    Food was just okay. Steaks were not Capital Grille quality. Apps and sides were mediocre. We were seated in a back room that seemed like a broken up banquet room. No ambiance. Slow service. I’ve been to other Capital Grilles. This one is not standard.

    First time at Capital Grille, and it was a wonderful experience. Always nice to valet; the girls at the front were very welcoming, the food was delicious, and the service was outstanding. Our server was Anastina, and she made our night memorable with her extensive knowledge of the wine and the food, her professionalism, and her warm, amicable personality. We dine out often, and we always say if the food is good but the service isn't, it's not a good dining experience. We will not hesitate to return. We're planning to bring my sister for her anniversary, and maybe even celebrate my husband's birthday there. We will request Anastina. Thank you for making our anniversary such a special occasion. --Nick, the manager, was also extremely nice. The rose petals, little hearts, card, glass of champagne were lovely gestures for our anniversary celebration.

    Our server was excellent but my NY strip was only ok. If I was grilling it myself I would have trimmed it better before firing it. I do not expect to have to to trim inedible fat/membrane off my $40+ steak myself in a high end restaurant. Very unimpressed.

    The experience started with the valet parking team. Very friendly, engaging and professional. We were seated right away and our waiter, Shane, had impeccable timing and great knowledge of the menu and the wines. We never felt rushed but never felt ignored. The food was fantastic and we all left happy. I will definitelt be back.

    This was our first time here and I can certainly say we will be back. My boyfriend and I came to celebrate our two year anniversary as well as my birthday. When we sat down our table was decorated with birthday confeti and a birthday card, which was a very nice touch. Our server, Jolene, was very nice and did an outstanding job timing our food accordingly. Everything tasted very job and the drinks were amazing. I felt very special , and makes me want to come back.

    Excellent ambiance and service. Luis, our server, did an excellent job, especially helping us with a wine selection. Overall food was excellent with the exception of my filet. I asked for "red" (I use colors rather than words as medium rare seems to mean different things at different restaurants but red is red). Mine was purple. Luis offered to get another filet for me promptly but we were heading to a show and I didn't have time, plus I hate not eating with others at my table. David the manager came over to apologize and to say he was taking it off my bill which I refused as they offered to correct it and I refused. And it was still delicious as was everything else. Still one of my favorite restaurants and they consistently do an excellent job. Highly recommend!

    The steaks were very well prepared with good flavor. The Ceasar salad was relatively tasteless. (Maybe no anchovies?) The service was professional and timed beautifully! Atmosphere was very noisy! We could hear plates banging and kitchen staff loudly yelling out orders. There might have been some music in the background but it was drowned out by lots of ambient noise There is no enforced dress code. Anyone can wear whatever they want. Diners came in with baggy shorts, T shirts and sloppy jeans. Others wore collared polo shirts and dresses. P.S. The meat was so good—probably a good idea to buy from the Butcher!
