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......

Celebrated my father’s 75th birthday lunch here. Bao, our server was phenomenal. From the food to the dessert. We’ve always loved coming here to celebrate big occasions.

I was glad to see that you had moved the nice chairs outside. We were there a few weeks before to celebrate my wedding anniversary and the steel chairs were horrible. It didn’t help that it was a cooler evening so there weren’t enough heaters, the chairs were cold and uncomfortable, and we sat on a slight slope, which made it hard to enjoy our meal. In the past, they brought out bubbly for us to celebrate and a Sprite for my son. This year, nothing. Quite disappointing.

Not sure what the plan is with the cold weather coming but we would definitely dine again if appropriate measures are taken to provide a safe, warm, and enjoyable experience. We’ve never had a bad meal here and have always come back. It’s our go-to restaurant for filet, wine and dessert. Tried other steak places but always came back.

The service was amazing but when I’m paying $62 for my meal I would expect the food I ordered to have the right temperature that I requested. The server didn’t offer to cook me another one but at the time my party had all his food and I did not wanna wait to eat. also the server did give us a complementary dessert for the mistake. Overall it was a good night but I was disappointed with the quality of the food. This was my favorite restaurant that is why I reserved for my birthday.

The Capital Grille is our go-to for special occasions, and this was our anniversary dinner. Our server, Renato, was very nice. Dinner was delicious. I had The Generous Pour, which was a great value accompaniment to dinner. The cheesecake was a delicious nice touch in recognition of our special night. Thanks again to TCG for a great evening.
