Amazing experience! I’m been a number of these across the country and this was my first time at this location. Amazing server named Paul and the food as always did not disappoint. I give this Capital Grill my highest possible recommendation.
You better ask what they believe is medium, medium plus and medium well done. It matters!
Great server, atmosphere and food
Great experience and excellent service but just super expensive for good food but not worth that amount of money.
Professional attentive staff! The food was great and the whole group was satisfied!
The host made us feel like regulars, as did our waiter Rich. The place is beautiful, busy but they don’t crowd you in like many restaurants in Chicago. The service, timing and food were all 10/10!
Lina was our waitress and was super. She was very friendly, polite, efficient, and knowledgeable about the menu and wine offerings.
The food was very good. We were in for the weekend and will definitely be back.
Thid place was absolutely amazing me and my date had a very good time great good solid service and atmosphere was off dazzling I def recommend to anyone looking to have nice night out
Great service from everybody!! Food was delicious and cooked to perfection! Always enjoy my time at that restaurant
Seated promptly, quick detailed service, food was excellent, no complaints at all.
Great restaurant. Always good
Food was delicious as always. Diego did an outstanding job with service. We were happy that our other favorite server, Scott, stopped by to say “hello.”
Very nice atmosphere. The food was delicious and the service was perfect. There were minor things about the food that I personally would change but nothing bad and nothing to keep me from coming back.
Excellent service and great food! Vibrant restaurant and very active bar.
We had a great meal and Jake served us at the bar which worked out awesome. Will soon return.
We have been coming to Capital Grille every New Years for about 10 years. However, this year we had to wait nearly an hour to be seated because they had massively overbooked. They kept insisting it wasn’t their fault but it was. MANY tables had nearly as long a wait . We had an 11:00 performance to make and wound up having to eat dinner in about an hour I am not sure we will be back again next year.
We waited a while but it was worth it for the amazing table and delicious food. Bar service and hostess were great, but waiter was very dismissive of us. We were a younger couple and it seemed like he did not really think tending to us was worth his time. He took our wine glasses without offering a drink menu, from which we did order, and brought us the bill when we had planned on ordering more. I think our experience was unique and if we had a different waiter we would definitely revisit.
It is always tricky to go to a restaurant on New Years Eve, but Capital Grill was spot on. We did need to wait a bit for our table, but that was understandable given the holiday and families that were lingering at their tables longer than planned. We shared the fried calamari which is spicy and comes as a large portion for sharing. My husband had the oysters - blue point - very large. I had a wedge with just the right amount of bacon and dressing - having some blue cheese chunks would add to the item. This went great with my dry martini. We both opted for steak and lobsters - as always, cooked to perfection. Sides of wild mushrooms (no garlic) and green beans finished off the plate. Strawberries and cream for dessert. Derrick was spot on attentive - which is saying alot because the restaurant was packed all night. We love Capital Grill in general and really love the Chicago location. You can have all of the other "pop-up" steak places that have come and gone in the city - this CG is consistently outstanding and not over priced.
always a great time
Consistently good service and food at all of the various locations we have dined at. We were there for NYE with our 3 year old daughter and our waiter made the evening.
Our waiter made our dining experience superb
Met friends for our Anniversary dinner. Food was incredible but waitress was not too attentive.
My Server Heather Was Amazing and So Funny. My Girlfriend and I Had an Amazing Time and The Food Was Amazing.
Dad daughter Dinner
Simply outstanding. Great for meat lovers. Amazing wine list and great ambiance
Always love Capital Grille and again they provide a truly great dining experience. Thank you!
Waitress was very rude.
Birthday dinner celebration
Great experience overall. I will be back.
This is one of my favorite steak houses in Chicago. The staff is top-notch, the food outstanding and the room beautiful. It’s expensive and worth every penny! Our waiter Paul was incredible!
Wonderful lunch. High quality food with a fabulous wait staff!
The Capitol Grille was an outstanding experience for our meal. The food was five star but what really put this dining experience in a class of its own was our server Diego who went above and beyond to make this one of the most wonderful and memorable experiences. We will definitely come back next time we are in Chicago.
Thank You Capitol Grille.
Just a holiday dinner out. Excellent service by Paul. Food and recommendations were excellent!
Had visited the CG in Charlotte and was beyond wowed! Was hoping for the same experience in Chicago. Walked out un-impressed. Food, cocktails and service were just average and mostly for the price. Disappointing for a downtown date night and surprising considering how much competition in the big city.
Very surprised that the service was below average. Our waiter seems a bit overwhelmed. Failed to bring the correct bowl of soup or steak knives. Very disappointed in the service.
Nice and fancy place for dinner with friends
Great service and food. Entire staff was great and food was fantastic
We had an expensive dinner there but it was wonderful! Salads, steaks, wine, and dessert! Staff was excellent!!!
