The Capital Grille - Pittsburgh Ratings and Reviews
Given they are a chain, we were VERY skeptical. But Capital was SO much better than we thought -- our steaks were perfect and so were the mashed potatoes. The green beans needed some seasoning, but were cooked perfectly. Dessert was what you would expect -- nothing amazing, but satisfying. Service was excellent and attentive. They could use a few more affordable wines by the bottle.
We love the dry aged bone-in steak here. This time, we had to send one back because it was overcooked, but the restaurant was good in addressing it and bringing a new steak, properly prepared. Some of the wines by the glass are quite overpriced for what they are (i.e. $12 a glass for $10 a bottle wine), but there is a good selection. The flourless chocolate dessert is so good. Service is always outstanding.
Food: terrific, table service: wonderful, hostess: leaves a lot to be desired. When you have a reservation, you expect to go to a table, and if one is not quite ready, you expect to be told that, and invited to wait in the bar, not ignored for almost 15 minutes.
The restaurant week menu was great, good choices for everyone, the food was outstanding, as was the table service, but when you start off on the wrong foot, you're not encouraging customer loyalty.
My fiance and I went for restaurant week in Pittsburgh and they had an amazing deal. $35 for a 3 course meal. The caesar salad was average, the 8oz filet mignon was perfect, and the flourless chocolate cake was to die for. Soooo good. My fiance had the strip steak, which he liked, but a little too fatty for me. He also had the cheesecake, which was also amazing. If anything, just go for late night dessert if you're feeling fancy!
My wife, myself and her brother picked the Capital Grille in Pittsburgh for the Winter Restaurant Week 2018 event just held. We like to pick a place that we have never visited and this year's choice was the Capital Grille and what a great choice that was! For the $35.18 meal we all had the 14oz Strip Steak from the special menu which included wonderful mashed potatoes and fresh green beans and we also each picked a desert off the menu. The steaks were cooked exactly as requested, the potatoes were creamy and delicious and the green beans were superb. The deserts were the perfect ending to a perfect meal. This was truly one of the great restaurants we visited in the many Restaurant Week events we have attended and is a place we would recommend to everyone.
We took advantage of the Pittsburgh Restaurant Week menu and thoroughly enjoyed our delicious meals. It’s a great way to enjoy a nicely priced meal here. Service was also very good. My only complaints are the high wine prices (wines priced under $40 a bottle are few and far between) and a minor point that seemed out of place for such a polished establishment; We arrived wearing heavy topcoats and no one offered to hang them up, so we threw them on the seat beside us.
We chose to go the Wednesday during Restaurant Week because our prior experiences have been excellent. However, this time wasn't as good as usual. For some reason, not explained to us, it took over half an hour for our entrees to arrive after we had finished our salads. Other tables that came in after us were being served, so I blame it on our waiter Ken. During our long wait, it was like everyone was avoiding us, only one visit to ask it we wanted more bread. For what should have been an hour to an hour and a quarter meal, we were there almost two hours. Will still give them another opportunity because of our prior experiences.
Went restaurant week with my daughters for lunch. Very crowded which was to be expected given the quality of food for restaurant week pricing. I had the lobster bisque for a $5 up charge and the salmon and cheesecake bite for dessert. The bisque had a good bit of lobster but the flavor was just ok. Salmon was very good and the cheesecake bite with berries was very good too. My girls had the steak and side salad. They asked for medium well but the steak was unevenly done--one end was medium and the other was well done. Flavorful but unevenly cooked. My older daughter had the wedge salad for appetizer which was very good and my younger daughter had the clam chowder which had a fantastic flavor. I would go with either of those over paying add'l $5 for the less flavorful lobster bisque. One daughter had the cheesecake bite and like me, enjoyed it and the other had the flourless chocolate cake bite. The chocolate cake is very rich and needed a dollop of whipped cream In lieu of the berries to offset the rich chocolate flavor. We really like the Capital Grille and usually go only for special events so we try to take advantage whenever restaurant week comes around.
We dined during Restaurant Week, which added to the crowd. The fixed-priced menu for Restaurant Week featured the Grill's favorites and provided plenty of choices. I had a filet and grilled shrimp, which were good, but apparently cooled while awaiting service. The server was friendly and efficient. While the food was tasty, it wasn't extraordinary. If you just want a good steak and potatoes, this restaurant fills the bill. If you want something special, stick to the appetizers.
Took advantage of Restaurant Week menu. Food was excellent as always! Only thing lacking was the service. Waitress became annoyed when I asked for the Restaurant Week menu and from there on did her job at a minimum. Regardless, food was excellent and will definitely go back again.
Other than a slight wait even with a reservation, everything about this place was amazing. The service, food, and overall experience were great. The wine was a bit overpriced even for fine dining restaurants but again, the check came and we paid them what they wanted with no issues. Definitely recommend and we will definitely return!
The food was alright. The filets for $46.00 seemed overpriced. They were very good, however, everything else was additional. The salad for $11.00 was not worth the price. The 4 sides were alright. We had the au gratin potatoes which we all felt were kind of tasteless. The first time we had gone to the Capital Grille the meal was exceptional. This time we all felt it was just ok.
The waiter we had was exceptional. He knew everything there was to know on the menu and was very attentive. We felt he was excellent!
