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 !

The shrimp cocktail and brussels sprouts were my fav. I had a bone-in ribeye and it was pretty good. Not my favorite of all the steakhouses I've been too, but it was solid.

We had the best time. The management, hostesses and serving team really rolled out the red carpet for our friend visiting from Kansas City. We wanted him to have the full The Capital Grille in Washington DC experience, and it was awesome.

Vina at the hostess stand gave us a very warm welcome. General Manager Adam stopped by to greet us. Server Tiffany and her team did a phenomenal job of pacing the meal. They brought us food and drink at the right times, and allowed us to speak with our friend in between.

Calamari was fantastic as always. Salads were fresh, crisp and delicious. Steaks were phenomenal.

We had the best time! Thanks to all who made it such a special evening.

I can’t brag enough on this restaurant. We love The Capital Grille and have eaten at several across the US. The service here was simply outstanding! From the beautiful girls at the front desk to Colton at the bar and to our incredible server- LC-thank you!

If you are looking for exceptional food AND service, visit them in DC.

Thank you for a great night!

I called the night before, as I had not been to this location, and was told attire for lunch was business casual. I walked in behind 3 men in shorts and a casual atmosphere. I was also told there was valet service like our local Capitol Grille only to find DC location does not valet at lunch. I was disappointed that the people answering the phone were so ill informed. The staff at the local self park parking garage were also not helpful. I thought this would be a quick easy lunch in DC. Having to call them again, being put on immediate hold, finding parking, locating our car in the confusing underground lot, validating and waiting for a credit on our card was way too much of a production. I will save time and aggravation next time and skip the CG.

Within waling distance from the Capitol building, dark wood paneled rooms with comfortable seating. Food was excellent and the waiter was not your usual bland worker rather than a professional who took care of the entire experience. Worth the price. Warning: I will return!
