We celebrated Father’s day. Linda Calderon was the person assigned to our table and she was very attentive and helpful, she made sure that my husband allergy to nuts and mustard was taken care when ordering and delivering the food. The one star less is because the roasted carrots that were served with his seabass were very hard and was not possible to cut them with the regular knife, i had to cut it for him with my steak knife. Otherwise, everything was very good.

Spectacular Father’s Day lunch with my family. Filets were perfect and the crab put it them over the top. Don’t forget the new 1/2 and 1/2 Manhattan. Be sure to ask for Curt. His service is second to none.

Have been to this Capitol Grill before and some might call me a regular and that's because they rately disappoint; the bartenders Jason & John are exceptional, the servers and the Porcini rubbed delmonico & porterhouse with creamed spinach are the reason I keep coming back.

The Capital Grill was a perfect place to hod our special occassion dinner. The food was fabulous, the staff and service friendly, helpful and answered ALL the questions my guests needed as it was their first time at a restaurant off this style. Our waiter, Kevin explained everything to everyone to help them find the perfect meal for them. My only concern was it was a bit chilly for one of my guests who had a sweater, scart and then her sons suit jacket... I know the staff was not chilly. Only other concern is to help even out the distribution of loud celebratory diners... so that everyone can hear what is being said at their table... or redistribute them from quiet family tables having a low key celebration. It was a great evening. Thank you /capital Grill. You are my "go-to" restaurant for occassions and gathering of friends and family.

Sad as I was when the Capital Grille in Los Angeles, closed, any Capital Grille is my go to restaurant when I need a spectacular place for a large party celebration. This Capital Grille did not disappoint. Service was exceptional the food amazing and the wine suggestion spot on. We table shared oysters and steak tartare, both presented beautifully and easily shareable. All steaks were amazing and the fish was cooked to perfection. With 13 of us, that no one had any issues shows what a fantastic restaurant this truly is. We arrived early - after graduation and sat in the bar. My daughter showed the bartender the ingredients for a drink and she made it perfectly. They sat us early, which was wonderful. Both graduates received a complementary dessert trio which they both loved. We shared desserts with great suggestions from the wait staff and they even brought some extras on the staff, just in case. A truly unforgettable meal. Come back to Los Angeles, Capital Grille, we miss you!

We decided to celebrate a graduation at Capital Grille. Everyone was inviting and friendly. We had a reservation and were seated right away even with a busy Friday evening crowd. Our server called the graduate by name several times and even made sure that she has a celebratory dessert. Even though it was a busy evening, our server was dedicated to making sure we had everything and was very attentive. I wish I could remember her name, cause she was amazing. Everything tasted wonderful and the drinks were smooth and strong. Thank you for such a lovely evening.
