Cap Grille has the business meal service at lunch operating as a well-oiled machine! You can easily get in and out within the hour. And the lunch menu seems to be lightening up a bit with more salad and lighter fare options. Wait staff makes themselves available but not intrusive while you’re discussing business.

I took my girlfriend there for her birthday dinner, and we ate well and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Food was delicious - the steak and lobster dish was split for us by the kitchen and was cooked perfectly. They brought out a wonderful birthday dessert with the most amazing creme brulee cheesecake I've ever had. Major thanks to our excellent waitress Abigail - she was attentive and accommodating, and made it an excellent night.

The food was very good and the service was satisfactory. We sat in the main dining area. It was very noisy and loud. Quiet conversation was not an option. Very disappointing in that regard.

Cannot beat Capitol grill for a special occasion or nicer date night with my husband. have tried in several cities and always wonderful, but the Pittsburgh restaurant remains on top of the list for the service. Thank you for a wonderful evening with my Dad for his 91st and my sons 19th(my West Point cadet)

The food was fabulous!
Appetizers of steak and tuna tartare were presented beautifully and bursting with an elegant balance of flavor.
Bone-in waygu strip steak was phenomenal. Great service. Very good wine list. Cheesecake for dessert was the best I’ve had. A great dinner.

Excellent service. The filet oscar was superb as was the porterhouse...cooked to our specific perfection. We inadvertently left some papers at our table. When we arrived home, we noticed what we forgot. The restaurant found them (with the help of Tiffany, our great server) and mailed them to us. We appreciate the attention.

The service was top notch. One would think that this service is only provided to 2%ers in the world. But, The Capital Grille in Pittsburgh staff and managers provide you with first class service. If you are used to the fast time of food being sent out and not properly prepared then this would be the perfect place for one to experience how prep time and quality service of food should be handled. I will return and will definitely recommend to friends and family that visit or live in the Pittsburgh area.

We, as a party of six, celebrated Mother’s Day for dinner and had tremendous food. The service, though on our most recent visit was a bit subpar. Water glasses sat empty and staff was not as attentive as during previous visits. That being said, I always love the ambiance and food, which again did not disappoint.

Great Mother's Day at Capital Grille. The service for our table was very slow though. I watched people seated after us, eat and leave before my desert came. The food was great though! And the roses were a very nice touch.

Today was our annual Mother's Day Brunch at Capital Grille. As usually, the food was fantastic. But, our server was less than attentive today. We had to ask for another beverage and were not offered coffee with our dessert. In attrition, other tables near us received warm towels after their meal, as well as a flower for the mother(s) at the table. Today was the exception to the rule of outstanding service.

Overall the Capital Grille doesn't disappoint we were there for two very special occasions an 87th birthday and College graduation. The Waite staff was excellent giving the 87 year old a lunch to remember. Only downside was one of the steaks was under done but all in all well worth the cost.

The Bone in Ribeye was Excellent however both sides were mediocre. The sautéed mushrooms were too garlicky (and I’m half Italian).

The service was tremendous though. We’ll be back for this reason as well as the quality of the steaks. We’ll just try another side or perhaps just go with a salad.
