Our server was superb. As well as those who communicated with her about our issue with the tuna. A person in our group ordered rare tuna and it was well done. We mentioned it to an employee walking by and they immediately responded and shortly after presented her with a rare prepared tuna as she requested.

Excellent customer service and fast service. We loved our dining experience.

Both my husband and my son became sick after eating lobsters last night. They mentioned lobster tasted "too fishy" then broke out in rashes all over their faces and backs about an hour after eating. Neither are alergic to shellfish. Everything else was great, but this is very upsetting.

The kitchen was slow getting food out. It took 1-1/2 hours to deliver a caesar salad and a steak. I guess it's part and parcel to the difficulty in getting staff.

Service was great.

Lamb was served with out mint gelatin as requested and asked for three times until finally another waiter noticed me looking around and asked if he could help. Lamb was cold after waiting 20 mins for mint. I eat at Capitol Grill in Atlanta all the time and the lamb is served with mint.

The food was amazing. The service was unforgettable and we will definitely be returning. Antonio was on top of his game and I appreciated the call ahead to make sure everything was ready for us. They had confetti on the table and a congratulations letter on the table. They went above and beyond our expectations.

Fabulous as usual- A very gracious manager, (Steve Smith), oversees an efficient and attentive staff. The food is well prepared and delicious. - save room for dessert - the coconut cream pie is amazing! The wine list is outstanding. With so few lunch spots available these days this is my go to- I am never disappointed-

We celebrated my daughter’s wedding. Our server Chris made it extra special and memorable. There were rose petals on the table and he started us off with champagne to toast. We ordered ribeye steaks and were able to switch the sauces on the steaks. Also ordered the salmon, tuna and sea bass entrees. Everything was delicious. Chris then brought desserts, cheesecake and coconut cream, also very delicious!

We felt very special on our anniversary with a rose petal covered table and great service with a nice happy anniversary card. It was hand written. We got a complement champagne and dessert- so thoughtful!

The ribeye bone-in was cooked to perfection In a basaltic vinaigrette sauce and my husband‘s surf and turf was incredible. We had a wonderful time here and will be back again

Took customers to post Seahawk game dinner. Turned out to be the most exceptional ways to finish the evening. Starting with the absolute best service (hard to find in dining anymore), to perfectly cooks steaks, wine, and yummy dessert. Our party of 6 were served our meals simultaneously so we could all start our meals without waiting. If you don’t like steak, the seafood options were terrific. The seared ahi was the most perfect piece of fish I have had in a while. Capitol Grille never fails to impress, but this one, mostly due to our waiter and staff, made it the best one I have experienced yet.

Unfortunately, the food was not good. The steak had no flavor and was burnt, the mashed potatoes tasted like instant potatoes. They were runny and cold. The wedge salad had their ranch version of blue cheese. I would not recommend dining here, especially for the cost.

I really love The Capital Grille, but they could make an interior design change which would please me and I’m sure many others.
The display of dead animal heads throughout the restaurant is truly off-putting.
I eat meat and we all know where our steak comes from, but we do not visit a slaughterhouse for fun.
This is 2021; not 1961.
I will continue to patronize The Capital Grille. You will not sell one fewer steaks if these dead heads are removed and replaced with art.
Thank you,
Your Devoted Customer

They have an extensive steak listing, but we go to the Capital Grill for the seafood and have never been disappointed. The crab cocktail is generous in portion and always very fresh. For the main course, I had the lobster tail special which was excellent--the meat was very tender and sweet. The spouse enjoyed the seabass. We finished the dinner by sharing a serving of fresh berries with creme fraiche.

Outstanding! Visited tonight to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It couldn't have been more perfect. We arrived to a rose petal topped table complete with a card wishing us well. Our server, Jessica, was incredible. Super friendly, answered all of our menu and wine questions with ease - she was just wonderful! Dinner itself was amazing. My filet mignon was so tender, I barely needed a knife to cut it. My husband had the rib eye and it was equally delicious. For starters we had the dungeness crab cocktail (phenomenal!) and oysters (not my thing but hubby said they were amazing). Our meal was capped off with another special anniversary wish from the restaurant - complementary sparkling wine with dessert. They really went out of their way to make a special evening even more special. This was our first visit to Capital Grille but it definitely won't be our last!

Over $1,000 bill. 5 orders of sea bass was too rich. 3 people ate only half and 1 person ate just 1 bite. Lamb ribs were over cooked for medium rare. Only ate a few bites. Server never asked us how was the food. Poor service and extremely disappointed in the food quality and flavor.
