Food and service were excellent. Our Server, Saul, went above and beyond to make our anniversary dinner special. Complimentary Champagne, dessert, and a framed photo were extra special touches.

A dining must that never disappoints. Food is always delicious, and service is impeccable. The filet and twin lobster tails were fantastic.
They always go out of the way to make a special occasion, extra special. Try the Stoli Doli and coconut cream pie.

Food was great and attention to the diner with a birthday in our group was amazing! However overall attention to detail was poor for a restaurant of this quality and class.

Waiter never asked how the bill was split so he was others filling glasses with one couples bottle of wine. At the end, dropped off the bill with the birthday guest with no question as to how the bill was split.

Two guests dinners were accidentally combined and after the one guest started eating their food the waiter came over and told them that the steak they were eating was not theirs and asked to take it off the plate at the table and put it on the correct plate. Somewhat tacky. There was no attempt to make up for the inconvenience to both guests.

Waiter never asked about any food allergies when ordering which is disappointing but I know not all restaurants have caught up to this standard. I had to ask a few times about options for my allergies.

At the end, two guests wanted Port. The waiter ordered the wine without informing or asking about vintages available.

I expected attention to detail to be impeccable in a restaurant of this quality and this wasn’t.

We celebrated our anniversary at The Capital Grille. While booking on Open Table, I checked the box that said “celebrating anniversary”. Upon arriving, our table was decorated beautifully. Along with a card, they took a picture, framed it while we ate dinner, presented us with an anniversary dessert and champagne to toast. It was amazing! They went way above and beyond to make sure our evening was special.

Hunter Scott was absolutely amazing! My fiancé, maid of honor/sister and I came here two days before our wedding in KC and I have never been at a restaurant where we received this level of service. Outstanding! I can not speak highly enough of our experience! Hunter was unbelievable in making our night incredibly memorable! We have been to so many places in KC that have been great but this was unparalleled! I would recommend over all the places in KC and the metro area, this service was unreal! HUGE THANK YOU TO HUNTER! ❤️

We thoroughly enjoyed lunch. The food was good, the service was timely and appropriate and our server, Stevie C, was wonderful. We particularly liked that Stevie took the time to let us know if items were cooked a bit differently then what you would typically see, i.e. salmon on the salad was blackened and firm compared to grilled or baked.

Our server was excellent. The food order was beyond a disappointment. We waited an abnormal amount of time to receive the food and when it arrived the order was wrong and one steak was undercooked. They tried to then make the temperature right... but then overcooked it. Because so much time had lapsed we sent it back and went without. They did comp us desert which was nice. However, when going to the CG you expect to pay a lot for a meal and with that expectation comes an expectation of best in class service, meal and atmosphere and they didn't deliver on a very special occasion for my family.

I have dined at several of these establishments across the country. This night we were celebrating our anniversary with another couple. Where they sat us was not a good spot. In a corner adjacent to a television on the wall. My friend hit her head a couple of times and we had to ask either we be moved or the televison be raised out of the way. Also, why sit people who are celebrating their anniversary near a television? Other than that, the night went great.

Our steak came out burnt and it was the special filet on the bone. They had the burned side down. We ordered it medium and it came rare /. Raw and inside cool to touch. Had to send it back. Also the side of Brussels That came with the entrée was also cool. Not just not warm but actually cool to the touch. For a $60 steak we felt this was on acceptable. They sent out a shrimp cocktail while we waited on the house which was very nice but really they never should’ve serve the First steak to begin with knowing it was not right. There was not a big apology from the manager or any kind of recognition of how unacceptable it was at a place like this. Especially the cold brussels sprouts as well being cold. They also gave us two free desserts but we told them we were just so full I think that the right thing would’ve been to not charge us for the steak. The ambience was OK, the service was fine but overall we had high expectations and we were very disappointed.f

This was our first opportunity to visit the Capital Grille. We were pleasantly surprised. We had noted that we were celebrating our Anniversary. When we arrived, the table was already decorated with a rose, a congratulation card and "sprinkles". We were treated to champagne and dessert (even though we had purchased another dessert). The prices are high but the steak was cooked perfectly (I like a rare steak) and was so tender you could cut it with a butter knife. The lobster mac and cheese is a MUST! We will certainly return for future celebrations. Thank you!

I took my GF to The Capital Grille for her birthday. We arrived before 5pm on Friday just before the crowds, it filled up quickly.
Our server Jackson was outstanding. I mentioned it was my Gf's birthday and he made it extra special. We received a glass of champagne and he sprinkled birthday confetti on our table. Jackson took our picture and presented us with a nice picture along with a birthday dessert and a happy birthday card from the staff.

We had the oysters on a half shell for appetizer and they were the best we've had in quite some time, very clean tasting.
My GF ordered the scallops and of course they were mouthwatering delicious, served with flavorful firm asparagus. I ordered the filet with bone in Oscar, it was very good, and also served with asparagus. I ordered steak medium/rare, and will probably order it medium next time. The steak was just a tad more rare than I would have liked, but still very good and very tender.
Jackson was very attentive and an asset to any dining experience. I'm sure the rest of the staff was just as professional.
We both highly recommend The Capital Grille for special occasion's.
It is a bit pricey but well worth it.
We will be returning to this special restaurant!

Capital Grill never fails to impress offering great service, a welcoming atmosphere, and always delicious food. The cocktails were prepared perfectly, the appetizers were a delight, and the steaks were cooked to temperature, juicy, and a culinary delight. The lobster mac and cheese side was a hit with our group. While the steaks are second to none at Cap Grill, I'm not in love with all of their sides. They're hit and miss, but all in all a great restaurant I'll come back to.

In my travels to nearly 80 countries, I’ve been to my fair share of expensive restaurants; Alain Ducasse in Paris, Aragawa in Tokyo, Per Se and Masa in New York. Patrons have higher expectations for restaurants charging such exorbitant rates, and rightfully so. Many establishments are able to meet the lofty anticipation of diners. But Capitol Grille in Kansas City doesn’t achieve the expected standard, not even remotely. At $300 for three people (entrees and sides only), the food was quite mediocre, at times downright inedible. We experienced nothing but utter disappointment after driving 500 miles to eat here on my birthday.

Let me first say that the service is excellent, the employees are very well prepared, and the ambience was just what we expected. The lobster bisque, despite its imperfections, had ample amounts of lobster, as did the lobster mac ‘n’ cheese. But there were so many failures!

Kansas City is known for its beef production, one of the premier destinations for American steak lovers. But the 24-ounce porterhouse I ordered was deplorable, filled with gristle, not tender, way undercooked on the inside, yet burnt on the outside. At nearly $60, it pales in comparison to $20 steaks I’ve eaten at Logan’s, Longhorn, Texas Roadhouse, and even budget steakhouse Quincy’s for crying out loud! How could a restaurant of such status serve such a lackluster piece of meat??? The server bragged about the in-house aged beef in a city known for its steaks, but this was nothing short of a disaster!!!

The truffle Parmesan fries were less than perfect, and I failed to find a hint of Parmesan cheese, only the overwhelming smell of truffle oil. The mac ‘n’ cheese with generous morsels of lobster (and an acceptable cheese sauce) contained pasta that was either stale or uncomfortably al dente. Thankfully, the cheesecake was delicious with a crispy edge, incredible texture and crust, and tasty fruit medley. I’d come here for dessert and skip the entrees!

The food was excellent as usual for the Capitol Grille. The filet was cooked proper and the lobster was delicious as was the lobster mac n cheese. I had made a special request regarding a celebration for our reason for eating which they said they had something special planned for us when they called to confirm the reservation. Told my wife I had arranged that and unfortunately every table in our section had something done but ours. That was the biggest disappointment, if not planning to or able to do something special then no big deal, just don't tell the customer you are as was let down a bit.
