Steaks were worth the $, but the salads were sparse and limp and the sides (truffle fries and lobster mac) were just not tasty. Sautéed spinach was a hit

Overall vibe is high priced chain restaurant...servers and staff are friendly but not professional. At these prices you shouldn’t have to be surrounded with folks who are the most “relaxed dressers” (sloppy) trying to score “fine dining”...

No matter what, it’s still a chain restaurant dressed up to attract $$ from those who don’t get to do this often and are attracted by the hype

Save your money and find a nice locally owned restaurant

As always nothing but top-notch service from our favorite Raleigh restaurant. Dakota is our preferred served and we were fortunate that he was working. He provides amazing service, attentiveness without being overbearing and has a wonderful personality! Glorie also checked in on us several times and made the experience amazing as always.

The bourbon was requested to have a single “solid” ice. Ice came normal and glass had debris in it, bourbon was poured into a different glass at table, not a normal scenario I have seen. Food was good service was good- overall average service and food. Compared to D.C. the environment and unique experience provided at the DC location is very different then in Raleigh.

I took my wife here tonight fir her birthday. The experience was “ok” at best.
The sea bass was too salty & the the lamb chops were too fatty and the rice was undercooked to the point where I could still taste some rice kernels.

We won’t be going back here for some time.

I will go to Fleming & Sullivans Steakhouse instead.

Food as usual was excellent. Cocktails (French Martinis) were a bit odd in taste. A bubbly effervescent taste like soda was added, I was wondering if the pineapple juice had fermented and hardly more than a few drops of chambourg.

Probably the worst experience we’ve had at a Capital grille unfortunately. Hubby and I both ordered medium rare.... mine came out medium + and his was close to medium well. We ordered green beans and au gratin potatoes (which the server repeated back twice), yet truffle fries were brought out. Apologies were made, and a manager came out, but he said it would be 10-15 min (which by then we would be done our meals).

Overall just extremely disappointed... $260 and wrong food and steaks better at outback sadly. We have been there for 3 anniversaries in a row, doubtful we will come back next year

The food was great. Our server was very nice and accommodating but the service was slow. It took almost 25 mins to get our dessert which we ordered at the same time we ordered our entree.

The service was not great considering the type of restaurant. I asked for a bowl of soup and was brought a cup. I asked for a well-done steak that was brought out with a completely pink center. I had to ask for steak sauce three times before it was brought, which meant most of the people I was dining with were most of the way through their meals. The food wasn’t amazing either. The steak I had was tasteless - just an overbearing amount of pepper put on it. I will not be recommending or returning.

Everything was great minus the food. I didn’t hate it but it wasn’t anything special. Below average for a restaurant like this. Valet is complimentary, by the way.

Server was not on point. Host was asked to have wine from our locker decanted which server forgot. One steak ordered medium came out very well done. Had to pour our own wine a few times.

Best value around...wahgu beef burger and fries paired with a premium high end red wine for the price of the wine alone...it can't be beat! Only limitation is you can only order it in the lounge to get the price.

Capital Grille is a great restaurant, especially for memorable and special occasions. Our wait staff was really superb and very friendly. He helped make our evening. Food preparation were excellent and the steak was a perfect temperature. Dessert menu was very good and our selection was a Coconut creme pie to share. Very light and delicious.

Cap Grille is always one of my favorite restaurants and it absolutely didn’t disappoint. Great food, the service was impeccable, and the atmosphere was perfect - with the exception of a really loud table of 6. The staff was accommodating with our reservation even when we needed to push our time back from 6:30 to 7:30 it was not a problem. They also had our favorite booth. I thought the special was over priced ($71.00 for the entree) and it was not properly explained when ordering. It was my birthday and I had a great time celebrating with my wife. Thanks Capital Grille
