The service was poor. The waiter was distracted & couldn’t even focus on taking our order. Disappointed with this Cap Grille location. I’ll entertain my customers elsewhere in Baltimore. There are too many amazing restaurants in Baltimore to be embarrassed by poor service. Cap Grille in Dallas & Vegas are much better!

Great Mother’s Day brunch at The Capital Grille! Although the restaurant was very busy with holiday celebrants, we were seated immediately and were made to feel that we were the only guests in the restaurant. Sydney was our server and she was friendly, helpful, and efficient. We both chose the lobster frittata for our entree and it was fantastic! Another great meal at The Capital Grille — highly recommended!

35th anniversary went south again at Capital Grill. Service was great with Josh. Everything was delicious until the wife’s whole lobster. It came out and was tough like roadkill. I gave her half of my filet and lobster and called it a night. Second time for CG on a special occasion. OUCH..........

Great meal everything was perfect just the location of our table was in a back room corner. Not ideal for 30th bday. The lighting was extremely dark ruining the complimentary picture. At $130/person the ambience should’ve reflected that.

Wonderful evening. Respectful service, three of four dishes were flawless, one diner’s shrimp was over cooked, but not too badly. Great wine list. A great steakhouse meal

We went there to celebrate a birthday. There was a birthday card with a handwritten message inside at the table before we sat down. We we served champagne toasting glasses and a birthday dessert to end our evening. Service was excellent! We weren't rushed by any means and our glasses never went empty.

Went for a birthday dinner date. Was treated well. Well attentive until the food arrived. Took awhile to get anyone’s attention for the check. Besides that, it was a great dinner. Excellent food and one of the better steak houses in the area.

We had an early Easter dinner there and enjoyed everything. I had strip steak Oscar which was excellent. W finished with an apple dessert which was also good - I like the apples to be cooked soft, which they were. Our waitress, Elissa, was very efficient and attentive.

Greet place to celebrate a special occasion. The double chocolate cake is really the most outrageous chocolate lava cake I have ever had. Worth a trip back just for that ! I also learned you can order a half portion of the calamari and sides. Great if you want to try several things from the menu.

The chef Martin did an excellent job and customized our tuna steaks to avoid the heavy sesame seeds on the menu and instead to substitute a delicious and less caloric sauce. We had great service and the food was wonderful, even if not cheap. Very nice time.

We had to wait when we arrived at 5:15 for a 5:30 reservation. Our waiter Oscar was A+. The food was great and they give us a photo and dessert for my birthday. The chef brought the dessert out. We were not rushed and had a very pleasant evening.

I was disappointed that the server did not listen to what I requested when I ordered the tuna steak----I asked that it be done medium, that is moist but not raw and not with a red middle. Apparently the server did not check the plates before a busperson presented the dishes, and my tuna was raw and deep red, so I sent it back. It came back a second time similarly raw, so I sent it back a third time----a simple act of listening and checking the item would have made a big difference, Likewise, we hardly saw our server during much of the meal hour, as she was busy with other customers. It was not the quality of service and attentiveness one expects from the Capital Grille.
