Superb in every way! Our server and sommelier, Roncie, was helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. The chef came to our table to chat and give additional background to our dining choices. He even included some extra vegetable that I had praised into our to go bag. Excellent touch!

Overall very good. My lady enjoyed the petite filet immensely and, while I liked the hot chicken confit, it could definitely be spicer. We both loved the redskin mash with sour cream, butter and chives was excellent!

Wonderful dining experience! Upscale and wonderfully traditional but with a modern flair. Food is locally sourced and prepared in unique and delicious ways. And the hotel itself is not to be missed, whether you stay or not. The Lobby is grand and elegant - service is impeccable!

We enjoyed everything about our experience at the Capitol Grille. After first being graciously allowed to meet upstairs in the historic lobby and learning about the hotel’s role in the Tennessee vote for procuring the right to vote for women, my school group was honored recognized at the Tennessee State Senate, just a short walk away. We followed up that visit with a lovely breakfast here at the Capitol Grille. Our server was wonderful, attending to every need. Our meal was warm, beautifully presented, and absolutely delicious. Our party particularly enjoyed the signature side dishes of grits with goat cheese and the breakfast potatoes. I also can’t say enough about the ambience. After breakfast, we took a little more time upstairs in the lobby to view and study the artifacts on display to celebrate this 100th anniversary year of the passing of the 19th amendment. Valet parking was free for the first two hours, and although we exceeded that time, we felt the $20 charge was well worth the convenience.

Should you be visiting Nashville and want to see some amazing architecture, ambience, top notch service as well as very fine cooking and presentation, do yourselves a favor and book a rez here! For interest, my wife and I had a photo shoot in the historic men's bathroom. We will definitely be going back on our next trip!

We were victims of a cold night, sitting near the door the cold air blew on us and we wished we had not checked our coats. Other than that it was perfect but that is a problem, the outside door is just up the stairs and the doors to the Grill were wide open.

We ate at the Capitol Grille three or four times while staying at the Hermitage. The breakfasts were very enjoyable. The dinner, however, was utterly disappointing. It was the far and away the most expensive dinner we had in Nashville and definitively the least tasty meal we had the whole trip. One member of our party was a vegetarian, and was served nothing that tasted as good as what we make at home. The other had the beef filet, and said any chain steak place (Mortons, Ruby's, Ruth's Chris, etc) is MUCH better. If you want to experience the history of the Hermitage, have breakfast at the Capitol Grille, but save dinner for Rolf and Daughters, which is one of the best meals we've ever had anywhere, including the Graycliff and the Chef's Table at Victoria and Albert's.

Had Valentine’s Day dinner at the Capitol Grille. Experience was a mixed bag. Ambiance was excellent as it is located in the famous Hermitage Hotel. Service was solid, but not above and beyond. Food was a mixed bag, my wife enjoyed it while I was a bit disappointed (note; I’m not big on exotic food, for example Bone Marrow). The menu was fixed for Valentine’s Day with very limited options, I generally hate this tactic. Prefer they offer you choice of a fixed menu and ordering off the regular menu. Can’t say that I felt our meal was a good value, after the mandatory / fixed 20% tip our bill for 2, with 1 glass each of Moscato, came out to almost $250. Don’t mind paying this much for a special occasion but did not feel like we got our money’s worth tonite.

I like Capitol Grille for a special lunch. It has a lovely atmosphere, it's not too noisy, and I'm able to carry on a conversation without having to talk loudly. The food is consistently good and I like that a lot of it is locally sourced.
