We had a wonderful time at the Capital Grille. The food was fabulous. Two of us ordered the steak/lobster tail combination and the other two ordered steaks. We added several sides including brussel sprouts, asparagus, mashed potatoes and wild mushrooms. We weren't able to finish everything (the portions are generous) but we loved what we ate. Capital Grille also has a wine special in progress. For $20/person you can choose one or all of eight wine selections and have as much as you want of each. (Uber or Lyft transportation is recommended for those exercising this option or, perhaps, a designated driver.) The desserts were outstanding. We all shared two choices; the chocolate cake with ice cream and the apple strudel with ice cream. The service from our waiter, Abdul H. was impeccable. Every one of us was delighted and hope to return soon.

My daughter treated me to a dinner at Capital Grille to celebrate my retirement, and what a treat it was! I enjoyed the best meal I've had in a very long time. The food was superb, and the wait staff was attentive and friendly. If you go, don't miss the flourless chocolate dessert - worth every calorie!!

Service was amazing. The filet, Oscar style - wow! Melts in your mouth. I will definitely order again. Wedge salad was a perfect starter. The wine special they have right now, the Generous Pour, is a really good deal for several wines but only $28.. Really appreciate the great service from Jason and John.

We came here for our anniversary dinner during Restaurant Week. They decorated our reserved table with little red foil hearts, which was cute and a pleasant surprise. We had the Generous Pour wine flight which had of 5 types of wine. Our 1st course was clam chowder and salad. For our entrees we ordered the Bone-In NY Strip and the Veal Tomahawk Chop. Both very delicious and were large cuts. Dessert was chocolate cake and a Creme Brulee. They definitely did a good job choosing delicious dishes and generous portions for Restaurant Week.

The restroom could use improvement. The toilet paper they stocked were very thin and weak so there was a lot of toilet paper confetti on the floor from people unable to roll out a long piece without it ripping.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal. Clearly restaurant week meant heavy volume- our server somehow managed to pay us exceptional attention and we had an amazing experience. All aspects of our meal were first rate. We will definitely be back soon.

There is absolutely nothing special about this restaurant. A group of friends went for restaurant week. I wasn't impressed. Actually, I was a little disappointed. I had heard such good things, but it was just an average restaurant. We had salmon, NY strip steak and filet mignon with grilled shrimp and crab oscar, clam chowder, mixed green salad, mashed potatoes, green beans and either creme brulee or flourless chocolate cake. It was a good meal, nothing special at all.

I was really disappointed with the service and food during this visit. The best service I received was from the hostess stand. We were warmly greeted, given parking validation, and escorted to our table. That's where the service ended. The restaurant wasn't busy so I'm not sure why our server was not more attentive and we had to wait so long for the bread service. We weren't asked about refills of our water glasses or the beverages we ordered during the course of our meal. My food was not prepared as ordered and the garnishment was wilted. My last visit before this to this was great. Food and service were great which is why I decided to come back and bring a guest. I was embarrassed and disappointed because this experience didn't measure up to my last. I ordered the exact same meal and beverage as last time however, everything was off. I'm glad I wasn't celebrating a special occasion and I will seek out another location if I decide to dine at this restaurant in the future.

Reserved a booth near a window-restaurant called and reservation was confirmed. When I arrived at the restaurant I was taken to a table near a window in the most secluded part of the restaurant-exactly the opposite of what I was expecting. Of course I refused the table and was seated elsewhere, but the “back of the bus” experience put a damper on the whole evening!

We were placed in a small room with two families with loud and misbehaving children. The staff was well aware and it was absurd. Very poor decisions by the staff — several others asked to be re seated. We should have!

The service was excellent, particularly Meostafa, our server. He did an exceptional job. The greeters were very pleasant. Unfortunately, our food was just so-so. It was much too salty and over cooked. Hopefully the kitchen was just off that day. I typically enjoy the food at the Capital Grill. But, not this time.

There is nothing I would change about our experience the night we dined here. There was one loud table but that was not the restaurants fault. The food was outstanding and our server was very knowledgeable about the wine and the food. This was out third trip to Chevy Chase and we always plan our "special night" at The Capital Grille. Expensive but worth every penny and then some!

What a magical evening. We invited two couples to join us for the generous pour (the best deal in DC) and we had a blast! Our favorite waiter, Abdul, was supposed to be off that night but he came in for us. How great is that? The service was perfection on top of the great food, fabulous ambiance, incredible wine and super friends. Thank you Capital Grille for hiring such great people and providing outstanding food, drink and venue.
Does it get any better than this?
