Wonderful farm to market ingredients served by well-trained staff. Dishes were very tasty but the portions were bit small. Prices were reasonable considering the quality of the food and their reputation. The restaurant is especially suitable for business dinners. Highly recommended.

The food & ambience were great the service was disappointing. We waited over 20 minutes between appetizers and the entrees. The table next to us, with a larger party arrived after we received our appetizers but got their entrees before us. I hope this is an anomaly.

Excellent service from the valet attendants walking us to the door with umbrellas in the pouring rain, to the wait staff attending to our every need! The food was superb and the portions were generous. I especially enjoyed the bread pudding with whiskey sauce! Looking forward to my next visit!!

It does not get much better than the Capitol Grille at the Hermitage Hotel. The food and service are outstanding, only outdone by the ambiance of this historic venue. It's a must visit for locals and visitors.

The historic hotel and restaurant are beautiful. The service was outstanding. While the food was good and prepared very well, the menu choices were a little disappointing and prices are very high. There was nothing special on the menu and I feel like you can get a similar menu in a more reasonable restaurant.

This was our second time dining here. Our first experience was amazing: excellent service, wonderful food, everything top-notch. Our second, most recent visit left a little to be desired. The hostess seemed a little put out, barely greeting us and seeming annoyed I asked for a brunch menu instead of breakfast when she showed us our table (we were asked last time which we preferred). Our server was MIA for a long time before taking our order, then seemed like he wasn't familiar with the menu at all (we had to specify that we picked a side, as he didn't ask). He was nice, and it seemed like perhaps a first-job situation, but it still left us feeling a little flat about the experience. Overall, we'll give them another try, but I hope our amazing first visit was the norm, not a fluke.

The Capitol Grill is always one of my favorite restaurants in downtown Nashville. We especially enjoy dining there either before or after a performance at TPAC. On this occasion, we went for brunch before a Sunday Matinee. The menu was varied and provided excellent choices for both omelette lovers and those who prefer the sweeter side of brunch. The service was impeccable, again as always which makes diners feel special. This is a restaurant I often recommend to friends.

The service was extremely slow to deliver cocktails. 45 mins after ordering we were asking our waiter....where are the drinks?? He said that the bar was running slow. We were there on the same day as our governor was inaugurated. We beat the crowd but got stuck in the orders of other patrons. Lovely atmosphere. Just be prepared to be patient.

Lovely setting-one of the few remaining white tablecloth experiences in Nashville. Expensive. Acceptable wines at a premium price. Food quality can be uneven-especially with seafood/fish dishes (they are generally overcooked-have had scallops and salmon there and both were overdone). Beet salad was delicious. An acceptable experience.

The service was wonderful and our waiter was excellent. The glass with my wine had a crack at the top. He took off the charge even though I didn’t ask. Very nice. Unfortunately my guest had the short rib and it was so tough she could eat very little of it. Then it made her sick later that evening. We didn’t say anything to the server at the time. My salmon was excellent

Not the restaurants fault but this place is not “The Capital Grill”, this place is “Capitol Grille”. This place was good but It felt very overpriced considering that the capital Grille is actually cheaper and in my opinion has better food. The other thing I noticed that was a little odd was the size of the menu selections. There just wasn’t many things to pick from. The wine selection and service were however amazing.

We walked into the restaurant @ 6:30 pm. It was 20% full. They initially sat us at a small table but since it was abandoned we were moved to a larger table. We ordered 2 Old Fashions and were surprised that it had no Maraschino Cherry which is an important part of the drink. Then the waiter brought us some "fancy" cherries but they were still not maraschino. My wife ordered a Wedge salad that was pitiful. Made with a non-creamy vinaigrette dressing with very little Blue cheese, Bacon and it was lacking any chunks of cheese or bacon. I ordered the Beef short ribs and Brussels Sprouts. it was overcooked and Bad. It looked like something you would serve a dog. The entire bill was $90. We had bread plated and knives on our table but we were neither given any or offered any. Elegant room but horrible food.

What an awesome way to bring in the New Year !!!! - The seven course meal was outstanding and our waiter Thomas was just perfection. The chef's presentation of each course was inspiring - I am actually still trying to figure out how to make the soup it was like eating a cloud.

We closed out the restaurant and sang "auld lang syne" with the band ...[of course we all had our phones open with the words] . To be greeted by the display of fireworks at the capital. This is my third time at the Capital Grill as a newcomer to Tennessee and it goes down as my favorite restaurants and of course a special place to bring good friends and enjoy an awesome meal.

This was their New Years Eve fixed menu dinner. The service was excellent! However, the food was mediocre at best and certainly not worth the $100 price per person. The scallop dish had flavors that did not seem to go together and smelled less than fresh. My steak was about the size of 1.5 quarters put together. The desert was the highlight and excellent!
