Attended for my wedding anniversary and had a great experience!
Candice, our server was attentive and personable. The ambiance was great. The small details like the champagne, desert. And anniversary cars was top notch. I know the restaurant industry has taken a hit during COVID, but The Capital Grille exceeded our expectations with their safety and service. Can't wait to return! Order the sea bass, you won't be disappointed@!

We got stuck in traffic due to a freeway accident. We called and said wed be late. It was a 30 minute delay and they were terrific about letting us dine. The cocktails were great, the mozzarella appetizer was delicious, and our water glasses were always filled. The sides were great: had the potatoes augratin, the mushrooms, and the sautéed spinach. Our steaks were prepared perfectly. We received a surprise and amazing birthday dessert. Our server was friendly and did a great job for us. Everyone should dine here.!

Dinner was very good and the service was outstanding.

You have a sign by the front door, but apparently your dress policy is not enforced?
You allow hats, ripped jeans etc? Backward hats at that?

Why have the policy?
We came out to a very nice restaurant expecting others to treat the experience the same way.

The worst meal I’ve had at a steakhouse in years. My first experience was the valet. The gentleman never came, so we parked it ourselves. Which didn’t end up being a problem cause a spot opened up right in front of the restaurant. When we left he told us that he was the only on working. Explainable.
For our meal, we order two 8 ounce fillets medium well with a half order of potatoes au gratin and a side of the brussels sprouts. Our steaks were dry. I only ate about an ounce of mine and my friend ate about 3 ounces of hers. We sent the potatoes back because they came out burnt. Brussels sprouts no flavor. The only thing we put in a doggy bag was 2 ounces of a fillet for a dog. Waste of money. When my friend and I were walking out we both said the same time we would never come back again.

We really enjoyed our meal, we did the wine pairing tasting for the evening called the generous pour, and Aaron was our server, he is the best. If you have a choice please choose Aaron you will not be disappointed. Also the specials were fantastic my wife got the bone in fillet and I had the tomahawk veal steak. As for the lobster bisque.

I brought my grandson for a celebratory meal before he goes away to College next week.
I’ve been to Capital Grille many times, and always enjoyed it, but every once in a while things just don’t come together properly
My burger was overcooked, and salty. More importantly my grandson really enjoyed himself.
Our server was most accommodating and very gracious. I never mentioned the issues I had with my food to her.
We will be back when the opportunity presents itself, but today I’m afraid things are a bit off.

Never actually got my steak. Ordered Medium Rare…steak one was oddly well done (completely gray, no question) except for a small part in the dead center that was medium. Sent it back. Second steak was actually still cold inside. Servers clarify medium well as “warm red center”….it was literally no more than 45° in the center, not close to warm or even cool.

Server was clearly a perpetual participation trophy winner all her life as she completely shut down when I complained. She clearly has never faced any criticism even though this was all aimed at the kitchen staff for not knowing how to cook a steak in a steakhouse.

Tammy the manager is horrendous and is not qualified to be in front of customers. I have never experienced this kind of rudeness especially considering I wasn’t cooking the steaks.

I will never return but if you must go here do ourself a favor and request Susie as your server…she will work incredibly hard to make sure your experience is as good as possible. Hopefully the kitchen can cook a steak by then.
