    4.5/5 the 14 oz steak was cooked to well when asked for medium. The ambiance & valet were great and the drinks were prepared great. Excellent service for the Thanksgiving holiday.

    As an international traveling food critic and unbeknownst to the staff, the following is what I experienced: + Reservations made on Open Table. Even with a change one hour prior to reservation time, they were flawless. + Hostesses were very welcoming and personable. + Darryl B provided the finest service we have encountered in many years! His demeanor, attitude, and service was outstanding, which shows he clearly has the establishment's interest at heart. + Very pleasurable atmosphere near the kitchen. + Superb care from the entire staff, which yielded a positive attitude to do what's right for the customer and the business model. + Extremely high quality food in every aspect. Compliments to the head Chef, the Sous-Chef, and his entire kitchen staff, including the the Backers and Bus'ers. + Valet staff were professional and efficient. If you are in the area and don't take the time to dine here, you missed out on a superb experience.

    The Capital Grille never disappoints and this was another great dining experience. We like to eat in the bar area because of the ambiance and excellent service. I tried the Sam’s mashed potatoes for the first time and they were delicious. I’m from the south, so I’ve had a lot of good mashed potatoes, but these are the best I’ve ever had. The cheesecake at Capital Grille is also the best I’ve had anywhere.

    Typically Capital Grille is amazing. This time it was not. The restaurant was cold and the lighting was dark. The food was ok but not at the usual standard. The service was super slow and very disappointing. Waited 20 minutes for desert and finally just got it to go.

    Family celebration, 4 of us. Three meals were excellent and steaks cooked as asked. One person steak had to be returned 2x. She asked for medium and it was well done, not a shade of any pink at all. I know well done and it was. So the brought her another filet out and it was rare. 2 of us had medium rare and was perfect. Hers was “rare”. Needless to say she shared her fiancé steak and after sending back her steak 2 times, we were done her meal by time she got it. She took home disappointed. Anyways I bring business guests to Capital Grill all the time and always been very happy. And I note three of our meals were very good. But the one bad experience kind of ruined the moment of celebration, especially being the main course. Steak was the filet. Very subtle apology was all we we given. I’ll be back, Capital Grill just wiffed on this one experience.

    We were celebrating my birthday. The staff had confetti and a birthday card on the table. Our server was excellent, knowledgeable, polite. The food was excellent. I had lamb chops and my daughter had the filet. We also had their decadent mac & cheese, truffle fries, and cauliflower gratin. However, the dessert menu was seriously lacking. There is no ice cream available except for vanilla. The other desserts were very standard and nothing exciting. A flourless chocolate cake. A cheesecake. A crème brûlée. I think there was one other thing. In the past, when I have dined there for my birthday, regardless of whether dessert was ordered or not, they have always given us a plate with a couple little truffles or other bites on it. Nothing this time. That was the only minor disappointment. But we will definitely be back.

    Had the sear tenderloin medallions with poached lobster, medium rare. One medallion was done, no pink and the other was more medium. I did not eat the done one, did it the medium with lobster tails, it was plenty of food. Just a little disappointed for that value.

    Went for my husband’s birthday and this experience wasn’t as great as the one we had the month before. Our server was good but kind of…rude wouldn’t be the right word but short I would say. We had 5 guests. A few of us got the specials which price wise was great but my steak was underwhelming (unlike the month before) it was kind of dry. The lobster Mac and cheese was dry and for $23 that’s not cool at all. And the crème brûlée was soupy. Flavor was there but texture wise it wasn’t right.

From the personalized birthday card, I found on our table, to our enthusiastic, knowledgeable and charming waitress (Connie), to the amazing food, all made for a very memorable birthday celebration.

    The calamari with overcook, Steak was very chewy and tough Asparagus was very crunchy, mashed potatoes was bland. The blackberry cocktail was super sweet and kinda hard to drink. My wife lamb chops had a lot of fat on them but she said she like the flavor. The server was great but overall experience of the restaurant and don’t really have to go back there.
