Our waiter, Mike, was excellent!! Food was delicious and manager was beyond accommodating when they didn’t have the wine I ordered. He suggested a wine that I ended up loving even more than what I had originally ordered!

Absolutely fantastic experience and our first time! Greg was our server and he was funny, informative and had stealth-like skills in replenishing drinks. The food was incredible...I had the tenderloin with lobster tails, cooked to perfection. The homemade ice cream was a very tasty treat, even though we were both full. We knew Bill (manager) from another restaurant and he made our visit even better with a tour of the restaurant. Overall, exceptional experience and one we will come back to over and over.

The Capital Grille is my new favorite restaurant. Everything from when we were greeted to when the valet arrived with our car was perfect. The staff was so professional and welcoming. Our waiter, Greg, was very knowledgeable and helpful when we had a question. We were there celebrating my boyfriend's birthday and they made his day very special.

We have been to may locations across the country, so we were looking forward to trying this location in our hometown. I have to say that we were disappointed. The layout of the restaurant was cramped. We were bumped many times by servers and customers walking by and had to squeeze by when walking to the restroom. I ordered my steak medium, but it came out medium-rare to rare. This should have not happened at a steakhouse. I did not send it back because I knew I would be taking most of it home. Our server was fantastic and the taste of the food was good. With so many great fine dining steakhouse choices in St. Louis, I'm not sure that we will be coming back.

It was my son’s birthday. It was a group of five of us. The dinner was exquisite. The service was timely, appropriate and perfect. I had a porterhouse steak that was incredible. The mushrooms asparagus and mashed potatoes were also quite exquisite. I also had ironclad garlic shrimp which were huge and extremely tasty. My son had swordfish for the first time. He loved it. My daughter ate the lobster mac & cheese. She Was impressed. Overall, although it was one of the more expensive meals I’ve ever had, it was well worth the price. I will be coming back often. This is become my favorite steakhouse in St. Louis.

Outstanding food and service. Have been to numerous Capital Grill locations, this Clayton location is by far the classiest one I have seen. Simply spectacular interior, both the bar area and the dining room.
My opinion on value is slightly off because of the wine prices, which are roughly 3X retail, or approximately 3.5X wholesale cost, regardless of the price point. This pricing strategy puts premium wines at staggering levels in my opinion.
Must add that every level of contact, from bartenders to table service personnel to waiters to the management we met were professional and polished hosts. Everyone in our party of four were sincerely impressed by the entire staff. We will definitely be back.

Very good food and great service, but a little pricy. We had a bottle of wine that should be removed from their list, but we chalked it up to a bad recommendation by the waiter. That said, CG is one of the best chain steak restaurants I have experienced. They make mistakes, but try hard. I had my wife’s 60th birthday party their in October 2017 (30 guests) and the food was excellent, better than my meal this past weekend.

Overall, a good place for s good meal.

Above average service for sure. Waiter used our wine selection to bring a dessert pairing without asking. Been to many of these and it was obvious they are trying very hard to provide service above the rest.

Nothing special here. Food is okay, service is satisfactory, but no "wow factor" for the money spent. I compare all restaurants to my favorite....the pinnacle of all restaurants in my opinion; Joe's Stone Crab in Chicago. The BEST bone-in filet you can put in your mouth costs $55.95 at Joe's. Capital Grille charges $65 for the same filet; problem is, the chef doesn't know how to cook it. Disappointing.

The best word is disappointing! The space was nice and our server was knowledgeable, efficient and first rate. The food was the problem. Salads were just ok. The steaks were pricey and truly, just fair. Not what we expected. We have had more flavorful and tender steaks for less money at many places in St. Louis.

Had to send the steak back twice. They were very gracious and did not charge for the steak, but obviously that really throws off the evening. I don’t think it ever got up to medium rare. I’ve had many great experiences here and will be back—this particular one was just off.

Wait staff was awful.
This was a wedding dinner. Special occasion - one guest got the wrong entrée, one guests food was undercooked. I had to ask wait staff to take a drink order, I had to ask wait staff to take our order, I had to ask wait staff for our bill.
One member of your wait staff brought over off color lymrics - recited one of them in mixed company and it was totally inappropriate and offensive.

You guys screwed up a very special occasion. No recovery in my view. Even your on site manager was insulting.
