For someplace like the Capital Grille, I expect better. They were busy, the day after Valentine's Day, but we always go out that day for my husband's birthday. I don't think they're equipped to handle a full restaurant. Orlando Millenia Capital Grille is a drive, but we will be going back there next year instead as they set the bar so high for this chain and other high end restaurants. Food wasn't cooked as ordered, took forever to get our wine (which we brought), service was same as service at a Chili's would be, and never did a manager stop at any of the tables around us. They have plenty of room for improvement and with so many other good local restaurants, they need to do so if they are going to stay.

It was very nice to be greeted during check-in with a glass of sparkling wine; it set the mood for an enjoyable Valentine's dinner. Even though it was extremely busy, we did not feel rushed. Our server, Makayla, was such a pleasure and her recommendations were spot on. The bone-in filet with mushrooms paired with the perfect red wine. Wonderful evening thanks to Makayla and Capital!

Very consistent in every way. Never disappoints. One item was missing from our grilled seafood platter and the Chef delivered it personally. Nice touch. Corking fee a bit high and service was a bit slow but it was Valentine’s Day, after all!

Main course order wasn’t taken until we were almost done with our appetizers, which was about 45 minutes into dinner. When we got the food, it was barely warm. It took almost 2 hours for us to have dinner. It was decent, but not worth anything close to $200. Probably won’t be back.

A few things were “off”; steak too rare, my entree salad came before husband’s steak, and a requested drink did not show. And still, everything was fantastic. Even with these out of character issues, our food was phenomenal, service was superior. Great early valentines dinner.

My husband and I were a table of two and not one time did someone ask to refill our water glasses. We had to ask. Our server didn’t ask how our food was. Our plates were not cleared after a course - out appetizers remained on the table when our next course was brought out and we had to finally ask someone to come clear our table. The steaks were mediocre. I expect we could have had better service and food quality at Outback for a quarter of the price.

Capital Grill is our place to go for special occasions, we love the entire experience from the Parking process, to the entire dinning experience. Excellent food done right the way you want it, great menu selections and excellent top of the line service. For appetizer we always share their Prosciutto Wrapped Mozzarela, then we go into the Porterhouse Steak or the In Bone Steak, Bothe re great choices. we also have tried their File Mignon and my wife loves their Lamb Chops. Desserts are always a nice surprise and awesome taste. we take our own wine for a reasonable corking fee. Net a great place for either Linch, Brunch or dinner.

If you want a date night where you can hear yourself speak, ask not to be put into one of the “side rooms”. We were a table for 2 seated alongside 3 tables of 6. The room was about 20X20 and was packed. We had to yell across the table the whole meal. I stepped into the main dining room after we were done and the noise level was just fine. I’m not one to need peace and quiet at all...but it had to be 90 dB in “side room”.

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 .
