As usual, very good service and very good food. This was a birthday and the staff were attentive, offered congratulations, spread shiny confetti on the table took photos and framed them, as well as offered a delightful dessert. We could not have felt more pampered and pleased.

We went to the Chevy Chase, MD Capital Grill for my son’s 16th Birthday. Our waiter, Charles was excellent in every way. He was knowledgeable and made our special night even more special. The steaks were all cooked to perfection and the sides were both bountiful and tasty. I would highly recommend this Capital Grill location for any special occasion or just to celebrate life with a great steak..

Good food. Great Service. Lunch can be rather pricey, (depending on what you order), but overall it is value for money. I love Capital Grille in Chevy Chase. They are consistent. I have never had a less than stellar meal, or encountered subpar service. Highly recommend this location.

We have eaten a late lunch at Capital Grille several times and have enjoyed the experience each time. We have never been disappointed with the quality of the food, the service, the customer -centered attitudes of the employees, especially the wait staff. Many of the reviews we read included positive comments about Kevin Walsh. On 10/27/2017, he lived up to all the good things that were said about him in previous reviews.

We had a late leisure lunch and the food and service was superb. I highly recommend the Chevy Chase location. We had some of our normal favorites like the lobster bisque and the lobster salad. They also have a great value for $20 that includes soup or salad and an entree. We got the shrimp and grits was delicious.

The Chevy Chase Capital Grille is always a first class experience. Starting as the host/hostess greets you by name, then the great service by all of the staff, and the quality of the food, this particular Capital Grille never disappoints!

Our waiter was outstanding. Only issue was that we were seated directly under the air conditioning from above, the hostess kept turning it up when our waiter turned it down to accommodate us.

Great value - $20 lunch.

We stopped into the bar for a casual dinner Friday night and were welcomed into the bar area, which was filled with a nice crowd. Three of us had the burger special - Caramelized Onion Wagyu Burger with Jarlsberg, Mozzarella Cheese, Shallot Mayo. Best burger I've had in years. My daughter had the tuna, cooked perfectly. Shout out to our server, Heather. She provided great recommendations and wonderful service with a big smile.

We highly recommend dinner in the bar if you are not up for the full treatment in the restaurant. Love the Capital Grille. High quality food, comfortable environment, and great service all around.

One of my fave restaurant. Ordered the lobster and crab burger outstanding! Also couldn’t done here without ordering the lobster Mac and cheese always great and best Mac and cheese I’ve had from all the higher end restaurants. Service was excellent!

What a great experience! It's the 3rd time I've been here since my daughter was accepted at American University. The food and staff have always been terrific but this time I was shocked that they remembered us on a very personal level. The best dining experience I've ever had! Special thanks to our hostess and to our server, Morgan!!

We go to Capitol Grille often for a great meal, and use it to entertain visiting friends or business people. The steaks are their specialty and are not to be missed. The service is always impeccable. One caution: the breads that come out first are incredible and if you're not careful, you'll be full long before the salad even arrives.
