The Capital Grille - Austin Ratings and Reviews
Preparing high end steak is an art form for steakhouses like the Capital Grille, Vince Young's etc. There must be a least 6-8 of them within walking distance of each other in downtown Austin.
We had never been to the Capital Grille before. It is a very nice, clubby sort of environment with soft lighting and lots of wood, the noise level was low to moderate and we could speak easily with each other. An easy setting for lingering over dinner.
We had three different types of salads which were very good, but not inspiring. The steak service however, was a disaster. One dish was cooked to the wrong temperature; one dish which was delivered was not what was ordered; the third steak was ok but tough - my wife said the quality of this steak was no better than that which we can get at Costco. The only standout were the scallops, they were large, meaty and perfectly broiled.
I won't rank this as the best steakhouse in Austin and you can even get better steaks at a standard restaurant.
Capital Grille did not disappoint.I made the reservation for 5 for my son's birthday. We asked if we could sit at the bar for a before dinner drink and there was no problem! My Kettle One Martini was spot on! When we arrived at the table, there was a special touch, they had sprinkled Happy Birthday confetti on the tablets well as a personal note. I ordered the filet and honestly it was one of the best steaks I have ever had. I am pretty picky, so hats off! I asked for medium rare and it was cooked to perfection. The service was great. Kyle was attentive but not overly intrusive. The wine selection was great as well. I would highly recommend Capital Grille.
It was nice for a date. Waited about 30 minutes after our reservation time for a table. Servers were excellent. Food was good, but not worth the price. Steak was great quality, but overcooked. Calamari was great, just wish there was a dipping sauce to go along with. Loud dining room, but dark and romantic.
I took my son to the restaurant for his birthday. Our table was decorated with confetti and there was a card from the restaurant. All very festive but understated and classic. The food and service was first class as expected from a restaurant with the reputation of Capital Grille. Well worth the price and the event I had hoped for to celebrate his birthday.
We had a wonderful evening in celebration of our anniversary. They had a special table ready and decorated and the service and atmosphere is wonderful! We really enjoyed ourselves and felt at home and well cared for! Great experience and great steaks! Thank you Capital Grill!!
We dined on oysters for an appetizer and shared a New York strip and a side of sprouts. The service and ambiance are great and it is nice dining in an establishment that you can hear each talk. We have eaten here previously and the food I would describe as good but not great.
Phenomenal in every way! Complimentary champagne just because our fabulous waiter, Ron, paid attention to the fact that we were celebrating an important event! The tenderloin topped with lobster was perfect to share. The lobster mac and cheese was YUMMY as were the brussel sprouts! Bread and more bread was excellent, great varied assortment, and the desserts were over the top. We ordered the light and airy coconut crime pie. Ron surprised us yet again with a complimentary "congratulations" dessert platter too! It had the chocolate torte and brûlée cheesecake. The cheesecake was decidedly our favorite! One long stem red rose and this restaurant made our top five (and we eat out 2-3 times a week).
The service and ambiance was amazing but the food didn't live up to the hype, especially for the price. While the steak was good it wasn't $50 good and that was a tad disappointing. But the other aspects of the dining experience were amazing. Recommend especially if the food is just a touch better.
This is not our first visit to the Capital Grille nor will it be our last. We discovered this gem last year and it has become our go-to place for fine dinning. Since our fist visit, our server was and will always Ron Bruscia. He is a professional who does an exceptional job in looking after the needs of his patrons with a velvet touch.
This was an anniversary dinner and the extra effort and attention that went to our experience was fantastic. Thank you Ron and The Capital Grille.
This place is a classic, reliable steakhouse. The service was impeccable and our food was delicious. We enjoyed a wine tasting with our meal and our server was so informative and helpful. I recommend the lobster mac and cheese with any meal. I have never had a bad experience or a bad meal here!
