We went there for a birthday lunch. The table had little confetti, they brought champaign flutes and 2 small desserts with happy birthday in chocolate on the plate. The food was delicious and good portions. The staff were professional and friendly. Overall great experience.

My wife and I believe they switched the doneness of our steaks, which would be fine if they were the same cuts. When you are paying $56 for a steak it ought to be great. I am happy to spend $200 on dinner, if it is good. This was not a good experience. The bread basket and lobster/crab cakes were fantastic and our server was good.

Sat in the bar to enjoy a leisurely and "snack-y" dinner before an event at Benaroya. Our bartender, Corine, provided informed recommendations, was appropriately personable and particularly conscientious - noticing we like to share she thoughtfully served our amazing tenderloin sliders with the 3rd one sliced in half in advance. She offered to store our leftovers for pick up following our program and then sent us home with bottled water. First class!

Exceptional food and especially service. An increasingly rare art, our server was friendly, attentive, informative, but never obtrusive. A pet peeve is waiters who interrupt conversations throughout the meal to blare "EVERYTHING OK SO FAR?". Just come to the table or catch our eye and we'll let you know.

We enjoyed oysters, lobster bisque, a wedge salad and filet mignon. All prepared perfectly. And we dined in a beautifully decorated back room, with a warm and traditional ambience.

This was our fourth visit, and we'll be back again.

Got the best service from Omar, our waiter. It was all the little things - he saw I was wearing dark pants so he gave me a black napkin instead of the white one on the table. I had forgotten my phone, and he saw me waiting at my table and asked if I'd like a newspaper. So attentive and kind!

This was the most overpriced, lackluster meal I've ever had. We ended up packaging up 95% our $200 meal and giving it to a homeless person on the way home. The crème brulee was delicious, but other than that it was awful. The service and the atmosphere were great, thus the only reason they got any stars at all.

The food was excellent. The sea bass was perfectly prepared, the lobster was properly steamed so it remained tender, and the salads were excellent. Best of all was the perfect service from Mr. Cruz: pleasant, with good suggestions, and prompt without being intrusive.

Absolutely fabulous. This was a special occasion and the Capital Grille went out of there way to carry on the theme. My granddaughter just was told she got the internship she had interviewed for and I was also meeting her boyfriend for the first time. At our table was a congratulations card and sprinkles of stars on the table. The lunch and service was exquisite and the additional surprise was a congratulatory dessert. It was amazing and I was one proud grandma.

The actual restaurant was great. The food was all delicious, the staff was friendly and helpful. Your online reservation system is frustrating. The name on all emails was wrong, and we received an automated "sorry we missed you" which I found passive aggressive, when we were 25 minutes late and the restaurant had at least 10 open tables to seat us.

Went in on a Saturday night at 7 PM. Was seated immediately, spacious booth for four (or more) people, noise level allowed good conversation at the table. After being seated there was a immediate follow up with taking our drink order. Hot breads were brought to the table (the garlic bread was incredible) and our order was taken. Amber was our server and we could not have asked for more attentive service. The food was what we expected and more...and we found out why their au gratin potatoes should be a side dish for the table. We even ordered more as a "take out". Going back in May.

I spent $100 on a steak that was pretty flavorless and for being wagyu beef, wasn’t that tender. I enjoyed the sides and the service but I would not order this food again.

Thank you so much for a wonderful lunch. We had a mix-up with our meal time, but the staff was very courteous in allowing us to communicate and waited patiently to take our orders.

They also did a special note and offered little extras to help us celebrate a special occasion. A very nice experience!

Average everything from this chain restaurant. I started with the beet salad: standard, nothing special about it. Beets were sliced thin which made them challenging to eat. I then had the lamb chops (8 bones), healthy serving. Asked for medium rare and one set of bones were cooked as ordered; the second set of bones were cooked medium to medium well. Mild lamb flavor and underseasoned. My companion had a steak; cooked as ordered (medium), but OK in texture and taste. Service wasn't great - missing flatware; missed a dessert order; given the incorrect tea (ordered English breakfast, given Darjeeling); given the wrong check at the end of the meal. We were seated in a room with only 4 tables, which I liked. Kudos to the maitre d, however. She was welcoming, smiling, friendly. Otherwise, it wasn't a memorable meal or experience. It's a chain, though. Keep your expectations in check.

The meat is very good, but comes with a price tag. The tuna as a starter could not match the main course. The fish was good quality but the dressing was very simple.

The Capital Grille was outstanding and the food was delicious. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the lobster Mac n’ Cheese was awesome. This place would be 5 Stars except for two things. 1) The decor is a bit weird with deer heads on the wall and a statue of lady justice by the entrance. 2) The cocktails need a bit of work and were way too strong. As a Navy sailor, I know my way around a bar, and this one needs a bit of help. Otherwise the evening was perfect with exceptional food. BTW, the bus boys are hilarious. They were talking crap is Spanish thinking no one could understand them.

While we were seated a little late and one member of our party was served a cut of steak that was not to their liking, the staff at Capital Grille exceeded all expectations. We were serviced in an expeditious manner once sat (in order to make a showtime) and the Manager noticed my friend's facial expressions when trying his steak. She approached and offered to bring a different steak out, which she did in just a few minutes. The food was exceptional and the service really stood out above and beyond what I've experienced in most restaurants.
