My husband's birthday was over the weekend. We're so happy we chose Capital Grille. We always have a good meal there. Starting with a Stoli Doley in the bar (delicious pineapple soaked vodka martini) we then moved to our table. What a nice surprise to see confetti & a card from the staff! A complimentary champagne toast while we made our menu choices. Great service from Rich, our waiter for our spicy calamari, shrimp cocktail, steaks, mashed, creamed spinach. Every bite was delicious! Then a surprise dessert with candle! So many nice touches to make for a special night.

My wife and I came here for my birthday. The food was incredible, which is what you’d expect from a Capital Grille. But what most stood out was the absolutely friendly, warm, and excellent service - from Julia behind the bar to Diego our waiter. They were both so personable and friendly and made our evening that much more enjoyable. And the Capital Grille even made a nice little celebration out of my birthday with some table decorations and special note and desert from the chef. They didn’t draw obnoxious attention to it, either - it was just the right amount. People make all the difference in a business, and birthday or not, it was easy to see that the people who took care of us genuinely know what it means to provide excellent and welcoming service. Top notch.

The maitre d was awful. When we walked i they said the wait was 1.5 to 2 hours. Checked on open table and there were tables every 15 minutes all night. Made the reservation and asked why this could have happened... they said “oh “open table” puts you in the overflow room... it’s not as nice...” they were wrong the founders room or whatever they called it, was romantic, warm and quiet.

Aaron, our server was great.

I will not go back and do not recommend because of the front staff. Go to Chicago Cut instead. Better value and better steaks.

The was a return trip to THE GRILL.
We selected from the National Restaurant Week menu.

The seat adjacent to the bar provide a wonderful view to east, west, south, and east. It was look being in the four corners.

The staff leaning on the wall making the picture frame crooked and using the wall to check on table was light entertainment .
The wedge salad ,tomatoes , with bacon, and top with chunky blue cheese dressing was very good. We as that the keep the bacon and place ranch dressing on Roc on the side. We both required additional dressing .

The main course was salmon seared and finished in oven at very high temperature. The mash potatoes were the equal last weeks meal . The string beans were tasty.

The crème brûlée with various berries was to small for serving and you needed another course, you wanted more.
