The food was good, but the pace of service was terrible last night. They had a wine tasting event, but if they cannot provide exceptional service at all times they shouldn’t charge exceptional prices. Or, perhaps they should post a sign warning “slow service ahead”.

Joe was terrific. He knew all the answers to our questions, made great recommendations, was personable, checked back the right number of times, if we asked for something he got it right away, food is unbelievable especially the spinach salad and the south African Lobster tail, Capital Grille is our favorite restaurant over the other big names in Cincinnati. Sorry for the run-on poor grammar sentence but it is all true!

Food preparation was good except for 1 steak ordered medium well came out medium rare/rare and 1 steak ordered medium came out rare. It was not very busy but it still took over 2 hours to get a salad and steak.
Server was knowledgeable and picked up on a faulty wine cork which was associated with a poor bottle of wine.

We've been and will continue to be loyal fans of Capital Grille, we've been to many locations in the US. We would like to see an enhanced menu, it begins to feel too much like a chain when the menu is stagnant. Some additional appetizers and sides would be nice..

usually superb when we visit here, but this time, just fair. it took a long time to get our meal, the steak cut was below average, and the service was just honestly "ok", the server actually spilled plates on the floor as she was clearing our table. i will go back, but this visit was disappointing for sure.

We get to dine quite often at high end restaurants. Very over priced!! Way too much sauce trying to hide flavorless fish. Same with the stakes. Service was good.

Food and service here are consistently great. The staff are friendly and attentive. My family comes here regularly and we always have a good dinner. I typically get one of the steaks; tonight, I split their special "tomahawk" aged steak and it was one of the best I've had in a while.

They made our daughter’s graduation celebration even more special by decorating the table, giving her a handwritten card and even offering to pay for her meal if she chose certain items from a special menu.
