We entertained a special guest and his colleague who were both very impressed with the appetizers and main dishes. Thank you, Capital Grille, for making our dining experience memorable! I had the bone-in fillet which was so tender and succulent - delicious! We will definitely be back.

So, I planned a surprise dinner here for my husband's 50th. There were only 8 of us so I didn't even bother asking for a private space. I only asked for a table somewhere away from the front so that he would not catch on before I wanted him to. I called beforehand to make sure the host/manager knew to seat everyone prior to our arrival, and most importantly, to not let on that there were others already seated. It went off perfectly! Not only did they NOT blow the surprise but instead led us into a private room with a curtain, decorated with confetti and a card on the table. They warned all of our guests we were on our way back so they could cover their faces and yell "surprise". The service from Gustavo was impeccable. The hostess was wonderful. My guests told me the staff seemed genuinely happy to be helping make it a surprise. I can't overstate how impressed I was by the entire evening. I would recommend to anyone to do a party here! Thanks again to the top-notch staff.

Wait staff was superb. Hostess...not so much. Rude and dismissive. Was inclined to say something to manager.

What a wonderful night! We were celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary and they had decorated our table to add to our special night. The food was phenomenal! Steak tartare, filet with lobster tail, and a beautiful flourless chocolate cake with berries (beautifully decorated by the kitchen) made our night extra special. Thank you to the staff for a wonderful night!

The service was unusually slow. While we had a good time, the meal dragged on for over 3 hours. Long delay in getting wine from their cellar and ultimately not the vintage on the menu. We waited almost 1/2 hour to be served the wine. Also there was a large gap in time between courses. Our waiter was nice and attentive, but not the level of service I have come to expect from Capital Grille.

From the moment we walked in the service was the number 1 priority. We were seated on time with no wait.Our server was knowledgeable, polite and professional. The food as always was prepared perfectly and we actually had enough left over for a full meal the next day. The manager stopped by to make sure everything was prepared to our liking.

We chose to celebrate our 10th anniversary here and it was phenomenal. We were surprised with confetti decorating our table and a great anniversary card upon our arrival. Eric was a great waiter! He was prompt, east going and very sweet. I had the seared Tenderloin with Twin Poached Lobster Tails and Sauteed Spinach, My sweetheart had Herb Roasted Chicken with Mushroom Parmesan risotto , both absolutely delicious They even gifted us with an anniversary dessert and photo, which was a great touch. We will definitely return in the near future.

Everything was wonderful for our dining experience. Food was excellent. Waitress was friendly and attentive.she didn’t rush us at all. Food is pricy but overall worth it. Been here many times and will return.

As usual my experience at CG was excellent!! The food is great. The ambiance exceptional. Most of all the service is impeccable. I have had the pleasure of having one server in particular on several occasions. He is the best! I believe his name is Joe but I like to call him Michael because he looks like Michael Buble’. He’s kind, patient and remembers things about what I and my friend likes(the Stoli Doli’s are awesome). He’s an asset to the restaurant and makes each visit more enjoyable than the next.

$120 for two for lunch and no alcohol seemed a bit much. But it was good.

Had another amazing dinner at the center city Capital Grille this weekend. Our waiter, Nick, took great care of us from beginning to end. Everything we ordered, including all Nick’s recommendations, were so delicious, and the drinks were fantastic. We can’t wait to return!

What a wonderful evening. We had a leisurely and delicious dinner. The waitstaff was terrific. Very knowledgeable about the wines and the menus. We had a drink while we looked over the menu. We had oysters to start. They were delicious and the presentation was beautiful. We enjoyed a bottle of wine with our dinner. The steaks were incredibly tasty and tender and the lobster tails were served with a sauce that made me want to lick the plate. This is the place to go when you are celebrating a special occasion or want a meal that you will long remember.

Despite the bustle in the restaurant, the service was good and the food was excellent. Two of us had fish - salmon and Chilean sea bass - and the other person had steak. All were well prepared and to the degree requested. We will return again.
