I love the capital grille. It is my favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh. The cocktails are fabulous. My bluepoint oysters were fresh and amazing! The porcini rubbed ribeye is usually excellent but the sauce on it this time was too sweet. Bread amazing.
Thank you. Loved it overall. Excellent service.

Birthday dinner for our adult son who wanted a great steak with family. The Capital Grill did not disappoint us. Steaks and seafood entrees for our party of 9 were delicious. Service was great. Loved the private dining room!

Liz who is a hostess was incredibly unfriendly. She needs to understand the art of customer service. We inconvenienced her when we asked if we could find a table. She told us begrudgingly it would be at least an hour. We looked at our phone at the OpenTable app and behold there was a reservation immediately available. She was angry beyond words and was completely unprofessional in her approach with us. You can find better help, I am quite sure!

The drinks were good meal was good, however there is a dress code posted on the door. The restaurant does not adhere to it. Some guests were dressed very poorly which affects the ambience of the entire dining experience.
This is something I would expect at a local restaurant but not at a upscale one. It's enough of a distraction to make me consider dining here again. I expect upscale for the price point and the lack of concern for sloppy guests is a downer.

Seated at the smallest table possible for 4 people. Animal heads in the bar covered in dust. You'd think they could have cleaned during the pandemic. At those prices things should be perfect.

Perfection. Great service and food was top notch. An app was special ordered to ‘become’ dairy free for our son, and it was first off not an issue, and second was really quite delicious! All of our steaks were prepared to our liking, and the sides were spectacular… Especially the au gratin potatoes and the truffle fries. The flourless chocolate cake was so delicious as was the cheesecake and the berries on the dessert menu. Our service team did a terrific job… Absolutely wonderful evening, from valet in to valet out. Well done!!

We had a drink at the bar, nice and lively. Our bartender made us two excellent drinks. (Manhattan & Tito’s on the rocks with garlic olives). We enjoyed our drink and then sat in the bar area dining room. My favorite place to eat usually wherever I go.

The bartender ended up being our waitress. She was warm & welcoming and made our dinner a very enjoyable experience. Her back up helper was adorable and very attentive. But not too attentive. Which is great

Our meals. My husband had the bone-in filet enjoyed his steak. I had the Salmon and it was delicious. We shared truffle fries and creamed spinach; both were very tasty.

I really like this restaurant, my favorite when in Pittsburgh.

We have been here many times and always had an exceptional meal and experience. This is time was not like those times. The calamari was tough and chewy, the salad had no dressing and our food took an extremely long time to come out and when it did the steaks were cold as if they’d been sitting for a while. We recently ate at the Washington DC location last month and had none of these issues. I really hope this is a product of going back to full capacity recently and not what’s to now expect.

On this return visit to the Capital Grille, we shared the Burata salad, the mashed potatoes and the Banana Creme pie. For entrees, we had lamb chops and the sliced filet. Everything was great. Meat cooked perfectly and portions are ample. We were not a fan of the sauce that came with the lamb chops but the chops were great. I have a few left over in the fridge! Can't say enough good things about the service. Our servers were very attentive and the pace of the meal was just right. Koy was our waiter. An excellent meal.

We were in town from Cleveland celebrating our anniversary. From the time we walked through the door your staff greeted us with Happy Anniversary. The heart confetti on the table was so nice, the food was so delicious, our waiter was so awesome and the complimentary dessert on the Happy Anniversary plate was the perfect touch to a special evening. The ambiance and level of professionalism really made our anniversary dinner all that more special. Thank you!!! We will be back again.

Food above all else was excellent! We had the steak Oscar and lots of martinis!
Service was a bit harried, possibly too much to do for staff, but it’s the times we live in now!

I can always count on a good meal at the Capital Grille. I took my dad for dinner this evening it was his first time there and he loved it. Our dinners did take longer than usual to come out which was disappointing but still well worth the wait.

Excellent as always. Appetizer with the lobster and crab cake was top notch. Beats Monterey Bay. The only thing subpar was the old fashioned. From not having the one large I’ve cube to not enough sweet. But I will overlook that as everything else was top notch. The au gratin potatoes supreme. Asparagus was large and firm. Bone in rib-eye cooked perfectly and amazing flavor. Wine was a perfect match with the Faust 18. Still have Cap Grille as my number 1 Pittsburgh steakhouse .

First time at restaurant. Kona and porcini crusted steaks were fabulous. Chicken w/risotto was bland. We were seated in a booth at the entrance and it was distracting with people entering and hostess station. I would recommend requesting something either in main restaurant or bar area.
