Love Capital Grille, but both our bone in ribeyes were so tough. It appeared to be cooked how we asked for it, but the actual meat was so tough we stopped eating halfway through from fatigue. What a waste of money.

My husband and I decided to do a late Valentine's Day celebration with our friends. It was the first time for the 4 of us dining here but it definitely won't be the last. The service was great everyone was very friendly from the second we stepped in the door. Our waiter recommended the perfect wine and drinks and the food was excellent with nice size portions.

Need to have better quality steaks and the cheeses used in dishes is not for everyone. It makes the dish taste off.

1st time eating at this restaurant. Food was out of this world!! Steak melts in your mouth. Staff was professional & courteous. Just a small set-back....ordered salads and they never arrived. Waiter apologized and made up for it with dessert on the house.

We always love visiting the Capital Grille. Our waitress Elissa was exceptional. I’m a vegetarian and she recommended a vegetarian pasta that is not on the menu. And she sung Happy Birthday to me!!!

My wife and I attended the Captial grille on Friday February 15th. We had reservations at 5:45pm. The hostess was very friendly and we were seated immediately. Our table was in near the back of the restaurant. The room was very warm and inviting. Our waitress was extremely nice and helpful. She was knowledgeable on the items on the menu. We ordered the filet mignon cooked medium and the roasted lamb chops with a side of mashed potatoes. Food arrived promptly and hot. The problem was the steak and lambs lacked flavor. The food was not enjoyable. We were pressed for time because we had a concert later that evening. Normally we would have sent the food back but we were hungry. If I ever go back to that location I’ll definitely try something other then red meat there.

Been going for years. Our “go to” for celebration. For the first time I found the onion soup salty. Dorathy’s salmon too salty also. Never understand using salt. If you want more salt it is on the table. We live the cg and will continue to visit b

Great lunch options at The Capital Grille! We really enjoyed our lunch at The Capital Grille the other day. The menu provided a wonderful range of options from salads to sandwiches to special two-course plates to full entrees. We enjoyed a lobster roll and a salad and salmon plate. Paul was our server and proved to be friendly, helpful, and very attentive. Whether it’s lunch, happy hour, or dinner you can’t beat The Capital Grille!

It was just okay! The food was good but not outstanding for the price point. I was disappointed in the drinks from the bar this visit. The drinks tasted bitter and not sweet. I ordered a Dole pineapple martini which is normally really sweet . I did bring it to the attention of management, however they seem unresponsive to the problem. Also, This is the first restaurant I have been to where the tap water is not filtered, so you can taste the chlorine. I would suggest getting bottled water or something else to drink instead.
I wouldn’t say I would never go back, but this would not be my first choice.

We visited The Capital Grille to celebrate hubby's birthday and our 28th wedding anniversary. Service was outstanding and Manny, our server, was very helpful in providing entree details, recommendations, and wine selections. The manager, Ben, continuously walked the dining area to make sure all patrons were OK and inquiring if there was anything anyone needed; all done with a smile and a warm handshake. Ultimately, this restaurant is the epitome of " you get what you pay for". The food quality is great, the amount is plentiful, and you will leave this establishment satisfied! My opinions for areas of improvement were: 1. We could not find any signs indicating where their valet service is located outside the restaurant (unlike their restaurant neighbors who had signs and people directly drivers to their valet), so we ended having to park in a public garage and walking over...not ideal in 20 degree weather. 2. We were not given a ticket for our coat check and there was another person managing the front when we were leaving and had no idea where our coats were...my husband had to go behind the desk ad basically find his hat and coat. We will definitely be back....we will just wait for warmer temps.

Our Experience in capital Grille is always great. Starting from the welcoming staff when you come in and including the valet. we always get waited on by Eric who is excellent and our absolute favorite. One of the managers always comes by our table to find out if we’re doing OK and is always very attentive to our needs. We love capital Grille-Baltimore and recommend it to all our friends and family
