This was our 14 year old son's first trip to Capital Grille and he had the perfect Classic Steak House experience. From the appetizer and freshly baked bread to the main entrees and sides, it did not disappoint. The continual attention from our server John and his team definitely put the experience "over the top" for us! Many thanks!!

They made our anniversary special, The food was amazing as well as the service. We were served a complimentary glasses of champagne and a special dessert plate, as well as a long stemmed rose and card. Our steaks were prepared perfectly, and we enjoyed the entire meal, we are on Keto diet, and it was pretty easy to stay on track and we were so full and satisfied without being miserably full afterwards. We didn't eat anything but the berries on the dessert plate, and a small taste of the cheesecake and flourless chocolate cake, but we could tell they were excellent, it was hard to pass on finishing the entire dessert treat. Amazing experience, we will return.

The experience at The Capital Grille was one for the memories. I simply mentioned when making the reservation that we were celebrating our 9 year anniversary. Friday evening a table was immediately available for us where our unrivaled server John had a table decorated with a rose, hearts and a lovely arrangement of red & white dinnerware. Complimentary treats with attentive, kind and friendly service. The food was beyond excellent with no waiting at all for a new drink, addition to you order or problems with dietary adjustments. The Capital Grille knows how to treat it's guest and that's how exactly it feels like when dining here. Your are a more than a customer, you are their guest.

We decided to order steak since this was our 1st visit. Both steaks were AMAZING. I will pass on the mashed potatoes... they were overly salted. Order their cheesecake for dessert... most ever!

This is always one of my favorite places in KC to get a steak. Especially a filet. Always perfect. When we arrived at 7pm for our reservation they had been without power for about an hour, and we have to drink at the bar for about another hour before power was restored. I thought maybe we would get a slight discount for having to wait another hour before eating, as there were not many people waiting. No discount, but everything was excellent.

Fabulous restaurant, ambience, service, and exquisite food selection. We would suggest, however, that the Capital Grille offer some wines at various price points that are acceptable in taste. Not being wine connoisseurs, we hate to splurge on a very expensive bottle of wine. The lower-priced bottle of wine we ordered was not acceptable. This Finest of dining establishments used to carry bottles of wine in a $30-40 price point range that were still palatable and acceptable. We did order the one Chardonnay in that range, $44, and there were maybe two other Pinot Grigio’s, at the $40 price point, and it was just not acceptable. We are very easy to please, so if we find it unacceptable, it has to be truly that.They really need to reconsider their wine list. Otherwise, a great experience and outstanding service and food selection.

Our service was THE BEST! You can't ask for better employees (from my view). I had run over a carton in the parking lot which got caught under my car. JD offered and came out and retrieved it when I backed up. Our "own" server, John, was with us but NOT hovering. My clam chowder was awesome....hot, full of clams and tasty. Unfortunately the next course, shrimps and risotto was not so stellar. The shrimps were really luke-warm, when they should have been piping hot, and some of the asparagus was not as tender as it should have been. (and they were out of the wine I selected!) But I would go back.

We celebrated our 50th anniversary last evening with a lovely dinner at Capital Grill. Our server, Ashley, asked us early on if we were there for any special occasion. We told her we were celebrating & almost immediately she was back with glitter for our table, a very nice anniversary card & a rose. We had a delicious dinner but most of all we felt so well taken care of by Ashley. She answered all our questions & made some very good suggestions. At the end of our meal, Ashley brought us a lovely dessert to share. What a special evening. Thanks Ashley.

We had an amazing time. It was my first visit and I was highly impressed. The ambiance was wonderful, however, my eyes aren't the best so it was hard to read the menu with the lower lighting. I used my phone's light to see better but did it in my lap as I didn't want to disturb other patrons with the brightness. Outside of that, the food was excellent and our server Meredith was phenomenal!!!!

Everything was great except the coconut cream pie. Don’t get me wrong, it was extremely good. However it is a far cry from the one at the St. Louis Capital Grille. This crust was a tad tough, not flaky, and the filling was a little runny. Having experienced the other, I know how good the pie can be.

I took 11 of my friends to Capital Grille for my 18th birthday and the staff was so cooperative with 12 teenage girls in their high class restaurant and gave us the best service. I took 4 of my friends back last week for spring break and the service is impeccable every time I go. I never felt that the staff or people around us were annoyed with the giggly teenagers and they treated us like any other customer; with the best service! It is such a fun place for us to go and get some AMAZING food and make fun memories. It will forever be one of my favorite places to celebrate any occasion and I recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone!

Absolutely one of the most enjoyable dining experiences I've had in a long time. I took my two young daughters for a special night out and the wait staff, chefs, hosting staff were all fantastic. Our waitress Bethany took extra talking to the girls about what they wanted, and how they wanted it cooked. At one point I had to leave the table with my oldest daughter (bathroom run) and when I returned another member of the staff had sat down with my youngest daughter to keep her company while I was gone...and I should address the food as well, it was amazing, the dry aged strip should not be missed...and the wine is tasty as well. Again, my thanks many times over the entire staff at Capital Grille for making this dad and his two little girls night out one to remember!

It was so love,y to be greeted at the entrance but also at the private room too. Thank you to the management who kept dropping in to say hello and also the special gifts they had for our special “birthday gal” and all of us too! Thank you for being you and for being known not only for great food but special service with a smile too!

My wife and I visited Capital Grille for our anniversary and we couldn't have been happier. Our food was absolutely amazing. We had different steak entrees that were both cooked perfectly. Our service was just as impressive. Our server had the perfect balance of warm and friendly without being intrusive. We were also impressed with everyone else that visited the table. The server that brought our first round of drinks noticed that my wife didn't love her prosecco and replaced it with something she loved without hesitation. The dessert for our anniversary was also a nice touch, not to mention how delectable it was. We will definitely be back.
