We went over for a late Valentine's Day celebration. I was excited to get the tuna but unfortunately the experience was less than stellar this time around. My soup was too salty and the tuna was cold. Understandably the piece is seared and not cooked thoroughly inside, so it shouldn't be hot but it was COLD . My rice had obviously been sitting for some time as well as it was hard. I did ask for a new portion of rice and it was much better.

We frequently visit Ruth's Chris and I was just reaffirming why with this visit. I don't think we will visit Capital Grille again any time in the future.

Our table was ready when we arrived, our waitress was very nice and her suggestions were right on the money, the serving size was very large and the food was very tasty. We had a lot of food to take home.
We will be back in the very near future.

Fantastic service and food to match. Only issue was that my mom’s dish was severely overdone (lobster and steak) but they offered to make a new plate and the rest of the meal was stellar.

We got there a little early on Valentines Day, but the hostess accommodated us early. We were escorted upstairs to a a private room which was lovely. Lauren was a great server on a night that was so busy. I had the lamb and my husband had the tuna. They were both delicious. I had the bohemian to drink which was light and refreshing. The lobster Mac and cheese was to die for. The night ended with Lauren giving me a rose and two chocolate strawberries to share. Very nice touch! We will be definitely going again!

The waiter team of Mario and Daniel were fantastic - we were treated like family and they even took the time to review our preferences from prior visits. We always sit on the bar side because we like the ambience and the service is just as superb as sitting in the restaurant. Daniel even had his equally outstanding co-worker “Mommy” make us Cuban coffee even though it’s not on the menu. Well done!

What can I say. This is a great steakhouse chain and this location is good and consistent. Great service, excellent food, generous cocktails. Just know that with a couple of drinks and tip it’s going to be $100/plate or a little more. But I’m a born and bred American and America does steak houses right. I really can’t think of a much better place for a quality, comfortable, luxurious meal. Long live the American steak house. Try the soy glazed Brussels sprouts and the mushrooms for great sides. Nuff said!

Great food, huge portions. We ordered split portions of the wedge salad , rib lamb chops and cauliflower au gratin. Plenty of food perfectly prepared. A bit pricey but split for 2 it was fairly reasonable. We also indulged in dessert which was not as BB good as the rest of our meal.

Capital Grille is superb! The food is incredible, and the service is the best! Our server, Donna, is truly the most talented, attentive, and knowledgeable server we have ever had anywhere! She is extraordinary!
We always enjoy the ambiance, and I must mention how kind the front desk staff are. They are so welcoming and friendly.

We had an outstanding meal the other night! We actually shared one of the special (entrees) as it was a 10oz. Yagyu steak and 2 S. African lobster tails. Absolutely outstanding! I must mention our server, Craig Anderson. He MADE the evening for us - so nice and upbeat. We will always ask for him when we go.

Going to the Capital Grille is a big deal for us. We know the food and the service will be excellent and we are never disappointed. Keep us the good work, and as a side note, NEVER stop serving the raisin pumpernickel bread. Love it!
