Went for restaurant week and everything was under par for CG. Food overcooked and under seasoned. Best part of the meal was the free bread. Have always enjoyed CG but the missed the mark this time. The RW deal was too good to be true.

We went for Restaurant Week and we had a wonderful time. Our reservation was for 9:30pm but we got there early around 9:10 pm. We were surprised that they were able to accommodate us with 5mins when we arrived considered they were booked all evening. Overall, the steak was good but not the best I ever had but the wait staff was excellent! Great place for date night/birthday/anniversary celebration. If you are looking for a good deal then go for during DC Restaurant Week as our meal was $35 compared to $54 on their menu.

Tony is the best Waiter we have seen in the industry. Very professional, friendly and funny. He made our experience very pleasant. I will make sure to ask for his table when we return. Thank you Tony

We went for Restaurant Week, a wonderful value for what you get. Our waiter Daniel Shanko was wonderful, friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. Our only issue was the noise and lightning. It was so dark that we couldn't read the menu without the light from the phone and it was extremely noisy and difficult to have a conversation.

We were a group of 5 celebrating my husband's birthday. While the food was outstanding, the service left a bit to be desired. First of all, our waiter made fun of the Restaurant Week menu, which is actually really good. I know that many waiters hate RW because they feel that guests don't tip appropriately, but that is not really the way I want to start my meal. The funny thing is, we all ended ordering the RW menu with a few enhancements, which made it more than the $35 per person, but still an excellent value. We also ordered 2 bottles of wine, which made for a rather large bill. So our waiter got a good tip, regardless of the RW menu.
Another detail that bothered both myself and my mother in law: our entree plates were literally thrown in front of us. I suspect that if a chef saw the waiters doing that, they would be livid as it can damage the presentation.

We would like to thank the capital grill for their outstanding hospitality even though we were there for the restaurant week but everything was outstanding from the hostess to servers and busboys. The food was cooked perfectly and the dessert was amazing. We will back for for sure. Thank you again.

Service was great and the food was incredible. I was there for Metropolitan Restaurant week with a friend and had their 8oz filet mignon. This steak was so tender and great. I would recommend all to come if they are looking for a place to enjoy steak. I will be coming back again soon.

Pretty solid steakhouse. I would return and plan to. First experience was during restaurant week. I would like to try some other side dishes and entrees. Also, maybe visit for a happy hour at some point.

Food was really good but the time in between courses was really long. It took over an hour and a half for lunch.

We have been coming here for many years and everything is always amazing. The food and the service are spectacular. This time, we brought our infant daughter for the first time and they were very kind and accommodating. I highly recommend The Capital Grille to anyone I meet!

Snuck in for lunch on a chilly afternoon with my daughter. We were seated promptly at a really nice table. Francisco took great care of us. The French onion soup was spot on and the Signature Cheeseburger was to die for. PS: order extra bacon! 😜

The Capital Grille is consistently excellent city to city. Best chain steak house in my view. Not inexpensive, but you can count on excellent quality. Also, although the wine list is extensive, and expensive, there are some quality wines available that won’t break the bank. A go to restaurant when traveling and steak is your choice for dinner.
