Overall the food was good. Calamari appetizer was excellent, steaks were cooked perfectly, but lacking a bit in seasoning. Sides were good - roasted mushrooms were lacking in flavor. Our waiter, Milton, did an outstanding job. So many great steakhouses - this is one of the pricey ones, but the food didn’t exactly wow us.

Had an superb dinner here for my birthday! The food was outstanding and the service was top-notch! Only wish is that the place was not so dark. I know most steak places go for that dark, woodsy look, but I still don't like it! And finally, while the experience was excellent, it was expensive. When all was said and done (including tip), bill was just a shade under $200 for two people.

Our server was the bartender, I believe because she wasn’t wearing the traditional tan coat. So we believe the lunch was under staffed. She was very pleasant and nice. We ordered the filet mignon 8oz medium rare and it was over cooked. Our server did spot it right away and had it remade. It seemed though that another table may have received the remade filet. Due to the time it took to receive the second filet. The rest our our food was already cold and the second filet we received was under cooked and charred on the outside. The chef was serving our food and they were very apologetic about the first steak bring cooked incorrectly but with the second steak coming as it was we gave up and said it was fine. My steak was the 14 oz NY strip and it was cooked perfect. My lobster tail shell was burnt and the tail did not lay straight on my plate. One side was slightly chewier than the other. Our appetizer of the calamari was delicious and we loved it. Was disappointed with the steak and this is our second visit. We most likely will try another restaurant next year and for our up coming anniversary. Service is wonderful just disappointed with the steaks.

We have been here before and have had great experiences but this time was not even close to good. Two items that we ordered came out at room temperature, one was lobster. We had them sent back and the staff was very apologetic. What seemed odd was that it was not like the food was sitting at a warmer and didn't get picked up, it was not cooked properly to begin with. It came out very fast after we ordered.
I wouldn't recommend this place since there are many other really nice steak places around and this was certainly not worth the cost. At this cost I would expect a much better experience.

The service and food was excellent. Our server (Sara) was incredibly accommodating, above and beyond what is usually expected. When I said I couldn’t decide between French Onion Soup and a Caesar’s Salad she quickly said that she would ask the chef to do 1/2 portions of each! Everything was great, we’ll be back again!

Chef was not pleased with how his first order of king crab legs were (too many knuckles he said) so he brought an additional two king crab legs. Waiter cracked open and removed meat from shells on first order that was a little s difficult to crack open. My friends girlfriends lamb chops were amazing. Good service and wine list. They carry “The Prisoner” by the glass and bottle !!
Third visit to Capital Gill MKE and would return.

Went for New Year's Eve, dinner for 7. We were early for our reservation, however they kept us waiting past our reservation time even though the table they say us at was open. Not much room in the bar to mingle. Once seated, the pace of the dinner was good, our waiter was attentive but nothing beyond the norm. Food was ok, but the fillets were very bland but very tender. Tna and chicken we're good, and I was told the mushroom soup was out of this world fantastic. All in all, acceptable but won't go back as nothing special. Valet was an added bonus in the bitter cold, and the guys were great, all upbeat, friendly and helpful.

Absolutely outstanding from the moment we walked in the door. Sofia was one of the best servers I have ever had. She was very pleasant, mindful of our needs and overall excellent. Food was exquisite as was the wine. Would highly recommend for any occasion. Plus they let us keep our car in valet while we went to a show so we did not have to struggle to park downtown on a busy evening. A+ on everything!!!
