Lovely dining room, and tables are responsibly distanced. Reception was warm and efficient. Service was elegant and well-paced, thank you to our gracious server and his assistant. Great wine by the glass options. Thank you for letting my family enjoy a relaxing evening together.

The wait staff are wonderful. The breakfast menu was not that extensive, the portions were small and the food was barely warm.

One of the best culinary experiences of my life. The ambiance and class of the early 20th century created a unique atmosphere of comfort and luxury. The food was delightful with each dish paying homage to southern delicacies. The Capitol Grille at the Hermitage Hotel is truly a preserved gem in our great state.

Since moving to middle Tennessee 30 years ago we have always considered the Capital Grille as our favorite and this time was no exception. The room is breathtaking, the service is outstanding and the food is delicious. I do wish today's younger generation understood what "smart casual" means. It isn't bluejeans and untucked shirts which the majority wore.

We had excellent service, which is very important. Our server gave us a delicious wine suggestion. It was something different than I had ever had in the past. I was grateful for that. I love trying new things. The food was unbelievable. I hate I didn’t have room for dessert. Maybe I’ll start with dessert next time. One of our favorite restaurants when we are in town. Fantastic!!

My wife and I stayed at the Hermitage and dined at Capital Grille. The service was impeccable. We collect a little wine so we took a couple of special bottles. From the Host to Sommelier to the Chef the service was outstanding. The Sommelier was there as needed. We asked both he and the chef to experience the wine with us and they helped with pairings and heightened the experience. The foie gras was as good as we have ever had. The filet and scallops were perfectly cooked as were the sides. The toffee pudding desert was the perfect ending to a great night.

There is definitely an older skew to the age of diners here. Nicely, the menu was innovative and fun with interesting food and flavor pairings. Prices are quite high ($18 for cocktails!), and even though all our dishes were tasty, I felt that everything was over priced. Service was slow, but understandable, with only one waiter for the entire dining room, aided by an assistant. Everything was very clean and appropriately spaced.

The food was absolutely HORRIBLE! Who puts cole slaw on top of chicken and waffles?? Ive been to a couple of Capitol Grilles and I must say this was by far the worst. I would recommend a different chef.

We were there for one of the Suffragette Teas to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. The Hermitage played as big a part in the Tennessee state legislature as the the Pro and Anti-Suffragettes. The hotel was decorated outside and in with banners, yellow roses and history exhibits. The tea was lovely with a docent to tell us about the historical events, lovely food and tea, wonderful service and social distancing that made everyone feel comfortable. We celebrated a birthday, a new baby and Women's Vote all in one afternoon. Everyone should go to The Hermitage at least once - and we are so lucky in Nashville to have it for so many occasions. The Capital Grille and the bar are famous, as is the men's restrooms.

No up to their old standards.
At least they still have cloth napkins

Food and beverage was good as usual. For a nearly empty restaurant service was sparse. Had to flag down server almost every time we needed a new drink, we had two drinks each. I don't like a server hovering over me, but a quick glance over to make sure we didn't need anything would have been common sense for a restaurant like this.

My wife and I arrived fifteen minutes before our dinner reservation and took a seat in the bar area to have a glass of wine and champagne. The server/bartender was polite and knowledgable of the products she was offering. What impressed me was after settling our bill with her, she brought back my credit card and thanked me by my name. It is always nice to be recognized. Our server in the dining room was equally polite and respectful and served us an awesome meal. We suspect that due to the covid pandemic, it was slower than normal so there were at most only three other tables being served so the ambiance, decor and hospitality of the restaurant really stood out. We definitely will be going back to the Capitol Grille.
