The Capital Grille has become one of our favorites because the quality of the food and the service is consistently top notch. We enjoyed our birthday celebration there and thank our waitress, Kate, for making it even more special.

Consistently wonderful. Each time we dine here the food, wine and service exceed expectations. It would be great if a vegetarian/vegan entree could be added to the menu.

Food WAY, WAY, WAY overpriced. You can make a better steak at home. Filet was overcooked, dry, and flavorless.

We’ve had Diane Pace three or four times now as a waitress and she is always the best. Great service and great food. Can’t find a better steak anywhere else and their truffle fries are to die for.

Worst steak experience in any Capital Grille. I am a frequent diner at Capital Grille (DC, VA, Orlando, etc). I had their special bone-in filet and it was over cocked despite requesting medium temperature. They took it back and chef brought a different steak. This time it was nearly raw. I felt embarrassed for the server that I just paid for it and did not complain further, but was not able to eat beyond first bite. The bread and burrata appetizer were sufficient but will think twice before coming back to this location for a steak.

Had a birthday dinner with my girlfriend. Asked for Melissa as my server. Couldn’t decide on my red wine blend. Melissa brought about seven wine glasses and as many red wines until we were happy with our wine choice. Shared an incredible steak dinner with all the trimmings. Just a great time in a truly great restaurant, great service and a perfect complimentary birthday dessert. What more could you want!

We go to the Capital Grille frequently and almost always are very pleased with the food. But on Father’s Day it was not quite up to its standards. Yes, it was busy, but they should have been prepared for that. At 715pm they were out of clam chowder. The potatoes au gratin were dry...usually they are wonderfully creamy. And my steak had some gristle...a big no no for filet mignon. So we probably will pass on any other holidays there.

I was very disappointed. I had a reservation, was there on time. The hostesses attempted to put us in a back room with a very large party of over 20 people who were seated at a large table. There were 2 additional tables in the room and the hostess wanted to put us at one. I objected to the location, so we were marched back out to the hostess stand (passing at least 5 empty tables) to have another table selected for us. We were neatly dressed not in shorts as some in the restaurant, so why did they want to hide us away in the back? When ordering my filet, I requested med. rare. The waiter suggested medium as it would be pink throughout. So I ordered medium which was really not pink, definitely overdone. In all, disappointing and we will not be back.

Steaks were of coarse very good and cooked to order. Wedge salads looked sloppy and tossed together. They must have made them ahead of time because they came out very quickly. Sides of Brussels sprouts and mushrooms were very over cooked. Sub par for a place we expected more.
