What a great night, starting with a last minute decision to celebrate our 30th anniversary there. Jacob at the bar was super! Alexis our server was very attentive. The table was decorated with heart confetti and a Happy Anniversary card. We both had the specials, my husband a bone-in filet minion, what!! I had a ginormous South African lobster tail, the sides were amazing, they customized the mashed potatoes into Horseradish mashed! And as a special treat, they somehow knew our favorites and brought a complimentary double dessert of cheesecase/lave cake with 2 champagne splits and a long stem rose! THANK YOU!

One word…AWESOME! Our hostess, Atiya Davis made the experience on a scale of 1-10? A 20+

Menu is a little pricey but worth every penny!

We went to celebrate our anniversary and when we checked in every staff member seemed to be aware. Our table was decorated and there was a card waiting for us. At the end of the meal we were given complimentary dessert and champagne. The meal was superb and service was attentive without hovering. All-in-all it was a most enjoyable evening and well-worth the price.

AN ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION to remember - SUPERB!
Our server, DOUG, was at the top of his CG game. We could not have asked for a better dining experience. Doug was professional, friendly, and went above and beyond for our celebration.
The FOOD - PHENOMENAL from our first sip of our cocktails to our last bite of dessert.
The CAPITAL GRILLE consistently offers a relaxed elegance with EXCEPTIONAL Cuisine.
THANK YOU CAPITAL GRILLE Raleigh...... You deserve to be successful especially in today's unchartered waters.

Capital Raleigh is amazing; consistently the best service, atmosphere, and perfectly prepared cuisine in the Triangle.

The Waygu steak was a special last weekend, and was the best steak I’ve ever enjoyed.

Hayat was amazing as our server. She made sure we had everything we needed before we needed it. Reservation was made and we were seated shortly after arriving. We were early so it took a couple of minutes to get ready. Food was amazing. First time trying crab cakes and they were amazing. Steaks and lamb chops were cooked to perfection. Drinks we strong and flavorful. Definitely got my money's worth in alcoholic beverages. Deserts were great as well. Definitely recommend the cheesecake. Lobster Mac is done right along with the mashed potatoes. Would go back in a heart beat to me this was a better food selection and taste than a Ruths Chris. Would come here Everytime.

My wife received as a retirement gift from her company a night at the capital Grille. Her former employer called ahead and gave a credit card for our meals with a limit of $500. We invited our son and his fiancé as well. After being seated in the back of the restaurant we waited over 30 minutes for someone to take our drink order. Once our appetizers and meals were ordered we waited another 30 minutes for the apps to arrive. The Caesar salad had brown and wilted Romain along with extremely stale croutons. When our waitstaff came to remove the plates they didn’t inquire why that salad had barely been touched. Just took it away. Our meals all came out together and one steak was barely warm as if it had been waiting for the others to be prepared. The sliced filet came out way under done. Weird because it was the only steak that was actually sliced so the kitchen staff could see that it was not cooked to medium. The Seabass and ribeye were perfect. After the meal they brought out a tray with some dessert items as a token of congratulations to my wife. Then they came with the bill and told us that the tip could not be covered by the credit card that was given for the evenings meals. At that point, we did not argue, we just paid the tip and left. Probably never to return.

We requested outdoor seating but they had a table decorated inside for us. Once they realized their mistake they didn’t decorate an outside table. We were also put right by the door and a very loud table when there were other tables available.
