We had amazing service provided by Lance who accommodated my Mom's special diet and even had the chef prepare change how part of her dish was cooked. Lance also brought a birthday surprise dessert that met her dietary needs. Mom said this was the "best meal and service I've had in my 85 years!"

Lance! ALWAYS ASK FOR LANCE!!! He works basically every day but Wednesday’s and man, did he treat us AMAZING. Literally it was the best date I had EVER had thanks to him. He was so personable, really took the time to connect with us and make us feel so special. We’ve been coming to the capital for quite some time and this was hands down THE BEST service we have EVER had! All thanks to Lance! We can not rave enough on how amazing this server was- absolutely amazing.

Once again our server William was awesome. I've been eating at fine dinning restaurants for over 30 years, and the server makes the difference in high end restaurants.


Thanks again William for the tremendous service and see you in a couple of months

My friend and I went for Greater Cincinnati Restaurant Week. Even though we ate off the special, lower-priced menu, we felt like were ordering the most expensive steak and wine available. Our server, Barry, was incredible. We never had to ask for anything, and service was impeccable. The food quality, taste, and portion size were fantastic! I would rate this as one of the top steakhouses in Cincinnati.

We were there for Restaurant Week. I had the strip steak, my wife had the salmon, we both had clam chowder, for desert we had the creme brulee and the flourless chocolate torte. Everything was excellent. The server was very professional and helpful. We will be returning. This was a first class operation.

You can't beat The Capital Grille during Restaurant Week! Amazing food, wonderful service and a great ambiance. I'll tell you how good it is, I busted some ribs two days before our reservation. I wasn't going to let a little pain come between me and a great experience.

Went to CG to celebrate two Anniversaries. We finished Dinner and dessert and I then requested the check...The server then tells me they wanted to do something to celebrate the anniversaries and brings out more desserts. I also told our server to make sure my son in-law got Cheesecake no matter what the cost....she forgot. I tipped her well anyway. The are several other restaurants of this level that I will patronize prior to returning to the CG. The food was good but not great.

We tried this restaurant for the first time during Greater Cincinnati Restaurant Week. We usually go to Embers or one of Ruby’s restaurants for special occasions. No more. This will be our new choice. Everything was outstanding. Even though the had a limited menu for restaurant week, they were flexible about several items. They made substitutions with a smile. Our server, Samantha, was probablely the best server we have EVER had in any restaurant anywhere in the world. She made us feel so special. My husband and I both ordered steaks which were so wonderful. My husband took one bite and put down his knife and fork and just closed his eyes. He said it was the best steak he had ever had. My husband is a picky eater and rarely likes anything. He loved every part of his meal here. Thanks Sam. You are a rock star!

We had been to The Capital Grill in DC and loved it. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining
experience. Lance was very knowledgeable with the menu, wine list and offered
exceptional suggestions. We chose your restaurant because of our previous visit in

We went for restaurant week. What a wonderful experience. Waiter, Jeremy was exceptional. Details of the wines, the choices we had and our questions were all answered in a way that would make you want to return even before we ate! After we finished our scrumptious entrees and dessert we would go without hesitation. Steaks, salads , veggies, sauces, bread, desserts all so well prepared and presented. 5 stars!
