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

I went with my boyfriend and another couple. The food was not only outstanding but the service was incredible. I have had this waiter before and I just know that the last name is Walsh. He is truly top notch!

Not as good as in the past. Food was good, but not great. Server was nice, but he did not show up until 5-10 minutes after our steaks were served. We wanted a sauce on the side. By the time he came, we were finished eating (doggie bag).

We had a very nice meal. Good food and service. We needed to change tables because of strong draft. This was accomplished easily.

Another delicious meal at the Capital Grille in the books. Their Metropolitan Week Dinner is terrific. We started the evening with drinks at the bar with Michelle and Jason (two of the BEST bartenders in DC) and then went upstairs for dinner. James was excellent as our server and Jose, his table assistant, attentive and friendly.

We happened to dine at the bar downstairs and while everything was wonderful, a birthday party behind us was a bit loud. We should have gone upstairs.

Had a great time with my wife and baby. Great service, great food, next time we’ll try the drinks. I had my eye on the Old (In) Fashion. Kona rubbed bone-in was delicious, my wife had a great filet. The mashed potatoes were very good as well. We had excellent service from Jose. Very impressed all around, great dinner, we will be back.

Dined several times at this location, as well as other Capital Grille locations around the U.S. While the atmosphere and service were exceptional (as expected), the food was below the standards set by this location and others. Defiantly not the “proud” price paid.

Excellent food and service is never a surprise at Capital Grille, but our meal last night met with something even better. After I mentioned a very slight error with our order, the entire meal was replaced with speed and aplomb. Thank you for making the evening so festive!

The place was beautifully decorated for the holiday. Our server was perfect as were the team that greeted us at the desk and even the server’s assistant who brought out our food. Perfect night.
