I've been here quite a few times for work dinners as well as private dinners and the service, food, drink and atmosphere has always been excellent.
My Family and I dined here on Sunday 30th September for dinner. The food was outstanding, we had the Crab Cakes, Pork Belly and the QT Rib Eye which was perfectly cooked and well accompanied with the Pea's please..
The food was great.The wine list was very good and the prices very competitive. The atmosphere lively but still very chilled. The most exceptional aspect of the evening was the service. The staff were amazing. Young people who were friendly, helpful and focussed on their customers.
A couple of very minor service and product hiccups, however the standard of food and service ability of staff negated anything wrong with the night. We had a great time, thank you again to the team, see you soon!
The terrible music - too loud and completely wrong for the venue - sadly makes dining here no where near as good as it could be.
Great steaks and good service wasted. Turn it down and change the selection !! You’d goer so many more repeat customers
This is the second time I have been here to eat while in Canberra, easily on par with Sydney Restaurants. Will be back again next time, great food, great wine list.
Excellent food and service. Great steak. Would like more vegetarian options for my vegetarian guest. Great menu for meat and seafood lovers. Thoroughly enjoyed evening and a great asset to the hotel
What a great night, terrific waiter who was full of fun and kept us entertained while we enjoyed excellent food. Thank you, we will return.
The food was fabulous, crab cakes for entree and pork belly for main course. Everything was delicious! Our waitress was friendly and offered great advice and conversation. Couldn’t ask for any more!
Food, serice and fit out were bang on. This restaurant is sexy.
Service great. Foid disappointing
I've been to this restaurant many times before but last night's service and food quality was very poor. On 2 occasions I had to leave the table to find a waiter for service and our steaks were cold and overcooked.
If this was my first time there I would never go back
We had the 1 kg t-bone to share which was excellent.
New sauces were not so great but as they were on the side was easy to overlook.
Service was also excellent.
The big problem is the terrible music. We went at 6:30 pm and although the place was only half full it was hard to enjoy a conversation as the heavy bass from the poor and over-loud music selection was distracting at best and quite irritating at worst. Very sad as with a better music choice this would be an excellent higher-end meal. Please fix the music!
We had a large group and everyone enjoyed the breakfast. Would have liked to see more fruit on offer but otherwise perfect
Food was just OK
Service was great
The mains were great, the "sweet potato" fries were just regular potato fries, we had bottled mineral water pushed onto us and the wait staff knew nothing of the pre theatre special that I booked for!
Nice atmosphere but the meals were over priced for what you get. A Cesar salad consist of a bowl of lettuce that's it for $19.00. I would not recommend for a work function which is what we attended for to have a meal.
I absolutely would not recommend this restaurant. It is overpriced and the food was underwhelming. My food was cold. We spent almost $100 (between two) for a main and a drink and we both left hungry. $10 for a bottle of water and $10 for a bowl of lettuce (literally- nothing else at all in the salad). Overall - expensive and unexciting.
Good food. Our drinks were forgotten but good overall experience
Food was brilliant, the noise levels are very high with music & is probaly a younger sets choice. Service was good as there were not many in the restaurant.
This is the third but also the final time my wife and I have eaten at the Capitol Bar & Grill. We have appreiciated the friendly service, but the recorded music is annoyingly loud, the ambience is more suited to a pub than a restaurant, the food is OK but a bit overpriced, and the cocktails from the bar aren't up to professional standards. A shame really, when the location lends itself to something better.
Great location, setting is nice and lighting great for a quiet dinner with conversation.
Wine list was pretty good, but staff got our bottle of wine wrong three times but nonetheless friendly staff.
Waited a while for order to be taken despite a quiet night but we didn’t really mind but could see others might.
Food was good, mains were great but entree was so and so, overall I would go back for the vibe and even just to have a few drinks.
Good quality, well served, but rather expensive. I had a nice starter, great steak, a beer and two glasses of wine for over $130,- (per person!)
Loved the evening from beginning to end. Cocktail bar was quiet and service excellent, lots of little corners for privacy or bar seating for those looking for something more entertaining.
Restaurant service was excellent faultless and perfect for a special occasion.
Food was of high quality taste presentation and value.
Would have liked to have seem more vegetarian choices to have as much to choose from add my partner. ..or at least more choice ☺
Will be back with friends next time!
We were disappointed with the evening. The staff brought our main before the Entrée, when we advised them of the issue they put our meals under a heat lamp while we had the Entrée. When the main came we had no cutlery and they forgot to bring the side dish. We have been to this restaurant many times but our last visit was very disappointing
Steak was great, dessert was disappointing
entree was fantastic ... my girlfriend pork belly was very average as was my new york strip ..my daughters veal was fantastic.. wine was good and service was good .. friendly staff but the food was pretty average
A great dinner for two. Quality food, friendly service and trendy location. Will definitely be back.
Food was awesome, staff were friendly and knew the menu well
Kitchen just couldn't keep up. We waited 1.5 hours between entree and mains. When mains came out one of the steak mains and its side were cold and had to be sent back. The '6 hour slow cooked' short rib main was chewy. The staff discounted our bill however the whole experience was very average and not worth the money.
We had a lovely Father's Day lunch - food was fabulous!
Perfect place for a date; delicious food, relaxed atmosphere, fabulous staff and location and notable wine list.
As always, our favourite dinner destination didn't disappoint.
The kids LOVE the kids meals, we love the adult meals.
Waited half an hour to receive bottle of champagne. Lunch menu was limited. Prawn cocktail was horrible. Club sandwich was nice. Will not recommend or return
Good place for dinner. Good menu and wine list.
Good food good service
Excellent food and customer service.
Slight inconsistency with seating. We were 10 minutes early and initially the wait staff weren't going to seat us but had seated the customers ahead of us. This was for a 6pm service time.
We were seated as another wait staff member advised to seat us.
Either you seat everyone or you don't. You don't pick who you seat or not.
Otherwise excellent night would highly recommend it and will go back again.
A great restaurant on the Canberra dining scene with delicious & well cooked meals. However experience was let down by the service. Waited 15 minutes after sitting down before anyone came & took drinks order & provide water. During the meal, water glasses were not refilled until it was drawn to the attention of a wait staff (quite a few staff went pass our table & took no notice). Granted it was a Friday night but we were at the 8.30 seating so it wasn't super hectic.
This place is sexy.
