The service was excellent, but SO WAS THE FOOD. Had a filet mignon cooked PERFECTLY. The Lobster Macaroni and Cheese is a must! Also a very extensive wine selection. Go and Enjoy
Usually a fan, but recently disappointed

I am usually a big fan of Capital Grille, but this past week was very disappointed. Much slower service than usual and did not have our table ready (waiting 30 minutes at the bar and was on a client dinner). That being said, food was still great, just had a sour start.
A GREAT DINING EXPERIENCE!

We had one of the best meals we have ever had. The staff could not have been any better! We have scheduled another visit already. OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!!!
Terrific steakhouse and service

Couldn't have been happier with my first visit to the Capital Grille. The spinach salad was beyond basic, with sizable chunks of bacon, freshly sliced portobellos, red onion and crumbled egg. The lobster bisque was surprisingly full of meat and came with fresh sherry and black pepper served tableside. The porterhouse was enough to feed two (and no one complained when we did indeed split this), and we enjoyed the au gratin potatoes and creamed spinach. Our server even recommended we order half-sizes of the sides. Massive (an understatement) wine list, with half bottles available, too. I had to ask for the by-the-glass list, though, but still found many options. By mixing portions and sharing, the meal was amazingly affordable -- and I've never been able to say that about a top-flight steakhouse. The decor felt clubby and masculine -- some say a steakhouse should -- but to me the standouts were the service and the food.

Although it's part of a national chain, this is one of the best restaurants you could possibly visit while in the city. The service is TOP-NOTCH--it just doesn't get any better. The food is worth every penny. Try the cheesecake for dessert--your mouth (or wallet) will NOT be disappointed.

The service is spot on and the food is not only flavorful and prepared well, but also reasonable. The motzarella and proscuitto appetizer with tomatoes is not to be missed. The steaks are aged and cooked to perfection. The sides are a la carte but large enough for several people to share. The waitstaff are experienced but not snobby. We stop by everytime we are in the area!
Fabulous place & Atmosphere

Spark's steakhouse is going to have some serious competition with this new restaurant. The filet mignon melted in my mouth. The wait staff was also top notch.
