Wonderful atmosphere and great service! But unfortunately the food is very average. The deserts were pretty and tasteless.

We live in Nashville and decided to have a staycation. We want to experience the old and new of our home town. Capitol Grille is an iconic restaurant that fulfilled our desire to have a romantic Anniversary dinner. Our waiter, Brandon and the host were helpful and personable. The food was simple and delicious. My husband is a musician and suffers form tinnitus and hearing loss. It is important to us to find a restaurant that he is comfortable with the sound level which will allow him to comfortably converse with me. Capitol Grille allowed us to enjoy each others company without noise distraction. Thank you, CG!

Brunch with husband. Server Nathan outstanding and always available for refreshing drinks. Food was tasty: southern eggs Benedict, grits, fresh berries, confit hot chicken on waffles, and excellent Bloody Mary. Quiet atmosphere will return for brunch and dinner

First time customer and it was worth the wait! Craft cocktails were great followed by excellent eastern oysters and a shared Caesar salad made with baby gems lettuce...nice touch! We ordered the 5 oz filet and a lamb chop/sausage combo...both were delicious. The house signature dessert, coconut cake was over the top for sure. Our waiter was very attentive and when we asked to wrap up the extras for a flight home the following day, it was done with great care. Would certainly recommend this restaurant to others.

The food was below par based on reviews. We were extremely disappointed in the food quality. The Caesar salad lettuce was not crisp and fresh. The Shrimp and Grits were luke warm.

Although mgt. did correct it n a timely manner, my food entree came out cold. It was replaced with a second hot portion but it was disappointing that as I came to have an intimate dinner with my wife we ended up eating separately. Also the noise level increased continuously as we dined to a level that was not conducive to an intimate setting.

Capitol Grille is our "always" pre-TPAC dining option but is also the place to go for any and all special occasions. Food is incredible, service impeccable and diners receive the royal treatment by everyone at the Hermitage Hotel.

I visited the Capitol Grille for the very first time on 07-25-2019. Despite the hotel's history and the excellent service provided by the servers, host, and valet representatives, the restaurant food was nothing out of the ordinary. I was disappointed with the Caesar Salad and its lack of flavor or dressing. For a $12 salad plate, I was surprised to find a lot of core or butt-ends within the plate and with very little dressing. I also tried the Cioppino Seafood plate and was not impressed at all. The presentation was sloppy with an overwhelming amount of crushed tomatoes and onions. The highlight for a Cioppino stew should be focused on the protein meats and the broth. This was not the case. I was entertaining two ladies during the visit and did not want to cause an issue, so I just went with the flow.

I probably will give this restaurant another try in the future, but it won't be any time soon. One good thing is that I got to see the hotel lobby, which was impeccable.

A special place in the beautiful, historic Hermitage hotel. The service is “the best” with attention to every detail. The ingredients are locally sourced from their farm and the freshness can not be better.
Thank you !!

Everything was great except my main course, which was shrimp and grits. The shrimp came battered with the head, tail, and shell. Flavor was fine but was messy and I never think a plate should have anything on it that is not meant to be eaten.

Love the ambiance and vibe of Capitol Grille. I've been there several times for lunch and even though the food was very good on this visit, I was disappointed that we were not presented with a full LUNCH menu but a BRUNCH menu at a 12:15 reservation. We were told that they have started serving only Brunch on the weekends (this was a Saturday). In any event, our experience was excellent. Food was good even though we wanted a few more offerings and the service is always outstanding. For anyone that wants a different Nashville experience other than what is offered on lower Broadway...this is the place.

Ordered the steak and eggs breakfast meal. Steak had too much pepper on it. I was very disappointed in the coffee. It was not smooth and high in quality like I recall from my last 2 visits. The biscuits were not the same as I recall either. They were smaller which could have been fine if they were fresh and not hard. The preserves were not the same. I was disappointed that I did not receive the same preserves as I have been in the past which were berry and peach. It was my birthday and for a 5 star hotel I was very disappointed.

Our waitress kept trying to upsell us throughout the whole night to order more food. The food was very good but for the prices and word of mouth reputation I was expected food to die for and it didn't live up to that. If you are looking for a quiet, stuffy atmosphere with your grandma's decor go here.
