My husband & I were PLANNING to meet our sister in law & her friends for dinner before the latter took a Pearl Cruise. Unfortunately, my husband broke his foot that same morning and those who were flying to MKE from DFW were delayed. My husband and I couldn’t attend due to his injury but the “late” Texas arrivals pronounced Capital Grille “delicious”.

Birthday celebration. There was a happy birthday card on the table and decorations on the table cloth. Such a wonderful special touch. Troy was our server and he was outstanding. And the food was spectacular. I will most definitely recommend this place and I will be here again. It was a lovely experience!

We are regularly visiting at Capital Grille. Usually our waiter notes the allergies. The person that served us appeared to not understand what our needs were. We waiting extremely long for our dinner plat (scallops) without an explanation of what the delay was.

The Capital Grill is a go to restaurant when we are in Milwaukee. Location is walking distance from hotels and the convention center or an easy Uber ride. We made our reservation on Open table and had a short wait in the bar before our table was ready because we arrived early. Drinks were excellent and generous. Our party of 6 was seated at a great table and Tony was our server. He was new but knowledgeable on the menu and specials as well as helpful suggestions. Wine list is available on iPad or printed, although the printed copy needed updating. The manager stood in for a sommelier and she was very familiar with their extensive wine selection. Food was presented beautifully and prepared perfectly. I loved my perfectly cooked, medium rare filet. Sides are meant to be shared and are huge. I loved the creamed spinach as well as the fresh asparagus. Service was friendly and efficient but not rushed. Atmosphere was quiet but not hushed. We had another great experience at The Capital Grill, Milwaukee and will return again when we are in town.

Staff was attentive - meal was good - although I will add that when stating the "specials" the price should also be stated - just as it is on the menu. It will avoid the sticker shock.

Not the best place for vegetarians. Do ask what they can fix that's not on the menu. I had a delicious tofu stir fry with soy ginger glaze.

Delay I ordering and receiving wine. First, server brought a 2014 vintage instead of 2015 which was ordered saying they were out of 1015. Sent it back and ordered a different bottle. Took 45 minutes to get a bottle of wine ($158.00). Otherwise service was just ok. Not great.

Staff was very accommodating for a birthday. We were there to celebrate one birthday, but it was close to another birthday in our group and they gave us two complementary desserts. It made it very special for both people with birthday's.
