Not the usually level of service. Food quality was a bit off. Lettuce for my Caesar Salad was a bit brown and my tuna was fatty.
My business guest commented on the level of service being off as well which was an embarrassment as I chose the location.

Very disappointed. Ordered a bone in filet for $61 and have had better steaks at Texas Roadhouse. Bartender did not know how to make a French martini. The only thing Goode were the side dishes.

We made a late afternoon reservation for my birthday with my children. We were purposeful with our reservation as we wanted them to enjoy the experience and practice their dinning out manners without being tired at a 7pm dinning time. We were disappointed with being seated in the bar area around bowl game patrons with incredibly foul language. I asked the hostess twice to speak to them or to move us, my children do not need to hear the F-word over and over while trying to dine. Our request was not honored despite there being an almost open dinning room.

We would frequent this capital grill every other month, for date night. I’m incredibly disappointed in how we were treated on this visit.

Absolutely perfect! The appetizers were generous and delicious, the entrées were cooked perfectly and the sides were great for a large group. I highly recommend the crème brûlée for dessert. Great experience. Wonderful server as well. Knowledgeable and friendly.

Not sure what is happening here. CG was always a guaranteed 5 star. But now I have had 3 consecutive bad experiences. Consistently needing to correct an order, resulting in being served dinner after the rest of the table is almost finished. This time, the food runner took to hostility and arguing about the incorrect order instead of getting the server or manager. When did Capital Grille turn into Chili’s? It’s my go to restaurant to take clients and it’s our family favorite but I’m afraid those days are over. I don’t have the patience for the degradation in service especially now when it’s met with belligerence instead of accommodation.

To be fair, the manager recognized this issue as well as the past 3 experiences and comped the entire bill. Good on him for restoring customer service to the situation but I still left without eating dinner (my choice rather then wait while they go make a new one- I just wanted to leave after dealing with the attitude of the food runners). The original server was very sweet and attentive. No fault of hers either. The kitchen staff seems to be burying this place.

2nd time in less then 2 weeks and the service has been way off from how it used to be. Long waits for our waiter as they seem to go awol. Otherwise everything is good. Probably won’t go back for a while as we are used to be served in a timely manner at other restaurants.

While it was a busy lunch day with many large holiday lunch parties, service and meal quality was impeccable. The noise level was still what you would expect for a day bustling with lunch holiday party's. We will definitely be back.

The responsiveness of our waiter (Brian) soured our overall experience. The wait time and poor communication was unacceptable for the price paid for a Capitol Grill experience.
On numerous occasions we had to flag down other employees for service we had requested. Brian made a big mistake by blaming the slow service on understaffing. Not our problem.
Our assumption was that Brian wasn't trained properly- however, regardless of the reasons, we felt the experience was underwhelming to say the least.
Thanks-
Mike Rosso

Terrible service for our Sunday night dinner. Sat outside due to Covid-19 concerns. Part of a mall so noisy plus airplanes departing nearby TPA. Our server was responsible for too many tables in a restaurant that is supposed to be a high end dining experience. The only thing high end was the pricing. Empty plates sat in front of us for at least 15 minutes before someone showed up to remove them. All in all a unpleasant costly evening.

Capital Grille is a premium restaurant - premium price and service. With that said, I had one of the best steaks I have ever had. The Porcini Rubbed Bone-In Ribeye with 15-Year Aged Balsamic was delicious and perfectly grilled. Truly a meal to remember. I'll be back!
