we are usually very happy with the meals here but this time my filet was overcooked, my meal was supposed to have mushrooms and they were missing and my haricot vert were almost raw. my husband’s meal was perfect- which is why i gave it 3 stars and not 2

Lauren, our bartender/ server today was professional and attentive- thank you. I love Capital Grille- the consistent, high quality food and stellar service. However, three disappointments: 1) They have never had a happy hour- when virtually every other similar, chain restaurant in the city has one. 2) It would be nice to provide a rewards program for their frequent diners- again, when most, near-by establishments offer one, and 3) although I truly appreciate the country-club feel of the restaurant (i.e. dark atmosphere & wood paneling), this location just seems to need a bit of an update.

We, the 4 of us, were there for the Waygu burgers and wine. One of us asked for another glass of wine which was $23. She suggested he get the burger special to go for $25, which included the wine!

Very nice touch on her part.

The server was friendly and we had a good time. Although, the runners/bussers were in a rush out of the kitchen and would just run over you and not apologize. Our waiter caught it and apologized, but they really need to work on just standard service and the rule of thumb where you stop and let the guest pass you first.

We were celebrating an anniversary and decided to try Capital Grille for the first time. The server was friendly and attentive. We split the wedge salad which was delicious. Drinks were good. Then we got the entrees. At over $50 each you want your entree to sing with a good balance of flavors and to be executed well. Both entrees were not cooked to the desired doneness and the lobster in one of the dishes was cooked so long that it resembled rubbery shrimp. The flavors in the lobster mac and cheese lacked the finesse one would expect from an $18 side dish. In short there was nothing special about it.

For the price I expected my porterhouse steak to be perfectly cooked. It was a bit too charred for medium well. Service and staff was good. Didn't feel like fine dining with people wearing hoodies. Felt like a chain restaurant instead of an intimate mom and pop feel. Would I go back? I'd probably just go for Bern's instead since their porterhouse was amazing. But, otherwise meh. Maybe.

This visit was the second time this month we dined at Capital Grille...this was also a the second time we asked for our leftover spinach, mac n cheese and truffle fries to take home along with our left over fillets...we discovered at home after the first visit, we were shorted the mac n cheese and the spinach, mistakes happen,... the second visit on 24 Oct 2017,...upon seating , it was mentioned to our server ( who was also our server at the earlier visit of this month) that we were missing the items on our previous visit and was assured a repeat incident will not happen...once at home, opened the leftover bags and this time the truffle fries are missing...,normally , I would let it go, but a repeat shortcoming needs to be addressed regarding the procedure for leftovers to be taken home....each case the leftovers were a sizable portion and not spoonfuls....the portions at Capital Grille are amply provided hence the take home request....hopefully management can rectify the post dinner leftover system.

This was my second visit and my wife’s first. The entire meal was a great experience from start to finish. The French Onion Soup was the best I have ever eaten. The bread service and filet were very good as well and the service was definitely on par with our expectations. I highly recommend this for a special occasion or night out.

Everything was delicious! Jim, our waiter was a delight. We went early and brought my 5 year old niece and he was all about ensuring she was happy. It was a great experience and food was delicious! We sat upstairs so it was quiet and perfect since we had the little one. Downstairs was a different story by the bar. It was busy, had a lot of business professionals at the bars and table tops. Overall a fantastic experience.

The service was terrible. We were seated in a back room with a larger group, and not enough wait staff to cover. Filet was good, as was the mozzarella salad , but Brussels were over fried and fries were very average. Brought us a different vintage of wine than listed on the menu, and to complicate matters the computers went down. We have had good experiences, but given we spent 337.00 and had a miserable evening, we won't be back anytime soon.
