bread was average, ceaser salad was crisp and presented well but the dressing seemed a little watered down, steak was good ( but not in the very good category ) which is what i was hoping for, side dishes we're by far the best ( in the excellent range ), service and ambiance were excellent

We were there for brunch before a play and arrived and were seated at 11:15. It took 70 minutes to get our food and it was cold. In addition we had to eat it fast because we were running out of time. Very beautiful environment but terrible service.

My last review of The Capital Grille was a bad one. I’d had a terrible experience one night last year, and used this forum to vent. However, the meal I had last week was a delight, with unequalled service! And, truthfully, this is more typical of The Grille, and the Hermitage Hotel. This wonderful gem of Nashville brings you back to a time of gentility and hospitality. I recommend everyone visit this beautiful hotel and restaurant when in downtown Nashville. The food was very good, well prepared and presented. One small discomfort was the fact that our party was seated by the kitchen door, but that was my fault for not telling the host that one member of our party would not make it, so we were seated at a larger table that happened to be by the kitchen. Try this restaurant. You will be glad you did!

The food and service were superb. The 6 oz filet was tender and delicious and the mac and cheese was the perfect side dish. The Hermitage cannot be beat if you want to celebrate a special occasion. Even the coffee was absolutely delicious.

The Capitol Grille is a great place for a civilized lunch or dinner in a bustling Nashville.From the uniformed doorman to the calm,quiet downstairs room it was a lovely experience.It is not cheap but the food was delicious, the service impeccable and the ambiance from another less hectic time.And the Oak Bar is famous for a place to go for a bite and cocktail before or after a performance at TPAC

The restaurant had only one other guest seated at 7 pm. They attempted to seat us at a table right next to that party! Why?! We requested and were given a different table. Our server did an excellent job - attentive without being intrusive. 2 of 4 steaks were prepared properly, one slightly overcooked and one was not up to appropriate temperature. Was sent the undercooked steak back to kitchen and it returned to table a bit over cooked, but acceptable. Side dishes were good. For dessert, we ordered apple cobbler, which was excellent. However the chocolate cake and coconut cream cakes were dry. Overall, the meal and dining experience was disappointing for the price.

Attended for Christmas Eve dinner. It was a three course price fix menu. This was a surprise to me as I had called beforehand to insure that they offered their normal menu and not price fix for the holiday. Regardless, the selections for the $77 menu per person were all very rich and no vegetarian options. The service was excellent, but probably won't return since the menu was on the heavy side and prices are hefty. If you are a meat lover and are prepared to pay a high end bill, you will be satisfied.

The hotel history makes up for a fairly average meal. The best parts of the menu were side items. The meat and fish were nothing special. Dessert wasn’t that interesting. It’s kind of hard to enjoy at 8;30 pm when the tables are empty and all flowers are being removed.
Should we leave? I guess so. It’s very pricy and I would recommend just having a drink in bar.

Been here several times but service, food and ambiance was way off. Took daughter & son in law for dinner for the first time before a show at Ryman and it was definitely not near as good as it has been the many times we have been before. Was disappointed for sure. Oysters were burned & okra undercooked. Salad & bread good (that's all I got to enjoy). Husbands petit filet was good and daughters crab cake good. Not one to complain and still left a very nice tip but since you sent this questionnaire, I thought I should let you know.

I would love to give this restaurant a raving review, but due to the terrible service, I just can't. Let me say that when the food did finally arrive, it was excellent. Hot and fresh and delicious. Unfortunately, it was a full hour from the time we arrived until any food was delivered to us. At no time did the server approach us and let us know that she knew it was taking too long and she was very sorry. In fact, on two occasions, she came over and told us it was being prepped and would be right out, and then another 20 minutes passed before the food was actually delivered. By the time the food was brought out, we were all irritable and terribly hungry.
At the end of the meal, our server informed us that they were waiving all beverage charges, which amounted to $20 or so off of the bill. I appreciated it, but a sincere acknowledgment of the problem during the wait would have gone a lot farther and reflected much better on the establishment. My take away is that this restaurant is in dire need of a management overhaul. We were obviously not the only table that was experiencing this issue, and the restaurant was not completely full. I won't be back soon.

The service was lacking during this visit. For a beautiful restaurant and hotel I would have expected more. After our food was served we did not see the server until we were ready to leave. We were there for brunch and our toast was served dry with no offerings of butter or jam, etc... No one ever came by the table to check and see how the food was and if we needed anything. We were on a limited schedule and did not have time to track down the server. The same thing was going on at every table. I feel like they need to hire additional servers in order to take care of guests.

We usually enjoy brunch at the Capitol Grille before the Nutcracker at TPAC. Unfortunately this time our waitress was very unattentive to our table. We got there earlier than the brunch rush, and we know that it can get busy in there, but the tables on either side of us were being managed quite well by another waiter, so it wasn't because it was particularly busy. After taking our order and plating our meals, she pretty much never came back, never asked us if we needed anything else, never followed up on an item that we told her was forgotten, so we never received it. We had to flag down another waiter to get her to return after waiting a long time for the forgotten item, and also waited a long time for our check. At the end of the meal, she did let me know that I wouldn't have to pay for the forgotten item...??? Like I ever thought I would, since we didn't get it? If she would've just once apologized for the lapse in service, all would be okay. Never got that either. Oh, well.

We went for our anniversary. The waitstaff was pleasant and the ambience was nice, but it was overrun with theater goers and ballet goers and our waiter asked us if we were headed anywhere at a certain time. I should’ve just lied and said yes, because we were completely put on the back burner after that. We’d ordered a $100 bottle of wine that wasn’t even brought to the table until halfway through our entreé. It was fine. The food was good. It was absolutely NOT worth the $250+ we paid for the meal. We won’t be back for dinner.

This was one of those fine, old time Nashville establishments.

A pleasant surprise, but patrons should be aware that you won't find the famous Capital Grille steak au poive or the calamari with cherry peppers on the menu.
