“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014 via mobile

We came to Pittsburgh for a much needed weekend getaway.the meal we had was very good but we have had other wonderful dinners in Pittsburgh for alot less money.we left the restaurant at 8:30pm and the valet suggested that we ask the hostess in thr restaurant to call a cab for us since it may be a little bit before we could catch one in front of the restaurant.when I asked the older hostess to please call a cab she suggested that we walk down a block and there would be a bunch of them sitting there.we had to walk three blocks before we found a cab.we will not be returning to the capital grille ,we feel that we should have been treated with a little more respect, we spent 200.00 with tip.if you want a great pizza dont miss pizza sola on carson on the south side.

“Steaks melt in your mouth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

Prompt, friendly, personal service. Knowledgable staff. Great wine list. And, filet and lobster that melted in my mouth! Restaurant is well-staffed - very busy, but dining is not rushed. Lovely atmosphere, elegant yet relaxed.

“Great steaks but ala carte pricing will add up”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014

Good food but the place is a bit frantic and noisey. Expect to get jostled around but once you get past that the steaks are good. Once you add in the extras for everything such as veg, salad, wine, starter you will easily get up to $100+ per head. The drinks in the bar are also quite high but it is a name brand chain and they have the crowds to justify the prices.

“Disappointed!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014 via mobile

My Dad took my sister and me to Capital Grille for our birthdays. The meals we ordered were outrageously expensive; our steaks were so tough and full of gristle. I had never been to the restaurant and was looking forward to my meal. However, I will not return due to prices and less than acceptable food.

“Great food and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

We try to visit The Capital Grille at least once a month. The food is always consistently AMAZING!!! We have NEVER had a bad meal here. The service is out of this world - each server we've had has been friendly and attentive. Definitely worth the price!
