Capital Grille is a traditional and conservative venue without being stuffy. The staff is personable yet professional,. You always get a great cut of meat or fish enhanced but not overpowered by accents of accompaniments. I had the fillet, mushrooms and pearl onions with balsamic accents. It was cooked perfectly. The creamed spinach is exceptional. My son had the beef and lobster tails. He said he wished he knew how they got the lobster tail so perfectly cooked. My husband had the scallops. He said it was fantastic. We’ll be back!

One of my faves, but it was super slow at restaurant because it was early, but for some reason our food took forever. The bar is always entertaining and the food is really good and consistent. Just slow service that day. :-(

I love visiting the Capital Grille because they never let us down. We had an extra person show up for our party and they quickly accommodated her. The food was excellent. We were celebrating 2 birthdays and the server did a fantastic job. We brought a cake with us and they stored it for us until it was time.

Food was very good and service was excellent as always. My one complaint was the New England clam chowder soup was not hot, tasteless and the potatoes undercooked. All the rest was great, the lamb chops, Caesar, steak sandwich.

Family and friends came to celebrate my daughter's 26th birthday and it was absolutely spectacular! The Capital Grille in Chevy Chase did a marvelous job with our party seating and location. Our server Marquette was A-mazing, very knowledgeable and attentive to our needs. The food and drinks were excellent and the birthday dessert tray was the icing on the cake! Everyone had wonderful time and the birthday girl was very pleased!!!

Well earned 5 stars for food, service and ambience. One star less for value because, while $$$ was expected, bill WAS stiff.
Low noise, particularly after asking for music to be turned down.
Superb high class restaurant!

My wife and I had dinner at Capital Grill on Saturday evening to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. We arrived a bit early but they were able to seat us right away. The table was decked out with small hearts (a nice touch). The waiter was on the ball, knowledgeable and made great recommendations. Food was outstanding and timed perfectly. We continue to come back to Capital Grille Chevy Chase because the service and food are consistent time after time.

Great service at the start. Pretty bad by the end.

Soups were mediocre at best. These people need to taste clam chowder from Millie’s.

Very good bread. Nothing exceptional or bad about meat.

Lots of money. Very little value.

CG is always good with one exception and I let them know my thoughts on this particular item years ago. Their steak tartare is horrendous; it’s only resemblance to ST is the raw meat. I sent CG’s corporate HQ years ago an authentic French recipe to try and still nothing has changed.
