My girlfriend and I went for a date and we had the pleasure of Sheila taking care of us. She was so attentive and had some excellent suggestions. The food and ambiance was amazing. Everything was perfect. I let her know before hand I was trying to surprise my girlfriend and propose after dinner. She told my girlfriend there was a violinist outside. So we went outside and my violinist was playing our song and I proposed. It all went so amazingly. We will definitely be coming back. Sheila made our night perfect. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Went as a party of four to celebrate daughter's 30th birthday and the staff had decorated the table which was really thoughtful. Sommelier explained they were out of the magnum of pinot noir that we wanted so he recommended a similar wine and gave us a deal on two bottles. Our waiter Corey was very pleasant and knowledgeable and helped us select our entries which we all loved. The food and service was excellent - totally made my daughter birthday celebration! Thank you!

The food was bland - had no flavor - very pedestrian for a high-end steak house. The service was mediocre at best. The atmosphere is outdated. Dallas has a lot of great restaurants - this isn't one of them!

My husband and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary this past Saturday at Capital Grille and our experience could not have been better! We absolutely love Capital Grille but it was our first time to this specific location. The service, food and surprise anniversary dessert was absolutely incredible. Love this restaurant! Highly suggest the scallops, lobster mac n cheese and the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella!

Sheila was our hostess while she was very charming, her attention to detail lacked significantly. She was reminded 4 times to get us bread, and she did bring it out on the 4th time. Jalepaneos were requested in a chicken dish, none came but when she and other servers were reminded. By then meal was cold and almost done with. My my strip came out like a rubber and chewy, which after a half hour wait was replaced, with filet minion but by then I filled
Myself up with sides. Talking of sides the Mac and cheese has been my fav it was dry and when mentioned to the staff they said they would take care of it; we duly paid for the item. There was just smile from our serve with zero service, she needed to be constantly reminded. Poor experience been to several capital grills - dallas location in particular was no where near to the mark!! I would have to reconsider giving there gift cards to my clients which I do most during Christmas.

Capital Grille exceeded my expectations once again and made a 25th birthday celebration extra special.

I ordered the salmon but included a special request to simply grill the fish and ensure it was cooked all the way through. My server personally spoke to the chef to ensure it was prepared to my liking. It was perfect!
I also noticed how well the entire staff worked together. There was a lg private party next to me and I watched how various members of the wait staff, including those assigned to other stations, stepped in to help. I even had other waiters stop at my table to refill water and take our coffee order. It's clear the culture of teamwork and quality starts at the top at this restaurant.

I look forward to returning again soon. Thank you for a lovely evening and a dinner we are still talking about!

We called ahead making sure lunch is still served since we will be arriving near the lunch cut off time. The lady who answered the phone confirmed yes. When we arrived we were given a lunch menu to start with, but the time for us to order we got handed with a dinner menu saying that lunch no longer being served. We left restaurant and felt we had been treated badly. This is our first time in Dallas downtown location and flet the place is not organized. We are the usual customer in Plano location, where the services are always excellent.

Long time customer, but this visit, (with two friends who have eaten here with me before) we were all disappointed with the food quality. We didn't say anything at the time because we didn't want the others to think we were just complaining. Sorry, our fault, we should have.
Initial service good as usual, however next to no follow up. One of my quest need a refill on his coffee, ask a wait staff member, was told he'd take care of it, but didn't. The manager stopped by, ask how everything was going, asked again about the coffee refill, he said he'd take care of it, but again he didn't and he didn't come back. Finally, we stopped a waiter (not ours) and made the same request and he finally brought out a fresh cup. our primary server was very busy with other tables. Anyway, that's my review.

A few days before I had called to get a wine list. If you download their app you can get a general wine list. Although, when I called Michael the Sommelier jumped on the phone and we talked for about 10 minutes.

When I showed up he had several wine choices already prepared for me. He picked an incredible 2013 Red Zinfandel from Valdez Family vineyard. It was perfect and one of the best Red Zinfandel’s I’ve ever had. Bravo!!

Additionally, he picked out the perfect Moscato for my date.
I’m not a Moscato fan but I did drink a half glass of this wine. It was certainly sweet with some floral tones. It was awesome.

Our waitress was Claire. She was very professional and the service was perfect. We tried the steak tartare and calamari to start and both were fantastic. We both had steaks (and my date had lobster too). We also had the Lobster Mac & Cheese, mushrooms and creamed spinach. Everything was great but I think the creamed spinach had too much nutmeg (in my opinion).

For desert I had the creme brûlée and my date had coconut pie or something like that. Michael brought over some port wines to try that were very good.
Overall I give the experience a 5++ out of 5. Just having the relationship with Michael the Sommelier was worth the trip.
I’ll return to Capital Grille. It was a fantastic experience.

Overall this was a wonderful experience and would highly recommend. We are from NY and eat out a lot. The food was full of flavor (brussel sprouts are a must for a side!) and the portions were perfect -- not too small (which many higher end restaurants do to make a statement??) but not supersized. From appetizers to main's to the special birthday dessert for our daughter -- all were 10 out of 10! The only disappointment we had and the reason for the low score on "service" was due to the table we received from our early reservation. It was a 6 p.m. reservation and clearly the restaurant was not sold out of seating. We were seated for a disclosed special birthday celebration right at the entrance from one of their rooms to another -- where wait staff stood and clearly a lot of wait staff traffic in and out to serve diners. This was unacceptable especially when there were plenty of tables vacant. We asked to be seated at a better table and the wait staff advised "they had to ask"... we sat seated, looking at many empty tables (which were still empty for the most part by the time we left -- the original table we were seated at was absolutely empty the entire time). We were accommodated but that left "bad taste" for us. I would go back but I would advise, more specifically where I wanted to be seated. One has to question if this was due to reserving via Open Table??? not sure??

My husband and I were extremely disappointed with this dinner. Capital Grille is typically our favorite steak house in Dallas, and in Fort Worth. Our experience this past Thursday evening, however, was extraordinarily poor. Our waitperson apparently wrote down the wrong entree for my husband (steak instead of salmon), so when a server delivered our orders, we told him one was incorrect. He placed mine before me and disappeared with the incorrect dinner for my husband; we assumed he just picked up the wrong plate and would immediately return with the salmon. I started in on my dinner at my husband's behest, never knowing that the kitchen had not even started to cook the salmon dish! I was finished with my entree by the time our server brought my husband's salmon. No one came near our table to explain what was going on. We couldn't even get someone's attention. The restaurant manager never visited our table, and that is the first time we have been to Capital Grille and not had a visit. Our server, a petite woman with glasses, did not apologize, only said it was her error when we actually had to ask what happened. She did not give us her business card, as is typical for the wait staff to place in the folder with our bill. And, neither did the manager, because he never came to our table. You would think they would have been most apologetic!! I waited to send this review, because Capital Grille typically sends me a review request a day or two after our dinner that goes directly to their restaurant. To date, we have not received one. What the heck is going on at Capital Grille Uptown?

We had a lovely table in a quiet area and an awesome meal. I always love the Kona Crusted steaks. I sure wish that the Wedge Salad was served with Blue Cheese dressing here in Dallas, as it is in Colorado, Chicago and New York. I don't care for the ranch dressing on the wedge salads here in Texas.
