Enjoyed the evening overall. The waiter worked hard to insure our happiness however English was not his first language thus we had a little trouble understanding him at times.
We greatly appreciated all host and service staff were wearing masks which likely complicated the communication issue noted above.
The food and beverage quality was excellent from start to finish as usual. It has been awhile since I last visited this location, it was nice to see the experience remains so good!
The Capital Grill remains my favorite steakhouse restaurant.

My experience at Capital Grille was top tier. It was my Friend’s Birthday and Ken made our night wonderful. Everyone catered to our every need. It was fine dining, fun, and great service all in one. Thanks again for everything Ken!

We were having an early dinner before the Gopher-OSU game. Michael, our waiter, had us set up at the "conversation corner" of the bar. We had a great meal and, at his recommendation, a great bottle of Caymus Malbec. Michael was also very entertaining in his own right!

Our six year anniversary of our first date, which we had gone to the Capital grille for then. They helped make this one special with complimentary champagne and dessert, that was delicious.

As always the food was amazing and the service was extraordinary. Many of the staff stopped by to wish us a happy anniversary and they all helped to make it special. Once again the place reminded me of why it’s one of my favorite restaurants in the cities.

One of the very few very good restaurants open for lunch and dinner in downtown Minneapolis. It is a very well managed restaurants. Staff is well trained, food as you might expect is mostly great steaks oriented, but there are good choices offered, as well, for those that prefer fish and seafood. Regardless of what you order, you will be pleased with the quality.

Capital Grille is a class organization and with the possible exception of Oceanaire Seafood restaurant there is not a better restaurant in Minneapolis.

Due to the concern for COVID=19 related issues, as well as, the safety concerns at downtown Minneapolis, I had not gone to the Capital Grille for sometime. But my recent visit there reminded me what a great restaurant it is. The abbreviated menu included good choice of seafood and of course steak, as well as entree salads, and soups. Service was impeccable, and the ambiance was just as relaxing and enjoyable as ever.

I recommend Capital Grille, because of its superb management strongly. Going there was like running into a long lost friend after a long time.

For the value and the money we spent, we felt that a table of six should not be shoved in the bar section right by the entrance and difficult for waiters to get to us. I think this took away from our experience of fine dining. I’m sure there were other tables in the dining room being saved for non restaurant week customers.
The waiter was fabulous and tried to make the best of it for us.
It would also be good practice to serve all courses at the same for all dining at the table.

First off, The Capital Grille has outstanding food. We have always had excellent food. We have always had excellent service - until this visit. Right from the start the gentleman serving us made us feel like we were putting him out. It was our fault for being put in his serving area. We heard about the extra specials offered for restaurant week, from the server at the NEXT table. Not our server. I had to request more water after waiting for my glass to be filled. Our entrees were delivered while our salad plates were still on the table. We were TOLD to hold our used salad plates up in the air - in a fine dining, white tableclothed restaurant! We had to swap plates as my steak was delivered to my husband and I received his. The manager on duty came by after hearing us say the service was poor. Her excuse was they were busy and were having trouble getting good staff after the pandemic. I'm sorry but we were at another fine dining restaurant 2 days earlier and the service was outstanding.
We were so disappointed in the service. By the way, the server never did come by to ask how our meals were.
Again - the food at Capital Grille is worth the visit. Hopefully the service improves.

My friend and I went for restaurant week lunch. Capital has such beautiful space and its fun to treat yourself. Our server Cory was great! He explained the menu, checked on gluten free options, refilled drinks and genuinely made us feel welcome. I will always request him. The food, as always did not disappoint!! Salmon cooked and seasoned perfectly and creme brûlée to die for. We will be back!!

My husband and I went out for restaurant week. Capital grille had a great menu with two different steak choices, a fish choice and chicken. We love the bread bowl and the Caesar salad with fresh pepper is a fav! Our waiter was kind and patient. My filet mignon was made to perfection.
