Went for a birthday dinner and it did not disappoint. One of the specials was a filet on bone and it was amazing. Two of us had fish and both were also just delicious. I had the seared tuna with ginger rice and was so happy. Service by Molly was top notch. I would highly recommend coming here for a nice dinner and make reservations in advance!

My family and I had a fabulous dinner ... we each had steaks which were cooked perfectly, the sides were delicious and the desserts and cocktails even better!! Our waiter Kris was outstanding and would definitely request him the next time we go.

I like the Capital Grille and go there often, but I frequently find issues with the servers. This past time, I ate about a quarter of my steak au poivre and asked to take the rest home. There was a lot of sauce on the plate, indeed the "au poivre" sauce was the differentiating element of the dish! But when I got home and opened the container, the waiter didn't put any of the sauce in the container. I was a waiter. This is common sense. I left him 20% but I wish I could take it back, frankly. As I said, I go to the Grille a fair amount, especially for business dinners. The last time I was there, the waitress kept asking my two kids if they wanted a refill on their sodas? I thought to ask, are refills free? But I figured well she keeps asking, I can't imagine she's trying to jack up the bill by pushing soda to my kids ... and yet that's exactly what she did. I think I paid close to $30 for soda! So it seems like there's frequent problems with the servers and the kinds of problems that are just so silly... There are a lot of steak house options and, while I've always preferred the Grille, my recent experience is causing me to just go try someplace else. I wish it were different ... I feel bad for the management. These aren't "training" issues...this is just a matter of common sense or basic good judgement.

We have been to the Captial Grille many times in multiple locations. In fairness, was the first time that I did not have a 5-star experience. We had a party of 9, so I know that can be more challenging. But, to begin with, it talk almost 2 hrs from when we ordered until when our main course was delivered. No one ordered appetizers, but a few did order salad. When the dinner was delivered, two of the nine dinners were inedible. My son's steak was so rare it was cold in the middle. Mine was so well done, a filet mignon that can typically be cut with a fork, was tough as can be. We sent our steaks back. The waitress was very apologetic. She brought new sides when the steaks were brought out again. This time my son's steak was medium rare (versus medium) but it was edible. Mine was also medium rare, and although I had ordered with out seasoning or steak butter, it had both. I ate a few bites and took it home for my husband to eat the next day. The manager was very apologetic as was the waitress. They brought us beautiful platters of desserts that were complimentary. This was certainly appreciated. Yet, I am giving an honest review of my experience as I have not hesitated to rave over this restaurant in the past.

My girlfriend and I were celebrating Valentine's Day along with our 1st year anniversary and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. For appetizers we began with a Clam Chowder Soup and the Lobster Crab Cakes which were to die for - great way to start our night. I ordered a medium 10 oz. Filet Mignon which was charred on top with an excellent finish with Lobster Mac & Cheese which we both ended up sharing. The Filet was so tender and flavorful that it left me wanting for more. I definitely plan on going back to try a different cut of steak to experience another exciting meal here. The steak at Capital is one of the best I've ever enjoyed while dining out in the city.

This was our third visit to The Capitol Grille, and it was our best experience to date. What raised the bar on this occasion was our server, Ali who is a consummate professional. Ali exudes a mastery of his craft, and a sense of joy and pride in his work. The food an ambiance of this restaurant is always terrific, and Ali just raised the bar to a level that made for a memorable evening.

Our server Brian was fantastic and very descriptive about all dishes. Overall the environment was nicely set up for Valentine’s Day. My fiancée got the in-bone koba crusted NY Strip steak and it was great, on the other hand I got the in Bone filet mignon steak and unfortunately it was very under-done; I ordered it medium rare and it came out barely blue rare (rather raw inside). I tried giving it a shot by having it put back on the grill to my doneness but I felt kind of disgusted trying to eat it; I ended up unable to finish both steak and my side of lobster mac & cheese. I didn’t want to be one of those customers and just ask for it to be covered by the house. Overall Brian saved the day with his professionalism and courteousness.

Very slow service from a very pompous waiter -- and steaks that just were not worth waiting for. Nothing else was particularly tasty or well prepared, either. This place was once great. So very, very disappointed.
