First time going to Capital Grille. Unbelievable steaks, lobster Mac and cheese is to die for. Expensive but could have taken steak home, if I wasn't so hungry. I had the balsamic steak, delicious.

Beautiful old school setting with outstanding service - first impressions. Entree and Main were both exceptional - knowledgeable waiter recommendations were so delicious. Steak had an amazing rub and was very tender. I can't fault this dining experience and looking forward to the next visit.
