    We went to Capital Grille to celebrate a new job and got our friends to tag along. We sat at table 48 next to the kitchen and really enjoyed the energy! Brent, our server, was attentive and enthusiastic. We enjoyed him very much and will ask for him directly the next time we come in. We also had a drive-by from the Chef, himself, who welcomed us to CG. The food, as always, was amazing. Great food, drinks, service, we'll be back sooner rather than later!

    This was our second visit to Capital Grille in Plano, and it was hit and miss this time, our 30th anniversary. The suggested wine wasn't good, then the waiter brought the wrong soup out. My husband's steak was returned to cook more; it returned looking the same, so back it went. It came back overcooked. Our waiter redeemed himself when a complimentary dessert appeared with "HAPPY ANNIVERSARY" written in chocolate......and nothing at all wrong with that and the coconut cream pie :)

  • This particular visit
    RTreview
    Dined on 11/11/2014
    This particular visit was not pleasant. I ordered steak and told our waiter that I want it medium rare. I also ordered from the lunch menu - Dry aged sirloin with chimichurri. #1 - I did not get my steak medium rare - it was almost well...i can tell that our waiter can tell it was not done right as waiters typically would ask "was your steak cooked like you preferred?" and he did not even check how was my food. #2 I did not get the Dry aged sirloin and got the regular Siloin steak with asparagus. I did not compain because it was a business meeting and we do not have enough time for drama or for them to redo my order. Very disappointing - this particular visit. Even my Director/Boss was not pleased.

    Unlike a lot of other restaurants, the Capital Grille provides you with a good sized portion for your money. To go along with that portion is excellent food quality, excellent service and a great atmosphere. It is pricey, but is a great experience and one that you will want to have again.

    The food is exceptional as it should be for the price this is a high-end restaurant dinner for three steaks and wine appetizers around $300. I wasn't surprised because I've been here several times and enjoyed every time. If your wallet can take the weight I recommend you going.

  • Great night for 50th birthday
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 11/7/2014
    10 of us went to celebrate DWs 50th birthday. Prices are in line with other high end steak houses. Private dining room with Andrea as our server was great as we could shut the doors on the otherwise noisy restaurant. Comprehensive wine list with pricing in most buckets. plenty in the mid and lower ranges as well as $$$$. Food was great. Steaks were cooked to order and executed perfectly, seafood as well. Sides are stated that they are for 3 people, but that is the truth if you don't like lots of sides. We ended up with 6 sides (including 2 lobster mac and cheese) and it was enough. BTW, when it says lobster, then mean lobster. The bisque has chunks of maine lobster in it as does the mac and cheese. Yum.

    Dined on 11/4/2014
    Dined for my wife's 50th birthday with a group of 6. Food and service was good. However, we discovered when we got home that the steak leftovers were not packaged or included in the bag. Granted, I don't live for leftovers. But, when you pay near $50 for a piece of steak you'd like to have the option to take it with you. I would have expected an easy step like this to not be missed. Not 5 star service.

    Dined early at 5 pm on Saturday and service was great, food was delicious and great wine menu. My husband enjoyed the French onion soup, and I started with the fresh Mozzerella & heirloom tomatoes. My husband also loved the special, duo filet mignon with lobster, and I had the scallops with mushroom risotto. Our server was Kat and she was very perfect. Greg came to our table to make sure we were enjoying our romantic dinner. Yes, it was primo!

    Excellent service! Eric was the very best waiter we've had in a very long time. It's important to us to have a waiter that knows the menu well, explains options and how he can custom create a menu. He checked on us repeatedly without being intrusive. We shared the porcini rubbed delmonico. Steak was nicely charred, cooked to perfection. We split side of the au gratin potatoes & brussel sprouts.Delish! Wine, Terra d Oro Zinfandel 2008 reasonably priced at $40 a bottle. bold with a nice chocolate finish. Dessert was the coconut cream pie ....out of this world yummy. The food was good and what you expect from a top steak house,the excellent service made it stand out!! See you soon Eric!

    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.

    Dined on 10/8/2014
    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.

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.

    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.
