We had an average experience. We have been several times in the past and this seemed to be not as great of an experience. Food was fine but the service has been better in the past.

Great service and a perfectly cooked meal. The new Tuna app is great. They prepared it with the spicy sauce on the side for my wife.

We had a wonderful dinner at Capital Grille. The cast iron shrimp was delicious, our steaks were perfectly cooked, and our cocktails (Fire & Ice and Grapefruit Buck) were so good! Our server was great. We will definitely be back :)

We went last week Friday for my birthday and it was our 2nd time there. Capital Grille out did themselves by decorating our table, gave a dessert platter with Happy Birthday written in chocolate, gave a red rose and even a birthday card. They made me feel really special.

Food and service wonderful as always. Delicious mashed potatoes with goat cheese and cranberry reduction with filet. They are so accommodating making my husband the spinach salad even though it's no longer on the menu. Nice surprise was creme brûlée for our anniversary!

Very good, typical steak house meal. I had a porterhouse and my guest the filet. Both were what you'd expect from a good steak place. Service was I bit less than attentive given that it was a slow night. All in all we were happy, but not really a top tier steak house.

Valet parking is awesome
Dark, comfortable room with quite a taxidermy collection.
Music too loud, but noise level otherwise was ok.
Good service
Cocktails perfect.
We had steak and lobster. The steak was excellent and the lobster as well. However they each arrived at the table all alone on their plates. For $105 for the two entrees, a more attractive plating is expected.
Coconut cream pie for desert with outstanding coffee ended the meal.

We will return for more?

Food was great and the really accommodated my 11 yr old who can be a picky eater. Only real issue was that the calamari looked like it was frozen and just stuck in a deep fryer. Tasted fine but lacked originality.
Other issue, which is not unique to this Capitol Grille, is that the portion size of the meal (beef most particularly) is so large that you cannot really take advantage of a great dessert menu.

This was the first time we had such a large party with us (12) and Capital Grille did not disappoint! Everyone and everything was amazing! Our server Bryan was incredible and everyone that assisted was also great! Not to mention the food and cocktails which were second to none! A big thank you to the kitchen staff and the front of the house for making this such a memorable time!

4th time there. First three, VG-Excell., this one not so good. Service uneven. 3-4 servers, but each one would only do what their job required them to do. Example: Entrees were brought out, no steak knives for all 4 of us. Asked for them-waited at least 2-3 minutes, regular server comes over to see if we needed anything, we then got the knives. Same with drinks. Salads were good, bisque had chewy lobster and tasted odd. Reserv. were at 5;30, told them our show was at 8:00. ten min. walk away. Entrees didn.t arrive till 6:50 to 7:00. did not complete eating until 7:25. No time for dessert. Again-right hand didn't tell the left hand what was going on. Staff very friendly, but at times clueless.
For these prices, I expect consistency and more professionalism, especially when compared to the three previous times there.
