We had a great experience for drinks and apps, but unfortunately our main course was disappointing as the steaks were overcooked and charred. The restaurant offered to send them back, but we didn't want to wait any longer.

Decided to make a reservation on Thanksgiving Day for 5 and got lucky with a 5:30pm reservation. Unfortunately the server failed to inform us that they were serving Turkey until after we had all ordered steaks. Two of the five people in our party were able to switch their meals but I stuck to the bone in rib-eye. Once I tried the Turkey, I was disappointed that I had chosen to do the ribeye instead. It was not very flavorful and not a very good cut. However, the Turkey was phenomenal. Moist & served up with delicious sides. My son’s filet mignon was cooked just right. In addition, we had lobster Mac n cheese, au gratin potatoes, creamed spinach and mashed sweet potatoes which were all excellent. Overall a good meal with the exception of my $60 ribeye (I should’ve sent it back).

Really disappointed in our experience here this evening. We usually visit this location about once a year for a special occasion, birthday, anniversary, etc. Tonight was our anniversary and it was very unpleasant due to the lack of management skills on hand. Food was very good but more important than the food is service and ambiance (in my opinion).

First of all, the tables were not 6’ apart. We were maybe 3’ from the next table and unfortunately the table next to us was a party of 10 celebrating a birthday and were very crass, rude and inappropriate. We let a lot of it go despite the fact they continued to interrupt our service by calling over to our shared server. What we could not let go was when they started vaping INSIDE the restaurant. It was clear that our server was not going to do anything so we sought out a manager who also did NOTHING to the table in question.

It was so unpleasant and disrespectful and completely ruined our special night out. In the future, we will not be celebrating special occasions or really any occasion there.

Very disappointed for this caliber of restaurant to allow the surrounding tables to have such an inferior evening.

My 10-year-old son enjoyed the filet mignon. The calamari was a little bit too spicy for his taste however. Though atmosphere was excellent, not as loud as usual.

I went today for a birthday Celebration. While it was a first time for my friend it was the 6 or 7th time for me. We had a wonderful evening with a great server named Amy who made the experience absolutely wonderful. With the quick delivery of our food and the well seasoned,temperatured and cooked meal we laughed our hearts out and ate until we were full. If not for covid we would have loved to hug the chef for the absolutely wonderful meal they served tonight.

We enjoyed having lunch and the service was excellent. I was quite concerned that my associated ordered a drink that cost more than a lunch item. $19.00 for a cocktail is a little outrageous. We will go again, but will refrain for that type of drink.

The Capital Grille used to be a top tier restaurant. This experience was more like an Applebee's in a bad neighborhood. The hostess made us wait 15 minutes to be seated, despite plenty of available tables within view. Half of the patrons walking around were no wearing masks. None of the tables were properly spaced for COVID19 regulations. There were several large groups, larger than the allowable group size for current limits. The food took forever to show up, and the waitress brought the wrong drinks after making us wait 30 minutes. Then - a large group of people came in for what appeared to be a bridal or baby shower - at least 20 people, all whooping and hollering, one of whom was a screaming toddler, who cried the entire night, while various family members chased him around the restaurant. Instead of a $200 a plate high end steakhouse, this was now a Chuck E Cheese in the housing projects. I understand that you cannot pick your clientele, or turn people away at the door - but booking a large group for an event and then not asking them to respect the privacy and peace and quiet of the other patrons is unacceptable. Terrible. Never again.

I always expect a stellar experience from CG but I’ve come away a bit disappointed. The salmon was just ok not the usual flavorful piece I’ve come to expect. The lobster macncheese was amazing but the size of the portion has dwindled to HALF what used to be a side portion. Far too expensive to skimp on portions imo.

Great to be back at CG again, we missed seeing everyone, especially our waiter Sebastian! He’s always welcoming and knows his stuff. His wine recommendations never fail us and have added to our favorites list with every visit! The brussel sprouts with bacon and coconut cream pie dessert is a must have! Can’t wait to go back!

Managers and staff were allowing customers to walk around without masks and social distancing was definitely nonexistent. People were being over served alcohol several people were clearly intoxicated and roaming around the restaurant without masks. The managers on duty and staff did nothing about it. Would never go back

Was great night and enjoyed very much our outdoor dining experience.

My meal was prepared outstandingly. However, my friend’s (bday girl) was over cooked and had to be sent back. They were happy to bring another (which again was a little more than medium plus) but edible.

Overall was fabulous. The service was on point as always. I would recommend and also go again with outdoor dining - heaters provided comfort) .

The steaks were just ok - the ribeye had more fat than others and the porcini rub was good - but all you could taste. The bartender seemed more intent on serving his friends at the bar than me and my wife. Oh well - there are other places to go.

We had a lunch date for a friend birthday. I asked for a table outside, which was set up for
three of us. Everything was perfect: the nicely set table, great food & wonderful, very
attentive service. We had vine, cheeseburgers, lobster salad, some desert & coffee.
The server brought a complimentary desert for the friend, who's birthday we were
celebrating, it was unexpected & very pleasant surprise!
We enjoyed the time together & very happy with right place we had chosen.
We'll be back soon & would recommend The Capital Grille, which never disappoint......
