Stalwart in DC, food, ambience and service never disappoints. Refined, yet never feels stale. Great steaks, cocktails, wines.
It was smooth and the food was good
Some of the best steak in the city. Service is unmatched. Tiffany Koch took really good care of us, she made us feel like we were special and the only table in the restaurant
Our waiter Akim and the manager Adam gave the best service possible. They made our experience so special and attended to our every need. We will be back for sure!
Professional staff. Great food. We had a very secluded booth by their small private dining room which was very much appreciated.
Some of the diners were loud and raunchy. We were sat in a dark corner.
Always a delightful experience in an elegant setting with terrific service and an ever impressive menu.
The restaurant was wonderful! The servers had placed heart sequins on the table for our anniversary!
Always elegant, the best of service and a refined menu/wine list!
Celebrated my birthday - beautiful dessert sent to the table compliments of Capital Grille - Gerard our waiter very knowledgeable about all aspects of meal and wine
The waiter was amazing , and gave me bread I desired. I also a took a picture that was well received on Instagram.
I had a great time! The food was amazing
Amazing service and food, would want to go again
Great experience with a very thoughtful server.
Service was fantastic. The food was very good and I like that they've added outdoor seating, which made social distancing easy, plus dining outdoors with a view of the capital was nice. The food was also very good, except that I do not like the shallot butter that they put on the steak -- I would order without next time.
We love Akim
Our server Noé was great!
You cannot go wrong at Capital Grill. Food, drinks, and service were incredible. Well done!!
Tony, the waiter, did a great job -- I always ask for him to serve my table.
Food & service was great. Very happy
It was all excellent. The only thing that could have made the burger spectacular would have been using garlic butter instead of regular butter.
One of my favorite steakhouses. I go there often. My favorite steak there is the porcini rubbed bone in ribeye. Always a most delicious choice. This time it was oily and you could not taste the balsamic. While they took the steak off of the bill. Fine gesture but you don’t walk in the Capitol grille for a deal. You go in to experience the flavors of a well cooked steak. First time i have not been completely satisfied. One out of a hundred is not bad. Still a go to for me.
Best steak house in the city. Amazing food and service.
Capital grill was amazing. The service was amazing, the food was delicious, and we enjoyed our time just being there.
We had an awesome dinner at the best restaurant in Washington, DC. Calamari was awesome as a starter for the table. Steaks and sides were cooked to perfection and flavorful. The Generous Pour for wine was great fun. It allowed us to try some really wonderful new wines, and was fun in terms of our conversation at the table. Thank you so much! We had a blast.
Overpriced and overrated
I truly loved our experience at the Capital Grille in Washington DC. Everything was impeccable. Our server Joey, was amazing!! 5 stars across the board for the service, the food and my fulfillment of my seating request. Superb ! I can’t wait for the next royal treatment.
We were visiting our college freshman son and wanted to treat him to a special dinner. We all enjoyed our meals, and this mom was thrilled to see her boy eat a good meal (and not have to cook it!).
Wonderful setting - really enjoyed the service
Great food and service, ask for Bill he's the best
Always a classic! It was great to be back and enjoy the old favorites: calamari, steak, and Sam’s mashed potatoes
The good was great, however, the most expensive meal for two people I’ve ever encountered.
The service was good but our waiter could’ve provided more insight into the menu and recommendations for our first time, as other waiters did around us. The food was good, nothing to complain about. They cocktails were a bit of a disappointment in terms of selection. We expected a more upscale environment but other people came in wearing hats, sneakers, shorts. The business casual dress code seems pretty lenient if enforced at all.
Seafood tower was excellent. So was the tenderloin and butter poached lobster tails. One of our favorite places to go. Can't wait to visit again!
It was AWESOME
The food was amazing. The waiter was very nice and attentive! I would def come back!
Fabulous experience as always at Capital Grille. The three-course Restaurant Week lunch was great - fresh, perfectly dressed steak salad cooked to perfection, outstanding clam chowder, and finally creme brulee accented with fresh fruit. Service well-timed and perfect. Atmosphere elegant. Capital Grille never disappoints!
Great customer service and amazing food!
