Server was a little disengaged. Drinks took an eternity to arrive. One was incorrect. Wine choice was not available.

When asked how a dish was presented - it was restated exactly as detailed in the menu. Little personal engagement or charecter.

Food was ok - not enough seasoning on the steak and little to no grill marks - felt like it was baked rather than seared.

We sat outside on the terrace. Sadly they haven’t bothered to having much lighting outside (in spite of the fact it could be installed for $100) so you are eating in the dark where you really can’t see the food. Also are we’re at a table for 2 but it is really too small so we were maneuvering stuff all evening. These issues are easily avoided if they took seriously that people dine outside.
The food was fine. We had a seafood grande plateau which is really reasonably priced considering the volume and quality.

Great dining experience, and fantastic service. Always a treat to dine here. Highly recommend tuna tartar for appetizer. For main dish and sides, my favorite is the bone in filet, brussel sprouts and the lobster Mac and cheese. Also love the Stoli Doli cocktail.

Abdul and the rest of the team provided outstanding service. The food was delicious and we never waited long for anything. Very attentive service! Highly recommend!
I just wish other patrons would not come to fine restaurants with little children who understandingly don’t have the patience for a two hour dinner. Not fun to hear little children crying and carrying on.

The dinner and service were fantastic!
Everything was wonderful except the table next to us was too loud. It wasn't the restaurant's fault that some of their other diners were not respectful to other guests around them.
We could hardly hear each other at our table due to the table next to us.
We will come here again-always great food and great service.

Our waiter Leo was so on point! We had a significant allergy in the group and he was reassuring by constantly letting us know he had addressed the allergy so we never had to be concerned. They made us feel special on our anniversary. The food was impeccable and exactly as ordered. Everything was on point! The outside area was small but perfect. Highly recommend for a date night or special occasion. (Or even because it’s Tuesday!) if I have learned anything since COVID it’s that everyday is a reason to celebrate! The manager ( I think his name was Scott?) was making the rounds. He was very friendly and super approachable! I could go on! Great experience!

We were celebrating a birthday and having a special lunch. Everything was delicious and our server, , Brandy did a lovely job.
The lobster salad is one of our favorites and a small portion of onion soup was just the right size. I highly recommend this restaurant for celebrations.

Our dinner was excellent and our server was polite. My only complaint is that we went early in order to avoid crowds and it was not at all busy. Yet we felt that we were rushed through the experience which we would have liked to enjoy. Soup and appetizer arrived at the same time and entree quickly followed. Staff were accommodating but I recommend they slow down so that guests can enjoy the experience.

Food as always was delicious. Best steaks around--super tender. Pricey, but you expect that with beef prices and the quality of this restaurant. Sides are large portions for sharing. Everything is a la carte. Extensive wine menu, both by the glass and by bottles. Service was good; a little annoyed by another server who got into an extensive loud conversation with the patrons at the table next to us. While we didn't enjoy hearing their conversation, they were obviously having a wonderful time. We were there for an anniversary dinner, and they sprinkled little hearts on the table and gave us a beautiful mini dessert. There is underground parking, and they give you a voucher for two hours free. Overall, so glad we went!

Late night bite after moving my son into American University. Sat at the bar. Bartender was exceptional. Perfect dirty martini. Had the filet with a side of the amazing brussel sprouts and mashed potatoes. Always a perfect meal at all of the Capital Grilles

Our experience was consistent with its reputation. The food was outstanding, prepared exactly as promised, and delivered by an amazing server who was friendly, accommodating, professional, knowledgeable, and attentive. The ambiance and vibe were perfect. I found nothing in our experiencing to complain about. It was an expensive evening out but worth it for what we were celebrating. Highly recommend.
