The Capital Grille - Washington DC
Book your next event with us
The hostess warmly recognized that we were celebrating my wife's birthday and we were seated within 10 minutes of reservation time. The table had birthday decorations, the food was wonderfully delicious, drinks were great. My wife received a fabulous desert for her birthday and we had a great experience. Looking forward to our next visit!
Wonderful dining experience. Attentive staff and amazing food. Would come here again.
The food was awesome and we had a great and enjoyable experience from beginning to end. Our server was Manuel who made us feel like we were the most important people in the restaurant.
Awesome dinner!! the waiter was very attentive and also had an excellent sense of humor. He gave great recommendations too.
The prompt attention at the front desk allowed us to be seated early. The service was extremely fast, friendly and provided great recommendations as to the best dishes of the day. The food was perfectly prepared and was delicious.
My husband and I love Capital Grille. It is always a great experience (food and service). He only orders the filet mignon (medium) with mashed potatoes and every time it is cooked perfectly. I have had steak, fish and seafood and each time cooked beautifully. We have family in town this week and took them here last night. One of our family members is vegetarian and they don’t list a vegetarian entree but I knew their sides were all great and have a large salad selection so I wasn’t worried. We asked our waiter about an entree options and he provided several great options (including a pasta).
She selected a grilled veggie plate and I have to say that was the prettiest veggie plate I have ever seen. Then the waiter recommended a balsamic reduction sauce to go with it. She loved her entree!
Overall, you just can’t go wrong at Capital Grille. Yes, it is pricey. But not anymore than the other large steakhouses and you are never disappointed.
We went for the Generous Pour event. The event itself was great. They had an amazing selection of wines curated and was a great price. We also had the calamari appetizer which was probably one of the best calamari dishes i have ever had. None of the pieces were overcooked or chewy. My only complaint was that my strip steak was very over cooked. For a steak that thick to be overcooked seems like it would have been hard to do. I ordered it medium and it had no pink when i cut into the center and was very dry.
We were seated at a table that was practically inside of the kitchen. Couldn’t hear the music or have a discussion over the load kitchen noises and cook conversation.
Elliot was excellent
Celebrating my anniversary the food was excellent and the service was outstanding. I had made prior reservations and was very pleased to be seated immediately.the table had hearts on it. I was also presented with a dessert plate after dinner that said happy anniversary in chocolate. Great time
Great meal and great service! We brought our two kids and they were treated very well. It's not cheap but the food was outstanding!
Again great food and good service!
Amazing steak as alaways!!!
Bill the waiter ensured our experience was enjoyable
Our server BILL was A Plus as was the Coconut Cream Pie!!!!
We celebrate our 25th anniversary at Capital Grille and it did not disappoint! From the moment we walked in, we were treated like royalty. The hostess greeted us warmly and got us seated immediately even though our reservation was a bit later. Our server, Pam, was incredible and made sure we knew all about the specials, menu items, cocktails, etc. The food was prepared to perfection and we were treated to a special anniversary dessert. Needless to say, we thoroughly enjoyed our experience and will definitely be back!
My wife and I were visiting Washington for our 32nd anniversary and reserved a table at The Capital Grille. I used Open Table for the reservation and indicated that it was our anniversary. We were greeted with a "Happy Anniversary" when wee arrived and the table was tastefully decorated for us. A special champagne toast and desert were also included. I had a filet while my wife had scallops. Since The Capital Grille is noted for its steaks I wasn't disappointed. On the other hand, my wife was a little disappointed with the scallops. However all in all it was a very good experience.
We have long enjoyed dining at Capital Grille but this is our first time at this location. (Baltimore, Miami and Indianapolis Capital Grille locations are outstanding. Tysons Capital Grille is really not up to snuff.) I was pleased to discover that this was an outstanding experience and value. The service was excellent---really special. The food was fantastic. I had asked for a nice table for a birthday celebration and didn't much like my location close to the wines and kitchen. Nonetheless, the restaurant, the staff and the meal all were excellent and we will definitely return.
It was my going away dinner with my work wife
The food was not worth the price. The steak was good but the sides were terrible. The lobster was very oily and tasted like it was from a can. The bacon in the cream corn, which turned out to be soupy whole kernel corn was way over cooked. Overall, our almost $200 bill was surely not what we paid for.
First visit to Capital Grille, loved the restaurant and service. Food was average. Had a great salad & the skillet shrimp starter which I'm sure is supposed to be served hot and it was just lukewarm like it was sitting in the back too long. I said nothing to the server
The best steak we’ve ever had! Well worth it. Joey was a fantastic waiter.
Good times. Good steak in an upscale setting in a historic location.
We had waiter recommended tuna and house special filter was excellent.
Waiter had been there since it opened. Don’t mind paying $$$$ when get that kind of service and fare.
Lunch was delicious. We both had the Cobb Salad with sliced tenderloin. Friendly service, blissfully air conditioned with comfortable seating. Uncrowded....Washington natives have moved on I suppose so mostly tourists but so what
Manuel was an amazing server and deserves the world !!
Excellent food paired with excellent service!
Always a great place to go. Never disappointed. We would all like things a little less expensive, but it is what it is.
We were celebrating our 32nd anniversary ~ they seated us at a nice quiet table, glittered up our table for the celebration, and also surprised us with a special anniversary dessert. Our server, Joey, was fabulous; very personable and knowledgeable of the food and the extensive wine list. The food and drinks were great! A memorable experience, and will come back !
Wonderful experience. Great waiter.
Tiffany was wonderful, service was the greatest!
It was a little loud and it was a tad overpriced. Service was good however.
Our server was friendly and helpful. Delicious food!
We had a wonderful dinner at the Capital Grille. The filet was the star of the night along with the crab cakes.
The food was great. Brussel sprouts and calamari amazing. All food was excellent.
Taking 2 grandsons to eat at the Capital Grille for the first time visiting Washington, DC
Nice! Very nice. We thoroughly enjoyed.
We had a 3 person meeting over friendship and business, so a quiet table in the back was requested and honored. Food and service were excellent as usual as well as ambience. One of my favorite places to meet in DC.
Excellent meal as always. Food and atmosphere were wonderful. Out server, Joey, was fabulous. Very helpful and extremely friendly.
