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.

Subpar for what I am used to at Capitol grill. I’m a big fan of the chain, but food was just ok here. I love the lobster mac and cheese ordinarily, but mine was very thin with no lobster. I realize that due to COVID things are tough, but I am paying a premium price for premium food and service and expect it to be delivered. Steaks were mediocre at best. GM needs to pay attention to what the staff is doing.

This review may not reflect all diners experiences nor is this likely to occur for each person during each dining but it was our dining experience at Capital Grille of Chevy Chase on our date night. Kevin, our waiter , was fantastic ! In fact, he saved the entire evening. Gave great recommendations and informed of specials. My filet was wonderful. That is the end of the good part. My girlfriend and i did NOT eat during the day of our dinner. We only had water and juice. Neither of us are ill presently. We had the same side dishes from the Grille but she had the "bone on veal" and "crab cakes", while i did not have either. Within one hour of her meal, she had severe gastro-intestinal issues which require us abandoning our Christmas shopping and heading home . she then called a medical friend and purchased some items from the Ukrainian pharmacy to feel better and calm the nausea and cramping. This was Saturday night and basically trashed our Sunday and most of her work Monday. She had to call in ill at work. could have happened at any restaurant but for our large tab, i cant recommend this type of result and illness to anyone - friend or not. my apologies.

My friend and I came to grab dinner and drinks yesterday evening and the entire experience was mediocre at best. I ordered calamari, lobster bisque and lobster Mac n cheese. The food was just ok...the calamari was a little too spicy for my liking. The hostess was not welcoming at all. Honestly, this put a damper on our mood from the beginning and is the reason why we left within an hour of being seated. I wish people would realize that all customers should feel welcomed regardless of race, culture, and gender. Needless, to say I will not be back to this Capital Grille.

Sidenote, our server was very friendly and accommodating but he seemed to be the only one who was having a good day.
