Family and friends came to celebrate my daughter's 26th birthday and it was absolutely spectacular! The Capital Grille in Chevy Chase did a marvelous job with our party seating and location. Our server Marquette was A-mazing, very knowledgeable and attentive to our needs. The food and drinks were excellent and the birthday dessert tray was the icing on the cake! Everyone had wonderful time and the birthday girl was very pleased!!!

Well earned 5 stars for food, service and ambience. One star less for value because, while $$ was expected, bill WAS stiff.
Low noise, particularly after asking for music to be turned down.
Superb high class restaurant!

The rack of lamb was way over cooked. Deserts were uninspired. Greeting at front desk was pretty tepid. We’re been there before and enjoyed. Maybe we just hit you on a bad night.

My wife and I had dinner at Capital Grill on Saturday evening to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. We arrived a bit early but they were able to seat us right away. The table was decked out with small hearts (a nice touch). The waiter was on the ball, knowledgeable and made great recommendations. Food was outstanding and timed perfectly. We continue to come back to Capital Grille Chevy Chase because the service and food are consistent time after time.

Great service at the start. Pretty bad by the end.

Soups were mediocre at best. These people need to taste clam chowder from Millie’s.

Very good bread. Nothing exceptional or bad about meat.

Lots of money. Very little value.

CG is always good with one exception and I let them know my thoughts on this particular item years ago. Their steak tartare is horrendous; it’s only resemblance to ST is the raw meat. I sent CG’s corporate HQ years ago an authentic French recipe to try and still nothing has changed.

Everything was great! But when ordering my wife's meal, our waiter suggested her to try the lobster without knowing it was going to be huge and without informing us on the price. Some waiters really just want to push and sell you more than what you're asking for. But overall everything was good, I just think the staff need to inform the guest the sizing and costs of what they are recommending.

We again enjoyed our experience at The Capital Grille. Excellent food and ambiance. We ordered a side of green beans and the server did not mention the salmon dish came on a bed of green beans. So we had more than enough green beans rather than being given the option of alternate side dish.

We are longtime repeat customers. Our table location was drafty to start off. Our waiter was young and probably very inexperienced. Our daughter's order was incorrect and she had to wait 15 minutes....with no compensation. Even Outback acknowledges a royal mess up with a comp meal. At $55 you would at least expect dessert? Took forever to get our son's Birthday treat. We were there for a happy occasion so we did not voice our complaints. Probably will go to The Prime Rib next time.....

This is the eighth time I’ve been here for lunch. The food is always good, the salmon yesterday was very good, though the portion was somewhat small. The side salad with mixed greens was also good. Getting a bit on the pricey side, $20 for my meal. Service is always great and they’re fresh made grapefruit soda was wonderful.

Thank you for your continued service and neighborhood excellence.
