The Capital Grille is one of our favorite restaurants. The food never disappoints, the ambiance at the bar or dining upstairs is perfect. We celebrated Thanksgiving there this year and thoroughly enjoyed the Prix Fixe Thanksgiving dinner. Would do it again in a heartbeat!

Another year of enjoying our Thanksgiving dinner here. The Capital Grille has yet to fail our dining expectations. Melanie and Ashley are our favorite servers!

Such a great experience with a fantastic waiter as well. The food is always delicious. Potatoes au gratin - Yummm!!! The wine list is spectacular. I also love how they have calories on the menu - some really surprised me.

Everything was very nice except my husband was annoyed that the hostess was aloof, not speaking when she took us up in the elevator, and how she sat us. Very unusual for this restaurant.

We love Wagu and Wine! Nikki was our very excellent waitress. The bartenders dry gin Martini are the best I’ve had.

We are huge CG fans.

We ordered salads but somewhere the order got lost. It was okay, but odd since we saw the waiter write it down. My fish would have been excellent but it was literally drowned in too much butter sauce. Same for the Brussels sprouts, way over-sauced.

Fantastic meal for a party of 9. The food was perfect and the service was excellent. We were celebrating two birthdays and our guests of honor were definitely well cared for. The steak was great and cooked true to order. The tuna tartar was spectacular. It's not inexpensive, but I felt that we received good value for what we paid.

Fabulous food and service. Best steak house in the DC area. Wife’s birthday and restaurant gave her a car and provided a wonderful complimentary dessert. Will always come back especially for special occasions and Tyler, our waiter, was just the nicest young man.

I wish the wonderful steaks were smaller and the prices reasonable but once in a while it is nice to splurge for melt in your mouth steaks.

We are 2-4 monthly regulars and Keats request the same table. They sat a very noisy booth if 8 next to us and we could not hear ourselves talk and had to be asked to relocate.

Consistent. You know what to expect and are not let down. I think it is interesting that Capital Grille acts as a neighborhood restaurant for folks living in the area. It doesn't have a neighborhood ambiance or neighborhood prices. But not surprising as the options are limited.

The food quality was not the same this visit. The beans were flavorless, the fries were undercooked. The quality of the meat was fantastic as always, but mine was served in a plate that had clearly been in the freezer. I asked for a
Pittsburgh style cold center, not cold outside. After years ordering my steak like this, first time they have done this. Not sure if I was supposed to put my beans and fries on this cold plate?
