My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversay on 10/18/13 at your location. Everything was special from the red rose on the table to the souvenier photo; capping the meal off with the special complimentary dessert. As always the staff was professional and welcoming. Our server Christopher Hill was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. He was extremely knowledgable about the menu and steered my husband in the right direction in making his entree selection. Needless to say the meal surpassed our expectations...we have come to expect this whenever we dine with you. Last evening we were at a dinner party and shared our wonderful experience with everyone there. Again, thank you for making our special night even more so. Warm regards Patricia Grace

Great restaurant with great service and great food but make sure they don't put you in the back room where it is freezing and pretty closed off from the rest of the place.

Whether it's a business meeting or a hot date, Capital Grille makes a great place to go. What can I say, great menu, food, and service, every time I've been there.

This is a nice treat for me, I'm not a big spender but every once & awhile I'll fold. The service here is great, the staff are awesome & getting seated is usually very quick. They will take your jackets/coats upon request. Each time I've visited, the staff gave off 'good' vibes, customer service here is excellent. The food is awesome, at least what I ordered was. I've had the crab & lobster burger, lobster bisque & truffle fries. I can't recall the dessert but I remember it being very good. The decor is ok, little features are memorable, some paintings will catch your eye. Its dark, almost italian dark but the ambient lighting is enough to make you forget you're in a dark restaurant. The table itself has few distractions which is a plus in my book. If you live here & or if you are visiting, I highly recommend you go. Dress business casual/ business.

Sat at the bar, and Roz was very attentive. Enjoyed their cheeseburger which came with truffle fries. Both were amazing. Also ordered a salad which was of generous portion. The atmosphere was very classy. Large selection of beverages as well. Would definitely recommend Capital Grille.

I arrived at the Capital Grille for lunch completely soaked. While trying to cross the street, I’d slipped and fallen into an icy puddle. However, if the maître d’ noticed the trail of slush I left behind me on my way to the table, she didn’t mention it. The restaurant was warm and bustling. I didn’t have a reservation, but I only had to wait for a few minutes before being seated. After perusing the Restaurant week specials, I ordered the clam chowder, lobster burger and crème brulée. The clam chowder came in a small cup with a packet of oyster crackers. The soup was hot and smooth, but the flavors were underwhelming. I enjoyed the lobster burger—just the right amount of salt, citrus and chew—and the bun was soft without being soggy, although there was far too much lettuce crammed into the sandwich. The tartar sauce was deliciously tangy; the fries passable but not remarkable. Then the crème brulée was served. It was extremely sweet. As someone who enjoys making and eating dessert above all other things, I have an unusually high tolerance for sugar, but this was too much even for me. Too much sugar distracts from the subtleties in a dish—and if it weren’t for the sugar, I’d have been better able to appreciate the crème brulée’s creaminess. Overall, the meal was worth the $20 I paid, but if I’d been shelling out regular prices, I would have left disappointed.
