The Capital Grille is a beautiful high-end dining experience with a georgeous dining room. The arched ceiling is unique and the service is among the best I’ve ever had. Perfect for special occasions.

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!

Lovely ambiance and excellent service from the Maitre D to the server to the other staff. I was disappointed in the watery and not very flavorful taste of the onion bisque, and the presentation of our lunch entrees. The best part was the coconut cake, which made the meal a success.

Great food - and you pay for it - but if you want great prime beef - its tops.
Server was very attentive - but needed to speak up - We could not hear him so well. Apps / salads/ sides were all great!

Finally the only negative thing has Nothing to do with Capitol Grill - Rather Open Table itself - Later in the evening past dinner, Open Table sent an obnoxious and accusatory email stating that I did not show up for the reservation when we did - in fact we were 15 minutes early. Annoyed me to the point where I think I'll just go the old fashion way and call the restaurant for a reservation rather then use this stealthy web service that usurps its way in to online restaurant searches and reservations. - Really O. T. !!!! before you insult your users, better get the fact straight. Apology email was sent the next day that did not measure up to the offense. #avoidopentable

Service and ambiance are top shelf. The food was good, but not really all that special. I had salmon with collards and squash for the sides. The salmon was a very modest portion, but perfectly prepared. The sides were disappointing. The collards were mostly onions, ham, pepper(?) and other things with very little actual collard greens. The flavor was okay, but I would have preferred to have more greens. The squash side appeared to be just chunks of squash with brown sugar on them. Not very creative and not very appealing. The warm biscuit and cornbread muffins that arrived before the meal were perfect. They are served with softened butter that is easy to spread.

The Capital Grille and the Hermitage are really neat places to visit. The atmosphere and service are outstanding. However, for the price point they charge, I expected better food. Sperry's in Bell Meade or Cool Springs are better options.

I was most impressed with the young doorman. Having left my credit card in my already parked vehicle he swiftly retrieved my belongings and presented them to me. He treated me like royalty! He was on during the 11 o’clock hour and must have left shortly there after. When I retrieve my car, I wanted to tip him and praise him for his good deeds but he was gone. Consequently I tipped the new doorman wishing him a merry Christmas. Please relay my sentiments to that young man!

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.
