New years eve dinner. Clearly the kitchen was somewhat overwhelmed. French onion soup delivered luke-warm. Eventually sent back to be reheated (which is precisely what occurred, taking nearly 20-mins). Steak (2-pieces) was cooked inconsistently, due to significant thickness differential between the pieces. Lobster tail overcooked. Overall, mediocre food quality, poorly executed at this price point.

Very good - especially considering it was New Years Eve. Great cocktails. Steak was slightly over-cooked but still very good. Server, Angel, was excellent!

Food was pretty good didn’t get much attention by server till about the end when I had to pay. Noticed other tables server would actually engage in conversation with guests it was me and my fiancé we went to the restaurant for an early New Years celebration and we felt she was a little un enthusiastic maybe because we’re younger other than that the food was good and desert was great.

Steak had to be sent back-so rare blood was running out. 2of the ribeyes were too charred and way overdone. Wait staff was outstanding but we went to the restaurant for a great dinner and birthday celebration. Disappointing.

Outstanding service by Suzy and the other servers that pitched in. Tammy runs a great restaurant where the food is superb and despite it being one the busiest holiday nights they manage to get everyone to their tables on time and the food delivered all at once regardless of the group size. This is our special location restaurant 5 years in a row where the staff remembers you despite the 12 month gaps in between visits.

WENT FOR THANKSGIVING. THE RESTAURANT TO BE FAIR WAS PACKED BUT THEN AGAIN, ALL THE CAPITAL GRILLES I HAVE BEEN TO ARE ALWAYS PACKED ESPECIALLY CHICAGO AND ORLANDO. THE BARTENDERS WERE DEFINITLEY BEHIND THE CURVE AS DRINKS CAME OUT SLOW. THE WAITER WE HAD WAS "OVER HIS HEAD" IN SERVICING HIS TABLES. FOOD CAME OUT SLOW. ONLY 1 WAITER FOR THE TABLE. SHELLFISH TOWER-NO TABASCO OR CLAW-CRACKERS FOR THE LOBSTER. WRONG SOUP BROUGHT AND TOO LONG TO RETURN WITH RIGHT ONE. ASED FOR MORE BREAD THAT NEVER CAME. ENTREES, VEAL CHOP AND SWORDFISH WERE EXCELLENT. DESERTS WERE MEDIOCRE ESPECIALLY THE COCONUT CREAM PIE. THEY TRIED TO RE-INVENT THE PIE AND IT FELL FLAT. NOTE TO CHEF, JUST GO WITH THE ORIGINAL AND DELICOUS CREAMY COCONUT CUSTARD CREAM PIE. ALL IN ALL, GREAT FOOD BUT STAFF WAS DEFINITELY OVERWHELMED AND I DONT THINK THEY ARE USED TO THAT IN MILWAUKEE....
