The waiter was terrific, very attentive and helpful. The food was good but not as good as one would expect for the price. The noise level is very high and one has to speak louder than normal to be heard which only increases the noise level. Overall I would say the experience is what I expected.

I have had the pleasure of dining at the Capital grille in Chevy Chase often. Our meal earlier this week was attended to by James, who was spectacular. The food is always top notch. Kudos to the restaurant team.

We tend to stay for a while (usually about 3.5 hours) when we dine there, which is wonderful. The parking validation is good for 3 hours, so we end up paying for the extra 1/2 hour. It would be nice if you could validate for 4 hours for folks who have stayed longer. Other than that, we had a fantastic time, as always!

We love Cap Grille and took friends this time.....server was new and not very good.......she only took drink orders for two out of the four of us (the men)........when she finally came back with the two drinks, we asked her to take orders for the other two (the women)........our friends kept telling her that they could NOT have garlic........they were not happy when their garlicy steaks arrived.........the meal for two of us was fine but I doubt if our friends will go back........too bad.

This was our second experience this year with poor service at dinner.......best to go for lunch.

It’s like a grand central station. Given the prices one would expect it would be less noisy and more classy. The steaks are excellent and so is service.

Overall food ok for price. My medium porterhouse was cold inside - was sent back to kitchen. Came out back with the same steak being well done and rubbery. Steak was returned- a new less marbled steak came out much later when others where finishing desert - very bad experience. Eat half of the steak - low quality.

We came to celebrate our daughter’s birthday. Our table was very close to a very annoying neighboring table. (Loud and lots of drinking). They sent a dish back to the kitchen and got free drinks, free desert and a visit from the manager. We were totally ignored. Our food was delicious but we won’t come again. It was way too loud and we felt like the country bumpkins.

My wife and I dined here for our date night. I made a 6:30pm reservation but unfortunately we ran late. We didn’t show up until 7. The hostess was still able to seat us but because we were late the table she gave us was in a rather awkward spot in the restaurant. We asked her if she could find us another table. We were willing to wait to be seated. She told us that wouldn’t be necessary and she promptly got us seated in a very nice booth. We have been here before, the dinner and service was fabulous as expected. We enjoyed the evening and are very happy. Thanks again for a wonderful night out!

As always the lobster bisque was amazing, really enjoyed the American 'kobe' beef with African lobster, and loved the prosciutto and mozzarella. I usually hate cooked prosciutto but you guys have made me change my mind. We were really touched with the desert sampler congratulating our little milestone. The extra touches are what makes you guys the best.

I had a business lunch in the bar. Ashley was very attentive and very good at recommending food. We got the burger wine special. They were excellent. But, i ordered mine medium. It came out well. However the manager promptly got me a new one (i requested medium rare this time) it was perfectly cooked. Manger competed the burger. I have frequent business lunches at capital grill and will continue to do so.
