    Outstanding food and service and what you would come to expect from The Capital Grille. We eat at many steakhouses and you expect the best from restaurants at this level. Brian was our server and was very attentive and on point all night. Started with bread that was several different types but all fresh different and delicious. Like it all just came out of the oven. We have the lobster bisque which tasted deep and lovely with large chunks of lobster in the soup. She got crab cakes great and I got the porcini rubbed ribeye which was cooked to perfection. The drinks we good too. We have been to this location a few times since they have opened and I don't regret any visits. Will definitely go back.

    Great for that special occasion, which is why we chose Capital Grille. Phenomenal Porcini bone-in Ribeye, done to perfection. Very attentive staff, enjoyable experience as a celebration of big events in life. Great wine menu, just right Lunch menu and super Dinner menu. You'll be treated as if you owned the place, what more could one ask for when dining out?

    Service was outstanding - kudos to Shantel! Three of four in the group had the lunch filet. While it was cooked to perfection at medium, we all found it to be a little dry and were somewhat disappointed. Were hoping we had found our new special occasion restaurant but will have to reconsider. May give it another try given the ambiance, service, and great location. The fourth member of our group opted for the special luncheon of salad and breast of chicken and she loved it so that was a plus. A lovely touch from Shantel was to offer us a dessert sampler to top off our lunch. Since this was our first time here, that was much appreciated and the cheesecake will definitely be a consideration for possible future visits. Once again, it was a lovely luncheon but the steaks were just not as we had imagined.

    Birthday celebration for good friend. Everything was excellent. Table was decorated and a birthday card from the restaurant was included on the table. Free dessert on a special plate added to the celebration. Service was outstanding and food was not only served in a reasonable time, it was still warm and delicious. I recommend Capital Grille for a lovely meal as well as for a special occasion!

    Thank you for making our son's birthday special! You had a hand written birthday card, confetti on the table and everyone welcomed us and wished him a happy birthday! Our two servers, Jessica and I think Jennifer were outstanding! They were so attentive, knowledgeable of the menu and super friendly. Thank you ladies and staff for a wonderful, first time visit!

    Started badly but improved. Started badly with hostess(es) who seated us at the table closest to the entrance and restrooms ... despite having a reservation. Then the hostess asked if we were celebrating a birthday. When I replied no, she said she would take the decorations (sprinkles and a card) off the table. We moved to a more private booth, thankfully, and had a great waiter - Bob. He's the best waiter I've had, although I've only been to that restaurant three times. Food, wine and service were very good.

    Meals were excellent! As for service; we felt rushed by the waitress! She brought out a meal we did not order. She "thought" that was what we ordered. She admitted that she wasn't sure, but failed to check. The meal in question was for our quests helping us celebrate our Anniversary!

    Had a great experience for our first time there. It was my wifes 50th birthday and had asked if I can have flowers delivered to the restaurant the day of, I didn’t get a response, probably because I made the reservation the same week. The service we received when we arrived was more than expected. When taken to our VIP section our table had Three beautiful roses already waiting for us. Emma was our VIP server and she just made it even better that night with the impeccable service she gave to us. Kudos to management, and Emma for making our night a memorable one. Thank you
