Amazing $22 “Plates” lunch. The clam chowder was terrific, we split the the chicken sandwich and the salmon and we though both were SO delicious. Our waiter, Michael, was so personable and helpful! So glad we were able to take advantage of the lunch specials!

Service was excellent. I’m a regular at Capital Grill and i was very disappointed in the steak. I ordered the 36oz porterhouse, cooked medium well and the steak was medium rare. The steak was over cooked on the outside and under cooked in the inside. I was unable to eat the steak at all.

As always, we enjoyed a delightful dinner at The Capital Grill. The food and service were, as always, very good. While we would prefer a more modern decorating scheme, the interior is attractive enough despite having only old portraits of men displayed but perhaps I might have missed portraits of women? We will return, I am sure, to celebrate other special occasions.

Unpleasant ( to us) and too loud music made it hard for our table to relax, converse and enjoy the dining experience.


Caesar salad sub, subpar for a fine restaurant.

Worked with John at the bar. He is by far one of the best individuals I have worked with at Capital Grille, and I have been coming for over 10 years. Definitely made the night that much more special! Thanks

Usually we love eating here but this time for our son’s high school graduation it was disappointing. After lovely and delicious meals this past summer and fall, I’m not sure if we’ll be back. The restaurant was busy but not completely full. There was no reason for poor service. Steaks were all undercooked even though we order the same there before and after the food was served the server did not return in a timely manner to check leaving our party almost finished while others were waiting on steak. In addition my husband and I ordered wine by the glass and were served each other’s. The only time the server was efficient was when he came to pick up the check after we paid.

Generally have a very good experience. Love the Cast Iron Garlic Shrimp, my steak was cooked to perfection, and the Brussels were supreme. My one issue had to do with my salad. I ordered the Roasted Beet and Goat Cheese salad. Frankly I think I got a substitution. My beets tasted more like pickled beets and I could not find any trace of roasted pistachios. I probably should have said something, but I did not want to disturb the flow of the dinner. I didn&
