My husband and I went to Capital Grille for our anniversary and had a great time! The staff went above and beyond to recognize the occasion for us -- they even took a photo and framed it for us. Delicious food, some of the best steak I've ever had.

Our waiter Carlos misinformed us of the menu, and we did not get more bread when we requested. When the entrees came, he didn’t offers us fresh ground peppers and he was no where to be found. We have been to the Capital Grille in Baltimore numerous time, it was one of our favorites. We even brought our staff here for our annual Christmas party 2017. This was our first time we were not satisfied w the service.

Terrific waiter. Great table. Delicious food. Only issue: ordered filet medium, it came out closer to rare. I mentioned it, the waiter agreed without a question & took it back to the kitchen. They came back minutes later with the EXACT piece of meat again (with the pieces cut off I had already cut) and said check again. It had obviously just been heated up again slightly as was marginally closer to medium. Regardless, seems like a potential health code issue placing already cut meat back on the grill.

I took my daughter out to dinner at the Capital Grille in Baltimore for restaurant week. I had never been there. Everything from the hostess at the front door, to the server Katie, to the manager stopping by our table to see how everything was, was outstanding. The only thing we didn't love were the grilled shrimp that were on offer on top of the Filet Mignon for an extra $10.00. They were described as jumbo, they were not, and they were undercooked, rubbery and tasteless. When we told our waitress, she didn't even blink, she just said they would be taken off of the bill. We got an order of truffle fries, something I have never tasted, they were unbelievable. I would go back just for those! I also had the wedge salad with blue cheese dressing, some bacon chunks (small) with some heirloom tomatoes. I don't like blue cheese, but this was sooooo good, I could have licked the plate. My daughter got the Cesar salad and she felt the same way I did. She also got the Filet Mignon, perfectly cooked medium rare, cut like butter, and I got the New York strip, also cooked perfectly. Overall it was a wonderful meal and I will definitely return!! I have already told many friends and family about our experience.

We have been to Capital Grille in Baltimore several times. Although the food and service were great, we were disappointed where we were seated. We were seated in a booth across from the kitchen. Our romantic evening was constantly interrupted by the noise of clanging of pots, sizzling noises, voices, etc. Here we are all dressed up and put near the kitchen!

Elegant rooms, fantastic service, and wonderful food make the Capital Grille a place to return to over and over. The steak is so tender and flavorful. Definitely a place to come for a special occasion as it is expensive but well worth it.

It was a very good restaurant week menu. The ceaser salad was small and looked like it was pre-made. The wedge was delicious and a great size. The steaks we're perfectly cooked and the sides and dessert delicious. Service was good but nothing to rave about. A little bit of a wait for the table even with a reservation. Wait was about 20minutes to be seated. Decor is more business than date oriented. Wine list is good with lots to choose from. It is a good steakhouse, but there are Great steakhouses in Baltimore.

Go there for almost every restaurant week and usually one or two other times per year. Food is always top notch as is the service (usually request and get Marc as our server but not this time). The service was great this time too even though we did not get Marc. My wife and I didn't drink but out friends were a little taken back at the drink bill but it is the Capital Grille and not TGIF.

The food ok. However my steak was over cooked and a tad bit under seasoned. Our sides came out late, however the chef did comp us an additional side. The waiter was slow in taking our order and bring our drinks but he was pleasant. I have been to the Capitol grill before and had a better experience with the food and service, so I was a little disappointed. However, over it was a decent night out.

To kick off Restaurant Week in Baltimore City, we met our friend at The Capital Grille. The restaurant was packed with a lively vibe. We were seated in the back room, which was really nice and quiet. Our server, Mark W, took excellent care of us. His memory and attention to detail is unsurpassed. We started with two Caesar Salads with Gran Padano Croutons and a Wedge with Blue Cheese and Nueske’s Bacon. The salads were crisp, fresh and good. Two of us enjoyed the Porcini Rubbed Sliced Tenderloin and one had the Kona-crusted New York strip. The tenderloins and the NY strip were perfectly seasoned and cooked to our specifications. To finish, we enjoyed the Flourless Chocolate Espresso Cake and the Classic Crème Brulee. What we love about The Capital Grille is their consistency – we are never disappointed. Thank you for participating in Baltimore’s Restaurant Week.

Brian is literally the best bartender ever. He's energetic, friendly, and is always a good time. He makes the best drinks. The brussels sprouts are my favorite but were not great this time. The apple crostini was amazing and a must try for all desert lovers.
