Food was out of this world! It was worth every penny! A great spot for date night that we will be going to frequently from now on the steak was like butter and all the sides were full of flavor best dinner I’ve had in a long time!!

The person who managed our table was nothing short of amazing. She was personable and available without hovering. Easily one of the best Capital Grille experiences to date.

My husband had the filet. It was very good. I had the swordfish. It was terribly over seasoned. I was able to get down about 3 small bites but could not finish it. Capital Grill is usually very good for us. It will take some time for me to forget how awful that dish was. Swordfish cooked right is hard to mess up.

Great food and service for my birthday. Would’ve liked to not have been in the bar area but it was more quiet since they weren’t overly busy for a Monday evening.

The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. We had the calamari appetizer, which was served tossed with cherry peppers, and it was very good. I got the porcini crusted bone-in rib-eye, medium rare plus and it was cooked perfect and the taste was excellent. My wife ordered the bone-in rib-eye medium rare and hers came out over-cooked. The server was very apologetic and ordered another steak for her, which the chef brought out to the table and it was cooked much more to her liking. This was our anniversary dinner and the staff made it a nice special occassion with a long stem rose on the table, complementary chocolate lava cake and glass of champagne. We will definately be going back.

Clay at the bar and our server Ashley were amazing. Top notch customer service and good food. The filet was a bit too salty but there was no problem with them bringing me another without the salted butter on top.
They do customer service right every time

My wife’s steak was not cooked as requested. This is something you sometimes expect and live with at an average steakhouse. We sent it back but it was very inconvenient as we were with a group and most were done by the time the steak came back. There was no mention of compensation for the inconvenience. I think business is good right now and so restaurants don’t feel the need to do that. When you are paying nearly $300 for a meal for two you expect better.
