Capital Grille is always a superb dining experience. This time we encounter a slightly unpleasant reception.

My experience was great until I made it home and my potatoes were not in the bag to accompany my lamb chops. My meal is incomplete and I’ve upset by this! I was really looking forward to continuing my meal. I don’t want to fully put this on TJ our server but I believe he should’ve checked our bag if he didn’t pack it to fulfill our full dining experience.

I guess it’s a mistake to go out on Thanksgiving. We are seated at the last table in a room off to the side of the bar. Obviously extra table set up for Thanksgiving. I’ve been here for many special occasions and have never been seated in this area. The turkey was not that great. Only one of our party had it but said the sides were not good. Six of us ordered off the main menu and everyone said the meal was very good. I will not do this again.

Our server was far and away the star of the show. He went out of his way to help the younger members of our group feel comfortable and made special dessert arrangements for the more senior diners. Such an upbeat attitude and exceptional menu knowledge as well. Our entire party would like to extend our gratitude. The food was of course outstanding and the cocktails were consistently made and well balanced. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

We were celebrating our Anniversary. From the very beginning, the staff made us feel welcome and truly made the evening more special. The Chef came to talk to us, the hostess decorated table with rose petals and our server gave my huge a great recommendation for his steak. The hospitality and food were great.

Capital Grill is hands down the best food, dining experience, everything! PERFECT!!! My husband has eaten in every upscale steakhouse across the country and Capital Grill is #1! TJ was great. As was Danny. Danny brought two glasses of champagne from our mutual friend in CA! What a lovely surprise! Then the dessert with cheesecake, flourless chocolate cake, and coconut cream pie, also from my friend in CA!!!! They coordinated the surprise effortlessly and we are so thankful!

Dinner for six, and had a wonderful dinner, noise level was rather too loud for us. The steaks were absolutely wonderful, sides were great(mashed potatoes, brussels sprouts, and mushrooms).

We had not been to The Capital Grille for a while - we had a wonderful experience! We were celebrating an anniversary which was acknowledged with their customary rose petals on the table and signed card by the staff. We were quickly and pleasantly greeted by our server, Jacob. All through our meal, he was very helpful and just the right amount of attentiveness during our meal. The cocktails were delicious and, of course, the wine list is extensive. The French onion soup and the beet salad were delicious. The breadbasket has a lovely selection of breads. We both ordered the filets-they were outstanding - flavorful and tender. Sides - au gratin potatoes and mushrooms - were perfect. We ordered the Crème Brulee for dessert was perfect.

Before we left, I told our server, Jacob, that the filet was heads above Gibson's. We don't eat filet/beef a lot, so when we do, we prefer to have it at a known steak house. The steak at Capital Grille was perfection!

Asked for a lot of recommendations - Our server, Kara, was extremely knowledgeable. She paired my seafood dinner with a delicious Chardonnay - which I typically don’t like, but she had me sample a couple and found the perfect one. Make sure to get Kara as your sever! She’s the best!

Retirement celebration with my wife after 36 years at Bell!. The restaurant provided a wonderful touch by displaying a congratulation card at our reserved table as well as a beautifully presented dessert plate after our dinner for my celebration.

Joe, our server was very attentive and ensured that our visit was wonderful. Kudos to The Capital Grille for having such customer focused staff.

We celebrated our kids’ recent accomplishments. They specifically chose Capital Grille as the place to celebrate. We all left very full and happy. TJ was a great waiter and we were very please with our overall experience.
