Always my go-to place for special occasions! I love the wonderful wine selections and food that is served with a staff that is well trained, personable, very knowledgeable and friendly. In addition to steaks cooked to perfection, I must also compliment The Capital Grille on their delectable bread....always a favorite of mine!

I would definitely recommend this restaurant!!

Food taste was bland for both dishes, especially for the price. Felt as though I could have got a more flavorful meal at Seasons 52 for half the price.

Fantastic meal as always. We have been multiple times now and every time is superb. The whole staff is welcoming and kind. Very knowledgeable and prompt as well. We were celebrating my wife’s birthday this time and they even decorated the table. Prices we fair and you definitely get what you pay for.

Our waiter was fantastic, there when you needed him but didn’t hover. Armordor (sorry not the correct spelling) is a true professional the kind you see only at fine restaurants. We had the filet and butter lobster it was delicious

The food her is excellent always , as well as the libations and wines. This time we tried the Australian lobster tail which was perfectly cooked and with exquisite taste, definitively better than any main Lobster. Bone in filet of great taste although the temperature in all our steaks were over, but we decided not to change as the taste was perfect. Great Oysters to start with a very nice burrata salad.
Excellent service by Melanie.
This is a place food is always right.

Meal was delicious, as always. Service, exceptional. Special touch: we’re celebrating an anniversary. When we got to our table, there was confetti on it and a card. And after the meal, they presented us with a plate of mini desserts and champagne. CLASS ACT!

We always have great food and service at Capital Grill— regardless of location. However, the Chilean sea bass was subpar. Check your source— should be better than this, particularly in Florida.

A fantastic evening at The Capitol Grille. From the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella cheese to the delicious steaks, it was a memorable evening. Made even more special by our server, Nancy. Nancy was personable and knew the menu and provided excellent recommendations. My only issue is that for filet steaks, there is only a 10 ounce portion available. Although tender, juicy and flavorful, it is too much meat for most persons. I would recommend The Capitol Grille offer a "Petite Filet" for those of us with smaller appetites.

The food was good--Would I say excellent? Probably not. The portions are small and the prices are high. The place has no decor - lacks luster. The service was impeccable, tho.

Food, service and wine are always excellent. That is why we return so often. Whether we are looking for some small plates and a drink in the bar or are celebrating an Anniversary or Birthday with a big yummy meal and a great bottle of wine, CG has it covered. Tim Fanning and Team in Sarasota are a perfect example of the quality of food & service we expect from Capitol Grille.

Our server Mary was wonderful! Mary helped us navigate the menu both for food, cocktails and wine. She was knowledgeable and very delightful. We could tell she loves her profession. Additionally Capital Grille made the birthday dinner extra special. We highly recommend this as a special occasion restaurant or even just a place where you will be so happy with your orders. Well done Capital Grille! thank you
