Our waiter Sharon was excellent and catered to our mixed table of 2 teens and 5 adults. She was very experienced and knowledgeable.

As usual, amazing experience! From start to finish the Capital Grille lived up to and exceeded expectations. We've been to just about all the other fine dining restaurants in the Tampa Bay area and Capital Grille continues to be our benchmark. Johnathan Rush was our waiter and was attentive, professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. Already looking forward to our next visit.

The service was first rate! The wait staff is very attentive but not overbearing. Our waiter actually made the visit very enjoyable; he was on point and fit the table's vibe. The food was excellent, although the asparagus wasn't great. The steaks and fish were perfectly prepared. Oysters were fresh, and the kale/almond salad was delicious. It's a pricey place to dine, but you do get the service so I wouldn't say it's out of control expensive. Give this place a go. It's a sure thing.

Lunch was amazing! The swordfish was fabulous and the lobster tail delicious. The waiter was great. My only issue was that I got lobster bisk bowl to go. I ate a little including a large piece of lobster in it and it was bad. I got a horrible stomach ache. Very disappointing

We go out to eat often, everything was Excellent, except we had a few Drain Flys Flying around our drink glasses from time to time & hope they get control of this soon before it becomes much worse because if they don’t we will Not Go Back. I mentioned this to our waiter, he also noticed them then told the Manager who never came to our table other than pour us a $68.00 glass of wine earlier in the evening. That was a little disappointing & we dine at Eddie V’s, a sister restaurant several times per month.

Food was awesome! Our waiter was not to great this time. The last few times we were there the waitress was awesome He spent more time talking to the couple at the next table about personal things. We had to keep flagging him down. But the restaurant in all was amazing as always. Next time we will request the waitress we had before.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here and our table was set with roses and heart confetti - a sweet surprise. Then, our server, Terry, offered complimentary champagne for our occasion as well as a special appetizer - also complimentary. Terry had wonderful recommendations for our tastes, and we ended up splitting the Field Green Salad, getting the Swordfish topped with Lump crabmeat with a mustard vinaigrette and the Porterhouse prepared medium rare, and sides of Creamed Spinach and Potatoes Au Gratin. We were both full and not going to get desert, but Terry had another surprise: the Pastry Chef had made us a delectable molten lava cake and vanilla bean ice cream with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate - complimentary. The service we received from the time we entered, time with Terry, delicious bites from the kitchen staff, and the sweet gesture from the Pastry Chef ALL made our anniversary very special - everyone went above and beyond and we absolutely enjoyed our time at the Capital Grille, we are truly grateful! We highly recommend them for special occasions and any occasion!

It was overall a great dinner I am not a fan of loud places especially if it’s for a group experience we had 9 people we were seated at a long table and we had to shout and still could not hear properly . We ended up switching seats to be able to talk to each other and our son had to go home because of he sound level ( he is post concussive and had been feeling better before we arrived but is worse after going there) . That’s not the restaurants fault it’s just not what we were looking for.

So service was absolutely fantastic, great staff, great atmosphere, however to be honest food wasn't really that good, we ordered multiple items from menu and just wasn't impressed. Especially for dropping hundreds of dollars just expected food quality to be over the top. Who knows maybe we caught them on a bad night. Again staff was fantastic.

Birthday dinner meal for 6.
The good: steak and lamb chops
Apps were delicious, calamari and tartar
Bad:both salmon entrees were fishy. For price paid should be much higher quality.

Upon leaving waiter rushes over to claim he forgot to charge me $50 corkage fee. I asked the manager to come over and explain that when we spend over $500 on a dinner, Most high-end restaurants will waive the corkage fee. He had zero interest in our explanation and was basically rude.

I will find another go to place in Tampa.

I had the strip. My son had the porterhouse both were delicious and cooked perfectly. The burrata appetizer was also top shelf. The meal was well spaced out, the server waited until you were finished with each course before bringing out the next.

Jonathan was a great server. The lighting was a bit brighter than normal this time, which didn’t set the mood as nicely for dinner. Overall, a good experience and the steaks were cooked to perfection.
