A truly wonderful restaurant in an amazing hotel. The adjacent bar and lounge are also top flight. Our meal (mussels and fries) were outstanding. Our breakfast the next morning was equally outstanding. Nathan our server is a "keeper" although the entire staff must have been hand-selected for us. We will be back. Only complaint is a slightly pricy wine list.

Celebrating daughter's 20th birthday in her favorite Nashville restaurant in her favorite Nashville hotel.
Could not have asked for a better experience. The staff was attentive but not overbearing. So refreshing to see professionals that know the proper etiquette for serving. All details for her birthday dinner were done perfectly down to the dessert presented to her for her special occasion.

We had Thanksgiving Brunch at the Capitol Grille, and I had lofty expectations. And, I’m happy to report, it exceeded my expectations! It was an amazing buffet with absolutely superior service. This was one of the best meals I’ve had. We will definitely do again for a special occasion.

Brought my mother for her Birthday, the restaurant is beautiful and the food was delicious. Our waiter was amazing, he knew we were in a bit of a hurry due to going to TPAC for a show and was very prompt.

Disappointing dinner. First, despite a reservation and a half-empty room (on a Saturday night), we had to wait 10 minutes for our table. While my wife liked her salmon, the $60 ribeye I got was so fatty, I left half of it on the plate. For a restaurant that prides itself on its meats, the cut served to me was no better that I'd get at Outback. After the bill included two items we didn't order, it was clear that Capitol Grille was nowhere near the four diamonds they got from AAA.

The ambience, food, wine, decor, staff, cleanliness and service was all exceptional! What the chef did with brussel sprouts was almost sinful, never mind the protein and appetizers! Was our favourite meal experience that we had in Nashville and will definitely go back!

This was our 4th time at Capitol and the other 3 times before were amazing. This time the service was slow parts of my wifes food were cold and my steak was not cooked the way I had asked for it. Not going to say we will never be back but we are going to try other places first.

Food was excellent - Scallops, carpaccio, onion bisque and Hallibut dishes were all top notch. My guest also enjoyed the desserts. Service was also excellent. Great for dinner before a TPAC show. Pricey, but high quality.

I HAVE VISITED THE CAPITOL GRILLE TWICE. THE FIRST TIME WAS WONDERFUL, NO COMPLAINTS! I HAD THE WATERMELON SALAD, LAMB CHOPS AND MAC N CHEESE. EVERYTHING WAS EXCEPTIONAL. IN FACT, I ORDERED THE EXACT SAME THING THE SECOND TIME I VISITED. THE WATERMELON SALAD WAS STILL WONDERFUL BUT THE LAMB CHOPS TASTED SOUR. I TOOK TWO BITES AND WASNT ABLE TO EAT ANYTHING ELSE. HORRIBLE. THE MAC N CHEESE TASTED AS IF IT HAD BEEN REHEATED. HORRIBLE, ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING THAT THE TICKET WAS OVER $100. I WILL NOT BE BACK.

I had had an impromptu meeting at this hotel and was impressed by the interior decorations and architecture. The person I met with spoke highly of the main restaurant, so I changed my reservation to dine here with customers.

I would say that everything was very good for a business dinner with 6 people. Service, Food, Ambiance and noise level were very good.

My only 2 points for improvement were:
1) cocktail preparation time:
5 of us ordered cocktails from their flyer. They took 20 minutes or more to be delivered - too slow when the dining room was not busy.
2) definition of “family style”: the group ordered 4 “Sides”. When the waiter asked if I would like them served family style I said yes, thinking that they would be placed in the middle for everyone to take what they’d like. I was surprised at how large the plates were, but thought it was possible that their sides were this size. When the bill came I was unpleasantly surprised to see that our 4 orders ($8 each?) had grown to $27 each and 6 of us could only eat less than half of what was served.

Why do wait staff not guide guests to maintain a reasonable amount of food? It’s just ridiculous to have them encourage everyone to order a side when one is enough to feed 2 or more people.

The night before, at a different restaurant, my “individual” wedge salad turned out to be an entire head of lettuce! Who eats an entire head of lettuce? No one should, unless it’s the only thing you may have ordered.

I do recommend this restaurant highly, but be clearer and reasonable on what you encourage your guests to order.

Good over priced. Ordered the lamb chops and the side that came with the meal was so salty that you couldn't eat it. Lamb chops were fatty but cooked well. Ok experience but would suggest to try another spot in Nashville before this.

Have eaten at this as well as many other Capitol Grilles and had always been very pleased. This visit was with my family to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. We went for brunch because a friend stated it was one of the best in Nashville. Out of a party of 8 only two had no complaints. Three ordered the food to be prepared to there liking which was totally ignored. Others had food that was served cold. Totally disappointed. Will probably eat there again as we like to stay at the Hermitage but never for brunch. A total disappointment.

Cuban sandwich meat was extremely tough. Not easy to eat. Brisket Hash was potatoes. Very little meat and rather one note. Atmosphere was great and server was really nice but based on food, it was disappointing. We have been here before and the food was okay, not today. Expected more for such a nice place.

My husband and I dined here for our 29th anniversary on Saturday Oct 12, 2019. I ordered a fillet medium. My fillet came rare, which the waiter confirmed. I waited 20 min for my fillet to come back, & it was then well done. Did not send it back, due to my husband was finished with his dinner by that time. Also while we were trying to enjoy our dinner, the wait staff was clearing & undressing all the unoccupied tables around us & the other guests. This was at 8 pm in the evening. It was rude, & not very nice to see this on a Saturday evening while we are eating & trying to enjoy our dinner. Dinner was not inexpensive, our bill was $239.00. We don't expect perfection, & we dine at upscale restaurants frequently. To have this kind of service at a fine restaurant at the Hermitage Hotel is unexceptable. We do not live in Nashville, nor travel here often. But we would never recommend this restaurant to further guests.

Prefer the Capital grill to the Captiol Grill. Small menu with no potatoes as forgot to add to menu.
