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.

First time here this year. Wonderful dining experience, as always! Originally made the reservation for outside, but changed to indoor, as it was a bit noisy. After that adjustment everything was wonderful.

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.

Overall good. Except for cheap metal chairs, and given it was a cold evening, metal chairs with no cushion was not very nice.

Worst value ever. Server was awful. As a family who had celebrated many occasions at the restaurant we could not have been more disappointed. Seemed like no effort to mimic the ambiance of the interior of the restaurant in outdoor dining. Server AWFUL. Took more than 30 min to get drinks. Second table in our party had dessert before we had entrees. Server never came to table to see if anything was needed. Did not even check if meat was cooked properly. We had to ask another server to find ours to get a check and then had to go into the restaurant to pay since server dropped check but then never came back. So very very disappointing for what should have been a terrific meal. Not sure we would go back which saddens us since this was our “special place.”
