Our server, Jackson was extremely poor. Very slow and inattentive. Brought wrong entree and argued with us stating we ordered incorrectly. Overall poor experience

Terrific dinner for our wedding anniversary. We were well taken care of including complimentary glass of champagne and dessert to share. Pricing was expectedly higher than necessary.

We thought the Service was outstanding. We both had the Filet which was so tender you could cut it with a fork. Everything was top notch. I would recommend it to anyone who wanted to have a great meal with great service. we will go again

Because previous dinner experiences there where much better, I may or may not return. When I spend $300 on dinner and drinks for two, I expect a certain level of ambiance and we did not get it.

I suggest only dining there if a nice table (with a table cloth and not across from a damn TV) is provided.

We were nicely dressed with jacket and dinner dress so there was no excuse for putting us where the “children” running the check-in table sat us.
I regret not declining the table we were ushered to.
Eddie V’s and McCormicks does better.

Capital Grille has been our go to restaurant for nearly 20-years for birthday and anniversary celebrations. The new restaurant is LOUD — too loud for an intimate dinner date. The bar noise in the dining room is overwhelming.

Beautiful new location! We had a reservation, and were seated within 5 minutes. Our server was very attentive but not obnoxiously so. My steak was overdone, and I was given a corrected order promptly. The meal was very good!

The ambiance and service of a delicious meal was outstanding. For a newly opened restaurant, we were surprised to have been brought a bottle of wine from their electronic wine list that was 2 years younger that what was on their list. They did not have a bottle from the advertised wine list and were going to charge the same price as the older wine. We ended up going with an entirely different bottle. Just interesting that they didn’t update an electronic list.

65th Wedding Anniversary celebration for my parents and family. We were seated in an alcove for 6 that was lovely and quiet. Our server, Hunter, was excellent. The experience could not have been nicer. Thank you!

It has been a while since I have been “wowed” at a restaurant. This place did the job. The best part of our experience was our server who’s name was Corey. Food was also absolutely amazing. Three suggestions: Make sure you try the pumpernickel bread, get Kona rub on your steak, and if you’re at the KC location, ask for Corey.

This new location has been handsomely decorated with tables a comfortable distance from each other and a moderate noise level for a large dining room. Our server hit just the right note of hospitality. However our filet mignon and veal chop were just a cut below in quality from what you would expect from a top of the line steakhouse.

This was our first time to the new location. It's large, light, and low noise level with the great food and drinks they served at the old location. We had an excellent evening in large part to our waiter Stevie C! We'll be back.

Summer birthday celebration for all four of us. Service was excellent. The new restaurant looks great & has an elegant feel. The only disappointment was that our medium rare steaks were not warm. They still tasted good but are typically served nicely warmed.

Food was cold and the kitchen could not keep up with only a 3/4 full restaurant. Our reserved table was not ready, water was not filled throughout the evening and support service staff was poor. Servers of the food were dirty and were not representative of our expectations of a Capital Grille. It was hard to get a desert menu and it took 3 hours for our meal. Management had no impact or desire to improve the experience. Our waiter, Fred, was fine, but his hands were tied due to the kitchen and management. Until, this new location gets their act together, we will not return and have already told others to find a different place for a great dining experience.
