Had a wonderful birthday dinner. Great ambiance, perfectly prepared meal and attentive wait staff. Couldn’t ask for more.
Amazing experience. Booked a 9pm res on open table but their hours on Sunday only went to 9. They honored the reservation for us, gave incredible service and didn't rush us through the meal. Food was also cooked perfectly and tasted wonderful.
Birthday celebration for our daughter
Not our best dinner here. Extremely busy from beginning to end. Frustrating to ask for bread, repeated requests for side items such as lemons, water and cocktail refills, etc. We love Capital Grill, so we will be back as this was our first true lackluster experience, hopefully the last!
Our server, James, was extremely congenial, entertaining, knowledgeable and professional. He immediately made us feel comfortable with his easygoing manner as he expertly highlighted items on the wine and entree menus. James is a true asset to The Capital Grille. We wish all servers could be like James.
Very over-priced. There are no small to medium steak portions (smallest is 10 ounces). Service was very good. Expensive steak comes with no side or salad. Jeff Ruby gives you a salad!
Spent a birthday dinner at The Capital Grille. Service was exceptional noise level was normal and food was fantastic. Highly recommended and Valerie was great!
This was our first time there (even though I've had lots of colleagues speak of how wonderful it it). We went there to celebrate our anniversary and had a lovely time. Our server, Valerie, was awesome and made our dinner extra special...she was lovely. The cocktails and food were wonderful and tasty. My husband and I both had steaks and they were fabulous! We don't eat at places like this regularly since it's clearly pricey (and we're practical when it comes to $$) but we definitely enjoyed ourselves and will certainly go back for special occasions.
Tonight we were celebrating my boyfriends birthday. But before we arrived we went back to our Alma mater Xavier University to walk around while there my boyfriend proposed. I said yes and we headed off to dinner at the Capital Grill. From the moment we arrived the experience was quite notable. Everyone was extremely friendly and nice. I was handed a rose to congratulate me on the engagement. The wait staff was impeccable the food fabulous. Everything was on point and this made the evening more memorable. We will most definitely be back for other birthdays and now to celebrate the day we got engaged. Thanks Capital Grille for making this a memorable dining experience.
We had steaks, french onion soup, mashed potatoes, and lobster mac & choose. Everything was amazing and cooked perfectly. The restaurant is spacious enough that you can relax and hear each other talk, even when its crowded. Our service is probably the best I have ever had, in any restaurant EVER! Amty was our server and she was beyond terrific. Very attentive, explained the specials well and answered menu questions perfectly, super courteous and at the end of dinner even brought the two ladies at our table a single red rose. What?! I've never had that happen. Capital Grille hands down beats any restaurant in Cincy, including Ruby's restaurants, for quality of food, ambiance, and service. Great job!
Food and service was amazing - sadly after we checked in a later member of our party was told no one was there (though hostess updated my rsvp to 5) and sat her in a separate section than we were in - she was separated from us for 30 min until I saw a missed text. Very unusual for all my experiences to date. She was offered a free cocktail but it was on the bill. We had a good size bill and regulars - so we understand but others may not
Melanie was amazing! She knew the menu and details about specific dishes. Her descriptions made us want to order one of everything!
Birthday celebration for my daughter-in-law. Outstanding service by Cameron and the staff made it a delightful evening. Stacey, at the bar made some fantastic drinks. She may be some type of a walnut flavored sour that was outstanding. Probably should be on the menu.
Wonderful dinner Saturday night. The steaks were terrific and our server made our dinner even better with good service and good recommendations.
The servers are excellent! My guest are all impressed and happy about it!
The entire staff is awesome. Thanks Valerie for a great evening. Your service is impeccable.
My wife and I ate there for our 30th anniversary. Our waiter James was excellent, knowledgeable and attentive. All of the food was excellent, especially those James recommended. I’ll definitely be going back.
Food and Service was outstanding as always - excellent meal
Incredible food, service, and ambiance!
Great server, Great Food, Great way to bring in the new year!
Service has always been impeccable - and food incredible
The New Year's special included a bone-in filet and lobster tails. The steak melted in my mouth and had great flavor. The lobster tail was sweet and tender. Darius provided great service on a very busy occasion.
Consistently good food and good service
Having been to Capital Grille years ago in McLean, VA, I thought this would be nice for our golden wedding anniversary (29 years on Dec 29)... and it was far better than just nice. The meal was exquisite and our anniversary was honored with a champagne toast and wonderful hour chocolate torte a la mode!
Sam our server was fantastic. The food was delicious and the staff made us feel very special with the warm wishes!
We were a party of 9 and our service was fantastic, and the food was delicious, Hats off to our server Barry and the rest of the staff.
HAD A GIRLS NIGHT OUT. WAITRESS SAM WAS EXCELLENT. STEAK WAS “OH MY” GOOD. ENJOYED OURSELVES AS ONLY WOMEN CAN DO. GREAT NIGHT OUT, THANKS
Excellent food, excellent service, nice setting. This has become a celebratory spot for us. We will return often.
Annual family dinner at Christmas. Exceptional service from William H. Overall experience from food quality to seating location lesser than 2018’s Christmas time visit. Still very good but did not reach the bar set previously.
Great food and attentive service.
Capitol Grille is always a favorite. Good atmosphere, professional service and excellent food
We ordered the tenderloin sliders. The menu didn’t indicate they would come with a Boursin mushroom sauce which was heavily applied to the very small portion of meat. We had to request replacement. The meat was not only smaller than expected but very dry, even though ordered medium rare. The mushroom soup and truffle fries were excellent.
Great food and atmosphere - a very special holiday occasion! Our server, William, was especially attentive and engaging -.we.will definitely return during our next visit to Cincinnati.
Perfection. Food and service where awesome.
Fanatic way to celebrate our anniversary.
Great Birthday Dinner. Howie was amazing as usual
Vegetables were not good . Had to remind waiter for dinner wine. Just a couple things that expected to be better at The Capital.
Our family was in town, so we wanted a special place and Capital Grille is that. The ambience is beautiful and elegantly understated. The food is always well presented and our server Traci was attentive as was the rest of the wait staff. The only disappointment was when one of our dishes came out to the table, it was wrong, but the man bringing out the wrong dish argued it was the right one. Thankfully Traci and the manager Heather had better table-manners and promptly took care of the situation. They were gracious in their resolution as befitting a nice restaurant.
This is our go to place for special occasions. We've tried other restaurants like Ruth Chris, Jack Ruby and the Precinct but for an overall dining experience, Capital Grille is the place for us. The food is superior in all these establishments. What sets CG apart is the service and commitment to making the occasion special. It starts with the receptionist wishing us a Happy Anniversary when taking us to our table. The extra decorations at the table and the roses for my wife at the end the complementary desert helps make this dinner special. The only thing that wasn't quite perfect was the serving temperature of the very delicious lobster bisque. It was just above tepid. Every thing else was great. We will go back for our next special event which will be our Son's graduation from college in May.
Service was impeccable
