I originally made the reservation for 12- short notice we added 4 more people and we were accommodated. So appreciate the professionalism.
The food was fantastic and Todd Lee, our server, was exceptional. He made us feel as if we were his first priority. Everyone was so kind, helpful and generous with ideas and even put up with a rambunctious few that were with us.
We dined at capital Grille on Tuesday night, the next night we were at Ruth’s and let me tell you, everyone in our party commented that They wished we had returned to Capital for a second night. Thank you thank you thank you. We can’t wait to return.

I greatly appreciated that the Capital Grille recognized my wife’s birthday. They always do a very nice job of making a big deal out of my family’s birthday’s which I greatly appreciate.

The food and the service was excellent. My entire family had a very good time!!

We went for Thanksgiving lunch and it was superb. Our server was very attentive. The meal was delicious. The only negative is our table wasn’t ready when we arrived, but once we got seated it was A+ all the way.

We love the Grille and have never been disappointed. We were caught in traffic, so our time allotted for dinner was cut a bit short to be on time for a show. We began with a glass of Prosecco that was well-chilled, crisp, and dry. The salads were next. My husband had a wedge that was generous and smothered in blue cheese dressing and bacon bits. I had the roasted beets with goat cheese and greens. Yummy! To follow the salads, my husband ordered a Filet Oskar which was hearty and cooked to perfection. I had scallops which were tender and moist, served on a bed of root vegetable puree, and dressed-up with snippets of asparagus. Delicious! Wine pairing suggestions were provided by our server who selected a full-bodied Willamette Pinot Noir and a Champagne with a gorgeous golden-pink hue and wonderful flavor. He was spot-on with those recommendations. Unfortunately, we had to forego dessert and coffee. We ever felt rushed and made it to the show in good time, feeling very satisfied, having been well cared for during another pleasant evening at the Grille.

This hurts me to write this review because Capital Grille has always been our solid go-to when we want a fantastic meal. There were four of us. The salads and french onion soup were very good and the squash bisque was excellent. But I had ordered my filet oscar style medium very light on the Bearnaise. The waiter offered to put the sauce on the side which sounded great. My steak was VERY well done (seriously could barely chew) and drowning in Bernaise. Another at our table also ordered a medium filet and it was overcooked as well. The sea bass was very good and the bone in filet was okay. The asparagus and cauliflower sides were very good, but the steaks were SO disappointing. I've never had a bad meal here until this one.

Always superior service, food, and drinks. The entrance gets a little crowded, especially when there is a show at one or more of the nearby theaters. Even though we were a little late, our table was held and we made the show on time. This was mostly because our server told us when to order in order to make it! The best!

Best meal and dining experience I've had in a long time. From the minute you walk in you feel welcome. Our server, Lynn, was a pro. It was my husbands birthday and she really made it special. The table was decorated with some sparkles and for the first time I can remember, I didn't have to remind the server that it was a special occasion. First rate, first class. Will definitely go again.

We had the best birthday celebration at Capital Grille. Lobster bisque had large pieces of lobster in it. Our Porccini bone-in ribeye steaks were cooked to perfection. The mashed potatoes and asparagus were equally as delicious. Our waitress was wonderful. The only downfall from our experience was that the table next to us allowed their small child to sit on one of their phones watching a video at a very high volume until they left about halfway through our meal. The tables around us were also annoyed with this. It was inappropriate and very unfortunate. However, the dessert sampler that is brought out for birthdays was more than enough sweetness for the two of us to share that we could not even finish it after our meals. We will be back, and highly recommend. My favorite steakhouse in the metro by far.
