This is a wonderful restaurant. My Filet was a little overcooked, but I can look beyond that because everything else was perfect. Desserts were wonderful. Will go back !

We have a tradition of dining at Capital Grille every year for our daughter's birthday. The experience and the service never disappoint. Thank you once again for a wonderful evening!

The service was excellent but the food was mediocre at best. Overdone, flavorless steak and lobster tails as tough as my shoe. My wife's meal was just average. It was very expensive. If you want to spend money for excellent food, I would suggest Rioja, Elways, Rootdown, Guard and Grace, or Acorn. This was just a major disappointment and waste of money.

Our first time at The Capital Grille --certainly not our last time when we return to Denver. Very impressed with the menu and the quality of the food. The service was superb. I had a steak that was cooked to perfection. Had been recommended by a friend and certainly did not disappoint.

We had a party of ten, and they got us around a large round table, which was perfect. While there was background noise we could still hold a conversation among all of us. Food was superb. Wine list very extensive and expensive, but we did manage a lot of bottles of the semi-reasonably priced Berringer Cabernet.

We reserved a private room for 10. Although this represented a huge ticket for Capital Grille, the actual service we received was shabby. We had to make multiple requests for service, for instance when we wanted to order, when we wanted more wine, when we were ready for dessert, to get cream for our coffee, to get steak knives. Admittedly this was the night of the blizzard, but no excuse was offered by either the server or the management. My steak was adequate, although the shallot butter offered with it was not interesting. A very uninspired night, and a dinner that took 3.5 hours to complete.

This is our family favorite for every occasion. B provided perfect service and even remembered our daughter’s favorite dessert and delivered it with her birthday wishes. Every member of the team is welcoming and wonderful, and we appreciate the consistently outstanding service and great food and ambiance. Would recommend to anyone!!

Only issue distracting from an otherwise wonderful dinner was the time spent. It should not take 2 and a half hours to have dinner for 3.

The server was very rude and our Calamari was cold. The steak was fine but cooked under what we ordered. The creme brûlée has clearly been made in advance and was a disappointment. We expected more from one of our favorite restaurants.

The service was great from the time we parked with valet until the time we finished dinner. The hostesses were amazing. We received a complimentary drink for having to wait a few minutes for a table to be ready, which was not an inconvenience at all. Our waitress was very attentive and patient. She was very polite and went above and beyond for us. We were celebrating my husband’s birthday. Our waitress offered to take our picture when she noticed us taking a selfie. The food was very good and flavorful. The food was well plated, I even took a few pictures. We enjoyed our entire experience and will definitely dine here again.

Any day of the month is a good time to eat at Capital Grille, but even more fun with good friends during restaurant week. It is a special occasion place and witnessed the care they did for setting a perfect table for a couple celebrating their anniversary adorned with rose petals!

Our server was such a gracious host to our dining experience just as it has been all the other times we have eaten there. I can't recommend this go to restaurant enough, it is the place to go for a perfect steak in Downtown Denver.

We were a party of six. Three couples. Our weight person did not split the bill and just brought us one big bill. We asked her just put the bill and bring one for each couple. She probably should’ve guessed that that was going to happen. However, she had a very hard time doing it and the manager didn’t do anything to help her. He he just walked around seeming high and mighty. She was very flustered and was ignoring all of her other tables as she tried to get the bill worked out. We really thought the manager should’ve done more. It seems like he hung the waitress out to dry.

Went during Restaurant Week, so I think they may have been overwhelmed. When our glasses of wine were empty (one of which was the most expensive on the list), we were never asked if we wanted another glass. Our waiter rushed by us 3 times to fill our waters and multiple managers were walking the floor. Not the greatest of service experiences, especially after we were asked if we were celebrating something and we replied yes.

I called ahead of time to let the staff at Capital Grille know that we had a baby along with our party to account for the extra room. We had a 9 reservation and upon arrival the seating they had did not account for the baby. 30 mins later and a call to our sitter that would be late we got our table and you would have thought it would have been the original table with no space. We were crammed like sardines towards the back of the restaurant and was loud to the point where I could not hear the conversation of the company we came with.

I would say the food was good but I’ve had much better upscale steak experiences. And I was really looking forward to this meal as well.

Love and learn

We came on a crazy busy night, so the ambiance and noise wasn't ideal, but that was also our fault for choosing a last minute reservation on a Saturday night. Rob was fantastic! Food was great, and I am very impressed with the personal touch for our anniversary. My wife loved it and didn't expect it. Thanks!

Our waitress was great and the food came out at a good pace. I was a little disappointed in how tough my New York steak was. The flavor was great but it was unusually tough. The wife had a fillet and hers was great. Not sure if I’d go back because of the price and what i recieved.
