Great time with a few business associates. Manny was our server and was excellent. Great suggestions that we took advantage of when ordering. My steak came out rare when ordered medium. 2nd try wasn't better, but chef came out apologized and removed from the bill. They didn't need to do that, but it was appreciated. Overall, the food was excellent. Wine and drinks equally good. I've dined here multiple times while traveling to Baltimore. Highly recommended and will continue to return.

Went with a group of 7 for hubby’s birthday. Everything except the food was great. No one enjoyed their steaks, which were prepared ranging from Medium to well done. I had swordfish and felt my husband could have prepared it better. I doubt we will go back, which is pretty unfortunate given I’ve heard positive comments about the food quality.

Always a great choice! We enjoyed a wonderful post-theater dinner with friends the other night. All of our steaks were prepared perfectly and the sides were excellent. Service was outstanding. Highly recommended!

I treated myself to a delicious seafood dinner. My waiter, Carlos Ramirez, was extremely helpful with my dinner selection. He highly recommended the South African lobster and it was excellent. He also had the chef add perfect scallops to the meal for me. When he saw that I did not care for the crab chowder (too spicy for me), he immediately offered to replace it with another choice. I chose the lobster bisque that was full of lobster claw meat! Yes, it is pricey, but the attention to detail and quality food is worth it.

We decided to order the special soup of the day despite its being pricey, and what a disappointment it was-----it was watery and looked like someone had poured canned vegetables into water----the soup had no body whatever. It also had hardly any crabmeat, certainly not enough to justify its price, a big surprise, as I have been a regular at the Capital Grille for years and never complain about the food or the prices. We decided to order the salmon and I specifically asked the waiter, Paul, to make sure that it was done medium plus, that is, not red or raw, in the middle or so dry that it had to taste. Paul did not bring the salmon to the table himself, so the young who did served my plate to my friend instead of to me, and Paul was nowhere to be seen. We both recognized the mistake and exchanged plates. Even so, my salmon was not cooked as I requested, and I left a good third to half uneaten but paid for. Not the Capital Grille experience I had expected or wanted.

This was simply one of the best meals I have ever had. The service was impeccable. The steak was incredible. The ambiance was just right. We enjoyed a large table in front of the kitchen for a company celebration. The folks could not have been more friendly, the food could not have been more perfect.

Paul was wonderful. Steaks cooked perfectly. Despite this being steakhouse, correct temperatures are not always a guarantee as we unfortunately have discovered at other steakhouses. The butter poached lobster was a hit. Only bad item.was the truffle fries. They were dry, did not have any truffle flavor and the Parmesan was barely noticeable. Dessert was fabulous. Wonder birthday dinner for our son! Thank you

We made a reservation to enjoy an early meal before attending a musical at the Hippodrome. Our server, Layne, was the highlight of our wonderful experience. She was attentive, personable, and just fantastic. She had recommendations, knowledge about the wine, and a bubbly personality. The food and drinks were amazing as well. Only complaint would be that they don’t advertise their valet very well. It is on the side street instead of in front of the restaurant- so we didn’t know it was available and got street parking 2 blocks away that we had to pay for. Maybe a sign on the sidewalk in front of the restaurant stating where the valet is would resolve that issue. Overall, we had an incredible experience and though we live closer to several Capital Grilles, we would drive the further distance to have Layne be our server again!

Service was excellent from valet to reception to Markus our waiter. One guest had lamb chops he advised were great, one enjoyed the salmon. The NY Strip 14oz definitely did not look 14 oz but was enough however did not have the usual excellent Capital Grille taste but that can happen. We will be back. Great for business dinners.

This was one of the best dining experiences I have had. My meal started with a freshly made handcraft cocktail and calamari. The calamari was tender and combined well with the peppers. My husband enjoyed his steak, done as he requested and I enjoyed the salmon. Both were fantastic. For a side dish we shared the brussels sprouts, delicious. The atmosphere was both elegant and relaxed and the tables spaced well for privacy. Our server, Eric, really made our meal. He was knowledgeable, professional, and efficient. I look forward to our return.

We have been to the Capital Grille many times, and always ask for Manny's table, as we did this time. We were assured we would be seated at Manny's table. However, when we arrived, we were advised Manny was not working last Saturday night. We were not happy at that point, but didn't want to back out of a birthday celebration. We were introduced to Scott who would be our server. That's when things changed for the better. Scott was very personable, friendly and professional. We liked him immediately and admiration grew as the evening progressed. He was able to turn things around and make this one of the best times we've spent at the Grille.
We now have two favorite servers at The Capital Grille and will be happy to be at either table. Thank you for hiring and training people like Scott and Manny.
The food was extraordinary. I had the 22 ounce ribeye, and my wife had a 2-pound lobster. Outstanding is the only way to describe it.

Pre-concert dinner with my sweetie. Lazarus, our server, was one of the best I’ve ever experienced! Polite, professional and informative, he was always there when needed, not too often or too rare. Wedge and Kale salads were top notch, with fresh and crisp greens and yummy dressings. Filet mignons, mine bone-in, my wife’s boneless, were perfectly cooked beef. Mashed potatoes and asparagus sides were huge and delicious. Strawberries and cream and cheesecake cake were just the right decadent desserts to end a perfect meal. Can’t wait for our next visit!

Ambience was beautiful and my gf's steak was great. My chicken wasn't very good at all, the sauce was very salty and I felt like I could've went to Nandos Peri Peri for better chicken at half the price. It actually made my stomach queasy for the next two days and it didn't seem to be thoroughly cooked. I wouldn't recommend going if you don't want beef or seafood.

Server was fabulous, ordered the onion soup, which was delicious
Then the Lamb Chops medium rare plus...one was well done, one was fatty . The other two were fine.
Creamed Spinach was lovely. They brought me a desert which they always do, if it is a special occasion.

My family chose The Capitol Grille to celebrate 3 March birthdays. Our server, Lane, was very knowledgeable, personable and professional. She was a huge part of why we had such an enjoyable evening. We ordered a variety of dishes and everything was delicious and presented beautifully. We loved the surprise birthday desserts. I highly recommend the Capitol Grille for your next special occasion.

Our server was new to the Capital Grille, but I hope she stays with you a long time. Layne Dobry was attentive, responsive and was there all the time to refill our coffee cups, etc. I wish I had known that you cut up the filet when you put it on a salad, as I would have prefered to have the 6 oz. filet in one piece instead of three or four.

We've been to other steak restaurants, but not to Capital Grille. We went with family and were impressed by the atmosphere and decor. The drinks were wonderful and the waiter was great -- he offered his opinion on what he thought each of us would like. Unfortunately, the Steak Oscar came out overcooked. It was handled professionally and quickly by the waiter and management, however. Everyone else had no issues with their meals and we thoroughly enjoyed the rest of the meal and dessert. We will go back again and recommend to friends too.

for dinner reservation of 6pm we were not done until 1.5 hours later. Seemed a bit long to me and unwarranted.
Meal would have been better if had flowed a bit better without pregnant pauses between courses.
