Our server, Layne, was really great, as usual. She gives excellent service, is friendly, knowledgeable and right on top of things. If they were all like her, it would be wonderful. Most are good as well. She really kept our coffee refilled and hot and checked on us from time to time

My husband and I came here for our wedding anniversary and our waitress Alyssa was the best host and had the best recommendations. The manager visited our table and was very gracious with complimentary champagne and the tastiest brownie and ice cream for two people with a little candle just a perfect way to end our evening.

Service was lackluster, which is disappointing for such a high-end restaurant. Our service didn't seem particularly interested in us and food took forever. When asked he just kept repeating it would be soon.

This is our third visit of the summer for the generous pour yearly event. We have been coming for this since 2009 2 or 3 times each year. What a special event this has been over the years. Our server Mr Mark Wiedorfer certainly knows our taste in wine and food. The manager and his team always greet us and treat us with respect during our dining experience. Thanks CapitalGrill. Cheers Danny and Elaine Moffett

While planning our trip to the Baltimore Antique Show, my dad and I decided we wanted to have a fancy steak dinner on Friday evening. The Capital Grille exceeded all of our expectations. The food was fantastic, the service friendly without intruding, and no one judged us for showing up soaked through due to getting caught in a rain storm on the walk over. The steak tartar, one of our favorites, was exquisite. Three days later, we are still talking about the meal and the experience.

The server disappeared for 40 minutes. We ordered drinks and appetisers but we did not see our server for 40 minutes we could not order another drink or order our entrees. The long wait ruined the evening. We were hoping for a romantic dinner, however, we were seated in the bar area, it was noisy and lots of activity.

Celebrated anniversary. Table was decorated with hearts, along with a thoughtful note. Our waiter, Katie, was lovely and attentive. The food, sliced filet and kona NY strip, along with mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts, was out of this world. We were given a complimentary chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream to celebrate.

Our service was very good. Unfortunately, we went there with our family to celebrate our son going off to his freshman year at college. He ordered his meal the meat was so fatty he couldn’t cut the meat. Received a new meal , filet, that was more or less raw. Completely turned him off, and disappointing experience for him. Not sure we would return for another family dinner.

Went to the Capital Grille for our anniversary dinner date. Out table had a card wishing us Happy Anniversary and heart confetti - nice touch. Josh was very attentive without being intrusive, he made great suggestions on our meals and a very good wine. Was very impressed that the managers visited each table to ensure the dining experience was top notch. Very enjoyable evening.

We decided on Capital Grille for restaurant week in Baltimore. We have been there before for functions and found it amazing. Have to say this experience not as amazing. The steaks that we ordered were not cooked as requested. Some too rare others not rare. The wedge salad was very good but they really skimped on the desserts which I thought was different. The wait staff really not that great as well not very attentive . I think because we were utilizing restaurant week we were not treated like a regular customer.

Food was decent. Service was just OK. Entrees came before we even finished out appetizers and we were told if we weren't done to just put our plates to the side... Check was brought straight with dessert as if to signal to hurry up. The service is not the quality I expected at such a restaurant.

I am so disappointed in my dinner last night. I was just in the hospital and looking forward to a nice night out and celebrate my 50th birthday. I have NEVER been to Capital Grill and my steak come out correct at medium temperature. Every time I send it back and then it is burnt. The people in my party are finished there meal and I eat alone. Our server was slow,, no personality and kept disappearing. We were able to find other people to help. Also, we said we were not in a rush and wanted a “dining” experience. We were done in an hour. Due to my health I do not get out as often as I would like so when I do and have such a disappointing experience it makes me sad. Obviously I will not be returning.

We went for restaurant week, great menu! We were seated in an odd spot by the bar and the hostesses stand so we had a lot of people around us, which kind of killed our date night mood. But the food was wonderful and our waiter was tentative and nice.
