Enjoyed a great dinner at the Capitol Grille. Food and service were outstanding. This is in an old line Nashville hotel and the ambience reflects that. I would recommend this restaurant for a quiet dinner, either business or special occasion. Also, great wine list.

They didn’t have my reservation through open table but they still seated us. It was a set menu for Thanksgiving but it took forever to get served. It was hard to keep an 8 year old busy. Especially when she was to be served first.

Every experience we've had at Capitol Grille has been fantastic! Our only issue with this specific time was the waiter seemed rushed & frazzled. At one point my wife said he was acting as if were an inconvenience to him, which was very disappointing considering it was a special date night. Everything else was perfect as usual though!

We were seated promptly at our reservation time. Our waiter seemed to have more than he could keep up with, so we waited quite a bit for his attention. The oysters Rockefeller were delicious, salad and steak was very good, the coconut cake was lovely and huge but could have been more flavorful. It needed frosting between the layers. We enjoyed the atmosphere, but it was almost two hours for dinner. We loved the hotel and would eat here again.

The food and service from our server was wonderful! Getting to our table was a bit trickier. We arrived at 5:35 for an early dinner with no reservation, but the restaurant was fairly empty. We asked for a table for two, but the hostess and maitre’d informed us (without consulting the computer) they had no availability until 7:15. Imagine our surprise when we went outside and checked open table for nearby availability to see they had tables for 2 at Capitol Grille at 5:45, 6:00, 6:15, and so on. We clicked the 5:45 reservation and went back inside. The hostess and maitre’d both made stumbling excuses that they’d had many no shows, then avoided interacting with us for the next hour and a half even though we sat very close to their station. We were dressed appropriately for the setting and the restaurant was never too busy, so I can’t imagine why they didn’t want to seat us to begin with. We enjoyed our meal but won’t be returning to experience such rude treatment again. There are many other places we can spend such money that will happily have our business.

The Capitol Grille is in a famous landmark hotel with a first class dining room. While its a bit pricey it is excellent for special occasions. In addition, we have season tickets to the Nashville Ballet and Nashville Opera. It is perfect for an early diner before the show and a block away. Excellent Valet parking is no charge if you eat dinner there before. The Maitre D' checks in on you often to make sure everything is to your satisfaction.

Overall wonderful! But, there was a party of 8 with 5-children who were very badly behaved and nothing was said or done to quiet them. We were half way through our meal and ultimately skipped dessert because of the other table.

This restaurant thrives on its classic ambiance, and the decor of the space puts one in a good mood for quality food. The menu is sufficiently diverse to offer variety, and to my regret, I opted for the fish of the day; should have known a locavore choice would have been better because the Halibut was overcooked and dry. The chicken confit was my wife's choice, and it was a better selection, albeit spicy. Drinks were an excellent pour, and the wine list was impressive, even if a notch above price points with which I am accustomed. This is a place for a solid menu and good food, but it did not knock my socks off.
