We have been to Capital Grill many times. We always know we’re getting consistent meals and family is normally always happy. Today was the first time we had an issue with my husbands meal . The manager was fantastic , It wasn’t my husbands night because his steak came out raw on the 3 rd attempt. The manager and server could not been nicer to our family, as always consistent service. All in all we left happy and will be back!!

Our waiter Jason was amazing. He really turned the evening around for us. The hostess station was not friendly at all. We waited 45 minutes for our table. No one came over to acknowledge us. However, others were acknowledged for their time in waiting.

This was the first time we dined at The Capital Grille for Thanksgiving and it was fabulous!! From beginning to end, everything was top notch. The martinis were spot on. The lump crab appetizer was nice and plump and very sweet. We had the traditional Thanksgiving dinner that was offered and it was absolutely delicious. The turkey was super tender and moist and all the trimmings were exquisite. Chef Marc G. never disappoints!!

Always our go to restaurant when we’re in Fort Lauderdale. Our server Dowan was excellent. He was efficient, funny and a pleasure to chat with. We wouldn’t expect anything less from The Capital Grill!.

I had chosen Capital for our occasion. we had 3 people celebrating a birthday in our party. I have eaten at Capital Grill many times in the past. This was my last time. the server we had was extremely slow and seamed like he didn't care about us at all. I could go on and on but I doubt anyone would want to do anything for a past customer. Not very proffecinial way to treat people. it felt like no one cared about a customer.

We went to celebrate my husband birthday. From the moment we walked through the door everything was perfect! We were seated right away since we had a reservation. Our server Stan was attentive and very knowledgeable. We shared the bacon appetizer That neither of us had ever had and it did not disappoint. My husband got a bone in New York strip steak and I got lthe tenderloin with lobster tails. Both meals were amazing. The steaks were cooked perfectly and very tender. We will definitely be going back!

We chose to go with our neighbors to enjoy an evening out and this is right around the corner from my house. With a reservation we received a middle of the room table. There is no ambiance or intimacy at these tables so avoid them if possible. The service was minimal. Our waitress was frequently missing for long periods of time. I believe everyone else's meal was cooked properly, but both my steak and lobster were very overdone. They remedied swiftly, but then brought my lobster underdone in the rush. I just wound up giving up and taking my meal home. I was completely unimpressed, and we dine out 3-4 times a week. There are better options in Fort Lauderdale. Even the errors did not make the service improve. It is a shame when staff stop caring.

Food was good. Not a great memorable meal as steak is steak in my opinion. Waiter was hard to understand and first the wrong salad came out. Then the correct salad but with one of the main items that was in the salad was missing. For the price you pay and the service that was received I would just as easily go back to JMarks instead

There was a large, loud table of people over served and out of control . They were whistling, cat calling and shouting . They ruined the experience for all the diners in the room . The manager needed to deal with them and delayed doing so , finally asking them to control themselves but it was too late overall . This is not the experience I wish to have when dining at a Capital Grill !

We had a terrific waiter, Ricardo, who made the visit very enjoyable. There was a nice note regarding one of our guest’s birthday and confetti on the table which made it very festive. In addition they brought a nice dessert for him. Our seared tuna was quite good, but the chicken dish was dry and not very tasty, and the steak was small. The steak had nothing but steak because as you know everything is à la carte. But for $50+ I thought it was pretty meager. I don’t think we will go to capital Grille anytime soon. We spent over $300 for four people and only had three glasses of wine And a disappointing dinner. If it wasn’t for Ricardo, I would’ve thought it was a bit of a waste.

The food is getting worse, the filet mignon we have had to return 3 th time including last dinner..
I ordered medium well, got medium rare , my friends ordered medium and got medium well..the filet mignon was again to fat.
We are regular guest since 15 years, moved here from Dallas and visiting Capital Grille Fort Lauderdale minimum 5-7 times a month.
The Servis since last month is also getting worse .( except Josh at the bar area)
We are very disappointed about Capital Grille Fort Lauderdale.
We will try it one more time and if we will get the some experience , we will definitely go in different place and you will loose the customers they were visiting Capital Grille for so many yers.
Yesterday we went to Grille 66 and the service was professional and food much better.
Sorry
Best regards

Do I really need to say anything?
It was amazing as it always is. Though I still wish sometimes that they had a baked potato avail, you totally forget about when you taste your meal. Service is always amazing
