Good over priced. Ordered the lamb chops and the side that came with the meal was so salty that you couldn't eat it. Lamb chops were fatty but cooked well. Ok experience but would suggest to try another spot in Nashville before this.

Cuban sandwich meat was extremely tough. Not easy to eat. Brisket Hash was potatoes. Very little meat and rather one note. Atmosphere was great and server was really nice but based on food, it was disappointing. We have been here before and the food was okay, not today. Expected more for such a nice place.

Had great service all the way through the meal, but could not get our waiter's attention after he cleared our table and after we declined the dessert menu.

My husband and I dined here for our 29th anniversary on Saturday Oct 12, 2019. I ordered a fillet medium. My fillet came rare, which the waiter confirmed. I waited 20 min for my fillet to come back, & it was then well done. Did not send it back, due to my husband was finished with his dinner by that time. Also while we were trying to enjoy our dinner, the wait staff was clearing & undressing all the unoccupied tables around us & the other guests. This was at 8 pm in the evening. It was rude, & not very nice to see this on a Saturday evening while we are eating & trying to enjoy our dinner. Dinner was not inexpensive, our bill was $239.00. We don't expect perfection, & we dine at upscale restaurants frequently. To have this kind of service at a fine restaurant at the Hermitage Hotel is unexceptable. We do not live in Nashville, nor travel here often. But we would never recommend this restaurant to further guests.

Prefer the Capital grill to the Captiol Grill. Small menu with no potatoes as forgot to add to menu.

My husband had the ribeye with a side of horseradish au jus. The au jus was extremely salty like they use a beef base. I had the petite fillet with the red wine mushroom Demi. Again very salty and not at all tasty. The steaks were good but not the best we’ve had. The dessert of Beignets with blueberry compote and buttermilk lemon ice cream was delicious. Coffee is french press and is delicious. Service was excellent! Pretty place.

The place is dated and the food is a step above hospital cuisine. There was a loud group of people next to us and not only did management not attempt to quiet them- they perpetuated their nonsense by engaging and joking. Our waiter was pleasant- which was the only saving grace. I should have bailed when we sat down and looked around- but it was late and felt I had no choice. Portions were small and the wine pour should have been advertised as a, “tasting” not a glass. The ship sailed on this restaurant about 40 years ago. It’s day has come and gone!

Went to Capital Grill to celebrate 31st anniversary. This was noted on our OoenTable reservation, but not acknowledged by staff. We felt like we were rushed through dinner; reservation was at 7:30 & we called for Uber at 8:35. Actual menu and wait staff dress could have been at a Dixie stampede event. Not the elegant experience we were looking for.

Upon arrival the hostess said she had our reservation for 2 when I had booked 4 through Open Table, while on the way to the table my husband cut his arm on a chair that had a sharp edge they offered a bandaid but as he was bleeding profusely I would have thought that they would checked on him but they did not. The food was good I would not say the best Capital Grill we gave dined at. Over all I would say a average or slightly above average experience.

I think it's overrated. Ambiance was nice. My filet was almost pancake thin and not done to proper temperature. Others in my party got fish and chicken and enjoyed. Many better places in Nashville.

My wife and I had a very lovely meal, and the service was outstanding. Our server, Robert, was one of the reasons we enjoyed the meal so much. Even after we changed our mind a couple of times on the wine we wanted with dinner, Robert was very patient and funny. He had the right amount of attention paid to us-not too much and not too little, just right!

It was nice. We came and there was only 2 other tables with people. That kind of made it not as fun. Not the restaurants fault. Fancy. We will try again

It started not well. No hostess to greet and it was 8 PM? Took over 10 minutes for anyone to acknowledge me and my wife and when they did it was a server? Once seated nothing really helpful from our server, no specials or recommendations etc. stuff you normally expect from an upscale location. After ordering and getting our drinks, I ordered a beer. The server put both down without pouring the beer in the glass, as I went for it he asked me if I wanted to pour it or if he should? Why are you asking me, I'm not at a 2 star and even at that they always pour it? We had to ask for bread after our apps came out?

Food was good but didn't blow my mind by any means, all and all was disappointed and would never return. Far better restaurants in Nashville.

Visited Nashville to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We told this would be THE place to go to celebrate. Missed the mark. Wanted a romantic dinner, kinda stuffy. Service was good but not exceptional. Food was average, not outstanding. Beautiful hotel, but I’m sure Nashville would have a better option for a romantic dinner.
