Food was great, although steak was fired rare instead of medium rare. No issue there, most steak houses now are doing that so they don't overcook first. The worst part was sitting down and never getting a waiter for 20 minutes, they made up for it by comping drinks. Had a really nice meal and would return.

Our go to restaurant for great food at great value. Our wonderful server Nicole is exceptional and she heads a courteous and professional team of people who make the meal run smoothly, with a most positive approach. All requests - allergies etc. are carefully attended to and this is much appreciate indeed. Sarah has also worked with Nicole and deserves credit for her efforts as well.

We ate at the bar. Our bartender Gabe was awesome- super friendly, great service, great recommendations that were right on point. We already made reservations to come back with a group in a couple of weeks. The food was amazing- some of the best we've had anywhere and we eat out a lot. Will definitely be back!

I had an amazing server, Ariana, who took over for my favorite server who was off. As always, it made me feel special to see the table decorated with birthday confetti and a birthday card. We started with a generous bread basket with a nice assortment of different types of bread. The salad of field greens was more than I could finish. The rack of lamb and accompaniments of creamed spinach and mashed potatoes were delicious. My dessert of sorbet came with a birthday candle on the side for the occasion. Ariana treated us to a complimentary glass of champagne which was very thoughtful of her and helped make my birthday celebration a memorable one. Thanks Capital Grille for another wonderful birthday celebration.

We were there for the last night of the Generous Pour promotion and it is always a winner. It is one of the most consistent grills in the city. They hit the marks every time, from appetizers to desserts. It is a no brainer for a reservation.

Capital Grills has always been one of my favorite steakhouses in the city. Every single time I go, the food has been consistently great. That is a rather rare trait for a steakhouse. This time was no exception. I always get the bone-ed in filet because its too good to ever switch to try something else.

Wonderful experience. Our waiter was prompt and attentive but not overbearing. Food was absolutely delicious, steak cooked as ordered. My only complaint is that it was a bit dark, a complaint I have about many steak houses. Would definitely go again. Close to Gershwin theater where we went for a show afterwards.
