Eat there regularly. Consistently great food and service. While people always think about the steaks (which are excellent), I really enjoy the tuna.

Enjoyable dining experience in every way. Service was attentive without feeling rushed at all. We came for lunch on a weekday -- perfect for a delicious meal and quiet conversation. Loved the "clubby" atmosphere and decor.

Nice atmosphere. Great service. We wanted a leisurely lunch with an old friend and therecwas no attempt to rush us. Lobster in my salad was a bit overcooked. Otherwise food was fine but not notable.

Never disappoints. Food is always excellent. Friendliest staff in the world. Dined here often while my daughter was at American University first semester freshman year. She’s transferring to University of Miami. We’ll miss the capital grill more than anything!

Our steaks were perfectly prepared and the service attentive without being intrusive. The accompanying sautéed spinach and roasted mushrooms were an excellent addition to our meal. The Capital Grill rarely disappoints.

Family of 4 went for my son’s 20th birthday. Setting was lovely and quiet. Our server, Ronli, was the best - great suggestions, good attention to details and nice meal pacing. Three of us had steak with the side dishes and one seafood. Everyone loved their meals. Would definitely return!

The Capital Grille provided another amazing experience for my office team and was the perfect setting for annual holiday party. Our service attendant Kevin make sure that everyone was taking care of he gave us particular attentive service and wanted to make sure that everyone was happy. And he did it with a smile. One of the best places you can take clients guest and family for memorable experience.

Capital Grille is a favorite of my husband and me. The one in Chevy Chase is a five minute drive from our home, but we’d spend much more time driving there were that necessary. Our dinner, wine and dessert are unfailingly perfect which is equally true of the service. The atmosphere is a throwback to the past, intimate, warm and club-like, a welcome change from most of today’s restaurants. There simply are no negatives.

Mixed bag. Noisy bar scene with 20+ middle aged corporate guys drinking beers before a private dinner upstairs. Server was amazing. Food was good except cold truffle Parmesan Fries.

Bar booth was noisy. Server Michelle was amazing. Food was tasty overall except truffle Parmesan Fries were served cold and side dishes served long after entrees. Michelle fixed the Fries ASAP. Managers running around with ear pieces and checklists. No table side manner. For luxury dining managers should be guest centric, no? At $150 per person, it’s expected. I think Darden ownership is taking its toll on this once fine concept.
