This was our second time down to Capital Grill. Chris was our server and we could not have asked for a better person to take care of us. He was on the spot, friendly and kind. The dinners we ordered we nothing short of perfect. From the time we walked in till we left, we were welcomed and wanted. It was a top notch experience that has left us hungry to come back again. Thanks for a very fun night and a very delicious dinner.

Everything was as we have come to expect from Capitol Grille. Only downside was the drunk guy sitting a couple of tables over, who was talking much too loudly.

Fantastic food and service as always. They helped to make my son's college graduation special by allowing me to come early to decorate the table for him, and brought him out a complementary celebratory dessert tray after the meal. Thank you!

Delicious!! This was my first impression of downtown cuisine and it didn’t disappoint. I made a reservation on open table and had no issues once I arrived, 10min early. Our waiter, Bjorn was very helpful in the menu selections. We opted for the French onion soup, green salad with Parmesan vinaigrette, salmon entree and several family style sides: wild roasted mushrooms and the au gratin potatoes. Between the two of us there was no food left on the table. The salad was a simple salad with light dressing and made you feel like you got your greens in for the day. The French onion soup was delightful after you got past the symphony of cheese melted on top. My favorite sides as the wild mushrooms, there were seasoned and cooked just right. I think I could of eaten the whole thing by myself. My counterpart loved the salmon and potatoes. We both enjoyed our dinner and cocktails.

I would have to compare this dining experience at the very top of our favorite restaurants enjoyed throughout travels in the European theater. My wife’s sea bass was cooked to perfection as well as my lobster. It was made even more perfect by our waiter (Matt), who found out that we were celebrating a very special occasion and to our surprise, provided desserts on the house.M

Our conversation with Matt allowed us to enjoy not only a great dining experience, but meet a new friend who enjoys traveling to foreign lands like us. Matt thank you so much for making this a very special occasion. We look forward to seeing you again and have shared with friends to ask for you when they visit this fine establishment.

As we entered we were told by CDC guidelines we could only dine 90min. Not a good greeting. And that’s is the restaurants rule.

Always a staple, the Filet Oscar hit the spot. The service style seems to have decreased a little, but otherwise it was just as we had hoped. Relaxing, delicious, wonderful. Still my favorite steakhouse in the Twin Cities. The bisque had a huge amount of lobster but I still find the consistency a little runny.

I always love going to Capitol Grille. However the smell of marijuana from other patrons was very offensive. The constant walking back and forth past my table to the bathroom from another party was very distracting and obnoxious.

Everything was awesome! Valet was very nice and courteous. Our waiter was super attentive worked at the location for 30yrs.
Menu choices were good! I had the Sear Tenderloin with porches butter lobster 🦞 omg very good! The first time I have ever ate steak 🥩 without A1 sauce which is impressive. My husband had the Lamb 🐑 Ribs, was good! Would just recommend to automatically do the butterfly cut style instead of asking.

Going to keep it simple. Every little thing was awesome! You can’t go wrong at Capital Grille for a special occasion. We had yummy cocktails, delicious lobster bisque, tender scallops, and juicy steaks with a surprise dessert on a plate with “Congratulations!” My son who just graduated from the U of MN was pretty impressed! Keep doing what you do, CG!

6 of us dined. Everything was up to par. It’s our “go to” steakhouse. One of the steaks was overdone, otherwise all was excellent. In this case it is just not worth it to have a steak re-made and upset the whole flow of our meal so the host simply ate an overdone steak and said nothing.

I love the capital grille. The food and service are amazing. However, Downtown Minneapolis is no longer safe. As such, I will no longer go to the Capital Grille for dinners - family or business.
