Started with the lobster bisque. Huge chunks of lobster. Loved that sherry was added to the bisque at the table. The tuna tartare on avocado & cucumber with cilantro & mango puree was light & flavourful - only perfect. The bone in filet was absolutely delicious. Always ask for the Kona rub. It is the best compliment to a med-rare steak. Ended with a key lime pie with pistachios that was unbelievable. Such a perfect meal.

It was my birthday early dinner and it was wonderful to see your birthday card and birthday sprinkles on the table. Katie has always requested to be our server as she is always outstanding.

Enjoyable evening as usual. It wasn't very busy and we had very attentive service. I was pleased with the wine selection. We were visited by the manager as well to ensure everything was ok. Capital Grille is always a good choice for a high end steak house.

The roasted chicken and sea bass dinners were very good, but possibly could have been better. Asparagus on both plates that really had no flavor and definitely didn’t elevate the dishes as asparagus season is well over. Probably would eat dinner elsewhere next time in Pittsburgh. The waitstaff was superb!

We had an amazing lunch. We celebrated 2 birthdays for a party of 4. We sure appreciated everything that the server did for us. She was amazing. Also, we didn't expect complimentary desserts for the birthday girls and a rose. That was amazing! Thank you for everything. We will be back.

Business meeting over a meal. Great food and service! Thoroughly enjoyed my meal including crab cocktail, NY Strip Steak and Brussels Sprouts! Steak could have been more red for Medium Rare but still tasty!

Ryan is a very attentive and pleasant server, and the steaks came out PERFECTLY. They use high quality selections of meat, and their drinks are amazing. Well blended, good bartenders, and they will accommodate if you want a specific brand of bourbon, whiskey, vodka, etc. The mashed potatoes were a bit runny tonight but the other sides were great. And their gluten free chocolate cake (more like a mousse cake) is devine! Definitely worth a visit!

We were on a double date for restaurant week. We lucked out and had the best waiter, James. He was incredibly knowledgable, friendly, and professional. His service truly enhanced our dining experience, which was fantastic. We have been there many times, and will definitely becoming back to request James as our server when we make our reservation.

The first place reviews of Consumer Reports in the steakhouse category are certainly deserved. No matter the city, a Capital Grille experience is always one I've found exceptional. This Pittsburgh location has always been well-run with top notch food and service. Even with the craziness of Pittsburgh Restaurant Week they were very efficient. And never looked down upon if choosing the high-value prix fixe offerings during Restaurant Week.

We had the best service through Seth and Sabrina. We felt so special. The atmosphere is black tie and the food never disappoints. It’s by far our favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh. We look forward to special occasions, as we always come here for them. I feel like a first class citizen here. Thank you capital grille for always delivering a perfect dining experience!

The food and ambiance were outstanding and a substantial value as it was Restaurant Week and the generous pour! There were six of us celebrating my birthday and a good time was had by all. Our server was efficient, almost too efficient. She seemed to hurry us and move the evening a long prematurely. We just had our wine poured and she tried to talk over us while my husband was in the middle of a toast. She interrupted every conversation. Our food came out non-stop without any time to enjoy. Spending over $600.00 for dinner, you don't want to be rushed in an hour and 15 minutes. I would recommend the Capital Grille. It is a beautiful venue and the food is really better than most steak houses in Pittsburgh.

This is one of my favorite places for restaurant week. I usually am never disappointed, but the service on this one was not up to its usual. We had two people bail from our party last minute and you’d think that it would make service better. I got a soda along with my two colleagues. Their drinks were refilled 2 and 3 times, mine was never touched. I was not even asked if I wanted a refill. Not sure if it was because I was a female and the waitress catered to my male counterparts but it did not go unnoticed. We also didn’t get my favorite bread, we were only given rolls which was not as disappointing as the service but it saddened me.

Food and service were excellent, except our server took an attitude when we told her we had a time constraint for lunch - everything was brisk and borderline aggressive. She practically threw plates at us and ran off. Disappointing, given this restaurant's reputation.

Our server Rebecca was very lovely and very attentive without being annoying. I told Rebecca I brought my son for a special dinner before he headed off to his first year of college. After dinner she surprised us with a beautiful dessert plate for my son that said congratulations on it. I was so touched. The whole experience was just wonderful! Highly recommend it.
