Was told there were no tables available, but then went on Open Table and saw multiple reservation times were available. Did the hostess stand not know the actual availability or were they misinformed by management? Never had that happen before.

Sliced Steak with mushrooms was great. The scallops were expensive for only 4 pieces. The couscous was fair and the lemon flavor was a bit overwhelming.
I prefer Eddie V's

Whenever we are in Tampa, we always dine at the Capital Grille. Although I have been to other Capital Grilles and they are excellent, I find that Tampa is the best! The food, the service and the atmosphere are first class. It is well worth the price.

Went to Capital Grille to celebrate my husband's Birthday Belated. It was on 12.30.17 and because I was out of town, this was my chance to make it up to him. Capital Grille did not let me down. We were seated at a table right next to the Bar area. Really was not bad but there was football on the TV and it got a little loud a few times but nothing really bad. Dana was our server and she was perfect!! She never rushed us and let us take our time. From Appetizer to discussing a wine choice to steak choice, she was there to take us through and help us make the best selections for our dinner. So enjoy and love the amazing way Capital Grille makes you feel when you dine with them. More Upscale to me than some other steakhouses in town. Love the overall experience here. Thank you Capital Grille.

Food and service are always very good. Had an issue with their "policy" of only serving burgers in the bar area, but eventually the manager allowed the kids to have them.

Overall experience was great. The restaurant was busy the night we were there. Our waiter was very good but the wait between servings was extraordinarily long. It is the only complaint I have because the food was amazing and ambiance wonderful.

We had an early reservation, at 5:30pm. Half of the restaurant was empty. As we were being walked to a table, I asked if we could have a booth. hostess asks if we had reserved a booth. We had reservations, but did not see an option to request a booth. So she said no. Booths remained empty the entire time we dined.

Some would call the service excellent, I thought a bit intrusive. Most sentences were interrupted by questions from the waiter.

The food was tasty, but ridiculously expensive. We ordered soup of the day, lobster bisque, $28 for 2 cups (not bowls). I also had a side salad and one glass of wine. Hubby had a steak and veggies, iced tea. No dessert. Dinner for 2 -$149. That was a one-time place for us.

3rd year celebrating birthday at Capital Grille. very special. excellent food. filet and porterhouse cooked to perfection. tried the scallop potato side - really really good. letting them know you have a special occasion makes it even better with champagne, appetizer and dessert - and servers that make it a great evening.

My wife and I had dinner tonight and we were very disappointed in the service. The service was not up to the kind of standard we expect. The food took a long time to come out and the staff was clearly disorganized. We ordered some mayo and ketchup for our truffle fries. The order was served to the table adjacent to us and when we complained that our condiments were not served the waitress simply transferred the condiments from the adjacent table to our table. Unsanitary! Big no-no in the restaurant business. Shocking and disappointing. Will not go back for a while.

Top notch evening for my daughter’s birthday. Staff was prepared to provide a special evening and added table decorations. Our party arrived in two groups. The first was given the choice to be seated or to wait. How gracious. Our server, Cat, was cordial and attentive all evening. There are many fine steak and seafood oriented restaurant. The Capital Grille’s commitment to high end service puts it in league with the best.

We enjoyed oysters and soups, steak, tuna, lobster and veal. Only the veal disappointed. I mention the veal because disappointment is atypical at The Capital Grille and unusual, indeed.

As always, our service team instinctively sensed our pace, appeared when needed, and disappeared when we were well taken care of and lost among ourselves.

The Capital Grille remains my go to restaurant for high end dining in Hillsborough County.

My girlfriend was celebrating her 75th birthday. The dining experience made this the best birthday celebration she ever had. The wait staff and management made her feel really special. I have had numerous celebrations at other Capital Grilles. This event was as good as I have ever attended.
