My lunch visit with my mom for her birthday was excellent. She had the mushroom bisque soup with signature cheeseburger and fries, while I had the usual lobster bisque and filet mignon with the best mashed potatoes anywhere. The service was friendly and efficient as well. If there was any small complaint, it would be that I always request the filet mignon au poivre style with cream that is usually only served at dinner. When the hostess confirmed my reservation the day prior, she said it was on my profile and would not be a problem. This is the second time I have arrived and requested it and it was still not available which creates an awkward scene. The waiter said to ask to speak to the chef directly in advance. In all honesty, it is the staff’s responsibility to make sure this is communicated - hopefully next time.

My wife and I have had dinner at Capital Grille 3 times now. Each experience has been absolutely perfect. Never have I dined at a restaurant where I could find absolutely nothing wrong. It has become our favorite dinner restaurant and we’ve even gotten take-out (yes, they do take-out) of their Lobster Mac and Cheese. I’ve had dinner at all of the best restaurants in Memphis and Capital Grille is by far the best of the best.

Underwhelmed. For Memphis' finest steakhouse, I'd choose the other chain northeast of Capital Grille. Seated by 8:10, ordered by 8:45, didn't get entrees until 10. Trouble getting out of there. Weren't able to leave until 11PM. Seems controllable.

My family and I absolutely love dining here. The ambiance is wonderful and the food is always amazing. We celebrate often at Capital Grille in Memphis, and on this day we celebrate our annual Christmas Eve family dinner. I esteem my family very highly, and only want the best for them. Therefore, I would only celebrate them in the finest locations. We have celebrated many holidays, birthdays, and my youngest daughter was engaged here!

I applaud your team of great hosts, servers, and chefs for creating wonderful memories for my family and I on many occasions.

Dined at Capital Grille for anniversary, experience was outstanding. Great food and service, honored us with a long-stem rose, complimentary glass of champagne, special seating and special dessert. EVERYONE in the restaurant stopped at our table to wish us Happy Anniversary. Managing partner Sarah was awesome.

Came in early afternoon and was seated in the bar area. The waiter and bartender were very distracted, and continued to forget about us. We had to ask for everything, including our check. Good food however, just they were off, in between shifts, and we continued to handed off to the next person. For a $200 lunch, I would have expected much better attention regardless of the time of day.

We celebrated an anniversary there. They made us feel so special with heart confetti and a rose on the table. Brought us 2 glasses of champagne to start our celebration. We had oyster appetizer and lobster bisque. Both were wonderful. Main dish was king crab legs and a dry aged New York strip. Shared a fantastic bottle of wine. Ended the evening with a delicious chocolate dessert. Loved our evening here!

Our waitress, Christina went above and beyond during our visit. My 8 year old is very picky and will not try new foods. Christina made sure she found something my daughter would enjoy.
We were celebrating two birthdays that night and the table was decorated for the occasion. The special touches meant a lot.

I eat here often but the Friday after Thanksgiving wasn't good. The worst meal I've had at the Capital Grille. Calamari very salty, steak & lobster over cooked and not a very flavorful bone-in rib eye. GM & waiter made a very good attempt at service recovery.

We found ourselves in Memphis on Thanksgiving Day with no plans. The list of restaurants that were open was limited. We chose The Capital Grille because it offered a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. However, when we got there, we could not bring ourselves to eat turkey with all of the delicious steaks on offer. Among us at the table, we had a wedge salad, a filet, and the surf and turf (it may have had a different name on the menu). For dessert, we split the creme brûlée. All of it was absolutely wonderful! I can highly recommend the “In Fashion” cocktail, even though I hate cutesy names for drinks.

Enjoyed a fantastic meal on our last night in Memphis which was also our first time dining at Capitol Grille. Service was impeccable and the appetizer (calamari) and entrees (filet &lobster for my wife and the Kona rubbed rib eye for me) were all to die for! Shared the Parmesan truffle fries and grilled asparagus and couldn’t finish it all. Wow -wow -wow! Highly recommend.
