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!

Service excellent, food a little overdone but still worthy.

Noise level reasonable and allowed a conversation to be carried on.

I took my teen grandchildren there for the second time. The grandson loves the steak. Says it’s the best he ever had. Granddaughter ate every bite of her tuna steak. My steak was cooked perfectly

My only comment is that I wish there were a smaller filet on the menu

We celebrated three family birthdays and The Grille did not disappoint. The men all had the Kona crusted NY Strip with shallot butter and raved about it. I had the Filet Mignon - perfectly cooked and tender. We shared sauteed spinach, roasted mushrooms and mashed potatoes as sides - although it was way too much food. And, on top of our complimentary birthday dessert (a little cheesecake and a little flourless chocolate cake - both superb), we all ordered desserts - strawberries with cream, banana cream pie, creme brulee and chocolate cake - every one perfectly presented and delicious. Definitely a great place for to celebrate special occasions!

We always go out to eat for my late father’s birthday. We enjoyed our waiter Nico. The rest of the staff were very attentive too. My husband LOVES your cracker bread and butter. Everyone enjoyed their entrees except my lobster tails didn’t have any taste. Both the waiter and the manager asked if I would like to replace it with something else. I declined as I was no longer hungry for an entree and finished my asparagus. My husband loves the porcini rub on the filet and ate every last bite. My father in law enjoyed his steak and my mother in law enjoyed her chicken.

We come here all the time. We love the food, the service and the overall experience. Our favorite server Ashlee B always makes us feel special and like we are her only table. My husband has Celiacs and they have an amazing gluten free menu and are very knowledgeable!!!

We have dined here every Christmas Eve for the last 12 years and we are disappointed that the last two years we have not gotten our request where we wanted to sit. Even when we made the reservations 2 months in advance. This time we were placed in the bar with 6 of us. Sadly we will no longer be celebrating our Christmas Eve with you.

Quality of food was very good, waiting time for the main course was too long (- allegedly because of a large party slowing down the kitchen for the rest of the clientele.

Delicious as always! Ken was fabulous, as was Jay who served us in the bar. Hostesses at front very welcoming.
My only beef is that we were there really early (no problem waiting in the bar), but when they went to seat us, they sat us in the bar area. I would think they would have asked us which we preferred since I did book through Open Table. Noise level a little too loud for two people. I would have appreciated being seated in the restaurant area.

We arrived 15 minutes early and were accommodated. Staff was friendly and professional. Room was busy with a lot of football fans.
Food was delicious as always. Very consistent. Especially the calamari.
