    We had an amazing time and dinner at Capital Grille for our first wedding anniversary. Our waiter, Olivia was sweet, personable and perfectly attentive without being overbearing. Food was spot on, drinks were also great. Crab cocktail never misses, my husband really enjoyed the tuna tartare and his sliced filet with mushrooms and figs. My filet was cooked to perfection and the Au Gratin potatoes were fantastic.

    Bad idea to visit on a Penguins game night. Noisy, noisy, noisy. We were looking forward to a quiet, romantic evening. Shrimp cocktail was over cooked the day before. The shrimp were old and hard. I would have appreciated a wine list. I asked and was told of the two Cabernets they carried. “One is from Washington state and the other is from Napa”: Entrees of steak and lamb chops were very good.

    We enjoyed a very nice meal at the Capital Grille in Pittsburgh to celebrate my son’s birthday. Thomas our server was both attentive and took fantastic care of us. Nice strong pour on our Manhattans and Old Fashion cocktails. We loved our filet’s and porterhouse steaks! Sides of asparagus, potatoes au gratin, and the mushrooms were delicious. Our Caesar salads were crisp, called and tasty. Desserts of Crème brûlée and coconut pie were the finale and finished off perfectly out great meal and night! We recommend stopping here for a great meal and night out!

    My mother, my wife and I had the Thanksgiving feast. We ordered the sweet potatoes and the pumpkin cheesecake for dessert. We enjoyed glasses of a delicious rose wine. The cheesecake was extra special due to the carmelized sugar topping which was crunchy and offset the almost-mousselike texture of the cheesecake. We will definitely return to this restaurant in the future.

    Second year that we've had Thanksgiving dinner here and have loved it both times. Our friend, who is a traditionalist, enjoys the turkey dinner, while my husband and I are happy to order from among the excellent beef offerings. The staff at the bar and in the restaurant are all very friendly in spite of working on a holiday and it being a bit chaotic. This year we were seated at exactly our reservation time. Justin, our server, was great -- very friendly and on top of all our requests. We won't hesitate to dine here again, especially on a holiday.

    Made reservations weeks ago to celebrate Thanksgiving at the Capitol Grille… Where we go often and always have a lovely experience. This time it was extremely crowded… CG made way too many reservations in my opinion… They sat us in the bar where it was very loud and uncomfortable. When we asked to move, they said it would be 40 minutes until a table in the dining room became available. The food although delicious , was cold… I don’t recommend going to Capital Grill for holidays. We’ll be exploring some other options downtown over the next few months, as this experience has been quite a disappointment. I would also add that the wine available by the glass is less than ideal. I can’t drink the chemicals in California wines - and prefer French or Spanish choices- but there were none. I REALLY would have enjoyed a glass of wine with my dinner- and now the wine cubbies where regular customers can store their bottles makes a lot of sense.

    We had another great Thanksgiving meal at The Capital Grille. As always, the food was delicious and servings were generous. Nolan was very personable and patient as our elderly relatives navigated the menu. He kept a close eye on our table and anticipated everyone’s needs without ever being intrusive. When Nolan realized that my mother-in-law needed GF options, he double checked to ensure that his recommendations would keep her safe. All in all, a wonderful experience!

    Every time we dine at The Capital Grille it’s an amazing experience. Ever since the first time we had Victoria as our waitress we have requested her ever since. She provides the best guest experience I have had at a restaurant time and time again. The food and atmosphere is beyond what you’d expect, which is what you want from the best restaurant in Pittsburgh. If you’re looking for a perfect night out, request Victoria and she will take care of everything!

    Of course we all understand this is an expensive venue. My NY steak was not good at all. The center was correctly cooked, but it was significantly overly charred and tasted like eating a charcoal briquet - not at all tasty. Staff was friendly, but the restaurant was very loud and we found difficult to have a conversation.
