We visited Capital Prime for the first time to celebrate our Anniversary, based on a recommendation of our son and duaghter-in-law. The ambiance and service were top notch as the greeter, server and manager all wished us a Happy Anniversary. at our booth was a Happy Anniversary card and fresh cut flowers and the server asked if we'd like a complimentary champagne toast, which we gladly accepted. Our meals (walleye and perch) were very good also. We both started with the french onion soup as well, which was excellent. We will absolutely go back again sometime.

Wait staff was first class, from the bar to the dining room.

Mr Elliot is a real pro.

My guests for dinner were much impressed and the Scallop Rockafeller (?) appetizer was a home run.

Everything was very, very good.

We visited Capital Prime for our 25th anniversary and had a marvelous time. When I reserved the table online, I made note that we were celebrating and the table was set with flowers and card reflecting my note. 💘 Each staff member that passed, including the hostess, wished us well. Waitress was excellent and very timely with food and beverages. Great job! I would love to dine more frequently but $$$$ would dictate only on special occasions for our budget.

The food was subpar at best. Having eaten at the capital grille many times, I thought it would be similar but the quality did not match up at all. Very disappointing for the amount of money spent.

First of all the service was outstanding, especially these days when places tend to be short staffed. Husbands steak was cooked perfectly, my sea bass was very good also. West coast oysters very good. The mussels were the only thing that we would really mark down, they were a little tough, chewy and lacked on flavor, but they weren’t horrible. Just not that great. The sauce/broth they were served in was nice and flavorful. Both had wine with dinner and was very good. Place was clean, restrooms were also clean and lighting in the dining room was perfect. Haven’t been there since pre covid. Would definitely return soon. Again, service was spectacular.

As usual we all enjoyed different entrees. I had the crab risotto and it was so good! The walleye, which I often get, was another entree that was selected and it was delicious too! My husband raved about his rib eye, and another in our group had the fish kabobs. We had a wonderful time and our server was polite and efficient!
We will be back again in the future!

Amazing breakfast! I got the breakfast burrito bowl. Came with a large portion- enough that I was full when I left and had plenty left to bring home. Not crazy expensive either. Would love to come back.

Service was prompt upon arrival and waitstaff was pleasant. Water was brought to our table quickly.

We were brought 2 small portions of bread which resembled something I purchase from the local grocery store.

Our order was taken and salads delivered and enjoyed. Entrees consisted of a 8 oz Salmon and a chicken pasta dish. Both were acceptable in flavor and presentation. We did order a carrot cake for desert which was a generous portion, half of which we took home.

Bottom line- for $100 for 2 people, food was good but not exceptional. Service was polite and courteous but not remarkable. For the money, we would have expected much more. More than likely, we will not return.

My wife’s 8ounce filet was perfect but my rib eye had a lot of grizzle and made it tough to eat. Our waiter left in the middle of our order and the servers who took over were very good. French onion soup was excellent and the steaks were cooked perfect. Hopefully this will be a one time glitch

Service was good and extremely attentive. Noise level was so high in the place it was difficult to even have a conversation over the cacophony of noise, and it could definitely benefit from the application or use some sound reduction materials. Food was OK, but overpriced for the quality. For example, higher priced dry-aged steak arrived overcooked, bland and dry tasting. In addition, the Signature shrimp appetizer was chewy and greasy. On the other hand, both of the soups we had were extremely good, but not really what you go to a steakhouse for, if you know what I mean.

The Women that came to the table were polite, the Male…not so much. I had my credit card on the table and he grabbed it without even bringing the bill or asking. He reached across the table to do so. The food presentation was beautiful however our steaks were cooked medium rare as I asked for medium well.

Great service. Steaks were cooked as requested. Unfortunately the quality of my New York Strip was below expectations. It was not the chef but whoever selected the meat.
The moose for dessert was team with a little bit of chocolate moose.
