Yet another great experience at Capital Grille. We had previously shared our fine dining in the tri state between a few restaurants, but after we came here and had the pleasure of having Jason as our server we cut the others out. Once again it was hard to distinguish what was more remarkable: the amazing food or Jason's incredible service. We are already looking forward to our next visit. Leave the other places behind, head here, and ask for Jason!

Our visit was for my wife's birthday which was noted in our reservation. The staff at Capital Grille went above and beyond to make the occasion a special one with a lovely, large booth, hand written card, gold confetti, complimentary desserts and sparkling wine. And the food? INCREDIBLE . What an experience.

Service and food quality excellent. Our server,Greg Lavender, was outstanding. I have requested Greg as our server for all future visits. I made our lunch reservation using your online system commenting it was my wife's birthday. Upon our arrival, we were pleasantly surprised to see that your staff had taken the time to decorate our table with stars and birthday comments! My wife and I were delighted by your thoughtfulness.

I'm not what I would consider a regular, but dropping $500 on a dinner for 4 is not something I can afford often. I've been there 4-5 times, and for the last 3 have asked for my same server... because the service was good in the past. Unfortunately, my guy was NOT on his game this time. Incredibly slow, inattentive service. My friend was unable to get the meal she wanted... not because they were out, because the chef didn't want to pair the vegetable she wanted with what she ordered. I sent a similar note to them directly. Received a call saying that they were sorry and offered a $30 bottle of wine for my next ($500) visit. I thanked her for the offer, and stated that they would not be getting any more of my $ anytime soon. I expected better. Too bad... was one of my go-to places for special occasions.

The Capital Grille is my favorite Cincinnati restaurant! I often go for lunch, or with friends to celebrate a special event. I've never had a bad meal or bad waiter/waitress. I love the ambiance of fine dining without it being stuffy or snobby. They always make me feel welcome.
I highly recommend the Capital Grill for any occasion!

Went for our family gathering for the holidays. We always try a new steak place and have eaten in numerous restaurants from cincy to philly and this is by far the best food (steaks, appetizers, sides) we have had. The ribeye was outstanding! Our waiter was Broadus who was very attentive to every request made and assured we had a wonderful dinner.

Unfortunately my meal was not up to snuff. I ordered the rack of lamb and the center was raw. By the time it was returned to me it was so late I was hardly hungry. The steaks ordered ny others were really good.

Food quality was poor. Appetizer was raw (crab cakes)
Entree was Lobster out of the shell. It had shell fragments in it and a claw.
Not a happy/pleasant experience for a birthday celebration. I was sad.

I love my time at Capital Grill every time! Broadus is one the best waiters and I request him whenever we go. Broadus always makes our dining experience that much more enjoyable. He always gives great recommendations and is very knowledgeable from the appetizers, wine, selection, main coarse selections, and dessert!

We were seated by the hostess and then, unfortunately forgot about until Danielle, the bar server noticed us. Wasn’t the start to my wife’s birthday dinner that I hoped for but, I must say, Danielle saves the evening.
She was very attentive and definitely secured our desire to visit again.
I had the swordfish and my wife had the filet. Outstanding courses and just a wonderful evening.
Thank you goes out to Danielle!

Wonderful. We five agreed. From lobster roll to salmon, from tenderloin sliders to Cobb salad it was the best lunch in town. Darius was patient, accommodating, informative and always courteous and efficient. We'll certainly do this again and hopefully soon.
