We've been to The Capital Grille before and loved it. So my husband and I decided to go back for our 3rd anniversary, which Happened to fall on restaurant week, SCORE!🙌🏽 Our waiter was Kelly and he was beyond awesome! Sociable, knew the menu front and back, gave us enough room to enjoy our special evening but was always close enough if we needed anything! AND He practically ordered our meal for us. I can't wait to go back just to have his service again.

As always they did not disappoint. The food was incredible! Obviously the steak was wonderful but I think they have some of the most incredible mashed potatoes. My husband had the expresso cake and it was great. We love Capital Grille!

We had a reservation for 7:30 and we were there on time. However, we were told that they were in the process of turning over the tables and hence there was a delay. That delay turned out to be over 30 minutes. So, once we were seated, it took another 20 minutes before we were asked about our drinks and following that we had to ask for the bread basket since we were starving and no one seemed to be bringing it over.

We had the 'bone-in ribeye' (22 oz) and the salmon ... both these dishes were outstanding. It may have been an off-day in terms of service but it turned out fine.

WOW!!! The best restaurant for foods and service. We were there to celebrate my husband's birthday with a friend. When we arrived, our table was already set. There was a birthday card for him, the table top was sprinkled with hard fruit candies with wrappers that sparkled like jewels under the ceiling light. We were there for dinner 3 weeks before, was impressed with their menu. Their lobster bisque is incomparable. Huge chunks of sweet juicy lobster that you can really sink your teeth into. Then, they top it with drizzle of sherry tableside. Husband had lobster crab burger. Our friend had seared salmon w/avocado, mango and tomato salad and champagne vinaigrette. They both love it. Our server Rosemary was spot on with all our needs. I am a tea drinker, so tea service is very important to me. Great tea with honey and lemon. There was complimentary dual desserts (crime brûlée & flourless dark chocolate expresso cake). I can easily O.D. on this cake. We were also given champagne and red roses for the ladies. We have been to much pricier restaurants for birthday dinners, but never treated this well. This is now our FAVORITE RESTAURANT to celebrate and take our out of town visitors to.
Well done, and thank you for helping us celebrate. Your restaurant is definitely a gem!

I have heard heard great things about this restaurant. Everything as expected except don't recommend Monday nights. Substitute chef. Best piece of halibut I've ever had, however, loaded with too much salt. It was appropriately and removed from my bill. And I will attend to give them a second chance.

The main negative of the night was we had 7:15pm reservations and we weren't seated until 8:15pm. We were a party of 8 and all had young babies and baby sitters at home. The good news is they took great care of us and sent 4 appetizers and 2 bottles of wine to the table on the house once we were seated! For that reason we will go back!

Amazing dinner last evening at the Cinn Capital Grille celebrating one of our daughter's 16th birthday. Nathan, our waiter, was fantastic! Very attentive to our entire family - 3 adults and 2 teenagers. He mixed in personal stories in our dialogues and he was very in tune to everyone's needs while making all feel relaxed and special. Nathan and Peter (sommelier) helped us select a great bottle of wine and our food was outstanding! The only way it could have been better was if my other daughter and her husband could have joined us. Thank you Nathan and Capital Grille.

We have dined here many times. It out favorite restaurant. The service we had (Ann) was the worse. Every time we came there for a special occasion. Witch is all of them. We've alway been offered a shared desert and champagne. This time nothing Our drinks where empty a lot. She forgot about our soup as well. This was just an very bed experience.

Such an amazing evening celebrating our anniversary. Outstanding service by Fernando and the entire staff stopped by from time to time just to wish us a happy Anniversary. The table was beautiful. The food was amazing and they surprised us with a complimentary dessert.

Really, really lovely for an extra special occasion.

We loved everything about our experience, from the decor and ambience to the staff attention to the excellent food. Given that this is a chain, our expectations were lower and we were delighted that we were treated like special guests, and the food was excellent. It was my birthday, and I received extra special treatment, including a card and extra champagne cocktails. We will definitely be back!

This is my favorite, and one of the best restaurants in Cincinnati. The food is excellent, with attention to detail, and presented in a timely fashion. I've never had a bad or even average meal there. Each time I visit I request Jason as my waiter, he's just wonderful. However, when he's not working, other servers have done a great job, too.
I would recommend this restaurant for any event from just a night out for a good meal to celebrating a special event. You will not be disappointed!

Outstanding service. The restaurant is beautiful inside. The menu has many options. The salads were so fresh. The Shrimp cocktail was outstanding , the shrimp were huge and so yummy! The drinks were good and when you ask for a chilled gals for beer, it is really frosted. The tuna steak and fillet were cooked to perfection and tasty. Expensive but worth it.

We went for a birthday/anniversary celebration. The service was great...we never wanted for anything that wasn't immediately in front of us. Chris Wolfe, our server, was very attentive and provided us with excellent service! We've already made reservations for my birthday in December! 😋

We have been long-time patrons of the Capital Grille, starting in Philadelphia. Our last visit was probably the best meal we have ever had at any Capital Grille. Additionally, the service was top notch - the overall experience could not have been better. The Capital Grille is back at the top of our list, and we will surely be back! Thanks for a great experience.
