Amazing $22 “Plates” lunch. The clam chowder was terrific, we split the the chicken sandwich and the salmon and we though both were SO delicious. Our waiter, Michael, was so personable and helpful! So glad we were able to take advantage of the lunch specials!

Service was excellent. I’m a regular at Capital Grill and i was very disappointed in the steak. I ordered the 36oz porterhouse, cooked medium well and the steak was medium rare. The steak was over cooked on the outside and under cooked in the inside. I was unable to eat the steak at all.

As always, we enjoyed a delightful dinner at The Capital Grill. The food and service were, as always, very good. While we would prefer a more modern decorating scheme, the interior is attractive enough despite having only old portraits of men displayed but perhaps I might have missed portraits of women? We will return, I am sure, to celebrate other special occasions.

Unpleasant ( to us) and too loud music made it hard for our table to relax, converse and enjoy the dining experience.

Usually we love eating here but this time for our son’s high school graduation it was disappointing. After lovely and delicious meals this past summer and fall, I’m not sure if we’ll be back. The restaurant was busy but not completely full. There was no reason for poor service. Steaks were all undercooked even though we order the same there before and after the food was served the server did not return in a timely manner to check leaving our party almost finished while others were waiting on steak. In addition my husband and I ordered wine by the glass and were served each other’s. The only time the server was efficient was when he came to pick up the check after we paid.

Generally have a very good experience. Love the Cast Iron Garlic Shrimp, my steak was cooked to perfection, and the Brussels were supreme. My one issue had to do with my salad. I ordered the Roasted Beet and Goat Cheese salad. Frankly I think I got a substitution. My beets tasted more like pickled beets and I could not find any trace of roasted pistachios. I probably should have said something, but I did not want to disturb the flow of the dinner. I didn't view it as a big deal, but it's something to note.

Ive dined at this location, as well as other Capital Grilles . This recent visit was not up to prior level of service. The restaurant was not crowded or busy. There was more that sufficient staff--our server was slow, inattentive and often unable to be found . Food had to be returned---one salad was not fresh, one was served with ingredients the guest is allergic to. AND the server was told TWICE about the allergies. It took a huge effort to find him, get his attention to correct both problems. I had to get up, walk to the kitchen myself to have the salad made correctly!

Courses were served, and had to wait a long time for eating utensils to be provided. We had to "ask" for forks.

One guest wanted fresh ground pepper for her salad--our server was holding the pepper mill, and stopped to have an extremely long conversation with diner at another table---a table he was not covering. Eventually I got up , walked over to him to pull him away from being distracted and over social--to have him take care of the requests and needs at my table--one that was his responsibility.

Coffee was served by another wait staff person--with out spoons, sweeteners, cream or milk.. Just left the coffee on table and left.

The manager was passing by , and cheerily asked --is everything ok. He seemed surprised when I said NO , and needed his assistance for basics items --like spoons.

Because the server was slow, distracted, and missing often , lunch took over 3.5 hours --- not acceptable.

Id love an explanation from management--until then I will choose a different establishment in with to dine with clients . The service and incorrect orders were an embarrassment

Took my family for a post-holidays lunch and we were seated in a great booth near the windows. The staff quickly ensured we were comfortable and took our drink orders. They were attentive but far from overbearing. I've always had great service at Capital Grill -- Chevy Chase. Our meals were perfectly prepared and I can't wait to get back. Well done!!

My wife and I were there for restaurant week. We decided to eat at the bar, which is our comfort place. We were welcomed at the bar by Jason who's a fantastic bartender. He made us feel at home and was 50% of the reason we loved it. The rest was the food and the ambiance. Everything from the salad to the entree was superb. Well worth the cost.

Steak was burnt on the bottom and not edable. Steak was dry. Green beans were dry as well. Very disappointing. Will not return.
