My husband and I went there for our anniversary. We had a great time. The service was great, the wine was delicious, and the food was was very good. The only small complaint would be they overdid my steak a bit. Other than that, everything was wonderful!

We were disappointed in the experience this time....but this is very unusual. This is one of our favorite restaurants but on this occasion the service was less than attentive, of the 5 steaks ordered, one was way over-done. We will return, as we believe this may be a post-shutdown issue.... fingers crossed for our usual amazing experience next visit.

The service was excellent, as usual. We were seated promptly.
Our reservation was for 5:30, but we were able to get a table at 5. There was a little wait for the bread, but well worth it for It to be warm and fresh .
I recommend avoiding the sangria (red) and sticking with a Riesling.
I had Woodford and Diet Coke. There was something a bit off....no fizz to the Diet Coke, but maybe more bourbon than one shot. I dunno. We’ve had them there before and the balance was better. No way am I sending a Woodford back, though.
Appetizers were very fresh, hot and tasty. My girlfriend said the onion soup was the best she ever had. The prosciutto-wrapped mozzarella was good, but may be better with bacon and then fried.
The steaks were amazing. I had the porcini rubbed rib eye. It was fork-tender, the rub crusted and done to a medium rare perfection. I am hard to please with steak. If you typically eat low carb, you will notice the sugar in the rub. If you take insulin, dose for this.
My BFF has the bone-in aged strip. She said it, too, was very good and tender.
Both steaks were substantial in size and we took the leftovers home where they fed 3 people for each steak.
The mashed potatoes were phenomenal. I only had a spoonful and remember it was impressive.
I did not try the green beans.
The creamed spinach was also very good with flavors of nutmeg, I THINK some cloves, pepper and garlic.
Coffee with heavy cream was very good. No Folgers here, nor the usual food service delivery coffee.
I can’t wait to go back. This was the first time out to dinner in a long time. Usually I follow very low carb. This time I ate the bread. And tried the potatoes.
Next time I will request something other than bread—-cucumber chips or cauliflower of green beans with some ranch to keep it low carb and keep my blood sugar from spiking. It went well this time, but only by taking a good dose of insulin...about 4 times what I typically take. $123 with t

Went during Cincinnati restaurant week. Always look forward to this because of the great deal that the Capital Grill always offers. I had wonderful lobster bisque followed by a perfectly cooked and very tasty filet mignon. Desert was the expresso flourless chocolate cake. The staff was very warm and welcoming. A great evening!

Nothing short of perfection! Our meal was absolutely outstanding. It was rivaled only by our service. Arek was attentive, knowledgable and extremely charming.
By far the BEST dining experience I had experienced in a long, long while.

This is one of our favorite restaurants, and we are glad that they have reopened. As with a good many restaurants dealing with reopening under mandated conditions, they seem to be dealing with organizational issues that I am certain will be worked out.

Food was great. It is a very pricey dinner and we knew that going into it. We saved up for a special night out. At times it felt that our waiter was much more attentive to other tables and let us go by the way side. It took a far longer than I expected to get bread and our drinks. Other people were already seated and had bread and drinks that came in after us, before we got anything. Just didn't feel like we had the same attention to service as everyone else. For the price, I've had more attentive service at Chick-Fil-A. The food we had was excellent and I would recommend Capital Grille for that reason and hope that someone else has better service than we did.

We went there exactly one year before our postponed wedding date (we called it our -1 anniversary) and they made it very special for us. They sprinkled the table with heart confetti, brought us a very special dessert and two champagne flutes. Very VERY good service!

Service was great.

Food was good except received bread with mold on it and 2 out of 5 steaks severely overcooked. For a total bill of $850 prior to tax and tip, I would expect steaks to be properly cooked
