We went out for my boyfriend’s birthday dinner and everything was wonderful. Our server Bill was very attentive and the dinner was well paced for the occasion. Will definitely be back!

While the food was wonderful, we were a party of 7 seated at a 6 top table in the middle of traffic. It was incredibly loud (and crowded), and so busy that our server was rarely there when we needed her. When we asked to move our server’s reply was ‘but those tables are for those who have reservations...well, we had a reservation too! Just not for a table for 6!

We had an enjoyable family birthday celebration dinner. The shrimp and salad appetizers were excellent as were the salon and filet mignon entrees.Our server Adam provided friendly and exceptional service ensuring we had an enjoyable evening. He brought out a complementary dessert to celebrate our birthdays which made for a nice ending to an already great dinner experience.

I’ve been to many Capital Grille’s across the country, but the staff here makes this one stand out. Both times we’ve been to this specific location; the wait staff is extremely accommodating and management is always attentive and checking in on things. Food is cooked perfectly to order and timely.

This particular Capital Grille gets an A. It was a wonderful experience on New Year's Eve. We had four people with us, one of whom does not eat red meat. No matter. She loved her salmon. Two had the boned-in Filet mignon and raved. I had the boned-in New York Strip with a special sauce, the name of which escapes me, but it was delicious! I will be back!

We wanted a special New Year’s Eve night so we Reserved a special table in the lounge and when we arrived the table was unavailable . (We were told that the restaurant had to split up tables to provide more seating ).
My husband and I were sat in the main dining room next to a family of 6 with kids . The waitress was extremely Formal with zero personality . The food was okay, I sent back the Filet and lobster .
200$ later . Not a good night .

Came here for Christmas Eve and dinner and service was ok but I expected more for the price and the reputation of Capital Grill. Steak was not medium rare plus—more rare but it was so busy we didn’t send it back. Will wait to come back and maybe try it sometime other than a holiday.

Made a reservation and requested a booth or quiet table. they said the booth that was left was reserved for someone else. After questions they said that we could have the booth if we could leave by 1:15 as it was reserved for someone else at that time so I declined. It sat empty until the other person came in at 1:30. I didn't understand the logic in that or the being good for your business. We left at 1:45. Everything was delicious but disappointed in your coconut pie. It was more of custard with whipped cream smothered all over.

I was so excited to go to Capital Grille as the one in Pennsylvania was so amazing. But to my surprise it was just average filet mignon. Should have chose a different birthday venue.

I did like how they brought out a happy birthday plate ..

Service was good, but I was disappointed in my steak. I ordered a NY Strip medium rare. It came medium/medium well. I was hungry so I didn't send it back, but for the price, the steak was tough and not tender. I thought it was over priced for the quality of the steak. The vegetables were delicious and the best part of the meal.
