The food and service were both good as usual. However, this is the second time that I purchased food to go and when I got home there was food missing from the order. Also, they validated my parking pass from the parking deck but I still had to pay when I left so I am not sure what happened there. As a higher end restaurant, they seem to be having difficulty with details.

I looked at all of the offerings for Restaurant Week 2020. It was a hard choice on where to go for our 34th wedding anniversary. We've tried other places over the past years of RW and, usually, once is enough. My husband's birthday was in December as was Christmas and I was unable to get him a gift for either one. Money is tough when you are on a fixed income. We had hoped to go somewhere for a long weekend to celebrate but weather was cold and rainy everywhere. That's why I decided to spend more freely on a nice meal. I told my husband to pick whatever he wanted and he chose the big ribeye off the menu instead of the RW special menu. Fortunately, he didn't notice the price because he wouldn't have chosen it. Sadly, he insists his meat be well-done, burnt almost. Such a waste of good meat because it makes it so tough. Oh, WOW! Not only was his meat cooked correctly the first time, but it was tender and very tasty! As an older person, he usually is not able to eat the whole meal. It was so good that he could not stop until he finished it all. He suffered for it but he was happy to do it. I had salmon and I raved about it so much that he tasted a little bit and loved it. He hates salmon but said that he would be willing to order that for himself sometime. Todd White was our amazing server! As having worked in restaurants before, I observed the goings on. I'm totally impressed by the attitudes, helpfulness, teamwork and professionalism of all of the employees. We will be back but, because of our finances, it probably won't be until next RW. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Donald and Linda Cunningham(very satisfied customers)

Capital Grill is our fav special occasion restaurant. We go for regular dining as well, but we know we won’t be dish. We were celebrating a promotion and upcoming relocation to Hawaii. Denise was our server and she was outstanding. Personable, efficient and very knowledgeable about the menu. In fact, Denise was the best server we’ve had in the 2 years that we’ve been going to Capital. Hubby always gets the Kona dry rubbed bone in steak. So delicious! I had the sliced rib eye. No one does it better.

We were glad to be part of Peter's last day as a server at Capital Grille. I could tell he had many fans to see him off. However, the steak was a bit grisly for both myself and my guest and we had ordered different entrees. Also it was obvious that more help was needed since Peter is only one person. However, the service was gracious as always. We like making Capital Grille our go to celebration destination.

We waited 50 min after our reservation. Food was horrible and our steak was over cooked. I will never go back or ever recommend anyone to go.

The Capital Grille never disappoints! We were celebrating a Birthday and they made it a very special evening. They have taken notes from previous visits so they know our preferences for seating as well as servers. Truly an exceptional experience with great food and drink!

Always a great experience. Food is wonderful, as was the service. They make a great martini as well! Can't go wrong for a special occasion dinner. My husband is the steak guy, I'm a huge fan of their sea bass. I've never had it less than perfect!

Great New Year Eve dinner. Thanks to Joe S for doing a wonderful job on being there when we needed him but not smothering us. Joe S did a great job of making sure our meals were prepared correctly and served at the proper time.
Look forward to returning soon.
