We were greated right away to our reserved time, brought to our table. Restaurant very clean. Server was knowledgeable of the menu provided suggestions. We got the calamari as app, says for 2, but was plenty for a table of 4. 22 oz bone in ribeye and filet were cooked perfectly. They also sliced the meat which I personally enjoyed. Bathroon was clean and surrounding tables all looked to be enjoying themselves. 1 Sharable side is enough to split for a table of 4. We got asparagus and mushrooms. The mushrooms were dry but still tasted ok if paired with the steak.

Went for my birthday. Food was delicious. Service was top notch.

we checked in 15 minutes before our reservation. the hostess invited us to wait in the bar. We don’t drink so walked around the block.

They had checked us in so got a text about 11 minutes after check in.

Most entrees were priced $45.

i ordered the sea bass which was good but my husband chicken breast dinner was even more flavorful. Salads and Bread were awesome.

We are not big bread eaters but it was delicious. so we overstuffed ourselves before we got our salads.

Enjoyed our evening. Only annoying items were price of meal and noise level.

overall good experience

For my birthday they gave me a free birthday desert.

Thought the bone in krona steak was tough and was covered with a gravy.
Waiter was short to my guest. Don’t think we will return!

Today this Grille was bit off. ordered the surf and turf on the menu. Lobsters were tough and the meat over peppered.
did not make a fuss as my host was picking up the bill and i didn't want to make scene

service was off a bit. timing issues....sometimes too long before we were checked and sometimes to quick. best guess that some staff was inexperienced.

I dined at Capital Grill for my birthday. There was a birthday card and decorations on the table. All the staff wished me a happy birthday and were very attentive throughout my time at the restaurant. My complimentary birthday dessert was to die for. I ordered the boneless rib eye and Sam’s potatoes. Simply delicious. If you are looking for a dining experience I highly recommend The Capital Grill.

Bacon appetizer was 80% fat. Some may like it, I suppose. Medium rare steaks were a bit under cooked. Balsamic steak was so-so.
After waiting 20 minutes while seated, I had to finally ask a staff member if we could be served.
