We shared the chicken for a change instead of a steak and it was delicious as well as the creamed spinach. We had it with a nice pinot noir and the sauce with the chicken was perfect with the red wine which went lovely together.

We have been attempting to visit the establishment for a few years. There have been blizzards, Covid lockdown and illness that have thwarted our previous attempts. We finally had the great pleasure to dine last night in celebration of my birthday. We had the best server - Ryan. He was knowledgeable, patient, provided the right amount of humor and attention to our table. The food was delicious. Recommend the Burrata salad, the filet mignon and the lobster Mac and cheese. The dessert presentation for my birthday was phenomenal. We will definitely return and will request Ryan again.

The steaks were fantastic as always and I highly recommend pairing with the small lobster tails. The family thoroughly enjoyed the crab cakes and tuna tartare appetizers along with my favorite salad, heirloom tomatoes. You can’t go wrong with the lobster mac side dish. Btw, don’t forget the cheese cake!!! Not sure what they put in it but it’s amazing.

Our evening was slated to be a special celebratory extravagance. The servers were exceptional — above and beyond brilliant. These individuals were warm, professional and struck that highly nuanced balance between magically appearing to attend to your every need, yet unobtrusive.

The food was fine — great steak, pleasant and varied accompaniments.

HOWEVER, the host and hosting staff were rude and graceless. Especially the male manager in charge. This glaring blemish amidst an otherwise solid establishment will prevent our return.

The steak, service, and all the courses were amazing! The only thing missing was a cheese option on dessert menu. They do have a great port, it would have been much nicer with some cheese to finish a fab meal. Hopefully they will update the desert menu as we look forward to returning.

Great experience, service, surroundings and staff. A little disappointed in the steak but at noon may not have the greatest kitchen staff. My daughters steak was rare, not medium. The hostess is wonderful - friendly, and quick wit. Will definitely go back.

My husband and I always have a great experience here. We have always given 5 stars, however there was one miss the last time we went the shrimp cocktail was not that great, it came out super dry. We are still beyond impressed, it is the first time we have had anything to frown upon and we have gone there for many special occasions. This last time we went the server was so patient with me. I love red wine yet I am very picky. So he brought out two samples and I didn't like either. He then brought out 2 additional samples in which I did really like one. I was nervous because it would have been embarrassing to try 4 wines and not like any of them!

The Capital Grille is my special place to enjoy a great meal experience. Usually a couple/few times a year. This last time was New Year's Eve Lunch. Sat at the bar and luckily Dustin was still there. And while it was a quiet time (before the NYE crazy), it was an exceptional lunch.

Sitting at the bar is a favorite time. Dustin's always cheerful, helps with choices, and service is exceptional. A couple cocktails to start. Some delicious French Onion Soup cups to begin. The Wedge Salad, of course, and also a Caesar Salad next - the real meal was splitting the Dry Aged Strip.

I have to mention that this Strip Steak was so dang delicious, I'll be comparing that to every steak I eat for the next many years. Done to perfect medium, it was tender, juicy, crispy on the outside, and tasted like heaven. Compliment that with a couple glasses of Maggy Hawk Afleet Pinot Noir? I didn't need no stinkin' ball drop at midnight. I was set for the new year.

Thanks again Dustin & The Capital Grille for a delicious afternoon.

This used to be my favorite restaurant. Haven’t been there in a while because of Covid. Menu has drastically changed. I miss the crab and extra large lobster tails. We ordered several appetizers. All were excellent. Soups portions were very small. Filet (Oscar style) and small lobster tails for dinner. Very good. Also had lamb which was very good. They were out of my wine by the glass (Sauvignon blanc), which I though was odd. Just open a different bottle and offer a different kind. So I ended up ordering an entire bottle. We ordered several sides. All very good. Also ordered 3 desserts. Not as good as they were a few years ago. Different styles of the same items the used to offer. Service was good.

Fabulous as always. The wedge and the NY Strip are the standard that I compare all other steakhouses. Have not found anything better.

Service was impecable.

One issue is that they have removed hash browns from the menu and off-menu requests. Sacrilege for a steakhouse in my opinion.

We brought my step-daughter to lunch prior to Thanksgiving. We had reservations at an off time secondary to her schedule. We were seated in the bar, which was very quiet (nice) and waited on by Dustin, who was outstanding. The food was up to Capital Grille standards and very good. The only issue I had with the service was when the entree arrived. We still had our salad plates in front of us when the two servers from the kitchen arrived. The woman looked at us and expected us to somehow remove our salad plates so she could put the entree down and there was no room on the table for this. Also, we were served the wrong steaks and had to ask which was which. This is a small point as the rest of the service (from the hostess calling ahead of time about the bar seating to Dustin's attention) was outstanding. But this is what I will remember about this lunch. The woman server could have easily put a plate down and then removed our salad plates, or asked Dustin for assistance. And then also ensured we received the correct entree.
