    Food and the server were great. Only negative was that there was a cool, bordering on cold draft constantly throughout the evening where we were sitting. My daughter and I were both freezing.

    The restaurant atmosphere was very nice. We were seated and immediately felt rushed, even though we said we weren’t in a hurry. No specials were mentioned and we felt the pressure to order right away. I ordered a cocktail and then a glass of wine, both were the tiniest pours you’ve ever seen. I had the wedge salad and no fresh pepper was offered and soon our entrees showed up. Our side asparagus was bad. It was charred, and dripping in oil with a strong lemon taste. Our bill showed up soon after and we were in and out of the restaurant in less than an hour with a $250 bill. This was definitely not the Capital Grille experience we’ve enjoyed on the east coast in the past.

    The food is excellent here, but is a bit overpriced -- side dishes aren't part of the meal and are expensive and ok. The entrees were wonderful, and the desserts exquisite. Service was the best ever!!! Lamb needed more sauce. Beef tenderloins and lobster were good, but there was too much lobster, and it was tough. It needed some type of sauce. I am a mushroom lover, and I wasn't fond at all of the mushroom side dish. They need some seasoning or flavor added. Mashed potatoes were AMAZING, and the truffle fries were excellent but were very intense. I could only eat a few of them because the truffle oil is so strong in them. They should give half as many. Best part was the dessert -- hands down! Creme Brulee and Cheesecake. Soooo good. The meal was very expensive, but was a fine dining experience. Steaks were not up to par with restaurants half their cost. Dinner was a wonderful experience, but it was very expensive. However, we were grateful to have somewhere to go on Thanksgiving. Our server was phenomenal.

    For only having been open for approximately 7 months this is absolutely phenomenal. It is not only a outstanding for it’s food, but for its hospitality. In todays world post covid it seems no one cares about providing top tier service. So when you are graced with it like we were, it is so shocking that you can’t help but sit in awe while it is before you. This is that place. It is perfect from the time you walk in to the time you leave. My only issue with this entire place is that it says Grille in the name. To those who do not understand what this restaurant is providing will sell it short before ever walking in. The Capital is a true leader in fine dinning and guest service in Salt Lake City.

    We dined at The Capital Grille last night for the first time, which I learned opened this year. From the moment we walked in, the service was welcoming and accommodating. The host and hostess allowed us to be seated well before our reservation time and our waiter Daniel was extremely attentive and we lacked for nothing. I chose the porcini rubbed ribeye with balsamic glaze and my partner the NY strip steak with cognac cream. We rounded out the evening with lobster mac & cheese and a crème brûlée. The quality of the steaks was excellent. I would highly recommend coming for a special dinner. The only thing I could say was that the smaller room that we were seated in was a bit cold and not particularly inviting and could be made a little bit more exciting. We passed through the main room and it was delightfully busy and lively, but of course, someone else might prefer this quieter, smaller room, so this comment is completely subjective. Please enjoy this restaurant!

    We were celebrating my wife and my best friends birthday and we are extremely happy we chose The Capital Grille! It is one of our favorite restaurants and love that they are finally open in Utah. We were lucky enough to get Armand as our server and he was great. He is a true professional and a great representation of The Capital Grille. We started with the lobster bisque and it was fantastic. It comes with big chunks of lobster meat and is thick and tasty. We also tried the Double Cut Smoked Bacon with Korean BBQ glaze and pickled shallots. It had a nice smokey flavor but had a little too much fat. The lobster and crab cakes were awesome as usual. For our sides we ordered Sam's potatoes, lobster mac and cheese and asparagus. All 3 sides were a generous amount and prepared just right. All of the entrees were excellent! The filet mignon was tender and delicious. My Bone-In Kona Coffee Crusted Dry Aged NY Strip with Shallot Butter was full of flavor. The ribeye with lobster tails never disappoints! Since we were celebrating birthdays, they serve a complimentary mini cheesecake and flourless chocolate cake. We also ordered the coconut creme pie which is unbelievable! Thank you to everyone that made our birthday celebration a fantastic experience and special thanks to Armand for such incredible service! We look forward to coming back again soon!

    I really wanted to like this place, but it was just okay. I had the dry aged New York steak and while it was expertly cooked, I did not get that dry aged funky taste that I was craving. I could not really tell that the steak was aged at all. Our server, as well as our cocktails and wine were excellent. We also had the shrimp cocktail, and while the shrimp were nice and meaty, they were a bit overcooked. Potatoes au gratin were dry and nothing special. The side of mushrooms was delicious. I feel like when you go to an expensive steakhouse, you are looking for the classics and some modern options to be executed with top quality ingredients very reliably, and while this place was good, it was not great.
