    We love this restaurant - the ambience, the drinks and mostly the food. We usually only make it downtown for our anniversary and tonight was the same. Apps and service were amazing, but the chefs didn’t handle things well when they were faced with an overcooked steak.

    Everything was absolutely superb! Our waiter, Carlos, took excellent care of us. Our food was exceptional ! From the seafood platter to steaks and all the accompaniments. And of course the best cocktails and wine. The evening was very important to us and Capital Grille and Carlos took the best care of us.

    This is my third time going to Capital Grille for a special occasion. They treated us very well. When I told them we were celebrating an anniversary, they gave us champagne and dessert. I would highly recommend this place to my friends and family.

    The experience was not up to a Capitol Grille experience that we have come to expect.My steak was hard charred on the outside and completely rare on the inside. I asked for medium plus. They replaced the steak that was still completely charred but at least it was edible on the inside. They did give us a complimentary dessert, My glass of wine had so much sediment in it, I couldn’t even finish. When I brought it up to the waiter, he said, oh and then took it away.

    The service and atmosphere were great. We ordered the French onion soup, lobster and crab cake, sliced filet mignon with mushroom, seared tenderloin with lobster tails, and the skillet hash brown with caviar. Everything tasted great, except for the sliced filet mignon. It was too salty, which could have just been an uncommon mistake. I was also expected bigger lobster tails, but they tasted great nonetheless. Other than that, it was a good experience overall.

    Three of us ate prior to going to the Orpheum. It is a wonderful start to an evening out even down to the valet parking! All employees are extremely service oriented and helpful. This visit was no exception. Wonderful! Two of us ordered wine by the glass - very nice selection of both white and red! One had a nonalcoholic Mojito which was good but she was disappointed that they didn't carry a Phony Negroni? We ordered the calamari appetizer - yum - crispy and came with diced chili peppers. I had the blue cheese encrusted NY strip steak - huge and absolutely delicious! My cousins had the sliced tenderloin preparation and French onion soup. Our server was as attentive as possible considering the time and anxious theater goers in his care. He happily stored our take out containers while we attended the play and they were waiting for us when we picked up our car. A delightful evening!

    They made me and my boyfriend anniversary special. It was our first time there wasn’t expecting them to decorate the table and the staff to acknowledge our anniversary. Diego was our server and gave excellent service. Food was amazing. The only thing was I didn’t like how my steak was and same with my boyfriend so we ended up switching steaks cause he like how mine was cooked and vice versa. Other than that desserts and drinks were amazing

    We had a great experience dining on New Year’s Eve. Chris was our waiter and he provided excellent service. He was patient, knowledgeable, and just a joy to work with. We were going to a show at the theater next door and Chris held our leftovers (doggy bag) for us until the show was over. Just a wonderful experience.

    This amazing experience started the moment we stepped out of the car. It was our anniversary, and everyone who served us acknowledged it. The table was set with little hearts sprinkled on it, and champagne was brought to the table right away. The food was outstanding, and we finished with an unexpected dessert on a platter that said, "Happy Anniversary." This too was absolutely delicious! We can't wait to come back. It was an excellent first-time experience. Thank you for the great service and for making our evening so special!

    All good except my daughter’s medium filet that came out medium well+. Having worked in the top steakhouse in San Francisco, it frustrates me when a steakhouse serves steaks that are not grilled to the right temp. It is the thing they should get right above all else.

    Another fantastic meal at The Capital Grille. The food was amazing. The service was good—there were a few interruptions or delays due to some large parties that were in the restaurant, but nothing major. Our waiter comped a drink that took an inordinate amount of time to be delivered, which we appreciated. Only negative was a rude maitre’d at check in. He told us he almost canceled our reservation. We were five minutes late. I value promptness too, but ok, next time I’ll take my family and money elsewhere if there’s a chance we’ll be a few minutes late. 🤷🏼‍♀️

    Predictably good. Our server was excellent as were all the other table service people. Meat was a little less than medium rare than requested but otherwise well prepared. Side dishes were great loved the mushrooms. I asked for a different table when we arrived as I could feel the draft from the doors. The host was somewhat reluctant to accommodate my request, telling me that it was just because the doors had been opened ( yes, exactly). But he did change the table. I saw there are booths as well and would like to know how to request a booth if I come back. I don’t recall that being an option when reserving and it was clear from the host’s behavior that getting a cozy booth wasn’t an option. Very popular place especially during the holidays. Met our needs for a pre-holiday meal but not in the top tier of restaurant experiences for me. Just as to be expected by a steakhouse. Would like options for grass-fed beef and n/a cocktails (lemonade doesn’t quite count).
