Noe Rodriguez was our waiter and could not have been more professional and nicer. One of our steaks was a little off on the temperature preparation and him and the manager were impeccable about the way they handle it made our experience even more pleasant. Will definitely return.

Our first time here and we had an amazing evening. The setting, service and food we’re phenomenal. I’m not sure I can ever eat a steak anywhere else as it could never compare. Our server, Bill, gave us exceptional service and it felt as if he were an old friend as he was so personable. We can’t wait for our next visit to DC so we can come back for dinner.

We were seated in an area where we could hear a disgruntled employee be told to do their job. My daughters glass was dirty. My steak was excellent.

I routinely order the lobster salad when I come for lunch. This is the first time it was disappointing. A modest amount of lobster hiding in way over dressed greens. Fortunately my guests were thrilled with there appetizers and entrees so I can’t be too unhappy

It was our first time at this location. Service was very good, nice wine selection and very good food.
My steak was a bit undercooked next to the bone, but the lobster tail and salads were great.
Great service at the bar as well.

They started our meal with heart confetti on the the table and a glass of complimentary champagne for our anniversary. Our meals were outstanding! Then to top it off we got a complimentary dessert as well. This is one restaurant that know how to treat their guests. We were blown away

I took a friend and colleague out for a belated birthday dinner. We were welcomed warmly by the valet parking guys. Then the folks at the hostess stand were quite friendly letting us know our table was ready. Server LC did a brilliant job. She acknowledged we were celebrating a birthday. She had great timing in terms of allowing us to chat, but checking in to see if we needed more wine or wanted to order the next course. Calamari was sensational as always. Salads were crisp, fresh and delicious. My friend had the tuna, which he loved. I went with the bone-in filet, which was superb. It was an awesome night! Thanks to Manager Jim, server LC, and all who made it a fantastic evening.

I love coming to Capital Grille. It’s one of my favs. Service is always on point. I must say the have the best steak sandwich. I didn’t get it this time. I got the crab and lobster burger. It was good but should have stuck with the steak. No worries I’ll be back!!!
