Stalwart in DC, food, ambience and service never disappoints. Refined, yet never feels stale. Great steaks, cocktails, wines.

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.

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.

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.

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!).

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.

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!
