The Capital Grille - Chicago - Downtown
We usually dine at the bar and have wonderful meals. We got a table upstairs and the service was slow and forgot a few things. It’s one of my favorite places in the south loop with the closest tomato sauce to my Nonna’s.
Great mussels appetizer and wife’s sea bass were great
My lobster special was cold. Have been there 50 times and alway great so will give them a pass
Very pleasant surprise! I will definitely go again to try additional dishes.
Great place in the South Loop for Italian. My wife always gets some kind of pasta with meatballs. She's a meatball connoisseur, and thinks these are terrific. I've had all sorts of menu items. Last time out, the bracciole was the special, and was delicious. Nice wine list.
Had a lovely dinner at Victory Tap. Restaurant week was a good value, portion sizes more than ample. We live in the neighborhood and are definitely regulars. My husband loves the escarole and beans and the green pizza. I was hoping to see a special that I had a few days ago, which was the seafood risotto, that was one of the best dishes I have ever eaten. Please let me know when that is on the menu again!
Great tasting Italian cuisine! Portions are large on many items including the appetizers.
Very good service, but restaurant was not crowded. Noise level eas acceptable. However, as more people dined, it became very loud.
Excellent, as always! Best marinara in the city. The baked clams are a must.
Our server was great and took very good care of us. The only part of the experience that wasn’t so great was having to wait almost an hour for our 8:00 reservation. Overall good experience
Food was great as was the service! Portions are huge, you can easily share an entre, we will next time. A little loud, but that comes with a busy place ! A great server.. we will be back!
Great Food was busy because of NYE but overall we had a party of 4 & everything met our expectations. Very good food food-Hot & Fresh large portions.
Lisa made our experience! The whole meal was fantastic for our family. Will definitely be back next time we are in town.
Our local go-to Italian place. Christmas Eve with homey feeling and sitting up front which is our preference. (Fireplace and not as noisy and congested as main dining area.) Service was more than accommodating to vegetarian and dairy sensitivity. Food portions are large and very tasty. Keep up the good work in 2020.
Fabulous as ever. It’s our go to place!
We come weekly. First time on a Wednesday so may have been just different staff. We had our first bad drinks from the bar- always get Old Fashioneds and the bartender clearly did not know how to make and charged us $9 more per drink for the Angels Envy bourbon instead of CH- way over priced . She said the mid (?) was off and put vermouth in the drink- she clearly does not know how to bartend as even the remade one was awful. Generally your bar service is excellent.
Then we waited so long for dinner service - had to ask the hostess and then still had no waiter service until the manager finally noticed. At least twice, the other waitress walked by as did other staff, with no acknowledgment. We got thru entire plate of bread just waiting for first order service. Then the waiter wouldn’t let us order our entire meal up front, so we ended up waiting again for a long time between salad/ app and our main dishes because of his poor timing .
Last the ambience was ruined (not your fault) by a group of drunk medical office workers who were so loud and obnoxious sitting next to us.
The food was excellent as always, so we’ll be back but never on another Wednesday.
Great experience overall, but it was loud even at the back of the restaurant. Made conversation a bit hard.
The food was excellent and the restaurant had a great vibe to it! We will be back again
Absolutely love this place and the energy that goes with it! Thank you for keeping Red Schooner on the menu. Sausage and peppers and the bonus potatoes are my favorite! Be back soon
If you like Ravioli's or Lasagna this is the Place.
Food was great, but I feel all the staff are sales people. My waitress and manager both came over to after we got our food and the first thing out their mouth is do you need another drink? I would say focus more on the guest and experience the drinks will be ordered if we are enjoying ourselves.
Amazing Grigliato Misto Seafood appetizer.
Delicious appetizers and incredibly well prepared meals that are packed with flavor and presented beautifully. This is one of the best restaurants for Italian food with a vibrant atmosphere. Strongly recommend Victory Tap!
Fantastic bar staff!
Great service and food!
A great, relaxing evening prior to a hectic Thanksgiving holiday.
Eggplant stack salad was delicious. Eggplant could have been sliced a bit thicker.
Will be back with other friends in the near future.
One of my favorite spots ever. Love the Red Schooner on the wine list
I had been there on a weeknight before and loved the vibe! But on a Friday night it was so loud that honestly it was nearly unbearable. I had dinner there with a friend from out of town ... bad choice! We could hardly hear each other. Good for them, it was packed! But wow the noise level. Note, the food is fabulous and portions generous, and the wine list is wonderful but a bit overpriced.
Been wanting to try this place for a while. Boy did I waste time NOT coming sooner! Wow! Was wowed from beginning to end. Service incredible. They are on you in a great way and know how to treat guests. The food was the real star. Bone in rib eye one of best we have had. Family all ate off it and was a bit jealous of my dish. Pasta incredible. The gnocchi was so fresh. The tomato vodka sauce holy cow we have had many this one is the best. Hands down. Best part a little slice of my childhood growing up near elmwood pm Armand’s was a place we went to often. I guess there is family involved in this place and they have some of the old recipes and serve the thin crust pizza. Next tome I’ll try that and report back.
Don’t waste time with other places. Just go and try it. You will love it and be back for sure.
Food was outstanding, service was attentive and fast (Lisa), will definitely be back! Don't miss the Tiramisu!
A bit loud in the lower restaurant. Bread given to all tables was cold and not very tasty. Entrees were delicious!
We always enjoy our food. Drinks are great. Lisa always makes sure we are well taken care of
Always great service. Always great food. Best spot in the South Loop.
Absolutely obsessed with this place. It will most definitely be my neighborhood haunt. Perfect for grabbing a delicious custom cocktail or a delicious meal with friends/family. They make an amazing vodka sauce and their ravioli is to die for. And very reasonably priced.
Welcoming environment, good local feel.
Had a 445 p.m. reservation and was seated immediately. Our visit was kinda of a mixed bag of good and so so. Our waiter was pleasant and efficient. Seemed to always be one speed and that was moving quickly throughout his serving area. Bread basket was delicious and garlic bread started the evening off nice. Split a Caesar's salad, huge and delicious. I prefer it chopped up more but my wife loved it this way. Ordered Calamari for appetizer, nice size order, very tender. Price was a little steep. I ordered the pork chop calabriese (sp), delicious, and wife ordered the Sea Bass with oven roasted potatoes. Fish was great, potatoes looked good, but the inside consistency was like mashed potatoes . I ordered a side of vodka pasta and it was so heavy with sauce and cheese I asked for less sauce and a new side . This was no problem and out came the new order. Too much sauce again. I want to enjoy the pasta taste and that can't happen when you over sauce it! Pasta was cooked perfectly thou. Had cannolli (sp) for desert and it was just average. One thing I noticed several times in that is that food orders were brought to wrong tables. Summary is we will be back, prices are reasonable, service good.
Good atmosphere and service !!
Had a friend visiting from France
Victory Tap is a hidden gem. excellent. You must try this place.
Waited at least 15 minutes after being seated to be greeted by a server.
