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.

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.

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.

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!

You couldn’t ask for more... The food was outstanding. Well done and thank you once again. We’ll be back‼️

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!

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.
