    Steak is fantastic. Cocktails were good too. Ambiance is very nice. Larger portions than expected, especially with the lamb. Service was a little off. Not much to complain about but with a higher end place I'd expect service to be impeccable. I'm surprised we weren't offered a wine list. Server was missing for long periods of time. We were here for our anniversary last year and treated to some extra things which was nice; this time even though I marked it on open table as an anniversary there was no mention of it. Another table that also had an anniversary had a different server and that server asked if there was any special event and they were treated accordingly. It's piddly little stuff I know but this isn't the Outback Steakhouse, I'd expect better for this caliber of restaurant. We'd probably come back, sometimes people can have off nights.

    We have been to Capital Grill in Sarasota many times over the years as we live there. The food is good and our server was great. However, we stopped going for a while because the restaurant is always too cold. We decided to try it again and it does not matter if you sit in the dinning room or the bar area, its cold. I am tired of cold restaurants! It is more comfortable eating outside on the patio than inside. If it is 65 degrees outside, it feels like 60 inside. One other issue, my wife cannot have gluten food. No problem, can order fish which was good. But it would be really nice if they had gluten free bread or deserts available. Many restaurants in Sarasota have changed to to gluten free alternatives, but Capital Grill is a little behind the times. We will not be rushing back.

    45 minutes wait even though we had reservations on a Thursday eve. We got a nice booth, prompt server and goos service. The food, which consisted of French onion soup and filet mignon and cheese cake was excellent which it’s better be for the very expensive prices a la carte. Definitely not worth it and no value at all. Nice room and decor and a fancy steakhouse but for sure overpriced.

    We've been dining at the Capital grille in Colorado for 25 years. We're really glad that there's a Capital grille here in Sarasota. The meal was excellent, our server Anna was top notch! Only issue... The hostess wasn't on top of it, a lot of confusion and poor seating management on her part. Many people with reservations standing around waiting for their table at 4:45 when the restaurant was empty. She needs serious training or needs another vocation.

    The 10 oz filet was ridiculously delicious and I will be getting 3 meals out of it with leftovers; it was mind-boggling. Service is always exceptional at the Capital Grille & the best I've had anywhere. We tipped graciously. It was my birthday outing and they went the extra mile for sure. The little South African lobster tails were less enticing than I had hoped for and really didn't have much flavor, so I would skip those next time, unless they have Maine 🦞 Lobstah Tails available. Prices were so astronomical that we couldn't stop laughing. $105. for my surf and turf. What's a birthday for! 😂

    We had a wonderful lunch. We ordered the calamari appetizer which was huge and delicious! Not overcooked or tough. Next we had the tenderloin sandwich with truffle fries, and the Cobb salad. Both we delicious ! If we do lunch again, we would order one appetizer and we will share the sandwich because it was enough for two people. Service was attentive and atmosphere/noise level allowed for conversation. The Capital Grill never disappoints.

    It was a great experience. I made a reservation online here and in the comment I wrote it was my husbands birthday. The moment we arrived, we were seated at a lovely booth decorated with confetti and a birthday card. We had a delicious dinner with a wonderful server and then they brought out a yummy dessert with a candle. It was a great birthday!
