    First, our server Tony was amazing! Excellent service and he had recommendations ready when asked. The food was top notch, arrived all together and was piping hot! Great flavors! The steaks were cooked exactly to order and the house Cabernet was a great match with the fillet. Thanks Capital Grill for a great evening with friends!

    I went during the summer and the food was outstanding. I returned to celebrate Mother’s Day and it was mediocre. I had lamb chops and my husband had steak. Both were overcooked. The waiter was very kind but there were very extensive delays between orders and drinks. A few tables were empty so it wasn’t unusually busy. The waiter recommended key lime pie for dessert but then returned to share that they served the last piece. At $500 for four people, this was a disappointing experience.

    The food was good but over priced. Service was very good but had empty water glasses frequently. The tables are too close with chairs bumping and servers bumping. Enjoyed because of company but will not return to this Capital Grille. Sent a message indicating it was a Birthday event but it was never recognized. Disappointing.

    Happy to be back at the Capital Grille after a couple of years. We usually request Bill Cubbins as our server if he's available but he happened to be off on the night we visited. We had the pleasure of meeting his friend and coworker Tony Parvin, who was equally as entertaining and attentive as Bill has always been. Tony offered on-point dinner and drink suggestions and we enjoyed talking with him about the challenges of the past months. He is engaging and has a great dry sense of humor. It would be an honor to be seated at one of his tables in the future. Our meal itself was, as always, phenomenal. We started our meal with french onion soup and salad. My husband enjoyed one of the specials, freshwater lobster tail, and I had the halibut special. Our side to share was the au gratin potatoes. Not exactly sure how they do it, but they are hands down THE best. We shared our favorite creme brulee for dessert. Drinks included a couple of Manhattans and Blackberry Bourbon Sidecars. Hands down our favorite restaurant in DC and we cannot wait to return to hear more stories from Tony about Bill. All good, Bill! All good.

Management and waitstaff were amazing. Thank you for an experience worthy of my time and dollars. Definitely recommend, 10/10.

    Capital grill is a nice staple when traveling to major cities. This experience was ok… not the best, not the worst. Steak a little over done, side dishes of potatoes and tomato salad ok. Server helpful but not super friendly. Wish ingredients and serving style of dishes was clearer for those with food sensitivities. One member of our group had great difficulty in ordering—food descriptions did not match with details in how the dish was presented.

    My family and I did an impromptu trip to Washington DC. After hours at the Smithsonian we decided to have a late lunch, early dinner. Everything was fantastic. The filets were amazing and the asparagus was cooked to perfection.
