I am glad Capital Grill is open. The Delmonico Steak is amazing.
The only complaint is they did not remove crumbs from the table and they made me box all my leftovers. Perrys, even with the virus, will box it for me. Aside from that, great service.

Dinner with my wife and two UT students.Our waiter and his team were excellent. The reason for the lower star rating for ambience and noise level came fro a loud and foul mouthed table very close to outs. Not much anyone could have done about an profanity spewing inebriated fool who loved to hear himself shout. He paid as much as anyone eating there that night so no one would want to ask him to quiet down, much less to leave. The food and service were very good as always.

Last night I had some of the worst service of my life provided by Ms. Kelly W.

To start, it took her about 10 minutes to find us and order our drinks. With the drinks we also through in some apps, salads, etc. By the time we finished our oysters and salads, the drinks finally made it to the table (about 30 minutes later). She had opportunity to serve an extra 2 cocktails to each guest at our table had she been attentive. The food was excellent, but we could tell it had been sitting under the lamps for a bit because the sauce had dried to the plate. She did not come back to check in on our meals after dropping them. In fact, we couldnt find her after dinner at all to order our dessert. We finally caught her and ordered desserts along with asking for the check. She brought the bill which we paid. The desserts then came. She never checked back to see how our dessert was or to thank us for our business. She went to the server station and started rolling silverware instead. How rude. We had an 8 pm reservation so it wasnt like we were keeping her late.

Fine service and food, but not quite memorable. Felt like a chain (it is); we rank several other Austin-area steakhouses better, for similar prices. The South African lobster tails were a highlight, but we’ve had plenty of comparable-to-superior steaks in Austin.

Food was great! Service was just average. When I am paying top dollar — I expect white glove service. I didn’t get that. Instead — I had to look for the waiter on a couple of occasions. Also, they didn’t seem to have a lot bus staff to help pitch in.

Order the seafood tower every time you go. Also, if you're a fan of intense flavors, order dry aged steaks over everything else. You won't be disappointed.

I don't think this restaurant is one of those that I would feel comfortable recommending given our experience last night. The service was so so slow and our steaks were overdone. We waited over 20 minutes after our reservation time as well. To be honest, we just couldn't wait for our four hour dinner to finally be over--the service just dragged and dragged. On the flip side, if you do decide to go, I can recommend the calamari appetizer which was spicy and delicious.

I have been to The Capital Grille in Houston many times and had impecable food and service. But this was my first visit to the Austin location. One of my friends ordered the lobster bisque she sent it back because it had no flavor. I did not realize she sent hers back and I ordered it, it was pretty good but I found a shrimp shell in it. I didnt tell the server because I had just sent back limp fried oysters! The server said he would take it off the bill but he did not.
I ordered a wedge salad, I did not eat because the dressing was unedable. We ordered the Grand Plateau it was good but it took our server over 30 minutes to come take our order after leaving the Grand Pleateau. The only thing I enjoyed was the bread and cocktails. Sadly I will not be back, such a disapointment expecally after going to Trulucks the weekend before.
