Normally the food here is great. My daughter food was great my food the chefs special filet was very crusty and hard. If it weren’t for the fantastic server I would have sent my steak back. But we all make mistakes and I will keep coming.

Our server was great and the restaurant is beautiful and quiet. Our appetizer and dessert were great but the steaks were just okay and the lobster Mac was actually inedible. It was flavorless and the pasta was gummy and not cooked. Its pretty pricey, so for food thats not great I'm not sure we will be back.

We were celebrating a special dual occasion, my wife’s 82nd birthday and our 24th wedding anniversary. Dow, our server was excellent. He helped make the evening special. Our food as always was exceptional.

We were seated in the rear in a lovely quiet section. Perfect!!!

The Capital Grille in Chevy Chase lived up to our expectations based on previous meals at other members of the chain. The steaks were delicious and perfectly cooked, and the wine was excellent. Even the smallest portions of steak were quite large. Appetizers, side dishes, and desserts were good. Service was very good, and we were able to linger over conversation without feeling as all pressured. Capital Grille seems to be a very reliable choice in every location that we have tried.

Excellent food. Polite and courteous servers and staff. Atmosphere is very good for any and many occasions. Good for large parties. Private rooms are very nice. The wine selection is outstanding, and the bar is well managed. Parking is ample and convenient. Highly recommended.

We have been to the Capital Grille many times for dinner but never Easter Brunch. Wow, we were so impressed. From the extra blueberry bread to the incredible desserts, the food, service and ambiance were perfect. All the starters were tasty but the main courses were amazing. The lobster frittata had two full lobster tails on top of it. The steak entree was a full size bone in New York Strip.
Capital Grille you rock! Happy April. See you soon!

So good! We got soup, salad, steaks, & 3 sides. It was all great!! My steak came out a little over cooked (medium instead of medium rare) but I refuse to send back a quality steak for a small difference (if it came out medium well I would have returned). Even being slightly overcooked the steak was still fantastic. We were celebrating my husband's 30th birthday and we had little decorations at our table. It was so nice to have a special night out.

3/17 (my birthday) was my second time in 2 weeks eating at the restaurant in Chevy Chase. My sons and I had the same reaction each time - the steaks were poorly seasoned. We usually season beef with sea or kosher salt and cracked pepper. Neither was on these steaks and they were bland. The sear on my filet mignon was overdone and it was not until the end when I got to the heart of the meat did I think it was good. Usually I expect a filet to melt in my mouth - it did not. My sons (age 12) is a foodie and stated that he would have done a better job seasoning and cooking his NY Strip. My 15 year old agreed, particularly since his garlic butter lack flavor.

We love the location to our apartment, but we may have to take a break and try BLT or some other spot next time.

Cheers!

the restaurant didn't honor the request for a table by the window made in the reservation although when they called to confirm the reservation they confirmed all the requests during the phone call. On arrival at the restaurant we were taken to a booth by the kitchen door and had to complain to be seated in a booth in another area. This ruined the start of the meal especially since it was a special occasion. The rest of the meal was fine.

Had a business dinner - requested to be seated in a quite area and they put us in a far corner away from the crowd + speakers. Great service by Charlie. He was discreet and took care of us when we needed it.

Steaks were done perfectly, sides and appetizers were good. Plus they didn't rush us and we were able to hammer out a lot of details while they worked quietly and efficiently around us.

Would highly recommend.

Capital Grille almost always provides a top-notch meal. Everything a standout. Seafood platter for three was amazing and fresh and filling. The steaks cooked perfectly and delicious and a huge lobster tail succulent and cooked, of course, perfectly. Only issue was the wine was corked and when brought to the attention of the server the server replied "I thought it smelled musty." So why serve it?
