We got a terrible table, so it ruined the ambiance for us. There shouldn’t be a table located where we sat. Honestly, I think they overbooked so stuck an extra table in. Basically, it was right in the entrance. For the price point of this restaurant, I would expect more.

We went to celebrate an anniversary. All seven of us were completely satisfied with everything. Most of us had one of the specials, bone in fillet or tomahawk ribeye. The food is to die for! The service was top notch and cocktails were great! This was not our first time here and it won’t be our last!

We went for Easter Brunch which was a pre fixed menu and all the things on the menu looked delicious, but we all had the fillet which were so good. I really like this place, from the valet to the wait staff all are nice and happy that you are dining with them. Plus delicious drinks and delicious food. We had a great time, thank you.

Excellent, casual midweek birthday celebration. Food and service both excellent. We were there early (6:30) on a weekday, so it was not very busy and, thus, quiet, but am guessing it is not too bad whenever, especially if you snag a nice booth. Not inexpensive, but cost/value ratio was good!

Booked a last minute birthday lunch for my Mum, literally 40 minutes before hand.

I selected the birthday option on opentable, but added no further details.

On arrival they had added birthday confetti to the table and a little card/note. I was so pleasantly surprised. Had I maybe planned in advance and called ahead to request I would have maybe expected this but not when booking through an app 40 minutes prior.

We had an excellent meal from the lunch menu, Mum had a set menu and I had a steak. All delicious food. We were stuffed, but then they kindly brought out a trio of desserts with a candle for my mum. (They had by this point established who’s birthday it was)

Exceptional service which exceeded expectations

Also worth noting there is free valet parking during the day it seems, I had steady paid for street parking

We’ll be back again

The Capital Grille and their entire Staff never fails to execute at the highest possible level. They treat their regular guests like family, and as evidenced by very low employee turnover, Internally they treat their staff well too.

The service was among the best I've ever had, anywhere. My filet mignon was impeccably prepared and melted in my mouth. My partner's steak did not especially impress her, though she thinks it might have been the cut, which she does not usually order. The calamari were the best we've ever had. Overall, it was a very nice experience and we'd recommend Capital Grille for anyone who wants an "extra fancy" dining experience.

Dined on 3/15/18 for a delayed Valentine/pre-anniversary dinner. The food and service was excellent, Sophia's service was outstanding as usual. It was nice to have Jennifer(GM) and Chef Ryan stop at the table several times during dinner to check on our dining experience. We will definitely be back.

The food was tremendous! The steak just melted in my mouth! The lobster bisque was superb (and I’m from New England), and the calamari was to die for!

Very pleasurable experience all around. Only thing that could be better here were the prices. It’s a high end experience that comes with the high end prices.

This is my go to spot for girls night out as the food is great and so is the ambiance. However, I was disappointed with this visit as the service is usually impeccable (this adds to the experience) but this time not so much. Our server was not very helpful or attentive when asking for assistance with recommended entrees and was not very personable. My friend and I also felt rushed to leave as she kept coming to our table asking to box things and left the bill on our table without asking if we were done or desired to order anything else. I feel that our service should have been a lot better considering the $170 bill for 2 people. As stated, great place with great food and usually good service but this time our waitress was just not up to par.

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.
