Great New Year’s Eve location. Very festive and special ambiance. Food is good but not a great value. Ordered shrimp cocktail but had to use the bread plate to eat from.

Always one of my favorites in the Twin Cities. The staff really takes great care of you and works hard to make dining there a terrific experience. Top notch food, especially well cooked steaks. Save room for the potatoes and other sides! The calamari and oysters are a must beforehand. It’s pricey but worth the cost, and I will be back!

The food was just astoundingly bad. My wife and I each had filets. My medium rare steak was burnt to a crisp on the outside. Her filet oscar had the oldest, smelliest lump crab on top. It was inedible. It also had the weirdest bernaise sauce on it. We ordered a shrimp crostini appetizer. The shrimp was over cooked. $350 for two people with amazing food is arguably overpriced for a special dinner, but this food was garbage. Sadly, all of the issues were just their poor performance.

This was my first experience at The Capital Grille. Besides being New Years Eve, there was a special occasion being celebrated. The service was attentive and very helpful with recommendations. The food was tremendous!
We were given a delightful complementary dessert for our celebration. The evening was the nicest dining experience that we have had ina long time, definitely a highlight event.

This was our anniversary and they really did a great of decorating our table before we arrived which was 20 min earlier than our reservation. The complimentary dessert plate was a great touch. Shannon took our order and attended to us was superb. Ordered the 22oz ribey and wife ordered the dry aged NY strip Steak. Both steaks was very flavorful. The asparagus and wild mushroom was done perfect. Total bill was $175 plus $40 tip for 2. Will definitely come back.

The service was horrible. Meals were not brought out together. Main courses were brought out while we were still eating first courses. Staff cleared main course while one diner was still eating his. Some first courses came out ten minutes after everyone else had received their first course. Three of the meals were completely undercooked. They jammed so many tables into the dining space in an attempt to maximize profit that we were banged by wait staff and other diners throughout the entire meal. For the prices charged, the experience should be exceptional every time (we would have been better off at a quick service restaurant tonight). Very disappointing!

Our experience at The Capital Frille was amazing. We were celebrating my dad's birthday, and to be honest, I was apprehensive about going here as I had never been. I finally chose this spot over Burch as they had an earlier reservation time available. And boy, am I glad I did! Our party of 7 was treated amazingly by our server Angela. The food was beyond phenomenal, and the environment itself is beautiful. Of course, its expensive, but the experience you get here is second to none. Highly recommend!!

We went for dinner before a show so the restaurant was very busy. as always our service was excellent and food was excellent. Always an expensive evening but for those special occasions well worth it. Whenever we see a show at the orpheum we always go to dinner here as it is a quick walk down to the theater. Don't forget to leave your leftovers at the restaurant. They will hold them for you until the show is over. And that's a great excuse to have dessert and coffee before calling it a night.

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.
