The Capital Grille never let's us down. The food and service are always top notch. A great place to celebrate an event such as a birthday or anniversary, or just for a great night out.

Bread was great! Good variety, too. Clam Chowder and Wedge Salad were very good. Split au gratin potatoes and they were pretty good....probably a 7 out of 10. My wife ordered a 10 oz filet and I ordered the 12 oz bone in filet. Mine was really good..........almost Ruth's Chris level, but my wife's was underdone. She ordered hers medium and it came out rare. When they tried to fix it, they ended up over-cooking it and burning the outside. So, steaks were 7-8 out of 10.

Our server, Celia, was excellent! Very friendly, very attentive. When the kitchen screwed up my wife's steak, Celia brought us a 'dessert plate', with some fruit, flourless chocolate cake and cheesecake. And to wash it down, she brought each a glass of sparkling wine.

Overall, very good place to eat. We'd go back.

Ask for Celia, if you go. She'll give you the best service you've ever had!

Disappointed! The food was average, especially considering the price. My filet mignon was tough on the outside and definitely not tender in the middle. The Oscar did not taste fresh and had a glue like me consistency. The lobster bisque was good and best thing we ate. Will not return.

We had reservations and the hostess took her sweet time seating all who were waiting. She seemed aloof and wasn’t friendly at all. Our reservations were for 7:45 but was not seated until probably 8:10. Our steaks were more done than medium so overall it wasn’t a super dinner for the price.

Capital Grill never disappoints. The lobster Mac and Cheese is worth every single calorie and the best we’ve even had. We had a bone in rib eye cooked to perfection (Pittsburg Char Medium Rare). The lobster tails were fabulous as well. Highly recommend.

I booked this dinner thru the Restaurant Week website, and clicked on the link provided to Open Table. When we got to dinner, they told us that Restaurant Week was over so we could not order from that menu. The whole reason I booked was to be part of restaurant week and did not think that the link thru the actual website would let me book outside of those parameters. I was very frustrated about it since I had tried other places through that restaurant week website and was told certain days were already full (which is why I assumed the link was date specific).

It was our 3 years anniversary and we wanted to try this place out. We heard good things about this establishment and were excited to try it! Everything was amazing. From us being checked in and waiting for our table at the bar and talking to the awesome bartender, Noah I believe his name was? To our amazing waitress, Katie, who was fabulous. She helped us out a lot. We were beyond please with everything, like I don’t have the words to express how phenomenal everything was. The food was soooo GOOD! The best filet I’ve ever had, by far. I think we just found our new place to eat for every anniversary;)

The restaurant was beautiful and the food was delicious. I would have given it a 5 star rating if the server wouldn’t have brought out an open can of Diet Coke to refill my cup. I was surprised and speechless and felt it wasn’t appropriate in a 5 Star restaurant.

We were unapologetically sat 45 minutes after reservation time, with continued reassurance it would only be a few more short minutes. After we were sat, we were not greeted by our server for another 15 minutes. After finally placing our order, we were relatively quickly served our first course, of soup. Unfortunately, another patron bumped into our server, causing the soup to be spilled on my girlfriend's hair, arm, and entirely down her coat. Understanding this was not the server's fault, we simply expected an immediate, heartfelt, apology and perhaps an offer to assist in cleaning the aftermath. Instead, we received a muttered, "well you put your f***ing head into my arm" in reference to the patron that caused the spill, and tossed a napkin to clean up, but only after specifically requesting one. Lastly, we were informed that the two different deserts we ordered, an hour prior, were both completely sold out and unavailable. Overall, we were incredibly disappointed in the experience.

This was my first experience dining at the Capital Grille. The food was cooked to perfection. The staff was great. Brought my mom here for her bday. They sprinkled bday decor on the table, gave her a card and gave my entire family complimentary champagne for the celebration. This was really beyond our expectation. We were definitely not disappointed.

Great experience as always. Seated timely even though there was a large crowd. Fabulous service, especially from Bob our favorite server. It was really busy due to restaurant week but we were never rushed and didn’t have to wait too long for courses. Best place for steaks in KC by a distance. Looking forward to our next trip already.
