Excellent dining experience before going to the Orpheum Theater. It is great the valet will keep your car until after the play.

Generous pour event

Everything was perfect tonight. Been to capital grille many times including previous generous poor and they nailed it tonight. Steak was best I have ever had. Food was best I ever had it. They were perfect tonight. Tom in Minneapolis and the team did an amazing job.

Great service, great food—always the best. They truly understand how to properly mix a drink and the food is always amazing. Possibly my favorite place in Minneapolis!

We've had the steak and the salmon on other occasions so tonight we tried the lamb, it was excellent. My wife and I each had a salad and we split a main course and one side. That was plenty for us.

Had dinner sitting at the bar prior to attending Rent.
Mike provided fabulous service and was great about recommending wine to go with the scallops.
Scallops were amazing, parsnip purée is delicious!

This was my first experience at The Capital Grille. I am a Darden employee at Olive Garden in Roseville so I’ve heard good things about this restaurant. The food was fantastic and the service was even better. Ryan was our server and he really made the experience as amazing as I wanted it to be. We will be returning in the future, and Ryan has a lot to do with that. As well as the amazing food, drinks, and the overall ambience

The ribeye was very fatty and bland tasting. Not worth $58 by any means. Honestly, a No Name steak from the local grocery store tastes much better. The mashed potatoes were really good. The scallops and desert were pretty good. The best part was our server. She was excellent!

Capital Grille is always the same....spot on perfect. I have eaten at hundreds of steak houses around the US and although the inside can look a little dated and dark but you simply can't beat the steak. The service is also excellent.

Dinner for two.
Table bread: cracker was not crisp all the way through the chew, humidity?
Two drinks:
Lemon Drop (small & expensive) not as good as Ocean Air
Mohito classic, too much mint, odd taste
Appetizer:
Calamari very good
Salad:
Pear Gorgonzola, used yellow iceberg lettuce instead of fresh greens, the pear was cooked and mushy instead of crisp slices very odd
Dinner:
porterhouse 20oz excellent, too rare for my friend
NY Strip au poivre, excellent but I found the course ground pepper crust a bit overwhelming. I would order the regular strip next time
Side:
Asparagus. Small, not bright green nor crunchy , disappointed
Desert:
Coconut pie : outstanding
Cheesecake crem brûlée’s very good
To go: Lobster Mac & cheese
Total $262 + tip =$300
Valet $12 + tip = $17
Will need to work some overtime to pay this off.

Great service and amazing food. There was a mistake with our side dish that they were upfront about and didn’t even charge us for it (we didn’t complain or anything). Great place to head before a show for a classy dining experience!

We were there for our anniversary and spent over $300.00 on dinner but what was upsetting was what has become of the elegance and atmosphere inside.

Kids running in the restaurant interrupting other diners. Parents were not managing them.

We were dressed for a special evening out and they used to require appropriate attire but not any longer I guess.

We have used this extensively for business in the past because of the ability to have a conversation in a quiet atmosphere but will not use it any longer.

Capital Grille was one of the last fabulous spots in Minneapolis that you could depend on. Very sad.

I put yes, I'd recommend The Capital Grille but with a caviot. Be prepared to spend money! The noise level could be lower. I could hardly hear my dinner mate talk.

We ate on a high top in the bar for a new experience- trying to be more casual. I enjoyed this table and the wait staff. I am still bummed about the prices, but it's always a very good meal.

The steak was cooked to perfection and so flavorful. The restaurant was not packed, but it was a bit hard to hear. Otherwise, it was a first class dining experience.

It's hit and miss at Capital Grille. Food and service have been outstanding in past. This time, service was pretty good--he didn't check in as much as expected. My friend's steak was WAY underdone--an expensive bone-in steak. Had to send it back. My other friend's steak was somewhat overdone--also a bone-in. My steak was very good. Regardless, it's a little embarrassing to bring guests to a fancy steak restaurant expecting outstanding meats and then not get them cooked properly. Also this time, the carmelized brussels sprouts was overcooked. Disappointing. We'd come to Capital given an only margin experience (rare, too) at Manny's. Guess we'll try Butcher and Boar next time.

One of my favorite restaurants ever! Capital Grille doesn't disappoint and all the staff - especially our server, Michael - were wonderful. It's really a special-occasion place, due to the prices, but the pampering and the experience make it a great place to celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, and other significant events! The food is amazing and they are more than willing to modify most dishes to address dietary needs and tastes. The sea bass was perfection and the steaks are incredible. The wine list is extensive and highly rated. I'm already looking forward to my next opportunity enjoy the Capital Grille!

We had a wonderful evening at the Capital Grille! Our server, Lauren, was just excellent. She made some great suggestions. Our dinners were absolutely delicious...perfectly cooked and beautifully served. This is our second time here, and both visits have been great. We would highly recommend eating here. We look forward to coming again.

I can't remember how many years we have been going to the Capital Grill for our anniversary - but its somewhere in the 15 years in a row range. Love the food, the ambiance and the staff. Michael was our waiter, and was outstanding. We expect great service from the Capital Grill and this year was no exception. We ALWAYS recommend the CG as the best steak in town.
We love the generous pour promotion. Please keep this going.
