Celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary. We had a wonderful outdoor dinner with great food, service, and ambiance. Jose and Georgi were fantastic. They’ve created a wonderful outdoor experience with heat lamps, blankets, and coverings. Highly recommended.

My friend and I came to grab dinner and drinks yesterday evening and the entire experience was mediocre at best. I ordered calamari, lobster bisque and lobster Mac n cheese. The food was just ok...the calamari was a little too spicy for my liking. The hostess was not welcoming at all. Honestly, this put a damper on our mood from the beginning and is the reason why we left within an hour of being seated. I wish people would realize that all customers should feel welcomed regardless of race, culture, and gender. Needless, to say I will not be back to this Capital Grille.

Sidenote, our server was very friendly and accommodating but he seemed to be the only one who was having a good day.

Lunch was very good. The Clam Chowder was so silky and delicious, great starter for a cold October noon. Steak was grilled perfect to my expectation. Good place to have a

I have recommended this restaurant to several friends as possibly the perfect outdoor venue for a special lunch or dinner. Everybody knows how good their food is and how professional there service is. But now an added bonus is their extended patio area that enables them to socially distance their tables quite a bit. As far as the food, I tried their lamb rib chops— the best I’ve ever had!

Capital Grill could not have been a better experience. This was a special occasion, my husband's 30 year retirement from the military and from the moment we walked in the door Capital Grill made it special. The host welcomed us, and congratulated him. Our server did the same. The food was beyond delicious, I can't remember when I had a better meal. And to top off the wonderful evening Capital Grill personalized a desert with a Congratulations message. Their customer service was absolutely outstanding the food was phenomenal, I can't say enough what a great overall experience Capital Grill provided. We will definitely treat ourselves and come back more often. But I truly want to thank Capital Grill for helping to make the evening so special!

This is our family go-to restaurant for celebrations. This was another evening of family celebration! So thankful this restaurant was open and had available seating during this COVID season. Our waiter, Giorgio, has served us previously and he never disappoints. Every detail is covered, every question answered, and he is so very attentive. The food is always second to none. We never feel rushed to clear the table. And always leave feeling satisfied and thankful for such a fabulous place to go for our family celebration dinners.

Have been a fan of Capital Grille for a long time and sad to say the quality and experience has deteriorated over the years. Took the wife there to celebrate her birthday and had a truly disappointing experience. The service was inconsistent and extremely slow as the night went on. The food itself was uninspired. The wedge salad had barely any blue cheese and an unappetizing thick fatty bacon. When I asked for crispy bacon, I receive more of the same thick bacon that was overcooked but certainly not crisp. My ribeye steak was completely under-seasoned. Perhaps the most disappointing part of the night was that despite informing the restaurant ahead of time about our special occasion (something that was confirmed when checking in), there was nothing special done with dessert to acknowledge my wife's birthday. Truly disappointed & unlikely to go back again.

As Fall sets in & the weather gets cooler, our preferred patio seating in these pandemic times is turning into a chilly experience & takes away from enjoying our dining. it would be nice & helpful to all parties if the restaurant can provide outdoor heaters... otherwise, we will perhaps return to basic takeout during the cold season.

I had alerted the restaurant that we were celebrating my husband’s birthday and they took steps to make it special. Service was excellent and we got a chance to say hello to our favorite bartender, Jason. We’re big fans of Jonathan as well.

We always enjoy our evenings at the Chevy Chase Capitol Grille. Manager Kyle and Waitress Heather go above and beyond to make us feel welcome and appreciated. Excellent quality food - perfectly prepared. So enjoy "The Generous Pour" and am very sad to hear that there will not be "Wine and Wagyu" this year.

This was my 1st time at this location. I usually go to the one in DC. The outdoor seating was nice. Everyone was spread out and wearing masks when they were not eating so we felt very safe with COVID still being an issue. The waiter was nice however our order was wrong including the drinks, entree & the sides. The only that was correct was dessert. The food at this location was extremely bland. It did not have any seasoning .
