Our waitress Paige was amazing! Very attentive, knowledgeable and personable. The food was outstanding. From the steaks, snapper, lobster mac and cheese and Brussel sprouts....ALL WAS FANTASTIC. We went for our 31st anniversary and they made it extra special. Can’t wait to go back!

Normally, the Capital Grill is my goto place for a steak, I have been many times before. The service was very good, however the food (steak) this time was a big let down. I had the bone in ribeye, as always but the quality this time was way of Grace A, I barely got a 1/3rd of meat out of the steak and it was stringy, additionally not up to the usual high standard. My colleagues had a bone in filet, and said it was average. He too is a big Capital Grill fan, but unfortunately it has slipped down big time. I think we will have to find another mainstay for steak, shame but I feel the quality has dropped too far.

Our food was excellent. The restaurant was packed so the service suffered a little. The 4 of us were at a booth that would easily hold 6 or more so the two people on each end were going to be about 6-8 feet away from each other. We had to add a chair so we were not so far from each other. The person using the chair was bumped by people walking by all night. When we asked for a table we were told it would be at least a 30 minute wait for another table. We had made our reservation about 4 weeks before and wondered who many walk-ins or very recent reservations had been given a real table for 4.

The Capital Grill needs a better selection of potatoes; fried with onions or hash browns, real Steakhouse potatoes. The steak and other side are First Class, but you can’t have a Steakhouse without great potatoes

The Delmonico and filet were not as favorable as usual, the lobster Mac n cheese had a slightly different after taste.

Other than that, we really enjoyed.

Can’t go wrong with capital grill. We went for New Year’s Eve and couldn’t have had a better meal. Our server Carl was awesome, attentive but still gave us space and didn’t make us feel rushed. The food is always amazing - for a party of 12 I think we ordered almost everything! Mac and cheese is to die for. The seared tuna is delicious as are the mashed potatoes and any of the steaks! Great meal and will be back.

Met out of state friends for dinner and none of us were disappointed. Food was delicious as usual and the service exceeded our expectations. Service at CG is always good but Jeffrey B and Jorge were on top of their game. They read our signals perfectly since we wanted to have a long visit as well as a great dinner.
