    This is a solid steakhouse option in downtown Austin. Everything was very good, but nothing was exquisite. Our table had the blue cheese wedge, the chowder, the truffle fries, the peppercorn/coffee crusted and cognac mustard sauced NY strip ("Bone-In Kona Crusted Dry Aged NY Strip with Shallot Butter") , and the Basalmic reduction rib eye ("Porcini Rubbed Bone-In Ribeye with 15-Year Aged Balsamic: $63) in our orders. The steaks were cooked exactly as ordered to a perfect rare plus (very red but also warm inside). All of it was quite fine. The fries could have had a better texture but were salted and truffled just right. The chowder was totally competent. The wedge was nice but to be truly great it could use some more punch from an even better version of blue cheese/buttermilk dressing. The steaks were good quality and the seasoning/sauce treatment made them interesting. But for me: I won't be back to the Capital Grill because at this price point, and for how good but not stellar it was, I would rather go to Eddie V's, or Perry's, or Jeffrey's, or..., and experience more of a culinary thrill for the cost.

    We love Capital Grille in Plano/Dallas!!!! This is the second time we were disappointed in Austin. We were celebrating my daughter’s graduation last night. Service was slow, calamari was room temperature and salad serving size was enough for maybe 5-6 bites and warm. One person ordered filet Oscar style. It came out plain. By the time they brought out the crab meat and sauce the steak was cold. Another person ordered filet medium plus and it came out medium rare. She sent it back and it was returned still medium rare. As expected the the 3rd time it was well done gray. The waitress was not the typical Capital Grille polished. More like someone who might work at a diner. The salmon was over cooked and dry.

    We had a really good time! I’ve been to many restaurant like this, but I love the service and especially the ambiance. My fiancé had the NY Strip and I had the Filet Mignon and they came out just right. The oysters tasted super fresh and the cocktail shrimp was yummy. Our server was super attentive and very outgoing. He gave us great recommendations. Will definitely be back again!

    I hadn't been to Capital Grille in some years and I was not disappointed this time. The service was delightful, as was the food. All of four of us had filet mignon, sliced with mushrooms and cippolini onions. All of us found the meat was done exactly as requested. I would definitely go back and would recommend Capital Grille to friends.

    My husband and I came here for lunch because I had a gift card due to extremely slow service the time before and the customer outreach team took the initiative to reach out and offer a gift card to make up for it, which I appreciated. Don was our server this time and he was attentive and polite. They are also quite accommodating on substitutions, even for their lunch combos, which often isn’t the case at other restaurants. Overall we had a nice lunch and I appreciate capital grill’s initiative in making it up to us for the last time. I love taking clients here and will continue to do so in the future.

    What an amazing birthday dinner. The food and drinks were fantastic and Gary, our server, was fabulous and spot on with everything. The picture and card that was given to us to commemorate the occasion was a very nice touch. This is a birthday that will be remembered forever. Thanks Capital Grille.

    My husband and I stopped in at the Capital Grille on our way back to San Antonio at 2pm, when a lot of local restaurants were closed. We were immediately greeted by Conner who promptly brought drinks and a breadbasket to the table. The lunch selections were great. My husband had the grilled tuna and I had the tenderloin sandwiches with truffle fries. My entree also came with an oversized salad that my husband and I both shared. Connor was attentive and friendly and surprised us with a comped desert to finish the meal. Fabulous late lunch and experience. Will definitely be going back
