    My wife and I went for our anniversary. I indicated on the on-line reservation that it was our anniversary. They put red hearts on the table so every worker knows it's our anniversary. The manger and several staff stopped to wish us happy anniversary. Our waiter (Eddy) was the best server I've ever met. His personality was the perfect mix of friendly but didn't linger and chat. He was attentive to every need we never had to ask. I had the Sirloin it was truly delicious. It melted in my mouth, it was cooked perfectly. Eddy recommended the lobster mac and cheese he was correct it is wonderful. Eddy brought us a complementary dessert tray with Happy Anniversary written on the dish. A wonderful dinner experience.

    If you are looking for great food with impeccable service you've found it. The prosciutto wrapped mozzarella with tomatoes is amazingly good. Our steaks were cooked to perfection. The waiter was friendly and provided great service without being intrusive.

    The only thing that was not perfect about our dinner was that the food was tremendously over salted. A shame because we felt really lousy afterwards. Everything else was fabulous. Great Martinis, excellent wine by the glass choices, wide range of menu options, and the service was superb. This meal was a birthday celebration for my husband. It was great to see the table decorated with confetti for the occasion, and complimentary dessert was great. Generally not a fan of this style of everything ala carte kind of restaurant. I mean, for a $44.00 steak you can't put a little veg on the plate, you have to spend $20.00 more to get some potato and asparagus? This place is very good at what it does. Next time will say NO SALT PLEASE!

    This was our first visit to the Capital Grill. It is good for an occasional special night. Not a romantic place and the noise was high, so I would recommend another place for an anniversary dinner. My lobster was outstanding but my husband's steak was good but not the best that he has had. Oysters on the half shell - excellent. Service was great. Extensive wine list and the prices were fair. Basing this on the price we pay for the bottle through our wine club. Not a very impressive dessert menu. We go out of our way to return to the Gaylord Texan Steak House restaurant just for its soufflé and the by comparison the dinner for two was more at Capital Grill then for three at the other restaurant.

    The service was awesome. We were celebrating our anniversary and they really took care of us. My wife really enjoyed her steak. My steak was cooked just the way I like however was disappointed on the flavor. Vegetables were good but the corn did not have bacon taste but the creamed spinach was solid. Overall real close to a 5 star rating if steak had just a little more flavor.

    My wife took me to Capital Grill to celebrate my birthday. I have dined at top spots in many cities, and found this to be in top 5, ever! The food, filet for me, tuna for wife was almost perfect, but the service and attention to detail was superb. The birthday desert was very well executed. From valet to valet, one of our top dining experiences ever, and easily the best in Dallas.

    My wife and I went for her birthday, and they went out of their way to make sure it was special for her. Every person that spoke to us started out by greeting her with a "Happy Birthday", they delivered a rose to the table - along with some birthday confetti, plus gave us a complimentary birthday dessert. Even the chef came out to with her a Happy Birthday. As always, the food was great! From the lobster bisque to the salad, to the lobster mac, to the steak - everything was cooked to perfection. Highly recommend for almost any occasion, has never disappointed and we've been several times.

    My wife and I recently celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary at the restaurant. The evening was great from beginning to end. They put us in an area of the restaurant where we could really enjoy our time together. It allowed us to reflect back over our years of marriage. The waiter was great and helped to make the dinner very special. He was attentive and made sure we were having a great evening. The champagne...The wine...The steaks...The deserts - All great. I can't wait to come back for our 27th anniversary.

    We were disappointed in the food. The steaks were overcooked and had no flavor, and the texture was similar to a generic grocery store steak. The roasted potatoes seemed more boiled or steamed than roasted. The cocktails were not up to par as well. Very good wine by the glass and the roasted asparagus was good. Service was good. Overall, they need to step it up in a city full of steakhouses. Especially at this price point. We won't be returning anytime soon, sorry to say.

    Went to the location at the Shops of Legacy. Many great dining choices in this area, and we chose Capital Grille for our 14 year anniversary. We shared the Halibut, and a side dish of mushrooms. Veggie-style salad for her and caesar salad for me. 2 beers and one cocktail. Total bill was 110.00. I think it was a bit overpriced for what it was. The food was good but not great. Service was a tad slow, but pleasant. Would probably skip this one in the future. Too many other choices in the area.

    We were there for almost 2 hours. Yet it did not seem that long. I my opinion everything was timed just right that we did not get the feeling that we were waiting forever. Wait staff was great and dinner was excellent. We were there for our anniversary and received complimentary champagne and a special dessert, nice touch. This was our first time here and as far as price it compared to other restaurants along this line, it was well within my expectations. As I mentioned this was my first time here and will not be my last.

    Capital Grille is always a treat. The food and service are excellent. Eddie was our waiter and was very attentive. We also met the manager who was very nice and chated with us for a bit. The generous pour during the months of July & August are a must for those that enjoy a glass of wine. I can never eat everything that's why I was disappointed when our waiter did not put those tasty truffle fries I couldn't eat in my doggie bag but besides that everything was great.

    2 annual events in Dallas are worth noting...Restaurant Week and Capital Grille's Generous Pour...and given the fact that they overlap each year means a synergistic experience. Restaurant Week is extended by many venues (TCG runs for 3 weeks) and the Generous Pour runs from early July to August 31st. We squeezed in a dinner this past weekend and it was spectacular...seated with our favorite - Julie K and savoring the excellent wine choices for this year's Generous Pour. Chef Aaron stopped by to visit. Can't say enough about The Capital Grille, we're so glad it's so close to home. It's our Go To place!

    For the past 3 years a group of us. usually 3 or 4 couples get together for the DFW Restaurant Review. This year we picked your restaurant. We do this to try out the better restaurants at a reasonable price to determine if we will go back again for the occasional fine dining experience. Overwhelmingly our group voted your restaurant was the best one we have been to so far. Let me first start with our server Ryan Shanahan - he was excellent - service was great - he answered all our questions. All of the food was outstanding thru the 3 courses. It is the best restaurant we have been to in a long time!!

    My husband and I went for restaurant week just to give it a try and see if this is somewhere we will be returning. It's very loud and it was mostly business men in large groups. The food was just average. Steak was good but it's just as good as Salt Grass but half the price. Basic mashed potatoes and the green beans were undercooked as if they were raw almost. I also ordered a kebob of grilled shrimp and that was average as well and I had to ask for more herb butter for flavor. Service was ok. The waitress was very friendly. Not a place for romantic dinners. We won't be coming back. Too many other upscale places with better food and service.

    I am more of a light eater and prefer salads and vegetables for meals in lieu of large heavy ones. Was challenged to find something that I wanted because they had limited vegetarian offerings but they did have about 4-5 salads. The waiter was nice and allowed me to switch up some things and get me something off the menu. Beautiful decor. No separate lunch menu noted. I think they only have the one menu.
