Hi,

My Capital Grille experience was great and it was for my friends b-day. The staff did a great job as she hadn't been there before. I hadn't been there in several years and likely will be back much sooner.

Thank you for asking!

We came for our anniversary and the staff went above and beyond to make it an unforgettable experience. From the host staff, to Chris our waiter, to the manager - everyone was so pleasant and each one of them told us happy anniversary. If you have an anniversary I highly recommend a special dinner at Capital Grille... you wont be disappointed at all.

Every part of our experience here was what all restaurants should strive for. Helpful and polite hostess, knowledgeable and attentive waitstaff, and out of this world food. We came here to celebrate our anniversary and they made us feel like royalty. We will definitely be back and recommend to everyone! Thank you Capital Grille for making our anniversary one to remember.

The food and service were exceptional. The only problem we had was that our order did not come out correctly. Though the restaurant was more than willing to correct the mistake, we kept our order as it came out. Other than that, it was an exceptional visit.

Capital Grille never disappoints. The menu has been the same for years but that’s OK. The lobster crab cakes are like none other in town. You can also add a 3rd and make it a dinner portion. All the steaks are excellent but I’ve always favored the sliced filet which has mushrooms and a great sauce. The coconut cream pie is one of the best desserts in town. Also our server, Chris Child’s, was excellent.

Excellent service and perfect food. As a vegetarian it can be difficult in a steak and seafood setting. However, the seared tofu was stunning. A great place for a business lunch.

Reservation for 8 people on a Saturday evening at 7 for wife’s birthday. Upon arriving, the table was ready and we were sat immediately. Parking was a bit of a fiasco but we found out they offer complimentary valet so that’s an added bonus and a better option. Service was great but drinks and food took an excessive amount of time to arrive. Food was good. Calamari was amazing and all the sides we shared were fantastic. I was a little let down by my porterhouse I ordered blue because they talked me into Pittsburgh style filling it which is charring the outside a little but still blue inside. This style took away from the natural flavor of the dye aged steak. Everyone else’s steaks were good but not quite as good as we had expected and hoped.

We had a reservation for 4:15 pm and ended up waiting 30 minutes for our table on Mother’s Day for dinner. We had two seniors in the group and the hostess was rude, food mediocre and no real exceptional customer service. It was a huge let down! We won’t be returning.

All the salads (beet salad and wedge salad), entrees (porcini rubbed ribeye; beef tenderloin and lobster and lamb chops), sides (grilled asparagus, Brussel sprouts as truffle fries) were really delicious. The two desserts were also excellent (chocolate cake and coconut cream pie)! Definitely will be back!

Overall, we had a very good experience! We all ordered some type of steak, I got the filet. It was just good, could have been better for the price. Didn’t really have that much flavor. However we ordered the lobster Mac n cheese and the gratin potatoes and they were so so so good!!! Will definitely order those again. The service was just ok, we felt like he forgot about us at some points and I feel like was waiting on too many tables.
