It was a lovely evening from arrival to departure. We were celebrating a friends birthday and they made the effort greet him with well-wishes , have a card at the table for him, and a lovely dessert presentation at the end of the meal.
The meals were perfect. Frankly I’m always reluctant to listen to the hype about a restaurant since so much is dependent upon the company as well as the food. But this time the food was totally on point.
Lobster Mac and Cheese is listed as a side dish but we had it as a shared appetizer. Very nicely done. List with lots of creamy cheese sauce with lobster claws added. ( Much better then the other steakhouse whose name begins with an ‘M’ ).
The steaks were perfectly done to our specifications, with the accompanying sauces hitting the right notes as well. Our guest had Bernaise sauce and shallot butter on the side with his Filet. The shallot butter is excellent and should be bottled no sold. The Bernaise was a wee bit too buttery and tasted as if it had broken at point and then been salvaged. Still delicious though. Wild mushrooms and the asparagus were sides for the meal. Both were more then enough to share among three diners.
Dessert was intriguing. The birthday presentation was a mini portion of both the cheesecake and the flourless chocolate cake. The cheesecake is lovely with a brûlée’d top. The chocolate cake is rich and dense- more like a heavy heavy mousse. The Coconut Cream Pie is a dessert tart heaped with a cream topping. ( I would have preferred to see a more traditional meringue after the richness of the balance of the menu, but again, still delicious).
Our waiter, Del, was wonderful. He paced the meal so that we weren’t rushed but also never felt abandoned. All the staff were ever present yet not intrusive. In watching the interactions with the other tables it shows wonderful staff training and professionalism.
Capital Grille is back on our to go list now.

Everything was great up until we ordered cappuccino after dinner and they arrived at our table cold. We told our waiter and he took them back and heated them instead of having new ones prepared. Other than that it was a delightful evening. Food was delicious. Wines are way overpriced.

We had another amazing experience for our Anniversary. Lucian our server always makes us feel like the only customer in the room. His attention to detail is out of this world. The food is consistently on point and the steaks are always cooked beyond perfect. I’ve never had an experience below perfect. It seems that Lucian and the Capital Grille somehow exceed my expectations every visit. He keeps raising the bar on an outstanding restaurant experience. Thank you for another memorable night again. We love this place.

I have been in many Capital Grill restaurants around the country and always the ambiance was impeccable. No this time. I was this Sunday night and in front of me was a guy with a basketball shirt, only the shirt, even though in the front door there is a dress code . This is Capital Grill Ft Lauderdale in Galleria Mall. I will never go back no because I am snob, it is because we spent a lot of money and it felt like a McDonald.

Amazing food and service at Capital Grill in Ft Lauderdale. Had a date night with my wife and the service was outstanding from the greeting to the end of the meal. Food was terrific!!! Started with the crab cocktail(jumbo lump crab with cocktail sauce and mustard sauce). My wife had the burrata salad which she said was delicious and I had the lobster bisque. Velvety smooth and flavorful broth loaded with lobster meat. I mean huge pieces. This is a must get. On to the main courses: sea bass in a delightful miso butter and seared tenderloin with butter poached lobster. Both were amazing. Mashed potatoes and caramelized Brussels sprouts with bacon for sides. Although stuffed—Finished off the meal with flourless chocolate espresso torte. Divine! We are already planning our next visit. Great experience.
