There was the usual friendly and efficient check-in, and we were pleasantly surprised to see Giovanni and Co would be taking care of us! We had a delightful meal working with him a while back, and he was again on top of his game - the service was outstanding!! I tried the Lamb, I like medium rare chops, and when done properly, they are delicious. These were pretty good... Some of the chops were thicker than others, which is always going to present a "doneness" challenge no matter how you cook them, as it did here. This is the demerit reflected in my food rating, as everything else was great.

It was Valentine's 2018. Even though I had reservations it took a long time to get a table and 35 minutes to get a drink. My wife's lobster was great but my steak was very under cooked. Kitchen appeared to be very rushed. Our server was apologizing to all four tables he had responsibility for. The BRAND is much better than how they performed on this particular night.

El Bisque de Porcini Mushrooms fenomenal pero el término de mi NY Strip añejo se pasó, lo pedí medio rojo y me lo trajeron 3/4 el Bone In Filet de mi esposa lo solicitó medio y se lo trajeron medio rojo; la carta de vinos vale la pena

This is our first choice for special "couple evenings". Our server, Jill, always makes us feel special, the noise level is comfortable compared to most larger eateries, and food is always top shelf. We'll be back again soon. Thanks for making us feel special.

Our meal was delicious! Will return when we can. Wait staff was attentive, knowledgeable, and prompt with ordering and meal details. We were pleasantly surprised at the fullness of the restaurant. Parking can be a little difficult, but not impossible. I don't mind walking a little.

The Veal Chop was too chewy and the replacement lamb chops were a bit tough. The Steak au Poivre had so much pepper that the good sauce was hard to taste unless I ate it separately. The restaurant seemed to care but it is no fun to be complaining as this was a special occasion.

I have dined at Capital Grill approximately 1-2 times per year for the last 15+ years. Every year, the quality has gradually decreased. Compared to similar steak house (Mastro's, Steak 44, and Dominick's, etc), Capital Grill is substandard. The veal chop was not cooked right, the portion of crab legs was small for the $60.00 price tag, and the swordfish was undercooked in the center. This was not unique. The portion sizes of the sides were small as well. The quality did not match the price tag nor did the ambience. It feels like a chain restaurant, not a high quality steakhouse like you should expect. This is a restaurant that has become too comfortable in its name. I will not return to Capital Grill. It simply isn't worth it anymore.

Great food.
Excellent service.
Nice surroundings.
Small bar seating.
Only complaint is that they moved us to a different table after we had been seated.
Would go back. It is quite expensive but serving are large and sharing was not an issue.
