Overall it was very good. It is just not the Capital Grille that we remember. The ambiance is not the same, some of the extra touches are not there (we both had on dark clothes and we would normally have been given a dark napkin). My wife's lamb was nicely cooked and well seasoned, however the cut of meat was extremely tough. We told the waiter, but no manager came over. I will have to give credit as we were celebrating several events (my birthday, our anniversary) and we did receive a glass of champagne and a comp special desert, and some sprinkles on the table, all nice touches. It is nothing i can put my finger on and maybe it is just us being picky...

We always enjoy the Capital Grille. This visit was to celebrate my husband's birthday. Great table location and service. Excellent filet and ribeye. The lobster mac was outstanding! Each staff member we came in contact with wished my husband a happy birthday. We also received a free dessert. This is one of our go to restaurants for special occasions.

Me and my wife had a great time! Although we were outside and it was pretty windy, we still had a wonderful evening! The food was phenomenal!!!!! Our waitress, Amy Washam, was amazing! She was very knowledgeable of the menu and even gave us some of her favs from off the menu as well! Gabriella was awesome as well!! We will most definitely return sometime in the future!

Our server was very good, but the other wait staff was disorganized and inattentive. Our steaks were not cooked properly, and when we asked the food runner to ask the kitchen she asked us to cut further into our steaks to “prove” they were overdone. I like rare. Mine was warm inside, which is not rare. The steaks were replaced with fresh ones that were closer to properly cooked. We also experienced a wait to be seated even with a reservation. We requested patio seating. I have never been to CG when they have not accommodated every request including requesting to reserve a specific table. We were a party of 4, and a party of 2 was seated before us at a 4 top table. I do not know if they had a reservation, but this seemed nonsensical to me. Unfortunately, both times I have visited this location since Covid shutdowns began, my experience has not been fantastic. In the past, I have had loads of lovely meals at CG and keep it in my regular rotation. I hope that the staff gets back into the swing of cooking and service so that my next experience is on par with what is expected from CG.

We had a wonderful meal. We were there for the “Generous Pour” and had an amazing experience. Cory was great in that he was very flexible when it came to our choices with substitutions.

Overall, a man amazing night.

Great food. The steaks were #Amazing!!! Seated near the butlers pantry so there was a bit of activity near our table. Server didn’t offer wine and actually started to remove the glasses. We planned to and did order a bottle. He also had a question in his tone when we inquired about ordering both oysters and calamari. So we just ordered the oysters which were delish, but we would have ordered two servings because we were a party of three. In spite of the slight misses or assumptions, I had a great bday dinner because I had awesome dinner companions!

Server and food were amazing as usual. We dined outdoors and the screening from the sidewalk was insufficient. Several people approached us for donations. We’re called to help others, but I would prefer to enjoy our anniversary dinner with only my wife. Please add more exterior foliage and barriers.

From the moment your greeted until depart, your dining evening is a personable and catered experience. Shawn was a top notch waiter! The wait staff is comprised of an older but experienced team. Constantly watching out for one another as the evening picked up.

Meal portion match the price, which are a plus when celebrating a special event.

A+++ all the way!
