Went here for dinner with four friends as an alternative to an organized “rubber chicken” dinner for a reunion event. Such a good idea. Dining room was elegant, service was amazing and the food was great. At the end of the evening I was surprised how reasonable the whole thing was, which was unexpected.

*Five Stars, or an infinite number of them is deserved. The Capital Grille is simply the best - ambiance, service, food, excellently cultivated wine list and great cocktails. Every time I have frequented a Capital Grille the staff treats you like you are their best most deserving patron. You WILL pay for this but the old adage holds true here...you get what you pay for. We love Oysters Rockefeller (especially with a fine Champagne) but it rarely appears on menus these days. I have been curious why TCG doesn't have it on their menu. I thought, well, they have oysters and creamed spinach as a side dish, so we asked Joe our waiter if Chef could make it and it was presented to us as one of the finest renditions ever! Brava Sous Chef Wadiya Moore! (We asked for Chef to come to table for our personal kudos). Sadly, there are few "fine dining" establishments that perform at this level. Go and treat yourself and your favorite person(s). It is most deserved.

Pricey but what I expected for a steakhouse. Portions were very generous. Would have been nice to see some fresh flowers on tables versus a lamp. Appreciated being able to tell our hostess we had a special birthday celebration and she quietly told our waiter so we would surprise our birthday guy with a special dessert. Overall, a good experience and I would recommend to anyone looking for a great steakhouse meal on a special or corporate occasion.

Last minute decision to go to Dinner and we landed here as they could accommodate our reservation. Ambiance is always classically good/manly, though, oddly, after a few courses, me and my table mate finally agreed that it was strange that every single picture hanging on the walls was crooked. I almost felt like it was a joke and someone would come out from behind the curtain. Food was is always great, with the perfectly cooked steak and fresh shellfish. The steak tartar was a bit of a problem because it wasn’t chopped up very fine so it felt almost caveman-ish to be putting 1 inch chunk of raw steak and then just chewing and chewing and chewing to no avail. We abandoned that course. Everything else was superb as usural.

We went to celebrate my son's college graduation. We were delighted to find that the table had been decorated and a congratulatory note had been left. Our server, Bob Stimmel, was gracious, attentive and anticipated our every need. Cocktails were delicious, as was everything we ordered. My only "complaint" was that I found the room to be a bit cold. Other than that, it was worth every penny and we look forward to going there for the next family occasion.

The service that I received was outstanding. Everybody was so accommodating. They made me feel special on my graduation. Chef Wacllya baked my favorite cake for me although they usually don't. It was a special request and she accommodated me. Our server Jeoffrey was also nice. Thank you again Capital Grille for your hospitality. My family and I appreciate your services. Keep improving and excelling!
