    As many times as i have dined at Capital Grille, if this was my first visit, I would never come back. Service was slow, food was not served as ordered, wait staff seemed over whelmed. Generous Pour was not as expected. A red wine was poured into a glass with a previous wine. A DEFINITE NO NO. I was at your restaurant Saturday for generous pour, i knew the wines. Using the same glass distorted the taste, the server even called me prior to arrival and ask if we were doing Generous Pour. Not prepared for fine dining service. I requested NO ONION on my salmon. It arrived with large chunks of onion on the plate. I AM ALLERGIC TO ONION. IF I ASK FOR NO ONION, MY MEAL SHOULD ARRIVE WITH NO ONION…….PERIOD. Regardless of the reason………I tipped 20 percent, not because it was earned, but because it was a birthday celebration and i pay it forward. Disappointing evening, server seemed to have an attitude/. I was last to arrive, so maybe i missed something, Service and food leaves me very disappointed in your restaurant

    Our waiter was Tyler. He did an excellent job knowing the menu and answering questions and describing various specials. My wife had the Sea Bass and I had the bone-in Rib Eye. Her dinner was delicious as was mine. The steak was huge and one would need a big appetite to consume it all. We had 1/2 size sides also very nice. It was our anniversary so it was made even more special with the welcoming card on our table signed by the entire staff. Again very special dinner for us.

    While our appetizers and sides were great, both of our steaks were underdone. We like them med-rare, not raw. The cocktails were good, but a little stingy on my martini. I noticed that all the other tables had hot hand towels delivered to them-we did not get them. There was an obnoxiously loud party in the back room that was annoying. And finally, we were there for a special occasion, and the waitress “packaged” our dessert to go! She either did not understand or was wanting us to go. It was a ‘B’ experience. Not up to the quality or standard for which Capital Grille is known.

    What an excellent place to go to celebrate an occasion. They had a handwritten card for our anniversary, and a decorated dish for our Crem Brulé. Th e food was fantastic with a perfectly cooked steak and salmon, delectable lobster bisque, wonderful au gratin potatoes, and let's not forget the lobster and crab cakes.

    It was a good visit but I didn’t walk away with the “that was perfect” experience we generally receive from the chain. I had made reservations a week prior and was excited to dine here again in town to celebrate a new promotion. We were warmly greeted and seated within a few minutes of our reservation. We started with the famous bread basket and salted butter. Always so good and a perfect way to start the dining experience. We ordered the Lobster and Crab Cakes. These are so good and love that corn garnish that comes with it. I did have an issue with the server who brought out the steaks and food (not our main server). We were missing the Spinach and when I asked about it, he snarled and snipped in a tone and said “I only have two hands”. He could have just said it’s on its way. There was a direct arrogance with his reply that did not set well with me. Took me off guard and I sheepishly and embarrassingly apologized. I should have said something but it was a celebration so I just had to let it go the best I could and enjoy the meal. The rest of the meal was good. For dinner, I ordered the Dry Aged New York Strip . It honestly wasn’t the best and slightly over cooked and surprisingly had little flavor. My partner had the bone in rib-eye. His looked absolutely amazing and he said it was perfect. He choose a glass of red wine that paired well with the steak. He was really excited about it. For the table sides we did the Sautéed Spinach With garlic confit and the Sam's Mashed Potatoes. Great choices and really like that sweet cream they use in the potatoes. We concluded the meal with dessert - The Capital Grille Cheesecake and I discovered the Coconut Cream Pie. I went with something new and.I loved this and it was such a highlight. Our main server was really good, just spent a lot of time waiting. Based on this visit they could really use some improvement in service speed and guest interactions. They are known for exceptional service and good food.

    Very disappointed. 3 people in our party & all of us were disappointed in our steaks . They were tough & not a good grade of beef. I think they completely forgot to season mine. The manager took it back to the kitchen & it came back with better taste, but was still very rough. The server described it as the end cap of the strip, which was supposed to be like a filet. Not even close, though. And it was supposed to be dry aged for 50 days, but didn't have the robust flavor of other dry aged steaks I've had.

    Everything about our meal was excellent, particularly our server Ashley, with one completely unnecessary, utterly inexcusable exception. We had made our reservation the preceding November, some six months in advance. Nevertheless, and even though we had requested a table in view of the bar area, plus we were far better dressed than several of the guests dressed in tee shirts and wearing baseball caps (in a five forks restaurant - where the heck are both the restaurant's and those guests' sense of proper attire?), the young 20 something hostess wanted to seat my wife and me at the least appealing table for two in the entire restaurant, which I refused. Despite there being an available table set for two available where we wanted to sit, plus three other tables for four or more diners in the same area of the restaurant turned over within a few minutes later, we were told that the particular table we requested (which had two, not four, places set) was reserved for a group of four guests with a reservation. So what - we also had a reservation! That was an absolutely, utterly, fabricated reply. The restaurant's manager relented; we were seated not only where we wanted to sit, but where we should have been seated in the first place! Management should personally acknowledge to me its' hostess's serious lack of experienced, proper judgement.
