    I have been a customer of Capital Grill for more than 30 years. Overall this was the worst experience I've had in the hundreds of times I have dined at the Capital Grille. As usual the food was excellent and our server was fabulous, beyond attentive. But the noise level allowed by other diners was terrible. We were surrounded by people playing games on phones and playing loud movies. The ambience was awful. It was totally destroyed. The capital Grille has traditionally been a high quality, high ambience restaurant. The ambience has been destroyed and, as judged by my experience yesterday, it is hardly any better than McDonald's. The restaurant must stop customers playing speaking on phones and playing loud videos or music. If this is the new Capital Grille, then I will no longer be a customer.

    Very disappointed in our experience for five people. Ordered 3 Filet Oscars Medium Rare, one came out medium rare, the others were medium/medium well and very well done. The other two diners also had steaks that were very overcooked, again ordered medium rare but at least one showed up well done. For $70 steaks, this is completely unacceptable and an observant staff could have easily seen the overcooked meat. We were out with clients and didn't make an issue of the problem to avoid potential embarrassment for our out-of-town guests.

    We came in from out of town for a sisters weekend. We walked from our hotel in the rain so we ended up not being as dressed up as we would have liked. When we showed up the Maitre’d was AMAZING. He was so kind and engaging. There was a young man who was making us uncomfortable and the Maitre’d was so professional and we knew he was watching the entire situation. He sensed our discomfort and asked the young man to leave. We were definitely impressed with his professionalism and his kind efficiency.

    We came to grab a bite to eat in the bar after the Twins game which we have done many times in the past as we really enjoy dining here however since the change of the dress code which we completely respect.. just wish they would have put that on their web site prior to me making the reservation. I was treated rudely by the hostess as she told me I could not eat with my my hat on in the bar.. so we have decided we will stick to Oceanside, Manny’s and Murray’s from now on.. when their are sporting events downtown people dress for those! So disappointing and this was even before 6pm.

    First of all: Our waiter Jon S. provided excellent service, which made our dinner experience very enjoyable. Jon is a very knowledgeable waiter, and helped us pick very good wine selections, and dinner choices. Ordered: Nueske's Smoked Bacon Appetizer (Fantastic tasting thick cut in-house bacon slab). Lobster Bisque Cup of Soup (Excellent tasting bisque with large chucks of Lobster Claw). Also ordered the Wedge Salad (Fresh and included pieces of their thick cooked smoked bacon). 10oz Filet Mignon (Extremely tender & cooked to Medium Rare Perfection). Bone-In Ribeye Steak Oscar Style (Seasoned perfectly & cooked to a very tender Medium Rare. Oscar-style Crab topping was nearly all crab meat!). Included Brussel Sprouts (Very tastily baked with seasonings, bacon & soy sauce). Au Gratin Potato's (Very good with a crumble topping). We were celebrating a retirement, and were provided a Celebration Dessert Platter, which was a surprising compliment to finish off our dinner. The Capital Grille has always been an excellent restaurant every time that we have visited; and is an excellent choice for special occasions.
