Fantastic business celebration lunch. Bad weather and traffic delayed some arrivals. Our server Peter was cordial and friendly as we waited for all to arrive. Great food and very reasonable for a five star lunch.

I took my leadership team out for the holidays and unfortunately I was disappointed in the experience. Service was ok. One of my 7 guests waited way too long for her dinner when everyone had theirs. It was nothing unusual. Noise level was very high as well. Overall a disappointing experience

The Capitol Grill was a lovely Restaurant with an elegant atmosphere and décor. Interestingly enough the restaurant is located in an upscale mall. The service was attentive and food was very good. We enjoyed our time at this location. The restaurant has an extensive wine list. The only draw back is the noise level. It was difficult to have conversation across our table of 7. Reservations are recommended. It is possible to get a seat at the bar or outside patio but to ensure a table-- a reservation is best.

We are here at least once a week. The food is consistently excellent, as is the service. I have been to most, if not all of the fine dining restaurants in Tampa, and can honestly say there are none that I would say are better. In fact, most fall behind in the area of service.

I’ve been 3-4x now to this location and its consistently just a great all around experience. Meats are correctly cooked, delicious seasoning, vegetables are great, and for me ~ a great gluten free menu. Service is not over bearing or forgetful, seating each time has been what I wanted, and ambiance is great for a date :) Overall, I enjoy it as a quality dining experience and look forward to coming back again soon!

Ours was a party of four for Thanksgiving dinner. Two chose strip steaks, two chose the turkey dinner. While the steaks were as good as always, the turkey meat was so incredibly salty, the meat was not edible. We mentioned this to the manager on duty, and while we did not ask to have the meals removed from the bill, the manager did pick up the cost for our 4 desserts and coffee.

We had our ThxGiving with family and the food and service was outstanding! As a group we ordered of the a la carte' menu and some of us got the ThxGiving meal. I had the porcini lamb old style with lobster mac, truffle fries and hoisin brussel sprouts. The steak specially prepared for the kids along with mashed potatoes was excellent too. Kudos!

Four of us dined there Sunday night. Three meals were excellent. My porterhouse was not. I was offered a replacement, but that would have me watching the others eat, then they would be watching me. The onion soup was excellent. The service was very good. My steak was removed from the bill, so I can't complain too loudly. I did expect an excellent steak; didn't happen. When the steak, a la carte, is $54, it should be excellent. If they can't deliver excellence, it should be scratched from the menu.

Outstanding! My wife and I have dined at Capital Grille many times, but this was our first time at the Tampa International Plaza location. As usual, the food and service was “top shelf”. Overall, however, the food quality and our server, Ashlee, were even better than expected.

Definitely a great choice!
