Always been our place for special occasions, and it’s always been excellent. This time not so much. Kudos to the person refilling our water. They were on it. However, our waiter never asked if we wanted refills on beer and wine, which we would have taken. My filet minon was very dry. Lots of little things but both the food and service not up to what we’ve come to expect at this restaurant.
Took my wife here for a late valentines dinner date. Food was exceptional. Service could’ve been slightly better considering the cost. Overall had a good experience and would gladly return.
My wife and I finally had a date night and decided to try The Capital Grille based on a recommendation from one of our adult children. I was a great experience for a special night out. It is a very nice, upscale restaurant with a very nice romantic ambiance. Service as excellent....(our server even had our vehicle warmed up and ready for us) Food was delicious although a bit on the expensive side. I would rate it as very comparable to the Jeff Ruby chain of restaurants here in Cincy. We were very pleased with our experience and hope to return for future date nights!
This was an exceptional dinner for our family as we celebrated my husband's birthday. The table was decorated and even included coloring books for our girls. Brian our server was very attentive and courteous. The busboy was very nice and sweet and he surprise our girls with a gift. Food and drinks were delicious! Thank you for making his birthday special.
I came here for my birthday dinner and the whole experience was wonderful!!!The staff, the food, everything was so nice, I will definitely be back.
Always great for a special occasion! All of the food was delicious. The server William made everything extra fun!
Fantastic b’day lunch! Great service and food!
Howie provided excellent service that made the food even better than usual. We’ll ask for him again.
From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, we had an outstanding experience. Friendly, professional and knowledgeable service. We were not rushed through our meal at all. Our steaks were fork tender. The server brought us a special dessert for our anniversary. Quite unexpected, yet appreciated!
Great food and great service
There is not one thing I could tell you to convince you of how amazing this place is, other than to encourage you to try it. The food, the service, and everything in between is well worth the money spent.
For dinner, the two of us had:
Garlic shrimp appetizer
Caesar and "house" salad
32oz. Porterhouse to share
Apple, cinnamon and ice cream dessert
Our server was phenominal, and they give out cards to let you know who they are. No question I'll be back the next time I'm in Cincinnati.
The seafood tower was great; and the steaks were perfect. Howie is the king of the wait staff and serving world.
Greatest restaurant in Cincinnati
My date and I ordered the same lobster bisque and yet it was totally different for both of us. The mushrooms came out cold with dinner and the sauce came on the steak despite being asked for it on the side. For the price, it wasn’t worth it.
Valerie was our wait person. Very helpful and did not rush us. Food was wonderful! Very elegant setting.
We all had the ribeye steak sandwich and it was delicious. They make the best steak sandwich I have ever eaten. Our server Amity was great. She took good care of us. We had a very enjoyable lunch.
Wonderful experience—the food was fantastic and steaks were cooked well. Our server Darius was exception and a pleasure. Definitely will go back —we celebrated a birthday and other achievements and the food far exceeded my expectations for a chain restaurant!
The table was nicely decorated for our anniversary. We also received complimentary Champaign and dessert. The service was fantastic.
The wait to receive our entrées took a very long time.
Good food and good service. Received a lot more than we expected.
Everything was wonderful as always,and our server Noah was great!
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
