    Our food was excellent. The service was great, there was always someone available but they were not over attentive. I ordered the seared tuna and it was so delicious. We had an array FoF different entrees inducing lamb, chicken, and steak. Every one was extremely satisfied with how delicious the food turned out.

    Amazing experience from the moment we walked in. The Capital Grille is such an elegant restaurant. We had the pleasure of being served by Chris this evening. I cannot say enough wonderful things about him. He was so friendly, knowledgeable, and truly so wonderful to talk with, also he was so attentive to our every need. We were also greeted at the table by Todd Blumencranz who was one of the Managers on the floor. He made sure our dining experience was a great one and really made us feel so welcome. My partner and I both had the 10 oz Filet Mignon. It was cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth. We also enjoyed a side of Au Gratin Potatoes and mushrooms which were equally delicious and complimented the Filet’s beautifully. We ended our incredible experience with two delicious Espresso Martinis and their Coconut Cream Pie and Cheesecake for dessert. We cannot wait to come back again and again!

    We had a gift certificate, luckily, because I would have been so mad to spend that money if it weren’t free. The server was very nice and good at her job, but that’s about all I can say was great. The food was barely edible. The filet was fatty, the salad bland and over dressed. The lobster bisque was so thick, I was offended. It literally looked like pudding, like it had just been simmering, losing all liquid for 3 days. I never send anything back, but I asked for new soup when the served said they could “thin it out” for me 😳. I’ve never seen a filet mignon with so much fat and gristle on it. I didn’t have super high expectations since it’s a chain, but for the prices… I certainly expected better.

    This was our first time at this establishment. The food was delicious. The noise level was high but I understand that there were many business groups there. It was my husband’s birthday and I truly appreciated that there was a card for him, confetti sprinkles on the table, a dessert was offered, and a picture was taken and presented to us. We will advise those who have not been to your restaurant to go. My husband now says it’s in his top 3 nice restaurants to go to in Tampa.

    Our main reason for dinner was a friends get-together, but it coincidentally fell on the day before my birthday. The service was outstanding and the food was incredible. I thought all day about the tuna I planned to order that evening, however they were out. I uncharacteristically ordered a ribeye steak (it was my birthday after all) & oh my gosh was it delicious. It was cooked perfectly & the balsamic marinade just put it over the top. Sounds crazy, but I actually had a dream about this steak the next night. Since I’m more of a pescatarian, it will probably be some time before I order a steak, but I highly recommend Capital Grille and the beyond perfect ribeye steak. Also, they were lovely enough to make a birthday platter for our table. I don’t generally take food pics, but I have one from this occasion bc the dessert platter was beautifully put together and it was thoughtful that Capital Grille remembered and made an extra effort.

    Ordered filet and South African lobster. I asked for the lobster to be cut in the shell since my husband and I were sharing. This has been done in the past with a lovely presentation of lobster and filet. Our meal came split on separate plates. I was a little disappointed but I knew the flavor would be fantastic. To my surprise the lobster had no seasoning as in the past, though it was sweet and delicious on its own. Our waitress could tell something was not right and heard us during pre order talking about sides. She quickly brought us a small side to help the meal. All in all I just felt most of my meal lacked the flavor this meal has had in the past.

    Staff are friendly and attentive. Nice atmosphere. The problem with our experience here was simply the Steaks. I've been to other Capital Grills, and though the steaks aren't amazing, they were good. Nobody in my party got halfway through their steak. It tasted like something you found in the back of a freezer.

    We were shopping at the Mall and stopped in for lunch. We love that the atmosphere is refined , relaxing and quiet enough to have a conversation. We ordered the steak sandwich and the salmon salad. The steak sandwich was superb. A huge, perfectly cooked , tender piece of steak served on a warm baguette .In fact, the sandwich could easily be shared—along with an appetizer. The truffle fries were delicious as well. The salmon salad was good but ordinary. There is room for improvement there. The salmon salad at Seasons 52 is much more flavorful. All is all, we enjoyed our meal and will be back.

    My husband flew in from out of town and we went here for New Years. I didn’t want to go because I thought it would be that snobbish stuffy feeling but boy was I wrong. Nicholas Petruccelli changed that! He was a pleasure to have for a waiter! So professional and the customer first attitude! He made us feel as if we were at home being waited on. The best experience me and my husband have had in years! He should be a trainer. His personality and the vibe he gives is genuine and it shows. We will definitely visit Capital Grill again and ask specifically for him!
