We came here as a second option & the option for Vegans were slim to none. However, the kitchen is more than happy to accommodate to the best of their ability. A dedicated Gluten Free menu is available.

Arrived about 2:50pm right before lunch service was ending & Ashley, our Server did not rush us out & gave us good service all the way through.

Lunch; 11:30A-3P & Dinner; 4P-10P.

Two levels for dining with upstairs accessible by stairs & an elevator.

The Sous Chef Jorge accommodated my request for a Vegan Pasta by making me a bowl of Cannelloni tossed amongst fresh garden goodies.

Valet Parking, parking validation up to 3 hours if you park in the garage entering at Friendship Boulevard/Willard Avenue & a stone throw away from the Friendship Heights Metro Station - Red Line.

CG is part of the Darden chain - Olive Garden, Eddie V's & Seasons 52 to name a few.

Ok, to be honest my last two visits the food was just Ok. I went for lunch and had the shrimp and grits and I swear they forgot to season. Do better!

Celebrated our 43 wedding anniversary at the CG , food was great and the ambience fit the occasion, our reservation was early (5pm) , wasn't crowded and all servers were pleasant , they were not aware that it was a special occasion for my wife and I, but their attention (servers) to our needs made it a pleasant dinner

A great place to spend Valentine's Day! A vibrant bar scene ... always fun ... and a delicious meal in the upstairs restaurant! We also loved the Capital Grille surprises... roses for the ladies and chocolate covered strawberries for all. Well done!

The food was delicious. Our server, Gabriel was knowledgeable and kind. It did take a few minutes to be approached, but after we were the timing between visits to the table was reasonable. Tables are close, so you can overhear others' conversations which can be off-putting.

I had a NY strip steak and my wife had lamb chops. Both were superb; perfectly cooked, wonderful taste. I also had a Caesar salad, a baked potato side, and sorbet for dessert. My wife had a beet salad and sauteed spinach side. Every dish was excellent. We appreciated the friendly, attentive service, the warm and lively atmosphere, and the physical layout. All good about this restaurant. Not sure what to say about "value." It is a fairly expensive dinner, but definitely worth it!

A class restaurant. My steak came cooked a little different for what i ask for. The waiter came and asked if everything was OK. I told him what I thought and he offered to bring another one. I replied that there was no need. Later, the manager came to our table, apologized and informed me that they would not charge for the meal. That is what all restaurants should do but, unfortunately, that is not what happens. Therefore, I have to give my compliments to the Management Team of Capital Grille.

We had another excellent meal. The steaks and seafood were perfectly cooked and we loved the Au Gratin potato and Brussel Spouts sides. We will go back. We keep waiting for the burger and glass of wine special to reappear (from Oct-Nov 2017).
