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.

We chose the $20 lunch and were not disappointed. The food was delicious and portions adequate.
The restaurant gave us a complimentary wonderful dessert to mark the special occasion. There was some confusion on my part while using a gift card and my apologies to the friendly waitress. I will definitely return.

We came during Restaurant Week to enjoy this lovely restaurant. We took our 88 year old friend out for a nice lunch. We sat in the main dining room, which was light with lots of windows. Our waiter, Torin, was excellent! Two of our party had the special Restaurant Week menu, and our friend had the lobster salad. Torin brought out our soups, one Boston clam chowder, which was full of clams and very creamy. The other soup was the lobster bisque for an upcharge of $5. It was very creamy with lots of chunk lobster. Our waiter brought our friend a small cup of the clam chowder, which was on the house. What a great touch!
We each had the tenderloin salads and chocolate cake for dessert. The salads had a delicious dressing and lots of meat. The chocolate cake was similar to a fine chocolate cheesecake. So good!
Overall, 5 stars. Great food, great service, wonderful ambiance! Thank you Capital Grille!
