As usual The Capital Grill does not disappoint. Simply first class service by Alex. All food ordered came out exactly as expected. The bone-in ribeye is a good as you can find anywhere. Ambience, food, interior, and drinks are up to what The CG is all about . Very clubby atmosphere.

Only issue is allowing persons to dine wearing t shirts. That should never be allowed or rename it to The Common Grill. Not interested in seeing an loser’s underwear as he sits down.

Will return tho.

It was a special birthday for me and Capital Grill did not disappoint with the accommodations, service and everything you'd want to make a birthday special. Staton, our server, was excellent as well.

every time we've been, the food has been superb and so has the service. They pretend to have a strict dress code but they absolutely DO NOT enforce it.
My wife LOVES to go to fancy dinners with a dress code that's one of the factors that drew us to CG the first time but each time we've been we've seen just as many people dressed in sweatpants and hoodies as we have anyone in a suit.

But if that's not important to you then the rest is amazing. It doesn't bother me but it does bother my wife just enough that it's not my first choice for date night. We have 3 kids and get so few of these nights that I want everything to be perfect.

The Capitol Grille is having its Generous Pour event. You get to taste 7 different wines and then decide which one you would like to have with your dinner! What’s not to like about that. Give it a try. A great time and a great value.

This was our first visit to Capital Grill. The staff was very pleasant and our server Marko was awesome! He was extremely professional and knowledgeable. My wife and I shared the Prosciutto wrapped Mozzarella followed by the Lobster bisque. Both were delightful. My entree was the NY strip au pouve and my wife’s was the double cut lamb chops. Both were very flavorful and tender as a Mother’s love! The lamb chops were just stunning! I found myself gnawing on the bones. The seasoning was so amazing! For desert I had the Cheesecake and my wife had the Coconut cream pie! Both insanely good! Thank you for all that you do! It was a very special date night!

Cheers,

As always, I really appreciate the commitment to excellence at this particular Capitol Grill. Although I didn't see them this outing the senior management is fantastic, the ladies at the front desk that manage reservations and table assignments, and the waitstaff are all top shelf.

I was told if we parked in a certain parking garage that they would pay for the parking. I got my ticket validated and went to leave the parking deck and had to pay an extra $11 to get out. Seems like they do not do what they say.

We have family in town and due to having 3 kids, a business and all things covid we haven't been out to a nice dinner in a long time.
We picked Capital Grille for their reviews and their claims of a strict dress code. My in-laws were in town from Estonia and they only get to experience this type of dining when they visit us.
The restaurant even called to make sure we knew of their strict dress code and I told them that's actually one of the reasons we chose them. We wanted it to feel and be a special night all the way around. For us, for our relatives, and just to enjoy life outside again as humans and adults.

They have signs on the door that are HUGE addressing the "strict" dress code.
We walk in and the hostess was wearing what looked like a pajama top and yoga pants. (The sign on the door specifically said NO athletic gear).

There was a couple being sat as we walked in wearing t-shirts and ripped jeans that looked like they'd been through a tree shredder.

The place was packed and I'm willing to bet that a third of the people there were dressed like teenagers.
I dress comfortably all day everyday but when we get the chance to go out, especially when our portion of the tab (for 3 people) is $500+, I like to have the full experience especially when they make such a big deal about it.

Other than that, most of the food was AMAZING!!! Only the potatoes au gratin left a little to be desired but everything else was mind blowing.

Our server was David Crosby and he was perfect! I've trained many companies in customer service and rapport and I was thoroughly impressed with his attitude, service, personality, and communication.

We will definitely be returning but might wear my bedroom shoes to fit in a little better next time.

Our bartender/server David was awesome! His food recommendations were spot on. The Prosciutto-Wrapped Mozzarella was truly delicious. We wouldn’t have ordered it without his great recommendation. Thank you David! The calamari was also good but dry. It just needs a side of dip or sauce IMO. The drinks were perfectly made! My only big issue with this restaurant is not being able to have contactless dining ordering; which should be a standard for all places post-Covid. Capital Grille, offers this; BUT your Wi-Fi did not work well enough in order to utilize it. After trying to get your menus to load on two different phones and an iPad; we ended up having to use regular menus to order because the Wi-Fi signal was just too weak. Please resolve this for everyone’s safety. *And we did NOT get dining points due to the WiFi issues. So if you book through OpenTable for points, I recommend you check for them. OT honored the points, but it was a hassle to wait online over an hour for a customer service chat when it should happen automatically. We look forward to returning once you can resolve this.
