Sooo impressed! The service was fabulous. The food was delicious and unlike a lot of other fine dining restaurants, the portions were pretty large. I was super impressed that my steak arrived exactly matching the description given by the server when I ordered it. And,...as we expected, the presentation of each course and item was beautiful to the eye. My parents who are avid coffee drinkers with dessert commented that coffee was exceptionally good as well. As a person who has dined in high end restaurants while living in Las Vegas and also Los Angeles, I am extremely impressed at the fact that the capital Grille does not rest on its reputation but that it actually lives up to it. Even in the classiness of the host staff upon entry and exit to the venue. I would like to get special praise to our exceptional servers Ayelen and Ty, Who were both very professional, respectful and worked great together as a team along with food runners. Not much else to say except, go there!! 😃More

We went to The Capital Grille for my birthday, and it was an incredible dining experience. It all started with having a fun and engaging waiter, Jonathan, whose service and recommendations were spot-on. We began our dinner with oysters on the half shell and New...England Clam Chowder, both of which were very good. We then had the wedge salad, which the kitchen split for us and was also delicious. For our entree, we shared the 22-oz bone-in ribeye with sides of creamed corn and glazed brussels sprouts. Everything was excellent, and the steak was one of the best ribeyes we've ever had anywhere. We ended the meal with a lovely complimentary birthday dessert platter. We had a wonderful evening, and we will be back!More

Hi Christopher, Have you ever had a craving that was driving you crazy? That is what I was going through. The night before, my flight had landed late, and I was exhausted. In the morning, that craving was louder than ever. I wanted, no, I...needed a very cold martini, a juicy burger, and a great glass of red wine. I drove to the Capital Grill and walked into the bar, and that is when I met Grace. She was friendly, and professional, and made me feel like I mattered. She made the perfect slightly dirty Grey Goose martini with bleu cheese olives, yum! At 11:45, I realized my 1:30 zoom call was actually 12:30. I was sure I would have to fly out of the restaurant and miss my burger. But Grace jumped into action and offered to set me up in the private room off the bar with the gorgeous red curtains so I could take my zoom in privacy and still get my burger. And it all took place without a hitch. I had my burger and a glass of Prisoner and then jumped on my zoom call from the privacy of that fantastic room. Grace did not have to jump up and make sure my day was drama free, but she did. She made my day and allowed me to have my burger and eat it too. She is a remarkable server who went above and beyond and made me feel special. Grace is an amazing employee, and If she weren’t moving soon, I would do whatever I could to steal her away. Thanks for the great service!More

Valet parking was complimentary. Our table was ready when we arrived. From bread to dessert, the food was amazing! I hope they had a few more spiced rums to their offering, since Sailor Jerry is not my fav, but everyone else loved their mixed drinks....We went for our daughter's graduation celebration and we can't wait to go back!More

The BEST steak I ever had. This was our 1st time here and I enjoyed the atmosphere. We will return. The waitstaff was so nice and accommodating. And I loved the fact they had FREE valet parking. That was definitely a plus.

I like this restaurant. Filet and rib eye are good. NY strip is second rate and not good. Sides are, frankly, hit and miss and need significant improvement. Not sure I’ll be back. Though MUCH better than the meat at that angus barn, the poor...quality of the NY strip and some sides are a serious concern for me. Service was good.More

We had a reservation for 6:30 PM on December 31, 2021. We were a party of 5. Everything at this restaurant is top notch, from ambiance, courtesy treatment and food. Sadly, we didn't get the best waiter to service our table. A little rude and...ill-mannered. Otherwise, I would have given it a 5 star review. Rene Rivera MorilloMore

Valet service available and always a very friendly team that greets you at the door. Wonderful meal amongst friends. The only negative thing I could say about our most recent visit was that we were a party of five and they stuck us at the...first table of the dining room by the entrance so we had a lot of foot traffic walking by our table. I think it would make more sense to put a party of two As the first tables in the dining room by the entrance, put the table up against the wall and then seat of the larger parties at the back of the restaurant. I’m not claiming to have experience as a restaurant manager, but it’s unpleasant to have constant foot traffic right at the entrance. Other than that delicious food with high prices to match.More
