Fantastic dinner experience. We had a 915pm reservation. It was my first time dining here. The staff was friendly and courteous as soon as we walked in. The atmosphere is warm and intimate. Our waiter Andrew was excellent. He walked us through the dinner experience from the wine list through dessert. We started with a delicious shrimp cocktail and a glass of champagne. Then moved to a classic flavorful ceasar salad with a glass of chardonnay and my spouse had a pinot grigio. For our main course I selected the beef tenderloin and lobster tail and my spouse had beef tenderloin. They were prepared exactly to our liking. We paired this with a Spanish red blend wine.
Everything was fantastic! It was my husband’s birthday and everyone went above and beyond to make it special for him!
Hands down the best restaurant I've ever had the pleasure of dining at. 10/10 would recommend
Everything was amazing including our waiter Chris!! Brought me samples of the wine claiming “we will find the right one” after I said I wasn’t too crazy about the first glass he suggested. A little noisy but nothing extreme. Definitely pricey but totally worth it!
Andrew went above and beyond! Great experience!!
Very disappointed by the service and especially the food. I normally take people to Eddie V’s but because I like Capital Grill in Dallas I thought it was worth a try. We had wine that seemed like it went bad. The steaks were not cooked well and had a weird taste. Even the mushrooms for the steaks tasted cool and tasteless. The server was ok but seemed u happy when we said the wine was bad. Overall I was very unhappy and it would take a lot to get me to come back. Thanks
Had been to Capital Grille before and while a bit pricey, the food was always stellar. However, this last visit (on Mother's day) was a bit underwhelming. Both my son and I ordered the dry-aged NY strips and we were very disappointed in the flavor or lack thereof. If I'm paying more than $50 for steak, I should never need to use salt on it and it should be cooked to perfection. Both steaks were charred on the outside and cooked closer to medium as opposed to medium rare which is how we ordered it. I couldn't even finish mine.
My wife ordered a filet cooked medium and it was served closer to well done. This was flagged for the server and to their credit, she had a new steak that was cooked perfectly in less than 10 mins. From what I have noticed over the years, the majority of people order their steaks at medium temperature, so it's very surprising that a restaurant like Capital Grille will struggle with cooking for what the majority wants.
On a more positive note, the service was outstanding and the coconut cream pie we had for dessert was one of the best desserts I've ever had.
We had a lovely Mother's Day dinner! The food was delicious and our server was so awesome!
Great place to celebrate a special occasion; delicious food in a cozy ambience
The service was incredible. Our server was so very kind and personable. I also received a Mother's Day gift which was a thoughtful touch. This will be our new restaurant for special family celebrations.
Took my wife and kids to the Mother's Day brunch and had an excellent experience.
A big thank you to my hubby for giving me such a fun & exciting birthday weekend here in ATX!! 🥰 This was just an overall amazing dining experience! The restaurant decorated our table for my birthday which was a nice touch! Our server made us feel welcomed, was attentive, brought me a pretty pink birthday martini & even brought out a round of "Stoli Dolis" mini martinis for "cheering"!🎉
We had the lobster and crab cakes, lobster bisque filled with chunks of lobster, a melt in your mouth Filet Mignon prepared "Oscar style" with a side of lobster mac & cheese & asparagus ~ all of it exceeded our expectations/preferences!
But the birthday dessert platter deserved it's own praise! Expresso chocolate cake with fresh berries and crème brûlée cheesecake🍰 each one so rich in flavor!! So deelish!
This steakhouse had all the wonderful elements that made for a perfect dining experience!!💖🎉#birthdayfun #birthdaymonth #celebration #atx #foodies #cocktails #datenight #thecapitalgrill #dessert #chocolatecake #cremebruleècheesecake
We loved this place. Celebrated on a whim, my daughter’s birthday and a mother daughter weekend. Made a last minute reservation and they knocked it out of the park with special treats and divine service. Definitely a do!
Excellent service from Emily
We enjoy the Capital Grille, have dined at several locations. The reason for four stars is that our high end steaks were served on an very cold plate.
Our server, Evan, was the epitome of professionalism and graciousness, and the food was superbly prepared. A personable, competent server can turn a good experience into a truly memorable evening.Thank you for another wonderful night at Capital Grille, one of our very favorite restaurants.
Ron was very attentive to us and made great suggestions from wine to the entrees.
Bone in porterhouse was great. Wine selection was terrific! Apple dessert hit the spot.
Lobster and filet over cooked
Too much salt on lamb
Otherwise, nice sauces
Good wine prices
Excellent service as always! We went there for a special celebration and had a wonderful time. Our waiter Jason is very professional and took a good care of us. Very nice dinning experience and can not wait to go back! This is our second time eating at Austin’s Capital grille. We are an usual customer in their Plano restaurant.
It was our 8 years anniversary and we had a great time at the Capital Grille. I do not regret taking my wife to this place because we love it. Outstanding server Anthony did a great job, the welcome was excellent, roses on our special anniversary table, desert for two in the end with our photo taken, printed and framed by server. We'll come back for sure.
If you want a wonderful meal with fabulous service, then go to The Capital Grille-We had our Easter Family Dinner there, and it was amazing. Madison, our server, he was great-personable and made our evening special! We live in Dripping Springs and made the drive in to "Downtown" because of the experience I had last time for a work function. It was worth it!
We’ve been frequent customers of Capital Grill for years, Chicago, Lombard and Austin. It’s one of our favorite places but more recently it can be inconsistent. First, always offer to decant a good bottle of wine. It needs to breath! When a customer asks for plain steamed green beans they just want beans, no onions, tomatoes etc.,your salads are getting pretty skimpy, I can get a better salad at Salt Grass Steakhouse. We’re now three for three in having to send a steak back to cook it properly at the Austin location. Still one of our favorite places but quality and service is slipping.
Great Easter brunch. Excellent food and service from a waiter whose name is Mudd...no reallly! Take mom and the visitors Old school fine dining.
We came here for Easter Brunch which was nice. We arrived a little early and our table was already ready for us. Jackie was our server and she was generally good. The brunch prix fixe menu included coffee, tea, fresh squeezed juices, and soda; however, none of these were ever offered to us in addition to the cocktails we ordered. When we did request grapefruit juice it came, was not fresh squeezed, and was charged to our bill. While Jackie did take care of the charge at the end of the meal it shouldn't have been an issue. Some tables received roses as an Easter gift, but we were not offered any. Food was good, but not terribly hot when it was delivered from the kitchen. The ladies bathroom was in need of attention both times I visited it (and even mentioned that it needed to be refreshed after the first time). I would give this location another try, but definitely not the best Capital Grille I've visited.
It was a friends birthday. We ordered steaks both medium well and the steaks were rushed. It was so rare and bloody. We were very very disappointed in the meal we paid quite a bit for. We didn’t report it to our waiter because it was a few minutes to closing and we didn’t want to wait longer.
Great meal with great friends. Can't wait to go back.
Capital Grille always our favorite place for a perfect dinner. We havetreied every steakhouse downtown but Capital has the best service, food, ambience, bar and they are consistent and we always know it will be excellent. We have tried Perry’s and although the food is excellent the service, bar and attention to detail can be lacking. Capital Grille alway our choice!
Absolutely delicious meal and service, everything was top notch!!
Perfect place for that special occasion meal. Moderate noise level, but conversations still can be heard. Superior wait staff, and a culinary delight.
This is one of my favorite restaurants. I go all the time in Chicago. We decided to try is for our anniversary in Austin. The food was amazing. I got a rose, we had free dessert and our waiter was amazing! We also had rose petals on our table! Love it. You must have the pineapple Martini!
Thanks for having gluten-free options.
Usually go to Truluck's anytime friends come into town but they could not accommodate us this time so we tried Capital Grille. The service was amazing, the food was outstanding and the managing partner Jasmine Peterson went out of her way to make sure we were very happy. Thank you for everything and we will be back soon!
Excellent meal. The steaks were cooked to order-from well done to medium rare-and the crab cakes were yummy.
Service was amazing. The food was outstanding. It’s pricey but well worth the price with quality food and service.
Grat place, excelente flod
Excellent service and excellent food. The oysters were one of the largest I’ve ever had. The wagyu steak was one of the best I’ve ever had - makes the top 3. It’s fine dining. The only drawback is the price - but if you want excellence, I suppose you have to pay for it. I’d be back if/when I visit Austin
An exceptional place for dinner. My brother and I feasted on oysters on the half shell, filet minon and a great 2014 bottle of Shafer hillside select cab. Service was amazing and we are looking forward to our next visit.
Hosted a business dinner recently. Service was excellent! Would not hesitate to have dinner at The Capital Grill again.
