I have dined at a few Capital Grille locations. I had high expectations and my expectations were not met. While the service was very good, the food was note up to my prior experiences with Capital Grille. Caesar Salad was pre-made and had a very plain dressing. There were not may steak offerings. The Strip steak, I chose, was cooked to temperature, but not season well. While the had a extended wine list, it was very overpriced.

Gorgeous place that I've been to a few times before, but we (party of 4) were seated at 6 25 and had to cancel our food order because we didn't receive it by 7 40, and had a 8 pm show to catch. No contact from the wait staff until we initiated it.

We visit this restaurant a few times per year, often before a show at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center. On prior occasions, the service had been good. Saturday night something happened in the kitchen, and we almost missed the curtain even though we had allowed two and a quarter hours for dinner. The manager did comp some of our food, but it was a disconcerting experience to be so rushed.

Been to many Capital Grilles around the country. While I know this is not a part of that chain and they take pride in that, I unfortunately don't believe the restaurant is quite as good as the chain restaurants. The atmosphere is good as well as the service but the food was a bit underwhelming. If you are attending TPAC for an event, very convenient.

 (Birmingham)·Dined on November 16, 2017

Rabbit biscuits were good but cornbread not biscuits. Fillet was good. Atlantic salmon was tasteless. Server said it was wild but that is highly suspect. However, the worst part was that the server never checked on us after the appetizer was delivered. Never asked how the food was even when dropping off the check. No pleasantries whatsoever - completely checked out but was working other tables.

Over priced and under whelming. Steaks were overdone for medium. Salmon was average. Scallops were good. With everything ala carte this one stung. Don't mind paying it if phenomenal. This was not. House cab sav was very good though. Took a while for our food and then had to ask for bill to get to a show. Was not worth it.

I was very disappointed this is not The Capitol Grill that is in Washington DC and other large cities. This is The Capitol Grill down the street from the Capitol, a big difference. The food was over priced. The only bread offered was cold. Service was very slow and not very attentive. I had a drink at the Oak Bar and was charged an additional $2.00 for a dry cocktail. So you pay an additional $2.00 not to get your drink watered down. $16.00 cocktail. Back in the day this may have been the place to go but there are many restaurants that offer better food and service at these prices.

This was a classy restaurant with decent food, however, not sure it was worth the money. Despite arriving at 6pm for an early dinner it took quite a while for the server to acknowledge us , our apps came out at different times and the steaks were a little overdone. All in all a nice place but I think it needs to up its game if it wants regulars instead of people passing through Nashville given the prices.

It just so happens we were seated in the oak bar which was perfectly fine. We had lunch reservations prior to going to the theater at 1 o’clock. When we arrived, it took quite a while just to get water as they were short on staff. Once we got our food we were quite rushed on time. However, everyone was quite friendly and I understand things happen. I will certainly dine there again as I’m sure next time will be better.

It took over an hour for them to bring out the food. Did not bring a bread basket until we asked for it. The bearnaise sauce had no tarragon. The Brussels sprouts were under done. The steak was very tasty.
Not impressed overall.

This is a grand old room with elegant huge pictures of Nashville landmarks. It was really quiet on Sunday night - 5 tables. Too bad the fried tomatoes and soup came out cold, 25 minutes to get a drink order of aged bourbon, and lots of time and inefficiencies of the serving, and getting the check ( had to ask for the dessert menu).. They had plenty of staff for the number of people, they just didn't seem to know what they are doing . Dinner was e hours. The ingredients, aged beef, mustard greens were really good. The upstairs parlor is very elegant.

We had reservations at 6:45. Ordered quickly.
Food served 8:40.
Fried chicken too spicy for our friends. Hot chicken.
Our $70 aged steak had fat, Friddell and less then 1/2 inch.
Oysters were not tasted, all crust.
Horrible experience with out of town guests.
$400 plus bill.

Had dinner here with two friends. Fancy, with a price tag to match, but we knew that going into it. Service was awesome. One of my friends has dietary restrictions and they went out of their way to accommodate her. Food was excellent. Only negatives were that they ran out of scallops after we had ordered so we had to change our entrees. They compensated with a complimentary dessert for each of us. One of my friends had a steak that was too rare and had to be sent back and soup that was lukewarm. On the other hand the oyster appetizer was scrumptious, as were the grits, brussel sprouts and mahi mahi special.

We just got engaged and they were happy to have us celebrate with them. My sister in law called and asked them to have roses and champagne at the table when we arrived. They had the table ready. They provided a nice table. The food was good even though we were still trying to soak in the engagement . Lori was our waitress and she was always smiling and offered to take pictures. She made sure the champagne kept flowing. The manager came over and took picture and printed it out and framed it. The hotel is also beautiful. I loved the classic bathrooms. Definitely worth checking out bathrooms even if you do not need to use it.

Bread and wine was immediate to our table, but It took 20 minutes for our salads. Once our salad plates were removed, it took a further 45 minutes to get a 6oz and a 10oz fillet to our table. The restaurant was only half full so maybe the kitchen had to butcher the cow out back. Whatever the reason, no recompense was offered us other than one “I’m sorry” from our waiter. A very poor experience for a $400 meal for my wife and me. We will not be beck anytime soon due to this poor kitchen service.

I was humiliated over this business meal as the location was my recommendation. After a very lengthy wait, when our meal finally arrived it was beyond cold. It was by far the worst meal & service I’ve ever experienced in my 25 year career entertaining customers. This will not only be my last trip to this location, but any of their locations. Beyond disappointed!!

Kitchen was off .. 45 min to get appetizers... ran out of “normal menus”. Had to make photo copies of the menu. My steak was undercooked and cold but I ate it anyway, with fear that if I sent it back it would never return.
general manager apologized for the crazy situation
This was a business dinner with a customer. Everyone commented that this wasn’t the Capitol Grill that we normally experience. Unfortunate and disappointing.
Thank God the wine was great!

Major disappointment. Don't order the Eggs Benedict. The hollandaise sauce did not taste like anything we have ever had and we have been eating eggs benedict for decades. Original server was excellent, but when she had to suddenly leave, the back-up server totally ignored us. Would not recommend to anyone.

Found this WONDERFUL restaurant quite by accident and am SO SO HAPPY that I did.....FANTASTIC food and presentation ! The cuisine and wait staff was worthy of any 5 star restaurant. I was visiting from Phoenix and only wish it was close to me as I would be a regular. Started the meal with FRIED OYSTERS........WOW WOW WOW, WONDERFUL. All entrees my party had were outstanding ( Filet, Shrimp, Salmon) with a freshness that was superb. I especially liked the southern addition of grits ( fantastic) . All of us ordered a slice of the COCONUT CAKE , mine with a scoop of delicious ( seeminly homemade) vanilla ice cream.....could have shared this, but it was such a rtreat. Great wine selections. A MUST VISIT if you go to Nashville, FOR SURE!

 (Hawaii)·Dined on October 14, 2017

We ate here on Saturday prior to seeing a show at TPC. When I made the reservation I noted we were going to a show and the staff acknowledged this when they called to confirm the reservation. We were seated immediately and our waiter appeared and took our drink orders. And then disappeared. It took a long time for the drinks to arrive and for him to return to take our orders. This was the theme the whole evening. Long gaps in service. Near the end of the meal he asked if we wanted dessert. I mentioned we needed to get to a show and he said he knew which was why he was asking us while we were still eating. Then they brought the dessert while our dinner plates were still on the table and did not clear them. We had to push them away to reach the shared dessert. It was just odd in that the waiter's demeanor was very officious. The food was good but not exceptional. I think there are plenty of other places in Nashville that have excellent food and much better service. The location is ideal in terms of attending a TPAC event but again, there are other restaurants that are also close to theater.

 (New Orleans)·Dined on October 14, 2017

Overall, a nice experience. I had seen several spotty reviews about service, especially related to timing; I allowed plenty of time. The venue is very traditional and beautiful. I dined alone, and was concerned about that, given some restaurants do not give the best service (in my experience, and as reported by others) to a woman dining alone. The greeter was pleasant and welcoming. My server seemed very distant, and it took some effort on my part (it seemed) for him to "warm up" to me being there.

I ordered a cocktail and later the soup. The soup came before the cocktail, and did not include bread, though all of the other tables did have bread served with the appetizer or before the main entree. I asked for bread. The entree came before the bread. The soup was good, but not outstanding, though it is considered their signature.

The food was very good, and it was served in a large portion. Had I not been going to the theatre afterward, I would have taken 1/2 of it home. I had the grilled salmon over Brussels sprout slaw and fingerling potatoes. Everything was very good and the presentation was lovely.

I would return for a special event, but - to be honest - I would request a different waitstaff if the one I had was assigned. Having a more helpful, interested and attentive server would have made a positive difference.

We were given quite the treat at The Hermitage Hotel. The service was excellent, we were allowed to eat quietly, undisturbed, and it was a dining experience. No one was in a rush to move us along. The server knew the menu well, and guided us along as we needed it. The food and drinks were incredible. Not only were were pleased with the experienced, but we were fully satisfied with every aspect of our dining experience, which is rare in the Nashville area.

 (Washington DC)·Dined on October 7, 2017

We were seated promptly. However waited a while before the waiter came to take our order. We ordered crab cake appetizer, stake (medium-well), roasted hen. Waited a while before the appetizer arrived. The crab cake were almost burnt at the surface and was not even warm on the inside. Looked like a frozen patty that was broiled frozen!!! We notified the waiter about this and he took the plate back.

After a longer wait our main dishes were served. The steak was bloody pink far from medium-well cooked order. We tried to draw the waiter’s attention to get the steak cooked. It took him 15 plus minutes to come to our table. By that time I was done with my dinner eating the sides. He took the steak back. This was a very disappointing Dunning experience as far as the food quality and service is concerned. The waiter was nice enough to take these items off of our check.

I took my daughters to a show at TPAC and this place was in very close proximity so it worked out nicely in that regard. Our wait for our food was extremely long however. We had a 615 reservation time and we didnt even get our drinks until about 645 and had to wait until then to place our food order, because our waitress didnt come back to check on us until then. We didnt get any bread until AFTER our entree arrived and managed to barely make our show at 800 that night. We got the hot fried chicken, which was still pink on the inside but our waitress said that that was normal for grass fed chickens (maybe so but the ones I make at home thats not the case). For the cost, this trip was NOT worth it and we were highly disappointed leaving there. It was supposed to be a special occasion for my girls and I and now we are just going to remember how long we had to sit and wait.

Very consistent and overall excellent. A few misses - we sat in the bar for 10 minutes and no one noticed us so we left and were seated. Great server and attention before it got crowded, then service suffered - they staff for the average not the peaks. Couldn't meet with the somalier because he was too busy. Really? So not 5 stars but still overall enjoyable and very good.
