    Although I primarily go to CG for the imported steaks, I decided to try the chicken for the first time ever today. The lunch special included a choice of soup or salad, 2 organic chicken breasts seasoned to perfection and cooked so well... juicy, yet cooked all the way through and very tender. Very delicious. It's going to be one of my favorites for lunch moving forward.

    I love the ability to have a wine locker. Although they have the best wine list in Costa Rica, there are wines that are not available in CR. So I bring some of my own bottles from out of the country and store them in my locker there and let them serve it by the glass. It's a great experience. They also have a Coravin that they use for their finest wines for when you don't want to drink the entire bottle

    The GM found out that I love their cheesecake (who can resist it) but that I couldn't eat it because I'm on a diet right now. So he took the time and had them make me a sugar free cheesecake as a special order. Looks the same, tastes the same, but has zero sugar. This restaurant and staff continues to amaze me as they never say no.

    It was a great lunch as usual at TCG. I made a note in my reservation that it was going to be 2 adults and 3 kids and they put us in a private room in the back to make it easier for us. The kids meals are great. My daughter prefers the kid's filet but her friends wanted chicken tenders and Mac and cheese.. Me and my wife love their salads so I had the Cobb Salad with tenderloin and my wife had a cup of French Onion soup and the crisp house salad. Alfredo took great care of us and was very attentive. Another excellent meal at TCG

    The think that is great about this restaurant is they never say no. I wanted a filet but wanted it prepared like their NY Strip with peppercorn crust and Courvoisier sauce. Sure enough the chef made my filet that way and it was excellent!

    One of the secrets of Capital Grille is the lunch specials they have. You have a very large meal that includes a starter of soup or salad to accompany your parmesan crusted salmon, the chicken breast with mashed potatoes or the sliders with truffle fries

    Honestly out of all the Capital Grills I tried this is the worse. Kids screaming, food was just okay.. prosciutto should not be a cold starter. Overall, this is the second time i tried this location and neither time was great. price for two people with two cocktails was around $260 USD.

    The chefs have a lot of flexibility. I'm on a low carb diet but I had a taste for shrimp and my daughter doesn't like spicy food. They were able to take the breaded fried shrimp and make them for us in a Sautee of lemon butter sauce. It was excellent

    I have seen some posts that claim TPG is expensive. It may be more than the average restaurant in CR. However you have to consider that the meats are imported from the US as are many other things on the menu. So you can't compare a normal local CR steak to a prime aged one from the US. On top of that, I have compared the prices to TCG restaurants in the US and it is about the same. So it is amazing to have the same quality food and service from the US, here is Escazu for the same price. Also remember that the prices listed include tax and 10%: service whereas US prices normally for include tax and tip. Of course you can always add additional tip in CR too but still less than it is in the US.

    One of my favorite lunch dishes at this location is the Parmesan Crusted Salmon lunch special that comes with a soup or salad to start. I personally ask for it without the crust as I'm trying to watch my carbs but it is still excellent without it. The white wine lemon butter sauce with roasted garlic and cherry tomatoes is excellent. A very large piece of Salmon for the price!
