I love this place and normally it is perfect. There was a a group of people taking pictures on stairwell. They were loud and intrusive. Management should have said something. 2 couples in same room were trying to have a celebration. of their own. Very rude.

It’s hard to be over critical as the chef recognized the poor quality of the steak and offered to replace it, but honestly a $60 steak probably should not have to be sent back for poor quality. Maybe if cooked incorrectly but not because it was mostly fatty, chewy and extremely veiny. Thanks for offering but :
Merry Christmas.

The food was at subpar level, with my steak Tomahawk Bone in Filet ordered medium came back well done so did my wife’s Filet. The waiter was snobby and treated us as outsiders instead of regulars since we decided to eat on a Saturday as he stated with all the regular folks that come on the weekend which was super insulting. They did not try to make the situation right with my steak other than bringing another one nobody asked us if it was to be comped due to having to wait 15 min for my steak while my wife was already finished. Very poor don’t go if your not a regular since they don’t like outsiders.

Ashlee B and Capital Grille are a part of every holiday and special occasion. We love the food and the atmosphere. Ashlee B makes our experience special every time. Thank you!!!! The steaks are to die for. Always cooked perfectly. The sides re delicious hot and fresh. The price is exactly where I’d expect for food and experiences like the ones we get from Capital Grille!

Service was outstanding. Wait staff were professional, courteous and friendly. The ambiance at CG was excellent as usual. However, the turkey in the dinners was a huge disappointment. It did not look like or taste like real turkey. In fact it resembled something you would expect to get at a much lower quality restaurant and was way below the quality of food I expect when dining with Capital Grille. If I go back next Thanksgiving, I will order off the regular menu and will recommend to my dining partners to do the same

Fantastic place! We’ve been here quite times and it’s always great. All the servers and staff are always accommodating and take the best of care of customers. The food is always 5 star too. We have tried lunch and dinner and it never disappoints. There really is. Lying bad on the menu. I do however wish there was more to choose from on the lunch menu. But overall, it such a good, classy place that we highly recommend.

We have dined here several times, usually for a special occasion. The service is always impeccable. First class all the way. No rushing. No shortcuts. We are local Tampa residents and have several fabulous choices for steak dinner in the area. Best in Tampa is Capital Grill cut of your choice, prepared Kona rub with shallot butter. One of our guests had the salmon and declared it the best ever. If you are celebrating, let them know. They have a nice way of respecting your experience while adding an extra touch for the occasion.

Had a great time for my birthday! Food took a little too long to arrive however very nice manager named Amy was apologetic and gracious! It didn’t matter because when the lamb chops and lobster mac & cheese arrived it was heavenly! A memorable meal! Dana was our server and she was very accommodating and pleasant.

Went for spouse’s birthday. Staff was friendly. Sea bass was overcooked. Drain flies (or large gnats) were buzzing around our and other guests’ tables. $95 Australia Wagyu New York strip was OK, but not fabulous. There are much better options in Tampa with comparable pricing and ambiance.
