    This is a regular dining spot for our group of 6 foodies. We keep coming back because it is always perfect, and we like that! Even though it is a chain, you forget that during dinner. We started with a lost reservation. Finally after a bit we were found and seated. OK. So began a dinner served with fits and starts and a constant stream of "I'm sorry" from our server. None of us really believed that she was after a while. Soup came cold. Eventually that was noticed and replaced. Came warm this time, I just ate it. Dinners were almost flung at us. All the sides(4) were cold. Steaks all undercooked for everyone. Now we could have said something, but send everything back? We all agreed at end of the meal to move on to others pastures.

    What a steak house should be. I had the porcini rubbed delmonico which was perfect. My wife had the bone-in filet, which made me regret my order! Chef accommodated us by letting us special order chocolate souffles for dessert. Most importantly, the service is impeccable. There when you want them, away when you don't. Our server made excellent suggestions with no hint of pretense.

    We got to the Capital Grille just in time to enjoy the wine package, and we really made out! We had the sesame encrusted tuna, the red snapper special and the Delmonico steak which were all very tasty, but the strip steak was a huge disappointment. It was tasteless and overdone and the tomato mozzarella salad was forgettable. Our server was fabulous and we had a great time and will be back.

    My son and I went to try this place out. I had the filet, Kona encrusted. It was very good and cooked perfectly (rare). My son had the porcini rubbed delmonico, which was also cooked perfectly (rare) and was AMAZING! I loved the kona rub, but the porcini was even better! The lobster mac and cheese was very yummy, although a very mild cheese. The wedge salad was good. The roasted wild mushrooms were also very good. We did not have room for dessert. Our waitress let us know that you could put any rub on any steak, which is how I ended up with a kona encrusted filet. I wanted to try the kona, but wanted a filet too. I was very glad she let us know!

    This is the first time in years that we have had a bad experience at this restaurant. When we first arrived the male host was quite obnoxious and interrupted the hostess in the middle of speaking to us. Salad was drenched with dressing, it was replaced...so ok. Food came and was barely warm but we did not send it back. I ordered seared tenderloin with lobster and one of the tenderloins tasted like liver...when we ordered more wine, the waitress brought back water which we did not order and after I said we ordered wine, she said she thought we nodded when asked about more water. On the positive side the waitress was really the best we have had there, and except for her bringing the extra Fiji water I do not have any complaints about her.

    My recent lunch at Capital Grille was wonderful. The food was very good. The dark wood and white table cloths gave an atmosphere of a dated men's club. I felt like my waiter was over-extended, not really having tiime for my sisters and me.

    We were seated after a short wait. Drinks were offered. Both R.W.menu and regular menu were offered. Caesar salad was okay. Clam chowder was okay. We both had bone in strip sirloin steak. Mine came too well done and was replaced by one cooked perfectly. I did not find my steak very flavorful, my husband like his. Sams mashed potatoes were delicious, but small portion. Green beans were fine. Bread basket was good with delicious hot rolls. Cheesecake for dessert was good. It was a decent meal, but I think the food is better not during R.W. and the portions are larger. I will return, and would recommend C.G. Water glasses were kept full, and iced tea replaced often. All in all, a good, not great, experience.

    My wife and I were dining to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. We were very impressed that they had decorated the table with rose petals and confetti along with a note card congratulating us on the occasion. Our server, Karen Kennedy provided excellent service throughout our meal. When my wife's steak was served to rare for her taste, Karen promptly had the steak corrected and returned with additional sides and a complimentary bottle of Moet & Chandon. The manager visited our table to ensure we were satisfied. We were not complaining at all and they were very gracious to make sure we had a great evening.

    The atmosphere, food and service were all perfect! Our waiter Moe made the experience very special. The filet was wonderful and cooked perfectly. The clam chowder and salads were great. The Generous Pour wine event is something that we come back for every time it is offered - it is a great way to try many different wines and we loved 90% of them. Try to save a little room for the flour less chocolate cake - it melts in your mouth and tastes great!

    My food was good. Unfortunately my wife had a bad experience as her filet mignon was undercooked initially and the Chef failed to correct it after two more tries. The manager did step up however by giving my wife a second filet and taking the cost of the first one off the bill. Her second one was much better. Our waiter Tony was exceptional. A jewel.

    I went to C.G. with two girlfriends to celebrate my birthday. The table had rose petals on it, as well as glitter type pieces that said Happy Birthday etc. I have had dinner there many times over the years, and in Boston and Boca Raton . The services is generally quite good..When you sit down they ask for drink orders and bring ice water and delicious hot rolls that are worth eating. I had the lobster bisque which I've had many times before. It was delicious, but quite expensive, something like $10 or $12, for small cup. I don't remember the price being so high, but it was delicious.I had arugla salad with twin 4 oz. filets, go back medium rare as ordered. They brought a complimentary dessert it was good. I would return & recommend to all

    We were so impressed by our server. She was friendly and knowledgable. She was there to please us!! The food was served promptly and everything was delicious and piping hot. The steaks were cooked perfectly and the side dishes were all amazing!! We even had leftovers. There were 7 of us and we sat at a round table which is the only way to chat with everyone!! Capital Grille really blows away all the other steakhouses. It's pricy but worth it.

    'Once upon a time', years ago, we felt that the Capital Grille was rather 'full of itself', too trendy, and way too expensive. Today I can happily say it is one of my wife's and my favorite spots for dinner. The service is impeccable and friendly and the food is consistently excellent. Side portions are huge, and designed for sharing... enough for four people. I love that I can request a different pairing with main courses, easily accommodating special diets or wishes. In warmer weather, eating is available for outdoors. The Grille's dining room is a beautifully appointed environment, designed for intimate dining while surrounded by original paintings of Detroit's historical automotive icons.

Then we ordered the delmonico (t-bone) which was delicious. I thought the sides (creamed spinach and Au gratin potatoes) were standard. Beautiful experience!

    If you are looking for a restaurant that continues to defy expectations, then look no further than the Capital Grille. Each and every time we dine, it is a memorable experience. The food is consistently top shelf. The bartenders go that "extra" mile with the pours. But their service is what truly makes them distinct from the other steak establishments in town. You would be hard pressed to find a friendlier host than Joey. His knowledge of the wine list and professionalism is extraordinary. Same said about Ryan on the waitstaff. He goes the extra mile each and every time you dine. He has our orders memorized, drinks are brought out as we settle in. Truly the most professional waiter in Detroit. Great managers in establishment too.

    Celebrated a wedding anniversary this evening. When we arrived, the table had been decorated with romantic graffiti and a special note from The Capital Grille. The food, again, was excellent. I gave it a 4-star rating because the cook had a difficult time getting my steak to medium rare. Graciously, because of the difficulty with my steak, the restaurant comped my steak and added a second steak for take-home.
