/19/2014

We had Salmon and Steak which were great! The sharing side dish worked very well as dud the Salad options. Definitely plan to go back again!"

The food (Calamari, Filet Oscar, Delmonico, Lobster Mac and Cheesed, French Beans) was delicious! Perfectly prepared, perfectly seasoned, perfectly presented. Like I said, it was a perfect night. Our waiter, J, was attentive and provided top-notch service throughout the evening. We are looking forward to our next trip to Pittsburgh so we can return to the Capital Grille."
