The Capital Grille has been one of my favorite places for special family dinners and important business meetings for over 15 years. Yesterday the service was very, very slow. My steak was undercooked, but it took 15 minutes for someone to come by and ask how the food was prepared. We brought it home and ate it here because it was better warmed up. The entrees, salads, wine and dessert were all good, but the service was constantly slow. It took 25 minutes to get an order placed for wine, 20 minutes longer to get our appetizers in and we had a question about the bisque that took two trips to the kitchen to get sorted. Also, I've been celiac for 10 years and most great steak houses have adapted their recipes to allow almost all recipes (steak preparations, desserts, the rue for soups) to be modified to enjoy the entire menu. The gluten free bread is not good, there is so much better on the market. The au poivre topping has gluten and the desserts are limited.

Honestly, I've never had this experience at The Capital Grille in Denver. I'd still recommend it as one of Denver's best, but I was underwhelmed and will be watching closely the next time we come in.

This was our first time there. We both enjoyed the food and service. A true pleasure and it helped to make a great evening. Much better food and service then places named after football players.

It was perfect. My wife and I had dinner here to celebrate her birthday - it was her first time going. The food was amazing, Matthew - our waiter - was friendly and attentive, giving great recommendations throughout the night. My wife loved the personalized birthday card that she received as well. Will definitely be returning again when we come back to Colorado

We had a great dinner. One of our steaks was over cooked but staff immediately made it right and offered us a redo. We had time constraints that made this impossibly they did comp the one meal. Love this location in Denver. We have been to the Seattle location twice and was very happy to see this restaurant in the area we were at in Denver.

I met a friend for dinner at Capital Grille after almost two years apart. We were seated in the smaller room on the Larimer St. side of the restaurant and had the room to ourselves, which was wonderful. We wanted to visit undisturbed, and that's what we got. Our server was wonderful and warm yet stayed away as much as possible. We both had the sea bass and it was out of this world good -- tender and moist with a perfect light sauce. It was a perfect night out.

After our first visit back since the pandemic started, Capital Grille’s reputation still holds true. The service, ambiance, courteous staff, and amazing food has not changed. Lived up to our expectations as it always does. Still our favorite steakhouse! The Porcini-rubbed dry aged bone-in ribeye was amazing as I remember. The sweetness of the balsamic mixed perfectly with the salty flavor of the perfectly seasoned ribeye. In addition, we also ordered the balsamic Brussels sprouts which were perfectly cooked, in addition to the garlic mashed potatoes.

The service was fantastic! Had Thanksgiving meal with some family - all ordered the traditional Turkey except I had steak au poivre. Everything was delicious from the lobster and crab cakes to the cheesecake! The staff kept things moving as we had a one year old with us! Wonderful way to spend a holiday!

A once or twice a year treat, The Capital Grill is one of the finest restaurants I've been able to enjoy. The restaurant is warm and inviting, the service is impeccable and the food...OMG.... THE FOOD. Please make sure you try it, you won't soon forget it.

Daniel has been our waiter a few times and he never let's us down. It's always personalized service and it's fantastic that he remembers our prior conversations and follow up on them. You have a great staff and we so appreciate the extra mile you and your staff are always willing to go. You're the best!!

Anniversary was not made special in any way. Server was brusque and lacked any warmth or personality. Steak was served lukewarm and no one checked whether the temperature was satisfactory. All in all, a very disappointing experience after having held our wedding rehearsal dinner event there 8 years ago.

Our service was great, as always. However, for some reason this time the food was not up to par. The salad was not great, no flavor at all to the dressing. We ordered asparagus and the scallop potatoes. The asparagus was fine, but the potatoes really had no flavor. We all enjoyed our steaks, they had the usual great flavor, but the salads and the potatoes were very disappointing on this visit. Hope is was just a bad night and things get better by our next visit.
