This was a business meeting/meal and our server was very attentive when he needed to be and thoughtful about our time when he saw that we were deep in conversation. The food was delicious, the wine was good, and it made the meeting a pleasure.

My wife and I had our anniversary dinner there and got the swordfish topped with crab and an 8oz Sout African lobster as the special of the day. It was probably the best lobster we ever had. The staff was very attentive, would highly recommend eating here!

The Summer Wine Event "the Wines of Dan Duckhorn" is a great idea ! For a reasonable price you can taste good white and red wines to pair with great fish or meat ! highly recommended

From prompt seating to our table that was sprinkled with iridescent shiny birthday confetti to the nice birthday dessert our dinner experience with delicious‼️👏🏻 The staff was personal and attentive and the food could not have been more perfect. Two of us had filets and one had scallops, all done to scrumptious perfection.😋

As always, Capital Grill is Capital choice for special occasions!

Unfortunately accessing the restaurant was a challenge. Until you get to the garage under Bloomingdales, there are no directions to the restaurant on Western Av either from the website nor on the ground. Once in the garage there are signs directing you to the Capital Grille valet parking, but once you get to the valet area there was no one to park the car nor signs how to access the grille. We had to ask people walking through the garage and also in Bloomingdale's to get to the front door. We expressed these issues with the maitre'd upon entering, but he blamed construction in the garage. Otherwise we had a really enjoyable dinner.

Excellent service thanks to the very attentive, patient, and lovely Morgan. Although I have always had exceptional service here, I thought Morgan was the very best.

Even though I was enjoying my perfectly cooked salmon that followed my cup of the area’s finest clam chowder, I was surprised my guests were unhappy with their shrimp as each one was hard like little rocks.

They coconut cream pie was decadent and luscious as well the wonderful scoops of coconut sorbet. But the highlight was the service. Morgan was awesome!!!

Have been here several times for lunch. The grilled shrimp and veggie orzo was not as good as I had hoped. The 4 shrimp were somewhat small and kind of chewy. The corn chowder was great though. And always love their crackers and bread. Somewhat a good price - $20. Got a nice surprise treat for a birthday dessert.

We were celebrating our daughter’s 21st birthday. Our server Linda went out of her way to make her feel like a VIP. We had a wonderful dinner and enjoyed a Cabernet that was recommended. We all had filets and they were cooked perfectly. We added a lobster tail to share and it was divine. We didn’t order dessert, but a special dessert was brought out for our daughter. Perfect evening out for a special occasion.
