We have always had a good experience at Capital Grille - We were a bit disappointed, however on 5/11 at the Hartford location. Reservation was for 8:30pm We arrived on time and were told tables were running 15min late - no problem. We went to the bar for some excellent drinks. At 9:15 I checked with the hostess about our table and was informed we would be next and we were seated 5 min later. While I certainly understand that sometimes seating takes a little longer I feel it would not have been out of order to offer a drink or appetizer for our 45min wait especially as we spent $300+ at dinner. I just would have felt our business and time were appreciated. Other than that, it was a very nice evening.

It was a good time my daughter had just graduated. They go above and beyond to make it special. But I gotta say the food was not up to the expectations I was expecting. But maybe it was an off night for the cook.

It was my daughters birthday and her and her husband's 20year anniversary. Jordan our waiter was wonderful and very professional. He served us four glasses of champagne and at the end of our wonderful meal he served us 2 dishes of dessert. These two generous offerings were very nice and appreciated. It made our lunch that more special. The Capital Grill is an outstanding restaurant!!!

Scallops were VERY over cooked and I certainly wouldn’t call them jumbo size at all. Very disappointing. Server didn’t come back to ask how everything was and had to ask for mint jelly twice for one of the folks that ordered lamb. I made the reservation knowing that Capital Grille usually delivers a very good meal. Won’t be a go to next time.

Our waiter Joshua was phenomenal. This is probably our fifth visit and the last two times we had Joshua for our waiter. We requested him this past weekend.

My tomahawk steak was excellent, I have not stopped talking about it or showing pictures of it to all of my friends. We will definitely be back, this is a great establishment.

I just left a longer review on google reviews. In short, we had a fantastic time and highly recommend. Our server, Martha was professional, knowledgeable and kind. The kitchen whipped up a favorite appetizer for my partner. And when my partner's steak was overdone--it can happen anywhere--David, the Manager, assisted. without being defensive at all. He looked at the steak, agreed, and while we didn't expect it, he provided another that was perfect. The Management is second to none. They go over and beyond basics by a lot and it makes a huge difference. (My salmon was superb, by the way.) As Martha noted, you don't want just nice/good at Capital Grille, but a "WOW." They really delivered last Thursday night. We will return and will tell our friends. Thank you Martha, David, and Hartford staff for a truly appreciated effort and a lovely evening out. Best, Christine

Overall one fantastic experience!!!! Started off with appetizer of Lobster and crab cakes loaded with large chunks of lobster . So yummy! My salmon came with a unique and superb sauce. Roasted brussel sprouts also excellent as well as the veal tomahawk chop.
Noise level very good. We had a quiet table in the back room. Our server-Jordan- was excellent. He spoiled us with dessert and champagne. Every step of the way - food, constantly filled water glasses, service, dessert etc.....was impeccable.
