    Had a reservation and we were seated within in 5 minutes of our groups arrival. The food was excellent!! The lobster bisque is a must any time you go there. Everything was cooked to perfection. We will definitely go there again.

    Thanksgiving at Capital Grille was outstanding! The turkey was moist and delicious. The sweet potato casserole was so light and fluffy and delicious. I don’t think I’ve ever had better! The mashed potatoes were great. The desserts were divine! Plus, the portions were quite generous to where we practically had the equivalent of a whole other meal to take home. I would definitely do it again and I look forward to other meals at Capital Grille, especially since it was our first time there.

    We went for our 25th Anniversary and full disclosure did add that info to the reservation. We were warmly welcomed, there was a lovely card on our table wishing us well and cute heart confetti. Very nice! Our server Mark was down to earth and fun, gave us great recommendations, and treated us well. The NY strip was fine, not great, just fine. The scallops were amazing, lobster tail was over cooked. They brought us a delicious dessert and champagne to close things out which we enjoyed very much. Is Capital Grille the best steakhouse in town? No, but they do things well enough that we go back from time to time and after this visit that won't change.

    We had the bacon and the crab cake appetizers; both were excellent. I ordered the clam chowder next. It was extremely bland and not good at all, a theme that continued the rest of the evening. From there, we both ordered the Snake River Farms Wagyu New York strip, the bacon creamed corn, and the au gratin potatoes. The potatoes we very bland and unimpressive. They were covered with French’s crispy onion just like your go to green bean casserole for Thanksgiving. Not what I expect from a high quality steakhouse. The creamed corn was not cooked enough and served cool. The corn was way too crunchy for creamed corn and we sent it back for the lobster Mac and cheese. This was also bland and unimpressive, but much better than the raw corn. The Wagyu steak was as tender as you would expect but instead of seasoning the steak, the just put some butter on top. It very bland as well. This was the first time in my adult life I had to use the salt and pepper shakers on the table for a steak. Not worth the money at all. The cheese cake was actually great and the service was attentive. Unfortunately, the food is the worst I’ve had at a fine dining establishment. Or many regular establishments for that matter.

    Server needs more training. Crowded restaurant noise on a Friday night, why am I yelling my food order across the table. Then he got it wrong & needed to return. Four at table, we asked for more bread, didn’t bring butter. We ask for butter, another delay. Slow service on bar drinks. Offers the check to my niece at the table, didn’t ask who gets the check. Never saw a manager stopping by the table to check on us like they do in Tampa. Milwaukee you need help.

    This was a truly unforgettable evening. The Capital Grille not only serves the best food, but provides exceptional service that you can not find anywhere else. All the staff greeted my guest and I during our visit, treated us with respect and kindness, and made the dinner magical. My fiancée stated it was the best steak she ever had and I was equally impressed with the taste and quality. Peter and I believe Brianna (hope I spelled this correctly) were not only polite and courteous but went above and beyond to make our visit a one of a kind experience. We will certainly be back again without question, and will always recommend the fine establishment to any friends or family that are looking for a unique and special dining experience. Thank you to all the hard working staff!

Whether I’m in the lounge or requesting a special table, I feel like a VIP each and every time. The food is exquisite paired with the most amazing service. Love this place!

    Outstanding! My work colleague and I had dinner at Capital Grille in Milwaukee in early October. Definitely upscale dining. The service was stellar from the hostess to our servers. Angel was our head server. He was accommodating and very knowledgeable. He said he overheard my colleague saying "congratulations" and us toasting to my new job, so he brought us a free dessert plate. He really went above and beyond. We each had the wedge salad and steaks for dinner. The steaks were cooked to our liking and wonderful flavor. I would highly recommend visiting.

    Dining at The Capital Grille is always wonderful. But my wife and I celebrated our anniversary this time, as well, and the restaurant management and staff made it very special with a congratulations note and confetti to start, a “Happy Anniversary!” dessert and even a champagne toast. We had a great evening! The meal was outstanding, as always, but the experience overall could not have been any better or more warm and celebratory. Thank you!
