This is my pic for my birthday dinner every year. We had a delightful dinner but we were placed in the private dining area which I did not like it as much is the main dining room with the circular booths. Our appetizers were phenomenal, our drinks were phenomenal (I had a grapefruit gimlet which was superb), my only complaint is the size of the entrées. I normally get a seafood dish but opted for a steak, I won’t make that mistake again because they are huge. It would be nice if they had a very small petite steak option which they don’t. Additionally all the sides were wonderful. All in all our dinner was good our service was very good (Sandy). It was a great way to celebrate my birthday.

We had dinner at the Capital Grille with another couple before a black-tie holiday event, and it was excellent. Our waiter, Casey, was very attentive without being overbearing. Our food was outstanding, and the cocktails and wine were very good. I hadn't been to the Capital Grille for a couple of years and was glad to have dined there again. We'll be back.

I took my son (he's 16 and a four sport athlete) to the Capital Grille for dinner before a show at the State. It was just an all around treat. We never felt rushed or second-class because I brought a punk instead of a date. That meant a lot. Scott had a bone-in tenderloin that was huge and amazing and indescribably terrific. I had a smaller tenderloin with mushrooms that was flavorful and perfectly prepared. The mashed potatoes were a creamy heaven. The bread and wine and prosciutto wrapped Mozz appetizer were all tasty and the highest of quality . But the house made fresh peach sorbet? The cheesecake? Come on. This is the stuff of dreams. It was a wonderful night. We'll be back.

We went for the Special Waygu burger and wine pairings. Both were fabulous and a great way to try a great glass of wine and incredible hamburger for the price of the wine alone. I will never want a “regular” burger again. The Restaurant is a classic, the service impeccable and the food is always wonderful.

Our meal lived up to the outstanding experiences we've had at other Capital Grille locations, with top-notch food and superlative service throughout. The wine list is extensive, with a broad range of offerings at different price points. We particularly appreciated being able to get high-quality wines by the glass, and Jim was very helpful in finding us wines we liked. Our server, Cody, was equally helpful in answering our questions about menu items and options, and he paced the meal perfectly: we never felt rushed, yet were never conscious of waiting for the next course. All of the service was quiet and unobtrusive: an extra dinner knife appeared at my place shortly before my salad was served, for example, and I didn't even notice my water glass being refilled. My husband's filet Oscar (a special of the day) was topped with lump crabmeat and served with asparagus; I opted for the filet with cipollini onions, wild mushrooms, and fig essence. Both dishes were perfectly cooked, and the flavors were superb. Equally excellent were our appetizers (French onion soup and a roasted beet and goat cheese salad) and decadent desserts (cheesecake brûlée and a flourless chocolate espresso cake).

We ordered the veal shank, because it was recommended by the staff. We received the shank and it was the toughest meat I have ever had. The waiter took the veal off our check. We then ordered desert that was great. All and all the experience was ok. Don't know if we will go back any time soon.

Everything was fabulous from the minute we walked in the door. While we were initially seated next to a table of unruly customers (who eventually left), our server, Jeff, constantly checked with us about our comfort level, offering to seat us at a different table.

The food, especially the crabs and lobster cakes and the bone-in ribeye were phenomenal! And Jeff brought out the tastiest dessert plate for my birthday, even though we told him we were celebrating early.

We’ll be back!
