    My friend and I dined there for his birthday dinner on Wednesday, November 26th. I was impressed the minute we walked in. The host staff graciously took our coats and seated us promptly in one of the best tables in the restaurant (at least we thought so). Being someone who has been in the restaurant/service industry for the last 14 years, I certainly pay attention to service standards. Ronny, our server, gave the best service I have ever received in my life! He was friendly and attentive while also being very down to earth. We chatted with him about various things throughout the night...he truly made our experience memorable. The food was perfect...temperature, taste, presentation! Thank you!

    The Capital Grille is always my choice of restaurant chain to entertain clients or to conduct a meeting followed by diner. I have never had a client be disappointed. For me, no matter what Capital Grille I am eating or entertaining, I can easily recommend dinner choices or drinks as the menu is the same from area to area. Great Restaurant.

    Capital Grille knows how to do the "little things." When I made the reservation I told them it was our anniversary, when the hostess sat us we found rose petals on the table, the server took a complimentary picture of us (that was then given to us at the end of dinner, and we received a complimentary dessert. I had no idea all this was coming our way when I let them know it was a special occasion!

    It was great to be able have lunch at the Capital Grille during restaurant week and have good food with excellent service. We were thinking that the portions were going to be cut down because of the affordable price. We were wrong! The portions were more than satisfying. We would love to see these 'specials' more often. Having the experience of dining at the Capital Grille definitely puts it on the 'special occasion' restaurant list.

    The food is always excellent at the Capital Grill - we have never been disappointed. We were celebrating my husband's birthday. The hostess asked us if it was a special occasion and we mentioned his birthday. Our server then came to greet us and said "so I hear it's your birthday - welcome and happy birthday". He also brought us a complimentary piece of cake at the end of our meal. That was a very nice touch. We have a a special wine that we enjoy from their wine list (Rex Hill Pinot Noir - Jacob Hart Vinayard), which was out of stock, but he made a nice recommendation for a wine just above and just below it in price, as well as presenting the benefits of each. He was an great server and we had a great evening!

    We celebrated our daughter's commencement at the Capital Grill. We were a party of 4. We were seated once and asked to move to another table right after our cocktails were served. No problem...it was a better table. Then after finishing our dinners, we were asked to move again since they had a party of 16 coming in. Knowing that they were very crowded due to the commencement we agreed. We were moved to a booth and were compensated with dessert and coffee. A little unsettling, but all in all, a very nice experience. Excellent food.

    A knock your socks off winner! You were made to feel right at home in this upscale, classy,but not stuffy steakhouse. My husband had the porterhouse steak, and I had the filet. THE three sides we chose were fresh asparagus/ hollandaise, au gratin potatoes, and sauteeded medly of mushrooms. NO salads, no soups were needed. The wine was excellent. THE waitstaff knows their business as to the entree choices as well as wine pairings. When my filet came to me a bit too over cooked for medium rare, it was whisked away. TO my surprise,Waiter Ron and the CHEF both returned with a perfectly done filet. THE chef told me he cooked it for a shorter length of time, and at Capital Grille, they aim to please. Well, please they did. Perfect! We will return

    We arrived for our reservation and had to wait about 10 mins....not bad. The part that was not ok was they wanted to seat us at a table that was clearly too small for a party of 6. There was not enough room on that table for a bread basket in addition to the 6 dinner plates. We insisted on a larger table for which we had to wait 30 minutes more. Once we were seated, our service was superb and they went out of their way to make up for the poor beginning.

    I was in the mood for Tuna (yes, I know - I was at the Capital Grill, why do I want seafood?!?!) but the only tuna they had on the menu had sesame seeds and I love peppercorn encrusted tuna. The waiter said the chef could do it and he served a perfect peppercorn encrusted sashimi grade tuna steak with three custom sauces and ginger rice. It was delicious!! Of course my husband's Filet and stuffed shrimp was as good as always and the key lime pie (with pistachios) is to die for! Definitely a satisfying night out!!
