On recommendation of a reviewer I had the onion bisque and it was fabulous. For an entree the short ribs were extremely tender and can with hot sauced grits- they were SO good. The only disappointment was the coconut cake. It looked great but was actually dry. Over all for ambiance and a lovely experience I recommend it!

Our host/server Tom was very professional, the top skills of the field. We had an absolutely delightful meal because of his gentle and knowledgeable suggestions about Hermitage's historical background and the associated farm in Henderson. He not answered our questions re the food on the menu but also helped us to order a well-round, balanced, tasty dinner. We enjoy every bite in such a lovely environment, all due to Tom's skillful hosting and serving. Please let Tom know how much we appreciate him. Thank you all, the chef, receptionist, a couple of servers replenishing our water and removing the silverware timely. What a great team with super southern hospitality. Y'all represent Nashville very well to the top. We surely will recommend our friends and family members about Capital Grille. Thanks for everything for a very special night.

This was our second visit to The Hermitage for a Sunday brunch meal. Our first visit was just 4 or 5 weeks earlier. This is just a splendid spot. We ordered Eggs Benedict and a Mushroom Omelet and it was super. For both brunches, Nathan was our waiter, and he is very attentive and just a true professional. So, GO! It’s wonderful.

Meats taste great here but they try to ruin it by putting some butter on it which makes 0 sense. Why put fat on something that already has fat in it? Some lemon would've been way better. The value proposition left something to be desired as some of the portions were quite small considering the price but it didn't feel totally unjustified.

With the Nashville, Capital Grille being located within the beautiful, historic Hermitage Hotel, it is a special dining place. Service was excellent. Thoughtful and knowledgable understanding of one of our parties specific allergies. Beef is excellent! Salmon was good and certainly tasted fresh although, the portion is smaller than what one would expect. We do not recommend the coffee after dinner. Nothing special at all! Tasted like a cup of Folgers. Cake was dry and just not special. Overall the atmosphere is special and quiet. Waitstaff attentive, Taste of the Actual Meal Food is excellent. Expect small portions and SKIP the dessert & coffee.

I first visited the Capitol Grille well over ten years ago, and was pleasantly surprised to find that the food and drink are just as phenomenal today as they were back then. On this visit, I brunched with my family and a small group of friends - I imbibed a serious Bloody Mary and simply devoured the hot chicken and waffles. That's a dish which can quite easily fall into an unpalatable cliche, but this was anything but the typical brunch fare. The Bloody Mary was mixed to perfection - reminding me why the good Lord gave us the ability to juice tomatoes - and garnished in true Southern fashion with whopping, brinily-delicious olives. The chicken thighs were crispy, well-spiced with just enough heat to warrant the "hot chicken" moniker, juicy, and as savory as a Chet Atkins guitar lick. The waffle was ironed to a perfect turn, with a delightful crunch giving way to a perfectly-fluffy interior with just the tiniest hint of wholesome maltiness. The barest hint of real maple syrup glazed the dish and added just.... enough... sweetness without cloying the flavors into submission. To risk torturing metaphor completely to death, this meal was as robust as a night at the Opry, as harmonious as the Carter Family at their peak, and - dare I say it - sexier than the Dixie Chicks at their Earl-murderin' hottest. Kudos to the chef and staff of the Capitol Grille!

The Capitol Grille in the Hermitage Hotel is a great downtown Nashville restaurant. We had brunch recently. The quality was just as good as dinner. Everything was delicious. The biscuits were light and tasty, served with Georgia peach jam, sorghum butter, and blackberry jam. The Southern Benedict was very tasty. We highly recommend Capitol Grille.

I’m not typically a complainer but I was very disappointed in this restaurant given its advertised reputation and prices. I expected excellent service and top quality food, unfortunately that’s not what we received. They need to kick it up a notch if they want to charge $95 for a steak.

This was wonderful! Our server was so friendly. The food was out of this world. The sweet onion bisque and the creamed corn were our favourites. My steak was perfectly cooked as well. This was a birthday meal for my dad and the servers brought our a pudding with candles for him - very nice touch. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

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!

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!

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!
