Father’s Day. The meal and time together with my Godparents was a winning combination. The Capital Grille atmosphere and dynamic wait staff always make our dining experience spectacular! TCG is my benchmark for critiquing other fine dining restaurants. TCG IS THE BEST!!! Love the food and staff.

Enjoyed the special $35 dinner menu for great night out.
Food is always great here and loved the addition of Lobster Bisque for an appetizer.
One of our favorite places to go!

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.

Normally, I find the food excellent. This visit was a bit disappointing. Of course, it was the Downtown Dining menu, so perhaps that is why.

Best value overall for downtown dining. Came here for a long overdue girls' dinner. Great ambiance, food was amazing, although my friend had to ask for her steak to be cooked a bit longer. Larissa was great!

The quality of the food here is always top-notch. We did have a rare experience with the waiter taking the wrong appetizer order (and it was off the Downtown Dining menu, so there were only a couple items) so we were brought the wrong item, and then when the correct item was finally brought, they had the wrong salad dressing on it. Beyond that, it was a typically strong experience.

Food was amazing. Service was not what we experienced pre-pandemic, which is understandable but still a little disappointing. Overall, staff did great job, food was absolutely delicious. The only thing lacking was the banter with the hosts and servers, who were all professional but not interested in going above and beyond like before. Notes that were left via opentable were accommodated but the special occasion aspect went unnoticed.

We went to celebrate two graduates and they were spoiled by Capital Grille. A card on the table awaiting both of them, and a beautiful dessert with Congratulations written in chocolate. Food and service were exceptional. This is a must do in Milwaukee.

Service was the highlight of the evening. The martini and other cocktails were very good. I love the peppers mixed in with the calamari. Bone in NY was great. And the scalloped paotaties melt in your mouth.
