    Staff was great accommodating our reservation date change! Mary, our server, was very nice. Unfortunately, someone needs to work on timing. You should never serve your salads at the same time as the main course! Also, your cappuccino is a latte. We thoroughly enjoyed our Rhône wine, La Bernardine was delicious!!! Finally, Capital Grill is one of our favorite restaurants, sorry if I seem a little harsh. Thank you!!!

    This is for sure 10/10 Capital Grille location I have yet to visit. The food and aervice were unbeatable. The kitchen is pristine! I mean Gordon Ramsey clean! If you don't try this place in Escazu, the shame is on you.

    Me parece que el precio comparado a otros restaurantes en la misma zona es altamente costoso no comprendo como una cena para dos personas tuviera un costo de 80 mil colones. El otro aspecto estamos en CR deberían de aclarar en el menú que los costos son en dólares para así no llevarse una sorpresa en la factura final .

    Not Med/rare on a $110 steak. Not Heirloom tomatoes but basic tomatoes. No Horseradish for the Shrimp Cocktail. $300 for 1 person is crazy with the bad quality of food.

    The place is great and food is great; the hostess is fantastic - drinks are also great. Unfortunately, our waiter was hard to be seen. He was never around - he would up super sporadically like if he went to take a nap and then come back. We had to get our wine serve our selves or by the hostess the other waiters seem to be on top of their tables but ours was MIA
