We had an excellent experience. The couple who joined us had never been to Capitol Grille. And loved it so much she wanted to come back next Wednesday for her birthday.

As soon as my husband & I walked through the door the service was impeccable. Our waiter Luis was outstanding. Extremely attentive and made us feel special on our Anniversary. This was my husband's first time at Capital Grille and I am elated that he was able to experience such a pleasant evening.

The food, preparation, service and ambience are outstanding. Steaks are superb as are appetizers, desserts, sides, etc. Just incredible attention to detail. Creative cocktails and a great bread basket assortment. It's pricey but we've been many times and know what to expect. Great for special occasions - do let them know beforehand when you book your reservation. We've been going for years and look forward to our next visit.

First night out in awhile due to Covid, and I was just plain tired of cooking. We decided on Capital for the steaks,since we can’t really make those at home in the winter. I had the filet and my husband had the bone in ribeye. My steak was a cooked a little over and a bit dry. My husband said he swears it was a bone in NY strip versu the ribeye. It did not have any of the marveling or tenderness of the ribeye. And both entrees came with a sad wilted green as a garnish (I was not sure what

First time at the Capital Grille for my girlfriends birthday and they certainly did not disappoint. Service was amazing and they helped make the occasion special. I ordered a Gorgonzola crusted NY Strip cooked medium rare and it was quite possibly the best steak I’ve had in my life, no lie. Would love to go again but I know my wealth won’t allow that for awhile.

Went here for our 6 year anniversary and everything was delicious! Service was great. A bit of a wait, even with the reservation. We must have waited 30 minutes to be seated, but I’m assuming it is because of Covid and there being limited seating. Either way, we had a lovely time.

Capital Grille has always been one of our favorite restaurants to go for dinner during the week or a special event. Last evening we were there, waited over 30 minutes past our reservation time,. people were stacked up in the hallway outside the bar waiting for tables, there was no social distancing, the staff at the front door was very stressed trying to figure out who and where to seat people We were asked multiple times to move not to social distance as you would think, but because they needed to get through. Also I noticed that lots of people are coming in inappropriately dressed for such a wonderful restaurant. Although everything once we were seated at the table was wonderful I. was very disappointed at this particular establishment.

We came here to celebrate my hubby's birthday and it was the perfect place to do so. The food is always outstanding, and the service impeccable. They go over and above to help you feel special with champagne and a delicious dessert to celebrate your birthday. I can't wait to go back, I highly recommend this restaurant. Our server Luis was outstanding!

Not happy that we weren’t told ahead of time that curfew was 10pm, therefore when we ordered dessert, we were told at 9;45 pm that we could have dessert there but would need to leave restaurant at 10. This was annoying especially given the money spent to dine there.

Food and service is exceptional as usual. The only problem was a couple had a screaming child with them that kept running around. The restaurant tried putting them in a private room but the child kept screaming and running out of the room. This unfortunately soured our experience when I specifically put in the reservation that I wanted a seat at one of the two tables abutting the kitchen. When I got there, they said it would be at least a 15 minute wait to get the table I requested. Unfortunately being seated in a corner booth outside the room where they placed the screaming child, was directly in our site and we could hear them screaming in the room and kept running by our table when she busted out of the room. We should've been asked to move our table since there were amply tables to move to. I will know better next time! Otherwise, spectacular as usual!
