    Food was fantastic as always. Service was good. Didn't like that they squeezed a big group of 12 into the space by us and I felt like they were on top of us and we were part of their group. They were also very loud

    The waitress was well below the standard of service I have come to expect from Capital Grille. She got my order completely wrong and I wasn’t going to make a scene in front of my colleagues. Then she got the dessert order wrong for others at the table. The food was very good. She regularly interrupted the very engaging conversation we were having, saying things like she heard us mention the city she grew up in and tried to interject herself in the conversation. Her whole demeanor was rather unprofessional. Her style of service is better suited to a Chillies or Olive Garden, not Capital Grille.

    We visited for our wedding anniversary so happens to coincide with restaurant week every year. Food drinks and service where exceptional as always. Wife was a bit sad she did not get her Crème brûlée , though the house did buy us a cheese cake and flourless chocolate cake on a beautifully decorated plate.

    Our host did not make feel very welcomed. As African Americans we have always been placed in the rears. We were offered to sit directly across from the kitchen; we kindly declined then we were offered a seat in the rear booth not far from the kitchen. We kindly declined again; we were offered a large booth which was okay. Our host I believe her name was Angie was amazing and very caring to our needs she ensured we were pleased with service and food. We were very pleased with our server but not so much for our hostess.

    Easily my weakest experience at Capital Grille, Minneapolis. Host stand was a mess. Waiter attempted to take our order without writing anything down and mixed up the temperature of our steaks. Bar was out of several items for cocktails. Very disappointing for what is always a great spot.

    The food and service (our waiter, Bjorn) was fabulous. I feel I must mention that we were told the day of our reservation, during the confirmation phone call that dress must be business casual attire - no shorts, tee shirts, sweat pants, caps, etc. Upon arrival, there were many tables where people were wearing tee shirts, jerseys, sweat pants and caps. A table seated after us had everyone at the table in this attire. If you are going to have a dress code, then enforce it.
