I said yes I would recommend it to a friend. But it depends on who the friend is. Someone who
enjoys spending money on a meal that equals Seasons 52, but costs twice as much because of its
name.

Also, I want to give the staff, especially, our waiter, Dustin, the highest rating possible. Everyone
from the moment we entered the front door until we left the restaurant was professional, well versed
in all aspects of drink and food and gracious hospitality. The young people staffing the restaurant
are awesome.

This is the best restaurant in Cincinnati and it's only 5 minutes from my house. The luncheon prices are not expensive, and always delicious. I've gone to some less expensive restaurants and paid more, but the food can't compare to Capital Grill. The staff is so professional and attentive. You don't need a special occasion to go there...you will feel special every time you go there!

Our waiter was William. Ask for him if possible. I had a table of seven, had fantastic service. William has the skill set of waiting till the conversation ebbs before jumping in and offering or asking questions. So many times a waiter can be so damn intrusive that I’ve told overly intrusive waiters to “back off”. William knows his business.

Food was fantastic as expected. Service from the second we walked in was extraordinary. We’ll go back and sit in William’s section again.

I love the Capital Grille, would visit the one in Kansas City often and always have the most amazing food and service. This location had good service, bu the food was not good. Overly dressed wedge salad, over cooked steak, overly salted spinach. Just meh. I wouldn’t go back here.

I love the CapitalGrille most of the time. On holidays, especially Easter, not so much. I’m a traditionalist and choose ham, lamb, even roast beef. We chose the brunch menu which was uninspiring, but nevertheless delicious. So, yes, we did enjoy being together and the ambiance is outstanding.

Server misinterpreted my humor towards my wife as an opening to treat her in my opinion thereafter with disrespect. I even invited him back to the table to ask him directly what was said as it was said in passing originally as he left the table. Implying that the many raw sugar packets used for our coffees and refills at the restaurant were somehow not being used for said purpose and that she needed to place the extras into her purse. Shame on me for opening up the conversation with a joke on not being able to select which of the fabulous Easter brunch selections to choose and wishing with no disrespect to the fabulous Capital Grille that there was a Panera like Pick 2 option since many appealed to us. No apology was given to my question, no gesture of misinterpretation towards my wife or I provided. Always a great experience at this location with this hopeful rare exception of individual personality. I will know not to make that mistake again and be too friendly to staff if they feel it is an opening to back hand complement someone I cherish.

My wife and I went for dinner there for the second time in 2 weeks. We have been there before and have thoroughly enjoyed it each time. The food is great and the service is outstanding. We have always had Samantha for our server , sometimes by coincidence and other times by request. We definitely will be back for a dinner we want to really savor. Keep up the good work.
