Perfect date night with my wife. The food is excellent. I had a New York strip and she had tuna. Crab cocktail and oysters for appetizers. The burrata salad is a treat. The steak was cooked perfectly.
Our server, Maxx, was smart and witty and his wine recommendation was spot on. Maxx, as well as the overall ambience, made for a wonderful experience. I highly recommend the Capital Grille.

Another enjoyable and delicious lunch at the Capital Grille. I treated my BFF to a birthday lunch, and the Capital Grill made it very special ( a birthday card, sparkles for the table, and a complimentary dessert.). All very appreciated.

Douglass, our waiter, was excellent, always right there to get us whatever we needed.

Complimentary parking also a plus.

We had the $22.00 luncheon, and the field salad was very fresh and nicely composed… the salmon perfectly cooked.
The salmon, I think should be served with some kind of roasted vegetable, but it is not….salmon was good, but a little bland without an accompaniment.

All in all, excellent! I go to the Capital Grill for special occasions and they never disappoint.

It was a special luncheon to celebrate my sister in law’s birthday, and we were seated at a beautiful booth, which was very quiet and de orated for her birthday, with spangles and stars on the table, and a birthday card for her.

The complimentary valet parking has been restored, which is appreciated.

We both had the lobster bisque, and lobster salad towers, which were excellent. Lots of lobster in the bisque and served with sherry, at a perfect hot temperature. The salad was very fresh with avocado, lobster and greens.

After lunch, a complimentary dessert was brought to the table….cheesecake and raspberries, beautifully plated.

We had chardonnay with the meal, and our iced teas, water…. all kept filled.

Service was prompt and attentive.

All in all, a lovely lunch.

Not inexpensive, though, $132.00 for two, as everything was a la carte. There is a lunch special for $22, which included a cup of clam chowder and an entree, but we elected to have the lobster salad and bisque

Went there on a Tuesday night with a friend and enjoyed it.
- Excellent service - everyone we encountered who worked there was polite, efficient and helpful.
Excellent food - the food was hot, prepared correctly and tasted flavorful. Definitely recommend the lobster bisque, bone-in filet mignon and au gratin potatoes.
- Excellent atmosphere and experience - the environment was chill, and our server gave my friend and I a long-stemmed red rose at the end of our meal since we were having our own Ladies' Night.

Overall, we recommend it and will definitely return.

I was entertaining clients with a business dinner. The food was amazing and the ambiance great. But what really floored me was Angel's *impeccable* service. No drink was ever empty, the flow of dishes was perfectly timed (kudos kitchen!) and the pre-bussing kept the table presentable throughout the entire experience. 10/10 will dine again! Thank you for providing such an excellent experience for me and my clients!

I enjoyed the food. This visit was my Birthday and my first time. The hostesses are pleasantly nice. The waitress just seemed in a rush and just trying to get the job done. I know she had many tables. Overall, no major complaints. Great food! It's expensive but worth it due to the quality of the food

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!

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.
