Customer Service? Non-existent. Food preloaded as ordered? No,overdone. Did management check in to verify that the kitchen delivered the meal as ordered, even though they were aware and put in the order? No! Did management verify the meal was over cooked? Yes. The meal was a disaster as a culinary and customer service experience. Capital Grill should be embarrassed.

It is our go to restaurant alone or with friends. Usually the service is impeccable. However, Saturday night our waiter was not up to par. He quoted us the price for a bottle of wine that was twice what it was. He also disappeared for rather long periods. We will make sure we do not get him again

we had an extraordinary evening. It was a 70th birthday celebration with family members. The pace of service was geared to our needs and the food was outstanding. The staff had a card signed by them on the table when we arrived and served a special dessert with a candle plus two others for everyone to share. In addition, champaign was served for a toast!! The card, dessert and champaign were a complete surprise. If you want extraordinary food and service, this is the place!

Food is high quality. The salad with seared tuna I had on my last visit was okay, but was not as good as a similar salad at Great American restaurants like Artie’s or Sweetwater. The ambiance is better for a business lunch.

Servers are attentive, but there seems to be a coordination problem. I have been there twice recently and on both occasions there were two servers who asked about beverages at the beginning of the meal and two different ones who asked at the end. Better to have too much service than too little, but the second ask for beverages was distracting in that we ordered beverages from the first server who asked.

I’m usually a five star rater for Capital Grille the service never disappoints.
The food this time was underwhelming. I got the scallops and the waiter told me it was a good choice and he was wrong.
The mushroom risotto was mushy and bland and the scallops were salty (and I’m a salt lover)
I guess I’ll stick to steak when I go as I’m never disappointed

As arguably one of the best restaurants in the area, we were disappointed when a specially requested dish served to us in the dining room but usually reserved for the bar, was so salty it was inedible. Service was exceptional and the issue handled with aplomb, although after the fourth manager arrived at our table asking how everything was, it became a little annoying. Issues aside, this is a wonderful restaurant and one I highly recommend.

Perfect birthday dinner. Requests accommodated seamlessly. Excellent food and outstanding service. Marcello is one of the best servers around. A bonus is the ambiance and ability to have a conversation in the main dining room. Friends have used the private dining room and have rave reviews for the special attention given to special occasions. Finally a great restaurant in McLean. The only downside is finding your way to the front door in the craziness of Tysons. It's worth the effort.

The wait staff takes excellent care of us. The food is always perfectly cooked. I would highly recommend the Capital Grille

This is our favorite restaurant. The Wagyu and Wine pairing is a must try. The burgers and truffle fries are absolutely phenomenal and not to be missed. The wine pairings are three excellent choices. Our waiter has served us many times and anticipated our entire order. We always feel like royalty when we have dined at the Capital Grille

The meal I ordered was not cooked to my requested preference. It was not tasteful to me and I struggled to eat just a portion of it. I am confident that this was just an isolated experience. Also, when the waiter filled up our water glasses again, he mixed them up. We weren't sure who's was who's. Therefore, we unable to have any more water for the rest of the meal.

We had the most amazing meal Saturday night! Our waiter recommended not ordering appetizers for our group of four - he suggested "tomahawk" rib eye steaks with lobster tails and crab-stuffed giant shrimp, and ordering sides, for all of us - it was a beautiful presentation with the big beef bone with the huge steaks attached and sliced and done perfectly, the melt-in-your mouth lobster and the delicious stuffed shrimp! With two sides it was more than enough and those giant bones went home to a little white poodle! Each couple shared a more than ample dessert - an absolutely grand meal and a totally wonderful, delicious and lively meal!

Michael is a phenomenal server! We always come in after a particularly horrible and stressful day at the office, and Michael always promises to make it "all ok", and boy does he do just that! We came in on Tuesday this week stressed up to our eye balls, and after 1.5 hours with Michael we were smiling ear to ear, beyond happy! We would also like to give a shout out to Michael the bar tender who makes such delicious drinks, and quickly (because that's how we need them) and Roberto who keeps our table spotless and is always smiling! I can't take a sip of water before my glass is refilled again. I have never been in the habit of requesting a busser before, but I am now! If we don't have Roberto bussing now, we ask for him special. We love him.
Can't wait for another horrible day at the office so we can come back again!
