    The ambiance, lighting, warmth, and intimacy of the Capital Grille are huge characteristics of this once spaghetti house. The atmosphere anticipates the wonderful quality of the food selections. It is all here - presentation and intriguing tastes. My pan-seared seabass atop a sauce was a delightful experience. My wife's Fillet Mignon was grilled perfectly and tastefully presented. Capital Grille is a perfect date night choice for a business meeting.

    Great food, attentive service, and a truly special Gem downtown. This is my birthday celebration spot every year for this reason! They have classic recipes that are amazing and time tested. The Kona style is our family favorite, whether on top of the NY strip or even a filet. That coffee rub and creamy shallot butter sauce is dreamworthy. :)

    Impeccable friendly service, delicious food and lively atmosphere make this place our go-to when we want to make any occasion special. We were seated within minutes of our reservation, were greeted at our table by the GM who made sure our cocktail order was taken and Ty took care of us the rest of the evening. The courses came out timely - we were not rushed and didn't feel there was a lag. Started with the beet salad with vinaigrette. The beets were plump and juicy - incredibly fresh. My bone-in ribeye was flavorful and prepared as ordered. Having been to other nice steakhouses I have found that the size of the steak, not the flavor, is too often the focus. Not here. This is great tasting beef. My wife's lamb chops were perfect and we had a lobster tail on the side to share. We had the hashbrowns but skipped the caviar topping and added creamed spinach and asparagus. Fresh berries were for dessert and the blackberries were plump and juicy. Still, being a fan of coconut cream pie, I couldn't say no. And while we had enough to take much of the meal home, we somehow managed to finish the pie. Go here if you want exceptional.

    Our New Years Eve dinner was perfect. The space was quiet as we made an early reservation. Our servers were all excellent. All were helpful but not excessive in visits. The pineapple drink was a nice start to a fantastic meal. The oysters were amazing. The steaks were prepared exactly as expected. We will definitely return.
