Hadn’t been to a location outside of New England and had to pop in. The staff was friendly and attentive, even the manager came by to say hello. Overall very good meal with two picky things. Oysters weren’t shucked as expected and my steak was a tad sinuous but flavorful. Great cocktails, lively bar scene and fun ppl watching.

We had a great meal with friends. Paul our server was fantastic and very accommodating to my pregnant wife. My steak was a bit over cooked but did not want to send back. Everyone was very happy with their meals though.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Capital Grille in KC. We were seated promptly for our reservation. Brett was a fabulous waiter, very attentive but not bothersome. Soup, salad, entrees, side and dessert were excellent. We certainly plan on returning!

Capital Grille is consistently a delightful and delicious splurge for our special occasions. The new location with our view towards Brush Creek was an added bonus.

The entire dining experience was perfection. Service was phenomenal as our waiter was able to anticipate and accommodate our needs from the onset. Food was cooked to perfection - fish, steak, and lamb were all excellent. Presentation was beautiful. Waiter suggested splitting the two piece crab cakes into four small ones so each member of our party could enjoy them. Very nice touch. Coffee was served hot as if each cup came from a fresh pot. The flourless chocolate espresso cake was divine. Outstanding dinning experience especially for special occasions!

At first I was very impressed, it was my husband's 40th Birthday. We were seated fairly quickly, had confetti on the table with a birthday card. The atmosphere was beautiful. Then as soon as food came to the table we were very disappointed. Everything seemed to be cooked well however lacking flavor. I was disappointed with appetizer to main course. We were there for over 2 hours. And u spent $250. I feel was a waste of my money. I will never go back!!

Dinner was great as usual. We asked for our leftovers to go and didn’t realize until the next day they boxed up someone else’s dinner leftovers, so we threw it away.

We were disappointed with our server Paul who provided the minimum at best. We waited for drinks and salads. He didn’t check on us after we received our food. Was not offered dessert or coffee/after dinner drinks.

Reservation 30 minutes late to be seated but good service and ambiance. South African lobster excellent filet over cooked and not prepared consistent with past steaks at CG a much more blackened version and dry. I will chalk it up to Valentine’s Day craziness.

Wow! One of the busiest evenings of the year and we were not rushed! The hostess first sat us by the door. I asked to move. The request was no issue and accommodated immediately. All the tables were set with heart confetti and a rose. Beautiful! Abigail, our server, was amazing. The food was excellent. We had a special evening. Thank you Capital Grille!

The food was great. It was a little busy before the lunch hour. We came in was waiting for the Hostess to come back. She looked at us and then asked the people to the side if they have been helped. And they said they where here first. I fill as We were profiled based upon our clothing. And by all means we were not dressed horribly. It was the way she looked us up and down. The rest of the experience is good. But the hostess need to get over herself. You’re getting paid to work not profile people. 100% crap running the front door there.

Servers need to be trained the concept of a “mock tail “ and understand that it’s ok if people do not want or can not drink alcohol.
Food may have set out a bit before it was delivered to the table causing it to be not the normal top quality one would expect.

We had 7 pm reservations but had to wait until 7:30 to be seated. Our waiter, Michael was very friendly and helpful with our order. We started with Oysters on the half shell followed by mozzarella prosciutto which were delicious appetizers. Our table ordered a variety of sides to accompany our main course. And we had bone in ribeye, filet, lobster, salmon and the tuna. All cooked to perfection! It was a memorable evening and made for a fun family celebration.

The experience was not as good as usual. The server was distracted by a large party they were preparing for. She had us get up so she could move our table over and she didn’t pay attention to details, such as she didn’t put a candle on a dessert for birthday or refill beverages.

3/4 of our steaks came out overcooked, but the staff went above and beyond to correct the issue in a timely manner and then treated our whole table to a nicer bottle of wine than we would ever have ordered as well. Our meals were all delectable and left us full and thrilled with our experience
