Ryan is an excellent server! There and engaged when we needed him but, not overbearing. We were able to thoroughly enjoy our evening without feeling rushed!
And Gabriela was absolutely LOVELY! A wonderful addition!
Everyone made our homecoming, after almost 3 years overseas, that much better!
Lori Ann was great
Very nice dessert for our 25th Wedding anniversary
Bad experience with waitress. Had to change our waitress. She spent more time flirting with a waiter than attending to her tables. My wife and I eat out a lot and capital grill has always been on our list that we rotate through. Going to drop off list for a while. Why put up with crappy service when you do not have too ?
Capital Grill, as always was very good. It was a Grandson Birthday and our anniversary. Cocktails and wine service were 5-star. The two complimentary desserts were generous and very tasty, A great evening.
We were in town for a conference and found this restaurant on a google search. Lori Ann was our waitress 2 out of the 3 nights we came and she was fabulous. The food was great, the drinks were fabulous and the server AMAZING!!!
A more detailed review will be posted on yelp, but for now let's just agree that every single food and drink item was excellent.
It was good not great. Ordered steaks med rare, got medium. Lobster bisque we caught shell... just things like that. A fine experience, but not worth the price point...
Our server (Mud) gave our group of 8 several menu recommendations which (fortunately) we took. Great restaurant!
Loved the live music and my steak was fantastic! The bar service was incredible!!
We are frequent diners and always love capital grille and recommend it. However we both order the filet and it was too charred on the outside cuasi f it to be dry. It was burnt and gave it an overall burnt taste. We’ve ordered before and it’s been great.
The service was great, food was great, and overall is was a awesome experience.
Birthday for wife and they did an amazing job of making it a special dinner for her. Sprinkle stars and birthday wishes all over the table and gift card with birthday card too. The waiter we had was the best ever.
Excellent food & service
My husband was pleasantly surprised with our table decorated nicely.
Our server was nice, but not helpful when we had questions about the menu...food and drinks.
We also were left for long periods of time without being checked on when we wanted to order another drink....
Outstanding! From the food, to the service all the way to the environment! Great place to have a work / team dinner.
Birthday dinner was excellent and the complementary dessert with candles really nice touch
This is the place I chose to celebrate my husband's birthday dinner and boy it did not disappoint! I asked for a quiet corner and we were seated in a nice corner booth. Our table was decorated with glittery birthday sprinkles and a sweet birthday card. Food was incredible, hubby had the wagyu beef with a side of potatoes. The steak was incredible! Portions were large enough for next day leftovers. Our waiter was so attentive and made sure every course was what we were expecting. The end of the dinner came with a beautiful sample of birthday desserts served on a beautiful platter, all on the house! Highly recommend this ace for a special or romantic night out!
We sat at the bar and the the service was incredible! David our bartender was over the top with his attention to detail. 10 oz Filet rare plus and 32 oz Bone In Ribeye cooked to absolute perfection. We literally got 5 sides and the damn Lobster m&c, to die for! We had an amazing experience, don’t over look the bar, killer atmosphere and outstanding service. One of the best CG in the nation, just sayin!
Experience was great. Will be back. Thank you
We had server Greg. The service wasn't horrible but Greg could have done a better job. He did not clear used plates from table, we had mounds of seafood shells from the plateau. He checked on us 2x throughout the whole meal. We received more conversation with the manager than our server. He noticed I did not have a napkin so I had to get up and wash my hands in restroom. When I returned, he brought out hot towels. Dessert was brought out and no coffee offered nor did we have a napkins again. Basically we could have received better service from other servers at restaurant as we have dined here more than several times. He packed our leftovers and when we came home, not all leftovers were in bag. Ugh! The food was amazing as usual but our waiter served as little as possible.
Everything was wonderful!!! Great restaurant to celebrate a birthday!!!
Everything was great. Our server Ron helped us a bunch with menu descriptions and suggestions. It was a very busy Friday but we never felt rushed. Soup salad mains and a complementary dessert for Lisa’s Birthday all were excellently prepared and served. Complementary glasses of champagne to start were very kind. We’ve continued to rely upon Capital Grille for many years and will do so in the future.
Food was good to very good! Service poor to terrible. Value? $30. for a GLASS of wine?? Please!
Jayme took great care of us... walking in the door, one breathes... it is elegant and quiet. The menu is one page so we didn’t feel overwhelmed with too many choices. The steaks were the best we have ever had... grilled to perfection and each side, we ordered, was delicious. From the start to finish, we were wowed. Go there and just breathe, enjoy the tastes, breathe, do everything slowly. The Capital Grille is a place that deserves to be savored in this very fast paced world. A true gem here in Austin. I would expect this in NYC but it is here in our own backyard
Hands down, best place for an elegant and romantic birthday celebration for two. The food was delicious and the service was extraordinary.
The food was amazing, and the waiter was everything! I celebrated my birthday there, and it was perfect. I cannot wait to go back again.
The food, ambiance, wait staff, service overall was spectacular. The cocktails and wine options are amazing. I’ve never been disappointed.
Superb dining experience. Food was amazing and service was excellent. The staff went above an beyond to make my birthday dining wonderful. We enjoyed the wine tasting and chefs selections were perfect. Three os us dined on a three course meal with wine tasting for a very reasonable value. We will return.
Our waiter, Ryan, and the General Manager, could not have been nicer. The "Happy Birthday" decorations on our table for my partner, the complimentary dessert with a candle, and the gift card on her way out the door were such classy touches and made for a very special evening for us. Thank you so much!
This is a very nice steak house in Austin. People were friendly and it was old school genteel inside.
The good part:
We lucked out and visited during restaurant week so the pre-fix menu was about the price of a steak, and included soup or salad, a side, and mini-dessert. The filet and the kona sauced steak were wonderful.
Another happy accident-they were having what they called the “generous pour.” My wife got a wine flight with seven different small glasses of wine for $28!
The not great part:
I said when booking that this was a special occasion but there was no confetti on the table (as seen on other tables) or any other acknowledgement of the special occasion.
The waiter was pretty stiff and seemed to have memorized talking points. At no time did I get the impression he cared about us one way or the other. Had to ask to get more iced tea during dinner.
When the bill came the waiter had forgotten to charge us for the wine flight but had charged us for two iced teas. We told him about the mistakes and he added the wine but forget to take off the second tea. By that time we did not want to wait again so just paid the bill and took the $4 off the tip.
Not sure if I would go back - there are so many wonderful place to eat in Austin that I would give 5 stars. Was hoping for a more special night to celebrate my daughter being pinned as a Registered Nurse.
Fantastic food and service. The filet mignon was like cutting butter. All around 10/10 experience.
The Capital Grill creates an awesome experience for celebrating a special occasion.
Excellent waitstaff and food; much too generous servings. Loved the “generous pours” wine tasting. Will definitely return.
The restaurant week portions are much, much smaller then last years. The food was delicious.
This was a family dinner to celebrate a birthday. They did an outstanding job in every aspect. Very nice atmosphere with just enough light to clearly see the menu. Every dish was prepared perfectly but our shared favorite was the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella with heirloom tomatoes. Our waiter made helpful suggestions and did not over sell. All in all a wonderful evening and a great value.
What a great evening! Thanks to MJ and all of the amazing staff! These days it’s expensive to take a family out for a nice meal so restaurant selection is important! This one got it right on every level:)! Their attention to detail is exceptional and the food wonderful! So appreciate all that you did to make our evening so happy! Will be so happy to return!!
My wife and I visited The Capital Grille for 2 reasons.....one we had a $150 gift certificate and we made reservations for the restaurant week.
A positive was that the manager came over and introduced himself. And he allowed my wife to substitute a different salad not listed for the restaurant week menu.
The negative was that my wife did the upgrade of $12 for the lobster tails. But only one quite small one was given to her.The waiter noted this and remedied the situation by getting her another one and apologizing.
The sides were extremely small as well as the desserts. We realize that the menu is different for restaurant week!! But the size of the sides was just enough for one person.
I don’t think we will return to the Capital Grille!!! Even for restaurant week, they should have had more with the sides.
