The food and service was spectacular as usual. I took my 13 year old granddaughter to dinner before the Cirque du Soleil performance; she was awestruck. Our waiter, John, was wonderful. I didn't even look at the menu as I knew what I wanted, and he brought it to me! Same for my granddaughter. We had so much fun.

Waitress was great. We were in a hurry because we had theater tickets, and she rushed to get our food out quickly. Very nice.

Very attentive and friendly staff. 7 wine flight consisted of very good wines and was reasonably priced. Lobster/cake cakes were fantastic. Pocini rubbed bone-in ribeye was correctly cooked and tasted great. Sliced filet mignon was very tender. Overall experience was great!

I was shocked at how the wine lists were presented as the price points were misleading with no $$ signs next to the number. Because of how high the numbers were I didn't think I had to confirm the numbers were NOT the prices. I was shocked when we got the bill that 2 1.5 liters of wine was $1100. It was a client dinner and I didn't want to make a scene as in the end I should have asked. I also didn't like that all of the wine is served in 1.5 liter carafes. How do I know I am getting what I ordered? And then to pay that amount. I know that Capital Grille is a high end restaurant and I have eaten here many times. But this averaged to about $250 a bottle for a red blend and no one walked away from the dinner saying "wow, that was some unbelievable wine".

Loud environment, filet was dry with no flavor and bacon in Brussels was so over cooked I couldn’t bite through it. Had to pour own wine 3 different times because wife’s glass was empty for 20+ minutes at a time.

I’ll be back for apps and wine / cocktails, but never dinner (especially steak). Lobster was very good though.

My friend ordered the looypop lamb. One of the ribs with meat was raw. She asked them to cook it to medium and she would take home. They burnt it. She did not realize until she got home.

My boyfriend and I made a reservation to celebrate our anniversary and his birthday here. We were lucky to have Stephanie Valencia take care of us this night, she was outstanding and made sure we were very well taken care of! The food was delicious and portions were also not too overbearing. We will definitely be returning to see Stephanie for another celebration or just for a romantic night out, thank you Stephanie and everyone who attended to us!

WE were celebrating our 35th anniversary and from the moment we walked in until our last bite of the chocolate lava cake, the experience was off the chart!! Mark, our server was outstanding and his suggestions from appetizer to main course were spot on! Lobster bisque was the soup special and that was a meal in itself! Tons of whole lobster claws with a hint of sherry started our food journey off right!! My wife had the pear/gorgonzola salad that was outstanding.
Entrees were even better!! Filet medallions with lobster tails and seasoned ribeye with balsamic reduction were cooked to perfection and the side of potatoes au gratin were one of a kind.
This will be our new anniversary destination for years to come in the hope Mark is still employed he will be asked for.

The Capital Grille was a great place for a romantic dinner. The atmosphere was a mixture of busy, cozy, and fancy. For two people we came out to $200 (before tip) which included each of us having a drink and a dessert to share. Our host (Bill S.) was very attentive without making us feel rushed.

The quality of food was right for the price as you won't walk away disappointed. The portions were perfect (we actually took some food home) including the dessert which two people can easily share. Thank you for a great night out!

The dinner we had The Capital Grille in Denver on Sunday evening, July 28, 2019, was just as we expected it - EXCELLENT. My wife and I have celebrated our anniversary dinner at Capital Grille for the past 10 years. We were first introduced to Capital Grille in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where we celebrated our anniversary there many years ago. We make it a point to celebrate our anniversary with a dinner at the Capital Grille whether or not it is on the actual anniversary date or not. We just love to know that Capital Grille was the place we had dinner to celebrate our anniversary.

We also recommend the Capital Grille to friends and business associates because we know they will have an experience of fine dinning they will never forget.

Our host, Shawn, was great; cordial and very professional and, also the other assistance that greeted and assisted us as well.

Again, thank you for the making us feel at home to a wonderful 43rd wedding anniversary dinner.

Sincerely,
Andrew and Gena Cobb

We typically go for special occasions. The ambiance has gone purely corporate, catering to the business people. The flare of quality dining here has kind of lost its luster. The waitress was so busy eyeing her tables that we didn’t feel like she was giving us much attention at all. Too bad, we’ll have to explore other options...

Our server was amazing and they put us in a back very quiet room for our anniversary. Waiter was very attentive to my allergy needs and worked with Chef to create a great meal. Husband's steak was more rare than he had requested, but we didn't ask to have it re-done. Overall a great evening. Super for a special night out.

Capital Grille is usually outstanding.

I agreed to be seated in the bar area since we were having a late lunch (3pm) and the bar was pretty empty. The service started out well, but declined over time. Normally for lunch it we can have a nice paced lunch (not too fast, not too slow ) and still be finished in an hour. We were there for two hours and had 1 drink refill.

I love Capital Grille and will return, but will not sit in the bar area in the future.

Also- my guest was disappointed with her crab legs. What she was served were much smaller than typical with not much crab meat and her meal didn't come with any side dishes which is not normal.

We dined here for my boyfriends birthday. We had an 8:15 reservation but were not seated at our table until 9pm. The manager was very nice and gave us complimentary drinks and apologized for this profusely. The food was most definitely worth the wait. Michelle was our waitress and she was awesome.

We've eaten here twice, ordered entirely different things each time, and everything has been absolutely ace. It's expensive, but as a 'Special Occasion' place, I cannot recommend it highly enough.
