We made a reservation to celebrate our Anniversary. We were greeted with Happy Anniversary on arrival and our table was decorated with glitter. We also received a complimentary champagne toast and special dessert. Dinner was absolutely amazing and our waiter was wonderful. Great experience!!

We always enjoy eating at The Capital Grille and this one was no different. The steaks were cooked to perfection and our server provided excellent service. We love the ambiance and decor of all the Capital Grills. The prices were consistent with other high end...steakhouse. Overall we had a great meal.More

I took some clients to lunch here while in town for a conference. In sum, it was amazing. First, walking in, it just had a great ambience and decor. I knew it would be a special dining experience. All six of us loved our meals....I had the tuna and it was one of the best I’ve ever had. It was perfectly prepared and had a light flavorful sauce. The lobster bisque was incredible. It had multiple large chunks of lobster.More

We were in town for the Winter Classic from St Louis. Tony was the waiter, he was awesome. Everything about the meal was wonderful, soup, appetizers, steaks and of course the wine. As always the Capital Grill does a great job. Thanks again!

We traveled to Minn to take our 12 and 13 year old to see Pentatonix. For a night to remember we took them to Capital Grille for dinner. It did not disappoint. Our waiter Mike was wonderful and treated the kids like grown ups. We...enjoyed the tuna tartare, oysters, lobster bisque, salmon, grilled tuna, and the steak with lobster tails. The salmon was literally the best we have ever had in our life!! While the price tag is not for the faint of heart, mike and the food made this an experience to remember. Thank you so much!!More

Capital Grille in Minneapolis is not the same place as it was pre-pandemic. The front desk was rude, the service was only fair, and the food offerings were restricted (which I understand, but some of the best were off the menu). They were very concerned...about table turnover, I assume to increase revenue with reduced seating. I would go elsewhere until they can get there act together. It's not a great atmosphere.More

Delicious!! This was my first impression of downtown cuisine and it didn’t disappoint. The place was unfortunately boarded up likely due to the ongoing protests & all around civil unrest going on but it’s still open. I made a reservation on OpenTable and had no...issues once I arrived, 10min early. Our waiter, Bjorn was very helpful in the menu selections. We opted for the French onion soup, green salad with Parmesan vinaigrette, salmon entree and several family style sides: wild roasted mushrooms and the au gratin potatoes. Between the two of us there was no food left on the table. The salad was a simple salad with light dressing and made you feel like you got your greens in for the day. The French onion soup was delightful after you got past the symphony of cheese melted on top. My favorite sides as the wild mushrooms, there were seasoned and cooked just right. I think I could of eaten the whole thing by myself. My counterpart loved the salmon and potatoes. We both enjoyed our dinner and cocktails.More

I have never in all my years meeting clients been so Embarrassed by an establishment That I was purchasing dinner from. This place forgot who the customers are. As soon as I walked in the door, the first thing out Of the gentlemen’s mouth was,...you have 1 hour 45 minutes per CDC rules. We don't control how long it takes them to take our order, how long it takes for them to cook our food, how long it takes to get our drinks but we had an hour forty-five minutes. As soon as we approached the hour and forty-five minutes, he was over, telling The waitress to stop serving the water. We had not finished the bottle of wine we purchased yet. Or they have been offered desert. We felt bad for the waitress. She was put in a lousy position. We also noticed people were still in the Captial that had arrived before us. We were singled out for sure. I will never take a client to another capital Grille, anywhere in the country, or hold an event-classless and unprofessional.More

I ordered takeout from this location and the entire experience was unpleasant. First when I arrived, there was no place to park. This was not mentioned anywhere on their website. I finally had to park across the street in the parking garage. I then called...them to say I had arrived but no one answered the phone. I let it ring at least 20 times. I tried texting them but no one replied. Finally I walked across the street in the rain to pick up my order. Despite being ordered 35 minutes ago, it was not ready. I asked one of the servers if I could get some of their different kinds of bread they offer but he stated that it was only available for dinner. He did bring out a couple of rolls but no butter. When I got back to my hotel and tried eating one, it was hard as a rock. The Ribeye sandwich I ordered was greasy and the portion size was much smaller than we they gave me in the Las Vegas location. The Coconut Cream pie was also a disappointment. Not nearly as good as the one in the Las Vegas location. Overall, a poor experience and I will not visit this location again.More
