    When you travel to a city like Austin, you want to experience a truly local dining experience. But sometimes out of necessity or convenience, you gravitate to the familiar, such as our visit to the Capital Grille. This was a terrific meal with outstanding service.

    The food was fantastic and our server, Matthew Lee Smith was exceptional. We also had a bottle of Merryvale 2015 Profile which was some of the best wine I’ve had in a long time.

    The reason for the less than favorable ambiance review is due to our initial experience upon arrival. The guest in front of us had brought his pet and all the hostess were petting and allowing the dog to lick all over their hands. She then proceeded to try to grab our menus without washing her hands to which she was immediately stopped and we asked to get our own. One of my leaders had a bad dog allergy and the lack of consideration of pets and transferring their saliva was unhygienic and a bad way to start dinner. The only reason we didn’t leave was bc another director had already driven extensively to this restaurant.

    Made a table reservation long before our anniversary dinner night and needless to say the dinner met our expectations… and more. We were happy upon arriving and even more so upon leaving. The service, the food, the ambiance couldn’t be more superior. Definitely go back next time in Austin.

    Needs a better, somewhat more reasonably priced wine list. Steak was wonderful as usual. We had a mushroom risotto as a side dish and I highly recommend it. Julia was our server and was spectacular. Parking downtown is always tough but with the valet stand now right in front it's better.

    If I could give 10 stars I would. When traveling I like to find a nice restaurant and The Capital Grille Austin was top on the reviews list. The waiter Robert was phenomenal, his service was beyond professional and tentative. I took a chance and tried all of his recommendations from appetizers, entrée, and sides. Every course of the meal was off the charts. I will always visit The Capital Grille when visiting Austin and ask for Robert.

    Capital Grille is our go to for steaks. The best mashed potatoes I’ve ever had as well. The Stoli Doli pineapple martini is a must. Robert was our server and he was excellent. Attentive and friendly without hovering over the table. Overall the dinner was superb The food at the CG is always consistent. Don’t forget the cheesecake and espresso martini to end the night.

    As always, a great meal at CG. The service, however, was a bit below par. The appetizer and salad came out at the same time which was a bit odd and, while probably not intended, sent a message that they were trying to rush us out on a busy Father's Day. Then we order the creamed corn, the waiter confirmed with "the creamed spinach is a great pick" to which we corrected and said, no, creamed corn please. When the entrees arrived, we were delivered the spinach....they replaced it with corn but again, the service was a bit clunky and not up to CG's standards

    We enjoyed another dinner celebration at the Capital Grille! The food is excellent: we had the lobster and crab cakes appetizers, the fried calamari and everyone's favorite: the tuna tartare. The lobster bisque is another favorite and the salads are unique. The entrees which included both steaks and seafood, were all perfectly cooked and supreme. The wine list is extensive with choices for everyone and Nick, as always did and excellent job serving the table and timing every course perfectly. Overall, we had an unparalleled experience and will soon return for another culinary treat!
