It was raining and the traffic was awful, so we were thirty minutes late, but welcomed graciously and taken to a nice table. Party of five, legal office party, the valet kept the Mercedes van upfront as it couldn't be parked in a garage. Rob was our waiter. Was very patient with us. Not rushed at all. He gave the... More

I’ve been visiting this Capital Grille for almost 15 years, since well before I could actually afford it. The first time I went there cost almost as much as my rent at the time, but I always go back because over the course of what’s become probably over 100 visits, I’ve never had a bad experience.

We felt the restaurant was overrated. We had Thanksgiving lunch there. The ambiance was great and service very polite; however, it felt like more show than substance.

Stopped in for lunch. One of our party had the french onion soup - tasty. Another had the kale salad with sliced steak - delicious. I had the avocado, mango tomato salad with salmon - I thoroughly enjoyed it. Service was good. Pricey, but quality was there.

My wife and I decided to have dinner here during our romantic evening without our kids. Our food was good but our server Angel was terrific. I highly recommend asking for her next time you visit the Capital Grille, I know I will.
