We went for the wagyu and wine special and were certainly not disappointed. Burgers were large and delicious, wine sublime. Wait staff and greeters were top notch. Had been many years since we dined at a Capital Grille, never before at this location, and will definitely return soon.

It was our 50th Anniversary. The restaurant could not have been any more welcoming. They put confetti on the table and gave us dessert and champagne. What a wonderful surprise! Our server was adorable and right on the ball. The steaks were outstanding! We would like to thank the Capital Grill and whole heartedly recommend the restaurant.

Love Capital Grille and always go when I am in DC. The salads are amazing as are the wagyu burgers, steaks, seafood. All of it. Everything is always fresh and made to order. Love the variety of bread brought to the table also. Will be back in a few weeks. I love it that much!

You go to Capital Grille for a steak if that is your passion. Yes, the menu has many more options, but a beautiful filet that is perfectly prepared, as it was ordered, is a true treat. Good salads and large baked potatoes help make an excellent meal.

The level of service was spectacular. Our first time there and everyone handled their business appropriately and professionally. They did not bother us but were always there when we needed something. Clearly the staff communicates well with each other. Of course, the food, as described by our server, was wonderful and cooked to perfection. We never felt pressured or uncomfortable. The room temperature was just right. The manager stopped by and checked in with us. The server could converse on any subject and described every dish as if he were the chef -- poetically. If one has the money, go as often as possible!

I am sorry to say this is the first time I have been to a Capital Grille where I walked away disappointed. The service was excellent, but the steak I was served was only average. I have always had outstanding steaks at the Capital Grille(this was my first time at the Chevy Chase location) and was quite surprised this steak didn't meet their typical standards. Of course I wasn't going to return it as it was still a good steak. And I didn't want to ruin the "ambiance"by telling the manager who checked on us numerous times that I was disappointed. Again, it was still a good steak! But not the usual experience I am accustomed to at a Capital Grille. The service as always, was outstanding, and the staff was friendly and attentive, but not overbearing. I of course will return and give it another "chance" so to speak. Still a great place to eat!

The food was delicious. The waiter was fantastic. She was very attentive and explained every dish in detail. I had the scallops which were fantastic. My mom and brother had the ribeye, which they loved. The biggest surprise was three birthday deserts on the house because we were all celebrating our birthdays. A lovely touch.

I go to cap grill ever couple weeks but last night I got my regular order and they brought out the wrong order. This has never happened before. It was getting late and I was starved so I decided to keep the dish and eat it but it wasn’t very good. I expected them to comp it or something aside from dessert.

The Generous Pour is the greatest wine program, and a *must do every summer! We had a lovely dinner (steaks and the amazing tuna) there with a friend, and everything really was perfect. The GP program always gets us in there in August, but the reason we go to the Chevy Chase restaurant all year long is for the 5-star service Curt delivers. The meal is always great because he takes such good care of us. Kevin is the other team member who makes us feel so welcome, like family, and is also on lookout for how to make our experience the best. Both of them are wonderful ambassadors for The Capital Grill, and what keeps us coming back time and again.

Everything top tier -- from the warm greeting upon arrival to the ambiance, the elegant layout of the restaurant, the comfortable seating, superb and attentive service and the excellent and delicious food. (Salmon was among the best I have ever had.) Also validated 3 hour parking in the garage and easy access to the Metro. A return visit is definitely in the cards.
