Overall it was a good experience. However I think in my opinion that the decor needs some updates. The sixties hunter look was a little dated for my taste but did not take away from the food or service at all. I would definitely recommend.

We hadn't been to the Grille for a while and really looked forward to it. Great service as usual, and the ambiance was all you could ask for, but the food was a real disappointment. My wife had the filet and I had the strip au poivre. Both steaks were prepared to the right temperature but were really inferior quality meats; tough and tasteless. The sides were also pretty bad: the creamed spinach was watery and bland, and the risotto was so full of mushrooms you couldn't taste anything else. On the happier side, the Bordeaux was a great value and the crème brulee was fabulous. But nonetheless, for a $300 dinner for two, the Capital Grille gave us Buyer's Remorse.

The meat could come out warmer. Steak was cool. For the price they could update the inside.

A very good overall experience - we’ve been a few times before and will certainly return. Solid wine list and a menu that always makes it difficult to choose because it all sounds so good.

Lobster and crab cakes were AMAZING!!! The filet and mashed potatoes were excellent! Also, the pineapple infused vodka drink was terrific as well (They infuse it there, it’s a house speciality.)

They got the steak right but that was about it. Rest of the meal was okay but not amazing. The price for it did not equal the quality. Our server was lack luster and vanished for long periods of time. May go back some day but it will be a long time.

Although Capital Grille is my favorite restaurant, tonight's dinner was not up to par. The pear and Gorgonzola salad had pears that were so hard they had to be cut with a knife, and the greens weren't very fresh. No dressing detected. The iron skillet shrimp had very little seasoning, and the shrimp were tough and overcooked. My friend's chicken dish was tasty, and the change in au gratin potatoes was ok, but we prefer the former creamy deliciousness. The usually excellent coffee was lukewarm, but the apple tart was excellent. Our server was wonderful... friendly, attentive, and always spot on. Maybe the kitchen had an off night?

We always enjoy the high quality of the food and service at Capital Grille, and its central location makes it an ideal pre-theatre or pre-concert venue for anything from just a cocktail to a full dinner. So glad to have this restaurant in downtown Indianapolis.

From start to finish, everything was delightful. We felt cared for but not smothered in service. The food was delicious and had some unique flavors, which we appreciated. We will definitely return on future visits to Indianapolis.

This visit was a little disappointing. There were six in our group. Four of the six meals were perfect, however two were not. The steaks were over cooked and a little dry. We didn’t say anything to our waitress because (and this is the main problem) she was NEVER around. Our water glasses were empty more then full and if we needed something most of the time we asked another of wait staff close by. This was by far the worst service we have ever received at Capital Grill. She appeared to have an attitude when approaching our table, disinterested, very curt and not around when needed. I realize the restaurant was busy but we have been there in times past when it was busy and had good service. I only complain because we spent over $500.00 dollars on dinner and got the equivalent of a Denny’s waitress. It was a disappointment. We may come again but if the service continues on this path, our loyalty will be gone.
Thank you for listening to my complaint

The Capital Grille has exceeded my expectations every time. I made reservations indicating it was for an anniversary. Arrived at our table to find they had enhanced the setting for the occasion and left a card expressing their appreciation for choosing them to celebrate the event. The attention to detail and in making a dining experience more than simply shoveling great food into your mouth is unparalleled in my opinion. Great food, service, ambiance... Dining at its finest. Simply put... I’ve eaten at some wonderful places in Indianapolis (Salt, Ruth Chris, St Elmo’s, Mitchell’s Fish Market, Geraldine’s, Eagle’s Nest, etc....) Overall, having dined here three times in the last six months, I think this is the best restaurant in Indianapolis.

The four of us ordered steaks. One ordered medium well and the others medium. Steaks delivered were all well done. We advised the server who immediately agreed, took them away and soon returned with medium with the chef. Later the manager came to our table apologized and comped our wine.

We ended up having a great dinner, free wine and your service and commitment to excellence served you proud. We look forward to coming back.

While I usually enjoy a night here, this night they were a little off. We were celebrating a birthday and in every other restaurant, a birthday means a free desert at the least. They did not offer that to us. Disappointing. We ordered the bone in Filet, medium. First cut was well done. They tied to tell me it was medium closer to the bone. Not a good excuse. Sent it back twice. No discount or anything. I am not sure I would have even accepted their offer but no offer came. Again, very disappointing, especially at their prices.
