The Capital Grille - Washington DC Ratings and Reviews
This was my second time going to The Capital Grille and the food and service did not disappointment. I made a last minute reservation for a party of 7, 15 minutes before we arrived at the restaurant. Due to heavy DC traffic we were running behind, but the staff was understanding and very accommodating to our party. Our waiter was very attentive and top of our requests and there was not one compliant on anyone's meals.
Cena de fin de año, con mesa reservada para cena con niños ( 12,12,10 años ), tuvimos que esperar 45 min para que nos acomodaran en la mesa. Los niños casi dormidos, yo con malas caras y mi mujer asombrada.... La verdad, había muchísima gente y es un día complicado.
Fue acomodarnos en la mesa 53 y ocuparse de nosotros el Sr. Jared J. cuando todo cambió.
Servicio amabilísimo, rapidez en atención a los niños, y una comida extraordinaria.
Carne perfectamente cocinada, buena selección de vinos razonables de precio para Washington DC, una gran y agradable experiencia.
Los niños despertaron, contamos experiencias de otros viajes, disfrutaron muchísimo con la comida ( difícil con niños ) y quedara como un bonito recuerdo.
We visit DC once at year, at the holidays, and always make sure we visit the Capital Grille for one of our evenings. We requested Bill Cubbins as our server again - just love the guy! He remembers us from year to year, despite us only being there each December. He always provides us great service, great conversation, and makes excellent dinner suggestions. The overall atmosphere of the restaurant is awesome - we feel so comfortable there.
Also would like to shout out to the female bartender who was working the night we had our reservation. Very pleasant, make great drinks, and gave an overall great vibe to the bar. (We sat at the bar for a few minutes until our table was ready).
We will be back - love, love, love this place!
It's been a while since we visited the Capitol Grill.... We ordered our meal as we were headed to a show afterwards. The waiter was quick and cordial, taking our meal orders. Then the waiter stood by the next table chatting it up with them (and wasn't quite!) At least 5 minutes, just standing there.
The food arrived and was delicious however the sides (which are billed as Family Style' were as we remembered it LARGE portions). We ordered the Asparagus and Mashed Potatoes. The size of these were quite a bit smaller then we remembered and naturally we shared, but was barely enough to share.. The meal was as expected in a place like this; quite costly but you know that going in. The Asparagus spears were quite small (you usually expect prime vegetables at a high end steakhouse especially at these costs).
Nice place but I really don't think we got the value as expected and will try the Palm or Morton's going forward...
This was a lunch to celebrate the holidays and we were greeted and taken care of the entire time we were there. I ordered the lobster salad and it was delicious - perfect combination of flavors. I do wish they included more citrus in the salad but otherwise great meal that filled me up by the time I finished. I would definitely go for lunch here again.
Absolutely one of the best in DC. The Capital Grille hits it on all cylinders. The food, the ambiance and especially the service are exemplary. We were celebrating a birthday and they did everything they could to make sure it was noted, including a wonderful desert plate, festively decorated, along with some colorful confetti on the table. The entire staff is amazing, from the valet, to the bartender, to the servers and managers. I will continue to go as often as possible. Kudos for a job well done.
Our party of 6 had a wonderful meal at the Capital Grill. Our waiter Jared was amazing. He made great recommendations, was engaging and provided exceptional service, thanks Jared! I can't wait until my next trip to the Capital Grill, DC.
