I had my hopes up high, but was disappointed in the food. My wife and I had lunch there, and we both had overcooked food. Her medium burger was well done, and my chicken tough. Charging those prices you should be able to cook a burger right.

Capital Grille is an excellent restaurant and the service top-notch. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. Now this was a special occasion for us, so we were aware of the cost. The Capital Grille is very expensive. Dinner for my husband, myself and my 2 sons cost us nearly $400, however each year we see a Christmas show in downtown... More

Exceptional selection and extremely large portions. The gyro platter and open faced gyro are my favorites. They have a fantastic Greek salad, too. The restaurant is a bit noisy. I have had great service every time I have been there. Finally-check out the cake display- extreme eye candy!

Excellent staff and steaks. Took us with no reservations. Professional waiters with assistants and white tablecloths. Steaks cooked exactly as ordered. Tables could have been slightly larger to accommodate all items.

Perfect place for a birthday dinner. The steaks are outstanding! We loved the gorgonzola and truffle crusted filet (on the menu it was a NY Strip but you can ask to have any steak prepared this way.) Must-try appetizers are the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella and the tuna tartare. Our server Kenny G was excellent; ask for him!

Dined with a colleague and client this week and not disappointed. We went a bit early to enjoy a glass of wine while we waited for our client to arrive. The pinot noir selections by the glass were great. Enjoyed! For dinner I had a petit filet as I was not famished. Had asparagus side and truffle fries. Wanted a... More

My husband took me to The Capital Grille on Valentine's day. It was very nice atmosphere. They were busy due to it was valentine's day so I believe that why the service was a bit too slow but forgivable as everything came out correctly.
