    Our server, Lizbeth, was exceptional! Her knowledge of the menu and specific ingredients, attentiveness to the table, friendly nature, outstanding level of customer service, and professionalism are all the reasons why I returned to this establishment in addition to the food presentation and flavor. Thank you, Capital Grille for a wonderfully memorable dining experience! I look forward to my next visit soon!

    We celebrated my sister’s birthday at Capital Grill last night. There was confetti on the table, a hand written birthday wish, champagne and dessert! The lump crab appetizer is delicious! One recommendation would be to rethink the tuna. It comes in a block on your plate on top of some bland white rice.

    We came for our anniversary dinner and the experience was amazing. The ambiance was nice and warm with Jazz music playing in the background, the service was exceptional and the food, every single dish, was amazing. Knowing that it was our anniversary the restaurant decorated our table, offered us a free glasses of champagne ,free glasses of their signature drink (vodka with pineapple) and a slice of rich chocolate cake The experience was so special that we decided that going forward we will celebrate our anniversaries at this spot I can not say enough good things about the dinner last night

    We often eat a this establishment but for some reason tonight was the worst service and consideration I ever felt . 915 reservation food got to us at 1040 wrong salmon was raw lobster Mac no bread crumbs as went sent the food back the manger come to apologize and explained they were trying a new cook in a Friday night and they will re cook the salmon and said they ran out of bread crumbs . Cool until I see the kitchen staff sprinkling bread crumbs on someone else’s Mac an cheese smh . At that point I asked for the chk and was ready to go . The manger says so sorry no worries it’s on us jus leave and promise u will come back smh again . Ct closes at 10 We hadn’t eatin and everything else was closed they messed up my night so bad .

    They overcooked my steak and lamb twice. We didn't even want to send it back but they insisted and then overcooked it the second time. They need to look at the guide to cooking steak. The drinks and apps were delightful tho as were the sides.

Our server Jasmine was very friendly and very attentive again the food was all cooked just the way we liked it. I definitely will be coming more often going forward.

    Nice atmosphere, attentive and professional service. Food was very very good! We all had filet and seafood. Our waitress was very nice, took a photo of table and printed it, they gave me a delicious dessert for my B day. The black tie margarita was very delicious. Can’t say enough. Will definitely return.

    Our server - Lizabeth - was excellent….unfortunately, the food was a little disappointing. We had a reservation, but still had to wait 15 mins before being seated. Once seated and ordered, our food came out about 45 mins after ordering and sadly my steak was raw. I didn’t send it back bc I didn’t want to wait longer. Overall, a bummer, especially given the amount spent. Not sure that I would return to this location.

    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.
