    This is a high end steak house from the USA. So if your looking for a lunch or dinner of USA high end dinning then this the place to be. I have eaten at Miami and Houston location. This location was better due to small crowds in this location.

    Es muy caro para el país. No creo que haya un lugar para cenar mas caro en Costa Rica. Y es mas caro que otros Capital Grille de EEUU, donde he comido muchas veces. No es lógico. Costa Rica tiene muchos restaurantes de carnes extraordinarios, a mucho mejor precio. La calidad de la comida y atención es excelente, como ocurre en todos los restaurantes de esta franquicia.

    Service was EXCELLENCE, however I thing very high prices, I paid even more than I was used to at the Capital Grill in Chicago where I used to go regularly when I lived in that country. 1 bottle of sparkling water, an appetizer to share, a main course with 1 side each, 4 glasses of wine and one coffee were US$ 330, aprox US$ 165 per person.

    Every time I visit i come to Capital grill. For some reason MEDIUM is either Rare or well done. First time my Tomahawk was Well Done where the chef agreed and made a new one. Today was a Filet mignon 8 oz. Medium and I got it Medium rare. The filet had no seasoning. As a USA beef exporter it’s disappointing that a American franchise. Not be able to cook a steak at correct temperature to order. The sides and seafood were exceptional!

    Overall good experience. I found the wines to be extremely overpriced while the food was inline with other locations Ive visited. Food was good and on time, the most outstanding part was the service, which was even better than most US establishments.

    Close to decent experience. But what is it about Costa Rica that everything is so overpriced for Americans? $1,500 for a bottle of Banfi wine is ridiculously overpriced. Tignanello $300? After living in Italy and visiting these vineyards these prices do not even come close. Food was decent, presentation adequate and cocktails ok but would not go back.

    Una entrada de camarones fritos empanizados picantes muy sabrosa y generosa, luego unas costillas de cordero muy bien sazonadas con una salsa muy sabrosa, un puré de papa de muy buen sabor Lamentablemente me da la impresión que se exagera con el precio de los vinos

    The service was poor, we ordered a seafood platter as an appetizer followed by salad, then steak/asparagus/potatoes. The seafood platter arrive as an appetizer but then the next dish was the steak, then potatoes (not the ones we ordered), then the Caesar salad. They forgot the asparagus and it was brought out late in the meal. My last meal here was also disappointing so considering the prices I expect a higher quality service and will hesitate before coming back
