Just not the level of service you are used to at the Capital Grill Sarasota. No teamwork and our server was trying to take care of too many tables/guests out in the patio with little to no help.

The server was exceptional and the steaks were excellent.

We were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful free dessert plate my wife got for her birthday.

The only negative was the mashed potato. It was really bad, but overall we really enjoyed the whole experience.

I highly recommend it.

Not inexpensive but never had a meal here I did not enjoy. Service is always outstanding. They seemed to have all the booths filled and then kept an empty row of tables in between for distancing. Just make sure you are comfortable with that.

Very good in "social distancing" and staff wearing masks. They did a great job to make guests comfortable and food preparation was excellent. Staff had a great attitude in making you satisfied. The best place we have been for social distancing and cleanliness.

The table was set up for a special occasion, which was a surprise. And much appreciated.
The server was awesome and attentive. The food...well hit and miss. Ordered a lobster and crap cake appetizer that was clearly a reheated option and cold in the middle. At least one of the two crap cakes were cold...not cool, I mean cold in the middle.

The steak was okay, but expected great. Cooked perfect on one half and the other half was part raw.

Just not a consistent experience. After reading other reviews it seems clear it depends on the server and who’s cooking that day. While the experience was wonderful, the food was so, so.

Very disappointing Steak House experience. We had been looking forward to a truly great steak for my Husband's birthday. We found the waiter to be officious and inept- plates for the first course were removed before everyone done; one diner's empty entree plate remained after dessert and check, etc. The Wedge Salad we shared was mediocre at best; three of the 4 entrees were good; but the NY strip was very tough and tasteless. Although they took the entree off the bill, the one thing that a steak house should be counted on for, is tasty, tender, properly cooked prime steak. We will not return.

I order my steaks “Black and Blue” which is very rare. I’ve always gotten them that way in the past but this time I’d say it was rare at best. I didn’t complain because I was with my wife and two friends for my birthday and I didn’t want to disrupt the flow.

Our first visit since COVID - we were very pleased at the social distancing and mask wearing - no particular concerns about disease transmission, although it would be nice, for reference, for the restaurant to describe what health checks they are doing on employees to ensure everyone’s safety. Food was absolutely outstanding as always - my filet mignon was superb, and I could not even finish the portion. Wife lived her lamb chops. The Buratta and tomato appetizer was really good. We got the calamari and peppers app which is a favorite but it kind of ruined our appetite for everything else. We brought our own wine and paid a reasonable corkage fee of &25.00, they were very courteous and helpful with that. Capital Grille remains a favorite because of their consistent excellence!

Always the best, and always great to see my fav bartender, Roy. Only stopped in for a cocktail and some butcher cuts for the weekend but I enjoyed every minute chatting with the staff. Tim, Jennifer, Robert, Roy and the rest of the staff always make me feel like family.

Very disappointed in how booths were seated considering COVID. Every booth was seated no separation with shields. They should be seating every other booth. Did not feel safe.
Food & service was excellent but no care for safety of customer,

Capital Grille is consistently a good choice for delicious food and top-notch service in a pleasant setting. We generally like to dine at the bar. Cocktails are well made. I always enjoy their pumpernickel bread with salted butter. So good when it's warm out of the oven with a slightly crispy crust!

What can I say? It's always delicious. We had the filets, cooked perfectly. Lobster mac 'n cheese--yum! Meiomi is always so good, but we do wish it was more reasonably priced, since can buy Meiomi for less than $20/bottle at the grocery store. Delightful dinner, we'll be back for more.

I am normally a big fan of the food but I have to say my salmon was overcooked/dry and when I told the waiter, he did not offer a replacement nor an apology. In the end, and maybe in an attempt to make it up to me, he sent me home with a few rolls which I do love. Disappointed, nonetheless.
