The Capital Grille never disappoints and I don’t mind paying the price for good service and quality food. My filet was cooked perfectly, the lobster Mac and cheese is one of my favorites and our table attendant, Tiffany, was amazing. I didn’t have to look for her or ask for her, she was always there. Thank you for a great night.

Wonderful, our bill was over $300.00 and worth every cent. The service, the room, the amazing food, is what fine dining is all about. Thank you Capital Grille...

The server was awful. The food was pretty good but took FOREVER to come out. And some of it was cold when we got it. So disappointing. And the server was uninformed and slow to take care of anything.

My wife and I have visited Capitol Grille in several cities but mostly in DC. We have always rated it very highly. This time our son and grandson accompanied us. Both the food and service were excellent. We will definitely return.

Food was great. Steaks are charred on the outside. If you don't like the slight burned taste you won't like it.

I am a frequent visitor to the Capital Grill. I like their locations - DC, Tyson’s, and Chevy Chase. I don’t recommend the DC location for holidays. They seemed overwhelmed in the reception area by the number of customers; our seating was late; and the hostess was not hospitable. However, once we were seated, the food and wait staff made it a positive experience.

Our server was Frances tonight. She was absolutely wonderful. It was like seeing an old friend since we have dined with her since she opened up the Las Vegas location. We loved her service, loved the food, and Adam the manager put that special touch on the evening for us with personalized attention! We have restaurants, and they absolutely know what they are doing here. We have an 8 yr. old, and she was completely at ease here. We will be back out next trip to DC.

Spent a week in DC with a teenage carnivore. The location and ambiance here is top notch. The food is excellent and we would likely rave we’re it not for personal preference for other steak restaurants in the area. Quite nice. Worth the dining experience.

Excellent food. Top notch service, bar none. Pricy, as you'd expect, but what you get for your money is a relaxed, unrushed, "stay as long as you like" atmosphere.

Fantastic! We came from Ohio to visit Washington and we were not disappointed by the cuisine served by you. I had lobster bisque and a steak, which was superbly prepared. The blackberry-bourbon sidecar was amazing. Overall, I would give our dining experience an outstanding rating and the service and waitstaff were excellent . I hope to dine at your restaurant again in the near future.

Overpriced. Service makes up for it. Kids steak was literally a bite. Meiomi $64 a bottle. Hard to swallow knowing retail price.
