The Capital Grille - Ft. Lauderdale
This has been my favorite special occasion place, but no more. Had a less than satisfactory experience. One of my guests became ill and a staff member made a very inappropriate comment along the lines of, “I hope he doesn’t have anything else to drink.” Next time I’ll go elsewhere.
Exemplary service with delicious food. What more can anyone ask for? From the moment I walked in I felt welcomed, and that continued throughout the meal. The attention to detail is extraordinary. The service is among the best I've seen. The food (steak) was delicious. My compliments to the culinary team for their excellence, and to the service staff who clearly have the best training program around. The valet was super simple and complimentary.
Amazing experience, will come back.
The Capital Grille never fails!
With a little heads-up, our table was decorated for my daughters' birthday; including, confetti and a card!
Our server, Ricardo Berlingo, was very attentive and made for a great night.
What can I say about the food other than it was perfect!
The lobster bisque was full of lobster chunks, the skillet shrimp appetizer was a hit, the sides were outstanding, and the steaks were absolutely perfectly cooked and seasoned.
Ricardo closed the night with a birthday treat for each of my daughters...and wow!
All in all, there should never be a doubt about having a meal at the Capital Grille!
We were disappointed with the wines on your wine special.
The service was disconnnected. Too many people, no one knew what the other was doing
Parking valets were not helpful.
Was not good compared to my first time there 4 months ago
We visited the Capital Grille on Father's Day and on July 13th. We were frequent diners at this location for many years, but it slowly has fallen down the list. On Father's Day, I ordered a filet - medium and it came out rare. I sent it back and it was still rare. My son ordered a filet MW and it was burnt. I gave him the ends of mine. I assumed this was because it was Father's Day and busy. I brought my inlaws for their 50th Anniversary as well as my son's birthday on July 13th. The service was ok, not very attentive. We had empty drinks for awhile. We ordered four filets Medium Well hoping they would come out slight pink and they were all overly well done. Being that my inlaws were with us, I didn't want to complain. This was their first time there and they specifically discussed with the waiter they wanted their steaks pink. They were charred on the outside as well. I had to request a sauce in order to eat my filet. Overall the experience has not been the best and kind of embarrassing. This was out favorite steakhouse. We live out west and this definitely was not worth the time. Not sure what is going on. Thank you.
Wonderful setting, service, and meal!
I went to the Capital Grille earlier for a birthday lunch with my sis. We had a great time! The atmosphere and ambiance was amazing! Definitely would recommend business or dressy casual wear so you don’t stand out too much. My sis and I ordered the dry aged sirloin frites and the lobster and crab cake sandwich. Our plates did not disappoint! The steak was cooked exactly as ordered (medium) and did not require any sauces. The sandwich was also good with tartar sauce (without it was just “alright). Our server, Bernard, was very attentive, accommodating and answered all of our questions. Would definitely recommend him in the future. Overall, had an excellent time there and would definitely go again.
Had a great time , love the food , service was great , generous pour was a lot of fun , always excellent filet , coconut desert was yummy
Best restaurant I’ve ever experienced
My birthday dinner was lovely, as included champagne and a special dessert as well as a fun table. All 4 of us were happy with our selections, including steak, salmon and raw oysters. Service was good, although at times snippy.
It was an excellent dining experience. Delicious food with great flavors and beautiful presentation. The Service was beyond Superior. Maria was knowledgeable, timely any extremely service orientated. She is a true asset.
Honestly, people write bad reviews all the time. Few are those who really take the time to express how well they were. CHARLES went above and beyond for us. He genuinely cared and we had a great conversation over dinner, I almost felt like inviting him to eat with us. Kudos to him and the whole staff for making our experience a unique one. I was also surprised at the attention to detail given the occasion. Thank you all!
Wow no word to describe how amazing time we had my wife and I celebrating our 11yrs anniversary. Thanks for Maria our waitress she made night incredible with her quality service and knowledge about the dinner , wine ect...... First time here and we love it !!!
Table service was really great. Gave us the larger table.
One of my favorite restaurants. Everything was wonderful!
Food is always amazing. Service has been better in the past. But it was a special night celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary
Wonderful meal with exceptional service.
Excellent service excellebt foid!
Always a great experience ! From the appetizers to the dessert the food was all first class. The wine list is fine and the service is a shining example of how to treat diners ! Thank you for CONSISTENTLY serving a beautiful meal !
Great! Our experience was great
We try and go at least once a month. Our server, Marcio is amazing. We ask for him every time. Attention to detail!!! He is the best! Our table was beautifully prepared - rose pedals and a rose. You couldn’t ask for more... The food was outstanding. Well done and thank you once again. We’ll be back‼️
It was fantastic!!
Impeccable service. Fantastic food. A perfect evening.
There is nothing bad to say about the Grille. Each time we visit, the experience is great!. The only thing that happened, was the drink I ordered was "overpoured" . I have had many margaritas, as that is my drink, , and I can tell you the drink left a great deal to be desired. Other than that magnifique!
We were there to celebrate our friends anniversary. The host greeted them wishing them Happy Anniversary, had heart confetti on our table with an Anniversary Card
They brought out Champagne flutes at the end with an dessert as well as taking a photo they printed out
Our waiter was great. Excellent service. Food delicious.
We got seated high traffic area near kitchen and prep and surrounded by waiters and constantly getting side swipe on my chair. Great good very good service but if I go back wouldn’t sit there. Great bartenders JOEL and josue.
Wonderful experience! Our waiter Raul was awesome!
Never disappoints in terms of food, ambiance, and great service! I have been a repeat customer multiple times and never hesitate to visit when I have important business engagements! Thanks.
The food was delicious and the service was excellent!
It was good. They do what they say on the tin
This restaurant never fails, and is an absolute FAMiLY favorite.
Lovely Father’s Day dinner. Service was ok, not stellar. However, holidays aren’t the best days to expect stellar service when the staff is exhausted .
Excellent experience mainly due to our server manners and thoughtfulness. Thank you!
From the service to the food, the experience was esquisite! Our waitress Maria was beyond expectations! We will definitely keep coming back. Thank you for making my 90 year old dad's Father's Day special.
Birthday celebration! I love the flower, card and confetti placed on my table! And the best was the complementary dessert and candle! Food and service is the finest!
I have dinner here many times a year. I have come to count on an amazing experience each time and CG never disappoints. Alina was a superstar this last time and is to be recognized by both of us who work in the Hospitality industry as well. The Maitre'd was very welcoming and accommodating when we were early. Good vibe and we walked out feeling well served and appreciated.
Unfortunately the table we were given was by the kitchen and the servers kept passing by very uncomfortable and unable to have a proper conversation and they kept hitting the back of my chair
Servicio genial, un lugar maravilloso para compartir
