Great job by Amber and her crew in suggesting food and drink and attending to our needs.

All 5 dinners were excellent. The Stolli drink was terrific (thanks to Amber for recommending). Plus, and most important, we celebrated 2 birthdays - my wife and my youngest son - and both were made to feel special. Terrific job all around. Thanks Amber and crew!

If I'm paying $50 for a steak the least they can do is keep the ladies room stocked with toilet paper and paper towels. Both were out while I was there. I alerted the staff, and 15 minutes later the bathroom still had not been serviced

My husband and I had a date night out and chose capital grille because I had never been there and wanted to try the food. We both got a filet and mine was good but my husband asked for his between medium rare and medium and I don’t know that our server understood what my husband requested and his filet came out medium rare and had to be cooked longer. The problem with doing that, is the filet never is as good once it’s put back on the grill. He got the bone in filet Oscar style and for $72 it just wasn’t worth the price. Also, we spilt a side of sams mashed potatoes and they were so lumpy and pretty tasteless. The wedge salad we each got to start with was fantastic though. We ended up spending over $300 between wine and food and it was just not that great. We will definitely not go back, i feel like we paid for the atmosphere not the quality of food.

We so enjoyed our dining experience at the Capital Grille. The atmosphere was cozy (we sat in the bar area)and the music set a nice atmosphere. The food was excellent! We had the chance to try several dishes and each one was better than the last. I have to say our server, Jade, was excellent! She was personable and attentive. She was well informed and willing to share her knowledge of the food and wines on the menu - very professional. I have already recommended the Capital Grille to several of my friends and family and recommend that they request a table in Jade's section.

Two co-workers and I met a former colleague to catch up over lunch. I had the cobb salad with steak. The food was fantastic, but slow even though it was not very busy that day. The waitress was kind & apologetic about the delay. I'm sure I'll go back anyway because the food is great.

This was my third time at the Capital Grille and it remains a fine restaurant. The service is impeccable and our wait staff headed by Margie was excellent. There were 4 of us total in the party, each enjoying a different meal. However, I will only comment on my meal since I have some complaints.

First, there is a nice selection on the menu but everything is ala carte. Appetizers are mainly seafood, something that does not appeal to me personally but others find great. There is a nice selection of soup and salad. The French Onion soup is very good, with a nice covering of cheese (bowl version) and a nice large slice of bread. Tasty with sufficient saltiness and not an overwhelming amount of onion. Some restaurants overdo the onion thinking that has to be the center of the soup.

Several steaks highlight the menu. I had the filet with steak butter. I opted to not take a rub and that was likely a mistake. I ordered the filet medium but it was a bit more medium well. The char on the outside was good though a corner of the steak was overly charred. Steak butter did nothing to add to the flavor and when I return (and I will) I plan on adding one of the rubs.

My companions had filet with a special rub, NY Strip and Salmon and all seemed to enjoy. We added sides of asparagus, mashed potatoes and potatoes au gratin to share. Sides are not sufficient for 4 people but 3 seemed right for sharing. The only side I tried was the au gratin and it was fine if not a bit too milky. Not sure what the flavor was there but it masked the potato flavoring. The other 3 enjoyed their sides.

We opted to not have desert but instead went across the street to the Milkshake Factory (excellent). All in all, a good experience with the service overcoming the shortcomings I found in my food (my companions enjoyed theirs immensely). I will return.

Every time we devote an evening to the Capital Grille it is memorable. We start in the bar with their very professional and friendly bartenders. Great wines and my martini is always well made. For dinner our steaks were unsurpassed. I chose the Kobe bone in Strip rare. Perfectly cooked of course and wonderfully flavorful. Kelley, our server, was friendly, attentive and helpful. Could not have been a better night unless it had been free!

Tuna tartare was too salty and didn’t have enough mango sauce. calamari was deep fried with breadcrumbs as plating when menu said it was pan fried. Manager changed to Stir fried with jalapeños. Was ok but could taste the calamari wasn’t fresh. Also asked for oil and balsamic as dressing for our salad. Waiter gave us balsamic instead of aged balsamic which I would expect from an establishment such as capital grille. Waiter didn’t apologize. Just brought us aged balsamic as we asked. Our food took an hour after we ordered to arrive. My salmon was overcooked. Told the waiter and all he said was he’ll let the manager know. Manager didn’t apologize and just said he’ll take off my salmon and calamari from our bill. I appreciated that but I rather have a good quality chargeable meal than a free poor quality meal. Gesture by the manager is very much appreciated. Just wished we didn’t have to wait for an hour to complain about our food.
My son had the tenderloin and lobster tail. He was happy with his meal.

Management and service were great. The kitchen over cooked 3/4 meals. Two of us sent it back-it was really not edible, and the steaks that came later were delicious. Overall, I really enjoy the ambiance, and the service and management are always fantastic. Our server Koy was really good!
