    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.

    We like to go to the Capital Grille for special occasions for my group at work. The soup and appetizers are wonderful, and the salads, sandwiches and steaks are all delicious and perfectly cooked! Great lunch menu and the desserts are wonderful - a really great place - had dinner there on Tuesday, then big group at lunch on Thursday!

    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.

    This is the one place where you know you are always going to get quality food, with impeccable service and a lovely atmosphere. We took our family friend here for his 16th birthday and it turned out to be a family affair to remember. It was also his first time at a steak house so he was thrilled to have all that quality food. I recommend it to anyone looking for a night a great food and service.

    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.

  • Restaurant Week and Generous Pour
    TxDanVIP
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    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!!

Seriously...it was awesome! You could cut it with a knife! We even met the executive chef. Will definitely go back here.

    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.

    My husband and I were excited to celebrate his birthday. Capital Grille is our go-to restaurant for special occasions. Although, the server was very nice, I was disappointed to find out that she did not offer the restaurant week menu for us. It was until after we ordered that we heard the server at the table next to us mention to his guests about the special menu. We had to specifically request this menu and replace our orders.

    This was a fantastic experience with food and service that went beyond expectation. Went alone with young child and they treated him like a regular customer and were as attentive to us as a table as tables with adult diners. The meal was well paced for those that like a leisurly dinner. The food was perfectly cooked and very tasty. The one complaint is that my steak was a bit salty but my son's was fine. Overall, a place I would certainly go back to... maybe next time with adult company.

    For resturant week, instead of going to the Capital Grille downtown, we decided to go to Plano. The food was as good, but the service was not as good. The noise from the bar was distracting at times and it was hard to carry on a conversation with my tablemates. Overall the experience was okay, but when thinking about going to the Capital grille again, i will drive all the way to the Crescent.

    We went to Capitol Grille, Plano for Restaurant Week, and they wooed us with immediate seating, great service, delicious and plentiful food. Our waiter, Jeremy, was attentive, almost always there to refill our wines, but not "overbearing". When the Executive Chef, Arron stopped to chat, we knew we found ouer new "favorite" local restaurant. We have already agreed to call ahead for his "special" (Liver and onions).

    We were celebrating our anniversary once again at The Capital Grill. We love the ambiance and the steaks are the best. Our waiter, Brian, was outstanding! We were welcomed and made to feel special from the moment we walked in. Our table was decorated with small red hearts and my wife was presented with a long stemmed red rose. We were then served a complimentary glass of champaign while we were reviewing the menu. I would definitely recommend the "Generous Pour" wine event if it is still available.

    We went during restaurant week in Dallas. When we asked the waiter for the restaurant week menu, it went downhill. It was like he didn't want to serve us and rushed us thru the meal. We took our kids as a special back to school dinner and we still spent a lot. We bought other items off the regular menu and the food was great but the server ruined it for us! Guess we will go back to other places that have better service. Was a let down as a celebration for our kids.

    This was our second dining experience at The Capital Grille, and it was just as great as the initial experience. I really don't have any negative things to say about the restaurant, except for the parking; it's terrible. I don't like to do valet parking, so I had to park far away in the garage. That's the only thing that would keep my wife and I from regularly attending this exceptional restaurant.
