Went out to celebrate with a birthday dinner. They didn’t even put the confetti on the table. The restaurant was packed.... the server was very nice however he alone. Don’t waste your time here, go to the one in Bethesda.

Had a wonderful dinner here. The atmosphere was beautifully intimate and everything was very professional. I really liked the added touch of being able to check our winter jackets at the front. The service was amazing. The drinks were well valued and full pours. The steak was cooked to perfection. I didn’t feel pressured into dessert which I felt was nice.

The value of Restaurant Week couldn’t be passed up, I ordered the Calamari, Lobster Mac n Cheese, and Truffle Fries from the regular menu as planned, but the deal of Restaurant Week got me to try the Dry Aged Strip instead of my go to choice. Though I still prefer a Ribeye I’m glad I tried something different and enjoyed soup and a dessert that came with the menu. Will definitely return.

From Dina the maître D’ to Pamelon the runner to Adam the GM to Hailey my amazing server; I was impressed from the minute I walked in. I visited different Capital Grille restaurants in the past and was here today for restaurant week; where I sampled the lunch menu.

My mixed salad was crisp, with a light vinaigrette and finely grated Parmesan; with small heirloom tomatoes. Hailey dusted my salad with just the right amount of freshly ground pepper. Wow.

I went for the bone in prime New York strip. It was a $10 up charge however having had varying cuts of strip steak; bone in flavor cannot be beat.

I had it prepared medium rare+ and it arrived in perfection. It was a large cut of steak, 14oz and was about 1 inch thick. I’d definitely go medium rare next time as because of the grilling excellence; the steak can quickly rest causing the meat to become more firm. Delicious nonetheless.

I also had Sams mashed potatoes which had a hint of horseradish. They were prepared well but I’d recommend just a bit more horseradish to bring out more flavor.

Overall I am beyond satisfied with my entire dining experience. I’d absolutely take my family and closest friends with me on a return visit. Thank you to your fantastic team ! Best.

Fantastic restaurant! The food was excellent and service by our waiter,Joey Terrones, could not have been bette and the birthday dessert for my husband was a thoughtful touch.
The only tiny critique Is that we had to wait for our table due to Covid restrictions even though we had a reservation, but it is what it is.
Will definitely return in the future.
