Outpost of the upscale steakhouse chain offers classic American fare & a clubby, refined setting.- Google

Went here one day after attending academy of music. We were seated rather quickly yet that was basically all the service we received. A bus boy noticed no one came to us and gave us water and bread. We were trying to be patient yet after 15 minutes we left. Mind you, another couple came in 5 min after us and we're served greeted and ordered before us. We do not know whether a racial issue was involved but it definitely seems suspicious. It was a horrible experience and I will never enter that place again and will let others I know of this experience. Never experience something like that in my life and hope to not ever again! Zeros all around!! As we were walking out the hostess that seated us just stared at us stating thank you. Didn't even ask why we were leaving so soon! Completed rude and completely ignored! Hope no couple has to go through this as we did!

it started out bad and never got better. When our party of 4 arrived 15 minutes late of our reservation, the cosigner said that we had to sit in the bar area. we were reuniting with old friends and wanted a more private setting than in the bar. she said that she would check with her manager and she said no seats available in the resturant side. well when walkiong to the Restroom as to my surprise there were MANY...Many tables available. next we were ordering and people kept bumping into or table. The steak was cold- my husband said that he has had better steak at Texas Roadhouse, my steak on the other hand was excellent. The prices are outrageoug for what you get. The old saying " YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR", DOESN'T STAND FOR THE CAPITYAL GRILLE.

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

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.

I have eaten many times in several of the Capital Grille locations around the US and have until this week been a huge fan but the introduction of the ipad wine list does not make sense to me and has spoiled my view of the concept. Choosing wine is as individual as choosing food and I believe that casting your eyes down the wine list is part of the dining experience. Its not wonderful being served by an unknowledgeable server holding an ipad with wine drop down menus, who has to make their way around a table full of people who need to scramble for a wine from memory, rather than safely choosing something from a list in the comfort of their own space and time, before its "their turn"!!!!

Even though it's a chain, this is a great steakhouse. Definitely among the best in the city. Service is always outstanding and for us great as well.

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.
