Incredible personalized service for a birthday. As good as I’ve seen. Took my daughter in the kitchen to “make” dessert. Personal congratulations from the entire staff. And perfect food and service. This place is a winner.

We had the best dinner there for our anniversary! The food and wine were fantastic and the service was exceptional. We don’t live super close to this restaurant so we find ourselves going to places closer but we are going to change that. I highly recommend capital grille 👍🏻👍🏻

Food was great, but it was so cold in the dinning room everyone ate with their coats on. We asked our server to adjust it, but too little too late. The room was loud which made conversation difficult.

Celebrated my cousin’s 50th Birthday. Our server Nico was most pleasant, patient and accommodating with our party. The manager was equally as friendly and willing to serve. I hadn’t been here in a few years, but they seemed to have gotten much better with the service. They even customized a dessert tray for our table for the occasion- nice touch. The food was good but I was a little disappointed in The oysters. They were extremely small, not the Blue Point oysters I am used to having at other restaurants. But overall, We truly had a great time.

I haven't been to Capital Grille in a few years. I was looking for a nice place to celebrate our anniversary and for some reason the Capital Grille came into my mind. Anyway, it was fantastic. The service was excellent and the food was outstanding. I had the Lamb an it was cooked exactly the way I ordered it. The added touches really made it special. There was a card at our table wishing us Happy Anniversary along with rose petals. Very classy! It was just a very special evening. I can't wait to get back there. A good friend called us on our way home to wish us Happy Anniversary and I ended up telling him how great it was. I think I am going to mark it now as my special celebration spot, although I won't restrict it to just those events.

I had the scallops and they were placed in what turned into the consistency of cereal. This is my third try and I said I wouldn't be back after my first visit. The Second time was better but my last visit confirmed... this place just doesn't work for me.

Plus - was able to get a last minute reservation - service was good and attentive
Negatives - ribeye should be a bit smaller 22oz is huge - lobster addition at $33 isn’t a good deal would recommend to not go for this upgrade

We have been coming to capita grille since it opened and the food has consistently been good... the ambiance in the last several years has not because the place is never full except for a rare Friday or Saturday night... this last experience left a lot to be desired... all of the food my wife and I ordered was not prepared properly and had no flavor... my medium steak was totally well done all gray and dry... it had no salt or pepper tasted of shoe leather... my wife’s butter poached lobster was stone cold... the calamari with peppers which is my favorite appetizer was greasy and lifeless... the lobster bisque my wife got was literally disgusting!!! The crab cake was not impressive and worst of all the coconut cream pie which is the the entire reason we come because it’s fantastic was so old and stale it made us angry! No one goes to capital grille anymore with so much competition in the area and for them to no miss the ball across the board food wise ensures we will never go back!

I love this place. I went there to celebrate my husband’s b-day and everything was great. I had called a couple of times ahead to make sure they had the champagne set-up at the table ahead of time and they forgot so was a little disappointed. Other than that food and service was great!

Excellent Food. Excellent Service. Great spot for a date night. If possible, go early. We got there at 5 because we had a 7PM movie. There was almost no one else dining. We got in before the businessmen and their meetings, the large party celebrations, and the busy time. We saw the most adorable older couple celebrate together. Everything was relaxed and elegant. A wonderful restaurant no matter the time of day. A great date spot, especially if you can get their early.
