    Prices are insane! We paid 12.00 for what was advertised as a “crock” of French onion soup. We were served a small cup of soup, we weren’t happy with this. My wife ordered a filet, prepared medium. It was served blood rare and had to go back for additional cooking. This disrupted the flow of our meal. A steak place should be able to produce a medium steak without fail. No comps of any type were offered or requested on our part. We won’t be back! Very sad deterioration of a once great restaurant.

    The food was fantastic. We were there for our anniversary and they made extra effort to make sure it was special for us. The seating next to the open kitchen maybe wasn’t ideal, it added a bit of background noise. Overall a good experience and we’d consider coming back.

    The filet was so tender that my wife cut it with her fork. The flour less chocolate cake was full of flavor. The lobster bisque was delicious.

    We have been here a few times and it has always been great. We came for downtown dining week and the steak was dry and tasteless as well as the sides had little flavor. The salad was overdressed and the dessert was fine.

    Service was excellent! From the initial greeting of the hostess who indulged in our sense of humor, to our kind, attentive server, Neomi; followed by Tammy, the manager, resolving an e-payment issue (yes! dishwashing avoided). Everyone was on point in creating a great birthday dinner celebration!

    Always a great steak. Dependable. I wouldn’t get the same entree as the flavor wasn’t too my liking (sliced filet with mushrooms was very sweet); but everything else was very good.

    It was our 47th wedding anniversary and we came to The Capital Grille for dinner to celebrate. It was perfect, from the time we walked in the door and were seated and the wait staff was marvelous. Thru to the amazing dessert we were taken care of so well we can’t wait to return! We will definitely be there for any occasion to celebrate and definitely for our 50th when we would love to entertain our family of 14. I highly recommend The Capital Grille! ❤️

    The table seem to enjoy their meals. However, the guests who had salmon found the fish not cooked to their liking. It appeared to be fairly undercooked to the point one did not eat the fish.

    The Capitol Grill never dissapoints. The service is friendly yet professional. Well made cocktails and an extensive wine list. The food is always cooked to perfection and portions enough to share for us so we can have salad and sides and dessert! Steaks are done as requested and delicious!!

    Went there for their annual Generous Pour event, a chance to taste great wines at a low cost. Had tuna tartare app, was great! Then Kona crusted steak and surf & turfs. Service was great (thank you Cassandra), nice quiet room. CG is consistently good year after year after year, which is why it is our go-to steak house.

    The wait staff was absolutely wonderful. And I’m so glad even the back waiters interacted with us and all had a very happy, personable demeanor. It was my birthday so there was a lovely card waiting on my table as well as some confetti. The food was wonderful. However, anytime there is lobster bisque on the menu, I am always sure to order it. This bowl was very good but definitely not the best. I cannot tell you why, I just know that I have had better. We also ordered the Seabass which was lovely. Mashed potatoes, spinach with garlic confit and brussels sprouts were all tasty. In for dessert, my favorite, flowerless chocolate cake, was divine. This was definitely one of the better ones I’ve had.
