Brittany was our server
She was excellent, came to us at all the right moments, knowledgeable about the menu and made great suggestions. Loved being able to pick out the wine from the ipad, great selection and lots of descriptions which made choosing easier. Fantastic food and so nice having the valet pull the car around as we paid the bill. Thanks again!! Best first experience with this place!!

My husband had recently had eye surgery and it was his birthday so I wanted to make him really happy. Capital Grille definitely made it easy to achieve. Everything was perfect; they had a personalized birthday card and a bit of confetti on our table. This was our first visit but it won’t be the last . They truly pay attention to details ‼️

The Capitol Grille is always full and one can see why. Excellently prepared dishes, interestingly constructed, and always beautifully served. Competent wine list. Service that is personable yet professional at every turn. Easily best restaurant that side of town.

We celebrated our anniversary. We felt so pampered by the restaurant and awesome server Glorie. A hand written note and heart confetti waited for us at the table when we arrived.They surprised us with a lovely dessert and champagne to close out. This was our third anniversary celebration at this restaurant and we know we will be back many more.

Capital Grille never disappoints. The service, food and ambiance is always amazing and this visit was no exception. We had a drink at the bar before our dinner seating. Service was welcoming and prompt. Our dinner was spectacular. The bone in rib-eye is my favorite steak anywhere. It’s seasoned well and was fork tender. Always my go to when I want a great night out and I’m never disappointed

We have frequented the Capital Grille, and usually enjoy our wonderful time. Unfortunately, this visit fell short of our previous experiences on a number of levels. 1). The clientele dress code has shifted from a more business casual (worthy of a nicer establishment) to a very casual (Applebees) attire for many of the patrons. 2). Our service was fell short of our previous dining experiences. We needed to call our waitress back on a couple of occasions to be served; our appetizers were overlooked, and had to be requested; our dinner came within a minute of the apps arriving and had to be kept under a warmer until we were ready…which was not our preference. The manager did stop by to apologize and credited us for one of our apps. In the end, it will probably be awhile before we dine there again.

I took a friend to lunch at Capital Grille for her birthday yesterday. I hadn't been there before and didn't quite know what to expect.
We had a truly delicious lunch at a fair price (salad plus salmon entree for $22) and a complimentary beautilful dessert plate was served to her.
The service was great. It was a lovely experience. i will definitely return.

Capital Grille never disappoints. We went to celebrate my boyfriends birthday and they made him feel extra special. They let me drop his cake off prior to our reservation. When we arrived at our table they had decorated it and left a b-day card. Our waitress was so attentive, on top of the table decor, they gave us a birthday treat, glasses of champagne and red roses. It was an amazing experience and Capital Grille was an amazing end to my boyfriends birthday festivities. I cant wait to celebrate our next event there.

It was my birthday on the 27th and went there for dinner. Our waitress, Torri went above and beyond. When I tell you that she was one of the people that made my birthday memorable, I mean that. I’ve never had better service anywhere else and the food was delicious! I’m coming back real soon.
