The Capital Grille - Cincinnati Ratings and Reviews
Went with a friend for a pre-play dinner. The food was very good. Chef sent over an appetizer bite that was very good. Our waiter and assistant were very good as well. We felt the meal with a BIT pricey as my filet was the "special" and it had quite a bit of gristle and I attributed that to being the "special". Other than that the sides were wonderful and the atmosphere was lovely.
Extremely accommodating. We split the filet Oscar special, and they were able to cook half rare and half medium rare. The filet was perfect. It came on two plates. The drinks were wonderful. Try their special stoli if you like pineapple infused vodka. They surprised us with two glasses of champagne between dinner and dessert which was an amazingly light ricotta cheesecake. Service was impeccable. One of my favorite places to go.
The prosciutto wrapped mozzarella was wonderful, as usual. We both had one of the current specials...a filet topped with lump crab meat, bearnais, and asparagus. This is one of the house specialties at one of the other local high end steak restaurants, and it's marvelous. The Capital Grille's, though, is what theirs wants to be.
Our server was Chris. The service was exceptional. He went above and beyond to make my best friends birthday celebration special with little extras. My best friend is vegetarian so Chris went to the chef and he made her something that wasn’t even in the menu! It was delicious (I tasted lol) The food was seasoned and cooked perfectly. Next time I’ll have to try a steak, we all ordered fish entrees. I will definitely be back!
My wife and I just moved to the area and this was our first fine dining experience in Cincinnati let alone our first date night in 2 years (without kids)and we will be back. The service was great and William was our waiter. He was hilarious and very well educated on the menu. Definitely ask for him if you go their. Great service makes all the difference with high price points and free valet was an added bonus as well as my steak being on point😁👌
We very much enjoyed our dinner and experience at Capital Grille, but three things weren’t so good: the green beans weren’t cooked enough, the Brussel sprouts were over cooked (too charred) and they put my husband’s leftover piece of filet in the same take home box as the green beans (unsanitary!). Overall it was a good evening, we liked our waiter and I appreciated the dessert on the house.
Very appreciative of the attention given to our book club! Under unusual circumstances (family emergency), the restaurant was fantastic! While supporting our desire to be in a quiet location, they set us up in the boardroom. Then when two of us had to leave, they accommodated the remainder of the group and wrote off the items we had incurred. We will definitely be back as we have every year as our special treat. 5 stars *
Jason was outstanding. Yes, the food was amazing and checking out the drink menu on an iPad was pretty cool. But the thing I was most impressed with was Jason’s ability to read our table and see that, unlike the table next to us, we wanted to extend our special Saturday night out. The courses were appropriately timed and the specials were to die for. I wanted to see what the buzz was about at Capital Grille and I found out. Great job guys!
Our server went out of his way to make the birthday celebration for my husband and his friend extra special. We were provided complimentary desserts and complimentary champagne for toasting. It was a lovely evening with excellent food and service. We will be back.
We. Came to celebrate my husband’s Birthday. My husband and son both loved the special for the evening. My husband had the surf and turf and thoroughly enjoyed every bite. The choices for a side were all outstanding. It was hard to choose one - but I’m glad we only chose one since two would have been too much. (Go for the green beans.) The fish was wonderful. Our daughter had the salmon and loved it.
As always, the wine list is outstanding / we decided to have drinks instead - perfect Martinis.
Gavin was our waiter. His timing was outstanding. The “Birthday plate” for my husband was enough. We were full after having our dinner.
Third time there! Hasn’t disappointed yet. The halibut is outstanding. Also have had the Oscar filet.....to die for. Chris was our server twice. We I’ll ask for him again. He is great at his job. I am a fan, I even like their Mac n cheese better than jeff Ruby’s. 🤫
Beautiful elegant atmosphere. Steaks are really good (not as good as Ruby but a close second) and their sides are to die for (better than Ruby’s!). Lobster truffle Mac is amazing, the Brussels sprouts are th best I’ve ever had anywhere and their mushrooms were also the best. Everyone raves about the mashed potatoes. I definitely recommend!
First of all, the food was excellent, however, the service was way below par for a restaurant of this level. It was Christmas Eve but they seemed tp be way under staffed. It took at least 10 minutes for someone to approach us after being seated. Another 10 minutes to take a drink order after leaving an iPad like device displaying the drink selections. We received our food in a timely manner and then waited so long to get our leftovers boxed that the waiter had a complimentary dessert sent to our table because he realized that the service was so slow. There was even a long wait to get the dessert. Finally, there was a 20 minute delay in getting our car from valet. There were several angry patrons waiting for cars in the lobby.
This place is always on my list of go-to, consistently good restaurants. This time I was disappointed. Since it was Christmas Eve, I should give it a pass - but I can’t. This is where decent restaurants should shine...still put out excellent food when all hell is breakin* loose. It wasn’t I’ll-never-go-back bad, but two steaks were WAY undercooked and the waiter was dismissive/put out by us asking for correct temperature. I think he thought he was working at Le Bernardin, not a chain steak house. Ick.
My recommendation is go here, just not on Christmas Eve
Absolutely fantastic Christmas Eve dinner. We spent several Christmas Eve dinners at Eddie Merlot’s, but the service has been horrible the past two years, so we opted for a change of scenery—best decision we made during the holiday season. We will definitely return. The service staff, and especially our server Jeremy, was top notch. The food was fantastic, steaks were tender and well prepared and the “Oscar” topping had loads of crab. The complimentary brussel sprouts were phenomenal and the chocolate cake with port infused cherries is not to be missed.
