Great dining experience at The Capital Grill. The ambience was very romantic. The highlight of the evening what’s the bone in strip steak! Truly memorable. Great waiter; had several employees tell us happy anniversary which is very impressive. Will be back!

We got there at about 4 o’clock – just before their shift change over. Our waiter had trouble finding our wine selection and the Caesar salad it was wilted. The manager came over and said he would try to make things right but then he left and we were ultimately charged full price for everything he admitted that at that price point the salad needed to be fresh but apparently didn’t do anything to communicate it to the next manager. It is a trend that we’ve noticed throughout and I don’t just capital Grille but elsewhere. There is a steady slide toward mediocrity.

The service was excellent . The ribeye was a little fatty but cooked well. Asparagus was delicious. I love the booth. We could hear and it was not noisy at all. We always eat here .

A pleasure to eat here. Great staff, receptionist, chefs. Bacon appetizer was amazingly sinful and tasted fantastic. Lamb chops was very tasty, 8 ribs, and will be good as leftovers as I could not finish it. Wife had sliced steak and she had to take half home as well. Will go again.
Cold seafood appetizer feast looked amazing when it came out at other tables. Next time I am ordering that!

The food was delicious. The service was so amazing. The staff noticed my fiancé and I were having date night, and they treated us to champagne, a free cocktail, and a beautiful desert plate. I highly recommend.

The food was excellent as we experienced in the past. The salads were crisp/very fresh, the steaks were prepared exactly as we requested and the deserts were the perfect finish to the evening. The only issue was the service was not upto the standard as we have come to expect. We had an early reservation time (4:30) because we drive in from out of town and normally like to get home before to late. It appeared that the regular wait staff arrives later (between 5 and 5:30) to manage the evening crowd. I can tell that the person that waited on us was dressed differently (no jacket) than the wait staff that arrived later. I interpreted that the person that waited on us was not at the same level of experience. This is the first blemish we have experienced and based on this, we'll need to adjust our reservation time to 6:00 or later on our next visit. I still highly recommend the Capital Grille.

Went to Capital Grille for a celebration. Our waiter Gary was very good considering it seemed that the restaurant seemed short-handed. One of our steak food order came out well instead of what was ordered as medium. We didn't make a fuss since we know how difficult it's been for restaurants to get people to work. The manager did come by our table to apologize - which is always nice. Even though we declined any compensation of the steak mishap, we were offered a free dessert. All around the service was good.

We've been to other CGs before and have always had great experience. We're writing this one off as a Covid-related experience. Hopefully, they will be back to normalcy.

We have been to Capital Grille multiple times and have always had a good experience until last night. I had asked for and was told I would have a table away from the kitchen in a quiet area.
The table we were seated at was right by the kitchen. It was very noisy and annoying. Four of my guests ordered the 10 oz Filet. Two of them were supposed to be cooked medium plus. They were barely cooked Sent them back and they came back overcooked and very tough. The Filet for my other two guests were also very tough. It was a very disappointing and expensive experience. I would like to think it was just an “off night” because we have always enjoyed our dinners at Capital Grille.

The hash brown under my lobster frittata was hard and nearly inedible. The lighting was dark and ominous on Mother’s Day when it was noon. You could have done better. The service was great though.

We sat at the bar. Our service was slow and sloppy — and they were not busy.
Servers did not know answers for what is Gfree.
Lobster bisque was a special and it was tasteless and too thick and lukewarm. They were also out of salmon.

Night out for me away from kitchen and categiving. Enjoyed perfectly cooked sea bass entree while husband enjoyed the land chops. Waiter in training did great. She was very attentive and knew what she was doing even though she had an experienced staffer shadowing her. Always a great experience at Capital!
