Too much light. Ambiance needs improving. Ban cell phone conversation at the table. Food was creative but a $50 fish!

Excellent food and service. Wine choices were superb as well. We enjoy dining here when in Nashville. We enjoyed the 5 oz beef filet and the fish of the day was my favorite Red Grouper! Will return soon.

We went for Brunch and most of us at the table got the bottomless mimosas. Highly recommend! our glasses barely got empty before the waiters were there to top them off. I had the crab cake sandwich and it was so light and delicious. Another person at the table got the shrimp and grits and they were seriously the best shrimp & grits I have ever tasted. Will definitely be going back!

Very nice experience. First time there. Love the look and the ambience. Felt like an old school restaurant where they really take care if you. Pricey but not the most expensive I’ve seen and a very good place for a special occasion.

We went to Capitol Grille before catching a show at TPAC. The service and food were good. I felt like the menu needed more selections. My family also thought the food was good. However, competition is fierce in Nashville and I think they should step up their game. There are many other options with great tasting food.

Capitol Grille is my favorite Nashville restaurant. This night was my birthday and I enjoyed dinner with my lovely wife before attending a concert. The food and service was excellent and I was even given a special birthday dessert of macaroons and they were wonderful.

The food was fine but expensive. The air tempurature on the other hand was awful. It was thirty or less and windy outside. Inside the restaurant wasn't much better. They couldn't turn off the air conditioning. We had to eat with our winter coats on and our collars up to shield from the draft.

This restaurant is in a beautiful restored 5 star hotel. The service and food were outstanding. They have an amazing wine list, but very few bottles are offered under $100. That I found disappointing. Overall, we had a lovely dinner and I would recommend the Capitol Grill to any one who wants fine dining while visiting Nashville.

Love the ambience & service. Wonderful to dine in such a beautiful & peaceful atmosphere. Every person we were in contact with was pleasant & friendly, from the doorman, the valet and servers.


Our food was prepared nicely, but for our taste, slightly on the bland side.


My Cosmopolitan was average, not well chilled, and served in a champagne glass? Not cool.

The Capitol Grille is the kind of restaurant where formality and exceptional service are not forgotten. It makes it a desirable setting for special occasions, or when there is a need to impress. The Valentine’s Day menu was prix fixed, so selections were limited. However, the oysters were cold, quite fresh and briny and the mignonette added a nice amount of acid. The star of the meal - the double lamb chops. These were nicely grilled on the outside a perfect med rare center, juicy and flavorful. They clearly get some good cuts of meat. The restaurant offers traditional fare: steak and some twists on southern staples, and as such competes with the myriad of steak houses in town, none of which can completely match the elegance and air of tradition of the Grille. It is that more than culinary wizardry that makes it a must try.
