    I’ve said it 100 times, this is my favorite restaurant in the universe. These people make me feel like family; and while The Capital Grille model is outstanding… This particular restaurant and the people that service their customers here are just incredible.

    This was my first time at Capital Grille to celebrate my birthday, and I couldn't have asked for a better place. The food was fabulous. The atmosphere was classy, but not stuffy. And the star of the show was our server Blake. She was absolutely delightful.

    I was early for my reservation but was seated immediately. Nice touch. My server, Blake, was prompt but not hovering. I love the bread basket and that the butter is spreadable, not frozen nor mushy. The oysters were well plated and I was able to get additional sauce quickly. The sliced tenderloin came perfectly prepared; at the right color and melted in my mouth. Varied mushrooms cooked well and tasty. My only caveat was the asparagus. Somehow it lost any flavor and because of the uneven thickness of the stalks uneven degrees of cooking. Lastly the coffee came lukewarm; not hot. Blake was able to get me another cup shortly. No one’s perfect and Sunday night may not be the best time for a staff but I still like Capital Grill for great meals and great service.

    Kelly was extremely exceptional and punctual with her service. I ordered lamb half well half medium and it was exquisite. The ambiance was beautiful and it was a bit noisy but it was just others enjoying and having a great time. I love this one better than the one in Missouri. I would definitely recommend and I will be back.

    Great dinner out as a family. They tolerated our 17 month old with no questions asked (he was very well behaved except for a few stray pieces of food dropped over the high chair). Our server, Kelly, was very professional and welcoming. The food as well excellent, like usual. Apps were spaced accordingly.. tuna tartare was excellent. The hardwood Bacon also. The filet medallions medium and my NY strip, rare, both as ordered. An excellent evening out, all around.

    My wife and I celebrated her birthday at the Capital Grille. We were seated in a window booth. We ordered cocktails which were delicious. We also ordered the "Generous Pour" a wine pairing of 6 wines served throughout dinner. Complimentary additional servings were offered for wine especially liked. We had the chilled seafood platter which was excellent, enough for four people. We also had an order of calamari which is served with vegetables and peppers, similar to a giardiniera. We followed that with a split wedge salad which was plenty for two people. We then had two steak dinners which were of outstanding quality. The evening finished with a complimentary dessert platter and two complimentary glasses of champagne. Service was great. Attentive but not rushed. The timing of the courses were perfect. The dinner took almost three hours and we never felt hurried. What a great experience! We highly recommend the Capital Grille.
