It was a disappointment in that the appetizer was cold and sent back. The second one was good. The tenderloin was over cooked, burnt and cold, the other tenderloin was hot and the bottom of the steak was burnt to a crisp. The mashed potatoes were hard and cold the first time. The second time they were luke warm and not as hard. The bread was hot and very good. The pineapple martini was fair, not very flavorful and no garnish. Our server was nice. The manager was apologetic.

Spent $300! One steak came out at wrong temp. Other steak temp discovered was wrong as got closer to center. So both steaks were sent back eventually. Took waaay too long for food to come back. Had a add on lobster tail that was overcooked. No adjustment to bill for major inconvenience. Was late for a movie due to food issues. We've eaten at lower scaled restaurants where the food service was not correct and our bill was comp'd some way. Will never eat someplace where the food is as pricey as TCG but they can't see fit to adjust a bill due to their mistake as well as the inconvenience to the customer.

Went here on a very busy holiday season Friday evening to celebrate our anniversary. Our Opentable reservation was at 7:30, but we weren't seated until closer to 8pm. The noise level in the entryway and bar area was very high, lots of people enjoying themselves. But, it felt a bit claustrophobic and intense for me. Once we were seated, the dining room was also fairly loud, however, our table had been decorated with rose petals, confetti and there was an anniversary card. They were very thoughtful about our personal event and several staff members wished us happy anniversary. The food was excellent. I'm sure we will be back, just maybe not on a holiday season Friday evening!

This restaurant is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to eat on the Plaza. The food is delicious, the wait staff is outstanding, and the bar is excellent. On my most recent visit I celebrated my birthday with a friend and they treatment I received was fabulous.

The food was great. It was our anniversary. They had the table set perfect for the occasion and were brought with a surprising treat. Good job guys! The only thing negative if any was the noise from outside our room as well as our loud neighbors. I guess that should not have been a complaint towards the restaurant or anything they could have done. In general, we were happy!!!

superbly cooked steak with lobster mac and cheese that I have never found elsewhere. Expensive, if you include moderately priced wine, but well worth a visit, especially for a special occasion.

Outstanding in every way! This was our first dining occasion and we will return especially to KC just to dine at Capital Grill. We met one of the Managing Partners which was very nice as we were able to share our appreciation for excellent food and service. They provide very special ''events'' - such as birthday - it was a surprise and memorable.

I had been looking forward to visiting The Capitol Grill. Service was O.K., not outstanding. Food was warm not hot. Had been sitting in kitchen window a while. Apps came before drinks. Overall I still prefer Ruth Chris, but have to travel to go there.

Enjoyed the meal and the service. Noise level was very high probably because it was Thanksgiving evening. Would like to go back when you could talk across the table without having to repeat several times. Our table being in a high traffic area is probably another reason for the excessive noise.

Everything was wonderful, as usual. Service was impeccable, food was beyond delicious, we needed for nothing. Being Thanksgiving Day, I half expected to have a long wait for service, kitchen to be backed up, any of the usual issues that you would experience at other restaurants. I experienced none of those issues. I couldn’t be happier with our experience.

Our waiter was amazing. All of them there are. Place was packed. Had a reservation but only about a 10 minute wait in the bar which was packed. They send servers around in the bar and ask if you want a drink and get it fast. This eliminated having to go stand between people at the bar, try to catch a bartender and order. I thought it was very well thought out and more places should do this.
Food Perfect.
Just have never had a bad experience.

Perfect dinner from the moment we sat down. Service was perfect, cocktails excellent and lobster bisque full of huge chunks of lobster . I asked for a special sauce on my steak and he said no problem. The meal was delicious with everything done just right.
It is expensive but well worth it for a special occasion.

Was seated fairly quickly and told that our waitress would be right with us. After 10 minutes of nothing -- I stopped someone and asked if we could be waited on. The young lady immediately went to one of the wait staff and he came right over. Steve was outstanding, very knowledgeable and made the experience very enjoyable. After the initial frustration -- things turned out very well -- thanks to Steve.

Had the In Fashion cocktail, mozzarella basil tomato salad and the Kona coffee rubbed strip and every thing looked and tasted good. Our waiter was attentive but not intrusive and the valet service made getting out on a damp rainy November night a snap. Capital Grille was a nice memory for our 15th anniversary.
