    We made reservations for 8:45 PM in the lounge and weren’t seated until almost 9:30 PM. That’s a long time to wait when you’ve made a reservation in advance.

    Seated early for a 530 reservation (dinner prior to an event). Our waiter was nice enough but was pressuring us to order quickly, presumably to flip the table. After he came for a 3rd time within 15 minutes to ask for mains while we were still enjoying appetizers, he finally got the hint and gave us some space. Which then led to the opposite problem…we received food and took over 10 minutes for someone to check in. And the food- beyond mediocre and beyond overpriced. Cocktails priced fine, apps about 20% over priced…but dinner was god awful. First, no mention of sauces on the menu for your steak. The waiter did share when I asked. Second, the food itself. Asparagus was delicious, lightly dress with lemon and well cooked. But that’s where the praises end. The potatoes au gratin we’re slightly undercooked and over breaded, which a cheese sauce consistency like it was past it’s primes and the ingredients were separating. The filets and the sauce were the worst however. Over salted and overcooked filet that lacked the traditional sear, and the red wine Demi glacé was like drinking a glass of beef flavored salt water. Legitimately inedible. The waiter did correct this when I asked; and brought a flight of 3 sauces; bernaise, shallot, and the house made steak sauce. The steak sauce and shallot sauce were wonderful. We also really enjoyed the bread, although the butter should be softened. Additionally, in a steakhouse that prides itself on the air of sophistication it tries to portray, it deeply falls short of the mark in atmosphere, service, and prior. You are much better off going to Mooo or Grill 23. Hell even Del Friscos is better.

    We visited the Capital Grille for my boyfriend’s birthday, and were welcomed with a signed card by the staff and decorations on the table. Along with their usual excellent service, they gave us a special dessert as well to cap off our meal. The food was incredible as expected but the service really made this dinner special!

    Went for New Years Eve! Had a great meal and a wonderful waitress! Her name was Molly. She made sure she ran through fun cocktails, specials and was just super when it came to making sure we didn’t feel rushed. Again-Food was amazing, I have to say the CapitAl Grill never disappoints.

    Everything was great. the only comment was that we arrived for our noon reservations 15 minutes early and had to stand outside before they unlocked the doors. The only concern about that is that the outside temp was in the teen's and windchills in the single digits. They should have opened the doors to allow patrons inside to get out of the weather.
