  • "We had a guest that wished to discuss some business and we had the perfect, quiet table for such a meeting and meal. Danielle was professional and efficient as always, totally unobtrusive as she timed the dishes so that the meal did not interrupt the business discussion. The special surf and turf was incredibly tasty and filling, as was the wonderful dessert which my husband loves so much - the flourless chocolate cappuccino cake - what a delight to see him enjoy this treat! As always, The Capital Grille performed as perfectly as always, and as always, will have us as loyal customers. Thank you for being here and for your talented staff."

  • "We were all from out of town and decided to meet at Capital Grille for dinner. We were seated immediately at our reserved time. We were given appropriate time by the wait staff to talk before we preserved our entrees. Wine selection was outstanding. The dry run steaks were cooked perfectly. I had the halibut which was thick but flakey. Would go back."

  • "Made our reservation on Open Table's app for my best friends birthday and in the comment section I mentioned we'd be celebrating her birthday. When we arrived we were escorted to our table. They had the table decorated with confetti, a rose, and a birthday card for Catie. We also were given a complimentary champagne tost and desert for the birthday girl, which we all shared. To top off our experience the wait staff was amazing!!"

  • "I have eaten here before and it was excellent, but not so today. The well done meat was burnt - that is more than well done. It was barely edible. The plate was delivered to another table first and then the person who brought it from the kitchen did not understand why I saw that as a problem. I felt that he should have taken it back."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "The food and drinks are always great. Service is attentive without being interruptive. Shaun our waiter was great too."

  • "The Capitol Grill was fantastic. Food, dessert and service were impeccable!!! Very romantic and historic atmosphere. Everyone needs to experience this restaurant at least once."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Our wine choice was great as were the salads. The bone-in fillet was underdone, went back to the kitchen and came out overdone. The other fillet was medium; slightly overdone for medium-rare. We have been to this Capital Grill before and know it can be great. The Manager took the entrees off the bill - which was appreciated. We will go back again when traveling through TPA."

  • "One thing we can always count on is a wonderful dining experience at The Capital Grille in Tampa. Service is always attentive and professional - but friendly and warm, as well. The food has always been perfectly prepared and this time was no different - perhaps that is why it is one of our favorite places: dependable fine dining. The chicken confit was beautifully prepared and with the potatoes and wine, we felt as if we were in Paris. The shrimp cocktail showcased gigantic and perfectly cooked shellfish, and the ending . . . oh, what an ending! I love the flourless chocolate espresso cake - all in all, a perfect, quiet, romantic dinner to start the week. Highly recommended restaurant."

  • "We have dined at Capital Grill many times over the years. It never disappoints. The appetizer selection is broad, as is the entree menu. Our steak and lamb was grilled perfectly. The wait staff is always attentive but not intrusive. We love Capital Grill because we can always expect a wonderful meal with excellent service."

  • "Every two to three months my three buddies and I have "Boys Night Out". Invariably it always is at the Capital Grille. One of my buddies loves the Grand Plateau as an appetizer which is really great and plenty enough for four people. Another friend orders the Parmesan Truffle Fries, I order either the Clam Chowder or the Lobster Bisque (best in town!). For entrees we usually order at least one three pound lobster and fish and or beef. One of my friends always orders the Delmonico Steak. It is the only steak he eats! I have been to all restaurants in Tampa that serve lobster. Yours is the best in town! Your food mixed drinks are very good! The four of us are always looking forward to "boys Night Out" at the Capital Grille. ;-)"

  • "Steaks were not as good as have had previously there. Filet last time was so good melted in mouth, not this time. Husband ordered medium well, more on well side and came out rare. Fries were excellent"

  • "We have always liked the Capital Grille, but they have recently expanded their menu and it is an improvement. This is one of our favorite places,"

  • "We had my welcome home dinner here after a long road trip and was not disappointed - surprise! I have never been disappointed here and having Danielle as our efficient and friendly waitress is always a treat. The bone-in filet was scrumptious, as were the potatoes, the wine and to finish: the most delicate flourless chocolate cake anywhere! A wonderful place to celebrate every day - no need for a "special" occassion - here, they are all special."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Compared to nearby restaurants in a similar price range (very expensive), this will not be one I recommend in the future. The menu is quite limited and the portions are huge. I suppose if I were dining with a friend and could split an entree it might work, but that was not my situation this time. For the price, I felt the service was not particularly attentive. And the restaurant is dimly-lit with closed blinds, so pretty much feels like a steak house. That said, though, the halibut I ordered was quite well-prepared, but of course I could not finish it."

  • "Dined on Mother's Day and the experience was excellent. We had requested a booth on the reservation and were accommodated. Server was very attentive and helpful. One of the steaks ordered was grilled too rare to our liking. The server quickly returned it to the kitchen and it was brought back out to our table cooked perfectly! Great place for a delicious steak!"

  • "I planned a last minute surprise dinner for my spouse on a Wednesday night. I was able to get a reservation for 730 but at 645 knew we were going to be late so I called to push the reservation back and they were very accommodating. I had mentioned in my opentable reservation comment section that it was our anniversary and when I called they acknowledged that fact and that they had picked out a secluded booth for us. When we arrived the hostess told us congratulations, we were seated at a table that had a card, red rose, and heart shaped confetti. We were brought a complimentary glass of champagne. The dinner was fabulous and was topped off with complimentary dessert and coffee. Our special night was made more special by the staff. "
