The Capital Grille always makes us feel like weekly regulars, even though we only get there once a year. Great food, fantastic service from front to back, all in an elegant and romantic environment.

Awesome experience.
We were starting with wine and I noted a very reasonably priced Zin that was a 2013 and rated "90+". I did not know it, but it was from Passo and we love Zins from the central valley. After a few minutes the waiter came back with a sad look and tole me that the wine was not as it was listed - there had been an error. The wine steward come to our table and apologized, so we started talking wines. He recommended we try another Zin from Passo they had in stock - it was less than the one I had organically ordered! How many times have you had the wine steward "down" sell you??? The wine was excellent, the meal was excellent and the service was excellent.

Our server, Katie, was 100% committed to finding us a wine we loved and succeeded. She also provided a couple of her favorite sauces to try which was a nice addition to our meal. We have never had anything but exceptional food and service at Capital Grille.

Great New Year’s Eve location. Very festive and special ambiance. Food is good but not a great value. Ordered shrimp cocktail but had to use the bread plate to eat from.

Always one of my favorites in the Twin Cities. The staff really takes great care of you and works hard to make dining there a terrific experience. Top notch food, especially well cooked steaks. Save room for the potatoes and other sides! The calamari and oysters are a must beforehand. It’s pricey but worth the cost, and I will be back!

The food was just astoundingly bad. My wife and I each had filets. My medium rare steak was burnt to a crisp on the outside. Her filet oscar had the oldest, smelliest lump crab on top. It was inedible. It also had the weirdest bernaise sauce on it. We ordered a shrimp crostini appetizer. The shrimp was over cooked. $350 for two people with amazing food is arguably overpriced for a special dinner, but this food was garbage. Sadly, all of the issues were just their poor performance.

This was my first experience at The Capital Grille. Besides being New Years Eve, there was a special occasion being celebrated. The service was attentive and very helpful with recommendations. The food was tremendous!
We were given a delightful complementary dessert for our celebration. The evening was the nicest dining experience that we have had ina long time, definitely a highlight event.

This was our anniversary and they really did a great of decorating our table before we arrived which was 20 min earlier than our reservation. The complimentary dessert plate was a great touch. Shannon took our order and attended to us was superb. Ordered the 22oz ribey and wife ordered the dry aged NY strip Steak. Both steaks was very flavorful. The asparagus and wild mushroom was done perfect. Total bill was $175 plus $40 tip for 2. Will definitely come back.
