Not sure what happened in the kitchen but food quality was clearly off. We had a late reservation so I think the kitchen must have been shutting down. A disappointment overall.

Waitress had a bad attitude. Left a big tip anyway in hopes that she runs across the street to Target and picks up a better one. Food was good and manager was nice. Will go back.

A beautiful place, excellent steaks and lobster. Very busy so service was a bit slow, but it was saturday night so... Dont bother with the sides just go for the mains and the appetizers soup and salads are good as well. Very pricey so maybe just for Valentines or anniversary. Very good steak though got the 14 oz NY Strip cooked to perfection. Worth a visit. Happy eating. :)

Valentines Day they provide the female a rose, the couple a flute of champagne, chocolate dipped strawberries and a memory photo. It would be nice if they gave you the photo at the beginning instead of at the end so the rose could be in the photo :) Experience, food, service were all amazing!

My Boyfriend and I ( A LGBT Couple) Came here for Valentines Day and the food was amazing but the service was ok and the only reason I say ok is me and my boyfriend were not treated like every body else. The Restaurant was giving roses out for the couples and we did not get one and that was fine how ever when the server made comment " We been giving chocolate overed strawberry's to couples so I guess it would not hurt" that made me and my partner feel uncomfortable and feel like we were doing something wrong just for going out for Valentines Day. We spend money just like any body else and left a tip because we are bigger then that. I do give high rating on the food!!

Our 7:00 reservation was honored on time on a very busy night.Extremely friendly staff.

It's great, but pricey.
Food is wonderful.
Service was impeccable.
There was a problem honoring a $10 reward I had earned from Open Table and I wanted to apply to the $200 evening for 2.

Our evening at Capital was wonderful in every way except it was noisy. The background music was too loud, which forced everyone to talk in a loud voice in order to be heard. I just can’t understand why some fine dining restaurants don’t try harder to create an environment conducive to dinner conversation..

We were in town welcoming in two new employees and it happened to coincide with one of my peer's 50th birthday. We decided to come in and celebrate at The Capital Grille. We had an incredible night, from having a private table in a secluded part of the restaurant, to the table being decorated for his birthday to the amazing wait staff. Cameron and John Penrose as well as the others who helped serve us were absolutely top notch. Cameron in particular read our vibe and "got us" he knew how to interact, how to add levity and it simply made the night amazing. Thank you!

If you are looking for the place to have an amazing meal when in Raleigh... you have to visit The Capital Grille!

The food was excellent, especially the salmon, cooked to perfection. Our waiter was outstanding, his attention to every detail was amazing. I don't think you can get better service and food quality anywhere in Raleigh, NC. Great experience.

Went for restaurant week and it was outstanding! Steaks are phenomenal and dirty martini's to die for! Wish I could afford going more often. It is definitely a special occasion kind of place. Service exquisite - highly recommend, just make sure you have lots of $$!

The start was not good, we were seated exactly in front of the kitchen entry and exit. Then the main reason we came to Capital Grill was the lobster bisque. We did not find it on the menu. But the atmosphere was quickly turned 180 by our server Jonathan. He reassured us that the Lobster Bisque was available and he also determined it was our anniversary which I forgot to mention when I made the reservation. Jonathan made us feel as if we were the most important couple in the restaurant. Gave us champagne and a hand written card for our celebration. I would recommend Capital Grill, but most importantly I would recommend Jonathan as the server.

Always good food with exceptional service. The crab leg add on was overpriced. Best to stick with the menu basics as portions are generous and worth the pricing. The add ons however tip the scale.

The food and service was excellent. Our waiter (Dakota) was one of the best waiters we have ever had. He was attentive, made great suggestions, and made our evening very special. We always find The Capital Grill here in Raleigh and in Dallas our best dining experiences!
