Don't bother with the prime meats. They are overpriced. My filet was dry and tasteless.

The food was way over priced. The vegetables were steamed to mush. The steak had absolutely no flavor and was tough. Would not go there again.

We got seated in the back part ( not as nice looking)
Steak was undercooked per my request. Could tell the grill was too hot. Crispy outside too red of middle.

It was neat but for the money I think better food can be found elsewhere.

This is the second or third time I have been there. I have to admit it’s very good. My only issue was with the Ahi tuna appetizer That had cucumber and a few other things in it. To be quite honest it was a cucumber appetizer with a very very small amount of tuna in it. I seriously doubt they were 2 tablespoons of tuna in it. So that was disappointing. The rest of the meal however was excellent. My suggestion to the chef is to put more tuna in the appetizer so that you can actually see the tuna and not just cucumber

Wow!! Capital Vine's fall-themed brunch specials on 9/27 were simply amazing. The assorted apple pastries and the french toast were to die for. What a wonderful experience!

Celebrating the kids return to MSU. 5 people and they messed up 2 of the 5 entrees. 20 additional minutes later and finally everyone received their entrees. Food was good but overall bill for 5 people with tip was over $500 with moderate drinks orders. Not the value, service or food I’d expect at those prices.

We were given a gift card for Capital Prime and used it for dinner on our anniversary. We were greeted at the door and wished a happy anniversary by the hostess and taken to our table. The table was set and had a card and roses. Our server, Mike, was prompt and offered us a complimentary champagne cocktail. We ordered an appetizer and steaks. The food was very good. Mike was attentive and we never had to wait on anything. Everyone was very nice and we would go there again for a special occasion.

Our whole experience was perfect! Appetizer: Portabella & Tenderloins was so good. The server recommended the bone in ribeye and I have to say it was the best I have ever had. As for dessert, the carrot cake was delicious and more than enough to share.

Sea bass was in a crab risotto that was to die for. Walleye was excellent and the portion was huge. Server was well trained and even knew how to open and serve a bottle of wine which is unusual in Lansing. Wine list is good. We sat outside and they have a great patio.

This is one of our favorite restaurants - the food is always good - but there was something off this day - lots of salt on things, the butter, a whole bowl of salt under the Scallops Rockefeller, could have been a bit better - and we will be back!

Responded on July 28, 2020

Good Afternoon JimA, I am so glad that we are one of your favorite restaurants to dine at as we love having you here! I am sorry about the salt on the butter, it is meant go well with the bread, but will ensure that it is corrected if there is too much. The salt under the Scallop Rockefeller dish is for decoration and to prevent the shells from sliding off. It is not meant to be consumed. I apologize for the misunderstanding. Thank you and look forward to seeing you again Ryan General Manager
