    Waiter was very friendly and informative. He was very attentive at first but as the evening went by (and probably more tables to serve) he was gone for long intervals at a time. The water and bus staff were always quick and efficient. We would have liked to see a ribeye on the menu that was smaller than 22 ounces. Due to portion size, a couple of us chose the NY strips with a rub and brown sauce. Steak was very good and had good flavor. We should have had the sauce on the side as it wasn’t great and detracted from the meat flavor. Another of us chose the sliced steak recipe and though ordered medium, a couple internal slices were essentially raw and went uneaten. The outer slices were well done. Flavor was good. The asparagus and potato sides were truly unremarkable compared to Manny’s sides. Valet service was excellent and a welcome feature.

    I enjoyed the best sea bass dish that was perfectly prepared with vegetables and a light, delicious sauce. My dining partner really liked his salmon which looked equally appealing. Dessert included some delectable, assorted ripe berries with a creamy accent sauce. Our server was wonderful, very knowledgeable about the menu and attentive without hovering. Overall it was a 10+ dining experience with great ambiance. I Highly recommend The Capital Grille!

    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Capital Grille from the moment we walked in. The maitre d' welcomed us so warmly and set the tone for a great evening. Ken was our server and was truly a joy to chat and joke with. Our wine, dinner, dessert and coffee were incredible and the service delivered by everyone was beyond compare. Thank you for a terrific night, we will definitely return!

The service is friendly and efficient and the steaks are great. Oh a very diverse and expansive wine list. Overall a great experience.

    Always a great experience when we travel and can dine at CG! Minneapolis did not disappoint. Michael was our waiter in the Bar where we were seated and he was on top of his game!! Provided us with great service while also mixing in great conversation! His addition of the Brussel Sprouts w/ our meal was the perfect compliment!! Looking forward to our next visit to CG…can’t happen soon enough!!

    Not the Capital Grille I remember or expected. Steaks were good, but not incredible. We were never presented with a wine menu. We finally had to ask for it in between salads and entrees. You should never have to ask for a wine menu in a place like this...it's a given. Au Graten potatoes were very, very bland and too milky. Menu seems very paired down, I'd guest pist-covid issues and lack of people in downtown Minneapolis. I see the Capital Grille as an iconic mainstay for high quality food and service, but it fell extremely short.
