Our server Amity was very good, the Meal was delicious 😋 and as we were celebrating 3 birthdays among the 4 of us, we were treated to a lovely desert with our coffee. We come twice a year for our birthdays. Usually for lunch, sometimes for dinner. Capital Grille always makes you feel special with the personalized birthday cards and the great food and service. Worth every penny.

Our server, Darius, gave us perfect service. Darius was knowledgeably, described the courses perfectly. Darius was well versed on the wine list and offered alternatives within the varietal we selected.

Also our complements to Perry’s who greeted us warmly.

All told, an excellent experience

Another fantastic experience at Capitol Grill. Celebrated our moms 84th birthday. The entire staff went out of their way to acknowledge her special day. Cliff was stellar with his recommendations and service. The meals were outstanding and moms birthday cheesecake (with a candle) capped off the perfect evening. Capitol Grill has become our favorite restaurant in Cincinnati.

We went to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The service was great and food delicious! They had confetti on the table when we arrived and gave us each a glass of champagne to celebrate which was a nice touch! Our waiter was very attentive and the manager came by and assisted us with a nice wine choice. We really enjoyed ourselves and will be back!

My husband and I went here for a date night. We couldn’t have been happier with the choice. Amity was our server and she was just the best! From the moment we sat down to when we left, the experience was top notch. Cannot wait to go back!

We had reservation. When we arrived we were seated promptly. Waiter took our drink order quickly, it went downhill after that. Our food didn't arri be for 43 minutes later, We had the au graten potatoes which were for some strange reason less then room temperature even though the serving dish was extremely hot. Food was alright, I've definitely had better. I thought for the money the portions should have been a tad larger. Bottom line we would be returning anytime soon

My wife and I both ordered the filet mignon. Steak was poorly seasoned and the char was overly charred. We sent our steaks back and they came out less charred and tasted better but, still lacking seasoning. For the price I paid I wouldn’t go here again. I’ve cooked better steaks at home with low quality meat. I’ve had better tasting steaks at Longhorn, Outback, and Carlo and Johnny.

The lobster was outrageous! As was the bread, appetizers and sides. My mom had a filet with crab meat atop that was also outstanding. Can’t say enough about the service, as well. Polite, attentive, kind. Will definitely be coming back! Wow

We spent our 29th Anniversary at the Capital Grille. They went way above and beyond for us. Put a card and confetti’s on the table. Gave my wife a rose. Brought out a plate at the end of our dinner with great desserts on it. Great place to spend a special occasion.

My sons birthday. He couldn’t make it the night before when we went to the Capital Grille, so we returned with him for his birthday and Samantha took great care of us. Food was excellent as usual.

Another outstanding dinner at The Capital Grille. The staff is so courteous and accommodating. They work well together to make sure that the guests are well taken care of. Tonight, we had the pleasure to be served by William H. He was friendly and anticipated our needs. He consistently checked on the table and took care of all requests. He was friendly, yet professional. We had a very comfortable and pleasant dinning experience. At the table, we all order the filets. They were cooked to perfection and very tasty. I indulged in the espresso chocolate flourless cake. A little goes a long way. Its is so rich and decadent. I highly recommend The Capital Grille for any occasion.

It was mine and another friends birthday so we decided to attend restaurant week at capital grille and there were 8 in the group. We arrived and got seated pretty quickly in a private room, and that was a nice surprise.

Everything was great till we met our server, who we felt was pretty rude and dismissive. I was asking about different dressings you could get on the wedge salad, and his response was “well what do you want”. Once we stated we didn’t like bleu cheese, and asked if there was bleu cheese on the salad, he sarcastically told us “it is mixed into the dressing”. What we were wanting to know was if there were any bleu cheese crumbles on the salad.

At the end of our meal, my friend was trying to quietly pick up the check to pay for our meals, and the server loudly stated “who did you want to pay for?” And proceeds to head over to our table and point at us asking “are these the ones you wanted to pay for?”. I could tell my friend felt awkward, since he was trying to ask him on the side quietly.

Everyone else was polite and helpful. Overall, it would have been a great evening minus the service provided.

Experience was outstanding. Ate here during restaurant week. Food was excellent. Steaks were cooked to order and the best steaks we have had ever. Regular menu prices are a bit out of our price range for everyday dining but this will definitely be our new go-to for special occasion dinners.

Luckily we had the Board Room to seat our party of nine. Wonderful space, with round table. Our family could see each other, communicate well.
Food was delightful, delicious. Appreciated the choices.
Service was attentive and not intrusive.
Thanks for a lovely dinner during Cincinnati's restaurant week

The food was very good and the price was great. Although, I went during Cincinnati Restaurant Week. I'm not sure what the prices are normally. The steak was good, but the roasted chicken with risotto was better.
