We went here for our anniversary and they really took care of us! Our server was outstanding - probably the best service we’ve had. Little touches of romance and we had 4 different people wish us happy anniversary- it was really sweet! The food was great too! Recommend the tuna tartare, lobster mac and cheese and the filet - all amazing!

After reading positive reviews for this restaurant I was expecting far more. My soup came lukewarm, and the main courses were uninspired with no attention to plating. Definitely not worth the dollar value.

The Capital Grill is our favorite special occasion restaurant in the Twin Cities. We have been reserving tables here for the past 7 years on Open Table. We especially look forward to coming to the generous pour every year with my sister and brother in law. This was one of the most disappointing visits we have ever had. Out waiter, Tony, was not attentive and appeared to be frustrated with how busy he was. To be quite honest, if this was our first time dining in this restaurant, we would have never come back. We have always felt like we get what we pay for when it comes to exceptional food and service. Unfortunately the service was not there for us on this visit.

The even started off with us meeting Ryan our Waitperson for the evening. He was humorous, attentive, and made great recommendations. Though we have dined a dozen or more times at the Capital Grill, this was our first occasion during the Generous Pour event featuring Dan Duckhorn wines which three of us chose while our designated driver opted for a small split of Prosecco. From appetizers through desert everything was served at optimal temperature and prepared to order. A wonderful evening was had bay all.
