Meh-the service was great and kitchen was a well oiled machine. However, the food was very very boring (even for a steakhouse), and the atmosphere screamed status, and not much else. I felt sorry for the excellent staff working there. The little wine lockers at the front of the restaurant with patrons names on brass plates was particularly repulsive. If you really love wine, you wouldn’t store it that way- they had a huge wine storage room that would make more sense, but then you wouldn’t have your name on a fancy brass plaque. Overall felt empty and soulless, except for the excellent staff.

I was quite surprised that the turkey was actually from a turkey roll! As a nurse, I have experienced turkey roll served in some nursing homes to patients. It was tasteless and too salty. It would not be the stretch of my imagination that turkey roll is served at the jail on holidays; no fuss, no must. I know that the Thanksgiving Feast was probably a lead-in to attract new patrons to the Capitale Grille but how low could they go. My dinner companion and I laughed that we could have gone to Denny's and had real slices of turkey meat. If we had known that we would be served processed poultry, we would have opted for steak. Nevertheless, I would be remiss should I neglect to mention the ambiance, decorum, and service were impeccable. And I would go back next time for the rib eye!

Andy made our Thanksgiving!! Every, single member of the waitstaff and management we encountered on our visit Thanksgiving Day were superb. Each person was kind, welcoming, mannerable, and so very pleasant! Andy took special care of and paid attention to my MIL which was welcome after a week of family togetherness;). Each bite of steak and dessert were perfect as was the temperature of our Emmolo Merlot. Far better experience here than both locations we frequent at home in Houston! Happy holidays!

Everything was fabulous. I cannot point to one thing that could have been improved upon. We were a party of 5 and Amber was our server. Amber was completely on top of her game and did an outstanding job. All dishes were cooked perfectly - and we had a lot of menu items. The crab and lobster cakes were probably the best I’ve ever had, and I’m from the PNW. The oysters and tuna tartare were excellent. The lobster bisque actually had chunks of lobster. Our meals were steak, lamb, salmon, sea bass, and the Tomahawk. The lobster mac and cheese is a must. All items were outstanding! Also, the bartender knows how to make a drink - and we had an array of those, as well. Every one of the drinks we ordered were on point and well made. The chef made every one of our meals and side dishes to perfection. I have never had a bad experience here. Pricey, but so worth it because of the atmosphere and top level service.

A great steakhouse with friendly, competent service with perfect steaks. Aside from the steaks, there are many other offerings that are fantastic: For lunch the prime rib sandwich is one of the best sandwiches out there. Well worth the calories from the generous portion of meat. As for dinner, the Brussel sprouts are amazing, I would come here for this dish alone, they are that good! The other menu item that is surprisingly good is the cheesecake. Light, fluffy and topped with a brûlée - this is one of the best cheesecakes we have had.

I just wanted to thank all the Capital Grille staff for making my daughter’s 18th b-day special. From the stars on the linens, the handwritten birthday card, and the exquisite dessert. She (we) absolutely loved it! Not to mention that our food was delicious and the complimentary side was unexpected and extremely thoughtful. So, thank you very much! We’ll see you again!

After the symphony we stopped at Capital Grille for dinner. Convenient location and parking. The service and food were fabulous! My "medium well" steak was very tender & flavorful, with no fat or gristle on it. Great restaurant!

Steak tasted great. Lobster was good. Fresh clams! Drinks were $21 each but very good. I hated the scallop potatoes. They didn’t taste fresh but tasted boxed. They were gross. Service was kinda slow but overall it was a good experience and I’ll return.

We go to Capital Grill regularly but this time, to celebrate my husband's birthday and our daughter's 3rd wedding anniversary. Their service was impeccable and the food was great! They even surprised us with complementary dessert plates and hand written cards. I would call that a first class hospitality!
