Place was wonderful. Staff was helpful. Food was amazing. Sea bass was obscenely tasty. We had Brian N. As our server. He was knowledgeable personable and accommodating. 10/10 would go again and we will be asking for Brian.

I had sea bass which was probably the best that I have ever had. My husband had a bone-in filet that was also outstanding! Safe and friendly staff.

We love Capital Grille. Food is always consistently delicious, wait staff is very attentive and not overbearing. The restaurant was pretty empty when we were there, almost felt like a private event.

We visited on Christmas Eve and had a later reservation as that was all that was open. We felt rushed through our dinner. It was not relaxing as we had hoped it would be. We were seated in a back room that did not have much ambience compared to the main dining area. The food was good but for the price of the steaks we felt the 2 ribeye's that we ordered were thin and a bit underwhelming. The lobster bisque was the highlight of the meal.

The Capital Grille does an absolute outstanding job at making special occasions “special”. They define customer service at the highest level. Nicholas, our server, was above and beyond and will go far. He is truly an asset to the establishment and should be recognized as so. Kudos to outperforming the standard of delicious food, delightful atmosphere, and outstanding customer service. Will be back- time and time again. Thanks!

Social distancing intact. The service was prompt and the food was very good. Prices were fair and there were no extra COVID charges. Only thing that I noticed was the valet service is temporarily suspended so you have to find your own parking and bar seating was limited to 6 bar stools but the side tables are still in place.

After a bad NYE experience I thought we'd give Capital Grille another shot. With COVID and my wife's birthday being on a Monday my choices were limited on restaurants too.

Our experience this time was about 175 degrees different than our last. Waiter was great, personable, accommodating and professional. However, being at 25% capacity we found service of the food slow. That and my lobster being under-cooked for my taste was the only detraction from the evening. Steaks were perfect. All of the dishes came to the table hot. The manager visited to wish my wife a happy birthday as did a couple other of the staff. On the way out the chef took time for a short conversation about their use of Strauss Brand veal throughout the company.

They've redeemed themselves. The bill for two was $210. One 8oz filet, one filet and lobster, two cocktails, a house salad, au gratin potatoes and a baked potato. The restaurant provided a very nice desert for my wife's birthday.

Expected the bill amount. Normal for the class of restaurant these days that seems to trying to make up for the lost business due to COVID but... it is what it is.

They're back to being recommended.

The couple times I’ve visited Capital Grille have exceeded my expectations. Every aspect of the experience has been exemplary. The staff was overly friendly and accommodating when trying to find specific wines and gave information on where to find a previously stocked bottle they no longer carry. Our server Mark was great at making dinner recommendations as well. A+ service!

Our third time back to the Capital Grill since our daughter began school at Marquette. Simply outstanding! We've tried other top rated restaurants in the area, and no other has compared to the CG. The food is exceptional! The service is second to none. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. No doubt it's pricey, but well worth it!

It was me and my husband’s 16th year being together. We had an awesome experience at the Milwaukee location. Our waiter was Mark and the whole vibe was excellent. The food was outstanding! They decorated the tables, left us a very nice card and gave us a really nice desert. We can not wait to go back.
