 (Cincinnati)·Dined on October 27, 2017

My wife and I dined here for our anniversary (noted on the reservation). We were greeted with "happy anniversary" by the receptionist. When escorted to our table, there was a Happy Anniversary card and shiny foil hearts sprinkled on the white tablecloth. A nice touch, but that was just the beginning.

Our server Nathan was one of the best we have had anywhere in years. Friendly, personable, courteous, knowledgeable and attentive, without overdoing it.

Every course of our meal was excellent, and we were not rushed at any time. In fact, we spent two hours there. The food was absolutely excellent. Then, after dinner, we were given complimentary champagne, a dessert, and a rose for my wife. Capital Grille could not have made it more special. We will probably celebrate future anniversaries here as well.

This is my favorite Cincinnati restaurant and I go there at least once a month. The food, ambiance and wait staff are excellent! I particularly request, Jason....he's tops! He makes my guests and me feel like we're having a meal at his house. I definitely recommend the Capital Grill....and, not just for special occasions.

We forgot it was Sweetest Day, so we had a family date night planned. The three of us had an amazing dinner. Steaks were incredible and the lobster was perfect. Our server, Stacie, was exceptional. Thank you Capital Grille for a great meal!

We went to Capital Grill 3 years ago to celebrate my wife being 3 years cancer free. It was an over the top experience. The Chef and Manager talked to us. They brought out special drink and dessert. The waitress gave us her card. We got followup emails. So we return to celebrate 5 years cancer free. I told two people that. But this time nothing special except a acrd for "free fried calamari". Great food and service but the special touch not there this time. Sigh. Wonder if management has changed. Or they are just too busy now.

Our waitress Valerie was great and all the staff were very attentive. We made our own surf and turf and everything was fantastic! This was definitely a wonderful food and drink filled evening! We were good by to the Pops concert and Valerie made sure we had plenty of time to arrive in time for the show. Capital Grille is top notch when it comes to customer service!

We had 7 in our party and this was a birthday celebration for my wife. The staff decorated the table and gave a complimentary desert. Also in the beginning we had some special little chocolate treats for each guest and they were kind enough to place them at each place setting before we were seated. The dry ages steaks are incredible, I had the 10 oz. filet. The wine list has a wide range in prices which is good if you're on a budget, but I recommend you be prepared to spend $200/couple which includes an appetizer, ala cart salad, and 2-3 drinks each. The service is incredibly good. Wes was our server and he was friendly and we could joke with him.

My all tine favorite restaurant. The best steak and seafood in town. The service was simply amazing. Jeremy was a remarkable server. While this is a pricey restaurant it is worth every penny! Everyone i took to dinner agreed it was all very scrumptious and delicious! A truly special evening for my business colleagues.

We made a short notice reservation. Our evening turned out very nice. Great service from Jason. Great food in a nice atmosphere. It could have been a little more prompt but was worth the short and reasonable wait. Nice to have valet. We had an important business meeting. The noise level was not unreasonable so conversation was easy.

We celebrated my two daughters Birthdays. They did an excellent job helping us celebrate. They had confetti on the table along with 2 birthday cards when we were seated. They also brought the dessert on a plate with Happy Birthday written on the plate in chocolate. They brought us a complimentary glass of champagne with dessert. They made it a very special night for my daughters! I highly recommend it.

Visited Capital Grill during restaurant week. Great deal for the money. Steak was outstanding. Service was very good. For $35 it was an amazing meal. Otherwise Very expensive when ordering from their regular menu. Highly recommend Capital Grill when looking for a fine meal.

Consistent in quality of food, service and fine dining makes the Capital Grill s great choice. The meal always begins with a large basket of various breads. The salads are good and the steaks are prepared perfectly. We enjoyed the Kona steak. The wine selection is on a tablet which allows a full description of each variety. We look forward to our next visit.

Chosen because of Restaurant Week specials. Regular prices too expensive for us, unless special occasion. Impressed that special priced dinners included high end steaks & sides & $10 wines glasses offered. Good portions- took leftovers! Server Jason was friendly & fun. Waited 15 min for our reservation (only negative).
