We had a very bad experience tonight. I decided to not complain as we were with older friends and they would have been uncomfortable. Our waiter was not into working and that came across immediately. By accident my husband spilled water and they did us a favor by cleaning it up slowly.

At that point before our guests arrived we should have called them and left. Waiter was plain horrible for a top level restaurant. The people across from us as we are outside asked for the heater to be on. It was pointed at our table not there's. I asked extremely politely to close it off, again no movement till my husband asked the busboy. Who puts on heat when it's 78 degrees. Food came cold, steak was not Pittsburgh. Lobster tails were cold and special of the night was sold out at 7:50 on a Saturday night. This was very disappointing. We are generous tippers. I whispered to my husband... don't give him an nice tip he ruined the night.

I have no plans on returning and we are local residents and felt this was very inferior. My next comment is going on yelp.

We left and had dessert at home. I am happy about that.

It was our first time here and we celebrated our anniversary. Our table was sprinkled with anniversary confetti which was a nice start, the drinks were delicious and the chef himself brought out our dinner. The food was incredible, to end the night they gave us an anniversary dessert and to me a single red rose. This was such a perfect night.

I usually give this place the highest marks possible, but.....this is the second issue we’ve had, consecutively. This time, our leftovers were thrown out. I purposely only ate a few bites of my 10oz rare fillet so I could bring the rest home for breakfast. They apologized for throwing it out, and replaced with 3 oz of well done fillet....missing grilled onions on top. Major major disappointment. They also gave my father one lamb chop to take home of the 3 that he was bringing home. Plus the sides came out wrong. I guess I usually expect perfection there, bc that’s what they usually deliver. Won’t be returning. Too many better steakhouses first that price point.

You are only as good as your last meal in this business and based on our experience normally we would not return. However, since we frequently dine at Capital, we may give it one more shot. During our last couple of visits we were seated in the room sharing the wall with Blue Martini next door (in fairness they offered to reseat us if we were willing to further wait for a party to finish which was estimated at 30 minutes +/-).If you like the sound of pounding bass during you dining experience this is the room for you. Although our servers were extremely nice, the service was very slow. The shrimp cocktail was not fresh and the crab cocktail was dry and we actually had to return it. Sadly, this steakhouse was out of baked potatoes which They informed us of as they were delivering the meal and the third time this has occurred at this restaurant. Steaks were undercooked which they partially corrected (one returned still undercooked) and by the time we got them back the rest of the food was cold and half our party finished the meal. Based on our last few visits, the overall experience seems to unfortunately be headed south.

For the price range I expect exceptional service. Table was missing a bread plate that never made it after several requests. Second beer was served in an under sized water glass. Asparagus was not properly trimmed. Service felt rushed.

We had a 7 pm reservation and did not get seated until 7:39. We sat at the bar and had a drink. Once we were seated Our server Charles was excellent. He gave us great service with fun and really made our dinner fantastic.

The only think they could have done better was to offer a free drink or dessert for the long wait for our table. It was definitely a nice touch to give everyone New Years hats and noisemakers.

This time was not as good as previous times. Perhaps the wait staff was understaffed. We felt our waiter was too rushed, was sometimes hard to flag down, and just generally was not up to the usual level to which we had all grown accustomed.

My husband and I had a wonderful Anniversary dinner at Capital Grille. The service and good were outstanding and everyone from the hostess to the manager to our amazing server, Jerry, went out of their way to make our evening memory. We will definitely return and have already made a reservation to celebrate a friend’s birthday.

We ordered the special salad without the mango due to a severe allergy at the table to mango. My husband ordered the special salad without the mango so he could share it with me. Half way through eating the salad we saw the mango. Luckily I had a bite from the other side of the salad and didn’t have a reaction. The waiter said “well I entered it correctly, It’s the kitchens fAult”. No one apologized or cared that this happened. We were dining with friends who gave us the gift card so I didn’t want to make a fuss and complain but I could have had a severe reaction to the mango requiring a hospital visit or worse. When you are spending $200 for lunch for 4 people there is no excuse that this could happen and be blown off as a non issue. As a follow up the manager has called to rectify this situation and we will revisit.
