    When I made our reservation I checked we were celebrating my birthday. My birthday was not mentioned by our server. I was too full for a desert but, if I checked off celebrating my birthday, it should have been recognized. When I walked into the restaurant, there were 3 female employees standing around what I guessed was the hostess desk. No one said hello or welcome. It was hard to tell it was actually the hostess desk. I felt like I was in the wrong place. Felt very uncomfortable by the looks of the employees faces. I felt one actually stared me down. Food came out hot the way I like it. They fries were undercooked. Don’t think I’ll be going back anytime soon.

    Very good service from Kyle. Capital burger is outstanding. I added mushrooms to make it even better. Appetizers are under represented. There should be some more options like a shrimp dish or hot dips (crab and/or spinach artichoke). Desserts also need an upgrade. Otherwise if you want a good drink and a great burger this is your place

    Excellent meal, atmosphere. Ate at high tops in bar area Sunday lunch. Server was distracted, slow, missing items on burger. Couldn't point them out since he was running around. Hostess tried to help by bringing drinks. However, he took a long time to greet us to start order. Might not return. Enjoy capital grille.

    First time diner at Cap Burger. Was not expecting much, just an upscale burger place and that's pretty much what you get. I didn't put two and two together but Cap Burger is affiliated with one of my favorite steak house chains (Capital Grille). One I learned that, I became more disenchanted with my experience at Cap Burger. You need to know that we dined on Christmas Eve while staying at the Hyatt before visiting relatives. I'm sure their staffing was a bit challenged that night, but there were very few people in the dining room and our waitress seemed disinterested in my wife and I. The burgers we had (Capital Classic and Veggie) were both delicious, and the Tuna Poke app was phenomenal, but all the food arrived at the same time! There was not enough room on our small two top to fit it all along with drinks. And, I guess the thing that really put me off from the start was a terrible Old Fashioned with smoked bacon infused bourbon. I mean, what can't be improved with smoked bacon? I think the concept was fine, but the execution tasted lousy! The evening just went downhill from there. All in all, I will dine at Cap Burger again, but with a different set of expectations.....

    Best burger in town! This is my second time here, in only 2 weeks because I couldn’t get the amazing juicy burger out of my mind. I’ve had the capital burger and the bacon burger - both awesome. Great service, and nice, casual vibe. We ate in the bar area at the high tops, with friends and had a great time. We’re well taken care of.

    I was on travel so I was really looking forward to trying this restaurant. I had a reservation for Friday night, which I highly recommend since the place was packed at 6:30 pm. The restaurant was extremely loud and the hostess was about to seat me at a table right next to a family with children who were screaming and running around. While I totally understand kids will be kids and it’s family dinner time, I had to ask her to sit me at a table away from them. The service was horrible. It took close to 20 minutes for my server to come by and introduce herself and take my order. I ordered the pretzel with the cheese dip. As an appetizer I ordered the pretzel had great texture but lacked flavor. The cheese dip was very creamy and quite good. I ordered Capital Burger with truffle fries. The burger lacked any seasoning. The truffle fries had no truffle flavor (just some Parmesan on the top). I asked if the had horseradish/mayo steak sauce (thinking it might help the burger) and she said yes. What she brought had no horseradish in it at all. All in all, it was very disappointing. Don’t know if it was just an off night or not

    My husband thoroughly enjoyed his Capital Burger. Although he prefers burgers fully cooked, the three cuts of beef made a moist burger. My vegetarian burger was terrible. The taste vacillated between black beans and a sour barbecue sauce. Never again. The parmesan truffle fries were ordinary and a waste of calories. The kale salad had a wonderful mix of crunchy veggies, but was overwhelmed by the amount of dressing. The New England clam chowder, while flavorful, was served almost cold. The best things about our experience were the terrific gent who seated us, the server who took care of us, and the lovely ambience. Unfortunately, not enough to warrant a second visit. At least our curiosity about this restaurant has been satisfied.

    Great burgers! This was a dinner stop for us ahead of picking up people at Washington Dulles airport. The roasted wild mushroom and swiss burger was excellent and make sure to start with eggs and bacon appetizer. Service was outstanding and atmosphere is perfect - some nice vintage posters. Will definitely come back and will check out the Boston location on one of our regular visits there too.
