Our waitress was amazing and the wine was delicious but my scallops came out cold and my husband’s steak was just ok, not as good as I would have expected from the price tag.

We went for Mother’s Day, and it was fantastic. The service was great, the food was prepared perfectly and everything was delicious.
I was worried it might be a little too fancy for what we wanted, but it was great and the atmosphere of the whole restaurant was very nice.
We will definitely be back!

I made reservation on Friday May 3rd for a party of 8 on Tuesday May 7th at 6:30pm. That all went very well and easy. My party all arrived right at or just before 6:30. We all pretty much ordered a steak of some kind along with sides we all decided to share. We did not order starters. So far all was going very well, drinks were served right away and we were all having a great time. Things were good until I decided to look up at the clock and it was now 8:00pm and we still didn’t have any food! I was about to say something when finally the food was served at about 8:15. We all began to eat when my wife noticed that her medium rare ordered filet was more like well done. Not even a hint of pink! Let the server know and they got a new one out right away! That was good and her steak was cooked properly this time. I however was starting to eat my $85.00 Wygu New York strip at about this time and quickly realized that it was as tough as a boot! It appeared to be cooked Medium as I asked but the steak was extremely tough for a Wagyu steak! I have been to several steak houses and have had plenty of Wagyu beef before but it would always melt in my mouth even when cooked medium. Do to the steak being $85.00 And the fact we already sent my wife’s steak back I decided to eat it so as not to not make more of a scene and also to the fact I wasn’t sure they would be able to cook another one better than this one I had in front of me. All and all the night was good as far as the company, drinks and sides were concerned but for the steaks not so much!

We had originally booked at The Palm for our anniversary dinner. Then I read reviews, many of which were quite negative. I cancelled and booked at the Capital Grill. Best dining experience we have had in a long time. Noise level is low compared to most places these days. When we were seated, our table was adorned with rose petals and glittery stars. Our server, Shirley, was terrific. Unobtrusive but right there at the right time. Our meals were excellent, perfectly prepared and presented. Our complementary desert was “over the top” !
Our new “go to” restaurant for fine dining!

Myself and three others came to Capital Grille to celebrate a birthday on a Saturday night. Our reservations were at 8pm. The valet was great. We did not have to wait very long before they seated us. Our waiter, Matt gets 5+ stars. He was the best part of the experience. He is very knowledgeable in wines and the menu. He has a great sense of humor and went out of his way to make sure the birthday girl had a wonderful experience. I wish mat could have controlled the quality of the food. We ordered the salmon, sea bass and chicken. The salmon and sea bass were forgettable (bland and a little dry). There was absolutely nothing special about those (overpriced bland food). The chicken was actually very good. If you can't get chicken right, you shouldn't be in business. We also ordered a wedge salad and field greens salad. Those were delicious. Sam's mashed potatoes are also very delicious. Matt helped us select a bottle of wine. It was an awesome Cabernet ($100). Matt also took it upon himself to get multiple desserts for the birthday celebration (Great job, Matt).

Capital Grille needs to update its decor. We all commented on how it appeared so old and out of place (mounted deer heads and obscure portraits); just like the waiter's jackets.

The service top notch at this restaurant thanks to Matt. The food...not so much. Dinner for 4 with tip, wine and desserts...over $450. You decide.

We celebrated our daughter's birthday on Saturday with dinner and a show (Cats). Dinner was excellent - the steak was still sizzling as it reached the table. The drinks were strong and tasty. And the dessert - wow! Our server made sure we were out in plenty of time to get to the show. If you are looking for an upscale steak restaurant, I highly recommend The Capital Grille.

Truly wonderful time. We were having a very important business meeting and our waitress was very in tune with when to approach our table and when to let us talk.

The management and staff was very aware of us at all times and quick to meet any need.

When we are in the mood for a great steak, the Capital Grille does not disappoint. We especially enjoy the Courvoisier cream sauce that we have with our fillets. Their wine list has something for everyone, at a variety of price points. Of course, no visit is complete without their au gratin potatoes. I have been a faithful Capital customer for about 20 years now, and am so glad that they always get it right.
