This is a very special place, filled with charm, history and class. Our waiter was Nathan, and he was a professional. Do as we did, go for Sunday brunch and just enjoy yourself! While most Sunday brunch menus tend to be streamlined, there are an amazing number of Sunday brunch options. So go, ask for Nathan, and prepare for a great meal and great memory.

We have eaten at the Oak Grill several times, the food has always been great. It was not even good this time. I had the crab cake as an appetizer, it was terrible. It was hardly cooked and tasted like paste, there was no crab in it. My wife had the oyster rockefeller and it came with a cream spinach mix, she was disappointed. My wife had the shrimp & grits, came with 5 small shrimp, along with a quart of grits. The only saving thing was my steak, it was ok. At $65, I could have bought an entire beef loin at the grocery and had steaks every weekend for a month. Our bill was $235, we were robbed.

I hadn't eaten there in a long time, but will definitely be putting it on my "special" list. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. Everything was a cut above your usual dining experience. And because it was quiet, it was a great place for my friend and I to catch up on old times. True Southern elegance meets true Southern comfort fare with a "twist." Excellent!

Both the starter and entree were very good and ghe service was very good. The setting was very nice and relaxed. However, the desert was disappointing, it was a very large sponge cake whicb lacked the subtle flavors that were achieved with the starters and entrees.

While I was eating a plate of appetizers, they started moving my plates around to serve my salad. I said, "I'm not ready for that yet." Then they lost my salad and forgot about it. When I asked about my salad, there was a delay while they made another. While I was eating my salad, they tried to serve my entree while my salad course was in the way. I had to tell them once again, "I'm not ready for that yet." Good service should include serving each course after you have finished the previous course.

My mistake for not validating but we went in thinking this was the chain, Capital Grille, so had our hearts set on calamari and a Stoli Doli - imagine our disappointment when we sat down and realized the error.

Regardless, we tried to make the most of it but were underwhelmed with the food. The crab cake was soggy and the broccolini side dish was too charred. The NY strip was delicious though.

It was overpriced and we would have likely spent less at much nicer restaurants. Needless to say, we won’t be back.

This dinner did not disappoint! Deb, in the bar, started off the evening with wonderful conversation and cocktails. We were then seated for dinner, and our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable regarding food/gluten questions. We began our meal with “southern” oysters Rockefeller... absolutely fabulous! I had the salmon and wedge salad- the salmon was crispy on the outside and perfectly tender and flaky medium on the inside. The hollandaise with capers was also a perfect touch. Also had drunken muscles at the table. They were uniquely prepared and delicious! Atmosphere was elegant and perfect! Worth every penny!

I ordered the 14oz ribeye and it was absolutely the best steak I've ever had. It was cooked perfectly and the quality was amazing. The Double H cattle and garden are the real deal.

We had a great dinner starting off, service started well and then went down. I don’t know if the the staff was short that night, we ran out of have water with or wine, we ran out of wine and were overlooked for several-10 minutes. Meal was delicious, best steak I’ve had in a setting, All sides were great but the anniversary desert was cold and hard

We had absolutely wonderful service. We were going to a concert after dinner and had only 1.5 hours to eat and get to the Ryman. We were seated immediately. We advised of our schedule and drinks immediately ordered. Our server advised of menu items that might take longer. We ordered fried green tomatoes as an appetizer. They were on the table within 4-5 minutes. We ordered petite filets, potatoes and asparagus. Dinner was served within 12 minutes. We enjoyed a very good meal and were finished within about 50 minutes. We could not have asked for better service. The food was great and was priced reasonably. We definitely will be back for local events at the Ryman, TPAC or Bridgestone Arena. Thank you Capital Grille!

It was our wedding night, we were early for our reservation and starved, so we ordered an appetizer and drinks at the bar. The order came back wrong, and we decided we didn’t want to replace it. The bartender brought it anyway (not comped) and said our drinks were “in the process” of being made, but they weren’t. At dinner, we ordered filet medium well and it came back rare and had to be sent back. Only nice thing was the complimentary champagne toast.

Wonderful evening that began with drinks in the lovely, comfortable, quiet Oak Room Bar. Can just imagine years ago this place required coat & tie, but there were people in shorts & tee shirts. Outstanding architecture, first class waitstaff, extensive liquor/wine list. Filet steak & huge scallops cooked to perfection. Menu is selective & is a la cart, $$, but worth it for the ambience & service. Nice change of pace from riot of Broadway. Glad a local friend & concierge recommended. Would definitely return.

I thought I was booking a reservation with one of the restaurants in the capital grill chain. When I arrived I was confused by the limited menu and further disappointed by the very average meal. It was only later that i learned that this is a poor imitation of the chain. I’m surprised they can get away with the mis-leading name.

We arrived about 1/2 hour late due to heavy traffic (driving in from about 2 hours away). We had tickets for a play at the neighboring Tennessee Performing Arts Center. The staff was very accommodating to insure that we were served and had ample time to enjoy our meal in time for the play. They even took the time to let us tour the "ever-famous" men's restroom, because my companion had never been there before.

The Capitol Grille never fails to deliver an exceptional meal in an elegant atmosphere. Most of the vegetables and meats are raised on their own Glen Leven farm in Middle Tennessee and the results
are fresh and satisfying. Being located in the only 5 Star hotel in Nashville (The Hermitage), this restaurant lives up to the Old World charm of its surroundings.
