    We actually like this restaurant chain. The food is very consistent all over and this location is no different. We have visited this one many times as it us close to our home. The service is friendly and efficient and the steaks are great. Oh a very diverse and expansive wine list. Overall a great experience.

    I am disappointed that the gal at the front desk had inappropriate dress and at one point walking through the resturant sipping some kind of drink. I also wish there was a dress code no St. Hers and sandals.

    Service was excellent. Food was well-prepared and delicious. The size of the cocktails has shrunk, but not the price. My husband’s martini glass looked like a dessert glass.

    Always a great experience when we travel and can dine at CG! Minneapolis did not disappoint. Michael was our waiter in the Bar where we were seated and he was on top of his game!! Provided us with great service while also mixing in great conversation! His addition of the Brussel Sprouts w/ our meal was the perfect compliment!! Looking forward to our next visit to CG…can’t happen soon enough!!

    Not the Capital Grille I remember or expected. Steaks were good, but not incredible. We were never presented with a wine menu. We finally had to ask for it in between salads and entrees. You should never have to ask for a wine menu in a place like this...it's a given. Au Graten potatoes were very, very bland and too milky. Menu seems very paired down, I'd guest pist-covid issues and lack of people in downtown Minneapolis. I see the Capital Grille as an iconic mainstay for high quality food and service, but it fell extremely short.

    My friend and I had dinner and drinks there before going to Moulin Rouge. The dinner was such a fabulous start to the evening - it was absolutely delicious. My friend had the steak and lobster and I had the sea bass. We loved our meals and also the shared lobster mac n cheese. Our mojitos were a little too strong, but many people like that anyway.

    This was our first time back after the pandemic. We usually try to dine in the area either before or after our matinee shows at the Orpheum. Haven’t made it in because they now don’t open until 5PM. We were very excited to come back because it was always such a relaxing and enjoyable experience with excellent food. I confirmed my reservation through text the day before, then I received a voicemail during intermission of the show asking me to call back and confirm our reservation again. So I had to find a quiet area in the Orpheum to call and confirm my reservation again. We were seated and our server was sufficient. Seemed kind of annoyed that I couldn’t figure out the iPad wine list. He made the standard waiter check-ins and was okay. Asked for our salad dressing on the side which didn’t happen. But we just ate it anyways. Main courses were excellent as we remembered. The bus boys were great. At the end of the meal, we were just chatting and were asked if we could move to the bar to continue our conversation. I get it that they were just trying to accommodate the next reservation. The whole experience just seemed rushed where we felt like they were trying to maximize the efficiency of the throughput similar to an airline packing a plane full. It was just a let down from the pre pandemic days. I don’t know if the finances of the restaurant are tighter so they have to increase the throughput but the experience has declined post pandemic.

    I have been a customer of Capital Grill for more than 30 years. Overall this was the worst experience I've had in the hundreds of times I have dined at the Capital Grille. As usual the food was excellent and our server was fabulous, beyond attentive. But the noise level allowed by other diners was terrible. We were surrounded by people playing games on phones and playing loud movies. The ambience was awful. It was totally destroyed. The capital Grille has traditionally been a high quality, high ambience restaurant. The ambience has been destroyed and, as judged by my experience yesterday, it is hardly any better than McDonald's. The restaurant must stop customers playing speaking on phones and playing loud videos or music. If this is the new Capital Grille, then I will no longer be a customer.
