Great Meal and service was terrific. For a quieter dining experience we requested to be seated in a smaller side room this made conversation a lot easier.

It is a very good high-end steakhouse with high-end prices it’s crazy on a Saturday night the parking is challenging because the valet serves four or five restaurants in that section of the mall.

I recommend going during the week

Capital Grille is a solid meal. You know what you can expect. And they usually deliver.

Shrimp cocktail excellent. Plenty of cocktail sauce and shrimp cooked to perfection. Served over ice. Zero complaints.

Ordered the filet medium with a side of spinach with garlic and oil. Steak was great for me. My brother sent his back as it was raw on the inside. Mine ordered the same way was perfect with a cooked warm pink center.

Waiter was on top of his game and we had an enjoyable meal.

I’ll be back.

I had such a fabulous time at the Capital Grille. I took my husband there for his birthday. It was a Monday night so it was not noisy. We made reservations and were attentively given a seat. I made a note that it was my husband’s birthday and they had a card and decorations on the table. I loved the music running the sound waves, our server Sarah was so kind and attentive, the food was amazing, and I left with a full belly. I will definitely return again.

While the food and service are outstanding—and I’ve eaten there several times—the valet system is a complete disaster. So bad and such a hassle that I may not eat there again.

Amazing service and food for my five year anniversary. The added touches to the table and the notes never go overlooked when we celebrate an anniversary or birthday. Because of this I have referred many people to dine with you who share the same experience and they always go back. Someone I referred went there the night before and had an amazing time. Thanks for all you do for your guests!

Came here for our anniversary dinner and the service was exceptional. We had reserved on open table and said it was for an anniversary and they went above and beyond with a adding roses to the table along with a sweet note and complimentary dessert. Food was pricey but very good, definitely worth trying out.

Always a top notch experience. One issue. I had a 7:30 reservation and wanted to make it earlier. Called them in the afternoon and person on phone said no problem. Probably distrActed and forgot to amend the reservation. We arrived the hour early and had to wait at the bar. When the hostess came the hour later to seat us two people jumped in front of us and said they were us. We had to bounce them from the table. After that a great time and unforgettable meal.

The food was salty. Calamari not their forte, it was greasy. The steak I know has a dry rub but too salty for my taste. And the truffle fries was also greasy. I expected much better quality for this upscale restaurant that I now deem overpriced. A steak for $51 and no sides included
Disappointed because it was one of my bucket list restaurants.

We've been to a couple of other locations and have enjoyed the meals and service. This was no different. It's always a bit pricey but it was expected. The only thing that stood out (negatively) was the hostess who sat us down seemed to have no personality at all. No smile and seemed to be bothered by our presence. Our waiter, Wilson, was superb. He explained the specials (with prices) and descriptions of any questions we had were answered promptly and accurately. We had to ask what all the stars on his lapel meant and he was proud to tell us about them. It showed in his service and pleasantness.

If you're looking for an inexpensive meal and drinks, this is not for you. But if you want great service and fine food, ask for Wilson.

Went for my sons birthday. Food was delicious. Drinks were expensive but good. Waiter was great. Two nitpicky things that I am only saying because it was so expensive (which I can live with if it is top notch in every way) are that the hostess made us wait a few minutes for no reason (it was early and the restaurant was empty)and the valet made me walk over to the valet station instead of coming and meeting us at the door. Both very minor and will absolutely not keep me from going back. Its just that was the first and last things that happened. Tarnished an otherwise excellent experience.

Must note... Sammy, our Waiter was absolutely terrific. He made wonderful suggestions regarding the available dishes and his service was impeccable. He was exceptionally attentive without being overbearing in the least... a very fine line to walk, but he pulled it off effortlessly. Great job.

Vanessa, as always, is the best! I love the fact that she attends to me regardless of where she is stationed for the evening. Makes me feel like a VIP!!!

On another note - the last two times I was there, the parking people were notified my car was needed, however, when I came outside, it was still in the lot, ice cold and the attendants were chatting amongst themselves.

I would rather just park it myself next time.

while the food is consistent and the service excellent i cannot wrap my head around a dinner in a mall where others dining are wearing hooded sweatshirts should cost $500 for 4 people. no coffee or desert, 3 apps for 4 people, 6 cocktails and 4 entrees and a few sides. it is hard to conceive when the people next to you are under dressed, they need to enforce a dress code of some sort
