Diner Reviews
  • "Great Service and good dependable food quality, makes for an excellent dinning experience. We will make The Capital Grille a regular dining option monthly."

  • "Not what we expected...they do much better at the dinner hour. :("

  • "Sat down at 1:15p and didn't leave until 3:45p. And that's with a pre-set menu! Waiter was unattentive and clueless. Food came out piecemeal. And menu choices were very average. Oh, and it was expensive. Dissappointing experience to say the least. GM didn't know how to handle the Easter crowd."

  • "We had a WONDERFUL time at the Capital Grill. Got the seafood starter that was a selection of fresh seafood on ice including shrimp, oysters, two lobsters and fresh crab meat. The two of us enjoyed this with the wedge salad and a bottle of wine. Was more than enough for the two of us as our dinner. Staff was very attentive and friendly."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Food was excellent. Service was ok. When spending $400+ on a meal you just don't expect to wait for a scotch you ordered to be paired with a steak, pour your own wine and then not receive some of the sides you ordered. Anyway, he was a good guy and things happen so he still received greater than 20% tip and we did enjoy the dinner."

  • "The chef has the real "touch" when it comes to dressing up his salmon here! The glaze is just right, sweet enough to impart the flavor without being overbearing, and seasoned in much the same manner. It comes with beans and asparagus cut up and for a light healthy dish, you can't go wrong!"
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "Heather our wait staff was soo attentive to our needs ( coffee tea water drinks) and provided us with great recommendations on dessert and appetizer selections. They also decorated our table for a birthday lunch even though I didn't tell them about it when I made reservations. Very sweet"
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "Try the 10 Oz Filet, which is wet aged, and cooked to perfection! If you are a fan of filets, you will surely find this to be one of the best you have sampled in DFW!"
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "We had a very nice dining experience Saturday evening. The waiter was very nice and did not rush us, which was appreciated! He made sure we were taken care of and would check back with us if we needed anything else. The food was outstanding! We left very satisfied and happy. We will be back soon!!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The food was excellent, the waiter was wonderful, it was my sons 30th birthday, they decorated the table, had a champagne toast and a special dessert. We really enjoyed ourselves and plan to return to eat another wonderful meal."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "If you want to experience unparalleled service, you have not had it, till you dine here! Eddie and Stewart each creatively enhance the dining experience by their suggestions as to wine and desserts. Both of them will gladly check to see if the chef can create an off the menu item, if something out of the ordinary strikes your fancy. All in all, these two contribute in a meaningful way, to make this venue one of the top dining locations in North Texas!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "This is our favorite fine dining restaurant in the DFW metro. Everything is top notch, from the management and staff to the food and wine. Lunch, dinner or special occasion, this is the experience to share with family and friends."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "If you are in the mood for fish, it is hard to deviate from the always good grilled salmon! I had not ordered it in a while, and was reminded of why I used to get this great fish often. It is a fresh cold water salmon, grilled to perfection!"
    Dined on 4/8/2014
  • "Food and service were amazing. Highly recommend the Kona rubbed but with a ribeye vs sirloin. Absolutely amazing! What really capped the night for us was the high level of service provided by our server Arif. Thanks for everything...look forward to our next visit!"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Another great meal at Capital Grille. Our server, Pam, was great; completely attentive, gave us very good recommendations and even an extra bone to take home to our dogs. Only disappointment is that we didn't save enough room for the coconut cream pie which is the best anywhere!"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The last two times I have been here, my steaks were not cooked how I ordered them. The first time, it was undercooked and I actually had to send it back TWICE! This past Saturday night, I ordered my steak,, as usual, between medium rare and medium. What I got was nearly medium well. The tenderness and juice of the steak was cooked out of it. Unfortunately, we had another engagement and I didn't have time to send it back so I ate it. If I am going to pay this kind of money for a steak, I expect a good cut of meat and for it to be cooked as I want it! This has always been one of my favorite places to eat but I fear that it's slipping and that's very disappointing!."

  • "This place has good quality steaks, and the ambience is almost warm and inviting. The service is just ok though; there is an underlying current of arrogance from the staff there that is extremely annoying at times. At the end of the day, this place is a nothing more than a chain restaurant, albeit a high-end chain, with a decent wine list and good quality steaks - not great, not amazing, but good and dependable. You could confuse this place with Bob's - another chain - but I would say that Capital Grille does have a slight more energetic feel, otherwise they are near identical. As one would expect from an American chain restaurant, the sauces are heavy and overbearing so best to get those on the side."

  • "There were 4 women at our table. Two had never been to this wonderful spot before. Everyone was very happy with the food and service."
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "The chopped salad is not the type you see on a typical Dallas menu. It has artichoke hearts, corn, and other healthy ingredients, for a rare departure from the great steaks and seafood."
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "the best service and the best food in the greater Dallas area!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "The food,service, and ambience was perfect. If possible, ask to be seated in Michael Clayton's area. His service is attentive but not intrusive. He is extremely knowledgeable about both the menu and the wine list. Michael helped make an important evening into a memorable evening."

  • "Celebrated my daughters 18th Birthday, seated on time and staff was extremely helpful and attentaive to the special occassion."

  • "The steaks at the Capital Grille are cooked ot perfection, and melt in your mouth. A great place. The A/C system may send you packing though, so take a coat!"

  • "I hosted a business dinner here. The food was very good and the ambiance was excellent. The service was attentive without being overbearing. I would definitely come back again!"
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "This was our first time to dine at Capital Grille, Plano. The experience was good, however, should have been better. We were celebrating my husbands 60th birthday! Initially, we were introduced to several wait staff who were to be serving us. With all involved, I feel that the service was not quite up to standard. Our waiter, Harold, kept checking in, however, walked away several times forgetting what we had requested. Maybe he was overwhelmed...this is not good in a restaurant of this status! In comparison to Capital Grille Fort Worth and Houston which we have dined several times...this was not what we expected. I was disappointed...my husband appeared to enjoy himself. However, I know the eveing could have been much better."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Food could have been better for the price. No comparison to Rick's Chop house in Mckinney. Service is more available than Rick's, but if you want a good bone in ribeye (cowboy steak), then go to Rick's. Capital will not let you fown if you are entertaining guests."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "The chef here mixes up the sides on the recently available white salmon. The first side to go with this amazing fish was amazing fish, is a cherry compote which is to die for. Check it out!"
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "We enjoyed a great evening of cocktails and dinner. The food was excellent and the service was unmatched. As we wrapped up dinner and were ready to leave the waitress said, hold on we have a nice surprise for you. To celebrate our 30th anniversary they brought out a plate with a couple of deserts and champaign. This was unsolicited and made the evening very special. Wonderful night, wonderful food, and that special service that always makes an event or dinner over the top perfect."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "We were celebrating a birthday and asked for a table on the "patio". We were given a very nice table and had a mostly great experience. The food was delicious, I had the sole, one of our party had the lamb chops and one had the filet. All of it was prepared to our liking. I guess the only criticism was that our waiter seemed to be in a rush and was rushing our meal. Almost like get us fed, paid and out for the next customers."

  • "For an appetizer, and for all of you bacon lovers out there, you cannot miss the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella, which is cooked to perfection! It has an amazing flavor and is a great companion for any of the fine steaks on the menu!"

  • "This is our third visit to the C. G. in Plano. Our occasion was our 50th Anniversary. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. The service was excellent, Not only was our wait person attentive, so were all the others around our table. The food was recommended were a Delmonico steak and Salmon. What a wonderful combination. Cook to perfection. Excellent wine choice also. A great experience."

  • "Consistently the best service and steakhouse in plano."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Can't say enough about the Porcini Rubbed Delmonico or the Lobster Mac&Cheese. Service was excellent and they did a little something extra for my birthday. Always love eating here, and this time was no exception. Even my wife who always only eats half of her dinner finished most of her plate."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Capital Grill is a wonderful chain. This CG was also a lot of fun. I look forward to eating there again soon."

  • "Went for our anniversary, they really took care of us. Enjoyed the whole experience. Also made special vegetarian Pasta for my wife. Calamari great, steak amazing ..."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Once a week, is the normal routine to come and experience what is consistently the best food in DFW! On this visit, the service was outstanding, as always, but the kitchen was below slightly its typical superb standards, in overcooking an entree order of scallops, and the new bartender took several times to get a drink order right that is normally a "lay down". I will be back, for sure, and feel this was simply an off night for the chef, who is one of the best around!"
