The Capital Grille is always top notch. Expensive but worth it, I would say. Try to go early. It gets crowded and noisy after 7pm.

I request my steak cooked at Medium temperature but they sent out two well done steaks. I made sure to inform the waiter, Peter ( who’s service was amazing as he went far and beyond to make my experience as beautiful as possible) that my steak was prepared incorrectly. He offered to redo the steak but I had already eaten a decent portion. Overall the experience was that of other Capital Grille’s I have vistes across the country. I will definitely return to this location whenever I visit Milwaukee.

First time visit. Expectations were admittedly high. We had a reservation and received notice that our table was ready via text 5 mins before (a cool feature) but when we arrived we still waited 10 minutes for our table in the lobby. Overall the food was very good, notable even. Preparation was to our liking. The host was attentive to the notes about our gluten free guests and brought appropriate menus. Only one side dish arrived incorrectly at the table, but the team caught it early and apologized and made the appropriate accommodations for their mistake. We were a little underwhelmed with our server, but she did a decent job. For such high rankings, I think we expected to be blown away, but personally I would trade the personal touch hospitality of family-run steakhouses in Milwaukee over my experience here, this time. Nothing left me with the feeling that this was extraordinarily better than its local competition.

Honestly, I was disappointed. Our evening started with a drink at the bar, my husband ordered a high-end whisky which was served to him in a glass hot out the dishwasher. When he politely asked to have it replaced, the bartender poured the now-warmed whisky into another glass in front of us and set it down. Not wanting to drink the warmed whisky, he decided to not make a fuss and just leave it on the bar when we went to our table. The bartender actually then brought the abandoned drink to our table and set it down in front of my husband without a word and left.

Our waiter was very nice but very inexperienced and it appears poorly trained. He seemed in over his head, and the tempo of our dinner was a bit off as a result. My coffee was cleared before I was finished drinking it without asking me if I was done.

All in all, really not what I’d expect for the price and the advertising. I don’t think we’ll be back.

Unfortunately our waitress made us feel very uncomfortable and out of place. I am 24 and went on a double date to celebrate my promotion at work, the waitress treated us like we were not entitled enough to be eating there and acted as if we were beneath her. It was very unfortunate, I was embarrassed to have picked that restaurant to celebrate. The food was amazing as always, when I go here with my parents I never have this issue. We still left a generous tip to hopefully sway her from acting that way towards younger customers, probably won’t be back till I’m in my 30s!

Fabulous meal. We made the reservation at the last minute and we were not dressed as we normally would be when going out. We had been helping our daughter move all day and had on shorts and tennis shoes but we were not made to feel out of place at all. Great service as usual. We love Capital Grille!

We dined at Capital Grill during restaurant week. The menu offerings were diverse and everyone in our group enjoyed their entrees ( the Kona rubbed steak, fillet, and salmon). One in our party has a severe allergic reaction to anchovies and checked with our waiter to make sure they were not present in the salad dressing and our waiter noted that in her order but it was missed in the kitchen. The Chef noticed the order and knowing there was a small amount of anchovies in the dressing, came out to inquire about the patron’s reaction and went across the street to get her Benadryl. When he returned he spent a great deal of time talking to her and making sure she was ok. We were all so impressed that he caught the error and responded so quickly and helpfully to make certain she was ok. Additionally, our waiter kept checking back to make sure she was ok. Our waiter was funny and attentive. What could have been a terrible evening turned out to be just the opposite.
