    Donnie was a fantastic server and the food was absolutely top notch with the filets done perfectly. Was easy to catch up with my buddy as noise levels were fine. Highly recommend the Capital Grille if you are in the harbor area.

    Service was great for our wedding anniversary dinner, however steak had to be resent back twice. First too much of the balsamic porcini sauce and then second steak was way undercooked. Manager did take care of the steak and also took care of dessert.

    Birthday lunch. I took a good friend out to lunch for her birthday so we could be pampered because Capital Grille does that so well. They walked us to our table spread a little celebratory confetti on the table and handed her a hand written card wishing her a happy birthday. We had expertly prepared food that they capped off with a surprise dessert duo (including candles) of a flourless espresso cake and a small bruleed cheescake with berries. Just the sort of elegant, thoughtful spoiling we wanted. Thank you to our waiter Brian, our bus boy, the manager Jimmy and the hostess team.

    Due to a change of plans, The Capital Grille became our go-to option. Needless to say they did not disappoint. From the start, the hostess recognized our anniversary and had a nice note and glitter to commemorate the occasion. Even on our initial greet from our server Donnie, he made us feel welcomed and honored. The food was fantastic, especially the Filet Oscar-style. We were surprised by a nice anniversary treat at the conclusion of dinner, which was unexpected and really was the exclamation point on how they treated us this evening. Our server Donnie was amazing. He treated us as if we were old friends and did everything he could in his power to make our evening special, which he did successfully. Needless to say, this experience, albeit a plan B May give us more reason to consider this our plan A option going forward! We were floored at the experience and it goes to show you how old school, supper club fine dining still reigns supreme. Great job, keep up the hard work!

    So it's been awhile since we have had an opportunity to have a high end dinner experience and the Capitol Grill in Baltimore did not disappoint! From the moment we entered the establishment with an engaging hosting staff, to our waiter Paul, to the manager Jimmy who stopped by and ask how we were enjoying our dinner just amazing! We had the Aged NY Strip, a very nice Ceasar Salad, and the Sushi-Grade Seared Tuna. Do not miss the Soy glazed brussel sprouts...life changing! Thank you to the staff, the cooks, and out wait staff....well done!

    Our server was Carlos. He was so attentive but not overboard. The filet I ordered was perfect and my husband’s strip steak was done to his liking. We are Not drinker so I can’t speak to the quality of the wine or other alcohol. The whole experience was very enjoyable and I would highly recommend asking for a Carlos as your server

    Our server Joshua C. was very professional, personal, attentive and gave great details on each item on the menu! He served me and my family, kept everything short and sweet and always made sure our table was taken care of. We noticed that he treated all his other customers at the other tables the same, genuine service. Food is worth the price, excellent service, just high quality. Most definitely will be coming back here! Thank you!

    The food was AMAZING! I wish I had tried wine, but my cocktail was lovely. We went to celebrate my husbands birthday and they had several small touches since we were celebrating and the effect was gorgeous. I wish they would have upheld their dress code rules more, as I saw a few men in shorts/baseball caps as I was there, but overall most people were engaged in the experience. and the food! The calamari was heavenly, my husbands steak was huge and rich and gorgeous, my sea bass was fantastic and I will dream of the next time I can get it. Lastly, don't sleep on the lobster mac, that was incredible!

    It just does not get any better than The Capital Grille. They really know how to deliver the best service and the most delicious food. We were celebrating my husband’s birthday. They really went all out. He was given a birthday card with sparkles inside. We were excited about enjoying The Generous Pour. Every year, The Capital Grille offers The Generous Pour as their Summer Wine Event. For the reasonable price of $32.00 each, we were able to enjoy 6 different wines. We were especially looking forward to the wines from the Antinori vineyards from Italy. We started with a Santa Cristina Delle Venezie Pinot Grigio; Tormaresca Chardonnay from Puglia; Tormaresca “Calafuria” from Puglia; Villa Antinori “Toscana Rosso” from Tuscany; Col Solare, Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State, and the Antica “Mountain Select” Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Each and every wine stood out for their delectable properties. Our server, Mark, is always on top of his game. We were very pleased with his service – his attention to detail made our dinner experience wonderful. He suggested that we start with the lobster and crab cake, which is actually a crab cake made with lobster included, served with a crisp corn relish and sauce. My husband ordered the 14oz. dry-aged NY strip au poivre with Courvoisier cream. I really enjoyed their 22 oz. bone-in ribeye. We both like our steaks cooked to “medium rare plus,” and they were. To accompany our steaks, we had the creamed spinach and creamed corn with bacon. I was able to order a half portion of the Parmesan truffle fries. Wow, they all were scrumptious. They surprised my husband with a beautiful dessert plate that had flourless chocolate espresso cake, The Capital Grille cheesecake, and seasonal berries with vanilla bean crème anglaise. Valet parking is no longer free, it now cost $11.00, but it is so worth it. They put the charge on your bill. It is just nice to pull up and turn your car over to the Val

    We had a fantastic dining experience to celebrate my husband's birthday. We started with the oysters which were extremely fresh and flavorful, and then had two perfectly cooked steaks. The Kona crusted steak with shallot butter sauce is exceptional and the filet with lobster is beautifully rich and tender. Our server surprised us with dessert and sparkling wine to end a perfect celebratory meal. Although not surprised because of other past experiences, we were certainty wowed.
