Very slow service. Covid related, I presume (short staffed). All good.

This is the place to come for a special event. Their attention to detail, the impeccable food, if you don’t feel pampered and special after dining here....something is wrong with you.

I have been to this Capital Grille location on numerous occasions, but on my most recent visit it was a bit off. Our server was very nice and helpful, so that was not the problem. But, there was a mistake in my friend's drink order from the bar (not sure who's fault), and it took a long to fix, nearly 15 minutes. So I had my drink and he had nothing. I ordered what I was told was their house salad (field greens, butter lettuce with parmesan vinaigrette) and it was absolutely nothing special; not the usual great steakhouse signature salads that one expects (I wished that I had ordered the wedge). Also, we both ordered our steaks medium, and mine came back pretty well done, so had to be sent back. They were very cordial and apologetic about that. Finally, when ordering ice cream to finish the meal, they only had vanilla, and NO TOPPINGS! Anyway, I will go back, but this meal was a B-

Everything was excellent from service to food. I used to work in the food service industry and I was just impressed by it all. Kudos to the staff for making my experience worthwhile and for making sister's birthday memorable. Worth the money and will return again! Bravo!

The food was slightly off. The spinach had a little more garlic then needed. The Brussels sprouts were just a bit over cooked. The filet had too much salt and the shrimp cocktail was very tough. The shrimp was the main issue but the other things mentioned were just slightly off. For this restaurant we expect things to be perfect as they usually get it right. So we were a bit disappointed but not so much that we would not return. Good wine list but pricey. Service was outstanding.

Our experience was excellent. The food, outdoor atmosphere, and our server were all great. However, we were sorry to see a manager yelling at and treating staff poorly. One waiter accidentally dropped a wine glass - which we all know happens and is not a big deal - but the manager overreacted, making the situation worse. We later noticed him throwing his hands up at a different server as well. I believe the managers name is “Alvetus” (not sure about spelling).

Again, we had a wonderful experience and will defiantly be back, but do hope that next time we see everyone treated with respect and decency.

Ate outside, service was superb. Waiter extremely knowledgeable about the wine list. His recommendation was excellent. Food was good but not great. Ordered medium rare bone in NY strip. It was medium well. Medium rare by the bone only. Should have sent it back but I was hungry and didn’t want to make a scene with my group. Shallot butter sauce was overdone.

Our waitress kept getting lost when we needed her for things. 🤦‍♀️ The food selection was okay and my lobster came out luke warm so it went cold before I could eat the first one. 😕 Not sure whats going on with the menu but the seafood selection was looking prettt short.... small, lacking.🥴 It's normal packed with many choices. So we going to stay away for a bit because we were not satisfied with our visit.
