The actual bar server didn’t want to serve us!! It was clear as day, she walked pass 4 times never said hello!! My date & I was the 3rd table to be seated, so it wasn’t too busy!! The hostess noticed & got us a server from the dining room once he get our drink or and walks away she FINALLY says “Hey is someone helping you” I just giggled!! I watched her make $10 tip between the 2 white couples, meanwhile we tipped our server $100!!! And trust me when I say, I made sure she seen the amazing tip simply bc she went out her way to make sure she didn’t serve us & only got $10! Beside that everything was amazing!

We had a really great experience. We were seated at the bar as requested, after reminding the host, and it was a wonderful spot. Mark, our server behind the bar did a great job. Offered suggestions, had good insight about the menu and drinks and was generally very friendly and attentive, despite being fairly busy. The food was excellent and timed just rigth between our salad and the steak. We would definitely return again for a similar experience.

+ Still a good place for special occasions
+ Service was very good, a welcome change to most places as they seemed to have plenty of staff that were attentive but not intrusive
+ Quality of food and drinks were very good. Creamed spinach and mashed potatoes are some of the best we've had. Steaks were cooked to order.
- Prices are much higher than the last time we dined here ($16 for a cocktail plus an alcohol tax)
- They charge for valet parking, $7, but this is probably cheaper than parking in a garage and safer as the car is brought to you (see next note)
- - (yes, a double negative) LOCATION.
Downtown Baltimore, even in the Inner Harbor area, has degraded. Gangs of kids on bikes, scooters, and dirt bikes weaving in and out of stopped as well as moving traffic, not to mention hordes of pedestrians busy looking at their phones and not traffic lights. Police cars present but did not actually see any cops.

Actually. the only reason it was not an overall 5 was a jarring note at the beginning. i would suggest that the Capital Grille rethink its policy of not seating until the party was all there.

My husband and I frequent The Capital Grille all over Maryland/DC. This was our first visit to the Baltimore location, and we were not disappointed. We had a reservation and were sat quickly in a comfortable corner location near a window.

The serving staff was friendly and attentive. The food was up to the usual that I expect from The Capital Grille - excellent, and it’s important to note that this was with a completely full restaurant. There were no empty tables, and for good reason.

The wait staff go so above and beyond. EXCELLENT service all around. Food was absolutely delicious easily one of the best steaks I’ve had in my entire life. Lobster bisque was to die for and the soy Brussels sprouts were delicious as well. Great ambiance and really has that “high class” feel. Would most certainly recommend and will definitely be returning.

My husband and I recently went there as our first date after being married, although this wasn’t our first time there. The food and service was excellent. Frog has been our server each time we’ve dined at Capital Grille and as always, he was simply amazing. He always goes over and beyond to make sure we are pleased!

Kind of disappointing overall. Expensive relative to the quality of the food. Side dishes and appetizers were not at all what one might expect from a premium steak house. That said, the steak quality was as expected.

Usually, I really enjoy my experience, but today, I was disappointed. The food was delicious, our server was outstanding, but I was disappointed in the ambiance. It was our 24th anniversary, which they were informed of. We were seated near the kitchen, and then they seated a couple, with to crying babies across from us. Needless to say, it kinda killed the romantic environment.

Our friend’s 50th wedding anniversary. Came from out of state to celebrate. Wonderful dinner made better by the fabulous waiter, Donnie. So warm, friendly, accommodating and professional. The appetizers were delicious- tuna tartare, Caesar salad, lump crabmeat cocktail and the superb onion soup. All our steaks were cooked perfectly. One diner had the 3 lb lobster stuffed with crabmeat special. Over the top delicious. Dessert included a mini chocolate mousse tart and a mini cheesecake. Fruit on the side- all were gobbled up quickly. Would go back every time we come to Baltimore. Everything was top notch.

Excellent dinner! Would highly recommend. Our waiter was spectacular - extremely professional and knew the menu! The food was incredible - we had a number of appetizers, main dishes and desserts. Although a little pricey, certainly worth the money.

The food and service was outstanding. Our steaks were done perfectly, and probably the best cuts of beef we ever had ... melt in your mouth tenderness. And to top things off, they actually had my favorite dessert, Creme Brulee, which was also one of the best I ever had. Everyone was extremely friendly, and made it an enjoyable evening.

The "Charm'tastic Mile" had a very informative lunch with Visit Baltimore CEO Al Hutchinson. The Capital Grille has a marvelous location on The Mile. My Ribeye-Steak Sandwich was cooked to perfection (med. rare) with garlic truffle fries. Sandy was a great server, she's been there for a long time. If you want a perfect lunch salad try the Caesar with Grilled Shrimp. I highly recommend the Capital Grille. It's "Steak'tastic" in B-more!

Visited for a Father's day for my husband and father. We were a little disappointed with the food. We noticed there were changes to the menu since our last outing prior to the pandemic. My french onion soup was good however, the chicken was so under seasoned it tasted like chicken. The waitress forgot about my soup so my food came out as I was eating finishing my soup. My mother ordered a steak which she said was good but our chicken dishes were not the best. Saddened by this because Capital Grille was one of my favorite restaurants.
